Ebay Auction on RARE Ego9/10 Hybrid

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

This is the 3rd and Final Hybrid EGO9/10 EGO's we will be selling…..

Starting price is $0.99 on Ebay.. So someone could get a BARGAIN !!!

http://cgi.ebay.com/PLANET-ECLIPSE-EGO9-10-HYBRID-PAINTBALL-MARKER-1-20-/260610212759?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cad944397#ht_516wt_1137


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!

Germany Millennium round # 2


Last weekend the Millennium series round # 2 took place in Bitburg, Germany. They also managed to squeeze in some more of the games missing from the Malaga Ash round # 1 event.

This was also the first time that most of our Pro teams (CPL) a few SPL and Div 1 teams got their hands on the GEO2 markers. Some teams had the chance to train with them a few days before but for some it was a case of pick them up at the event, open the box and hope for the best… And that’s what they had delivered ‘The Best’ The results from the weekend were amazing for the Eclipse teams. As the CPL managed to finish the Malaga, Spain and Bitburg, German events it was a double header !!

First up they finished the German events and 3 out of the top 4 teams were Eclipse teams all rocking NEW GEO2’s. In 4th came Chilli Peppers, 2nd were SK Moscow and in 1st Place were Dynasty Impact… So that was a fantastic end of the event…. But there was more to come as they managed to get the rest of Malaga CPL games finished…

Again 3 out of 4 teams were Eclipse teams. In 4th place it was Chilli Peppers again, with Icon finishing in 2nd place behind back to back, never done before two tournaments in one day winners Dynasty Impact !!!

CONGRATZ !!!!

Fantastic results from all of our teams out in Germany (Well done to Dog’s Damour winning Div 1 as well). The event was real good, weather was perfect and the guns rocked…. In all of the different launches we have done this one has blown me away the most. I have never been complimented on the guns performance and asked for guns off so many people before… Watch out the GEO2 is here… Get behind one!!

See you all in the UK for round # 3 (Campaign Cup).

Stolen GEO

More dirty scum bags were out and about at the Millennium series in Germany last weekend!!

Team Icon had an ICON GEO stolen at the event. Serial Number 50030-02621 there are not many of these in existence and this one also does not have the original eye covers on it. It has Silver ones (see picture below).


Please report this gun if you are offered it and please don’t buy it. Whoever stole it is a scum back and deserves to burn in the fires of hell.. I’m fed up with people thinking they can just take stuff that other people work hard for…. If you’re the one that stole this gun, go and find a mirror and have a bloody good look at yourself. Do the right thing and contact Planet Eclipse on info@planeteclipse.com or Icons captain (Cyril) on cyril.job@free.fr


Lets stop this happening !!!

Planet Eclipse would like to congratulate all teams that attended the event and especially all the Eclipse sponsored teams. We also would like to thank Mega Play Paintball for putting on another great event and Mike and PJ from ESP for teching Eclipse markers for the teams at the event. We look forward for the rest year and good luck to all teams attending the next event.

Below is an on-line translation of the event !!

In the last end of week, days 15 and 16 of May, the Mega Play Morumbi received 2ª stage from the Brazilian Circuit of Paintball. Of this time, a Field Layout more opened with few bunkers, provided to gorgeous plays and many bunkeadas. To they had all been 27 enrolled teams in the event and more than 140 departures. To each stage, the CBP is consolidated as an example of organization and paintball of quality. The teamses of the Amateur category had given a show and the teamses of had pro disputed point the point its classification. In this stage, the JBZ was unanimous, the teams Jungle Boyz and JBZ AM were sagraram champion of the two categories. imgi3Com the same nº of teamses of the passed stage, the organization opted to keeping the format of games. The teamses, divided in three keys had played 8 departures each. In the first phase of the match, the four better amateur teamses of the key would classify, three fans of key B and three fans of key C. In the category Pro, the classification criterion was run points and the five best ones pontuados would go for the semifinals. In Saturday 98 games had been carried through. The key opened It the match with the debutantes Braves Red and Carioca Legion. The teams Carioca Legion played with only 4 players, for problems with the fulfilling of roster, but exactly thus the teams almost classified. Valley to stand out that this was the only team with a woman in roster, Stefany Cross, that, courageous, faced the challenge and came the SP to participate of its first championship of paintball. Mines of Gerais and Braves Red had made good left and had guaranteed its classification. Ninjinhas Mega and Pinta the Drill had also passed to the second phase. Legion Carioca and Bushido Fire had stopped for there. Of the teamses Pro, the Robberies the front of the JBZ and the Mercenaries in this key was more than 30 points. imgi2A key B still initiated its games per the morning with the Fan Ninjinhas JR facing its teams older brother, Brave Ninjinhas. In this, the aspirings had surprised and led best with 4 livings creature, cravada ownership and. JBZ AM played well and guaranteed the vacant in the semifinals, together with Ninjinhas JR, Bushido Ice and the Hellcife Team, “stopped” teams that always it comes northeast to play the CBP. The Cariocas of the Ink Red had won its two first disputes, but a succession of defeats had after not obtained punctuation enough to classify. Speed Freaks Beta and Niterói Storm had also not classified. The Advantages Suminami and Brave Ninjinhas had lost few departures, but they had not reached a high punctuation very. Key C carried through 26 departures in Saturday and finished the remain in the morning of Sunday. The Braves Team surprised at good games and was the teams Pro with the greater nº of points of the first phase. Captain of the Ninjinhas Delta was penalizado in the second departure, and on account of this, the teams had that to enter in field with 4 players for the three following departures. Exactly thus, the faces had made good games and had obtained the third better general punctuation of Pro in this phase. The Sabotage, teams of Porto Ferreira (SP), also ordered very well. After many bunkeadas, they had guaranteed its place in the semifinals. The champions of the fan in the passed stage, Ninjinhas Black, and the Cariocas of the Papeletto Dark had also classified. Robberies Júnior, Dangers, AC/DC and Mines of Generalities PDQ had not obtained enough punctuation. imgi4Os amateur teamses had been divided in two keys with 5 teamses each for the games of the semifinals, in which, optimum pontuado of each key place would dispute 1º, and as better pontuado of each key rank would dispute 3ª. In, points the Pro zeroed and new dispute for run points. In this category, the teamses Mercenários and Brave Ninjinhas had not classified. In the second phase, after 4 departures of each team, had been defined the participants of the three ends best. In the Fan, miners x Cariocas if had faced for the third place in the pódio. The Papeletto Dark if strengtove, but nobody did not have pra. Mines of the Generalities ordered ink in them and won the two first ones broken. For the heading of champion of the Fan, JBZ AM faced the champions of the category in the first stage, Ninjinhas Black. Two victories after followed, the boys of JBZ AM had taken the trophy of champions of the Fan. imgi1Em Pro, Rapinas and Suminami had literally fought for the third place, relieving to the two teamses penalizações that will go to load for the next stage. After stress of some players who always lose the esportivo spirit, provokes or if they leave to lead for provocations, the peace was reestablished. The Suminami was defeated in the two departures and the Robberies finished best leading. One more time in the CBP, we had the classic, tense and disputed final between Ninjinhas Delta and JBZ. The Ninjinhas Delta won the first departure, the Jungle was successful second. Plus a departure between great the e, of this time, the JBZ finished the battle and conquered the second victory in this edition of the CBP. Gratefulness to the sponsors Dye, Eclipse and Severe, to the team of judges, the employees and collaborators, the teamses and its familiar and the presence of gun techs Mike, PJ (PLanet Eclipse) and Mikko (DYE). It confers the general classification HERE. I wait to review them in 3ª stage of the CBP in days 21 and 22 of August. Soon photos in the Gallery of Images of the CBP. Writing for Karina Simões Organization of the CBP " As I said, in the awarding of this stage, I was created the Federacy of Paintball of the State of São Paulo, entity that will have as objective: to stimulate, to develop, to divulge, to conciliate, to promote, etc… the interests of the federalists and, mainly, to represent and to give legal support to the sport.

Running Wild !!!



From small acorns, grow great oaks !!

Running Wild Paintball started off in business with kids as young as 16!!! Just shows that if you put you mind to it you can do just about anything...

Johnna tells us a little more about the field and a very unqiue opportunity they were fortunate enough to granted with help from Biz Kids…


Running Wild Paintball had the opportunity of a lifetime to be one of the very few people that have been able to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. On April 28th with the help of the Biz Kids they were giving the opportunity to do so.


Running Wild Paintball was going to wear the Eclipse Roman PK and Classic PK shirts while ringing the bell but unknown to them, they had some tough rules in order to enter the NY stock exchange. They could not use phones or cameras and had to wear suits. Otherwise would of been nice seeing them on national TV with some nice Eclipse shirts.


Running Wild Paintball Field was started by John Johnson (16 at the time), Ben Johnson and Kirk Schrier. With the help of friends, family and the great town of Nunda.

Nunda, NY has been amazing. The Baldwin family (Baldwin Accounting and Tax service) and Mr. Luehman (Luehman Land Surveying) own the land that we use for the paintball field. They have been kind enough and amazing enough to allow us to rent the land to use for what they pay in taxes. How great is that! Amazing people seeing something special in these kids and willing to help out.

Doris Marsh, was the kids high school principle (Keshequa Central School) , gently pushed John into a the YEA program at the State University of NY at Geneseo college. This helped him get his into a Young Entrepreneurs Academy, which helped him learn how to start up a company.

Then there were numerous people within the community that volunteered and pitched in to help in giving supplies, time, advice and help. To name a few people who helped… Brett Pirece and his family, the Green family, Dansvile town and country and

Since the Kids have done a great job starting a business at such a young age the Biz Kids did a video about them and the field. While wearing Eclipse Jerseys and using an Eclipse marker the Biz Kids interviewed John Johnson and his business, Running Wild Paintball.

We would like to thank Planet Eclipse for their support in both events. It was greatly appreciated.

Black Karma..What Goes Around....

Planet Eclipse would like to welcome another Scenario Team to growing ranks of the Emortal Army, Black Karma. We are excited for them to be part of the Emortal Army and look forward to sponsoring them for the 2010 season and beyond !

What goes around comes around and Black Karma has been delivering in large scale scenarios and regional tournaments for over a year now. Made in old school fashion, Black Karma is an up and coming scenario team from the Southeast, rooted in honor, sportsmanship, and plain old having fun. The team was born of very traditional roots in northern Alabama – son gets hooked, then gets father hooked, father gets friend hooked, friend gets brother-in law hooked, and so on. After playing several large scenarios in the southeast at premier fields like Ft. McClellan (MOUT) and Bearclaw, the team adopted a fledgling 3 man group from Nashville. The Nashville group had been playing regional 3-man and 5-man tournaments on top of several scenarios and had been looking to form a scenario team as woodsball is what they enjoyed the most. The two groups met over several scenario games at Bearclaw Paintball playing with and against each other. Once together, the full Black Karma team has been very successful in the scenario world with MVP, MVT, XO, Sportsmanship, and General awards. The team is growing fast and is expanding its schedule to deal out more Black Karma on the Southeast. What goes around comes around… Black Karma is proud to be sponsored by Planet Eclipse and Action Paintball Store for the 2010 season. We look forward to representing their guns and gear on and off the field.

LOD Join the Emortal Army!

At Planet Eclipse we don’t ‘JUST’ support the top Pro teams from around the world we are also proud sponsors of teams at every level.. Every great team grew from humble beginnings and we understand the struggles teams go through, we celebrate every success and feel the loses as the teams do….Everyone at Planet Eclipse would like to welcome Team LOD to the Emortal Army!! We wish the team the best of luck for the 2010 season and the future.


www.lod.com.ar

Team LOD, based out of Argentina, was born as a gamer clan in 2001 (fans of Doom from iD Software, Doom2 and Quake series), and later evolved into a Paintball team, first playing scenario games (in 2007), and later, permanently opting for speedball (in 2008), when we finally replaced our mechanical markers by electronic ones. We incorporated 2 new players in 2008 and we are currently competing in national and international speedball events, D2 level. We are a responsible and dedicated team, we are committed and determined to improve and we take sponsorship very seriously. Our ultimate goal is to win the TAP2010 (Argentina), classify in CSP (Sud-American Cup) and to play in the PSP World Cup 2010 (USA), and we believe with Planet Eclipse’s support it could be instrumental in helping us grow and improve. We are hungry to improve and grow, and we offer you our best efforts.

We would like to thank all our sponsors and especially Planet Eclipse for the chance to support their brand this year. We feel that our team can improve this year and place in all our upcoming tournaments with the reliability and performance of the Ego, Etek and Geo.

RARE Hybrid EGO9/10 4 Sale on Ebay #2

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

This is the 2nd of 3 Hybrid EGO9/10 EGO's we will be selling…..

Starting price is $0.99 on Ebay.. So someone could get a BARGAIN !!!

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!

WCPS Event #2

Is that another Emortal Army win at the WCPS????

Despite high windstorm's and rain on April 3rd for the WCPS Event #2 in Elma, Washington, teams and players had positive attitudes and we all enjoyed another great day of tournament speedball. Washington team and Planet Eclipse Sponsored Team through War Paint Int, Seattle Swagger, and Oregon team, Legendary, battled it out in a best two out of three for the championship game in the Open Division, which ultimately showed Seattle Swagger as the champs.

Boston draws 'Bloodline' in the sand.

When battle commences you have to decide where you stand, which side you’re on and who (and what) you want by your side….North East team ‘Boston Bloodline’ have drawn there line and joined the Emortal Army….. Everyone at Planet Eclipse welcomes Bloodline to our family and look forward to watching and helping them grow into a New England Power House team of the future !!!!

Anthony tells us a little about the team…

If there is anything that Boston Paintball has been to the sport of paintball for the last 2 decades, it is Committed. Paintball is not just something this company does for a living, it is in the blood of everyone who has made the company and all it encompasses what it is today, and that common vein runs through owners, employees and teams alike – making it not just a company but in fact – a family. The name Boston Bloodline comes from more than just a name tossed in a hat by a bunch of players looking for something to call themselves, it comes from what they truly represent – a long line of family, the next generation… and so the torch is passed.

The team Boston Bloodline was originally a 3 man rookie team in the NEPL called the Predators.5 in 2006. The team was started by Anthony Vitale and Mark Lawson. The team had a rough start and placed 10th for the season. The following year the Predators moved up to the 5 man rookie division where they took 8th place that season. The team went through a rebuilding process in 2008 adding new players including Jeff Macari, Mike Zirpolo, and Zach Beland and decided a new name was in order – and so Boston Bloodline was born. This new team would compete in the novice division in the NEPL. Bloodline would go on to take 1st place for the season. After that season Anthony Vitale, Jeff Macari, Mike Zirpolo and Zach Beland got picked up by Somerville Crisis for the season competing in the AXBL. Bloodline did not compete in the NEPL in the 2009 season. After the 09 season Boston Bloodline with the help of Boston Paintball decided that they would rebuild the team after the AXBL announced they would not be around in 2010. The team came back from Crisis with Anthony Vitale, Jeff Macari, Zach Beland, Chris Alt, Anthony D'ambrosio, Gabe Ricard, Chris Beamon and Brian Pierce. Eric Hart along with Mark Lawson will also see a return to Bloodline for the 2010 season. The team will compete in the NEXL and PSP. The team hopes to have a great season, practice hard, and is looking forward to being Boston Paintball's premier team – it is after all, in the blood………………

For more information about the LAPPL click here


Here is a little video from the LAPPL Peru Regional you might have missed?

I could be wrong but I’m sure this player at 1:15 is a little young, and he’s got no hopper !!!

Warning… Sweating in the song in the video.. Sorry not my fault.

Carnage in Germany.

Camp Carnage a Planet Eclipse Factory teams from France took the trip to Germany to play the XPSL.... And they didn't do too badly. By the looks of it (last picture) they might have also won over the ladies !!! This is what the Carnage guys had to say:

German Open XPSL in Mendig !

An important and exciting new mission for the French Paris Team Camp Carnage: To represent Camp company, Carnage Pro HD paintball and Planet Eclipse in Germany!

After going to to play the Millennium event in Spain “Malaga”, The Camp Carnage Team attended the XPSL rendezvous in “Mendig”, Germany, The XPSL is the new German Open which regroups all the most popular and skilled German teams coming from all the different leagues.

Saturday Games: Neon Factory, Unleashed, Powerplay & Daltons.

1st game Carnage/Neon Factory – 4/2

We had never played Neon Factory before. They are a very robust team with a strong paintball flow, they don’t give away points easily, but we won!


2nd game Carnage/Unleashed – 4/0

We only bought 6 players to Germany, in the pit next door they seemed to be over hundred Unleashed players, yet, we are not impressed.
Our team Captain « Maugino » did a really great job, he prebunked several running players on every point! We won that game easily.


3rd game Carnage/Powerplay – 4/3

Our last one game of the day! Powerplay, a Millennium D1 team, they play an aggressive game, they are fast and have a lot of technical experience
Each point is difficult to take, we start with 2-0 and then 2-2, then 3-2 and 3-3.
That evening we wanted to sleep serene it’s important for the next day morale, and even more important: To pass the cut!
We played it with all our guts and we were able to grasp the last point! We got our win.

Sunday, early in the morning we were on the field to watch games. The Powerplay / Daltons turns out to be a very tight game…our big qualification game is to be against The Daltons.


4th game Carnage/Daltons– 3/4

The Daltons, they watched all of our games carefully ...We took the first two points easily, 2-0, then they completely change their tactics and grow to 3 in the dorito quickly. They are very solid, 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, it hurts, we start to add penalties on our side, but finally we score and it is now 3-3.
The Dalton’s are going to beat us !!! . They did a great job blocking us in the snake, a bunk then followed a series of rapid movements on the dorito side, the last point goes for Dalton.

End of Prelims !



5e match Carnage/Coming At Ya


Even with that loss we finished first in our group, we passed the cut and into the semi-final match, against Coming At Ya, a Millennium CPL team ... Our hearts were beating fast, our blood pressure high, our defeat against Dalton fresh in our minds.
In the Pit we knew that defeat is now synonymic of “return in France”
Both teams play fast and hard, Camp Carnage takes the first point, 1-0, then 1-1, 2-1, 3-1, 4-1! Bam Bam Bam; 4/1



FINALS !

We make it to the final with a big smile! We have two teams to play, on the time table we see: Carnage, Coming At Ya 2 & Daltons ...


6th game Carnage/ Coming At Ya 2

While playing against Coming At Ya 2, two of their players really shine, a fast and technical insert snake side and an attacking wizard dorito side.
Christine Van Truong was just exceptional; she just shot everybody she saw all day long! We later heard that it was her first competition... Just Whoaaa!!! We won the game by changing our field position to counter both players, well done Carnage….. 4/1

7th game Carnage/Daltons

We still have to play Team Daltons again, this time the goal average is in our favor, but we are not allowed to lose, we want to win the return game against them. The Daltons team gives us trouble, but our willingness to take the first place is too important, our aggressive game was the right choice and we got a well deserved result of 4-2!

The Germans gave us a huge reception, we greatly appreciated it.
We wish to thank all the teams and especially Neon Factory for their help in the final phase.

Our special thanks go Christoph Hoffmann for his hospitality, a fantastic XPSL structure and the great German organization.


Of course non of this would have been possible without:
Camp Company for the fantastic PRO HD paintball, their help and support all year around
Planet Eclipse for EGO and GEO markers and 2010 eclipse gear
Dye for the I4 goggles and ROTOR loaders


Roster :
Gregory Maugino
Max Gorecki
Nicolas Rembert
Alexandre Pizon
Kevin Lamarque-Lalanne
Mathieu ROMERO

Well Done. Carnage... EMORTAL ARMY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Down Under...


SWAT v X-Fighters FINAL Match from Derder Productions on Vimeo.



Seek and Destroy

Seek and Destroy celebrate their 2nd year as part of the Emortal Army.

Seek and Destroy started out many years ago as a few guys shooting each other in their backyards with paintball guns. They soon discovered that there were many fields coming into being all over Southeast Virginia. In October 2005 they decided to attend their first scenario at Splatbrothers field in Hopewell, Virginia. They found a large diversity of players from the hardcore teams to the father and son recball players. There were no age, sex or racial boundaries and players were represented from all walks of life. The sport brought all players together on an equal field of play. The only variable was the guile and skill of the players. This had a great appeal to them. It was at this moment that Seek and Destroy was born.


Through the years, more players were added and even a young guns division of the team was started. The team has earned recognition as a solid force to be reckoned with, but at the same time remains fair and true to the heart of the sport. They know how good it feels to get that impossible shot and to get someone out. They also know how it feels when the person they shot cheated them out of it. They strive to never take that joy from anyone who honestly deserves it. The goal of Seek and Destroy is to play for fun, to play to win, to play with fairness and to make new friends. While they do play hard, they also are not afraid to take the hard hits, while always striving to uphold the rules of play and fairness.


Seek and Destroy has won numerous awards and commendations from events attended. They have been quoted in the NY Times and Paintball World News as well as pictured in several issues of Action Pursuit Games. They have gained recognition and sponsorship from companies such as Planet Eclipse, FirstCall Paintball, and Fox Brothers Paintball. Seek and Destroy is a family of paintballers from very diverse backgrounds united under one cause; to have fun, play fair and win through the sport of paintball.

Seek and Destroy has grown to 31 players, and they now own 41 Planet Eclipse markers, soon to be 44 when the new GEO2 is released. These markers include EGO05's through EGO10's, SL74, SL8R's, SL94's as well as the new SLS. Planet Eclipse markers have proven to be dependable and built to last, Seek and Destroy is proud to be part of the Emortal Army family.
