Ego 8 Released

Planet Eclipse Ego 8
Planet Eclipse Ego 8

The much anticipated Ego 8 by Planet Eclipse has been announced. There have been some small and major changes from the Ego 7.

One of the main features of the Ego8 that has enabled the reduction in body/frame profile and allowed the rear of the frame to come closer to the barrel axis is the development of a completely new QEV assembly. – Planet Eclipse

Basically this means that Planet Eclipse made the Ego 8 more air efficient – a major plus to the gun.

There have been many “borrowed” technologies from their SL74 that are being used in the Ego 8. This isn’t bad necessarily. Maybe they received positive feedback from their SL74 customers saying they were pleased with its technology? Or maybe PE just got lazy and didn’t want to change anything.

Not many forumers have been saying positive things about the Ego 8 so far.
