"Supported by" and "Sponsored By" mean two different things. PunkWorks only sponsor is TechPB. PunkWorks as an entity prefers to remain impartial by never profiting from favorable (or unfavorable) testing results. Sometimes input and support from the industry is required for cost or availability reasons, and in such cases PunkWorks remains impartial by giving back or giving away any products received that do not have future testing planned. When a company does allow us to use there products, PunkWorks thanks them by making sure it is known that those companies support our testing. Ninja Paintball gave PunkWorks there regulator for this testing. PunkWorks tested the regulator, then gave the reg away as a prize in PunkWorks next test, the Laning Test. This was to remain impartial and can be seen on the PunkWorksPaintball youtube channel.
Guerrilla Air did not give us anything, so they were not cited as supporters. However, you will notice that has changed. That is becuase (through whatever means) our test has come to the attention of Dan Colby at GA. Yesterday, Dan contacted Bryce about his regulators performance. He said the regulator we tested was defective, and that he would send us a new one to test. Also, Sonney Lopez of LA Hitman fame, talked to Kitty (of British fame) about wanting to get the new G2 myth into our hands for testing. This is why GA was added this morning as supporting PunkWorks.
To insure impartiality, GA is welcome to have both there regulators back after we are done. Otherwise, Kitty has offered to give them away on TechPB radio to viewers.
post that. its the full story.
