Paint - Ridiculous?!?!

Called KEE today. Being it is tournament paint only, they are charging $55/Case for Ultra Evil and KEE is not carrying ANY other paint at the tournament... the only way to get a discount is if you're wearing empire gear.

Anyone else find it ridiculous that we are paying $55/Case for paint?

she told me that if you wear empire, you get a discount on paint prices. not sure how much.

and i'm sure there will be other paint dealers, but as of now kee is the only brand that nppl is showing as a paint sponsor for the event.

I know its expensive for paint. We had to pay it last year, but if you have ever shot Ultra Evil that stuff is amazing. But i also did recieve an email that Valken has stepped on for sponsor for NPPL and im sure they will have paint there too. I dont know about DXS, last i heard is they are only doing PSP events.

and if you think about it, KEE is an east coast based company, They have to transport truckloads of cases across the entire country, Valkin also an east coast based comapny has to do the same thing. People complaining about 10 more $ a case is a little rediculous and the reason why many paint companies have already failed.

As far as I know, Procaps doesn't support/sponsor the NPPL in any way.

Draxxus will not be there.

As of right now, it's 55/case for ultra and i haven't been able to get ahold of Valken, but they will be there for sure as well. maybe they will be 60/case

Kee and Valken will both be selling paint at the Surf City Open.

There has been no public release of paint prices anywhere as of yet. I anticipate that you will see one soon.

There is contact info for both KEE and Valken in the press releases on nppl.com . I would strongly suggest that teams call or email to find out what brands and prices will be available.

If teams are sponsored by either company, go through your normal channels for whatever deal you have.

Do any divisional teams really have a true paint sponsor? I don't see how Mike Hinmen can get us 33 a case of Draxxus Silver and Gold at the WCPPL, but NPPL cant? If it really is going to be 55 a case that's pathetic ..

You should call the paint suppliers direct if you have questions about brands and availability. I assume you have not done so.
