What's one brand you'd like to see return?

I've recently returned after an extended absence. It's crazy how many companies are no more. If there was a brand you could see return, what would it be? Even though I feel Luxe fills this role now, I think it would be awesome to see Angel return. Those were THE markers to have when I grew up around paintball.

Vents would be cool to see come. I'd lobbied Scott after they bought Vents out back in the late 90's but they shut down that idea harder than hard. Simon made the push bringing the name back with the Avatar/E-Vent/E-Flex, and now that's all but gone again.

It would be cool to see what an Angel would look like today. Same with AKA’s Viking and Excalibur. If they kept the heavy body on the aka guns but smoothed out the areas where you hold the gun to make it more ergonomically friendly, I’d be happy with that direction.

Angel would definitely be on that list. Loved my A1 when I had it.

Really more than anything would be the private label stuff that we saw with Infamous, and XSV with the attitude and colors. Private label team markers were really cool and a lot of the milling was interesting.

Just for nostalgia goggles though I'd love to see a WGP Karnivor back in mass production.

I’m with you Noa.

Even though I like Spool Valve Markers more I’d really like to see what either WDP or AKALMP could make today. Both companies were ahead of their time so to speak and I believe they both have the potential to put out something cool that would be different from what is available now.

You had me at Karnivore, Blackrain.

Charlie, a modern SB Angel would be cool. I really just want to see a modern closed bolt offering more then anything.

A modern Excalibur would be interesting lol...

I always wanted an Excalibur but they were way out of my price range until now, but even now they still can sell for a pretty high price lol.

Hard to pick just one. 2005-2009 were the best years and nearly everyone had something great to offer. That is, until they sold out and became trash. If I could pick just one, FEP. They're like a cooler shocker that had alot of potential. I would like the return of E Vents as previously stated, but most of all, I'd like all brands back to not being bought out and having a solid selection of jerseys, parts, guns, etc.
