I'm so glad you guys brought back Dyecam. It's one of my favorite patterns.

Looks great. People were waiting for this one.

Will we be able to get replacement ears that match, down the road? We all want matching replacement on wear parts (grips, ears, straps)

Where is the Dye Cam? I have been waiting for a camo mask from someone other an a GI brand.

I didn't want olive.

I'll pass until we have a real camo mask.

$190 for a mask......

Dye's pricing has been their biggest problem.

I can get 2 grillz for the price of this mask. What about this mask makes it DOUBLE the price of other masks?

The print on it? The dye logo?

News flash: you aren't Nike of the paintball world, and even then, their pricing isn't 200% of the competition's.

I don't care for green and most of my jerseys tend to be red.... Also not fond of looking like Christmas Guess I'll hold out hope for them to make a nice gray version sometime soon. Till then I'll keep rocking the flexes like I have for a decade.

I've been waiting for this one! I've really enjoyed my black/green i5, but I definitely prefer something more "woodsy"...lol.

I agree that dye gear is relatively high in price. But you have to keep in mind that the grillz have been around for years.

I dig the camo though... I like green

Thought this doesn't look like the Dyecam of past it's a really nicely done mask. Honestly for $190 it's not a bad deal IMHO. Generally Dye stuff is way overpriced but i5's stand alone, cover my whole head now, and are the most comfortable. Waiting for my preorder to come in.

I actually like this a lot. Looks clean and sharp. Fits in my climate's bush colors too. Been finding that my i5's get more wearing time than my Vios.

Grillz never even got close to costing this much.

Regardless I've been waiting for this pattern to come out, I'll wait until after pre-order though

It costs them about $25 to manufacture it. $190 is a complete rip off.

Dyecam is not a hot camo. Frankly I dislike the pattern and dont see how its the most sought after color. One color you need to bring back is the Leopard print from 08' on the i4s. You need to bring out some Core pants to match. Thats what people want not this Dyecam. Trust me people have missed that print considering it was over 9-10 yrs ago it was made. Make it again, it will sell trust me as a consumer. I still have 2 of the original i4 Leopards. People still love them when they see them, especially girls LOL

If not Leopard then do some new colors like Teal, Purple and maybe some Pink with White accents. Step it up Dye cause your colors are seeming pretty plain compared to the other companies. Way behind the mark

Grillz have been out for 10+ years and they weren't $100 back then....

DYE spends a considerable more on R&D and engineering than any other name in the game. MSRP comes from those factors along with inventory production.

Take the Virtue Spire or Empire Z2 for example both were $250 new, now what do they cost?.....


Show me a name in the sport that is as big as DYE, has the size of their product line and have been around as long as they have...


I guess you could buy 2 boxters or 1 BMW M6..... its your preference with same logic

This is an issue that the manufacturer has to try and balance. I couldn't disagree with you more. Leopard print? No way in h3ll am I buying it. Teal's Pink's and purple's... Nope. not buying that either. More DyeCam for me please

Perfect logic.

Does this mask fit like the i4 or is it slightly larger?

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.
