www.paintballruinedmylife.com/2019/02/28/planet-eclipse-gtek-170r-review/ Planet Eclipse has been pumping out the new paintball guns in the past few years. We have seen an onslaught of guns from them: The LV1, LV1.1, Geo 3.1, Geo 3.5, CS1, Gtek, Etek 5 and now the Gtek 106R. Planet Eclipse has manufactured far and away more paintball guns than any other paintball company has in the past few years. As the name would suggest, the Gtek 160R is an iteration of the…

Over the last 8 years, Proto has been one of the leaders in entry-level tournament paintball guns. There have been the Proto PMR, Proto SLG, Proto Rail and now most recently the Proto Rize and Maxxed Rize. This review is going to primarily focus on the Maxxed version of the Rize. However, if you are looking at buying either the Rize or the Rize Maxxed this review should suit you, as I’ll point out the…

It’s Back. The Shocker. The Shocker brand has been in paintball, longer than most of you reading this (myself included). The Shocker was one of the guns that started the electronic low-pressure movement in the mid-90s. The Shocker has morphed along the way, from the SFT to the NXT and now SP is brought us the RSX short for resurrection (not to be confused with the Empire Resurrection). First, let’s start with SP Paintball. SP…

From a distance, it would be very hard to distinguish Planet Eclipse’s Etek 5 from the Ego LV1. In years past, the Eteks were very…

The CS1 is Planet Eclipse biggest leap forward on any platform that the company has ever introduced, yes that counts the LV1. While the LV1’s shot is widely different that previous Egos, they did not change nearly as much as they have from the Geo 3.5 to the CS1. The CS1 is different in almost every single way from it’s predecessors. Eclipse has changed a lot here, there is more difference between the CS1 and…

Since the Axe has been on the market, it has been hands-down among the best mid-level guns. The Axe totally changed the way I look at paintball guns. Before I thought it was most important to get the best performing gun. Now, I look for the best value I can find. The Axe offers just that: great performance at an amazing price. Nothing to date has been able to offer the shot quality this gun does at…
