Planet Eclipse Cure3 Bolt for EGO & Etek Markers

By utilizing the latest technology in High Speed Video Imaging we have been able to further refine the already outstanding Cure2 Bolt for the Eclipse Ego.

The Cure3 allows for perfect positioning of the ball in the breech for every shot, and the new upper ramp profile offers 2 distinct improvements over its predecessor. The first is that is further reduces the impact of the second ball in the feed stack and the subsequent compression of all the balls in the stack above it. And secondly, it allows faster load times as the stack is already partially lowered into the breech as the bolt starts to retract meaning a shorter drop distance and time during the loading phase of the cycle.

The Cure3 Bolt will fit all previous Egos, but will require the fitment of the standard pin from your existing bolt. Spare Plunger and Spring Included.

Planet Eclipse EGO9 & GEO

There has been a largeΒ  amount of buzz going around about when Planet Eclipse would be releasing a glimpse of the new marker for the 2009 season. There has been plenty of talk of if it will be a new design with a spool for internals or the usual Planet machine house with poppet valve internals. Either way here are the teaser photos and some photos of testing out the new marker. Check out the EGO 09 discussion over at PbNation for more flames and trolls than a Harry Potter movie.

Be sure to join the Planet Eclipse Fan Page if you use Facebook to keep up to date on any more new details, photos or videos.

Don’t forget to ask at your local paintball shop to

see if you can pre order your EGO 09 or GEO of just go

directly to Planet Eclipse

When Planet Eclipse manufactured the first Ego it created an overnight revolution in the world of tournament-level Poppet-Valve based markers. By combining reliability, efficiency, performance, ease of maintenance, light weight, balanced design and compact dimensions in a package that was as easy to tech and service as it was to shoot high-speed strings on the field, it became an instant success with players, techs, and dealers alike.

4 years on, and with 3 years of development and testing behind it, Eclipse are ready to do to the Spool-Valve market what they did to the Poppet-Valve market back in late 2004.

The Eclipse Geo has been designed and developed to neutralise all the traditional negative aspects of spool-valve based markers. It offers exceptional air efficiency. It has the fewest possible number of dynamic seals. Yet it still has a Gas Supply Isolation mechanism built into the firing cycle. It is as easy to tech as any other Eclipse marker. It is incredibly reliable. It is compact, balanced and amazingly lightweight. It is everything that Eclipse stands for.

Yet there would be no point in the development of this product if it eschewed the core values of what people like and demand from a spool-valve marker. Smooth operation with a low reciprocating mass (the bolt is the only moving part and weighs less than 18grams). Low operating pressure between 110-135psi. And a quiet sound signature.

What the Eclipse Geo now offers is all of the benefits of a spool-valve marker, with none of the drawbacks.

Add to that the features that have become synonymous with Recent Eclipse markers such as Def-Tek feed technology, Heads-Up LCD module, Opto and Micro trigger operation, Break Beam Sensor System, Dual magnetic and Spring Trigger Return System, light weight and ergonomic design, simple maintenance and bullet-proof reliability, and the result is a marker that draws on all the key Eclipse traits and principles to add an exciting new shooting platform to the range.
