Item Description
The Planet Eclipse Geo3 Paintball Marker is built for winning! The Planet Eclipse Geo3 Paintball Marker has taken the basic operating principle of the Geo2.1 and completely reworked it. In order to achieve optimum efficiency in a wide range of circumstances it was determined beneficial to isolate the firing chamber from the gas supply during firing cycle so that no excess gas is lost down the barrel after the ball has exited. The Geo has always incorporated this feature by selectively controlling supply to the firing chamber via the ISCIS (Innovative Solenoid Controlled Isolation System) Valve. The Geo3 incorporates the Second Generation ISCIS Valve, a complete rework of the original principle aiming to improve efficiency and reliability. The main body of the solenoid is now all aluminum. The secondary spool-driven poppet that controls shut-off of the gas supply to the firing chamber during the firing cycle now works independently of the bolt drive side of the solenoid. The new design also no longer utilises the back-check ball or the Purge Control Valve (PCV) of the old Geos which reduces parts count and further improves reliability. The whole mechanism is more reliable and far more robust than the old solenoid. More importantly to some, by reducing losses from the solenoid during the firing cycle there has been an increase in efficiency in the Geo3. The Planet Eclipse Geo3 Paintball Marker utilizes a new Bolt Speed Control (BSC) solenoid. Planet learned a great deal through the development, testing and subsequent on-field use of the Ego11's adjustable solenoid flow controls. By accurately controlling the flow of the bolt drive exhaust gasses through the solenoid the acceleration and speed of the bolt can be adjusted. Changes in the bolt speed results in changes to feel, sound signature, paint handling, rate of fire and even efficiency. By allowing the user access to this type of adjustment "on-the-fly" with an external adjuster located in the side of the frame means that a player can alter the feel and performance profile of their marker within seconds. In some cases at extreme levels of adjustment there may be need to fine tune the markers dwell to match the required bolt speed, but in general use the BSC adjustment is as simple as dialing in the velocity on the inline regulator. The Cure ST2 Bolt of the Planet Eclipse Ge03 provides a fully cushioned, rubber bolt head that reduces impact forces on both the ball in the breech and the ball in the stack. It allows paint that would have previously been thought un-shootable to be shot with complete effectiveness. As if that wasn't enough, you will also find the original Cure ST bolt included as standard with the Geo3. The Geo3 comes with a modified Propshaft and Can Assembly. The propshaft still benefits from the unique spring-loaded Drive Core but modifications to the Propshaft tip improve gas flow through the bolt and past the tip while still keeping the propshaft perfectly concentric within the bolt. This Drive Core prevents air-loss both on the firing stroke of the bolt, leaving residual, previously wasted air trapped in the valve chamber, as well as ensuring the valve chamber is fully sealed prior to re-filling on the return stroke of the bolt. This results in better efficiency and faster recharge of the valve chamber. The new Can and Bolt have previous pressure relief vents that were required for safe degassing of the old ISCIS solenoid removed. The removal of these vents results in less gas wastage per shot. The Geo3 sees the gripframe moved up and back over the previous generation bringing the rear hand closer to the barrel axis for a more natural feel in the hand. Moving the hand higher and further back helps reduce the amount of felt recoil and produces a more stable platform whether firing single shots or in full ramp. The Geo3 trigger has also been borrowed directly from the Ego11 and is 4-way externally adjustable with both magnetic and leaf spring return mechanism and the option of both optical or micro-switch actuation built in. The frame itself has been strengthened to reduce chances of accidental damage yet still designed to be the primary crumple zone in cases of large impacts. The Eclipse Geo3 carries over the Ego11's full length grip, pushbutton and display window console. A long, soft gripping surface added all the way up the back of the frame right up to the body interface. The Geo3 also includes the Ego11 grips with twin screws per side and their slim, sticky feel. The SL3 Regulator is more accurate, more consistent, with less creep and faster recharge than any previous Eclipse Reg. On top of that it will allow the Geo3 to operate with LP, MP or HP tanks with no fluctuation in performance or velocity. Switching from HP tank to LP tank without needing to adjust the regulator, this design lets the Geo3 shoot down to the last 200psi of tank pressure with next-to-zero loss in velocity. The SL3 regulator also has reversible and replaceable reg seal. The Geo3 naturally utilizes the incredibly popular angled swivel unit found on the Ego11. The POPS ASA has quickly established itself as one of the best ASA's ever produced. Push On Purge System (P.O.P.S) It is simple to operate, quick to engage and de-gas and extremely reliable and robust. That the hose exits from the front to give a nice tight line between the ASA and reg is just a bonus. Planet Eclipse Geo3 Paintball Marker features:
