NT Question

i noticed that the ul frame on the nt is EXTREMELY thin. thinnest frame ive ever seen. i have a feeling theres gunna be issues with that... Just wondering how it would be covered? cause for the last few years people had to pay for there new frames ( bent , damage , broken..). Does this apply for the nt too?

I would sure hope so if your paying $1550 for a gun Dye had better back it up, as long as your warrenty is still good.

The frame appears to thinner but it is a lot stronger than previous frames. The frame is also reinforced by a aluminum cross member.

NT Frame answer...

The Dye Nt frame is a very solid aluminum frame and it would be almost impossible to break it. If it did happen to break, then dye will replace it for free under warranty for a year, or until probably the end of 2011.

imo, i think the new version of the ul frame, although more thin, feels stronger than the current frame.

either way, im sure dye will back it up under warranty.

so many ppl could argue your stupidity in that statement. and so many could argue with your statement..

i for one argue against it.. if you buy a 1500$ gun.. u should know how to slide.. if you slide like a normal person. u will NEVER bend or break any frame. its morons who dont no how to slide who bend their frames and expect dye to replace it on their own stupidity.

You never know what can happen in paintball. Why would you rather a company not back up their products than back them up? I dont understand.

Accidents happen all the time, I've seen players worse and better than me bend a UL frame. I did on my DM7 a couple of years back, not because I don't know how to slide it was just a mess up. Just because you buy a 1500 dollar gun doesn't mean anything except that you had the money to spend...

and u both furthered my point as to dye doesnt have to replace a frame for free bc you bent it.. they have in the past. bc dye is a great company that does stand behind their products. but remember they DONT HAVE to replace it..

that sounds kinda ignorant of dye to do such a thing

if it is "strong" and "durable" and made of a very solid aluminum that is "impossible to break", then dye should cover the warranty on things like the frame breaking for life...
