I hope ans gear is around when the local guys need paint sponsorship at events or need stuff fixed because with all the undercutting they do and all the kids that would rather go online and support them rather then a local business will be stuck writing them emails and getting no answers when all the brick and motor shops start shutting their doors because its not worth selling products.

Ill stick with my ninja tank. If anything ever goes wrong I can call them up and get it taken care of right away. I dont have to worry about getting the run around with the whole oh well you have a X type of reg and Y type of bottle contact X or Y

Whoa whoa, wait just a hot minute here turbo. You mean to tell me that local stores can shut down if I just keep buying online from a store that continues to undercut MAP?

And that right there is the problem. MAP exists solely to protect businesses and make it an even playing field for all retailers. Undercutting MAP puts a strain on local shops and eventually forces them to shut down. People wonder why there aren't more local shops and this is what I tell them every time.

Hope so, but skeptical of that coming to fruition.

True, I am spoiled with acces to Quickshot, PBA and some others, but in general the more support the local stores get, the more stable the hobby/sport will be in that area.

If you notice though....the $119 is just for the bottle. You have to add for every reg....or there's an option that doesn't add anything and says "no thanks, I have my own reg".

ANS just beat em to the punch.
if anything its a great opportunity to help people who need paintball stuff to get their gear. people who are loyal will still buy crossfire, ninja, guerilla, etc. but people new to the sport need help to get started and this tank will do just that.

it adds nothing to get the regular myth though. I would never use anything but a ninja reg though.

I think you guys are misunderstanding MAP policies and/or agreements.

MAP is set by the individual manufactures and not an industry. If one manufacture comes out with one product and they assign a MAP price lower then another manufacture, then there is nothing wrong with it.

Now, it is also not the consumers problem that a online retailer is breaking MAP. That is the manufactures, you can look at different manufactures in different industry's and see levels of success. For example, BOSE has a different type of Online Pricing Policy that works great, but they also enforce it. Most commonly manufactures that have experience in enforcing pricing will tie their policies or agreements to Coop Marketing funds. Another great form on enforcing their agreements/policies is by having direct control over distribution.

I don't get the one year warranty on tanks. So if the tank explodes/cracks after one year, then you are on your own? What's the point of the 5 year hydro then?

These tanks are DOT and TC approved, so they will hold up as-well as other tanks. If they blow up, or cracked, that's most likely user error.

I received mine with a crossfire tank about a week ago. Works great so far. Tank is made by Inocom of Korea, same company that makes tanks for other tank companies.

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.
