First Looks - Planet Eclipse Geo 2

When Planet Eclipse came out with the Ego10, people have been wondering if there will be a Geo2. paintball forums all over the world had people talking about it, some believed there will be a new Geo, but some were sceptical.

Until recently, Planet Eclipse released a picture of the Geo2 on their blog. Looks like there will be a Geo2 after all.

And then during PSP Phoenix, SK Moscow, a Planet Eclipse sponsored team from Europe, was seen shooting the Geo2 (probably a prototype version).

A few days after Phoenix, a few leaked pictures surfaced on the internet, which gave us the first real look at the new marker. (The first pic is rendered, while the one in Phoenix is not very clear...)

Judging from the last few pics, i think the original Geo looks better. The body of the Geo2 looks too 'tube-like' (i don't know how else to put it...)

The original Geo, Planet Eclipse's first spool valve marker.

Planet Eclipse has not release any technical information yet, but i expect to see some major improvements over the Geo1 since they are releasing it only a month after the Geo+ (which is a Geo1 with GST kit installed).

MSRP is US$1250. Some say performance of the Geo2 will rival the Dye NT (US$1549.95). If this is true, then it will surely be more popular then the NT because of the price difference.

We'll just have to wait till May...
