  1. In Topic: Moati Resigned from National Action Sports/ Spec Ops

    09 July 2011 - 04:51 PM

    Well reading Mo's last post,it sounds as if he parted on good terms. That's a plus. Also sounds like he has a new paintball related business getting ready to start.

    I'm sure he has taken Special Ops as far as he could. I wouldn't really jump to conclusions of how the new company will handel things. Look at it from this point of view:

    When Smart Parts left, paintball lost a lot. Then they re-emerged as GoG. Their whole business has taken a 180*. They are basically just catering to the entry level players. I have a whole different out look on them now. It was really a change for the better in my opinion.

    Perhaps maybe MO is taking this route as well. He has a good name amongst the paintball community. So expect a return with something different and maybe some of the same.

  2. In Topic: SP1 Project

    Still moving along very slow. I'm waiting on another SP1 to arrive. I use this gun very often. SO I really don't want it gone till I have a back up. These and the VIBE/ENVY are great little guns to have fun with. Just not sure on the hydropattern. Should I go multi cam or make a partner for the MIA/POW gun and use the Barb Wire pattern. So hard to make this choice.

    I've really gone as far as I can,so all that is left is hydro. No need for a blackheart board (YET!!!!!!!!!!!!)

  3. In Topic: POW/MIA Vibe finally finished

    18 June 2011 - 10:28 AM

    There is one more item to have custom made,I'll order that next week. I also have one correction to make and that will be taken care of on Monday. Thanks for the comments. I can't wait to play with this.

  4. In Topic: Guru pod stand

    07 June 2011 - 07:47 PM

    It's just that simple. You really have to be an idiot not to be able to put this together without instructions.

    This rack is made of a sturdy plastic. The stands are milled.

    I like that this item can break down and be stowed away. We stow them in our carry bag that my Mom made. Nice Multi Cam 1000 D Cordura.

    As you can see it is very simple. Just break down the pod carrier and slide it into the bag. Put into your field bag or carry seprate from your other gear.

    Very simple to close and carry. We used velcro to seal the end:

    Once sealed,just carry away:

    So here we are at the final installment of this review.

    Today I get a UPS delivery from GURU. Final replacement for my stands. Yea I know it took a while,but things happen. Machining issues,Major events,selling items to paintballers (which is a chore for any paintball dealer to do),having to fill bigger orders then mine.

    Well to be honest the wait was worth it !!!! Today I received my final pod holders,but I also received the 24 pod connector. That's right a 24 pod connector. Now I can keep my two pod holders together instead of seperate. This has made the PIT CREW VERY HAPPY!!!!

    Now all the pods can be in one place for the Pit Crew to load. Since I use 100rnd pods,this is perfect,because I can have two cases of paint on stand by. So reloading is going to be faster now. Drop empties in the box while the pre loaded pods are being put into the empty slots of my vest.

    So pictures are worth a thousand words. These pictures show that not only will these work well with a Scenario team, but also with a Speedball team. No more stacking pods. It's just grab and go. Fast reload with a Paintball Jug/Caddy type unit.

    Very Easy to lift and move around:

    So if you have a few of these for your team,regardless of which set up you have,they will benefit the player or team.

    I consider these items to be an important part of my team. We use whatever helps us out to make refit faster.

    So this is a very simple item to put together. It takes about 30 secs if not less.

    Let's unwrap it and lay it out:

    They don't look pretty,but who cares,they are straight and join up perfect.
