There are three things I can think of that I haven't heard of in a while. One is the Thin Air companies new marker... at least I think that is the one I am thinking of. It had Bronc involved and there was a thread about it a while ago and the thread has disappeared and I have no idea whatever became of them. The other is the strike back pack loader that was tube fed and had a promo video up here a while back. Last I heard was they were bought out by valk and nver heard a peep from them since and it has been about a year now. And lastly, what is up with the new pinokio loader? Will there ever be one at this rate?

I believe the Thin air marker will be a while considering its a prototype when we saw it last. The backpack, I have no idea. And as for the Pinokio F1, I heard that there isn't much time until its a thing, but I'm not sure

One of the ones I remember was the company posing pics of a prototype gun, that was all raw metal and stuff. They said they were going to put a camera in the feedneck, it would have two microswitches and be aimed at being as fast as possible. I have no idea how that didn't work out for them.

I'm also wondering if the Angel Eyes design will maybe be released by another company or something... It looked great. :(

that dual micro switch camera in the feedneck gun was a joke... they tried to market it as a "its so fast its banned in every tournament league" gun.... doesnt seem like a smart move on their part... i also think peachie was involved with them, i.e. girlpaintballer


i also jsut watched that strike loader ad video again... such a bad ad... i think less of valken now because of that ad....

It had Bronc involved and there was a thread about it a while ago and the thread has disappeared and I have no idea whatever became of them.

according to their facebook page, Bronc and Ydna are working on funding so they can launch it. I was really interested in that marker, their claims about it having electronics never seen before in a paintball gun aswell has describing the drivetrain as a two stage spool crossed with an inline disconnected poppet and the fact that they based it off the 4B kit makes it seem like something we have never seen before. I hope it comes out, I would buy one unless its insanely overpriced.

he was talking about the video for the strike loader, they used bad quality real firearm sounds and had a laptop on the field.

That was a horrible video, but I still really wanted one. Does that make me a bad person..... the answer is yes, probably.

Ah, I was on the exact site and filled the info out for a pre order about what seems like a year or so ago. They are supposed to be available world wide in 2012. They still have about a month left to make that happen I suppose. lol
