Eric Crandall recently purchased Bob Long Technologies (also called BLAST Paintball) from Bob Long.


Is this a conflict of interest with Dynasty’s current gun sponsor: Planet Eclipse?

I have worked in an advisory role with Dynasty, which I am removing myself from to avoid a conflict of interest. Dynasty are a true professional Paintball team and will be conducting themselves as professionals. Dynasty is under contract with Planet Eclipse through the end of the 2016 season. Traditionally after World Cup they look at the next years sponsorships. We have already been in discussion with Planet Eclipse about my involvement with BLAST and what this means to Dynasty going forward. Actually, maybe Planet Eclipse can give you a better answer to this question? Can you ask Ledz or Jacko from Planet direct?

After World Cup, Dynasty and Planet Eclipse will sit down to talk more about the future. Until then our focus for Dynasty, as it is for all of our teams, is to ‘Win World Cup’…

This question was an interesting one. So 2017 may see a change in dynasty gun sponsor.

For anyone that doesn't know, Eric Crandall has been Dynasty's Agent for some years.

You know, like in Jerry Maguire. But without the cursing.

And if Eclipse lose Dynasty, you never know who they looking at to replace them.....

Can you explain for those kinda outsiders?
ANS as one of the largest retailers of paintball goods in the market have bankrolled the accelerated expansion of HK including taking other people's products, reproducing them and marketing them under the HK brand, such as the Jason Wheeler 'Pro Mat' and the strapless pack (the moral of that story being: secure your product with a patent before putting it to market).

However, in this case they appear not to be involved at present.
