Ultimate Paintball Holiday Tips For Parents and Beginners

The holidays are approaching at warp speeds and for some parents that means questions. If you have never played paintball or just don’t know that much about it, it can be difficult to buy gifts for family members. If you are completely clueless as to what to buy for an up and coming paintballer, this is going to be a really quick guide as to what a few of the items are and what to buy.

Tank: The tank is what holds either the CO2 or Compressed Air (you cannot put CO2 in a Compressed air tank) This what propels the paintballs out of the Marker/Gun

Marker/Gun:  Marker is just another term for the paintball gun. This may sound a little confusing but, just think of it for exactly what it does. Marks things with paint.

Hopper: This is what goes on top of most Markers to hold the extra paintballs. Most Hoppers hold around 200 paintballs.

Barrel: This is just the same as any other gun, it is what guides the paintball as it is propelled from the gun.

Harness: We sell harness that go around the waist of the player to hold excess paintballs in pods/tubes.

Pods/tubes: These are accessories that can hold a varying amount of extra paintballs, they are usually stored in a harness and can be quickly opened and poured into hoppers.

Mask: This is one of the most important things that you can buy. There are a myriad of masks to choose from and have a range in prices from around 15.00 to 200.00. The main differences are comfortability, coverage, lens type and bounce (the ability to have a paintball bounce instead of break)

Remote: a remote or coiled remote is something that can help younger players because it is a line that you hook into the end of the gun and runs to the harness where you will be storing your tank. The reason this helps is because it takes the weight from the hands to the body. This is great for younger players who can’t handle the weight of the tank and gun for extended periods of time.

Brands: There are tons of brands that you can choose from for certain items. When it comes to beginners I think the best brands for Markers is going to be Tippmann Paintball. The best brand for accessories and tanks would be 3Skull. For beginners I wouldn’t go with the most expensive or even the best of some items because the player needs to learn how to play before spending a lot of money on the items.

Now, if you just want to buy your friend or family member a package that come with almost everything they need to just go out the next day and play the game then you are in luck. There are packages that have everything needed. If you go to the Ultimate Paintball website there is a whole section for paintball packages. Checkout the Tippmannn 98 Custom and Tippmann Cronus Packages.

If you don’t like those two sets you are welcomed to check out the hundreds of others that we have but, those are definitely the best sets for beginners.

Ultimate Paintball and Azodin Markers

Azodin paintball markers have been steadily increasing in sales an popularity. We have been selling the Kaos and Blitz at increasing rates throughout the last few years. They are some of the better markers in the price range. We get a lot of kids and young adults looking for a beginner or speedball marker, at a lower price than some of the more high end guns.

Azodin has done a great job at creating an affordable and reliable marker, that beginners and intermediates alike will enjoy. Not only, are they great reliable markers but, they are simple to use as well. If something goes wrong with the marker, it is usually easy to fix. Not only is it easy to fix on your own, Azodin has a great customer service/tech team that will help you over the phone with any questions or problems that you might run into with the marker that you have purchased.

As mentioned, they have have great semi auto and electronic markers that come in several styles and price ranges. The markers look great and work even better. I will list a few of the markers that we sell a lot of.

Azodin Kaos Semi-Auto Paintball Marker Gun

Developed with the highest standard in mind, KAOS incorporates the latest technological breakthrough, while providing standard features that are found on $1000 markers. KAOS gives players the competitive edge on the field of battle. Azodin Markers comes with a 30 day warranty.Features:

As mentioned that is the Semi-Auto marker. This has become one of our highest selling semi-auto markers and, at a price of around $90 dollars it has some features that are found on much more expensive guns.  If you are looking for a great semi-auto marker at a very affordable price then this is the way to go. Next:

Azodin Blitz Paintball Marker Gun

The Valve is the heart of every marker. The Board is the soul of every electronic marker. Our second generation Blitz has been designed with a new Heart and Soul.

 

The new High Performance (HP) Valve design offers a new level of air efficiency, accuracy and overall performance. While the perfect combination of Feather Striker System and new HP valve design, Blitz 2911 is not only a smooth shooting marker but also has the accuracy that can only be found in a spool valve marker design.

The “Zen II” Circuit Board has improved its logics and extends the life of most batteries you can find in the market today. Programmed with firing modes for the major circuits, the “Zen II” Circuit Board can easily be modified with an AZ Editor to suit you likings.

Barrel Thread: Interchangeable with Autococker thread barrel Feedneck Thread: Interchangeable with Ion/Impulse thread feedneck Low Pressure Inline Regulator: Standard ASA thread Bottom ASA: Interchangeable with rail or dovetail mount.

This is the electronic marker that has become more and more popular with time as well.

Then we have also slowly been selling more of these:

Azodin Zenith II Electronic Paintball Marker Gun

The ZII is the pinnacle of design and performance for the stack tube blow-back platform.

When the ZII was developed, we focused our efforts on improving its operation and performance. The result was the creation of the Zen OLED board and the ZeRO-D system.

The Zen OLED board is the conscious of the ZII and is the first user programmable board on an Azodin marker. The board features new logic which helps to prolong battery life and decrease voltage requirements.

The ZeRO-D system is the soul of the ZII and threads directly onto the body. The new design improves the durability of the ZeRO Housing and it allows for quicker maintenance of the ZeRO-D System. When paired with the Mass Flow Valve, the ZerRO-D lowers the operating pressure of the ZII.

The ZII showcases Azodin’s next generation of markers and establishes new performance benchmarks for the STBB Platform.

Azodin Z II Features

  • ZEN OLED Board
  • Zero-D System
  • AZ Adjustable Clamping Feedneck
  • AZ Sling Trigger w/ Roller Bearings
  • 3D Milled Body

These are all fine choices for markers, what is great is there are still other models available like the Azodin Kaos D II and ATS. Azodin has released some new colors in the Azodin Zenith II markers and Kaos D IImarkers. Azodin is always trying to make everything bigger, better and bolder.  Check them out!

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).
