Introducing the LVR from Planet Eclipse

Introducing the LVR from Planet Eclipse

Two weeks ago the name "LVR" was accidentally leaked by Planet Eclipse's online warranty website. It wasn't hard for paintball players all over the world to rightly assume that the name was a mash up between the legendary LV1 and the new CSR that comes with a carbon fiber barrel. It wasn't until today that we finally got our first look at the new R-Rated Ego - the LVR.

With a stripped-back approach to body styling and the addition of the incredible Shaft FL carbon fibre barrel system, the LVR is the most refined LV to date. Lighter, rarer and more focused, the LVR joins the CSR in an elite group. A group of markers coveted by many, but owned by only a few. A marker that stirs the soul...

Jon "LJ" Woodley joins Xfactor

It's official! Jon "LJ" Woodley just joined San Antonio Xfactor! I spoke to coach Ryan Brand and he was very clear that LJ is being brought on to specifically help Xfactor play more aggressively up the center of the field. "We are very excited to add LJ to the squad! We have podiumed in 5 of the last 8 events but have come up short of a win. Being consistently pretty good is not acceptable to us. We plan on bringing a championship back home to Texas."

New "GTR" Inception Gentle Touch Ram

New "GTR" Inception Gentle Touch Ram

The new Gentle Touch Ram or "GTR" is the new Inception high end fully re-buildable ram that will work on all new and old school Autocockers. The extra large ram shaft makes the gun shoot smoother and makes it more likely that the GTR ram will stop and pinch paintballs caught by the bolt rather than chopping them. Reduced ram forward force helps provide faster cycling times. The extra large ram shaft resists bending and the whole ram can even be disassembled quickly.

Things new paintball players say

Things new paintball players say

Our friends over at Defcon made this video parodying things new players say. How many of you have heard some (or all) of these? What new player sayings did they miss?

Rumor has it, they might be making more of these. I personally would love to see an airball or scenario version of this! What should they include if they make one?

Brad McCurley leaves Infamous!

It pains me to say that INFAMOUS and I will be parting ways for the 2017 season. We part on the best of terms and all understand that we each need to do what is best for our families. We understand that this isnít necessarily goodbye forever, but regardless, this has been one of the hardest things Iíve ever dealt with. The #INFam will always be family and juuuust wait Ďtil you see the wedding video from Sina and Arthur! Haha

Learn from the best: Paintball Combine

Learn from the best: Paintball Combine

The Boston Paintball Combine is a tradition. Every year for the last 12 years, we have brought in some of the biggest and best known players in Paintball for the benefit of our local player base, to learn from and improve upon their skills. Bigger than the tradition tho is the mark it leaves on our region. The chance to stand face to face, to learn from and to have real conversations with guys like Nicky Cuba, Greg Hastings, Billy Bernacchia, Nick Slowiak, Ryan Greenspan, Konstantin Fedorov, Brad McCurley, Todd Martinez , Damian Ryan and this year Rusty Glaze just to name a few is an opportunity very few players ever have and the impact is sometimes immeasurable.
Part Clinic. Part Classroom. Part Tryout. Be part of something great Friday January 20.

Buy the actual equipment Raney Stanczak's used to help Edmonton Impact win their very first World Cup! Impact had a dream season and this is the actual gear used in that historic run. Raney is slinging paintball guns, tanks, jerseys, loaders, shirts and more so get it now! The only downside is that you won't be able to blame your equipment anymore if you lose.

A year in pictures

A year in pictures

12 events, 2 countries, 15,532 miles, 41,740 pictures, 18 hours, 35 minutes, and 43 seconds of raw footage. This was my year in paintball. It has been an incredible journey for me, both within the sport and personally. I got to travel the country (and see new one too), make great new friends, see tons of old ones, and work with a lot of truly wonderful people along the way. Please check out some of my favorite images.
