Topics I've Started

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

21 June 2014 - 07:04 PM

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?

DLX Luxe OLED

11 January 2014 - 06:36 AM

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.
