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

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.

Planet Eclipse Releases new gun color Titan White for The Etek 4 LT and Etek 4 AM

Etek 4 LT & AM Titan White

Planet Eclipse Etek 4 – Titan White
The Etek has always stood for reliability, performance and value for money. It has always carried the same core values as every other Eclipse marker of exceptional quality, robust and reliable design, simple maintenance and ease of use. The Etek4 is no different. By combining many features and parts found and used within the Ego range, but in a pared-down design, it allows the Etek4 to perform at similar levels, but at a price-point that makes it obtainable by the more cost-conscious player. A true Marker for the Masses. This ‘base’ model features composite parts, used for the very first time on an Eclipse marker. The Feed tube, Eye Covers and Frame are manufactured from Glass Reinforced Nylon [GRN] a very durable material that is both tough and rigid. All other parts of the ETEK3 are manufactured from exactly the same materials with the finishes you will find on the Ego10 and SL range; high grade aluminum and stainless steel coupled with deep cosmetic and industrial hard anodizing.

Etek 4 Features
NEW One-Piece Body – New 3D machining with sleek lines. The Body has an integrated male FRM the same as Ego11 and Geo2 to accept the SL3 Regulator
NEW SL3 Regulator – Internally and performance-wise, the exact same regulator that can be found on the Ego11, CSL and Geo2.1. It allows the Etek4 to run with HP, MP or LP tanks without the need to alter settings and inline regulator adjustments. It has a replaceable and reversible main seal as well as self-purging feature to leave the firing chamber de-gassed after tank removal.
NEW Angled Inline Reg Swivel – Similar to those seen on the Geo2.1 and Ego11, the Etek4 now includes its own angled reg swivel.

NEW 2012 OOPS – The new OOPS combines a low profile, ultra-easy on/off/purge function and front-mounted hose exit. As with all Eclipse markers since 2007 the Etek4 utilizes the T-Slot Rail. The Etek4 will also accept a POPS ASA.

NEW Zick2 Rammer Kit – The incredibly successful Zick2 kit is now to be found as standard on the Etek4. The Etek4 kit utilizes a unique rammer cap to work with the Etek4 rammer housing.
NEW Shaft4 Etek Barrel – Like the full-fat Shaft4 barrel, the Etek4 barrel utilizes a 2-piece, reverse threaded construction with a longer rear control bore for increased efficiency and consistency. The barrel is internally finished identically to the Geo and Ego Shaft4 barrel but features simplified external machining. The rear bore is honed to 0.693” diameter and both front and backs are compatible with Shaft4 Boost Kits and Tips.

Deftek Feed – Offset Feed. The feed is offset to one side by a small amount. This prevents the balls that tumble into the breech from bouncing excessively and causing breaks and chops.
Cure Bolt – Again carried over from the Ego range, the Etek4 now has a Cure bolt as standard, as well as a body-contoured cut at the rear so the bolt blends seamlessly into the marker body. The Cure bolt helps the Etek4 to shoot the most fragile of tournament grade paints without worry of breaks due to the bolt clipping paintballs in the feed stack. The Etek4 will accept Cure3+ and Cure4 upgrade bolts.

Direct Mounted Solenoid – The Etek4 Minifold mounts the ever-faithful SMC solenoid directly to the marker body, directly adjacent to the rammer. There is just a single hose taking the LP air from the LPR to the Minifold where it is filtered for added protection against debris.

Adjustable LPR – With the same LPR found on the Ego11 and CSL, the Etek4 offers precise control of LPR pressure, without the risk of accidental over-pressurization of the solenoid or rammer.
Fully Adjustable Trigger – The Trigger rides in a self-lubricating trigger holder that clips neatly into the frame. This, combined with the magnetic trigger return mechanism, creates a smooth, positive trigger feel. It is adjustable for fore and aft stop as well as magnetic return strength.

Break Beam Sensor System – Using the same components and software as the Ego BBSS system, the Etek4 ensures that the marker excels at preventing chopped balls in the breech. When enabled, the Etek4 will only fire once a ball has loaded into the breech. If the BBSS system sees any kind of fault, the software automatically overrides the system and the marker continues to fire at a greatly reduced rate.

LED Board – 3 tru-color LED indicators. These 3 clever LEDs allow easy programming of all the user definable parameters by greatly simplifying the programming process. The top LED indicates 10s of units, the middle displays 1s and the bottom shows 0.1 increments.
Programmable Firing Modes – Etek4 has user-definable settings for Dwell, Ball-in- Place, Eyes-Off ROF, Capped ROF (un-capped in Semi 1), Debounce, and Firing Mode. As standard the Etek4 has the capability to be set to cover every tourney regulation.

Soft Grips – The Etek4 grips follow the same design as the Geo and Ego grips. Comfortable, slim, grippy and soft.
