Looks like they probably used the same CAD files when/if they pitched this to T2.

HOLY **** NO ONE HAS OFFICIALLY CALLED IT A RIPPER OR TWISTER OR ANYTHING OF THAT NATURE FROM HK.

Why is everyone saying all this **** about it being a "fake ripper" when no one has used that name for it at all.

Yeah, I like it way better than the stock Luxe X/ Ice body!

All Luxes (1.0-X) look pretty much the same to me, they look ok, but this is way better!

They could have made the lines a little bit cleaner though...

Everyone copies everyone dude. But to just throw a name out there and say " ER MA GAWD THEY ARE RELEASING A TWISTER" when no one from HK has said that is stupid. Its not that far off typical BL milling style that they own.

The difference is the the twister has been out and established for a long time, this definitely feels like theyare jocking the twister hype

Committed Paintball got the rights to use the Eaton style twister milling. HK rights to the marq series thus the ripper milling. What’s the difference? They’re both profiting from a design neither company created.

Everyone is so god damn negative. Can’t we just be happy Private Label markers are making a comeback

Happy that PL is back? Yes
Mad at HK? No. Nothing against them personally
Calling this a ripper a joke? Yes. That’s the problem. Ripper milling is meant to be aggressive and radical. Look at the ripper cockers and angels and gen 1 timmies and the ripper victory. If this is called a ripper it’s a joke to the name.

That's not right.

Boston has been doing Twister milling for well over 20 years.

Bob Long used to work with Jim Eaton who created the original Ripper milling and Ripper milling for several later guns.

Inception does have permission from Eaton to use the Ripper name and Eaton had input on Inception's Ripper milling.

I have never heard that HK has permission to use it or has even spoken to Eaton about it.

I'm not talking about ID. I never said HK has permission from Eaton. I said HK owns the rights to the Marq series thus the ripper milling, that bob used on markers, regardless of him working with Eaton. So it allows them to mimic the ripper style milling. I said this to counter the folks saying they ripped off the twister milling.


You’re right as I was mistaken I though the Eaton ripper came out before the original Boston twister.

I think we agree then that HK never got permission from Eaton for the Ripper name/milling.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the ripper vic was not an Eaton ripper. BLAST just used the riper name for it. The Ripper intimidators were Eaton rippers though.

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.
