Exclamation New World Cup Paintball Gear - Virtue, Planet Eclipse, Empire, PUSH, Carbon and more!

So I am not always very good at planning. I went to World Cup with with a bag packed at exactly 50 pounds. This left me no room to buy anything and bring it home! Thankfully, PUSH was selling the first of their new gear bags at World Cup. I picked one up and filled it as full as possible so I could bring some of the newest and coolest paintball gear on the planet home to show you guys.

The NXL World Cup this year was simply fantastic. So many vendors killed it. Valken had a surprise new loader and lightweight pants. Empire had new EVS colors, the new Axe, Vanquish bolt and lightweight pants. GI had new Grills and new strapless packs. Tippmann had their new TMC mag fed gun. Carbon Paintball made an impressive debut with their ultra high end pants, packs, jerseys, padding and bags. Raza was on site with their full range of clothing. Exalt had their new marker bags and padded gun sleeves.

PUSH showed off an amazing collection of bags and their upcoming goggle. Virtue was the talk of the show with the Spire III and Ascend goggles. Planet Eclipse had new CSR fades, new lightweight pants and dealers even got to see the new Etha 2. Dye's new M2 has wireless charging and Dye also had the full range of i5's with and without the new eVoke system. Inception had all of their new Autococker parts and their new barrels. Anthrax had their awesome jersey range including the popular Team USA jersey.

And that wasn't the half of it! Now, I couldn't take it ALL with me, but I did get some of the highlights of the show.

I legitimately didn't have a plan for getting everything home until I picked up the PUSH bag. It worked perfectly and I was able to fit a lot in it.

Really wish I could've gone to cup this year. I live in Orlando, but something else always comes up. Maybe next year.

Or you are really good at planning and just wanted an excuse for a new gearbag.

How do you like the Push gearbag? I checked them out at cup and it may be my next purchase.

Thats an impressive bag... I have a PE backpack that came with the package deal and would bet that push bag would make me a little happier.

As a gear geek this video has me seriously considering going to World Cup next year probably drag a couple friends to play... can anyone compete in the non divisional tournaments like the 2v2? Like, is there a divisional requirement?

Question on that carbon padded top - what's the padding like around the collar bone? Is there padding from the top of the collar bone to maybe 4 inches below? I have a pacemaker there, which can more than withstand a paintball impact, but it feels less than pleasant to take a hit there. I currently use a valken padded shirt, but the L/XL is super bulky on me, and the S/M would be too tight

The M2 fade is sweet. If I don't score another free, second hand gearbag, that PUSH backpack will be just perfect.

I'm kinda meh for the Axe 2.0 I thought Empire should have at least gone the way of the Pro with the extended foregrip. It looks too much like a mini, imo.

Push is going to ruin my wallet. The medium roller "seems" like enough, but it also seems about the same size as the duffel bag so aside from wheels I'm not sure what I'll be gaining from the roller... that and there's the large roller available asnwell.

Also thanks for the video John - that banzai splash on the wall kept distracting me though.

I would be shocked if this is the last piece of PUSH gear I get as well too. I have my eye on the goggle especially but a larger roller bag is not out of the question at all.

Maybe. Here, I took a photo of it flipped inside out so you could see where the padding is.

Find the time. It's all manner of a good time.

I want one of their larger bags as well. I have an aging Empire one that has been great, but I could use a bag with more pockets and such. Plus, I want to be prepared for the day it dies.

I can't be the only eye candy in the video. Here's a quick bonus pic of it:

Thanks John

awesome stoked for some of these products this year, however i too think the axe 2.0 kinda looks a lot like the miniGS... at least it has a 2 piece barrel not to take anything away from the miniGS its a great marker my lady uses it.

nice vid. Excellent haul. I'm debating picking up a 2nd bag and foregoing the tote parade I roll to the field with.

Side note. Hope that everything is good with your son.

ReplyNews Ups


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.
