@Commited - Sure there isnt much difference under stock but what is the weight with battery and barrel of these? Also are the electronic and mechanical tuning "Planet approved"?

I'm really tired of all the "cocker this" and "cocker that"...Now this may cause some people to get butt hurt but....cockers are old tech...get over it and deal with it.

"This quad core processor is dope, but I sure wish it was a 386sx..."

Meh, in my head this reminds me of when they brought Ripper milling to the intimidators. The Cocker and Angel rippers were nice (cocker being the best) but the milling on the timmys was just ugly.

Sure it works that way for televisions, but think about it in terms of classic cars. Classic cars are old and outdated. They're not near as safe as new cars, but people still have lots of love for them because they're unique and have a personality. It's the same thing for the special milled autocockers.

About time someone besides Bob Long did a true Pl marker. It's not worth $1500 though. These days, I don't know of a marker on the market that is.

My friend Simon once told me to stop trying to please everyone and focus on producing quality products. There will always be haters no matter what, first they complain guns are too plain, so companies anno them wild colors, people complain.... companies listen and produce murals via graphic anno on said guns, people complain.... companies listen and mill guns, people complain.... companies add heat seeking paintball system to the gun, people complain.

You'll never please 100% of the people 100% of the time and we're ok with that (we'll just keep making custom guns until everyone is happy ).

We are thinking outside of the box and willing to take chances, willing to drop a considerable amount of time and resources into a project such as the TWSTR LV1 because we believe in the product we are bringing to market. Is it for everyone? absolutely not. But consider this aspect of it: We have produced a custom milled variant of a super-highend marker AND brought it to market for LESS that all the graphic annodized offerings of the LV-1 (MAP price of 1549.95) and beat that price by $50 (TWSTR LV1 = $1499.99). Not to mention all the add-ons, accessories and lifetime labor warranty that is included.

People need to look past the fact it's "an electro" and open their eyes to the fact we (as an industry) are about to witness a new wave of custom markers, as we feel this will raise the bar for the other custom shops. We hope this elevates the Private Label market and brings the creativity of other shops out of the woodwork.

Nice, milling. I hope a little more is done for the cocker though.

Seconded.
I remember someone ragged on another forum poster for not being "pre-2007"
on the forums.

Much hate will be said, but the best thing to come out of the autococker days would probably be the autococker threads.

These are not being custom milled and all in house? Sounds like a PL marker to me instead of a custom marker. But that's just me, I'm big about details like that.

Well said man. Focus on your job and not to the 0,0001% that WILL NEVER be pleased with anything. I think you're offering a great product at a very good price. You will have news from my pp soon

Planet Eclipse milled these guns in the UK, which 100% insures the factory warranty is intact and honored.

Any unauthorized modification (anno/milling) to Planet Eclipse markers typically voids all warranties. We simply were not going to put our customers in that position.

I think they look good, and relative to what the LVL 1 and graphic ano LVL 1 cost, it's a good price point. That said, I simply can't justify that much for a marker. I'm not the target audience though. Hope they sell well and you can't beat free lifetime labor with a quality company. If you were in the market for a LVL 1, this would be my buy.

Can't complain about that. Spoke with Anthony about this, SO excited for you guys!

Graphic anodizing does not equal private label.
This factory custom milling does equal private label.
It costs less than a graphic anno? WIN.

Hats off to you guys, great work!

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.
