Kinda silly of KEE to only bring Ultra Evil. What if the batch(es) they bring are bad? At least if they bring another kind of paint they can use that instead of Ultra Evil

ultra evil won't be the only paint. none of the paint will be bad. everything will be smooth. people who deserve discounts will get discounts. everything is in balance.

no what is happening is Divisional teams are paying for the free paint pro teams are getting from the deal worked out between NPPL and KEE.

Here's how it works. KEE and Valken are paying to sponsor the event and sell paint there. There are no side deals and no kick backs. KEE and Valken can sell paint for whatever price they want to. The good news for the players is that there will be at least these two companies there selling paint which means people will have a choice.

I WAS able to get ahold of both Valken and KEE with no trouble ( funny I did that before I even brought it here to the nation )


Will , from Valken, and Nina, from KEE, were both very helpfull and insightfull.


Will , the Valken Rep , got back to me almost immediatley. He even forwarded me the team sponsorship information and application. Thanks Will !


Nina, from KEE referred me to the Empire package deal or to my local KEE distributor ( which knew nothing about it except for the same Empire package ).


Please remember that there are hundreds of teams, stores, and tournements that are contacting these people on an every day basis. ALL of them are looking for a discount or sponsorship.

I suggest if you are from a team you draft a decent letter ( or email ) that explains who you represent, what your questions are , and how they can help you.


BOTH are offering team packages. Valken through Will and your local store and KEE through a deal with Empire.


I cannot give the prices I was quoted ( not right to kiss and tell ) , but I will tell you that either deal could potentailly save OUR team a great deal of money !

well what it sounded like to me about kee, was that the only way to get a discounted price from 55/case is to buy empire gear if you do not already have it, which is a win win situation for them.

as far as valken, i guess we have to keep our hopes up that they bring a cheaper, decent paint or else we're going to pay up the ***. and how are we supposed to be get a deal through our local stores for valken, if it's tournament paint only?

........Is this your first tournament?

Do you have a home field?
Do you have a good working relationship with your home field?

Your home field owner, or whoever is in charge of ordering/accounts calls up valken and kee and says pretty much this
-"hey I have this team comming to huntington beach, they are a home team and practice and play here all the time, Is there anything you can do to cut them a break"

There are ways. If you have a good relationship with your field owner, they will do what they can to hook you up.

Negative. Been playing tournaments since 06-07. But I have never dealt with paint being this much of a problem... Guess I'll talk to my local field/store. Thanks

I could not have said that better ! Sponsors consider it a plus to know that you are affiliated with a distributor.

Being a "National" team means being a part of the paintball community which you represent.This means going to several pro shops and building working relationships with each of them. People get to know a team real fast that buys 14 cases a week !

This type pf marketing has not only saved our team plenty our money at home , but helped us to establish ourselves as one of the leading teams in our area.

We also participate in chartiy functions, and hold clinics for new players !

If you bump into a Pro player, just say "You're Welcome" they will understand.

I think it is funny that you think all pro players get everything for free...better yet, they are getting if free on your dollar which makes it that much better...

I can only think of a "few" pro teams that get a full ride...others still have to pay their way, it might be at a discounted cost from what you pay, but hey they are pro players...I am pretty sure they have busted their hump to get where they are at now, unlike you who sits back and cries about prices, and not getting free stuff..

Most people still don't understand that there are not too many great sponsorship deals out there like there used to be...
