Valken set up to sell paint at Huntington Beach NPPL

I just confirmed it again with one of the owners of the NPPL, Valken is the only paint company currently set up to sell paint at the Huntington Beach NPPL.

What does this mean for the teams that have to shoot other brands? Will they be allowed to bring paint?

Or do you guys think that GI/Procaps or KEE will end up attending?


EDIT: One of the league owners clarifying that the NPPL isn't turning paint vendors away:

that is just bs. why would the event organizer let a company monopolize paint at an event.

but the other companies will still attend, especially since hunt beach has been growing pretty fast for turn out year to year

Of course I asked. The answer I got was a non-committal, "not as of right now."

Valken should take their PSP budget $45,000, and use it to leverage out the other companies or make them pay more.

If their sponsor doesn't have the ability to come and supply paint, I think that relieves the team from any contractual/sponsorship agreement to use the company's paint, no? (assuming this is not an issue on the NPPL's side, but from the paint manufacturers.)

On another note, Avid Extreme Sports supports Valken and so do I!

I'm sick of the politics in paintball though.

This is interesting since Gino posted on Facebook that he was almost blocked out of NPPL also...
Some paint company isn't playing nice...

It would be surprising if Kee and GI didn't want to be at the one of the biggest events of the year. Makes me wonder what the financial's are on attending/ what they usually make.

"Currently set up to sell" vs "You CANT sell" ... hmm

All companies are welcome, we have not told anyone no they can't bring paint. Please get facts straight.

I doubt Kee or GI/DXS will pass up HB unless there is a good reason for it. They have been at NPPL events in the past and the NPPL is run by players, not companies. Also, if pro teams are sponsored by Kee or GI/DXS, won't the companies want to be there so their pro teams can show of their product?

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
