New Planet Eclipse Marker: introducing the Geo 3.5: videos and more added to 1st post

Hustle did this excellent review and asked us to share it. Watch it.

GEO 3.5 - PERFORMANCE + EFFICIENCY AT ITS CORE!

There have been few upgrades to a markers drivetrain that have yielded such significant performance improvements as the IVCore brought to the Geo platform in GSL. The IVCore brought about not only a significant uplift in outright efficiency to the Geo, but also noted improvements in both feel and sound signature.

So overwhelmingly positive was the response to the implementation of the IVCores new breech-sensing technology in GSL that the next logical step was to make its benefits available to a much wider audience than just the 750 fortunate GSL owners.

SO HERE WE STAND WITH THE GEO3.5

The synthesis of the Geo3.1's style, aesthetics and ergonomics and the GSL's implementation of the IVCore drivetrain. Sleek and comfortable with the benefit of increased efficiency, quieter sound signature, softer shot and true pop-up tool-less bolt removal in one streamlined package.

The Geo platform has gained huge popularity amongst tournament and woodsball players alike. The Geo3.5 will help to press home its advantage to Speedball players with its minuscule amount of barrel rise even during ramping and its exceptional efficiency that gives them the ability to carry enough paint for the longest of matches or points. In the woods, the light weight of the Geo combines with its now even quieter sound signature to make it the perfect companion for those extended periods on the field and for taking those shots when you don’t want to give your position away.

GIVING THE USER CONTROL

Internally and externally the Geo3.5 utilizes the latest technologies developed by our engineers. The Electronics are fully adjustable via the on-board backlit LCD display and graphical user interface. Or if you prefer, with the optional ePortal kit you can connect the Geo3.5 to your laptop or home PC to adjust parameters, download latest versions of firmware or customize the graphics on the display. Mechanically, the Geo3.5 uses a Custom MAC solenoid valve system that drives the IVCore and controls the filling of the firing chamber. As with all other Geo3 versions the speed of the bolt is externally adjustable via a dial on the trigger guard. Selecting a slower bolt speed reduces shot signature and recoil resulting in a soft, quiet shot; where a higher bolt speed will allow devastating rates of fire. The Geo3.5 offers both these options and an infinite range between.

In fact the Geo3.5 is all about giving the user control. For example, there are magnetic and leaf spring trigger return mechanisms as well as micro switch and optical trigger sensing circuits to choose from. Both an all-metal multi-ported bolt and the latest full rubber-tipped anti-rollback bolt are included with the marker. With so many choices available as standard the user can quickly and easily tailor the feel and performance of the Geo3.5 to their specific requirements and preferences.

THE GEO LEGACY

The Geo3.5 continues the legacy of the AT Pipe system. First designed and implemented on the EgoLV1 and later ported over to the Geo line on the Geo3.1, the AT Pipe system removes the AT Pipe need for macroline from the POPS ASA to the inline regulator. Instead air is transferred via the AT Pipe from the frame to the new SL4 inline regulator in a way that allows the marker to still be quickly and easily stripped, cleaned and maintained.

Of course every single Geo3.5 is constructed using the very best materials possible and meticulously hand built whilst undergoing rigorous inspection and testing at every stage. We do everything possible to ensure that each marker that leaves the facility is as close to perfection as possible.

But all of that is mere detail. It’s on the field where the Geo3.5 was designed to deliver. Not just a bunch of words on a spec sheet but a tool built to deliver devastating performance. A marker built to win.

The gun shoots and handles just like a GSL. It is similar to a GEO 3.1 but it's a little smoother, a little quieter, and a fair bit more efficient. It's also a bit quicker and easier to pull the bolt. Nothing to unscrew, and no reaching in to grab the can and bolt. It all just pulls out quickly and easily in one assembly.

I have to admit, I'll be a little disappointed if it's a 3.5. While it may come with an improved engine for efficiency similar to the GSL , it likely won't come with the GSL back cap. If that is the case, that means we'll have to wait at least another year before we see that feature on the regular Geo. That would suck, because the current screw in back cap set-up seems so antiquated for high end guns. Not to mention, having to pull the bolt out separately. I hope I'm wrong, but I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Looks like Exalt made them a branded cleat. I think they did it for GI too. Exalt makes good stuff, I don't blame PE.

New gun, yes. "3.5", no.. They're never released a ".5" version of anything before. Goodbye, resale on the 3s, 3.1s and GSLs!

Is anybody thinking what I'm thinking? Could they be releasing the Polar GSL? Probably not but that would be cool! We could be seeing something along the lines of a new geo or LV2 or even possibly word on the LV1SL. Or it could be as simple as the new etek and etha. But then again it could be anything, but from what I can see from the designs on the ad I can suspect it will be something special

Now that you say that, it does lead me to believe that they are going to release a Geo 3.5

Because like you said, why else would they say 3.5 days

I really hope that it has enough "new" Features for us unlike the 3.1 where all they added where the AT Pipe and the LV1 style grips.

Hasnt' the geo 3.1 only been out for a few months? I don't expect a new geo for a while.

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.
