Well I recently I just discovered the macro line swivel fiasco with Planet Eclipse. Yes I have an EGO 8 with the horizontal swivel and 90 degree macro line elbow. I want to put a POPS on for an ASA and figured might as well just get the 45 degree swivel like the EGO 11 right? I'm sure many of you know my just realized plight or at least heard about it. If you haven't, Google about it. EGO 11 swivel and why PE won't sell them at any cost for fear it'll be put into a GEO 2 which causes a safety concern.
Ya know what....I'll sign any legal document necessary to say that I'm putting this 45 degree swivel on my EGO 8 and it will remain on that gun as long as it's in my possession. If for any reason the gun passes out of my possession, I will mail the swivel back to Planet Eclipse or pay a massive fine and life imprisonment!
I do not own a GEO 2 and wouldn't put it on one if I had one. Maybe PE could spend five minutes and make some specific 45 degree swivels just for the GEO 2. Then guys who want to make them look like a GEO 3 can do so safely and the rest of us can finally get the goddamn 45 swivel for our EGO's or whatever! But no, the only way I can get one is to buy a second hand EGO 11. Course then I'm just going to use the '11 and shelf the '08 anyway.
Oh there's ways around it. pick up a 1/8 45 degree fitting and put a straight macro fitting on it or just get a CP reg and change it to bottom fitting. Or I know a machine shop that will duplicate the EGO 11 swivel down to the last micron minus the ECLIPSE logo. All that shouldn't be fucking necessary! If PE is just trying to cover their own ass from a misfiring GEO 2 lawsuit, then do what everyone else does and put a warning on the package! Then sell the fucking 45 swivel to the many that are ready to slit throats to get one!
This is exactly the little shit that pisses me off!
P.S. : Yes i call markers guns just like squirt guns, calking guns, nail guns, staple guns, etc. I know why the name "marker" was brought about, but it's still a type of gun so suck it up! Look at all the MIL SIM crap out now, close as I've seen to when I was in Afghanistan! Don't try to sugar coat it that half of paintball, the half not all splash anodized and colorful jersey'd, isn't guns and war games! That doesn't mean it's harmful or deadly, it's still just fun and recreation so suck it!
