First Strike Rounds (FSR) and Shaped projectiles can be devastating when shot through the right set up. But they aren't cheap. Every shot has to count. Every shot has to be on target. It has to go exactly where you want it. You don't want to leave anything to chance.
The first and most crucial piece of equipment you pair them with has to be the marker. It has to feed the rounds reliably, without flipping or clipping or chopping those precious shaped rounds. It has to gently load them into the barrel, then hit them with a super-consistent and controlled burst of gas in order to give every round the best possible chance of hitting that target spot down range. For this, we have you covered with the awesome Eclipse EMG100 magfed marker. That's a nailed on cert.
Maximise the ballistic capabilities of First Strike and shaped rounds
But FSR and shaped rounds allow us to push the envelope of what is possible with a paintball marker. FSR are designed to spin on their axis of flight. The small angled fins around the skirt of the FSR help induce that spin as the round flies through the air. But when fired from a conventional smooth bore barrel, this spin can take some time and distance from the end of the barrel to reach a significant rate. This delay in build up of spin means that there is a period of flight of the FSR or shaped round where the rounds aren't optimally stabilised... And what's the point of using expensive shaped rounds if you aren't going to give yourself the very best chance of hitting your target...
Enter the Eclipse Quake Barrel. Our first barrel specifically designed and optimised to maximise the ballistic capabilities of First Strike and shaped rounds.
Using the same hammer forge process used to produce some of the most expensive and accurate real steel barrels in the world, the Quake barrel has been manufactured for Eclipse by the current industry leader in rifled paintball marker barrels. Carmatech Engineering have been the class leading force in producing precision, rifled barrels with the sole purpose of firing shaped rounds as accurately as possible. No other company has put as much time and effort into design and research, including hours of shooting high speed video and crunching data on how to get the most from these rounds.
11,500rpm of rotational spin
The result of all that research and development? An innovative and Patent Pending Spline Drive rifled barrel. A barrel that can impart 11,500rpm of rotational spin on a First Strike round, BEFORE it has even left the end of the barrel. That's right. The Eclipse Quake barrel is capable of spinning a shaped round up to 11,500 times a second in just the 8.5" of its control bore. This "pre-spinning" of the round means the round is fully stabilised as it leaves the barrel, giving you outstanding accuracy and consistency.
Compatible with standard Shaft 4 or 5 barrel tips
So the Quake has been designed to adapt to your style. It is supplied as standard with a muzzle brake in a total length configuration of 11" which is perfect for short barrel and CQB set-ups. But what makes the Quake unique is that the muzzle brake is attached to the control bore using Eclipse Shaft4/5 reverse threading. So with the muzzle brake removed, any standard Shaft 4 or 5 barrel tip* (including the tip that comes stock with EMG100) can be attached to give 14.5" whisper quiet barrel when you are wanting to keep it all on the DL on the field. And if you already have an EMG100, you already have your 14.5" tip ready to go! And of course if you ever wanted to, your new Quake muzzle brake can be used on your EMG100 barrel back if you want a short barrel/CQB smooth bore setup for shooting round ball. It's like having 4 barrels in 2! It's a Win Win that we know will give you the edge to win on the field.
We offer a range of shipping options including a FREE service and Guaranteed Next Day delivery. Saturday delivery is available by arrangement.

FREE specialist delivery for pyrotechnics and gas orders over £100
£6.95 for pyrotechnics and gas orders under £100
Due to shipping regulations we are unable able to ship air / CO2 canisters (even empty) or pyrotechnics by Royal Mail. Please therefore note that if your order contains these items the standard and priority delivery options won’t be available to you at checkout.

If you order disposable pre-filled airsource bottles these will be sent filled but can only be sent on a road service so may take an extra day to reach you. Unfortunately we are unable to offer free delivery on pyrotechnic orders under £100 due to the specialist delivery requirements.
