Nothing being teased. Nothing to read into this. Just letting people know they are never coming out.

I really can't believe that people are still buying into this and it's still an issue. Have you ever seen one on a paintball field? No. Have you ever seen one in a store (not online)? No. Its not released, it never will be released, and I think that if anyone post something about someone making them or that someone bought the rights for it that they should get an instant temp ban for trolling. I have only been on this site for a little over a year and I am already sick of people asking about this damn mask.

A very cool, future-istic looking mask. but a dumb concept. if people want a pair so bad, go with the next best thing i4s. a somewhat similar looking mask

I got to try a pair on at an Angel dealer's stand at the North v South big game over here in the UK back in 2010 and honestly, we're not missing much. They weren't at all comfortable, with a weird strap that sat across your nose and foam pads that sat on your cheeks. Funky looking but that's about it. I was/am a big fan of Angel products, but the Angel Eyes sucked.

A company did take there time. And they are now bankrupt and gone because of it partially (The failure of the angel eye to past testing isn't the sole reason Angel is gone but it was the large straw that broke the camels back). They put a ton of money into Eye goggle, and it failed the safety testing at least twice I believe. My scenario team was sponsored by Angel at the time and we were excited to get them, pre-ordered them and everything from Angel. We were strung along with this excuse and that excuse until finally Angel went kaput. It was quite unfortunate though because while they were our sponsor they took care of us

Thanks for the thread John, Hopefully this eliminates the constant questions I get from people about these things... One can only hope.

As I recall it was the lense that kept failing the ASTM testing. You know, the more important part of the mask.

Look great so people want. It is that simple. The rumors are there just to keep the hope alive. Consider how much hype follows even rumors of new markers.

While we are clearing up rumors regarding Tippmann and Angel...

I know that Tippmann never bought anything from Angel, but I've heard from multiple sources that they acquired the patent or use of the Angel Magno valve design/technology?

Accuracy of information in paintball is always tough, just want to keep things clear!

Thanks,

That patent at last check was still registered to WDP, Ltd. Virtually all the rest of WDP's trove of old patents were transferred from their UK business entities (NPF Ltd and WDP Ltd) to the individual Green brothers around 2008. You can run a search at the USPTO patent database to confirm. Here's the relevant thread from Nov, 2011 when it was announced the company would be shutting down. Relevant discussion starts here: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...0#post73379990

It's possible Tippmann licensed the patent, I suppose, although I doubt it. It's been nearly 2 years since APS wound down their operations, and nothing from Tippmann has been released or announced that would make use of such a licensing arrangement.

I remember Jay letting me try on a pair of these goggles.

They were a neat concept, but as a paintball player who wears glasses, the mask was not comfortable at all while wearing glasses. the cheek pads made it almost impossible to wear glasses, and still see.

I think they would have been a success for the most part just on looks if they could have passed testing. The futuristic looks really got people's attention.

I think the ears, straps an everything else was great about the mask, just not the cheek pads for players that wear glasses.
