components. A work of art.

From the ergonomics to the electronics, reliability to maintenance, and performance to aesthetics, the engineers at Planet Eclipse have left no stone unturned in that elusive quest for perfection. The result? A radical departure from what came before. A new awakening. The CS1.

THE CS1 SIGNALS THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA FOR THE ECLIPSE GEO LINE

Before delving into the technical innovation that has gone into the CS1 just take a minute and look at the aesthetic beauty of this groundbreaking new marker; at how every component has been designed and manufactured to run seamlessly into the next. Note how the all-new POPS assembly blends effortlessly into the grips, which in turn run smoothly and uninterrupted into the frame and upwards into the body. Gone are the disjointed and disconnected collection of components found on other markers. The CS1 has been created with a holistic approach in order to achieve a new and

Part of the new aesthetic has been the removal of all external hoses and pipes. For the first time on an Eclipse marker all air lines run through the frame of the marker. This has been achieved by relocating the new SL5 inline regulator (HPR) to the inside of the frame. But unlike other markers that place the primary regulator in the frame, the CS1 retains a full size piston virtually identical to the previous generation SL4 regulator. The benefit of retaining such a large piston?


Well, primarily it means that the CS1 will run equally well on tanks

of a very wide output range. The CS1 will work just as well on a

tank with 850psi output as one with 250psi output. The secondary benefit of this is that the CS1 can shoot deeper into the tank without fear of plummeting velocities as the tank pressure drops.

The SL5 regulator is actually housed between the new POPS assembly and the frame with velocity adjustment through the

bottom of the POPS bonnet. The construction is incredibly robust.

And of course you will still find the helpful + and - indicators to help guide you on which way to make adjustments.

Driven by a custom SMC pilot valve that is significantly over-rated for this application means the solenoid is robust and durable enough to handle the very worst conditions paintball could throw at it. And because every component barring the pilot is now manufactured in-house we have been able to make it completely user-serviceable - not that it should ever need it. From there, the new ISCIS3 solenoid feeds air into the next generation IVCore drivetrain assembly. The IVCore was the first commercially available system to bring true decoupled breechsensing valve technology to a system tuned for reliability and efficiency whilst being completely dwell insensitive. Yet in this latest

With the foregrip off you also have access to the tool-less breech sensor covers. This means that the detents and the breech sensor can be fully serviced without the use of any tools. Maintaining and cleaning your breech furniture has never been as simple or straightforward. And as an added bonus, the breech sensor cover also reveals a spare set of detents for use in emergencies. The rear grip frame has also been completely re-designed. Greater emphasis has been placed on the overall ergonomics and fit of the grips into the design of the marker. The grips run seamlessly into the frame, body and POPS. The grip is now constructed of

two parts that overlap and lock together down either side of the frame. The rear section houses the now-magnified GUI (Graphical User Interface) and pushbuttons, all molded into one piece. The front section wraps around the front of the frame and up behind the trigger. All key contact areas are covered in micro texture both on the foregrip and rear grips. This texture ensures a steadfast purchase on the marker in the wettest and slimiest conditions.

The trigger has also been reworked as a 2-piece design. Still running on widely spaced dual ball races, all trigger stops are now hidden so that no screws strike external metalwork leaving a far cleaner look. The CAD for the trigger shoe will be made available open source for those wanting something different, so they can design and make their own.


As with all Eclipse markers, one of the primary objectives and

EXCLUSIVE CS1 FEATURES

design criteria has been to make the CS1 as easy to maintain as possible. It’s taken a lot of time and hard work to achieve, but at last the CS1 offers elegant hoseless design without compromise to reliability, ease of maintenance or teching.

The CS1 utilizes a new interface between the electronics in the frame and those mounted to the body, such as the breech sensor and the solenoid. Gone are the plug-in wire-type connections, replaced instead by edge-mount sprung terminals as used in mobile military telecommunications devices to provide reliable and durable connectivity. This type of interface allows the body and frame to be separated without the need to remove the grips or any of the electronics. Simply remove the two hidden frame screws and the frame and body separate effortlessly. This allows quick and easy disassembly to aid with rapid diagnosis and repair in the unlikely event of an internal issue. The CS1 has been years in the making. Thousands of hours of design. Many thousands more of testing. To get to what you see before you. It really is a new beginning for the Geo. One we know
