Nope. Instead Jack pulled the ol' switcheroo and turned the thread into the debate on the naming of solenoid parts and a ton of other fancy mumbojumbo I cannot understand.

We found out the next itineration of the Ego will not be called LV2.

I love the debate on terminology and the mechanical discussion from Jack, Irony, and Wetworx.

Like Jack said, most players don't care but in here we have two industry innovators and Wetworx (TBH: I don't know your credentials random internet person but you seem well grounded in how this works) discussing how markers work. Yeah I know that is some nerd stuff but still, intriguing none-the-less.

I am intrigued by what eclipse puts out because their level of dedication behind the product and how they make things work. To me, this is the thread you should be reading if you care about anything other than gun go bang bang and that makes me happy happy.

Let's all just take a step back and be patient. Eclipse would be making a huge mistake to ignore how many players fell in love with the EGO. As well as to ignore how many players still prefer the LV1's over all other newer Eclipse releases not to mention all other manufacturers flagship guns. A successful business like Eclipse takes notes on consumer demand and creates products to meet that demand.

Some say the delay is caused by a search for an affordable and reliable solenoid. Perhaps that's true and perhaps not.

I'm convinced Eclipse won't be abandoning their previous flagship platform; just like I'm convinced Field One won't let the Intimidator die off either. The only question is which marker will come first. The 'G7r' or the 'LV2'. Hang in there paintball faithful good things are brewing.

If the tech talk on solenoids was about anything else besides a paintball gun I wouldn’t give it any attention. Since it is I’m squinting my eyes at the screen in hopes that any of it will make sense. Alas I’m SOL. So we wait till PBE to confirm guesses.

You’re not wrong, it the nostalgic value a stacked tube marker provides and some people simply prefer the feel of it would in itself generate tons of sales.

I totally get what you’re saying. When you first shoot one it does feel and sound strange compared to past poppet valve markers.

Everyone loves the LV1 platform...BUT...when the CS1 and CS2 took off, the sales ended up saying otherwise. I'm sure Eclipse takes this into consideration. So none of us should be so crushed if we find out that there isn't actually an "LV2" we all love the last one, but it's hard to deny the sales figures, the poppit platforms took a BIG hit. Lets keep our wits about us if it doesn't happen, I'm sure we'll all survive

No way Nick plays for a non-PE team if there really was a LV2.

I am kind of doubting it.

I saw him at the local grocery store real early one morning but not on the field.

Hey Jack, what marker did you use at Fulda ?

M170R is what I used.

I was indeed there as you know, and I was using a paintball marker on the field. There was definitely tape involved....

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.
