    I don't have any paintball gear. I have not heard of Tony Hawk. It depends on your definition of Paintball.

    PaintBall is so much fun. I've only played it a few times, but down here in New Zealand we have a lot of forest to play with, and from my little experience outdoor in so much better than indoor.

    I play paintball, well speedball to be exact. I play on a 10 man team and we've got a number of sponsors. Next year we'll be playing the PSP and NPPL Super 7. I actually have a tournament tomorrow in Syracuse.

    Here's our team site!

    One of my teammates owns a paintball shop here in town, R&M Paintball. So I get hooked up with stuff all the time.

    As for the Tony Hawk's of pb... there's Ollie Lang of Dynasty, Todd Martinez of Aftershock. I personally know Rob Cole of Lockout, he's a great guy. Alex and Max Lundquist of NY Xtreme are also great guys. We're sponsored by their company Bunkerking

    I have played paintball once. I got hooked. I need to play again soon. And don't bother asking about my gear, it's almost laughable. Not plastic though, that's a plus.

    Ah yes, I forgot about the gear. Here's what I have...

    WDP Angel IR3 Cut & Carved
    WDP Angel A.I.R
    Cobra IR3 Bolt
    Cobra SS Buttons
    Halo-B
    Smart Parts Freak Kit
    S!TE Stiffi Barrel
    DYE Invision(s) (I've got a couple)
    DYE '03 Core Division Pants
    DYE ATC Cleats
    DYE '03 Core Division gloves
    Redz Gear Bag
    Redz 5+4 pack (I'm a back player)
    various Bunkerking apparel

    there's more too, I just can't remember all of it off the top of my head.

    We just picked up a sponsorship from Empire and Draxxus for next season so a lot of my gear will be different

    Do I play the ball? Oh, do I!

    I've been playing for 11 years, have had several rigs over that time. Also played Semi-Pro Five-Man for the Land Sharks for a while.

    Heck! I've been playing so long I rememebr when Semis were coming in to the sport and "Constant Air" was an actual term - now it's taken for standard (that big bottle of air, instead of little 12-grams).

    My current rig:
    Rip-stop Cami's
    Proteus Headgear with fan and yellow therms
    JT Persuit Gloves
    4-tube Redz pack with JT SpeedPod tubes
    Remote Air 3000psi 115ci bottle (thinking about going 4500/68ci on-gun next year)
    Viewloader 2000 G2 (Gun's too quiet to use a HALO)
    12" DYE Boomstick barrel
    4" JT Custom speedball barrel
    But the real kicker is the gun
    A custom-made low-press "Accuralite" Autococker
    titanium linkages
    Low-Pressed to ~200psi
    Tornado Valve
    DYE "Sticky Grip" 45 Trig Frame
    and only one stock part - the pneumatics block (way, way WAY too much stuff to go into here)
    Oakshore 30mm Ultra Dot Competition scope.

    It's accurate to 10" at 50 meters @ 10 rounds/sec and so damn quiet the only real noise in the 'clink' of the recocking. Took me three years to build - all those custom parts, but woah.

    My preferred park is Challenge Park Xtreme, where's yours?

    See you in the middle.

    I just played on thursday for the 1st time, I was great... a friend has tons of gear.


    I played in a small warehouse, it was 15 meters X 45 meters. I was kinda cool!

    Patrick - Nice setup you've got there, do you play speedball or are you more of a recball type of guy?

    We just played a 5 man tourny today, took first out of 22 teams, and then we reffed the 3 man tourny. It was a LONG day. We met Greg "Red" Hasting of Redz today as well, a super nice guy.

    We play all over, but we tend to play the most at GRC Paintball, which is owned by a GREAT guy Rob Cole. Rob captains the pro team Lockout. We practice with them and Shockwave Canada and some other teams.
