The SL66

This information was taken from NickyT's thread on PbN which can be found here. More information can be found at www.PlanetEclipse.com

Planet Eclipse decided to try and make an extremely light marker, and as far as I'm concerned, they suceeded. I believe XSV will be using this marker, and it will be released sometime in April.

This gun is much smaller than the Ego6, with it being 14% lighter and 0.2" shorter. As you can see in the pictures below, the trigger guard has more metal shaved off on the top, which means no more magnets, only springs. PE doesn't seem to think that will matter much because apparently the XSV guys only use spring return.

Specs:

NEW - Exclusive Light-Weight Parts to SL66:
SL66 Frame
SL66 Trigger
SL66 Front Cap
SL66 On/off purge
SL66 Front Regulator Mount
SL66 Swivel In-Line Regulator
SL66 Front LPR Cap
SL66 Bolt
SL66 XSV Machined Body
SL66 XSV Navigation Console

Other Parts:
Nexus Style Eye Covers
Ego 6 Board
6 Firing Modes
Shaft 2-piece Barrel
C-Lever Clamping Feed

Ive been waiting for a new Ego to come out. If the price on this is anywhere reasonable, I'll be picking one up thru my sponsor/store.

So its 830.76 grams = 1.83 pounds.

Now what does that include?

I personally like it better than any other ego, except maybe the Nexus. Only thing is the reg looks really wierd.... but then again all the ego regs have always looked wierd to me when they were first released, then I got used to them.

I don't think that reg looks bad at all.

Not that it really matters; your hand is going to be covering it up anyway.

agreed. although i thing its more about choice than anything else (at this time)

they're starting to sound like WDP and/or indian creek though

although really, the mantis ego and the dark were both sold and manufactured by companies other than PE.

If you think about it, they have had 1 gun each year, with 2 team pl versions of that gun each year (nexus, and XSV), the sl66 is kind of a weird exception.

yea...in my opinion...all the egos are about the same. I have a upgraded 05 and I'm perfectly fine with it and I see no need to spend about 1,000 more to get this one.

Wtf, a brown and silver one?

Wow, that is probably the ugliest color sheme i've ever seen. As for the new egos on the top of this thread, the charcoal one is pretty hot but idk the frame looks... weird. the "snatch grip" is like a foot long.
