"Man UP" No Padding - RAZA Jerzey : MUST READ. COOL STORY BRO.

Haha this is fantastic, I have been defending my choice to dawn the RAZA Jerzey on Facebook for days now..

Step outside the narrow minded vision of "manning up with no padding" for a quick read.

Im sure when people switched to a full face mask there was resistance similar to this. Dont let narrow minded vision of what is keep you from seeing what could be, or should be.

You had some people get it that paintball is a niche sport and not everyone will understand the war story explaining the cool scar you so proudly earned. Most people after hearing your cool "battle scar" story will never even consider paintball again....

Scenario 1) After days and days of begging, Mommy takes JT to the local field.. hes 11. He sees all those crazy fast paintball guns and the screaming, his eyes light up... Hes not scared hes excited, he cant wait to jump out there. Hes 11 but he knows hes a lifer. He feels more at home walking to the registration booth than he does in his own bed.

Mom walking up to the counter sees the same scenario played out before her, but sees lil JT's eyes light up. She knows that look but has never seen this amount of interest before. She sees she might be in a pickle soon playing the restrictive bad guy for the greater good or her sons well being.

She walks in to sign him in and when doing so this snazzy purple fella comes strolling in the door in his snazzy RAZA Jerzey. He being the ambassador to the sport he is, instantly greets them with a smile and a hello.

They gets to talking about her concerns and worriers, this Greifer can relate as he started at little JT's age. He tells her his story about when he first started the irreplaceable memories and bonds. He also shares the battle wounds and the scars he got from it. Though he wore his battle scars with with pride, this worried the mom. Captivated by the Greifers passion for his own story, she kept listening to him continue.

The Greifer could feel her unrest when he spoke of his battle scars so he laid the point of the story out there. "MaM, I could see how me talking about my battle scars and stories of old bothered you.. I do have to tell you if this is a concern for little JT there is equipment out there that he can wear that will save him from this. When he is ready he can take it off or he might enjoy it enough he might decide to keep it on. The point being since I have worn this jerzey I have not had one bloody welt anywhere there is padding"

LiL JT gets to play that day, and you bet your *** mom ordered him a jerzey.

I will take your flak for being a sissie when I dawn the RAZA Jerzey.
As far as the sissie comment - If you know me, you can guarantee I will welcome the chance to show you on the field how much bearing that statement has.

Remember not everyone comes from a paintball background and not everyone has an idea of what this sport is.

Everyone Digs the bounces besides my opponents, but I dig the SAFETY aspect more.

Thanks RAZA for the fantastic Jerzey!

I don't think anyone really has a problem with jersey padding. Or at least i don't. Although i don't wear padded jerseys, mostly because they're cheaper without em.

I have a Raza jersey with no padding. It's pretty nice. What does that story have to do with padding anyway? Fail.

Whether I use my padded jerseys vs my non-padded ones really just depends on how hot it is.

If it is hot, no jersey just a t-shirt. If its colder, maybe i will put a jersey on but even then my jerseys don't have padding. But that all boils down to me liking the feeling of non-padded more.

The "battle scars" of paintball look like ringworm to pretty much everyone else. I got tired of people asking how I got ringworm so often on my arms, so I bought arm pads. There's nothing wrong with people wearing pads, if it makes you feel better and able to play more aggressive because of it, do it.

They should make a tourney jersey practice t-shirt or wife beater; premium or slimfit.

If any of you think that welts and scars from paintball are "cool" or make you a "man." You've got a long life ahead of you.

I wear a hockey jersey because I think many busy paintball jerseys make it difficult to see if you have been shot.
