Houston Heat Roster 2017

Houston Heat Roster 2017

Houston Heat made some big changes this off season! Not only are there several new players on the 2017 squad, some notable veterans will not be coming back! Not just that, the old coach is playing and a former player is now coaching! These are exactly the kind of wacky changes we are used to in the off season, but some of these took us by surprise. Furthermore, Heat will not be competing in the Millennium in 2017. What's the biggest change to you?

Bud Orr's Personal Sniper 1

I've been working on a project for a couple of months that I think many of you here will appreciate and enjoy.....Bud Orr Sniper #21, Bud's personal original marker.

Many thanks to Daniel Bacci for providing a platform to do a detailed write up (and editing) of my writing. Thanks also to my good friend Robert Riemenschneider for the help and encouragement, and to Rodney Martin for the help with the powder coating and parts. This is Bud Orr Sniper, #21. Many many thanks to my friend Bud Orr for entrusting me with this piece of paintball history. I need to add that this marker is NOT for sale...and will never be.

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.

He is a versatile attacker and his playing style should allow him to hit the ground running with our squad." Xfactor Coach Ryan Brand
