Starting at the 2008 Chicago PSP Open, there will now be a semi-pro class for players. This is a classification not a division. This was basically done because the NXL was reduced down to 12 teams from 16. By doing this, PSP has given no name, teamless pros a chance to play and prevent sand-bagging.
Kee Action Sports and Mark Contois have launched a paintball co2 tank safety initiative awareness program. Mark Contois’ wife was killed by a co2 tank in 2004 and has teamed up with Kee Action Sports to inform others of the dangers that co2 tanks used in paintball.
It’s a short article explaining the situation but to sum it up: Dude’s wife died because some kid didn’t install an anti-siphon tube in his co2 tank correctly so he’s trying to let people know that only professionals should be doing installs on co2 tanks.
Since Kee Action Sports has teamed up with Mr. Contois, they have offered to do the tank modifications but for a modest fee. Good job Kee, partnering up with this guy so that that yall could make money. Seriously, it’s a pretty good idea from a business perspective.
Addictive paintball is a new internet magazine that reports on anything paintball related in Latin America. The title is somewhat misleading, it’s in english but the entire magazine is in spanish. If I were fluent in spanish then maybe I could give a better review of this online magazine but I’m not so I can’t.
Anyways, the design of the site/magazine is mediocre. To go from page to page, you have to click on a link for each page of the magazine, 1-53. Even just browsing through the damn thing gets annoying. They need to learn how to make it like a real magazine. IE – be able to turn the pages like in the catalogue on empire’s site. That way it’s much more user friendly.
The magazine seems like it’ll have your usual paintball magazine info such as tourney coverage, gun tech, and product reviews. So they’re in the right direction, but they’re still doing it wrong.
From the pictures, it looked like they were having a tourney old school style in the woods with spools and whatever as bunkers but it was 5-man. I found that rather odd. Shitty field but the players have the money to get eg07’s and what not. If they[the players] want to get better, they should stop spending their money and invest it by getting an airball field. Then again I don’t know the whole story for what’s going on down there so…they can do whatever they want, I don’t really care.
