It’s a question that I get often “What’s the between the CS2 and the 170R”. Both of the Planet Eclipse markers are fantastic, but differ in price wildly, so what is the difference and is the CS2 with the extra $500?

Let’s take a look at which marker is best in these 11 different categories:  Accuracy, Shot Quality, Kick, Efficiency, Upgradability, Build Quality, User Frindelss, Egonicmis, Features, and Price. Whoever has the most points at the end is the winner. 

Some of the categories above are very subjective, and up to personal preference. In those cases, I tried to explain why I best picked another gun over another. Trying to explain why the CS2 or 170R shoots “better” is hard and very subjective, so bear with me on this wild tropical adventure that is paintball guns comparisons.
