You didn't miss it. I haven't released that yet. I honestly didn't want to hear a bunch of second-guessing. Hundreds are being run but significantly short of 1000.

My goal was to make enough that real fans got them and they weren't scooped up by people who were planning to flip them or price gouge. It seems to be working. Some people have bought multiples but 90%+ of the orders are for a single set of goggles.

Plus, I didn't want these to be so rare people were afraid to use them.

Don't worry, after you get shot by some pink paintballs you'll have a permanently pink version

It’s a nice design, good idea John!

Do the colors run all of the way through the rubber material or is it a graphic?

Sorry if that’s already been answered...

A Blue version would look SICK!

It is a graphic. Blue has never been my favorite color but I can see where you are coming from with this. Maybe a RIT dye job?

I would love to see the result.

Thanks! I really appreciate it. The goal was to make enough they wouldn't sell out overnight. They are still moving but there are a fair amount left.

Had a Dye mask for a half a day. Was happy to sell it for a loss.

Fair. I appreciate everyone who has picked one up. Especially you. You know how hard it is to get money out of a former professional paintball player. That's a testament to quality right there!

There's a fair chunk of change that was just pried away from my hands... I can't wait to see what it looks like with the matching frame.

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.
