I noticed about 3 months when it suddenly disappeared from empires site. If they had something in the works for 2020 it would have been hinted at, at cup or pbe. So I don’t think we will see anything anytime soon as a high end from empire.

probably the same amount who have been shooting the LV platform the past couple seasons? its always been available to the pros.

the Geo 4 on the other-hand will be a completely new offering. it would definitely be someone who was sponsored by PE back when they have IV cores and actually have a preference.

Dynasty owns Field 1 so they have been using the Force for NXL events.

However, for the recent Mechanical events they have all mainly been using EMEKs - as has been said already...

They were for 2019. Fairly confident that they’ll be shooting the new PE mech stuff in 2020.

Sad to hear it, I love a 1.5 and love it, probably my favorite shooting gun I have ever had

Greenspan mainly uses an Emek but also has a Freeflow cocker. They do not play Mech/10man events with their F1's.

Most business start ups typically take between 2 to 3 years on average before they turn an actual profit. I don’t see F1 sponsoring many teams for a while. They can’t afford to turn over 20+ guns for free right now other then to the dynasty guys.

What?? They have new orings? I honestly had no idea. I got other parts though. They have been good about refining them as they go.

Yeah... Nothing wrong with the Adrenalin guns. I am keeping mine. It's one of the few guns I own I am hesitant to loan out. I'd be sad if it got beat up. Maybe I'll even get my case someday.

This is news to me. I wonder if they will be replacing them.
can’t imagine why they’d not grab a new sponsor, maybe because Greg affiliation to gi? I would be giddy at the opportunity to go PE or something after using vanquish and syx models

Thanks! I updated my post.

Unless you want something more concrete than what I put together

I know they are amateur, but I should be able to find out what Brimstone is shooting this weekend. There are usually one or two of them at the field lately.

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.
