Thanks!




Pink paint is the devil. Unless I am the one shooting it. Then it's the best thing ever.






It's me. So, maybe?

I'll kick in $5 to bribe a customs official if that helps.

From a post on the PBRetro Facebook, apparently the snow camo masks and frames are at JT and probably shipping this week.

Did anyone else receive their goggles, and not get the dark camo strap like they were supposed to? I was supposed to get two dark camo straps with my order and did not get any.

I assumed that was the case. I have not seen anything about them not being shipped with our orders. So that could completely be my fault. I just could not help myself and had to ask.

Dark Camo straps are not in yet. I am told they will be really soon though. I have a record of anyone who didn't get theirs and I'll personally be sending those.

Most of these have not shipped yet. So anyone waiting, you won't get tracking until after yours ships. They should ship in the next 7-10 days though. Messaging me won't speed yours up.

JT is shipping these and they just aren’t set up to ship retail. Normally these would’ve been on a couple of skids and out the door to regular customers in minutes.

Instead, it’s 1000+ different small Snow Camo shipments. 750 masks plus a lot of people got just the camo frames after the masks sold out. So it is a crazy amount more work picking orders and manually shipping to people who aren’t their usual customers. So shipping takes time.

To make things worse, they've also agreed to ship all of Fight Club's goggles, all of Team USA's, all of Mutiny's and all of the USA lenses (since those shipped without lenses). That's ~4,000 retail packages or so when they aren't designed to ship retail. Then all of those goggles showed up at the same time.

And this extra work is just so you guys get them a little faster.

Thanks for the update. You are the man! Appreciate you taking the time to get back to us. Thank you for doing all you are doing under the circumstances we are all going through. Also thanks for what you are doing with the JT name also. Must say, these snow goggles look so good.

Got my mask and the extra frame today. Can't thank John enough for all the diligent work amid the mountain of uncertainty, delays and holdups. Super glad I picked one of these bad boys up!

Are you guys getting tracking numbers or are these just showing up on your doorstep? Because uh, I’m getting a little worried.

So these are shipping with the camo frames as well as the complete mask with the white frames? So the Only thing we are waiting on is the dark strap. Or are the Camo frames shipping separate?

The resale market on these flex's and flex's in general is out of control. amazing what X-Factor did making flex's hip again. literally every d5-d3 team has a handful of people rocking flex's now.

bunch of suckers paying over $70 for them though if we're all being honest lmao

People used to make fun of me for only only proflexes the last 18 years, because it's the only mask to fit my big old head, and now I guess I'm agg AF now

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.
