Now all of the teams will have to get new sponsors. I wonder what will happen to the Philadelphia All Americans.
Alright I dont think people understand what is happening.
Everything aside smart parts is essential changing its name to GI Milsim and DLX is going to stay the same.
All pro teams sponsored by smart parts are shooting the luxe so nothing will change for them, even alot of divisional teams are onto the luxe now because smart parts has been winding down operations for a while.
Well, I wouldn't go as far as to say they have been winding down operations for a while in the manner you mean. This all came about the first Monday in September when the bank came in. Some people have known more then others about what has been going on, while there is still a lot in the dark still.
You may seem some of the sponsored teams moving on to this or that company at this point, and that is up to their team. Personally, we are going to remain with the company as we do not feel there is another company worth even approaching at this point. We have enough parts to shoot our SP stuff for many years to come.
By for a while I meant since they layoffs...there is alot of weird stuff going on with the company but hopefully they can continue to back leagues like axbl and psp because thats really what's going to bring paintball into the mainstream.
At this point, they need to focus primarily on keeping the doors open in one form or another. A lot of these rumors saying Smart Parts is going to close this day or that is being perpetuated by people who want to see the company close. Some people think that if Smart Parts closes, Tom Kaye is going to sit up in bed, say eureka and start making e-mags again. Like honestly?
My sales rep knows nothing about the company closing, I will confirm that the company is not selling any SP-1's or Vibes right now, not because they want to move over to .50 cal Sp-1's or Vibes, rather the bank owned the machines and they could not make anymore. Depending on what happens, is when they will start producing more guns, as of right now, NO ONE knows whats going to happen. If someone says otherwise, they are full of poo, simply put.
I'll go back to monitoring this thread, but some of you peoples blind hate amazes me.
