Not as Great as We Think

I was at NPPL San Diego today and I must say that last years was way better. There are venders but not all of them. Smart Parts has a tiny both and Proto is not there, Bunker King is not there and I never saw the Halo repair booth.. The only thing cool about this years event is that you are allowed in the pits. Other than that HB was way better. If you went to HB this year there is no reason why you should have to go to this one. You made the cool So-Cal stop.

the only place that you can find proto is in the dye booth, they share 1/2 the booth, not much there though, some cheap jersey, but not much, and if you expect to find bargain price, don't expect to find much at SD NPPL, most of the stuff are internet price or higher.

Understandable, but, this just makes me shift more away from Smart Parts. All of the other top names are there with the exception of them. I needed help with an Impulse and now I cannot get it. I could get help for my Kingman though.

To bad they're the same prices at every other NPPL event and probably any national event as well.

Smart parts never has a booth at nppl. The booth at San Diego is No Limit Paintball, not smart parts. They are a smart parts dealer and have the sp techs there.

Ahhh! I see. That still doesn't thrill me though. I personally wanted to tell someone at Smart Parts to stick my Impulse and Ion up there a-hole.

Smart Parts supports more of the PSP/NXL. If you didn't allready know, WDP owns/runs NPPL. With more of SP Factory teams appearing in Nppl, you should start to see SP at more NPPL event next year. Or so we hope...

I do not belive that WDP owns NPPL, I think that Empire and National have something to do with that. WDP doesn't even have a large a setup as Empire or even K2 have.

Who owns Pure Promotions??? I agree that Nppl is not solely owned by WDP. But look up PP.

wdp has just invested all their effort into the nppl, much like dye and sp did at first, then they realized the psp wasnt making the sales that nppl was so they are starting to help the nppl out as well.

wdp has the league (nppl), smart parts has the team (dynasty).
