Planet Eclipse release CSL EGO Line – Panther, Prestige & Spekta

Planet Eclipse steps up their 2011 line of markers




ECLIPSE CSL EGO

 “Enriched with Carbon and Gold, the CSL is both striking and beautiful. From the seamless flow of the barrel and frame to the intricate detail and craftsmanship of the body. The new CSL is the epitome of class and performance with a distinctive pedigree and history that is only found in the SL mark”…

 The CSL is all about the detail. Gold screws clamp the gold-detailed grips onto the new flush fitting and screwless frame. Gold Thumbwheel and Screw on the silky smooth, bushed and re-designed C-Lever Clamping Feed. Gold LPR Torpedo and Bolt Pin. The bespoke CSL POPS system with coded gold latch pin. All co-ordinated with that lustrous carbon fibre and gold threaded weave in the all-new SL Shaft 4 Barrel Tip.

 The SL has always offered something a bit special. A bit “extra”, if you like. And this year is no exception.

 The gold accenting lifts the general appearance of the CSL into another league. All of the stainless steel parts that could be colour-coded have been, also the grip badge and body badge carry a gold chrome finish in place of the silver chrome found on the standard Ego11.

 But of course it is the new SL Shaft4 Barrel that takes the limelight. The gloss finished Carbon Fibre 14.5” and 16” tips contains a delicate gold weave, a polished gold collar, and ample porting. The backs have been stepped down a size in their range (now 0.681”, 0.685” and 0.689” bores) in order to better suit the current paint sizes around the globe. The threading and rear section use the same geometry as the Shaft4 Barrel with its increased control bore length, offering higher average velocity and improved consistency over the older Shaft SL barrels. Of course the internal bore is precision honed, as you would expect.

 In order to make the most of the stunning detailing all of the CSL the colours for this year have been designed to complement the gold theme, picking up the colour in their accented parts, but each with their own unique combination of base and contrasting elements.

 Mechanically the CSL is driven using the same solenoid with integrated Flow Control Devices as can be found on the Ego11. The Ego11 has altered perceptions on what is possible both in terms of adjustability and outright smoothness from a poppet platform. And the CSL is no different with the adjustable solenoid making it possible to dial in the marker for supreme spool valve rivalling smoothness or outright firepower at the twist of a control.

 But in other areas around the marker it’s easy to spot where those improvements that you expect to see in an SL have been made. For example the F-F or Flush Fitting Frame. Take a look and you will see that there are no longer any unsightly screw heads at the rear of the frame or inside the trigger guard. Instead, the frame is attached using a single captured free-spinning screw at the rear, and on a discrete and hidden cam-hinge at the front. The result is quicker and easier disassembly, smoother lines and improved ergonomics.

 The CSL will be shipping with the excellent Cure3+ bolt. But currently in the final stages of development we have an all-new Cure4 Bolt System. Developed with the intention to reduced stack clipping and bolt strike (where the paintball is damaged by the bolt accelerating forward and striking the stationary paintball) the new bolt includes a removable and replaceable cushioned tip. The tip is locked into position by the contoured bolt insert that is in turn held in place by the bolt pin. Complete disassembly requires no tools whatsoever. The Cure4 bolt will be made available free of charge to all CSL owners who register their marker (see inside CSL box for details).

 Continuing the long tradition of the SL range, the CSL offers a multitude of options to the owner. Electronically there is the same option of Opto or Micro trigger actuation on the board, as well as magnetic and/or spring return on the trigger. The CSL also offers the option of both a High and Low Pressure exhaust valve system which allows you tailor the efficiency and feel even further. The HP valve guide gives increased efficiency while the LP guide delivers a more gentle blast of air to the back of the ball. There is also the inclusion of the standard Ego-shaped “S” style, as well as a brand new retro “Blade”-shaped, trigger. The options included as standard with every CSL mean that there should be a set-up to suit every taste without ever the need to purchase potentially flawed aftermarket parts.

 And of course these days the options do not just stop at the hardware. Every CSL comes complete with a full E-Portal system, including software and link cables meaning that everything from the start-up splash screen to the software version can be adjusted and uploaded from a PC.

 As you can see, there is little that has been left untouched on the New CSL. And after all, The devil is in the detail, as they say…

PBNation.com Takes Things On The Road For 2009

There are not many things paintball related outside of the actual events that amaze me but PBNation.com has done a great job with their recent project, the PBNation.com Skybus.

 

The Skydeck

The PbNation Skydeck is a unique vehicle as only about 100 of these units were every made and this one will be refurbished and customized specifically for use by PbNation staff, members and sponsors.

The Skydeck is a two story motor coach with a patio deck for 15 on the top floor.

On the inside in the front is a stairwell to the top deck (only interior stairwell on a motor coach).

In the midsection will be another sofa and Pullman bunk with a dropdown TV. (This is a custom add so no pictures)

In the rear is a bedroom that will be replaced with a lounge with two sofas, big screen TV and audio system and other goodies.

View down hallway…

Final product including a paint job which will turn heads along many interstates this summer.

San Diego Dynasty Win NPPL Commander’s Cup 2008

San Diego Dynasty go from a fourth place ranking in the preliminaries to take home first place and the 2008 series title for the professional division for the NPPL season. Dynasty edged out Edmonton Impact in the semi-finals to face off against the OC Bushwackers in the finals.

In the semi-professional division Arsenal Evolution met up with Edmonton Impact’s semi-pro team and even with Josh Davey’s on the field Arsenal Evolution moved onto the finals to face off against Dssp8ntball.com. Some one for one calls caused Dssp8ntball.com to give the edge needed for Arsenal Evolution to take home the first place in Semi-pro. Phoenix United took home third place and Edmonton Impact was left in fourth.

Hollywood HK take the Division 1 title in a sweep in the finals against the L.A. Hitmen leaving Synergy in a third place and Rockstar Factory with the fourth position.

Division 2 finals ended up with Go 4 Broke vs Miami Rage with Go 4 Broke taking home the first place title.

Total Greif took the Pump division with an average of 96.00
