◼️ Planet Eclipse’s New Paintball Gun – Planet Eclipse have released a new paintball gun, well maybe not released maybe took something out for testing in public. It really is a great way to generate some buzz, and get people talking about Planet Eclipse. All we know for sure is that pictures exists and a video teaser from PE. To me it looks like it might be a new Gtek 160R maybe a Gtek 320R?

◼️ V Mech M1 Hopper – A mechanical force-fed hopper. This thing is straight out of a 1995 paintball magazines, It has 90s all over it, cheap plastic, phillips screws holding it together and the bad design. Anyway, the hopper looks interesting, at least it is something we don’t have on the market. You load the paintball in and they fall into a type of corkscrew that feeds the balls into the feed-tube and into paintball gun, if you are familiar with the Q-Loader hopper/pod system think about it kind of like that.
