I'm curious to see if F1 will break out into other teams at some point or just stay with the Dynasty boys.

I’m curious if AC Dallas will shoot vanquishes as they have been scrapped by empire.

I asked the same question and was told by GI they'd allow them to and by AC they intend to use them.

It's great that PE has the choice of 3 different markers. Love the variety.

This is news to me. I wonder if they will be replacing them.

This is a great write up, I am interested this year to watch what markers are going to be used by PE teams, specifically if any players go to the Geo4 from the CS2.

If you're referring to F1 this was a decision made by choice, and echoes Bob's sentiments in the twilight years of BLAST. It costs a lot of money to put free guns into pro players hands, and the ROI is probably close to non-existent.

Dynasty sponsors the Expendables in Australia, they are the only other F1 Team currently. Know how many guns they got? 7, 1 for each player.

Most pro teams ask for 20-30+ guns, thats how a lot of players get paid.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if Huston Heat gets ~50+ guns throughout the year.

People support what they like and are comfortable with.

The funny thing about your statement - all the major companies are run by paintball players. Some (such as GI) are owned by outside parties, but still run by paintball players (current or past).

PE, which is leading the gun sponsorship category nearly 2 to 1, is owned, operated and lead by paintball players.

Similar story for DYE, DLX and MacDev too.

It's not just F1 that is run by players.

Thou shalt not slander the good name of other player owned companies by mentioning those lawyer scum from DLX and SP in the same sentence.

Nice list, I was going to make some comments on why would teams rather use this marker rather than that marker; but I guess if your a Pro team it has more to do with sponsorship.

On a side note I was hoping more players would try out the Force and the new Clone (or Prime if you will), it would be nice to see some outside Pro feedback.

OLD FEEDBACK!

Why do people do this wanna-be hk thing? I mean hk people dont even play paintball, they just whine and start drama while wearing the ugliest stuff. Seriously you find light blue and pink to be attractive colors for your parents 1500 dollar investment (your gun/marker)? If you want to whine keep it off the field and save it for the internet; O wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO! Haha, if you don't play then don't whine.


Sell me your G6R (and Halo) upgrades/parts, because you wont get anything for them if you sell/trade them with the gun.

You should post your comments anyway. There are a few pros on here but most people don't get a chance to try every gun before they buy. So any kind of input is helpful.

If you divide up the different marker offerings (Planet has three solid choices alone) then there are a fair amount of different guns that will be used on the professional NXL circuit this year.

Planet Eclipse CS2
Planet Eclipse LV 1.6
Planet Eclipse Geo 4
Dye M3+
Dye DSR
DLX Luxe
SP Shocker
F1 Force
MacDev Prime XTS
Empire Vanquish
Empire SYX

I have had very limited field time with the Force, but I just picked up a Prime XTS and I'll make a video with it.

Exactly. I was racking my brain trying to figure out what high end paintball marker companies are run by people who donít play paintball.

Itís not exactly such a lucrative industry that people who donít play would be interested in manufacturing high end markers just to listen to NoobSlayer29 ***** about grip colors on the internet.

Interested to see if empire abandons the vanquish platform and 100% commits to the syx or if they have something new coming.

Or at least used to play. Most of them played competitively.

My understanding is that GI Sportz has discontinued manufacturing the current Vanquish. They might bring back an improved one someday, but they won't be making more of the existing models. AC Dallas is allowed to shoot them because enough stores still have Vanquishes to sell.

Probably should do this for the Mechanical Pro teams as well.
There is probably a motley mix of stuff there, including 5.5pbs Electronic

That's a good idea but a lot of those teams are a mix of Emeks and other guns. If you want to get it started, I'll help check it and get it up on the homepage.

ReplyNews Ups


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.
