Another quite surprising gun upgrade. I really believed that the Ego 07 was a perfect gun, yet Planet Eclipse managed to upgrade it. And believe it or not there’s a significant difference between the Ego 07 and the new Ego 2008 Origin. This one’s even lighter (I guess it really is possible), has absolutely no kick, is even more air efficient, more accurate and with even sleeker design. They even managed to raise the speed level. We just have to admit this time Planet Eclipse definitely outdid themselves. Check out the gun’s features: • Ultra-Lightweight Monoform Body • Deftek Offset Feed Tube • Flush-Fitting Eye Covers • Integrated Rammer Housing • Integrated FRM • Cure Bolt • Zick Rammer and Rammer Cap • Stepped Valve Chamber and Valve Guide • High-Flow Valve • Q-Block – New 1-Piece Dual QEV block • Light-weight Aluminium Regulator Pistons • Superior Coil Spring Regulator Design • Dual Trigger Sensing Board • Duel Instrument Grade Ball-Raced Trigger • Magnetic Trigger Return • Skinny-Fit Co-Moulded Rubber E-Star Grips • T-Slot Rail Mounting System • Major Tournament Preset Modes • Capped and Uncapped Semi and Ramping Modes • 9 Debounce Modes • Direct-Acting Solenoid • Black-on-White Transflective LCD Display • Swivel In-Line Regulator • Lever Operated Clamping Feed • Shaft II 2-Piece 14” 0.693” Barrel • On/Off/Purge System • Lower Cyclic Mass • Less Kick • Quieter Shot • Improved Efficiency • Low Profile Break-Beam Eyes • New Clam-Shell packaging • Tool Tube Hex Key Set • Weighs 1.99lbs with barrel and Battery Just like the Dye DM8 the Ego 08 is holding a high price – $1250. It’s only natural for a high end marker, but still not too many people can afford it. I guess that’s good news for some as there aren’t gonna be too many people with the same gun out on the field. I really can’t add any flaws for this gun, because it’s getting even higher ratings than the Dye DM8. It’s near perfection, but I don’t want to play with that word too much, because I’m pretty sure the next Planet Eclipse gun version will be even better. The Ego 08 comes in variety of colors such as blue, olive with brown highlights, white, grey with green highlights, black with green highlights, black with white highlights. There are also a couple of limited editions – UK Flag and American Flag, but to get them you have to spend an additional $150 (total of $1400). No matter which color you decide to get you’ll be a lucky and happy person to have this gun. It won’t disappoint you.
