Cool Exclusive photos from TAS

Here are the photos that TAS sent to us at GameOn exclusively that we posted on our FB page and shared with other media members. I think only one was posted here so far. I think they may send us more a bit later though as they prepare to launch sales. We will be reviewing when Erik makes a trip back over here and lets us get our hands on it.





















Sorry I'm late to post these.

I'm very intrigued by this marker but please tell me they will be making some sort of cover for the giant hole in the back of the frame. I am assuming it is a micro USB port for communication/charging and it will be no fun trying to clean dirt and paint out of it all the time.

If that's the case, what are the electronics improving on this marker over a traditional one?

Really interested to hear more information about how the electronics work

A paintball regulator piston also responds much faster and over a much shorter distance than car springs.
true, but the minimal changes that would be made shouldn't draw more power than, let's say, an oled? and true, it was the 'stiffness' of the shocks I was referring too, but it all boils down to the same thing. I just wanted to throw out there that there are other possibilities than changing dwell for the automatic system thingy.

Another way could be to have an induced magnetic field in the body and part of the bolt be of a magnetic metal.... but I guess we all will just have to wait and see just how perfect this marker is going to be.

Good eye, yes there is. Now that you said something, it looks more like red metallic paint or plastic than anodized aluminum like the other red parts.

I heard that there are plans to open source the front grip (among other parts) so that users can 3-D print their own custom parts. If you don't like the stock parts, you can literally make your own.

I like the bolt removal, similar to the cromes; but with many more bearings.

Erik is a good friend of someone behind the chrome, this was a homage to it.

I don't remember the name specifically, but I do remember reading that

When they say "hour glass frame" I thought they meant more like an ultralite frame, not a hump on the back of the frame

I remember when this first leaked from the TPB players club years ago. Pro paintball took the images and watermarked them as their own and everything haha

Glad it's finally here, it's been in the making for quite some time now and the specs still impress me. It will be a great marker!

I've been following this for a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time. Nice to see it has finally come to fruition.


Makes me wonder what kind of crazy marker could be had with a colaboration of Lurker and YDNA.


A Zealagon if you will.

Could definitely be pretty awesome, but first we'd have to work on that name.

The marker's looking great! Really looking forward to a glimpse at the electronics

Has a price range been talked about for this? I do not think we need another $1500+ paintball marker.

Supposedly, "More than $1,000 but less than $1,500."

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.
