SL91


As I’m sure some of you will already know we have posted on for Auction a couple of SL91’s on EBay. I have been sitting on another item that might be of interest to someone out there that again we are going to post up on EBay. The item in question is the First Production EGO10… It has the serial number 60001 (the 6th Year of the Ego serial number 1). It is, at the moment, in a raw state and the lucky winner can have it marker Anodised in whatever colour they would like (within reason and as long as we can actually do it). We are going to start the bidding at $1. Before anyone asks there isn’t anything special about this EGO10 except that it’s serial number 1. I will enhance the package by putting a Shaft 3 Barrel upgrade kit in with the Marker so you get everything that you would normally get plus a .685 and a .689 Back.

For a detailed specification, please visit this link:

To place your bid please visit www.ebay.com item number 260525611912. Buzz words: Ego10 Serial Number 1


Good Luck!!


Weird & Wonderful


Here is something that, well, if I’m honest makes me want to puke. But you would not believe how many of the production staff think this is a little beauty. At the end of each year’s production run we end up with a bunch of odd mismatched parts. This year is no different. We have a bunch (about 15 I believe) of EGO9 markers that have some weird and wonderful colour combinations that we have or will be putting up on line on the Planet Web site for the bargain price of $799 (first come first served on these). But this ‘Frankenstein’ EGO9 we are going to put up on EBay so people can bid on it. Again we will start the bidding at $1, as because it’s Christmas any monies over $500 we will split 50% / 50% with the Charity www.cancerresearchuk.org/ (so for example if the final bid is $600 we will donate $50 to Cancer Research UK, if it’s $1000 then we will donate $250).

The maraker is just a regular Ego9 marker but with a very different colour scheme. Here's the spec:

Eclipse Ego9-Specifiec Features

• Poppet Valve Design

• Off-Set Lower Bores – Reduces off-axis forces

• Low Pressure operation – 160psi @ 290fps

• Air Efficient – 1700+ shots from 68/45

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!!


Well, this is my last Blog Post of the year. I’m off Snowboarding tomorrow for Christmas so I’m not going to be able to post anything else... Sorry... (Eilidh might though).

I would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.

Paintball is a great sport and I’m very fortunate to be involved in it. It's an industry that I feel proud to be a part of from the Planet Eclipse point of view.

2009 has not been a great year for anyone involved in Paintball but we have a strong core and where there is heart there is also stubborn determination. Let’s all hope that 2010 is set to bring back the good times for everyone. See you all in 2010 !!!!!

Here is a little festive Mini ETV for you :-)

ETEK3 Mini Site

ETEK3 Mini site is now up and running… Just in time for a Pre Christmas Drool…


http://www.planeteclipse.com/etek3/

The ETEK has to be one the fastest selling Eclipse Markers we have ever made; critics are giving this Marker some pretty high praise. Everyone here at Planet HQ is very happy with the finished product. If you want to get your hand on one then you might have to look high and low as demand has outstripped supply at the moment even with production ramping up build. So if you want one I’d get your name down on a waiting list at your local store…. If you can find one in stock somewhere I would bag it while you can!!!

Enjoy.

Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas if it weren’t for drunken fumbles under the mistletoe (Ledz, leave Stoney alone!), gallons of ale and more food than you could shake a Yule log at, which is why Ledz and Jules kindly decided to take us all out for a night on the tiles to celebrate the Season.




And, wow....what a night it was!




We kicked off the night with a couple of cocktails, then made our way to a fab little rodizio style restaurant, where we ate and ate (....and ate..... and ate !) Phew. Not one for the veggies, we feasted on every type of steak, sausage, chop and chicken and even chickens hearts. Yum. :-S
After that we waddled over to the local comedy club where we saw a great line-up, including our favourite female comedienne, Sarah Milican and the brilliant up and coming Russell Kane. Then we hit the bars and danced the night away with the help a few sambucas courtesy of the management 




The hardcore party animals among us then went on to the nearby Casino where we finished the night off by frittering away our life savings on the roulette table.




So a BIG thank you goes out to Jules and Ledz for such an amazing night.

3.......2.......1...... BUNGEE !!!!!

So what did you do this Friday afternoon???


Well, some of the staff at Planet Eclipse HQ in Manchester took a little trip down to Salford Quay just around the corning and went Bungee Jumping..In the freezing cold, December weather!!!


Pretty much everyone were Bungee Jump virgins, so there were a few worried faces, which is always calmed down with comments like ‘Don’t worry not many people die doing this’ or ‘that rope looks quite old’, you can always rely on your friends to fill you with confidence :-)
Little video will hopefully up soon :-)



.
Tomorrow is Planet’s Christmas Party in Manchester. So, I’m sure I will be able to post a few drunken pictures on Monday…

Have a great weekend.

Thailand is BACK ???

10+ years ago there used to be a little tournament that happened every year in Thailand. Now for an event in the Far East it certainly had its fare share of European and American Pro players in attendance. Having never attended myself I’m not really sure why. Could it be the great weather? The friendly hospitality? The extremely inexpensive cost of living? Cheap booze and food? A great Paintball tournament? Or could it be something else ;-) Well, all I know that every year the ‘Guys’ got themselves ready for a great event in Thailand. The event ran its course and faded away along with the rumours and stories…. But hold on, it looks like it could be coming back.

The event is open to all Div 1 teams (No CPL, SPL, Pro or Semi Pro Teams).





The organisers are super keen for teams to make the trip over and have been working on keeping the costs of the event to a minimum for international teams and have some amazing deals on hotels, transport etc. If this is something you fancy playing then drop the event organisers a quick e-mail and see what you can arrange… If the Pre Tourney hype is even half lived up to the event will be ‘Off The Hook’.

ICE ICE BABY




We recently received an email from Kelli Landry, the wife of Bill, owner of Paintball Supply Shack in Rhode Island, requesting our support for their son Kyle’s Ice Hockey team, 'NRI Vikings Squirt B'. For anybody who doesn’t know Bill, he is one of our most loyal, fully qualified technical aides, so the least we can do for him is try to drum up some extra support for Kyle. :)




Kyle's team, who recently took first place at the Woonsocket Halloween Classic are competing for a place in the Winter Classic on New Years Day at Fenway Park. They desperately need votes to earn a place in the event so click the following link to show your support!!!

Diamond Wars III (2010 Dates)

The results are in from this seasons Diamond Wars and there are a few pretty unhappy campers… The HMC in fact won more events in total that the USDE but the absolute a$$ kicking the HMC took during the Festival weekend in July proved to be the cushion the USDE needed and even with the effort of the HMC in the final leg the gap still proved too big to close….

If you’re a rec baller, scenario player or tournament player I can’t recommend the Diamond Wars enough… If you want to play some of the best paintball you will ever get to play in arena’s second to none then you should check out the Diamond Wars (DW) next year.

Here is next year’s flyer with all the dates….

Major General Ledz will be there in 2010 with his Mercs….. Which side will they join forces with?? Only time will tell.

Christmas is COMING !!!!!


I think the Christmas feeling is very much upon us, the weather is certainly getting colder in the UK. I even saw Jack sporting a string vest earlier this week! I have just bought my Christmas tree (decorating it tonight) and the snow is falling on the Alps (bring on the fresh stuff). But just to make sure we really know that Christmas is just around the corner Mathias from Three4One from Switzerland sent us this, which did make us laugh…. I’m loving my ‘Worm’ move !!!

Fire It Up EXTREME

As it now seems to be getting cold we need something to warm you up.. So I’m proud to introduce the Eclipse Fire It Up EXTREME Hot Sauce. I have been sticking the labels on personally and now they are ready to ship…


The standard Fire It Up Hot Sauce is nice; I mean you can put it on pretty much anything. It has a great taste, but I have been called a girl in terms of Heat.... A Girl........... So we are now introducing Fire It Up Extreme. We are giving this one 9 out of 10 on the heat scale. (We keep 10 out of 10 for things like Pure Cap). We didn't want to make a sauce that was 'Just' Hot we wanted to make a sauce that also had a great flavour as well. Fire It Up Extreme has just that. Kick Ass Taste and Kick Your Ass Heat.

We have ONLY made 200 bottles of this one so it's a pretty limited production. We can make more but it's going to be in VERY short demand...

If you fancy taking a walk on the hotter side of Hot Sauces then give this bad boy a try.

Get it while it's HOT !!!

http://www.planeteclipse.com/site/estore.asp?show=catsub&sc2=162

This sauce is very,very,very hot and fruity chilli sauce made with dried Bhut Jolokia (World record holder). This sauce is for those that find most chilli sauces too mild. There is no chilli extract in this product - it is just Bhut Jolokia chillies, red peppers, cider vinegar, lemon juice and a little salt.
Heat Rating: 9/10 (300,000-500,000 Scoville Heat Units)

Ingredients: Dried Bhut Jolokia chillies (imported - 50% once rehydrated), red peppers, cider vinegar, fresh lemon juice, salt.

The Chilli Sauce causes problems with Customs and puts a major delay on the delivery so am afraid we cannot ship the chilli sauce to the USA. But a little birdie tells me that there might be a Fire It Up USA Hot Sauce just around the corner.
