my email from powerlyte about the isis!!!

i emaild them saying I HAVE BEEN WAITING A YEAR FOR THIS ISIS,WHEN IS IT COMING!!!!! and they replyed to me with this

"We will not be manufacturing the Isis design. However, the marker design is not dead, it may actually be out very soon. Unfortunately, we cannot give out more information at this time.

Thanks

Powerlyte Sales and Service"

im guessing that means that either they sold the internal idea to another company and have to find another design to use or the isis was just some bs since the begening

Oh man Armyboots isis=ion theory might be actual fact now.....sad

On the other hand, I hope Matt comes in and clears our heads.....hard to believe they actually replied to you and even typed that.


Also what the hell does the first and second sentence mean? Blahhrg

The marker design (the way it operates) that PL created will not be manufactured by PL. They most likely sold it and some other company will be coming out with it in the near future. That is, if this email is legit.

Ah ok. After reading it again I understand it. Now I am thinking it will come i a different body/shell, since the Isis is the hybrid body with a twist.

That is a little different than what I was led to believe, and unbelievably candid for a company under a NDA. I'm not saying it isnt the case, but I'd be rather skeptical unless Paul's name was signed. As for the Isis being the Ion, I doubt it. The Ion is bigger than the Isis is/was.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I am as eager as anyone else for the Isis, and I hope for my friends at Powerlyte's sake that they figure out what is going on, and get it out in some form or another real soon. But with that said, dont hold your breath, dont put off any marker purchases, it will come out when as soon as it can, when it does, you can reassess the situation.

Dan

I'm actually more shocked that PL responded to an e-mail moreso than the news about the Isis, no joke.

Dan, you brought up a great point, why did they even answer him if they had a nda? What, since it seems they sold the design they are able to tell him that? Seems like shens.

I hear the isis and everything about it.

My prediction is that by the time the ISIS comes out it will be totally obsolete. Also remember that they recieved a shipment of Tado boards for their guns. Thoes boards have to be what... 3 software revisions old.

They received boards? Not from me. I only sent them prototypes. The boards never went into production.

I doubt it would be totally obsolete, the technology in this industry does not move along too quick. When was the last time we saw a revolutionary design in the operation of a paintball marker?

I just hope they didn't sell the design rights to smart parts. I hate supporting that company. (And no it doesn't have to do with the whole patent deal. It has to do with their piss poor customer service and lack of quality control)

hahaha. of course, system x took another companies design (again)and then they will hire on all the people to develop the marker and get it to work, and then fire everyone or force them to quit.

that or it sounds like they jus redesigned the overall "look", but kept the initial functional ability of it. so they may have sold the design, or....not?

Well on powerlytes forum website, MattC himself pretty much posted the same comment as the thread starter.

Quote:

We at Powerlyte would like to thank all of you for your support and continued interest in our products. Due to cetain legalities we have not been able to share any information with our customers regarding the Isis.
We are in fact still very restricted to the information that we can release.

At this time we can say that we will not be manufacturing the Isis design ourselves. However, the design itself has not been shelved nor has it been released in any current marker.

We appreciate all of your support and hope to see some of you at the Miami NPPL.

Thanks,

Matt C.
