Congrats to Tim and everyone over at Reddotpaintball; a great organization by a great group of people. I hope to see this system flourish in the future and have no worries that it will. They take pride in their products/company and only produce quality goods.

I have both played and reffed an event using these bunkers. They are great I play on. As a ref I really like the fact that they stay clean! Saves us time, and makes calls a lot easier!

Interesting. It looks like they absorb a ton of the impact, to limit the breaks. Only issue I see is they look like they are not as solid. It may just be a bad angle or poor perception. I just worry a solid stream of paint would essentially "move" the bunker and then the player trying to use it for cover would get hit.

Love the idea, especially for storage.

If you go to minute 37 on the video you will see the bunkers getting hit in the 4th quarter. Still no paint on the bunkers and in 3 years we have never had a bunker moved by a steady stream of paint to eliminate a player. When you see how fast these fill up you will know why. The air flow is 133 cubic feet per minute.

This is a step back in technology, SupAir had this idea years ago! Like in the late 90s. Doubling the amount of parts to put away and account for at the end of the day, not to mention having to charge 40 batteries after each day.

Brad we are new owners and using construction and consultation from originals. We really first set out to buy a set three years back but could not find them. When we finally did the owner at the time wanted to move on to new projects. We contacted one of the originals and we began putting the bunkers through paces at our own field. We have been making some technology improvements and here we are. We are very proud of the product and want field owners to keep money in their pockets.

Genius idea. Wish your company the best. With technology in guns changing from year to year it was only a matter of time before bunkers began to do the same!

You can embed the video onto the post. I can send you the code if you get me a link.

Ive played on these bunkers for a couple of seasons as well as worked as a ref tearing down setting up and cleaning. These things are amazing. Paint just bounces right off and they are so easy and fast to setup its unbelievable.

I am not 100% sure on your question and may be worth a phone call to us. 509-967-3030. Ask for Tim or Harley. The fan sits inside a fan box. The fan box sits inside the bunker. So there is no heavy moisture that gets in to the fan area. If it is raining there can be some very small amount of moisture that gets pulled through the fan and blows inside the bunker. However at 130+ cubic feet of air moving through the bunker every minute the moisture is quickly dispersed and dried.


Again, any fields wanting to try a demonstration bunker are welcome to ask us and we can discuss how that program works.

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.
