Planet Eclipse brings some tough choices for it's 2009 Line of Paintball Guns. From the old reliable tournament gun, the Eclipse Ego 09 to the affordable high performance of the Etek 2 or their brand new Spool Valve gun the Eclipse GEO. Long dominated by Dye  and Proto, Eclipse enters the market with a Spool valve gun with the performance of it's flagship Ego. Eclipse Appears to have mastered the weakness of the spool valve gun. Stock Geo's  have been reported to be getting 1400+ shots off of a 68/4500  tank. To spool valve or not to spool valve is the question. Planet Eclipse has always made very high quality paintball parts and now guns. Their new GEO  paintball gun, has vast improvements over now "old style" spool valve designs. Eclipse has simplified the spool valve design, eliminating what used to be very necessary, unreliable internal orings thus making the spool valve design much more reliable. This leaves you with a dilemma, though. Go with the new GEO  paintball gun or get the proven reliability of the EGO 09 and its new features.

Both the EGO 09 and the GEO paintball guns are very well constructed, both offer speed and reliability, and both will shot paint very quickly and accurately So do you go with the GEO with its spool valve design which is a little less air efficient, . shoots a little bit slower, but shoots a longer, slightly more accurate shot. Or should you go with the EGO and its air ram design, which is proven to be very reliable, and very, very fast, very air efficient, but doesn't shoot quite as far as a spool valve gun. Tough choices, I know. There is another alternative though.

For those of you who don't want to have to think about which gun to get, you can always get the ETEK2 paintball gun. Eclipse released the original Etek back in 2006. It's the more affordable version of the EGO paintball gun, but don't let that fool you. It has virtually the same speed as the EGO and is a force to be reckoned with. Its perfect for the budged minded player who demands a sub $600 Paintball Gun but doesn't want to skimp of performance. The etek line of guns can use most 2006 Eclipse Ego upgrade parts.
