Planet Eclipse @ the Millenniums

EGO Ink !

We have seen lots of different Planet Eclipse cool stuff and this isn't the first Tattoo with have seen. It's possibly the strangest and it comes with a cool little story as well.

The guy with the Ink is Justin Geidiman. He's 31 years old and a dorito runner for the East Valley Stars....plays at the d3 level from Queen Creek, AZ

Justins Team Mate 'Blake Hunter' told us this story:

It took me 3 years to convince Justin to switch to Planet Eclipse....ask him urself.. Justin was a diehard Bob Long Fan...finally after enough problems with a "cursed" Marq...I got him to buy an Ego8....he was hooked and never thought about shootin another brand...he loved how much the Ego had changed his game...he decided he wanted a token of gettin this tattoo....unfortunately he no longer owns this Ego...he has upgraded to a Vicious Geo

Well i just wanted to let you guys know the story behind the tat....myself and him are some DIE HARD PE owner's....

FallDown Winner !!!

Well, what can I say. My score was holding strong for a while, then it seemed like every paintball field or tournament i visted there was always someone pulling out there iPhone and showing me a score that beat my highest. Not by a great deal but enough.. Since they did a little update my scores have been rubbish. I think Kayla Brem knocked the wind out of my Sails a little with her score of 348 (kicking her husbands ass in the process I beleive :-), but the deadline for scores was today and what do we find in our in-box, this massive score of 394 from Taylor Harsanye... So thats it Taylor Harsanye is the Planet Eclipse King of FallDown... Well Done... Total respect (i'm a little upset and I think that App is about to be deleted).

Keep your eye's on the Blog as i will be posting up the next challenge very soon.... :-)

Dr Geeks In LOVE !

Dr Geek considers himself ‘down with the kids’. The other Day Dr Geek decides to be all romantic and buy his girlfriend a packet of Love Hearts Sweet (Candy)… Now in the past you would find little messages on each piece of candy that said ‘Kiss Me’ ‘I’m yours’ ‘Be Mine’ or ‘Love You’ etc…. But when Dr Geek gave his girlfriend the candy he was amazed at what he saw… Since when has ‘E-Mail’ or ‘Hard Luck’ been romantic??? And what is Ali G doing with one saying’ Me Julie Best Mum’ WRONG !!

Other messages in the packet:

‘Hi Baby’ ….. Not Bad.
‘Dream On’
‘Hot Lips’
‘Bless You’…. Something your Gran might say.
‘Hi Love’
‘Keep Cool’

RARE Hybrid EGO9/10 4 Sale on Ebay

I thought you might like a little heads up grabbing something quite rare and a little special....

On Saturday the 27th March @ 10:00pm GMT (3:00pm PDT) the first of 3 Hybrid EGO9/10 EGO's will go up on Ebay.. IT WILL NOT BE LIVE UNTIL THEN.... Once that one sells we will put up the second one on ebay. Starting price is $0.99.. So someone could get a BARGAIN !!!

Click Here

During the development of every new model there comes a stage when we are 90% happy with the design and modifications and want to start field testing. For obvious reasons it is virtually impossible to field test with anything that looks like a finished product, because paintball players are a canny bunch and would notice that what we were playing with was different from what we were currently selling.

So in order to test new parts or theories or designs we often create test mules, or hybrids. Hybrids are often older gun bodies modified to take newer parts.

And that is exactly what we have here.

These Ego9/10 Hybrids were the final stage of the development process of the Ego10 prior to going into production. Basically, every part of the gun is an Ego10, barring the external appearance of the body. They have the same external profile cuts to the body as the Ego10, even takes an Ego10 badge and an Ego10 cut Cure3+ bolt. They have the pressure release porting for the LPR and the body porting for the solenoid paths and the Torpedo are all very close to the Ego10’s final specification. They even have Ego10 boards with the new firmware and the larger, replaceable display module.

Only 20 of these Ego9/10 Hybrids were ever made. They were originally shipped all over the world to Beta testers to give feedback on prior to Ego10 production commencing. As such, they are very rare beasts. Some of the Hybrids stayed with their testers because they loved them so much, and some were returned to be replaced with full-fat Ego10s. Either way you would be extremely lucky to ever see 2 of these at the same field.

For the reasons mentioned above, the ones we are selling here are USED. They are not new and are not being sold as such. They have been played with in varying conditions around the world so will show signs of light wear and tear. Of course, on returning home the Eclipse HQ here in Manchester UK they were all stripped, inspected and re-built as part of the appraisal process, and if any changes have been made to the markers it is only to bring them up to the latest specification.

All 20 were anodized the same color combination which is Black with Blue parts. This gun is even more special with SUPER RARE blue grips.

Happy Bidding!

The 2009/10 Off-Season has been one of the most dramatic for a long time with teams folding, merging, bumping up or simply adding new strength to their squads. But after a long wait the 2010 season was now kicked off.

The First PSP of 2010 has just finished in Phoenix and the Planet Eclipse teams have hit the floor running…. The PSP Pro bracket is now 10 teams strong with 50% of all Players in the PSP Pro Bracket shooting Planet Eclipse Ego’s or Geo’s……

Edmonton Impact had a traumatic event to say the least, with some of the team having to fly back to Canada for a funeral on the Saturday and then back to Phoenix to Battle for the Pro Championship on the Sunday. After making the finals (by the skin of their teeth) they first knocked out Dynasty (6-5), Then LA Infamous (7-4) in the semi finals and to round off an amazing weekend Impact beat Damage (7-4) after being down 3-1 . Owner of Edmonton Impact, Bart and the team have been so close in the past to winning their first Pro event. But this was their first official Pro Win after 5 years and faced with such adversity, I’m sure the victory tastes that much sweeter…

Ever improving Aftershock also took their place on the Podium in 3rd Place, which believe it or not is the best result that Aftershock have EVER had in the X-Ball Format PSP.. Which is very hard to believe but shows how hard it is to compete at this extremely high level.

Congratulations to all of our Pro teams (& Dallas Lethal Winning in D4) and everyone else in the Emortal Army…. It’s a long fight but we are ready!!

Living Legends Offer

If our intel is correct there may be a couple of Sandbaggers attending the event !!!

Nuclear Peppers Soon?

I knew the hot sauces I like are HOT. Especially when you touch your eyes (or other parts of the body that will not be spoken about in public) !!! But I never expected them to be 'Weapons Grade' Hot !!!

Here is a little story that made me laugh and smile all at the same time.. The Bhut Jolokia is the same pepper that we use in the 'Fire It Up - Extreme' Planet Eclipse Hot Sauce. I can't guarantee it will stop terrorists or it will spice up you food and get the bland bandits running for cover.

GEO 2 Pics

More info coming soon.

Planets NEW Web Site.

After what seems years of development (I'll probably get a slap for saying that) the NEW Planet Eclipse web site is now LIVE.

It's taking awhile to propagate so might not show up correctly on everyone’s computers, this could take up to 48 hours.

We would really like to hear your feedback on the new site, any comments, suggestions or errors you find will be greatly appreciated.

We hope you like our new home :-)

(Nice Work Paul & Kate)....

Coming Soon...... ????

Stay tuned for more information.

I hate losing !!!!

It looks like my score has been smashed.... Stoney managed to overtake me on 316 for the whole of last week (which reallllyyyy got on my nerves) but when we came into work this morning there were a few other scores that battered us both.... Here is the current leader. Still one week to go !!!!
If you want to join in here is a copy of my original post....


If you have an iPhone you probably love it and have loads of Apps. Now the games are good, some are amazing but the ones you just keep going back to over and over again because they are so addictive are brilliant and frustrating all in the same App. Well, my current favourite is FallDown! It’s a FREE App and super simple, super additive and super frustrating. Stoney and I have been having a running battle for a couple of weeks (To be honest it’s like taking Candy from a baby). I think he’s hanging around the 280 Mark.. Here is a screen shot of my highest scores…

So, I’ll give you two weeks to beat my score and the winner with the highest score will get my respect and also an Eclipse Back Pack (Ruk Sak) Free Of Charge to your door. I want to receive screen shots as proof and the winner with an e-mail sent into our inbox when we start work on the 29th March will be the winner.

So what you waiting for?

All aboard the train heading for Frustration Central !!!

Don't bother with the Photoshop, we have ways of checking your score !!!

Thistle do!

This is weird… Colour blindness is something that is hard to understand unless you have it. But this weird eye/mind thing is probably something explainable I just don’t know what it is… But I’m sure one of you will know.

I even asked our resident expert Dr Geek and he was very baffled.

For whatever reason when you take a picture of the Thistle SLS Markers, the colour the camera sees is different to your eye's. We have taken several pictures and colour corrected them but even from monitor screen to monitor screen the Thistle SLS Markers look different… Aaaaarrrrggghhhh.

We have updated the images on the web site and here (below) but again from screen to screen this might be different. I guess it’s an issue we will always have with what our minds eye’s see and what a computer sees. You can clearly see the difference here from the colour corrected image (which is a lot closer to what it ACTUALLY looks like) compared to the image in the Dr Geek picture.

So, who knows why? Let's hear it !

Remember, every day is a school day.

iPhone App Software Developer Wanted !!!

Everyone that knows me will know that Computers and the whole IT thing is something that flies right over my head. I have the ideas but actually putting them into practise is something completely different. Luckily, I have a great bunch of staff around me that are brilliant at their jobs and can normally take my ramblings and turn them into something a lot better than what I wanted in the first place.

As a pretty recent iPhone owner I have been thinking about ‘Apps’ and I think I have some good ideas for making a couple. This is where I would normally go and see the Design department and they would make the magic happen. But in this case they are just too busy doing proper work and it’s also outside of their skill sets, so I thought I’d see if there is anyone out there that would like to work with me on a couple of iPhone / iTouch / iPad Apps?? Now before I get a bunch of App developers’ sending me quotes for tens of thousand dollars... forget it. I’m looking at someone that wants to work with me on developing something fun. Yes, there is money in the pot for this, but I’d rather work with a baller as we might both be able to get what we want out of it and hopefully the baller will be able to help (like my design team do) and give me input and guidance with the project as well.

If you’re that person please drop me an e-mail at: and let’s make some magic happen.

Rivalry Teaser !

In April 2010 the latest and may I say greatest Planet Eclipse ETV DVD thus far will be out: EMORTAL 2.
The DVD is packed with stuff (more details soon). There are a couple of never seen before pieces on there as well. One of these pieces is Rivalry: A story about the year long battle in 2009 between Vicious and XSV in the PSP Semi-Pro Bracket. We think the Rivalry Piece is one of the very best ETV Pieces that we have ever produced. It's about 50 minutes long and you will be able to watch the whole thing on the DVD very soon.

But to give you a little taste here is the Rivalry Trailer:

Brute Force...........

Team Brute Force, a scenario and big game paintball team, based out of Eastern Massachusetts announces the signing of Planet Eclipse into the teams support family! Brute Force joins some of the best scenario and professionally ranked teams throughout the world!

The team will be representing Planet Eclipse throughout the year in a multitude of ways including but not limited to, exclusively using Planet Eclipse Markers and Performance gear, hosting tournaments and events, and showcasing Eclipse in their season long documentary titled “Two Thousand Ten” being filmed and produced by Visions Edge.
“We are all extremely grateful to be representing Planet Eclipse in 2010” says Mike Revelle the team captain and founder. “Many of us already shoot Planet Eclipse Markers and are awestruck every year by the performance of each year’s newer model. In today’s economy, paintball and paintball teams are being hit hard with all of the expenses of this sport, but with the EGO, GEO, and ETEK markers being so easy on paint, reliable, and air efficient we are able to save money and achieve the same performance and reliability Eclipse has been known for!”

“We are proud to have Team Brute Force join the Eclipse Emortal Army. We hope the best for them for this season and the future to come. We look forward to helping and supporting the team” says Marc Lancia of Planet Eclipse

Boob Camp Report.

While most of the men are tucked up in bed because the snow is too cold for them the Girls for Fat Lady's Charms are up and about training hard and showing off there skills to ladies ballers at there boobcamps.
We ask Sofia about the first one of 2010.

Sofia: The boobcamp went great, all girls were very pleased with the whole weekend. The girls made it even though we struggled with trains, flights and the huge amounts of snow on the roads due to the snowstorm that hit Sweden that weekend. One car hit a big pile of snow and had to be "shoveled" out.

Sebban from Joy had a tuff schedule for the girls and all of us went home tired but with a lot of new drills and excersises to practise on.

Blog: So what about the boys, when do they get to join in?

Sofia:Well, this summer we are planning a new Boobcamp, but outdoors of course. We think we will invite guys as well this time because it seems as if there are several that are interesed in coming (blog: I wonder why !!!) As soon as we have more info we will get it posted up and let you know, Also keep your eye’s on:
