Lol. Normally I don't go all grammar Nazi, and I'm only pointing this out because it made me laugh at the image it put in my mind. But it's defunct. One can never be de-funked. Because the funk never stops

Nope, no dodgy. And you know what happens when you assume, you admit defeat by default. Defunked

The all black version looks so good, wish they were made.

Somebody has to develop these again so that we can all look like star wars characters.

Quote:
This is the specification for eye protective devices, or EPD, to be used in the sport of paintball.
Paintball is a sport that, like all sports, has intrinsic hazards. These hazards include being hit by
paintballs. Protective equipment cannot eliminate all injuries but will substantially reduce their
severity and frequency. Participation in this sport by a player implies acceptance of injury risk. The
goal of protective equipment is to minimize the risk of injury.
Performance requirements are presented and are intended to minimize injury with minimal
impairment of the form and appeal of the sport. This specification is subject to revision as indicated
by subsequent injury statistics.
The impact requirements are designed to give eye and adnexal protection from paintball impacts
likely to be encountered under game conditions. While the EPD also may protect the user from other
potential impacts, such as running into tree branches, there are many conceivable impacts, including
falls from heights, which could exceed the specification and result in eye injury despite the use of the
EPD.
And on speed of the test:

Quote:
7.1.1 The propelling device shall be capable of hurling the
paintballs horizontally as follows: high velocity, 122 +- 6 m/s
(400 +- 20 ft/s), repeatable once per second three times in
succession; normal velocity, 94.5 +- 6 m/s (310 +- 20 ft/s).
Each impact velocity shall be measured and if not within the
tolerance, that impact is not valid.
With that being said, its not only the protection that is measured, you also have to take into account the Field of View the mask offers. They even test the paintballs they will be using for the test and using the drop test from 6 feet onto a concrete floor 3-25 of them out of 100 have to break, any more or less you need to get a new box. The masks are tested at varying temperatures as well as. And because they mean business they take the paintballs they will be using and put them into a climate controlled environment and keep the humidity at 55%

John, I dont know who is "in charge" of Pbnations facebook profile, or if there are many admins..
I think what set fire to the talk about it was just two weeks ago maybe, one of your admins posted that very same picture saying "who wished these hit the market???"
So many noobs (including myself) saw that mask for the first time ever, and there ya go, the legend lives again.
Ive been serious about paintball for only a yr and a half, so obviously the first time i saw this, i sent a email to hustle paintball asking what they were and what the story was.
Just an fyi.
Not blaming anyone, but that post on facebook is definitely what caught my attention.

I would have loved to have a pair. These were suppose to come out near the same time as the profits were just hitting the market, correct? Someone should pick up the design and correct it. I feel that all the rumors are out because they are a sick goggle and everyone wants to be "special" They were just the more extreme style and that is one of the elements that paintball does best.

I have a theory, please can i please speak!

Ok, My theory is this.

John bought the IP to WDP / APS, he's not telling us because he's gauging interest, he's gonna release the mask and bring back the iconic brand. It's gonna be awesome, there's even rumors Ben and Mike (Pump and Msonic) will be modelling the new gear at World Cup, This is an exciting time!

In all seriousness though....

Ty to John for trying to clear the air. It was a decent thing to do even though its kinda one of those topics that immediately grows a mind of its own.

Listen, WDP / APS may be gone, but ya never know when a brand can re-emerge. So here's to hoping and everyone have a great weekend.

I loved pretty much all WDP products but I never understood why you would need a lense covering your ears.

Thank you for posting this. My brother and I were just talking about this goggle not to long ago actually. Do you know if the redesign will take place? I had actually preordered on ansgear when they posted and was extremely upset when they didn't follow through.

Going back, it looks like two tweets and a Facebook post within a couple days of each other. Very much felt like someone was teasing something.
