This is a collectors chance to own a piece of paintball history.
I am selling my own, very special signature Coyut SL74 marker.
This is the one and only ever factory produced hand polished version of a SL74 in a polished gold dust dark brown color.
It also has factory engraved COYUT42 in the rear.
Eclipse made this marker especialy for me. So its a one of a kind Eclipse product.
Condition is almost new out of the box.
It comes with the original box, all spares, matching full barrel kit plus i put tons of spares and some special stuff like a SL3 Reg and other stuff on top.
I am not interested in any trades so do not try!
Only serious offers $3000 plus shippment. This is a collectors marker.
I do not ship first
, post here first and PM me with any questions or offer for payment/shipment options. The marker is currently based in Switzerland.
Thank you for looking and have a great day.
Mathias aka Coyut
PS: Here's some Historic information on how this marker came alive
I was working with Planet markers since they started with the Ego5 in 2004.
Supporting people on and off the field.
Doing more and more stuff for them brought me to the idea of bringing a official Service Center to Switzerland which would help people, as they had to send stuff over the borders to Germany for warranty repairs. Sending markers out of the country was always a hassle.
Planet knew me already pretty well and they loved the idea. So after some additional training and a few visits at the HQ in England i was awarded the three star tech level. This is the highest level you can reach without becoming an actual Eclipse employee. As an example: Nicky T is 4* and Jack Wood 5*
At some point when we were testing new stuff and Nicky T was visiting me a few times in Switzerland i thought it would be nice to make a special SL66 which would attract a lot of attention to furter promote the new marker on the field and in the internet. Ledz, Joules, Jack and Nicky really liked that idea.
But 2006 was just to buisy at Eclipse for such a project. Producing such a marker in the production line was just to time consuming and not matching UK production plans.
I brought the idea back when working as a Eclipse Tech at the Millennium Series.
So at some point later in that year they contacted me and offered me a upcomming, custom SL74 and asked which color i would prefer.
After having owned a gold polished Nexus Ego 6.5 i really wanted a polished gold version. But Jack told me they would not do any polished bodys anymore at all. They would not even have a contracted partner anymore to do some body mirror polishing. So i told them some different colors and waited to see what will happen.
Planet decided to build some 3* tech special markers for very valued people, but didn't really tell us they planed it.
Mid 2007 Nick told me in a regular chat they would have a nice marker for me to order. He didn't tell me any details. I just got a price and the promise i would like it.
(The other 3* tech version was Stephans RST77 black dust SL74 version)
So a couple of days later a box hit my table with the coyut SL74 marker in it.
And as you can guess it was a big surprise. They actually produced a single polished tech version just for me. On top of that they milled our signature in the bodys back as you can see in the pics. At this point they did not really do any "custom" millings any more.
The rest is history
The marker pics were shared and shown in about every paintball forum around the world and they were also printed in many magazines.
You can probably show pics to anyone reading paintball news in 2007 and they will recognise this marker.
So as a conclusion. The Coyut SL74 is a on off Eclipse build as a big credit for valued work on and off the field, in the internet, bringing in ideas an much much more.
But as time goes by life writes different chapters.
I quit playing tournaments a few years ago, legal changes made it more difficult to sell parts in Switzerland, most paintball fields died. Also my part time online shop didn't run as good anymore. So I shut it down in 2012.
I was also suddenly doing more work for my dayjob employer all over Europe, which brought me even further away from paintball.
Instead of leaving the Coyut SL74 unrecognized dusty on a shelf i decided to look out if a collector or player has interest to bring it back in some focus and shine.
As you can see its a very special marker and a lot of memories and stories hang on it. So it has its value. At least for me.
