    EMEK, PAL enabled, used once at the GCC - with everything from new apart from the barrel sock, which was lost in the Birmingham mud. £175 posted.

    All Change in the Hot Seat at Gi …..

    Is it a third eye? Or GI's new triangular paintballs?

    Looking for tips on how to get into tournament style paintball

    Yes. Most have been looked after pretty well. Use paypal (always pay the fees) put the purchase on a 0% credit card and you'll have paid it off in a couple of months. Best buy on here at the moment is the CS1 from @KeenDean, while on paintball unite it's the black Ego 11.

    Looking for tips on how to get into tournament style paintball

    I'd avoid the Rize Maxxed - you'll end up selling it to get something better. Have a look through the "For Sale" section on here or on https://paintballunite.com/ There's a chap selling an Ego 11 for £200, and that's a decent marker. If your heart is set on a DYE marker, you can pick up a DM14...

    Looking for tips on how to get into tournament style paintball

    The cost of tournament play depends on how seriously you want to take it. If you want to take it very seriously, it will cost you about 3/4 grand a year and take up pretty much every weekend playing or training. If you want to be more casual, second hand kit (which is still pretty good) should...

    Best footwear? And what happened to Dye ATCs

    I like the boots. You can also get good deals at the Nike Factory Outlets at Leeds, Cheshire Oaks, Manchester etc.

    Best footwear? And what happened to Dye ATCs

    I've had Landsharks in the past, but lately I've been wearing Nike Mercurial - very comfortable and kept my feet dry in two days of appalling weather at the GCC a few weeks back. https://www.sportsdirect.com/nike-mercurial-victory-cr7-df-astro-turf-trainers-mens-261069#colcode=26106902

    Woodland Events - A flash in the pan ? ..... [Poll Test]

    It isn't a flash in the pan - the UKWM has been running for a number of years, along with Tim's ICC events in the US and the other "Classic" events that are run. Woods/Classic events give an alternative to the relentlessness and high burnout rate of supair events, and remind us how we all...

    Has paintball got boring?

    If you want excitement & controversy, just watch me play. I'm not technically proficient, just mental.

    He may be a while - he flew out to the ICC today with the Rushers.

    Exclusive: Interview with Ledz re the weekend's event at Basset's Pole ......

    I like the way you can have a crack against the Pro teams. Manchester Lions - who haven't played for at least 20 years - beat Rushers in their first game. No small amount of skill was involved there.

    P8NT to return?!

    They exceeded the $20k they needed earlier today, so it's happening! I know the idea is to release something you can actually hold, but after the print run is done they should think about a Kindle version.

    Exclusive: Interview with Ledz re the weekend's event at Basset's Pole ......

    I'm glad Ledz had a similar opinion to me about the fields. Nicky has been all over the world to a lot of events, and seen how fields are designed. So I didn't understand why the Woods field was set out so badly....
