It's most definitely a new breed. I got to play with one yesterday and it rocks. It won't take me long to convince the rest of my team to buy these. Just one road trip to planet and they will all be as sold as I am. Thats why I love living just half an hour away from Planet here in the UK. we don't just get our markers serviced by a tech, we get them serviced by jack himself.

so does it fire like a timmy or shocker? i'm interested in how true the ball flight paths are. i like the new design from planet and if truely does outperform the timmy then my team may just be using these babies.

I sorta like the nme more there running at 50-60 psi and they come with was and stuff and i was looking between the nme and ego and dont get me wrong the ego is hella sexy it makes autocockers so much better. Ive been shooting autocockers for a while and need to try something else so imma go with the nme. That thing is hella nice though!

SilEntOldsOuL,

In the videos (which can be found at www.planeteclipse.com) the ball's fligt path is quite straight for an open bolt gun. Now, I don't know if that has something to do with the Shaft Solo Barrel that they were using, or if maybe its the desgin of the gun. But if the guy wouldn't have bin moving the gun so much, im willing to bet the shot grouping would b pretty tight.

I love this gun. It's exactly what I'm looking for. I'm going to sell my DM4 to get one of these.


It makes me think of a Naughty Dogs timmy, with the back cut off like that. I love the ND timmy, though, so it's all good.

::shakes head::

It doesn't matter whether it's an open or closed bolt marker. That doesn't affect the trajectory AT ALL! Accuracy is determined by paint to barrel match, consistant air/regulation, and paint quality. Lower recoil can also help a player hold a marker more steady but the type of gun itself has nothing to do with accuracy.


Considering there hasn't been any diagrams of the internals and the fact that the ram and hammer are one piece("Rammer") I'm going to say it's a timmy clone until Eclipse shows otherwise. Come on PE, I'm waiting.

Well, depends - sometimes the marker does make a difference in accuracy if you take into account the Recoil.

A Bushy has a pretty good kick on the gun which can make the trajectory a bit off, especially if you don't have big arms that make it seem like nothing. If your a scrawny little guy with little arms, you would feel the recoil of the gun more.

But in most cases your right about the barrel to paint match.

Where is that video clip of the Ego in action by the way, I must have missed it. I'm going to check out the website again and see if I can find it. Only clip I saw was the NME clip but not the EGO clip.
