Planet Eclipse GTEK 170R Review (by

The new GTek 170R was perhaps the most intriguing product to emerge from the 2019 Paintball Extravaganza industry exhibition in Northern Virginia in February. Following the popular and aggressive 160R, the 170R adds newly updated features, aesthetics, and performance to produce what is sure to be another hit for the brand that keeps going to set the standard for competitive paintball markers!

The new Eclipse GTek 170R has been updated for 2019, and it now has the time-tested and proven Gamma Core spook valve drive system, which is efficient, smooth-shooting, soft on paint, and easy to maintain. All exterior air lines have been eliminated in favor of a hose-free design that routes air via the grip frame, which also houses the regulator, and has pushed the batteries inside the foregrip. The marker is made entirely of metal and has a high degree of tool-less disassembly, making cleaning and maintenance a breeze.

The Eclipse 170R’s rest of the package is just as user-friendly, with a comprehensive list of quality requirements. The marker comes with a 14-inch two-piece aluminum barrel with lots of vents, a reduced clamp feed neck,as well as a double edge trigger, and a full suite of electrical features and firing modes that can be controlled via an OLED screen on the back of the grip.

The innovative PE GTek 170R has beautiful, sleek lines, a big number of basic features, and an amazing list of enhancements for the next season and beyond. It makes me feel like a top-level competition marker, yet it comes with a surprising cost of $800!

We don’t believe there is a better deal in the paintball market for a dedicated paintball player wanting to obtain the most efficiency for their cash in a brand new paintball gun at this pricing. A detailed review has been available at
