How does the Bob long g6r and the planet eclipse ego 11 match up with each other? All the way from the price (used) to reliability and smoothness.

Ok. Am I a bit biased? I guess, but I will try and be as unbiased as possible.

I have a g6r. I prefer it. It is quieter and smoother than an ego 11 I have ever seen. It is also lighter and macroless. The milling is incredible, especially if you get a private label milling such as the dragon. With an lp poppet and a good tuning, I would consider it more comparable to an lv1 than an ego 11 in terms of shot quality, even though the lv1 will still shoot better.

The ego however has reliability and ease of maintenance though, there's just no arguing that. You can throw it in the bottom of a lake and then take it out a year later and shoot it.

Both are backed by great companies, although there's no beating planet. Both will equal the same cost, since a g6r is cheaper, but you will have to buy a pressure tester and an lp tank if you don't have it already. And to top it off, the packaging is night and day better on the ego.

Reliability, cs, and packaging= ego 11
Shot quality, weight= g6r

G6R is going to shoot better, but requires a bit more love and care. So long as you're willing to buy some dow55 and a pressure tester, I'd say get the G6R.

Another thing to consider is PE's network of authorized dealers and service centers. For example, my local field, Boston Paintball, is an authorized center, so they can work on PE guns and they stock PE parts. With Bob Long, there is no network. You'll be dealing with BLAST for service you can't do yourself. Not hating on Bob...I shoot a timmy. Just trying to give you the full picture.

There are bob long certified dealers/techs. Tim over at breakout action sports is an example. Now, not as many as pe, but there are still some

For softness on paint the Ego 11 wins in my experience. Pretty much everythig else has been covered.

A techt Kush bolt in a g6r makes it just as soft on paint.

Or a pillow bolt, which does come stock on private label and premium g6rs

The Ego 11 operates differently and is designed to be as gentle during the loading process as possible. Not saying the G6R wasnt but in my experience Eclipse is definitely at the forefront in paint handling.

It really depends on the bolt not the operation.  There is a video on how the planet eclipse cure bolt evolved overt the models and shows that the bolt head itself is where all of the anti chop technology is.  The g6r has better milling and no macroline as well as being better on air like all bob long guns.

Macroless and milling is a personal preference thing. Can hardly consider those as "upgrades"

From someone who has had both. STOCK Ego 11 over a STOCK G6R any day.
