The LV1.1 Pro takes the already tried, tested and trusted LV1 platform a step further by way of subtle exterior modifications and performance enhancing internal adjustments.
The new unibody foregrip improves shooting comfort and marker stability with it’s contoured one-piece construction.
Internally, the enlarged internal LPR chamber allows for lower LPR pressure, more consistent velocities, and a smoother shot profile making the LV1.1 Pro even softer on paint. The addition of the new Shaft Pro barrel tip, developed with some of the top Pro players in the world, brings functionality to its form to provide ultimate performance in all conditions.
As a result, the LV1.1 Pro feels and shoots like nothing else on the market.
Internally, the LV1.1 Pro introduces a revolutionary design that rewrites what can be achieved with this type of platform. The new system incorporates a profiled lever between the rammer and the exhaust valve that is used to separate the action of the rammer and bolt from the action of the valve. This additional element in the mechanism has several major benefits over the conventional knock-open system, particularly in respect to the force required to open the valve and the rate at which the valve is opened.This indirect operation of the valve means it can be opened more slowly, with considerably less force, yet retain excellent seal integrity.
The benefits when shooting? Smaller forces generated by the reciprocating components (bolt and rammer) and a smoother profile of the air released behind the ball which correlates to greatly reduced kick and significantly quieter sound signature.
The change is so marked that in terms of feel and sound the LV1.1 Pro is no longer comparable to other poppet-based markers, but instead finds itself competing with the very best spool operated devices. It has to be seen and shot to fully appreciate the leap forward this system has made.
There are many more improvements throughout the entire marker, from front to back, inside and out. For example the valve itself is a completely new design that offers far superior flow paths through the entire valve chamber; the new LPR is fully integrated into the body of the marker so that it no longer protrudes beneath the barrel; the Zick3 rammer is designed to accelerate much more slowly, to be as gentle as possible as it loads the ball into the barrel; and each LV1.1 Pro comes complete with two different weight rammers, one for efficiency, one for lower operating pressures; the AT Pipe system removes the need for macroline hose and fittings from the POPS to the inline regulator; the Regulator Sleeve and Crown integrate to provide a stable and ergonomic, non-slip foregrip; the grip and console offer a continuous soft rubber gripping surface around the frame; and the Cure5 bolt incorporates both a detachable soft rubber tip and free-floating transfer port seals.
Of course all this has been achieved without sacrificing the simplicity, reliability and ease of maintenance of a true Eclipse product.
