Planet Eclipse 2008 Origin Ego Paintball Gun


The origin Ego 2008 is basically just the same like the Ego 08, but with some extras added. Even if you check the features you’ll find absolutely no differences between the guns. What’s different here is that Planet Eclipse added – 3 piece barrel kit and 2 additional barrel tips. It’s nice to have those things handy…they can significantly improve your paintball game, even if it’s only by giving you a choice of greater paintballs options. I know the features are the same, but check them out anyway:
•    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
•    3 Piece Barrel Back Kit: .685, .689, .693
•    2 Barrel Tips: 14″ and 16″
Even though I said that the gun has not changed, when you add those 14in or 16in barrel tips it just looks sleeker than ever…simply beautiful. The Ego Origin 2008 also comes in variety of colors (again much better looking if you ask me) – purple haze (my personal favorite), mist green, sand, ice blue, sun yellow and lava orange. Any of those colors id just magnifying and your gun won’t stay unnoticed on the field. You have to be willing to pay the price though – the Ego Origin 2008 is exactly $99.95 pricier than the Ego 08, costing $1349.95. I don’t think that’s such a huge problem if you’ve already decided to spend so much money on the Ego 08. It’s up to you though. I personally favour the Origin more.
