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:

The stock Ego6 is 966 grams, so I'll let you do the math.
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.
