so my girl friend has got me into paintball recently (she grew up around it her parents own a field near my house) and i started buying gear i love Angel and sadly yes i know there out of bussiness so far i have bought a brand new Angel A1 Fly very sexy gun and a Angel pod pack along with 3 fat boy pods my question is did Angel or WDP ever make a hopper/loader i know they have WDP angel air lp tanks finding out its pretty hard to get ahold of one

Wow, a girl getting a guy into pb. That's downright revolutionary.

Angel never made a loader to my knowledge, but at one point they made the Intellifeed that was installed in compatible loaders. Essentially, it was like the gun "told" the hopper when to feed. Something similar exists today with RF chips, a wireless version of the Intellifeed. Pretty unnecessary, though, considering the tech behind loaders is reliable enough. You've got plenty high end loaders to choose from nowadays.

Angel Air tanks were pretty cool, but the huge regulator assemblies on them were wacky. They attached directly to the gun (or drop forward), so no separate asa was used. I'd say just go with a more current tank company with standard tank regs, like Ninja.

Angel had a mask in the works, but could never get it past the testing & approval stage. Sad, really, cuz they looked cool.

At least Angel apparel is still fairly easy to come by. You can get jersey & pants.

How about an Angel Snap Box? I haven't seen one except for two, one kept by the guy who scored them and the other sold to me!! I do have a Angel Air in the box. Don't use it, just keep it for nostalgia reasons, that and bringing it to the field every once and awhile and all the younger gen asking, what is that?

Here is what the Snap Box looks like.




One-on-One Reball cage. So, far I haven't convinced my son to step inside yet for a little practice. This came from the WDP warehouse in Cali. My friend was working for 6 months on buying out the remaining WDP stock in that warehouse. I got this out of that deal. Ten pallets worth of WDP/Angel goodness.
I might be selling the Angel Air. I just picked up another one today. Once I get it and check it out, I will probably sell mine. From the pics, it already looks like the LCD cover is intact and not broken. I am also working on a deal to buy out the remaining WDP stock from the East Coast Master Tech, and I think he's sitting on like 12 or 15 Air's. I do all of my selling on Ebay, so just keep a watchful eye out.

Yep, I saw that tank as well and was going to throw a bid on it but decided not to. Just picked up 4 more Angel's this week, so I'm good on my spending for the week.

Angel pants are actually really nice. Pbsports.com has alot of their soft goods.

Very recently I picked up an AIR tank with a myth reg. I dont think it was ever on the actual AIR elctro reg, so I am assuming angel just made their own rebranded luxfers like everyone else does. Stop by the angel forums and introduce yourself to the community, as well as ask any wdp related questions in there. Everyone is pretty cool.

Yep, PB is my main place for all things Angel. I've personally known Jay for like 15 years now. Same with Eric and Sean. Plus it doesn't hurt that he's only 20 minutes away. Actually playing with him this weekend, Greg Hastings is going to be here at the local field.
Talked to another ex-Angel tech at the Chicago NPPL, probably never be able to get a hold of a pair of those Eyes. They were being made somewhere in Asia and they were failing as low as 200fps and lower. Taking a hit I mean. Supposed to be rated for 850fps.
