Yeah, someone sent me a pic on facebook, but this one is much nicer, thanks

Being a Fl woodsballer, this camo works awesome among the palms. I picked off 14 people in our last scenario laying amongst the palms in my Valken TS's. This will be the icing on the cake.

Would be nice if Valken added gloves in matching VTac colors.

The guys at Sly have a good sense of style about them, if they are producing a marker, I have high expectations. The Sly Fly was the nicest Angel Ive seen.

Best of luck to Don and the rest of the Sly crew. Great products and great customer service. Hopefully they will keep making the Sly diesel barrels.

Hopefully it makes valkens **** decent and sly's legit equipment cheaper. Valken can make it economical and sly can design the **** out of it and make it gold.

Maybe kee will counter with a what? Dlx buyout? That would be incredibly interesting though possibly pointless because they own many of the patents already? Haha doubt kee would do anything, but valken gaining ground scares me, I've never quite like valken. I will admit their paint was superb practice paint because you got high end paint for $50, although some of it wasn't the most brittle it shot money. However valken just doesn't seem kosher.

Are you aware that Gino, the man behind Valken use to be the man behind National Paintball Supply (now KEE action sports)?

Id much rather seeing valken as the main distributor and powerhouse then the monopoly known as KEE who buys up washed up companies for their patents and trademarks just to get out of having to pay money on new products in the future.

Better them buying up patents and manufacturing those products than just letting good ideas die because no one has the money to manufacture it.

Agreed! Their tournament pants aren't well put together, they rip like crazy. I've even had one of their barrel bags rip at the seam. They may be a legit company but their **** is junk IMO.

Yea, wanting those jobs to stay in America for...Americans is me being on a high horse. You must be the same person whom called me a "Communist" on Yahoo because I said we needed to get new elected officials in office who will actually do the job they were elected to do for the people instead of for special interests. lol But anyways...back on topic. It seems like a good move for Valken.

Yes I do recall hearing that somewhere, however I don't like much of empires stuff pre-2009. It didn't seem much better than what valken is putting out now. Like I said hopefully sly will make valkens soft goods legit. Then they just have to revise their loader and it'll be perfect.

so what should we expect to see from this? I have Never liked any valken gear, but there prices are decent, and i Love everything i have from Sly, but your prices have went up in the last 1-2 years. Will we see a drop in Sly quality?

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.
