Thin Air Sports: The Zealot paintball marker

28 July 2014 - 05:16 AM


There are some seriously impressive features in this gun:

Simply put, the computer monitors how the gun is shooting and makes adjustments to the settings on the fly; this ensures the gun is shooting the best it can at every shot. The Zealots multi-sensing system and computer calculate the bolts speed and cycle times, and dual transducers monitor the pressures within the gun, watching the low pressure that moves the bolt and the firing pressure that shoots the ball. The computer uses this data to adjust the settings in real time, shot to shot, to keep the gun shooting optimally regardless how fast youre shooting. It can also make use of this data to alert the user to possible issues affecting the performance of the gun, and in some cases the software will even attempt to compensate for it.

All this is done without the person shooting the gun ever needing to do anything, as a player you dont even have to know that the gun is doing all this.

New Azodin AZ one & two piece Carbon Alluminum Barrels

28 July 2014 - 05:13 AM

From Azodin:

Following the success of our AZ Carbon barrel, Azodin team took a step further to develop the carbon barrel to a new level of competition.

Combining the lightweight of Carbon Fiber and the reliability of Aluminum Alloy, AZ Carbon barrel is now a superb composition of the elements as one. Aluminum core provides smooth and harden surface to fix our customers craving for the shots consistency, as well as the worry free of internal surface damage while cleaning with swabs.

The barrel went through a precise honing process to achieve a shiny finish and features with the Back to Tip alignment for increased accuracy that you can only expect from the higher end barrels.

Azodin goes beyond its limitation once again to offer product at an affordable price without compromising the quality and standard.

The re-engineered barrel porting sequence provides lower shot-spread and quieter sound signature.

Our AZ Two Piece Carbon barrel is also interchangeable with AZ Two Piece Aluminum barrels.

Available in Autococker threads.

14 and 16 lengths
Bore Size .689

Two piece:
14 length
Bore Sizes .687 and .689
Interchangeable with AZ Two Piece Aluminum barrels

Available colors:
Black, Grey, Blue, Green, Red.

14 One Piece 2.86oz/ 81g
16 One Piece 3.21oz/ 91g

When you return from a TechPB hiatus and miss a GREAT threat to chime in on

Dat G6R thread tho... JUST missed it, I'm disgruntled that I couldn't chime in (so this thread is on topic as I am venting... Vehemently, grrr I'm so mad)

Anyways, just like to chime in on that whole efficiency thing you got going there.

I have a G6R, I also got one of those nifty Ninja SL tanks while I was at OKDDay. A 77/45. It is the size of a 68/45 and is amaaaaazing. Anyways...

For the big game at DDay, I had 15 pods on my person.

That's ~2100 paintballs. Add 200 for my hopper and we have ~2300.

After extinguishing all my pods and hopper, as well as 2 other people's pods I managed to shoot ~2600 paintballs out of my G6R without needing to go get more air, in fact I had just a hair under 1k left in the tank.

The field fps limit was 290 and my G6R was shooting 280-290, even when I was surprise chrono'd midgame from a deadbox it was 282, 285, 286.

So you can say he is a liar all you want, that he splices his videos, etc, etc. But from ACTUAL first hand experience, I got damn near his numbers.

Oh and by the way.... I'm baaaaaaaack

HUD for your paintball mask

22 January 2014 - 08:42 AM

Heads Up Display is the name of the game for this topic. It's becoming a reality for many different applications, whether it be the noteworthy Google Glass or some of the more below the radar specs like BMW's mechanic glasses that allows pretty much anyone with common sense and a sense of directional following to fix their own car with the help of 3D imaging overlays.

Now, Oakley has come out with a HUD for Ski/Boarding goggles that you can sync with your mobile device and gives you a HUD that allows you to play music, see your speed, check Facebook statuses and can even locate your friends, all displayable on a heads up display that is the equivalent of viewing a 14" screen from ~5 feet away.

I for one will more than likely be getting the Oakley HUD goggles as I love snowboarding and find it a very, very nifty feature when I go with my family or friends. Moreover not having to fiddle with my phone whilst wearing gloves trying to change songs and what not.

While, yes, they are expensive for now, I'd LOVE to see something like this implemented in high end paintball masks. The JT Proteus was kind of a precursor to this type of technology with the implementation of the integrated communications. What do you all think about this?

Images of a new case were recently leaked and it was assumed the case was for a new Luxe marker. Im not sure who leaked these images or how they got them but now that theyre out I think its important to clarify what is rumor and what is true.

A Luxe with a new OLED board, and several other minor upgrades will be available for purchase soon. There isnt a lot we can do to the Luxe 2.0 to make it better. The changes we made are comparatively small so were not calling it a 2.5 or 3.0, were simply calling it the Luxe OLED.

Weve been working to bring our customers the best marker available and providing the best customer service in the industry. Although the Luxe might be changing, our dedication to Luxe owners has not. Everyone at DLX is dedicated to ensuring everyone who owns a Luxe feels like theyre part of our paintball family. It isnt just about buying a marker; its about joining a winning team. Really, the news isnt that weve made some changes to the Luxe, the news is that were re-dedicating ourselves to every Luxe owner out there, no matter if the marker is a 1.0, 1.5, or 2.0.

I will have the Luxe OLED at Paintball Extravaganza in late February and will make sure the DLX Facebook page has the latest information regarding when the OLED will be available for purchase. There are plans for an upgrade kit for 2.0s in the future, but for the moment we will be focused on the OLED.
We do still currently have 2.0s, and with the price drop we expect to see an increase in demand.

The marker market has become even more competitive over the years with gun manufactures bringing out better and better products. We still believe that the Luxe is the best marker available, but why not make the best marker even better?

OLED Luxes will have an MSRP of $1,500, non OLED 2.0s will have an MSRP of $1,250 while supplies last.
