The Emek is Planet Eclipse’s entry-level paintball marker. It utilizes the popular Gamma Core system. The Emek is based on the well-proven Etha 2/Etha 3 platform. The main difference between the two is that the Etha 2/3 is electronic, offering various firing modes, while the Emek is mechanical, without electronic components.

The Emek’s robustness and reliability make it an excellent choice, designed to replace traditional, markers like the Tippmann 98. To ensure its reliability, Planet Eclipse distributed Emeks to paintball fields worldwide for testing, receiving very positive feedback.

Compared to markers like the Tippmann or Spyder’s, the Emek is much quieter, has less kick, and can handle fragile paintballs. This is a major advantage for rental players, as using more delicate paintballs is less painful when hit and results in more eliminations.

The Emek features the Gamma Core and a single-trigger mechanical frame. This design allows for rapid shooting. While it may not have the premium feel of some higher-end markers, it’s much more affordable at just $289.

When choosing a paintball marker, especially for first-time buyers, it’s important to consider your budget and what you want in terms of performance. The Emek competes very well within the $200 to $600 price range, offering reliability and solid performance for new players. This makes it a suitable choice for beginners who may not be familiar with all the intricacies of paintball equipment.

In conclusion, the Emek is an extremely reliable, budget-friendly option for any paintball player. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned player, it’s a marker worth considering.
