Wow...I wonder if they will go the Infamous route and just make their own stuff under the F1 brand. Doubt they'll have their own masks and hoppers but I can see them doing soft goods, pads and pod packs.

Rumor has it they’re coming home to JT in a 6 figure deal.

I was going to say they are probably going to wear Push goggles since the Hormesis model was made.

That is a pretty cool send-off. I know a lot of people give HK ****, but they have always done alright by me.

The JT rumor is a good troll job.

I thought HK's video was absolutely on point and showed how the industry can act when things change and people part ways.

My wonder on this now is, with the Damage soft goods that HK via ANSgear showed, who will fill the Dynasty spot with HK? Will the Damage rumors from earlier in the season come true or will this be another top 8 team joining the HK family?

Realistically there are only 3 massive players in the industry I can think of that could afford Dynasty and 3 smaller ones that could piece meal something HK, Dye or GI outside of that you've got Planet, DLX/SP and Virtue. Planet and DLX have to be out because there's no way they're shooting anything but the Force, I can't see them signing with Dye for anything except maybe loaders and masks but that's probably not something Dye would want. It's got to be either Virtue or GI I would think since they wouldn't be a direct competitor with the Force and Acculock barrels. My heart says full send on the JT deal but we'll see I guess.

This was brought up before in this thread but what about Dynasty using this as a way to field everything through Field1? I am sure that they are going to pick up a mask sponsor but I see them taking all of the vested interests in their holdings and trying to bring more under their umbrella similar in a way to infamous.

You have to ease into something like that. Infamous spent years building out that brand before they turned away from all the other major sponsors they had. You cant build a soft goods and gear business out overnight.

The JT rumor is most likely for just the masks and some soft goods, I'm actually expecting dynasty to have (HOT TAKE) signed with a big time player in athlete apparel (New balance, nike, etc)

I could see New Balance getting involved because of Dave Chaney.

That would be really cool to see paintball used in marketing by New Balance.

Well Carbon is releasing a new mask + Hormesis just did the collab with Push. So there are options there for Mask's + soft goods.

Dynasty to Dye for soft goods would be pretty epic but least likely, although they could potentially be using their loaders.

I would think Virtue is out of the question due to Dynasty's huge relationship with ANSgear.com.

There are definitely options out there and I'm sure I could find out with one text but its more fun to speculate and wait.

I'm thinking GI since that would cover them head to toe including masks and loaders. Virtue/Bunkerkings would also make sense and they can use the ctrl loader.

I feel like the Push and Hormesis Collab was something hinting at a future relationship. Companies just don't put up that type of special items unless the projected sales add up or there is something bigger in the works.

I think the speculation is fun because we get to see who fills the hole in HK's roster and then who picks up Dynasty.

I believe Greenspan has expressed his dislike for GI products in the past

I'm probably in the top percentage of spending on GI's products from an individual's standpoint, and I've expressed plenty of dislike about GI's products in the past lol. Doesn't mean I stop giving them money, and it probably wouldn't stop Ryan from taking theirs either.

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.
