Planet Eclipse LVR Unboxing

Planet Eclipse LVR Unboxing

The brand new Planet Eclipse LVR went from being top secret to being available nationwide in no time flat. The newest Ego has the amazing new carbon fiber barrel kit and some of the lightest milling ever available for any Ego.

I'm still sick but here's a quick unboxing video. Shooting video is coming as soon as I can get a fill and shoot 500 rounds out in the cold without dying.

Pro Files: Axel Gaudin Interview

Pro Files: Axel Gaudin Interview

Axel Gaudin has been one of the most dynamic players to explode on the scene in recent years. He is now well on his way to becoming a seasoned veteran, but in 2012, he was virtually unknown to players here in the US when he debuted with Russian Legion and was up for PBA's Rookie of the Year.

I first noticed Axel simply because of his speed and his height. I was watching the TonTons play in Malaysia back in 2011 and asked Davey Williamson (Ironmen, Miami Effect, XSV, Dynasty) who he thought was going to win the Intercontinental Cup. We watched the breakout and Davey said right away, "that guy is going to be really good. You can't teach speed. I think the Tontons will take it."

NXL 5-man winter classic

NXL 5-man winter classic

Have you ever wanted to take on the best paintball players in the world? Paintball used to be full of fun "one off" events like Mardi Gras, Skyball, Aruba, EZ Indoor, Ultimate Madness and The Masters where there were no series points, no promotion or relegation and you went to see if you and your friends could beat the teams you'd mostly seen in videos. The NXL is bringing it back. Come and be part of the fun this February and take home memories, cash or both.

Clint Johnson to Xfactor

Clint Johnson to Xfactor

In a surprise move, Clint Johnson (number 58 on AC Dallas) will be taking the field with San Antonio Xfactor next season. "We are very excited to have Clint on the team for 2017! We have been watching Clint develop over the last couple of years and have been really impressed. He is a versatile attacker and his playing style should allow him to hit the ground running with our squad." Xfactor Coach Ryan Brand

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

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.
