Im not really a fan of it. It seems like they have achieved perfection and now making small gimmicks to keep people buyin.

Wonder if any big changes for the ego 12

I've owned SL's and will never consider getting this one... the gold and colors are disgusting. Looks like something that Ali G would show up with to play paintball.

I mean, even the rear of the bolt lines are ugly!

agreed, I love SL egos, not a fan of the CSL. Hopefully it will be produced in other colors besides gold as well

How did Don Omar get on the design team? I guess making the current SL really distasteful is another great way to keep them rare.
I'll just have to keep me SL74 and SL94

Yep, Not for me unless they make a non gold version.

I wonder what the actual production numbers will be?

SL94 was the most manufactured SL I believe

SLs was a small run....

I have to disagree with you there. I personaly LOVE gold parts on markers, as evident by the two in my sig. And gold markers have always been popular with PE consumers.
But also PE's site only says that there are the launch colors. Never said that it would be their only colors.

500 means to me that some brand new in box should HOPEFULLY still be available when I am ready to pick one up come September

Stop flaming and trolling people for their opinions... That is the only immaturity I see in this thread.
Multiple Ego models has been the norm since 2006. The base Ego and then the SL....every year....without fail. He knew that.

I'm not getting one this year if that makes you feel better. Mortgage forcing me to make budget cuts. But after seeing the barrel tips and the gold, I really wish I was getting one.

For everyone who is like 'i'll wait 6 months for the Ego12 to have all this stuff' - the 12 might very well have the frame and the C4 but I don't see the 12 getting the barrel tips or the smaller bore sizes obviously.

Before anyone starts spreading rumors, that's not based on any inside knowledge. That's just my opinion based on what we've seen in past years.

I have the same opinion. As cool as it would be for all ego's to come with a carbon fiber barrel, I don't see it coming true. I am very curious about the C4 though!

I can see the 12 coming with a 685 or something, but probably not the 681. As for the tips - I'd expect Eclipse to make a CF tip for sale, but not with the gold parts.

Or the boost kit changing to a 681 and 685 and keeping the 689 stock.

OK, so seeing as how everyone likes to pull facts and figures out of the air, take statements out of context and just generally get things in a muddle, here is the Official PE line:

“Planet Eclipse are now actively working to move away from annual releases of all their markers within their range. The Etek and Geo have never been in an annual cycle. The Ego will also be pulled out of its annual cycle. In layman’s terms this means there will NOT be an Ego12.”

There is no plan to stop production of any of the Current markers or any of the off-shoots of each of those models (SL etc). What it does mean is that we will have longer to develop the replacements of each of the models giving each model a longer lifespan, something I believe customers are looking for in the current market. We don’t simply want to release an EGO12 with a few minor tweaks and expect people to buy it.

I hope that puts paid to a lot of the rumors that are floating around and we can finally draw a line under that subject. Feel free to quote me on that.
