Planet Eclipse releases their 2014/2015 Soft goods

17 September 2014 - 12:27 PM

It looks like the new sets of gloves, elbow pads, and knee pads are right around the corner from Planet Eclipse.  The obvious difference I can tell on the elbow pads and knee pads is the green mesh they are putting over the foam protection area.  I'm pretty sure one new feature I spot is that you can remove some of the padding in the knee pads - don't think you could do that in last year's model.  What do you think of the green padding?

Local shop had a Geo 3.5 stolen

12 August 2014 - 01:11 PM

Hey guys, my local store just reported on Facebook that the nearby shop was broken into last Friday, and they lost the Geo 3.5 they'd just received and advertised.  There's a decent chance it was paintball players involved in the theft as the crime occurred right in time with an expensive shipment having just come in.


Here's what was stolen:

Empire Axe silver body/blue highlights No SN 
Empire MIni GS Dark Blue /grey NO SN
Etek4 LT HDE Forrest SN# 11080-46486
Geo 3.1 Lime/Silver ( Kryptonice) SN# 13060-28153 
Geo 3.5 Black/Black (Midnight) SN# 14010-30730 
DYE DAM Black/Black SN# 30260000 or 0114310059 
BT TM15 Camon SE


I'm sure it's a "hail mary" pass to find them, but if one of these happens to turn up - especially that 3.1 or 3.5, can you pass the word back on to Paintball Central?



An Ode to Sly

25 June 2014 - 03:39 PM

While I can't quite say,

How I feel either way,

About the guys at Valken,

But I find over time,

That I break into rhyme,

How Sly's acquisition makes me malcon(....-tent).


I'd like pro-merc for myselve,

In years 2010 or 2012,

In online carts ever I could find it,

Redemption or crusade gear,

Is just not the same I fear,

and V-tac performance is bull$#!4.


Does anyone else miss the old Sly soft goods?  I didn't pull the trigger on the front pads or pants back in 2012, and I've regretted it ever since.

Paintball rock for my daughter's birthday

10 June 2014 - 09:11 PM

My middle child is having a birthday soon, and as an annual tradition the local school lets us paint a rock outside for her.  This is what we did for this year.  (There's a large purchase of neon-bright gear coming in my near future, I can tell.)



Azodin KD-II

24 April 2014 - 11:13 AM

At Paintball Extravaganza, Azodin debuted a mechanical marker upgrade to their Kaos-D series to match their Zii line release.  Interesting that it has more colors and options than the Zii line or markers.  I rather like the newer colors and styles, particularly the blue and gray titanium.


New colors are: Aurora (pink and purple), Emerald (Green and silver), Titanium (Blue and Gray), Blue King (Blue and Gold), and Ninja (Black).


Features that are new to the Kaos-D line include a new, lighter trigger and rammer, 45 degree angled macro fitting on reg, two piece barrels, low profile on/off ASA, clamping feedneck (!), updated Zero system, and updated poppet valve.





The KD-II paintball marker is a refinement of its predecessor Kaos-D, bringing the mechanical markers to a new milestone, once again. With the already reliable Stacked tube blowback(STBB) platform and utilizing the revamped Zero-D low-pressure system, KD-II is now even more air

efficient with an operating pressure of 225psi and higher consistency in every shots. The tool-less ZeRO-D system is now directly threaded onto the body for easier maintenance and reliability. KD-II featured with an improved trigger giving user a lighter and softer trigger pulls ever on a mechanical marker, now beware of the addiction rate of fire from a mechanical semi-auto marker. The KD-II also comes with a clamping feedneck to lock any loaders tight in place, a refined 2-piece 14’’ barrel (.689 bore) for greater accuracy, and the air-flow friendly angled regulator collar. The five combination of dust & polised colors offered are: Emerald, Aurora, Titanium, Blue King, and Ninja.
