Coming Soon to Ultimate Paintball SP Shocker RSX Paintball Marker Gun

If you have been a fan of paintball for a while then, you have more than likely heard of the Shocker.  This was THE marker to have back in early and mid 2000′s. This was the killer marker to have. You were somebody if you were using the shocker against peoples other, punier, markers. Then came the day, when they were no longer made. Many people had questions about if/when they would be coming back. Seemingly the answer was never.

Well, the day has come! There is going to be a new and improved shocker. There is going to be a new high end marker on the market and you can get yours at Ultimate Paintball. Be prepared to be WOWED!! Information below this:

SP Shocker RSX Paintball Marker Gun

Spool Valve – Light-weight with a precision engineered skeleton structure, the RSX power plant provides fast bolt action with abundant volume for quiet, consistent low-pressure operation.
OLED Screen – Intuitive menus with easy trigger programming make set-up and adjustment in the staging area quick and easy. Grip back placement provides a heads-up view of the integrated game from a shooting position.
USB Updates – Standard USB connection to the RSX circuit board makes updating the state of the art circuit board with the latest updates as easy as downloading pictures from a smart phone.
Multilingual Display – Paintball is now played worldwide by millions of players, speaking dozens of languages. The RSX has the ability to download new text packs to format the OLED screen to the language of your chooice.
Tool-Free Cleaning – Push-button access unlocks the RSX power plant, which slides out under spring assist for full access to the valve and bolt without tools. The power plant slides back into place and latches automatically with no risk of damaging the body by cross-threading.
Lever Detents – WIth a shallow angle to the bolt, RSX spring-loaded detents prevent double feeding but swing smoothly back from the bolt for low-drag, long-life operation.

The ‘cocker threaded Freak back combines with optional inserts to adjust bore size for optimum performance when weather and paint conditions change. Helical porting keeps the All-American front quiet while dispersing air to reduce turbulence for tack-driving accuracy.
Integrated Regulator – CNC machined from a single alloy billet, the Shocker RSX regulator housing blends seamlessly into the body with fluid lines, for a more compact, lighter marker with fewer possible peak points.
Carry Case – From home to the field, or to the tournament, the Shocker RSX travels in armored style, protected in its included case.

Azodin Blitz 3 Pre-Order @ Ultimate Paintball

Ultimate Paintball is always at the head of the paintball world. We try our hardest to have the best and newest equipment on the market.  We will do everything that we can to make sure that our customers get the best selection at the best prices on the market. If someone is undercutting us they are doing it against some rules, rules that I won’t go into on this particular blog. The point I am trying to make here is that we are here to please the people. If we weren’t then we wouldn’t have made it this long in this highly competitive market.

Whether or not you all know it paintball is not only competitive on the field but it is one of the most competitive markets for the sellers of paintball goods.  We do everything we can to one up the competition. This includes letting our customers get a crack at receiving items as soon as they are released. Everyone pretty much know about pre-orders. The gaming and electronic industries have been doing it for years. I have personally went to wait for game releases at midnight on several occasions. It is part of the culture. Another example would be going and seeing a midnight showing of your favorite superhero movie. You want to be one of the first people to see the next big thing.

Well, we are doing that with the items that we are allowed to with paintball. The latest item we are doing it with is the upcoming Azodin Blitz 3. Azodin has been a company that has grown quick and continues to impress people. With their prices and quality of their markers. For the price you can’t really beat the quality of marker that you get. So, with the release of the newest marker that they are releasing we decided to do a pre-order. The sales have been doing really well. If you are interested you really need to get in on the ground floor with these markers. Now let’s look at the marker.

15924_1_

 

We can assume that this marker will make improvements on the Blitz Evo marker. I will list the stats of the Blitz Evo below. *Remember* this is for the old marker and the 3 should do a great job of upgrading the features of the previous marker.

Azodin Blitz Evo Electronic Paintball Marker Gun

The next evolution of Blitz has arrived, and it has been redesigned with speed in mind. The Azodin Blitz EVO continues the Azodin tradition of feature first markers by introducing several new components.

 

First and foremost is a ball-bearing sling trigger for fluid, flawless fire capability. The beveled edges let your fingers glide effortlessly as they deliver speeds of up to 20 balls per second.

A new low-profile on/off ASA comes standard on the Blitz EVO. Redesigned with safety in mind, the on/off ASA disconnects pressure to the marker, allowing for easy removal of your air system.

The “Zen 3” circuit board includes new modes of fire including updated PSP ramping rates and an all new “full-auto” mode never before offered on the Blitz. Along with tournament lock capabilities and default safety-on, the “Zen 3” circuit board can be modified with our AZ Editor to suit your specific ROF and mode needs.

Our new Rocksteady regulator features a one-piece reg seat with a standard deviation of +/- 5 fps. Break beam eyes prevent ball breaks and the universal “Twist Lock 2” feedneck allows for instant adaptation to any size hopper.

Sniper Rifle for Paintball

paintball sniper

Trying to decide if a sniper paintball rifle is best for you? Here are some ideas to get you started.

AGD Longbow Paintball sniper guns come in a lot of different styles. You can take a look at the AGD Longbow upgrade package. This is a pricey marker but AGD only makes quality guns.

Phantom Style A pump gun, which ranges from cheap to expensive. It allows you to decide what works for your budget.

But it’s not the paintball sniper guns that make the sniper. A sniper is able to sneak in or be undetected until he makes his hit. Then you need to move from that spot un-noticed.

Paintball snipers should not be in groups of players. Snipers are most often found by themselves, they like the lone ranger style of play where the odds are stacked against them.

Paintball Camouflage can be one of the paintball snipers biggest investments. You can go for total body coverage with a Ghille Suit. But this will hinder your movement. The best idea is to break up your silhouette, a paintball players eyes are constantly scanning for a mask shape and color. Try breaking up your mask with a camo head net. Basic BDU camo will work fine.

Remember this point! Put yourself in a place that you can see well, with less movement. The human eye will focus on things that move, if you don’t have to move THEN DON’T! The common mistake is to turn your head or shift your leg. This movement will certainly give away your position. Try to find a mask that allows you to use your peripheral vision. Only move when you want to shoot.

What if you are spotted? Most likely if you are spotted, you will be out manned. Either go out blazing or run away and wait for another opportunity. Usually you can use this to your advantage and draw your enemy into a small ambush you setup. Run away and when you are out of their visual sight, make a quick cut left or right and either back track or wait for them to come find you.

Summary: It’s not the sniper paintball rifle that makes the paintball sniper. It’s the player and the choices you train yourself to make on the field

Paintball Hand Signals 101

Two paintball sport players in prootective uniform and mask aimi

If the enemy is close by and you don’t want to reveal your position by speaking aloud, paintball hand signals are an essential communication system for teams. Unless you’re employing walkie talkies or you’re three feet away from a teammate, a hand signal can go a long way in assisting coordination. Every team should issue their own paintball hand signal system that they’re familiar with. However, basic military signals are usually used as a rule of thumb if a private system has not been engaged. When going into a paintball match, remember to appoint one leader or a couple of squad leaders, depending on how many members are present. Check that everyone understands the numerous hand signals, and instruct teammates to consistently keep an eye out for them.

Regroup

A basic hand signal is the twirling of your pointer finger in a circle in the air. It sets you as the rallying point. Other team members should prepare to move to your position or to follow you from cover. This will make certain that your team remains close and cohesive in moving around the course.

Enemy Spotted

One of the most important paintball hand signals is to call out an enemy. To signify that you have spotted an opposing team member, point to your eyes with your pointer and middle fingers. Then, point specifically at or in the direction of the enemy. This signal will ensure where your team needs to fire or where to watch for movement.

Take Cover

Your team needs to know when to diverge from the established formation and to take cover. A fist in the air should tell your teammates to crouch and lay low. They should take cover wherever possible, whether by crawling or sprinting to the location. Make sure that your flanks and rear are protected.

Stop

A vital part of paintball hand signals is the “stop” motion. An open hand held up in the air indicates that everybody should stop what they’re doing, crouch, and aim in different positions. Also, once a team is stopped, it is easier to give out additional orders and signals.

Move Here, There

Be mindful where you place your teammates. If you want to change directions in where you’re going, hold your pointer and middle fingers together and point in a specific direction. The whole team can move to that area, or you can split members up to precise locations. Differentiate between a team and a person direction change by pointing to a single teammate before signaling. If no one was pointed to before the hand signal, then the entirety of the team should move.

I Do and Don’t Understand

Team members can sometimes have difficulty understanding your orders. Perhaps they’re not fully seeing what you’re motioning. If that’s the case, then it would be helpful to have one or two paintball hand signals that convey these feelings in such circumstances. Putting your pointer and thumb together to form a circle and raising your remaining fingers (the symbol for “okay”) is a common show of understanding. Conversely, an upraised hand tilting from side to side implies that you don’t understand.
