The new GTEK 170R has arrived and Planet Eclipse managed to create another stellar entry to the upper mid-range price point. I guess we should not be surprised as Eclipse guns are known for their unparalleled performance and quality.
Using the Gamma Core technology the GTEK 170R needs neither an air transfer tube or a macroline. The new SL6 regulator allows the air to be led directly through the grip from the regulator to the bolt. The grip now houses all the technology like board, processor, solenoid etc.
The construction is extremely space efficient due to the smaller components, so much so, that the grip, is not a millimeter larger.
Thanks to a unique system, the Gamma Core only needs a working pressure of 135 PSI! This allows the GTEK 170R a very smooth, efficient and quiet shot.
For several years now Planet Eclipse spool valve markers have come equipped with the maintenance-friendly Bolt (Quick Release Bonnet). By simply lifting the rear cap on the marker you can pull out the entire bolt system (Gamma Core) out of the GTEK 170R's inner housing.
It couldn't be simpler or faster.
The marker is powered by a 9Volt battery, which is housed in the front handle. The solenoid now sits in the frame directly above the regulator. There’s no more fear of eye sensor cable breaks with the new Light Eye Pipes.
