Angel Paintball closed down - Sad Day

A Sad Day

I have learned that Angel Sports is ceasing operations. I don’t know all the details, not sure it really matters. They will make announcements concerning this shortly. I have been assured by the UK office that parts will be available to service the markers. The details of this arrangement should become clear in the near future, and should be announced by the UK office this week. For the near future, both myself and Bob at Fix My Angel (www.fixmyangel.com) have parts in stock in the US for your customers.

I have some items in stock personally, and will be willing to honor your dealer pricing (or give you an even better deal) where I can on those items. Anyone looking for accessories, or especially clothing, please contact me asap and we’ll see what we can work out. Once these items are gone, I am not sure I can get more.

Because I feel an obligation to the players, teams, and dealers I have worked with, I will continue to monitor and use the jay@angelsports.com email. I have been assured that it will work for some time. If that turns out not to be the case, I have set up a personal email account, pballjay@gmail.com that I will begin to monitor if the angelsports.com email fails or ceases to exist. I will continue to maintain and monitor my mobile number, XXXXXXXX so that any of you that wish to reach me will be able to do so.

Jay

Took Jay's personal cell number out, to save him the misery of a million calls. It's exceptionally sad to see one of the long-standing rocks of the industry close up shop, but fantastic to see that even in the midst of that, there are people associated with the company who are STILL looking out for their customers. Best of luck to everyone at APS, and hopefully this isn't really the end of the line forever!

I was not expecting this.

Angel (WDP) really changed the industry and redefined what a tournament gun should be.

Sad indeed. Once the pinnacle of paintball markers is now now gone. Always a great bunch of guys to deal with as well. Jay I hope things go well for you.

Saw this one coming from a mile away. It's a damn shame but they just didn't seem to have the same presence as Eclipse, Dye, Bob Long, MacDev etc. on the field anymore. A class act to keep up the tech support; hopefully Jay or more people like him will find spots in other top gun manufacturer's camps. The sport needs that kind of product support and loyalty to faithful customers

Sad to see another industry company close their doors.
Not good for anyone.
Good luck to those that are searching for jobs.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
