Do you guys have any dealers for your pants in the Saint Louis area or on the other side of the river near the eastern part of STL. Also, love the V1 and signature series.

St Louis, unfortunately not. The best way to get your hands on them would be to go to your local store/field and have them contact us to order you a pair.

Sponsorships you can forward to me dan@xoindustries.ca. Just remember, sponsorships are usually a two way street. Most times a team will be affiliated with a store or field which is why they will get the deal they get. Even pro teams are affiliated with a field/store buying our paint....example, NE Hurricanes and P+L.

Awesome, was it the special edition "buddy" ninja ball....black/purple shell? You guys all need to try that stuff, no one can see it coming.

HAHAHA!! It was Buddy's ninja ball, that stuff was awesome. Me and my teammate Jesse "J Rod" shot it and LOVED it. The minute we walked in Buddy was like check this out, and anytime Buddy is excited its gotta be good. We each bought a case and had a hell of a day.

XO is one of the best and affordable I've shot. I like how it turns into a powdery substance making hits hard to wipe.

Yea I love the V1 but it's really expensive up here in Ontario. It's like $90 for a case and the field is not indoor.
I do not have a signature in fear of the mighty Kittty.

Hell yeah. We practice with spectrum right now and its fine for a practice paint.

One question i have, is do you have any manufacturing plants in the States, and if not, can you give me a general overview of how the paint is shipped/distributed.

Capital Edge Paintball Occasionally has the paint in stock, and Santa Clara Paintball stocks our brands. If you go to your local field or store and request it, they may be able to order you some in.

We only manufacture up in Canada...we are located in Toronto which is about 2 hours east of the ZAP factory and 4 hours west of the Procaps factory in Montreal. We manufacture the paint and load it into trucks which take it to one of our many warehouses strategically located for short transit times throughout the United States. From there we redistribute it by the pallet to customers who order (ie fields and stores).

I love this paintball, I know hogback mountain paintball uses it.Soo much fill and soo hard for people to wipe. When I played with it I used a white jersey and was afraid it wasnt going to come out. No problems washing it out though. Only one complaint was the bagging was done poorly so if you werent careful you were 500 paintballs would burst out the bottom. The field was happy to fix any problems with that nature. Are there any other fields in northern virginia area selling XO? possiably maryland?

i've shot spectrum and it worked well, great ball for playing in the winter. anyways im wondering if you could maybe rate the brittleness of your paint? from 1 to 10, 10 being most brittle and 1 being the strongest. it just gets a little confusing with all of the different paint you guys make

I gotta say I never shot it until I joined Steeel Reserve and now its all I shoot.

Its very consistent and works well in all weather. Plus its a pain to wipe and the fill is nice and bright.

Sorry guys, I thought it would be funny to tell the moderators at TechPB to "fuck off bitches", and I told Kitty "Go ahead and change my sig again you bitch!" and I was banned from the forum

Sorry, we do not sell paint out of the facility to the public, however dealers may pick up their orders.

This isn't really a question at all, but a reason why people should buy XO

Now I'm from Ontario and my brother and I use to own a paint ball field up in the cold north. We contacted many different company's about supplying paint to the field.
XO was the Only ones that we trusted with quality of there paint, Every morning we would empty or van and head out for the hour drive to Toronto and Pick up our orders, fresh off the line. In our 3 years dealing with XO we never had a bad shipment off, Might have 1 broken ball in like 5skids of paint. That is pretty good, The quality control is the best that i have personally seen. The staff was always very friendly to use and when we called and said we would be on our way they would be just stacking the last few boxes for us.

If I ever start up another field, i will be calling Dan up again.

I had been using the V1 for months and it is great paint, never had a problem with it. I just recently started using the Vein, awesome paint, and I love the silver and gold shell.
