Jack found this on a paintball forum posted up by ‘nostayhome’ and wanted to share with everyone. These are pics of his sons Halloween outfit….. Nice Work !!!

FREE Stuff !!!!!!

I would like to think that everyone that works at Planet Eclipse loves the company (I could be slightly deluded) and we know and love that fact that we have Eclipse Fans around the world. Some people are happy just being fans, some go the extra mile. At Campaign cup this year I was confronted with this bunch of… well… fans…….

If you have any weird and wonderful Planet Eclipse stuff going on or know of anyone that goes that extra mile then send in your images. I tell you what, let’s make this a little more interesting. Lets run a competition every couple of months (don’t bother holding me to every 60 days) where the best photo of someone ‘reppin’ Eclipse in a cool way will win a prize. Depending on what they do will depend on their prize…. Impress me and the prize will get better!! It can be anything so use your imagination! Get Eclipse stickers on some super stars, tattoo’s, crop circles, even risky stuff will be very well excepted… Whatever your weird and wonderful minds come up with.

E-mail them in to me at Planet Eclipse on and we will share the best with everyone.

Bring them on, let’s see what you have…….

Monday, 19 October 2009

Every now and again we get an e-mail that makes us smile. Some weird, some wonderful and some well, not publishable.. Here is one that we received recently:

I am a Police Officer in California and I play on a Police & Fire Paintball Team called 187. We have three (3)

5-Man Teams that compete in the Western States Police & Fire Games. I just wanted to share my story with you about our experience with Planet Eclipse markers and products. In July of 2009 our team was shooting a variety of different markers. Later that month we competed in the Western States Police & Fire Games in Southern California. Out of of three teams, we finished with two 2nd place and one 3rd place finish. Not bad considering we were using a mix of non Planet Eclipse markers that gave us a bunch of gun problems throughout the event.

In August of 2009, we took one (1) team to compete in the Police & Fire World Games in British Columbia, Canada. Prior to the event, we purchased six (6) Ego markers. We ended up taking 1st place and winning the event and becoming the 2009 Police & Fire World Champions in Paintball. We plan on competing in the next 2011 Police & Fire World Games in New York to defend our title.

I wanted to take the time to let you guys at Planet Eclipse know that I feel the Ego markers are awesome. The performance, reliability, and effciency are truely first class. We did not have one marker that had any problems or issues and that enabled us to focus on our games and not worry about anything else. I feel that the Ego markers we switched to gave us a huge advantage over the competition and played a huge role in us wining the gold medal at the 2009 Police & Fire World Games.

I'd like to thank Planet Eclipse for making the best markers and I'd also like to thank Darin Cravea at DGX Paintball in Napa, Ca. for all the support he provided us.

Once again, thank you and we look forward to continuing to use Planet Eclipse products in the future.

Team 187:


Well, what can we say... Well Done and I'm glad your getting the service and performance you deserve... Keep up all the good work as well as kicking ass !!

Thomas Taylor Has Heart

Planet Eclipse 50 cal Demo!!!

The E-TV crew is hard at work producing a demo with Jack Wood featuring the 50 cal ego drop in kit. It should be posted on this blog by tomorrow at the latest!!

Stay tuned!!!

Vicious makes it to SUNDAY

In their 3rd game of the semi-finals, XSV and Vicious battled it out for the right to play in the final round of World Cup. Despite the tremendous heart put forth by XSV, Vicious won with a score of 7 - 5.

Thomas Taylor Has Heart

XSV just took on Vicious in their 2nd match and it was a game to remember. Just like the first game, it looked like Vicious was going to run away with it, but SXV pulled it together.

As Thomas Taylor lays in the pit with PSP medical staff, his team takes the field for the last point of the game. On the verge of heat stroke, Taylor musters as much air as he can and screams,"WIN!!!"

XSV went on to win the last point of the game and is now one game of way from making it to the finals.

Vicious vs XSV - World Cup SEMI FINALS

This morning at 8:50am, Vicious and XSV went head to head in their first of three rounds in the semi-finals of the PSP 2009 World Cup.

Vicious came on incredibly strong and scored seven straight points. XSV will have to beat Vicious the next two games if they want to make it to Sunday.

But... Remember what happened at the last event... Vicious Smashed XSV in the Prelims 7 - 0 and then Vicious returned the favor in the next round handing it to them 7 - 0 and getting sweet revenge... What's going to happen this time???

12:00pm is high noon and time to separate the men from the boys!!!

Impact vs Joy Division

Check this World Cup Offer.

Its getting hotter here, I think the heat has gotten to me as this is an offer not to be missed.

At the World Cup, Team Edition Markers and Flag Edition Markers are $1095. If you want the bargain of the event so far check this:

The next person that comes into the booth and sings the American National Anthem or the British Nation Anthem can then buy either a Union Jack EGO9 or a Stars and Stripes EGO9 for $1095 they will also get a FREE GEO... YES A FREE GEO WORTH $995.......

There are ONLY 1 of each EGO9 in this offer (1 x Stars and Stripes = American National Anthem and 1 x Union Jack = British National Anthem). So it might be a good idea to ask if the offer has gone before you start your singing !!!!

Don't worry are not expecting the whole anthem just the first verse will be fine.

FREE GEO is either in Fire or Covert.

So what you waiting for..... Doh, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, doooooo!

Aftershock vs Hurricanes Video

Chicago Aftershock vs Hurricanes

Two of Planet Eclipse's top teams went head to head today for their first of four prelim games. In their race to 7, Chicago Aftershock and the Hurricanes battled it out in their fight to make the semifinals.

Aftershock started out strong with two points, but their momentum was challenged with 6 straight Hurricane wins. On the verge of defeat, Aftershock managed to pull it back together and almost tied up the score at 5 to 6 with 3 minutes left on the clock. Despite strong Aftershock team moral, the Hurricanes were the first to see 7.

Frank Connell of the Hurricanes stated, "The game was evenly matched. We controlled the snake side by eliminating the snake corner 70% of the time allowing Billy to work his magic in the snake" This was the first game Frank "The Tank" Connell has played with the Hurricanes. With his addition to the team, we can expect to see a lot from the Hurricanes at World Cup and the upcoming season.

After not winning a single game in Chicago, The Hurricanes rolled their guns, played good paintball, and showed their Planet Eclipse pride with a well earned win. Aftershock continues on to play the Naughty Dogs later today.

World Cup Update with XSV player Junior Brown

This morning marked the beginning of the 2009 PSP World Cup. After XSV's first game, Junior Brown gives us an update on how things went.

The Beastman Returns.

Brad Maughan one of the ETV’s Camera 1 and formally of Dynasty has dusted off his playing boots and will be pulling on an ‘Operation Sandbagger’ Jersey for this years World Cup event. Brad who has not played competitively since 2004 has been seen training with his old teams mates and rumour has it his nickname ‘Beastman’ is still quite apt. All he has to do now is drag 4 or 5 drunker Operation Sandbaggers out of a bar in time for the first game.

Welcome Back Brad and Welcome to the Team.. Strap in Pal, it’s going to be a ride !!!!
