  • 3 vs 3 MagFed Event featuring Emortal Zombie Girl

    As we emerge deeper out of lockdown around the World we love to hear about people starting to play again here at Planet Eclipse HQ. When one of our Emortals drops us a message (and pics) about a 3 vs 3 Magfed event then we get very excited.

    Jungle Island in Lake Elsinore ran, what I believe was, the first United Mag Fed league event. Featuring 5-man teams, 3 man teams and individuals.

     

    Zombie Girl played on a 3-Man team called SoCal Mercenaries (SCM) and took 2nd Place with Zombie Girl also taking the event MVP award :-)

    Zombie Girl said “I absolutely loved attending this event, way more competitive then attending our normal MFOG's. Definitely something for any Magfed player to attend in the future. Whether you’re doing 1v1, 3v3 or 5v5 this is definitely an event not to miss. I can't wait for the next one.

    We noticed that Zombie Girl had her kill cams on so we hope to see a highlight video soon…

  • Eclipse Mag Fed: Incoming!
    MagFed. We love it. We’re incredibly proud of our growing range of MagFed products and genuinely humbled by how well we’ve been accepted into the MagFed community. So much so that we've created a MagFed Division within Planet Eclipse. Simply named EMF. Eclipse Mag Fed. 


    EMF100


    We're heavily back-ordered at the moment but for our latest imminent shipment, and all shipments going forward, the EMF logo will feature across our range of MagFed product packaging as a stamp of quality, so the customer knows that each product has been custom designed, built and tested to work for them. As it should. Game after game. Without fail.

    We’ve also taken this opportunity to tweak the name of our awesome MagFed EMEK, the EMG100. This will now be named the EMF100 (Emek Mag Fed 100) which is a small change but one that helps us manage and promote our MagFed presence. 

    New to Planet Eclipse Mag Fed products? Here’s our current list that will help fuel your MagFed habit:

    EMF100 (EMEK MagFed)
    Follower and Spring upgrade kits (DYE DAM compatible)
    PWR Stock (adjustable stock)
    Quake Barrel System (rifled FSR barrel system)
    Blackout Screw Kits
    CF20 Mag (Continuous Feed 20 round magazine) - coming soon


    Again, we’d like to thank the MagFed community for welcoming us into their arms and trying our products. We'll continue to work hard and bring more great innovative MagFed products that look great and perform even better. Without breaking.

    We'd also like to thank all of our customers across the globe for their patience and loyalty during these challenging times.

  • Grease is the word
    Since we first created our own Paintball marker back in 2004, the Planet Eclipse EGO, we've constantly tested and evaluated different lubricants. To date we have yet to find a range of lubricants that out-perform Planet Eclipse Oil and Grease in any meaningful metric. 



    We constantly evaluate other brands of lubricant with intensive in-house trials for both performance and longevity, across a broad range of temperatures and operating conditions and we believe that the Planet Eclipse Oil and Grease that we supply, as standard, with every marker we produce is the very best product for the job. It offers exceptional performance in the widest possible range of conditions, whilst offering longevity and reliability to all the components that go to make up our markers. All of our lubricants are also approved for use by our OEM suppliers. This is not the case for other lubricants on the market.

    Eclipse Oil


    It is often the case that while some lubricants may claim to be superior to the ones we recommend and supply with our markers, they can often have an adverse effect on the longevity of some key, and often expensive components within our markers. This can often lead to problems and create expensive issues. For example, some petroleum based lubes work well in some applications, but if and when they find their way into the solenoid or onto the circuit board they can potentially cause issues that lead to parts becoming irreparably damaged and may need replacing. Circuit boards and solenoids are not cheap. And for obvious reasons, damage caused by incorrect lubricants that are not supported by us or our OEM suppliers would void any and all warranty on those items. 

    For best all round performance ONLY use Planet Eclipse Grease and Oil on Planet Eclipse markers. Using anything else could cause you issues that will not be covered under your warranty. If you run out of oil or grease then we sell replacements and all good Paintball stores should be able to supply you with our recommended lubricants.

    Stay safe. Keep your marker safe. And only use Planet Eclipse lubricants.


  • ⚠️ May - Covid-19 Update ⚠️
    Planet Eclipse May Covid-19 Shipping Update.

    Over the last few days the number of messages we have received asking about production schedules and the delivery of certain products has increased. Below is our current situation, so people Worldwide will know where we are up to, and what is happening.



    Planet Eclipse Offices.
    Our US Office has remained open with a slightly reduced staff, so orders of current stock are still being processed. Our UK Office, where the production of high end product is performed (such as the CS2, GEO4 and LV1.6) has started to bring in a few production staff, but it is still very much under staffed. Our German Office is now back up and running and their walk-in store is open again. The German on-line store is up and running but the USA and UK on-line stores will remain closed, so we can focus on supplying our valuable global dealer network.

    Production.
    If only it was as easy as turning up to work and start building; we could get markers out of the door. But it's not that easy. Several members of our production staff have small children and with child care facilities and schools still being closed they have no choice but to stay at home. This is the exact same problem that some of our suppliers have, with the anodisers being the perfect example. Even if we had the staff on site to check and process the metalwork, the reduced output from our anodisers means we are very limited to what we can do. Currently the anodisers are hitting 15% - 20% of capacity which is causing us untold delays. They hope to get more staff back into work at the start of June but that is currently just a hope. We will continue to work closely with all of our suppliers, couriers and staff to try and speed things up but at the moment production is very slow. Rest assured we are doing everything we can to make as many things as possible happen.

    Marker update.
    GEO4 is in production, but progress is very slow. However, a very, very small amount of units are starting to come out of production and are being sent out...

  • Lords of the O-Rings 🙄
    Ok terrible pun, we couldn't resist, but in these crazy times many of you are dusting off the hex keys, actually opening the spares baggy and in some (rare) cases, reading the manuals we create. Unbelievable right?

    Well, we've another tech support treat for you; we're currently developing our own Planet Eclipse O-Ring Finder App. It isn't finished yet but we've decided to release it to a limited number of 'first come, first served' Beta testers. Which can be any of you!




    Getting the App isn't super-simple at the moment, due to its Beta Test status, but if you want to get involved while you have the time and inclination then follow the instructions below.

    Please note: The O-Ring App is only available for Apple devices running iOS13 at the moment.

    Getting Started:
    1 - Make sure your device is running iOS13
    2 - Install TestFlight (Beta Test app) from the App Store to allow you to Beta Test: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/testflight/id899247664
    3 - Open this link on your device https://testflight.apple.com/join/3FzKlQde
    4 - Tap 'View in TestFlight' or 'Start Testing'
    5 - Tap 'Install'

    Using the app:

    (A) Select any of our current range of markers.

    (B) Select any of the assemblies that make up that marker.

    (C) Browse the o-rings linked to the assembly.

    (D) The o-ring you select is displayed at actual size with a link to buy.

    (E) All the links you need to place an order are displayed.

    (F) Simply make your purchase from the selected Eclipse Spares Distributor.




    We hope this benefits some of you and please submit any feedback through the TestFlight App.

    We'll keep you updated on the App's progress and will follow-up when it is complete and ready to download as a standalone app.

    Thanks again for your support and input.

    Stay safe. Stay strong. PaintballStrong
