This past weekend I made the trip out to Capital Edge Paintball Park, here in Sacramento to give the Field One Force a test run. Played most of the day on the hyperball field, along with a few runs on the upcoming NXL Las Vegas layout.
The force is the first paintball gun made by Field One, F1 is a new company that was created when Ryan Greenspan, Yosh Rau and Alex Fragie of the San Diego Dynasty purchased the company, Bob Long.
The Geo 4 name might be a little confusing. This is really the 6th Geo. There was the Geo 1, Geo 2, Geo 3, then Planet Eclipse released the CS1, which is the 4th Geo Eclipse just called in the CS1, then they released the CS2 or the 5th Geo. Now we have the Geo 4 the 6th Geo.
The name might be a little confusing, but this is the 4th version of the Planet Eclipse LV1. Planet Eclipse released the first version of the LV1 in 2013, then about a year later released the LV1.1, which was mainly just a small upgrade to the LPR. In 2016 the LV1.5 was released and discontinued in 2018, now in 2020, we have the LV1.6 which has some minor internals updates and some cosmetic changes.
Falling like a flashback to 2018. Planet Eclipse are re-re-releasing the LV1 with a new version, the LV1.6. The LV1.6 can be seen as a cosmetically updated LV1.5, that comes with a new solenoid that is easily repairable.
There have been some very very heavy rumors of a new paintball gun from Planet Eclipse the past few months, do they have an LV2 cooking or maybe a cheaper CS1?
The end of the year! There are my top picks in paintball right now. December 31st 2019. Some of the picks below like the EMek were a no brainer, but other categories like masks and packs are not so easy.
