The New Tiberius Arms T15 at Ultimate Paintball

Tiberius Arms has a new gun out and everyone seems to be talking about it. The second we get one in, we sell it. So, I figured it was time to look into it and see what the big deal is with this new marker, what is so special about it?

First, let me start this with a little story. Our company went to ION this year and we brought everything we could possibly put on our gigantic trailer. We had almost anything that people could ask for. That is we had everything except the one thing that people asked for the most. The T15. We had a lot of markers set up for people to look at and about 80% of them came up asking for the T15. The problem was that we had received them a day after we left for the trip. I have no doubts in my mind that if we would have brought 10 we would have sold 9/10 of them!

So lets look at the information they give us and then speculate why people are just getting batty for.

This is from the Tiberius website:

“The revolutionary T15 magazine fed paintball marker is the first of its kind offering a true .68 caliber 1 to 1 AR rifle platform. The T15 features a rugged lightweight aluminum body that will withstand the harshest conditions while maintaining optimum maneuverability. Equipped to use our 19/19rd continuous feed magazines or a standard hopper, the T15 features an integrated 13ci/3000psi tank/stock combo.”

Then the bulleted specs or details:
2 Piece Cast Aluminum Construction
Aluminum Quad Rail Handguard
13ci/3000psi Tank/Stock Combo
Low Profile Flip Up Sights
2 Pin Quick Dissemble
Functional Charging Handle
19/19 Continuous Feed First Strike Magazines
Magazine and Hopper Feed
Includes Two Magazines
Packaged in Durable Side Rifle Case

OK! Thats out of the way, now lets get some speculation as to why people are pining for these things.

The consensus that I gathered at ION was “It looks sweet!”. I will try to make a little more sense of that for you. The big selling point (at least what I could tell from talking to people) is that it is a 1 to 1 ratio to a real AR. The scenario and “mil-sim” games are getting very popular so, the more realistic the  better.  This thing looks and feels much like a real AR. If you have never been to one of these events where they are emulating a battle from history, I suggest you try to make it to one. People get dressed up in full military gear, have their own squads and teams that act as an actual unit would in the military. Now bring in a paintball gun that looks and feels as close as possible to a real Assault Rifle and you get people talking.

Next, FIRST STRIKE ROUNDS. These things are growing quickly in popularity. They put regular paintballs to shame. You can put these in a Magazine (ding ding ding! another good thing) and go to town like  (again) this is a real gun. This is where, I personally think, paintball is/should be going. When those original players were out in the woods playing, I think this is what they had in mind. Lets make this fun and make it like we are playing at war.

Now lets step back a step. Magazines. This is another thing that is becoming very popular and Tiberius Arms is one of the greatest companies for magazine fed play. Partner the magazine with the “built-in” tank and I think all of these things are what is bringing the people to this gun.

WE have sold all of them that we have but we will have more @ Ultimate Paintball. Tiberius Arms T15

Ultimate Paintball: Skirmish ION 2014

Ultimate Paintball is mainly an online business but, as of late, we have been making our way to the paintball events across this great nation. We have already went to Living Legends 7, D-Day in Oklahoma and,  Now we are going to what is supposed to be the biggest event of the year. Invasion of Normandy in Pennsylvania is supposed to have thousands of players and visitors and we are bringing our giant trailer and putting up a tent to sell a huge selection of our items.

This is something very new for our company we have never went to an even this large and we have never went to an event that will take this long to drive. There will be 5 people crammed into our truck and we are driving what could be up to 18 hours (depending on stops). To be honest it is going to be an awful drive but, it will all pay off. We get to hang out with a bunch of people that love the sport. Every day of these events we meet new and interesting people that love the sport that we deal with everyday and they all have interesting stories about playing.

Something that is also really great about these events is that we get to hear, in real time, what people think of our company and think about the products that have been released this year and in recent years. This is always a good thing because it prepares us for future events and lets us know what we could possibly add to our, ever-growing, website.  Paintball is a sport that is constantly changing and evolving so, getting this sort of feedback is vital. If you happen to be coming to this event feel free to let us know what you would like to see on the website or even what we should bring to future events, as we plan to show up to even more next year.

What is great about doing well at these events is that we can upgrade the presentation of our company each time we go. We used to have a small trailer with our name on it and now we have a 50 foot trailer that doubles as a store. Please come check us out at this event and show some love for Ultimate Paintball. We try to do as much as much as we can for our customers so you can definitely expect some great deals in our tent and on our trailer.

As for our website we still have some great deals running, remember you can always get free shipping on orders over $99 to the lower 48 states. This is a great deal that really sets us apart from some of our competitors. They claim to have cheaper prices or claim shipping is cheaper until you actually get through the checkout and you are paying $15 or more to get it shipped to you. We also have a deal running right now (7/1/14) with planet eclipse where you will receive the a free gear bag with the purchase of an LV1 or GEO 3.1 

free gear bag revised

Ultimate Paintball – Planet Eclipse Geo 3.1/LV1 Deal

Something amazing has happened! Planet Eclipse has the deal of the century going on. Ok maybe not the century but this is a really awesome deal. They are giving away a free Gear Bag or Classic bag in select colors if, you buy a GEO or an LV1. That is like getting 150.00 with your amazing gun. Lets look at the descriptions for these guns lets start with the  GEO 3.1. You can check  out the gun  click here .  

A little about the GEO 3.1: Smooth, quiet and utterly devastating. The Geo3.1 epitomizes everything that is great about a spool valve single tube paintball marker. That it also offers exceptional efficiency and the trademark Planet Eclipse virtues of bulletproof reliability and ease of maintenance make it a simply unbeatable package. Now in its third generation, the Geo platform has gained huge popularity amongst tournament and woodsball players alike. Speedball players appreciate the way that the very small amount of barrel rise even during ramping allows them to stay on target longer even when firing single-handedly during rapid reloading. And the efficiency giving them the ability to carry enough paint for even the longest of matches. In the woods, the light weight of the Geo3.1 combines with its incredibly quiet sound signature to make it the perfect companion for those extended periods on the field and for taking those shots when you don’t want to give your position away.

If that doesn’t do it for you Planet Eclipse has another amazing gun you can check out called the LV1 the newest and possibly best thing they have made.  They have spent years developing it and fine tuning it. Planet Eclipse may have just created the best gun on the market check out the LV1 by CLICKING HERE

A little about the development on the LV1:  It has been over two years since the launch of the Ego11 (renamed to the Ego-S in 2012) and that time has been used to dissect the Ego, and poppet-valve markers in general, in order to better understand every aspect of their function; to break down their operation into its component elements so that a new system could be designed, one that overcomes all of the shortfalls of the conventional poppet design while retaining all of its strengths. As a result, the Ego LV1 utilizes technology never before seen in a paintball marker in order to transform the way that it shoots and feels, yet still provide the robustness, hassle-free reliability and ease of maintenance that Egos are renowned for.  Read more at the above link.

Now that gun hits the spot, doesn’t it? So, they have 2 of the best guns on the market and they are going to give aways something else that may be the best on the market. If you buy one of those amazing guns you can get you also get some of the greatest gear bags you can get (select colors). These bags have everything you could possible need check them out here: Classic bag  and if that one doesn’t tickle your fancy how about Split Bag . Not only are these bags great for storing your paintball gear but, they are great for any trip that you take. They have tons of space and are very protective of your things. They are also easy to clean; just in the unlikely event that something spills or explodes in your luggage.

Why is Paintball such a Good Team Building Activity?

seven friends in masks and camouflage play paintball in the fres

Paintball is not just for weekend warriors looking for a fun free time activity. Rather, paintball is being used with ever increasing frequency as a means of team building for businesses and other types of organizations. A business, as well as its employees, can enjoy a number of significant benefits when this enjoyable activity is used as a team building experience.

Positive Relationship Development

A business enterprise functions optimally when its employees develop and maintain strong, positive connections between themselves. Another reality, albeit contradictory, is that the workaday environment oftentimes is structured and functions in a manner that actually prevents the development of appropriately strong interconnections between employees. In the end, littering the workplace with inspiration posters about “being part of the team” simply is not enough to enhance positive relationships between employees.

Paintball permits the development of positive, strong connections and relationships between employees. First and foremost, when a group of people who normally work together are placed in an environment in which they can actually enjoy themselves in a more uninhibited manner, interrelationships necessarily transform. In addition, although employees typically are called upon to take a team approach in the workplace, this activity allows them to truly refine cooperative skill sets because of the very nature of the sport.

Strategic and Critical Thinking Enhancement

Business owners and managers list the development of strategic and critical thinking skills to be a major priority within their respective enterprises. In the end, seminars on strategic and critical thinking are capable of informing employees as to what these concepts mean. However, educating individuals is not the same as instilling the skills.

The goals and objectives of paintball necessarily call upon team members to engage in significant and meaningful strategic and critical thinking. Moreover, it requires the fusion of these efforts into a group decision making process — precisely what business owners and managers truly value in this day and age.

Competition Enhances Team Cohesion

A fundamental principle of enterprise success is that a cohesive team is more apt to achieve the underlying goals and objectives of a business enterprise or other type of organization. The problem is that in many ventures, a true sense of cohesion among employees either fails to take hold or, if it does, cannot be maintained for an extended period of time.

Paintball is designed to be a competitive endeavor. Research indicates that competitive activities necessarily enhance the sense of cohesion between individuals working towards a common objective. This type of team cohesion in a competitive arena is seen consistently in professional and college sports. Paintball provides the same sort of setting in which cohesion between team members is imperative to ultimate success. Once established in the paintball arena, the sense of cohesion can carry over into the work environment.

HK Army KLR Paintball Goggle Mask – Black

Now IN STOCK an READY TO SHIP FROM  ULTIMATE PAINTBALL is the brand new HK Army KLR Paintball Goggle Mask – Black!!!  With over 100 years of combined paintball experience, the HK design team has created a goggle system that is both safe and stylish. Composed of a robust blend of thermoplastic elastomer, the design of the KLR facemask protects critical areas of the user, while still promoting supreme breathability and freedom of movement. Featuring three co-molded HDPE inserts, the KLR goggle system can be customized to fit any customer’s aesthetic desires.

BK

The HK Army KLR Goggle is the first to incorporate a lens retention system that is innovative, safe, and interchangeable. The patent-pending PVT Lock system allows the user to change lenses in mere seconds–the days of gouging your mask and lens with a screwdriver before a game is over. Featuring a large, swiveling hinge system, the PVT Lock system enables users to quickly change their lens and overall appearance of their goggle with the flick of a buckle. Offered in a variety of colors and finishes, users can collect and interchange each side of their PVT Lock to create a look that is unique to them. Bonded to the KLR frame is HK’s new 3D foam–featuring tri-layer, variable density foam technology that creates unparalleled comfort. The base layer is high-density SBR memory foam that absorbs face impacts and braces against the goggle frame, followed by open-cell EVA foam that is ultra-soft and conforms to the facial profile of the wearer. These high-tech foams are then laminated in a velvet microfiber liner that both absorbs sweat from the face and insulates against heat entering the ocular cavity of the frame. The KLR Goggle offers a super high-density compressed EVA foam earpiece that is protective and low-profile. The KLR soft-ear protects the outer and inner ear from impact and abrasion, while maintaining a low profile. Featuring a high-resolution microstitched jacquard strap, the KLR is an industry-first in offering microinjected TPR accent patches for users to further customize their on-field look. Coated with anti-slip silicone on the rear of the strap, the KLR strap is guaranteed against fraying and distortion.
