New Planet Eclipse Etek 5

Looks like it's got the lever in it!
I like the "Welcome Eclipse Dealers" banner in the background

I hope this one has ejection straps unlike the HDE one they released

I'm interested in learning if it has the lever system in it like the LV1. Looks sharp for an Etek.

So the rumors are true that Planet did have another new marker coming. Could be only a refreshed Etha or Etek, so new Etek it is!

Now, let's see if the rumors of a new DLX marker are true as well!

Don't wanna get too excited but it LOOKS like there's a large window on the back side...possibly an OLED/LCD screen?

Looks damn nice honestly. Eteks are getting where the proto line was towards the end with the pm8. There will be a point where there is no point to buy the newest high end(lv2) or Whatwver because the other one is such a great bag for your buck

Outstanding PE

Well they finally slimmed down the frame/grips so now it won't feel like utter crap holding it. I vonder if it comes with a cure 3 or 4 now.

It looks too much like the window from an etha just with a larger space for the LED

From the length it looks like it could even be a cure 5

I wouldn't see why PE wouldn't include the same bolt that is in the LV1

Seems like it has the lever valve technology in it. If so, with maybe a screen also, it's a huge transformation! Would be a really nice marker for people with a thinner wallet!

If it's got the lever valve (frame looks awfully high up in the lower tube so this is a good possibility) then it'll be killer. It's got the LED on what looks to be a very comfy frame and internal LPR (huge plus) so those are major steps.

Unfortunately, used LV1's will likely be just marginally more costly so they'll have that to combat.

You're right. New ETek or used LV1 will be an interesting question as LV1 prices continue to come down. Perhaps Planet will be releasing a new LV2 around PB Extravaganza?? That would be the two year anniversary of the LV1 and would make the distinction between latest ETek and LV clearer.

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.
