PSP Phoenix Wrap-up

I would have gotten to this sooner but I got sick on my way back from Phoenix and have been laying around the house for the past few days.

Majority of the pics are from walking the field and some are personal pictures. The last two were taken by Dan Jordan of I found those two pictures in one their galleries on the site.

The weather was really nice the entire event. Sunny with a nice breeze every so often. Driving in Phoenix is lame though; 55mph and 65mph speed limits with speed cameras everywhere. Overall, the event wasn’t that bad even though my team had a major disagreement with the refs on field 5.

There weren’t that many vendors but I didn’t really expect there to be. I was expecting an Empire booth; there wasn’t really one, just a tech type of booth. I also expected a Draxxus booth, again none. Planet Eclipse had a small tent. Dye was the only company with a big tent. From what I can remember, the vendors that were there were KM, Guerrilla Air, Derder, HK/PbFasion, Custom Products, Virtue, Planet Eclipse, Dye, Understood, AlienPB, and PbRack.

I stopped off at the KM tent and found out that they have an energy drink; Sizzurp. Right now, they have one flavor but I forgot which one it is but they are working on another flavor. They are also coming out with their own speed feed system called the Spine. I think they said it was going to be priced around $20 – $25. It looked well made.

Before this event, I was not a fan of HK or the HK trend but after meeting Mark Kressin and spending quite a bit of time at the HK tent, I have to say it’s hard not to want to sport HK since Mark is a really cool guy. For sale in the HK tent were some new soft goods made by Laysick. They had pants, packs, and tank covers.

The pack is the first of its kind in the paintball world. It uses magnets to keep the straps on for the pods, has a slot for you APPA id, and squeegee holders and comes in 3+2 and 4+3. The price of the pack was $50. The tank cover is a 2-piece and comes in lemonade, red, and gray. The price of the tank cover was $25. I bought the tank cover in lemonade and one of my teammates bought the pack in 4+3. So after using them for a couple of practices, I’ll put out a review. The pants looked well made and padded. The only color they had at the booth was olive. The official debut of all the Laysick gear will be in April, most likely at Huntington Beach.

Also, I just want to say to whomever it is on Infamous with the hot ass brunette chick…NICE! And that Keely looks fine as hell with blonde hair.

Keely Leaves PSP


This isn’t an easy email to write. After 5 years with PSP, I have decided to move on and pursue other interests.

I wanted to write and say what a great opportunity it has been working in this industry and with people like you. I’m grateful for all the experiences I’ve had and friends I have made along the way. I have truly enjoyed all my time with PSP.

Thank you for answering emails, attending events, and generally supporting PSP over the past years. Feel free to contact me anytime at (removed private email). I wish you all the best going forward as the New Year approaches.

Please direct all future PSP communications to Lane Wright at [email protected].

Happy holidays and thanks for everything!

2008 PSP World Cup Premium Seats

PSP is bringing back their Premium seating for World Cup 2008. The seating is covered platforms that have been raised 10ft in the air and are located on both sides of the NXL scoreboard. Each box has a maximum capacity of 8 seats that are away from spectator coaching. In addition to the shading seating, premium seat ticket holders get an event t-shirt and on Saturday and Sunday, get complimentary beverages and snacks that will be distributed by the PSP girls. Wifi will also be available with these seats.

Another perk of getting these premium seats is that you can stay up to date with NXL scores even if you aren’t in your seat because you can recieve the scores immediately after the match on your cell phone. (I assume it’ll be via text message.) Not only do you get all that was previously mentioned but you also get a back stage pass to the players pit, where you can mingle with the pros and divisional players.

There’s even more of a bonus with the purchase of these premium seating tickets. One, you get special coupons for some of the major vendors. A great way to pick some of the new items for 2009. Two, you get comlimentary bag check-in service. And if you buy two premium seat tickets, you get reserved up-front parking for the whole week.

Individual Tickets cost $295

Private box seating is also available for those big spenders. Private boxes get four extra seats in their box, making it a total of twelve seats total in your private premium box seating. With a private box, you may hang a company sign on it for some extra advertising. Contact Keely Watson at [email protected] for more information or to reserve your private box today.

Tickets may be available on site on a daily basis
Wednesday – Friday – $60 each
Saturday – $75 each
Sunday  – $100 each

Sounds like it’s definitely one-upping the grandstands at NEO
