Zach was on Oakland blast, not sure if they played psp or not but Zach quit to help with orders and the shop if I remember correctly.(this may not be true any more as it was a year or so ago that it happened)

Whats so bad about it? I know I'm one of the many who've bought both, and seems a lot already have put $ down on just Insight.
(all be it I'm selling the VCOM, not because I dont like it, more because I dont think I'll reach for it enough to keep)

Well all business terms aside you don't want to introduce a product into an unstable market. The two options were one to release it along side the Vic as the spool only option at a reduced price; which it is. Or two release it a 6 or so months after the vcom is released, just to see if the spool is a hit or not. I would go with two because of all the issues BL has been having with the bolt assembly.

That's what I was thinking. If those were 140s that works out to 270 from a 13/3k. A full revi and a 100rd pod.

lol why? Go get one and enjoy.

Just because Bob Long isnt as big of a company as DYE, PE, or KEE doesnt mean that his products are inferior. He simply specializes in making great guns.

That would have to be one of the lightest setups. Do they make a 3k slp? I'd buy a 13 if I could get a high top rotor and a standard pod out of one. Not as light as a revy, but its my go to.

I don't see why you'd need a 3K slp.. Put a norm one on a 3K PSI tank, and change the burst discs to that similar on a 3K reg.

I really want one of these. Bob Long is on fire with his production of great markers. Keep up the good work. Hopefully when I'm not broke I'll buy one!

Looks like they got rid of the lpr that was on the victory so they could squash down the size of the body and frame

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.
