Lets hope when they halted 1.5 production it was to start 1.6 production, so they just have to get them shipped, which is its own problem right now

From The Planet Eclipse website. Though it doesn’t really mention production status. Is paintball an essential business?

I would like to get my LV1.6 but all the fields around me are closed anyways.

1.6 guns still have to come from the UK to get here.

They were assembling Emeks at Planet Eclipse USA when I talked to them on Friday.

Has anybody heard when they are going to start shipping the new LV1.6? I saw a blog post a couple weeks back from PE that says production hasn't started yet but was wondering if anybody had heard more than just that.

As of May 18, production hasn't started yet. I did see a 1.6 at my local field surprisingly.

That was the blog post I was referring to. One of the guys who works at my field was thinking it might be August before we see them start shipping but that was a guess on his part. I was just wondering if anybody knew more than that.

I would suggest crossing the concerns PE addresses in their May update with the plans their government has outlined for re-opening the country: https://www.gov.uk/government/speech...us-10-may-2020

Until they start phase 3, I think it's going to be hard for PE to get back to full production capacity.

We are slowly starting to re-open production. We have to run reduced production capacity due to social distancing guidelines in the work place. This not only effects production in our own facility, but also in our sub-contractors, like our anodisers.

We are still also struggling with limited transatlantic shipping due to limited numbers of commercial flights that normally take our shipments from UK to US.

But things are slowly getting better and we are pushing through what we can, when we can. Sorry I can't be more specific than that right now.

Pfft what does this guy know.

Seriously though thanks for the update Jack. We're running into similar issues where I work just like everybody else in the manufacturing sector I'd imagine. We were shut down here over a month because we couldn't get parts. It's a tough situation for everybody.

Totally understandable, I was fortunate enough to have a player at my local field let me shoot the LV1.6 he had. It's a super nice marker, and definitely a fan of the milling. I know my team and I are looking forward to their release.

I think just yesterday Jack mentioned he was finally back in the office for the first time a while. I’m sure they’re going to do what they can to get up to speed but I wouldn’t guess that they’re operating at 100% from day 1 of opening the doors.

I’m sure they’re all going to miss watching Antique Roadshow for 3 hours a day or whatever British people did during lockdown, but it’s nice to hear they’re coming back to work.

My question is why is the geo 4 $100 less than the lv1.6. When I look at the features , the geo 4 seems to have alot more new technology borrowed from the CS1 and CS2 and it also has a serviceable solenoid. Is the lv1.6 just that much more costly to produce , even though not much has changed in 7 years since the orginal lv1. I know the lv1.6 comes with a carbon fiber tip , but I am just trying to see where , the $300 jump in price from the 1.5 came from. That said , I am sucker and since I missed out on the 1.5 when it was released, I going to buy a lv1.6 .

The 1.6 has a completely new solenoid which I imagine contributes to most of that cost difference.

Probably don't want to confuse people on which marker is the top dog geo 4 or CS2.

they also know that the people buying it new for $1195 would pay $1295, so why not?

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.
