Looks like it shoots pretty sweet. This might be the only planet eclipse gun that gets a plus from me. Its really hard for me to hate on this gun.

the bolt system looks like a mini's so I'm guessing they were right when they said spool poppit, technically wrong but I'll give it to em

I'll see if I can make an animated bolt cycle so everyone can see what actually happens in the gun.

As promised, here's a .gif of the engine in action. Blue is from the solenoid. Also, the bolt return is separate from the movement of the shaft. It will move backwards when the pressure is released from the firing chamber, not necessarily when the shaft starts to move forward.

Sorry... But... Looks like a spool to me. I dont see any poppet being hit in order to open the valve.

PE calls that central shaft the "firing poppet" in the manual (which is now up on PE's site), but all I see is a dual stage spool.

Indeed. Poppets get smacked. (or pushed) But I guess if they want to call it a poppet, so they can try to edge into the "inline poppet" market... Whatever.

Definitely has some major similarities to an automag.

It'll be intersting to see how smooth and efficient this thing is.

Because that's what we had when I was a kid

It's basically an automag that doesn't have constant pressure on the bolt. They've taken the classic design, and engineered it so it doesn't need a sear.

I do have a question though: in yor .gif you said the blue is from the solenoid. How does that part of the bolt function? Does the pressure from the solenoid push the shaft back to release the pressure into the bolt?

Yes. Of the two o-rings that seal in the blue space, the rear seal is larger than the front seal, meaning that when pressure is applied to that area, there will be rearward force, pushing the central shaft backwards. When the solenoid is turned off, the pressure stops, and the spring that sits behind the shaft pushes the shaft forwards again.

its confusing as fuck... it better shoot well, because of this theory i developed for spools :lol:

Complicated as fuck bolt engine = smooth, quiet, efficient. Eg, MacDev Clone VX, Macdev Droid
Simply reliable bolt engine = not as quiet, not as efficient. Eg, Geo 2

Execptions: dye cuz there stupid, they make a complicated bolt engine thats smooth as fuck, but lacks effecincy, and another more complicated (and downright stupid)bolt engine thats always broken :)

The only big thing wih composite on it is the frame, and even then it's really not that much. The main body of the marker is still metal.

I really don't understand why everyone hates the composite frame. The only downside I see with composite frames is that they cannot be anodized. Honestly I have shot the Etek 3 LT and AM both extensively, and I can't tell the difference between the two.

My outlook on it is this. The etek 3 had around the same efficiency as the Ego 10 - 8 pods, so I am assuming that the Etha will get around the same efficiency as the Geo+ (which is also from 2010) which was in my experience 6 and a half pods. Bad evidence to base it off of, but thats just what I think

The Etek 3 is the exact same platform as the Ego. The Etha is nothing like the Geo.

That only works for the Etek because it's the same platform as the Ego. The Etha is a completely different gun than the Geo. The only thing we can say about them right now is that they're both spools.

Some people were hearing that it might be around 8-10 pods, but I have no way to verify the validity of those claims.

Any guess at this point is just a shot in the dark as to what it is.

Until someone makes a video of an efficiency test, we can't say anything about efficiency.

Unless you want to make up numbers...
To which I guess that the ETHA will shoot 15 pods on a 48/3000. I mean Bob long could do it right? :dodgy:

I wonder if they're coming out with some cheaper shaft 4 barrel backs with a smaller bore. The barrels they have out right now are way to pricey for a 400 dollar gun.

I'll also pat myself on the back for guessing that it'll be be a inline poppet, even though I agree that it looks like a spool from the diagrams :P

I'm glad it's not 500 dollars like everyone was making it out to be, I know I wouldn't consider it if it was.

http://www.pbnation....d.php?t=3690092

They say its louder and not as smooth as an Ego (a tester said it was pretty loud), there is a little vibration in the shot, has SL3 reg, shaft 4 barrel, one person said it out performs axe (thats all opinion), and trigger is better than the eteks

or possibly rhino XL making a spring for it like in the legend

Lurker, possibly. The Rhino XL drive spring is a different concept from what this gun needs. And as far as how it operates, the only similarity to the Mini is the bolt and bolt spring. In the Mini, the opening of the bolt causes pressure to drop behind the poppet, and in this, the central shaft opens, allowing the dump chamber pressure to open the bolt.

It's basically an automag without a sear.

I'll also pat myself on the back for guessing that it'll be be a inline poppet, even though I agree that it looks like a spool from the diagrams :P

I pat myself on the back for saying cheaper than $500. :lol:
