Barrel Swabs
Not wishing to stir the pot here but while myself and my father were members of Manchester Lions (circa 1990s), my mum was a machinist making baby stuff, she also had access to her own sewing machine and made probably the first Barrel Swabs in the UK - sold in Paintball Planet and at tourneys then Steve Bull made his shortly after.

I guess this is the right place to ask this, and maybe something to add on to the list. What does "sup air" mean? Feel stupid asking this if it's really obvious haha

SupAir is one of the makers of inflatable bunkers, it also means any game played in a field made up of these bunkers.
Ahh makes sense now thanks for clearing this up for me! :D

if you go down the lines of we now play on supair field in tournaments, then you can also go down the lines of hyperball fields of the original tournaments (or the big plastic tubes iv heard them called when people first see them).

If you like a bit of history, check out the 2016 paintfest video featuring a bit of the original hyperball and cpps bringing sup-air onto the original hyperball spot at npf (they have don't so for the last couple of years)
