I believe those are just for prototypes and are in no way set in stone for the final product. I don't think they are dumb enough to use Phillips head screws, since that's been the standard for quite a while.

This might be an industry trend, but am I the only one whose first thought was

"man that frame looks thin, I bet it twists/bends easily"

I hope its not the case, as I love the tech and features and the design is beautiful.

How much force are you putting on these frames on a daily basis?

All it takes is 1 bad dive. ask anyone who has bent a Ego9+ Geo or Luxe frame...or hell, go back even further, and ask anyone that bent/broke a Freeflow Raceframe.

Frame bending was a unintentional side effect of decreasing weight, that Planet Eclipse now claims as a Safety feature.

As you can see from the prototypes, we're not too worried about the markers weight. So we haven't shaved every ounce of extra metal off the gun.

The metal thickness on the frame is in fact a bit thicker than some other markers out there. Check out Nummechs Mini frame to get an idea, but we had to leave more metal on it for the self-aligning air couplings, the internal air line, and the palm hump.

Thank you for this excellent information.

I bent a PTP Micro Mag frame back in 1994. I only weighed about 210 lbs at the time.


Oh and the bolt shot out and hit me in the chest. Scary ****.

Lol. FEP didn't design their frame to have "safety features"

I didn't break/bend a frame(aside from those terrible WGP composite frames) until I got my Freeflow Race in 2002. Walked away from that with my tank and the bottom 1/3 of the frame in 1 hand, the rest of my Freeflow in the other.

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.
