Footer Youtube Jack Wood of Planet Eclipse answers 100 of your questions! Watch the video now!

Update: We are LIVE!



That 4k is beautiful! And clearly worth the wait.



Jack Wood from Planet Eclipse is currently on lockdown and is getting bored, so Eclipse thought you guys would want to ask him some questions about… well, anything. In fact we’d prefer your questions NOT to be too technical, although it does make sense for some of them to be tech-based.

So if you want know what Jack is doing during this crazy time, what his drink of choice is, if he manages to brush his teeth or what advice he can give you to maintain your marker then drop them right here. Try to avoid run-of-the-mill stuff that you can find out from the Eclipse Tech Hub; Jack will just ignore those.

He’ll pick out ones that are good value and maybe even some useful ones and post a video response on Thursday 9th at around 3:30pm BST.

Fire away!!

Hey Jack,

I’ve been out of the paintball scene since i moved to the desert 12 years ago.

In short, what’s changed in paintball during that time? How would you suggest i get back into the game? (Moving back to Uk).

Where do you see paintball (all forms) going post-covid19? Break out the crystal ball.

Here in NZ the fields were struggling to survive even six months ago. Now they're forced to shut down for months I'm not sure how many will live through.

From an innovation stand point, what is/was a paintball product that really impressed you? Other than your own.

Thanks

What would you say the biggest challenges are when designing a marker? What sort of things do you get stuck with?

Ok, have you even shot and EGO 11? But seriously I'll ask a few to help with the at home boredom. What is your favorite ano/color scheme that planet has done?
Which marker holds a special place in your heart from a design stand point?
Autococker or Automag?
Rum, Gin or Vodka?
From a product stand point do you think that we are begining to hit the cusp of innovation where advancements and improvements are becoming more about creature comforts and fine tuning vs. Actually inovating?
Last question, If you could only use one, Stacked tube poppet or spool?

Do you feel that an electro cocker would be good to bring back? Can you explain which ever way you go.

If you could build a paintball marker in an unlimited format, like F1 or MotoGP aka money is no object. What technologies would you explore?

The obvious question would be, "Would he rather fight one horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?"



On paintball related things, does he ever worry about oversaturation of the marketplace, having markers in virtually every level of pricing and multiple in some pricing levels? How does he and PE in general think through the issue of when you hit too much of a good thing?

But mainly, big duck versus a herd of tiny horses.

With PE being the one of the top brands in paintball, where do you want to see PE go from here? Where would you like to see paintball as a whole? Do you think we can get back to where it was in 2004/5/6?

From an engineering standpoint, how can markers evolve further? It seems like we are at a Moore’s law for efficiency and I’m not sure there are needs for additional features. Perhaps new styles of play would need to come about to push innovation elsewhere. Thoughts?

Not really a unique question but, what is your biggest regret at planet eclipse? Is there anything that when you think back really just slipped through your fingers or any decisions that really came back to haunt you?

Follow up question, I believe at one point you said you have a golf R. Still have it? What are your thoughts on it?

Jack,

Last we heard PE had zero interest in getting back to building autocockers. Have you guys given any thought to re-releasing your blade hinge frame (not the eblade)? There is still an immense amount of demand for them and they’re very much highly coveted frames.

Regardless of what you do thanks for making such badass frames to begin with

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.
