Planet Eclipse ETEK 5 Paintball Gun - HDE Urban
The ETEK line has always stood for durability and reliability.
Now in its 5th generation, the New ETEK5 holds true to those
same basic principles. It utilizes the finest materials wrapped up
in a package that offers outstanding performance, class-leading
ergonomics and an array of features that make it a formidable
proposition at its price point. It pushes the boundaries of what has
come to be expected from a mid-range marker.
The ETEK5 has achieved this by using the trickle-down effect of
features and ergonomics from its class-leading high-end siblings.
For example, the ETEK5 borrows its basic architecture and form
from the incredible EGO LV1. Its integrated LPR assembly and
SL4 inline regulator ensure the ETEK5 operates with exceptional
consistency whilst employing an extended pitch between the
foregrip and gripframe, providing the most stable and comfortable
shooting platform possible. The all-new dual-density wrap-around
grips and foregrips not only look the business, but also use our
latest stippled inserts to give the user a higher level of grip and
control, regardless of playing conditions.
The ETEK5 points accurately and naturally whether snap-shooting
or running and gunning.
Internally, the ETEK5 now incorporates Zick3 technology which
introduces a true 2-stage acceleration profile. This provides a very
gentle initial acceleration to the bolt and ball which then increases
during the 2nd stage of the bolt stroke to enable super-fast rates
of fire. It enables the ETEK5 to be more gentle on paint whilst also
On top of that, the ETEK5 operates at much lower pressures
compared to previous ETEK models. The much larger valve
chamber combines with the high-flow valve and new soft-tip Cure5bolt
to deliver an HPR operating pressure of around 150psi and
an LPR pressure of 85psi. The result is a quieter, smoother shot
as well as having the added benefit of being more gentle on paint
both in the breech and in the barrel.
As standard the ETEK5 uses its crisp, multi-coloured LED system
to indicate the current state of the marker. Firing modes and
parameters are easily accessed and adjusted via the LED using
combinations of button presses and trigger pulls.
For those wanting to take things a step further, the ETEK5
has the option of a graphical user interface through the OLED
For the first time on any marker, the ETEK5 allows the user to plug
this OLED board directly onto the existing standard circuit board
without the need for any additional upgrades, such as frames,
grips or even the circuit board itself.
This quick and easy to install upgrade gives the user an instant
rear-mounted graphical display that sits within the existing window
at the rear of the frame.
The OLED upgrade empowers the user to quickly and easily
adjust the marker control parameters, such as firing mode, dwell
and also to monitor breech sensor status, battery level, shot count
and the actual rate of fire in real-time. Semi and ramping firing
modes are fully configurable to comply with the requirements of
every major paintball league.
The ETEK5 continues the platform’s recent success of combining
advanced lightweight and durable composites in core areas of
the marker. Failure rates in areas such as the gripframe currently
stand at less than 0.05% for all ETEK3/4 models ever produced
proving time and again that these incredibly tough components
are capable of resisting any and all kinds of abuse thrown at them.
They are more than up to the job of carrying the Eclipse name for
reliability in any condition.
Welcome. To the 5th dimension.
