How much longer does the lockdown have to last for you to grow back your signature long locks? Have you ever received hair-care tips from Lasoya?

What are some of your favorite bands?

Any possibility on releasing Etha 2 lowers for the Emek, so new players can upgrade their starter gun into a tournament-capable gun without having to buy a new gun?

If you could go back and rename some of your guns (without confusing anyone obviously) would you? Or does the progression still make sense?

Questions from Facebook:

Sasha Zucker Would you please throw us old LV1 owners a frickin bone and get us a source of replacement solenoids, or at least some sharks with frickin laser beams on their heads?

You've consistently advocated for today's current marker technology given where the industry and PE has come from. There are obvious technology benefits and step changes that have improved current markers across many dimensions.

But, do you have any nostalgia for the past designs and technology? If so, what and why?

Financial Cost of Paintball

How much do you think the cost of playing paintball prevents the sport from growing? Thanks!

When describing the shot characteristics of the various top of the line markers from PE, what are the differences that you are talking about or not? I'm referring to a PBN interview on the Geo4 where you said, "The Geo4 will feel like an up-to-date Geo3.5 It has very similar proportions, stance, and shot characteristics..." Are there such characteristics that you feel exist in all of your marker lines and if so, are they determined by the design of the marker (spool/poppet/etc)?

Hi, Jack.

What was your favorite marker to design/build and why?

If you are playing speedball what is your marker choice? For rec/woodsball?

Thanks,
-- Mark

Can you tell us more about your collaborations with engineers outside Planet Eclipse? Why have you used them and what have they contributed to PE's products? These are what I know of:
  • John(ironyusa) - Gamma Core
  • Ryan (Lurker) - LV1
  • Deadly Wind - Barrels & hAir Valve(?)

What is your lock down time sink? Aside from trollin the LV2?

Knowing how much PE tests their products, has the pandemic definitively pushed back any future product launches?

What's the next thing Slowiak is going to tutor you on grilling?

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.
