What ever happened to the LPR tester that someone was producing a few years back? That's one thing I like about my G6R over my Ego8 is just knowing where my gun sits on pressures. "2.5 turns" just never gave me a warm fuzzy.

I think Violent made those, but good luck finding one.

Would have been nice to have the dart bolt instead of the cure4 with the csl...being that the dart incorporates the soft tip just like the cure 4.

If you actually bothered to read the first post they answer both of those questions. "Ego 11" with no other ego models mentioned would imply that it only is available for the 11.

No doubt there is some R&D money to recoup but it's still salty for plastic and aluminum bits that a lathe with live tooling can spit out in a matter of seconds.

I used to crank out delrin bolts on a manual lathe in no time so I can only imagine the margin being made on these.

Everybody has to make money, and Planet isn't just a few guys in a small store in the UK anymore.

Kudos to Jack and everybody for continuing to produce great new products that keep the Eclipse brand at the top!

This is true for the vast majority of paintball parts... you're paying for the name and associated performance. And this is a release from Eclipse I can finally get behind, a welcome reprieve from the seemingly never ending reiterations of CureX bolts.

There's no way that's true. The screen alone is more than that - even in China.

I don't know where they're getting their numbers (I can't even find your source - all I found was ABC talking about $8 gas in NJ) but this is what I found, and it seems accurate.



http://www.ubmtechinsights.com/apple-iphone-5/

On topic - yeah the price for the kit is steep. But look at it like this; you're paying the standard price for a new Ego CURE bolt and about $40 for the first Ego valve that's worthy of the rest of the marker.

So can anyone tell me if the extra o-rings will cause more breach wear than the stock bolts? Or prevent it? Or no change at all?
And as I understand the weighted bolt will make higher rates of fire harder to achieve?
Thanks in advance

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
