Tiberius Arms Released "First Strike" - A True Paintball Sniper Round

From Tiberius Arms -

Paintball's First Sniper Round

Utilizing a combination of aerodynamic shape and fin stabilization technology, First Strike Projectiles maintain their velocity longer. The result is 50% greater range and unrivaled accuracy. Finally players have an alternative to accuracy by volume or backspin gimmicks that simply change trajectory. Become one of the first true paintball snipers with first strike. First Strike conversion kits are available for all Tiberius Arms markers.

Test conducted by firing 5 paintballs and 5 First Strike Projectiles from the same marker at the same velocity (300fps) from a bench mount at a 45 degree angle

Max Range of a standard paintball - 337 feet
Max Range of First Strike Projectile: 510 feet

Test conducted by firing 15 standard paintballs and 15 first strike projectiles from the same marker, on a bench mount, at the same velocity (290fps) on an indoor range at 100 feet.

Virtue is developing a new Personal Sponsorship Program (click for the application).

We want to sponsor up to 10 non-pro paintball players as part of a new future sponsorship program that highlights knowledgable, helpful paintball players. This program is -only- available for non-pro players and is designed to give something back to 10 awesome paintball players who go above and beyond in their desire to help other players and promote the sport of paintball. If you are the right match please fill out the application, or if you know someone who should apply, please refer them!

This is a real sponsorship program on par to what we offer many pro players, not just a "discount" offer.

The players we select for this program will have the opportunity to be featured in future Virtue press releases, ads and/or videos. If you are interested, please fill out the following application by clicking this link.

Ultimate Woodsball League - Woodsball Paintball League

Ultimate Woodsball Paintball League

We have started the UWL to create a venue for paintball teams to compete in the woods. The league is designed for scenario teams, old school 10 man teams, and anyone who wants to play paintball the way it was meant to be played. We at the UWL would like you to take a look at what we have planed for the 09 season. Please provide us with feedback and suggestions that will help make the UWL fun and competitive for everyone.

As you look around the site you'll find out why our unique format takes the best parts of tournament play and brings them to a woods/scenario environment. Never before has there been a way to track and rank your skills and abilities against players from all over the world. The UWL changes all that - bringing competitive paintball back to the format and location it's always belonged.

USPL Register and get a Pro Player help your team

Divisional 7-man teams, here's your chance to own a pro for the weekend!  Each team registered in Division 3, 2 and 1 7-man for the West Coast Open will get to select one US Paintball League Pro Player to coach them for the July 24 – 26 event. The Pro player cannot play with you of course, but they will spend one hour walking the fields with your team and discuss game plans on Thursday. Your pro will also be available, as time allows, to help your team throughout the weekend.

How it works:
  1. Each Divisional 7-man team that registers for the West Coast Open and pays in full, will get to select the US Paintball League Pro player of their choice.
  2. Each pro player will only be available for one team, and will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.  So if you're the first team to register and pay in full, you are guaranteed to get the pro of your choice!  If you register and pay in full last, you won't have much say in which pro will help you throughout the weekend.  Register early and it really could make a difference in how well your team performs in the West Coast Open!
The next event of the US Paintball League's 2009 season will be at the world-famous SC Village in Southern California July 24 – 26.  Registration is now open at www.USPaintballLeague.com.  For more information on how to enter a team or become a sponsor, call (714) 858 1923 or emailinfo@uspaintballleague.com.

Vicious Ego9 Paintball Guns 09 Ego Vego

Vicious Ego9 Paintball Guns
Vicious Ego9

Only 25 made of most of the VEGO9s this season!

Vicious Egos are the hottest paintball guns for the past few years. Despite only costing the same as the stock Ego $1250, these Limited Edition Paintball Guns hold their value really well and come in very pretty colors such as the Cyan with White Vicious Ego9 pictured above. These guns seem to hold their resale value alot more than the typical stock egos and also perform extremely well.

It's really hard to find these being resold due to the fact that everyone falls in love with the paintball guns once they receive them. Most people will only sell these because they are picking up a newer Vicious Ego.

We definitely recommend everyone to try a vicious ego because we know they will not be disappointed. Our friends at DSSPaintball have really been on top of their game in choosing color schemes ever since their first batch of Vicous Egos Came out.

Overall on size, warranty, ease of use, amount of options, appearance, and field usage, we give these guns a 9/10 mostly because we have never found the perfect gun. The price tag on these as well as other Egos is quite steep which is the only real limiting factor. Look for one Used or Brand New depending on your budget and you will not be disappointed. Pick up your Vicious Eclipse Ego while you can find one!

US Paintball League's West Coast Open July 24 - 26, 2009

US Paintball League's West Coast Open July 24 - 26, 2009
Save up to $350 off team entry today!
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA - May 5, 2009 - The US Paintball League's next stop will be at the world famous SC Village in Corona, California for the West Coast Open July 24 - 26, 2009.

This Southern California event is the result of merging two originally scheduled events; the June Bay City Open event with the August West Coast Open. The July 24 - 26 date is late enough to avoid scheduling conflicts such as Father's Day, Graduations and the 4th of July; yet early enough to allow kids to compete before having to return to school. This will also allow teams ample time to save up money and get some great practices in at their local fields prior to the event.

To ensure the level of professionalism and competition that comes along with a US Paintball League event is maintained, the league will be bringing in their very own NPPL turf to lay down as the playing surface for each field. NPPL PRO Refs and Rules will be in full effect and the Tradeshow will without a doubt satisfy all your mid-season paintball shopping needs. Paint will be available for purchase from the paint manufacturers on-site.

The West Coast Open will offer 7 man and 5 man play across the following divisions:
Professional 7 man
Division 1 7man
Division 2 7man
Division 3 7man
Division 3 5man

Summer Savings!
Pay for your team entry during the month of May and you can save $350! The US Paintball League will be rewarding early birds with a discount of up to $350 off full entry for teams who pay in May or up to $175 off for teams who pay in June.
