Probably didn't have the price sheet yet and guessed. I went right off my price sheet I got. Just thought I would clarify

I emailed km a week ago about where their new spine feed was. Their answer was that they had a problem with the manufacturer. He told me buy any speed feed i wanted and when his came in he would trade it. However this looks exactly the same. Strange!

Well, there's your answer. The manufacturer is probably selling seconds of whatever KM Spines they had lying around after the un-approved production run. I guess HK bought them up?

You guys can hate on Hk all you want but they are not complete retards they are not going to blatantly rip off km and risk a lawsuit. This is obviously some sort of licensing deal.

Exalt got broke in my gearbag the other day. I might pick up one of these, but I don't know if I can justify spending twice the amount of an Exalt.

KM was not the manufacturer to begin with.

Snakesniper - Do you actually think I took the time to photoshop that picture?

haha no... I thought you may have found it somewhere online.
Still, the assumption I made was a reasonable one, given it looks almost exactly the same as the KM Spine.

No, I have high res artwork that I just zoomed in on. Again, KM didn't even create the spine they just sold it.

So the manufacturer owns the IP patent for the design then?

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.
