Planet Eclipse LV 1.6

Planet Eclipse LV 1.6

The old Rivalry is back! We basically wanted to revive two of our most legendary platforms and bring back the Ego versus Geo battle. We are aware that most of our current line-up is now Gamma and GP Core based, but we know from what players have been saying over the past year or so that there is still a lot of love for our more traditional platforms, predominantly the LV/Ego/poppet layout, and the last iteration of the Geo, the Geo3.5 with the IV Core.

Mechanical CS2 from Planet Eclipse

Mechanical CS2 from Planet Eclipse

Jack Wood had this to say, "Our current range topper is the CS2, and the GP Core, like the standard Gamma Core in the Emek and M170R, makes a perfect mech shooter. But just like we took the Gamma Core and turbo charged it for the CS2 we have completely re-worked the mech frame for the CS2. There is a completely new 3-way valve with integrated QEV. Then there is the mech trigger version of the Lever Valve in the LV line..."

New Planet Eclipse Geo IV

New Planet Eclipse Geo IV

The new Geo vs Ego rivalry is alive here at Paintbll Extravaganza with the Geo IV making its debut.

I asked Jack Wood about it and he had this to say: "The Geo4 will feel like an up-to-date Geo3.5 It has very similar proportions, stance, and shot characteristics, but is obviously hoseless and uses a lot of the newer tech from subsequent guns. Everyone who has shot it has said it is one of the most natural feeling and ergonomically on-point guns we have produced, and the IV Core gives it that proper old skool spool valve wooshy feel that is missing from a lot of the newer tech spool valve guns. It really is a gun that needs to be held and shot to appreciate how good it feels in the hands. I love what we have done with it."

New Empire SYX 1.5

New Empire SYX 1.5

The Empire Syx is seeing some revisions and all new Syx's coming from the GI Sportz will have the 1.5 revisions. GI is making kits to upgrade existing guns for stores and at events. The easiest way to spot a 1.5 is to look for the shorter ASA knob or turning it on and the board should say 1.4. Currently the new 1.5 is available in the same colorways as previous Syx markers but new colors are coming.

Paintball Gear of the Year: 2019 Edition - winners announced!

Paintball Gear of the Year: 2019 Edition - winners announced!

I reached out to Industry professionals, pro players, internet loudmouths and generally smart or well-connected paintball people to see what their favorite gear was of all of 2019. I also asked people here on PbNation and on social media. I didn't limit it to just markers. I asked them all privately what gear that aren't sponsored to use, didn't make, or weren't involved with but wish they were. I asked people within the industry what do they wish they made/sold/serviced? I asked professional players what piece of gear do they wish they used? I also took it one step further and asked, were there any great events in 2019 that raised the bar? Or simply what was the best event you attended or you heard about this year? How about any exceptional fields? These are the overall winners for 2019.

Tontons shoot Eclipse in 2020!

Tontons shoot Eclipse in 2020!

In a surprise move, the French Toulouse Tontons have switched from MacDev to Planet Eclipse for 2020. The Tontons absolutely killed it in semi-pro last year but since they didn't play all of the events, they were not in contention to win a pro spot in the US. They did accept a pro spot in Europe though for 2020 and it is rumored they will play semi-pro again in the United States this season.

Fight Club JT Pro-Flex

Fight Club JT Pro-Flex

Is this the first private label JT Pro-Flex mask? I know we aren't supposed to talk about Fight Club but they are the ones who printed it right on what looks like a woven strap!

I am pretty sure it is the first JT Flex (not Empire E-Flex) with printing on the flexible bottom. If the real mask looks half as good as this rendering, I think they have a hit!
