Can't wait to see what this will bring to the table. Hopefully this will help revive the PL market.

Will you guys also be selling blanks so people can mill true 1 of 1 customs?

I was told at LL6 that they definitely have a price set. All this lead up to whatever that price may be, leads me to believe that it is going to be VERY expensive.

I am thinking the opposite.

I love all these attempted fishing for pricing

Can't wait for Josh and co to release it - then wait for all the "so, what is the price - does anyone know it yet" threads too

I remember early in the thread someone said he should tell everyone on the "inside" a different price so if it got leaked he would know where it came from.

That's the path I'm taking. Don't have much saved at all though.

The problem with pricing has a lot to do with what you want the stores to have. MSRP is often based on how much of a kickback a store gets. Back in the early 2000's a store normally got only 10% on a top end gun. That has changed a good bit now.

That is where the perceived value sometimes really annoys the customers.

We think we are putting quite a bit into this gun: Totally new platform. Quiet. Light. Smooth. Easy to work on. Robust design. Self timing Hall Effect system. Yet what is the value of all of that? I have heard people say it should be $400 to $1100, even though we offer features that most $1500 guns don't have, and an actual new platform. None of the parts are going to be plastic, like on the mid-range guns, and it is being built in the US with US and UK sourced parts (and some Canadian bits also) from long time members of the paintball industry.

So, we really have been enjoying the guessing ourselves. And some might be close. Or not.


We hope to release the prices to the stores in about a month, pending the test of the pre-production guns. Until then, keep guessing.

I got hooked early on. The biggest obstacle for me is not "how much" but "dear, may I".

Can I make one feature request with the board? If you have an auto shutdown feature on the board, the ability to turn that off is REALLY nice for us scenario guys.

Not going to lie... as stupid as it seems, that's one of the main selling features for Virtue boards, for me. It's so frustrating when sneaking to a good spot, popping out and hearing... "clicky clicky clicky clickity!"

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.
