PSP Phoenix Wrap-up

Posted: 25 Mar 2010 05:11 PM PDT

I would have gotten to this sooner but I got sick on my way back from Phoenix and have been laying around the house for the past few days.

Majority of the pics are from walking the field and some are personal pictures. The last two were taken by Dan Jordan of I found those two pictures in one their galleries on the site.

The weather was really nice the entire event. Sunny with a nice breeze every so often. Driving in Phoenix is lame though; 55mph and 65mph speed limits with speed cameras everywhere. Overall, the event wasn’t that bad even though my team had a major disagreement with the refs on field 4.

There weren’t that many vendors but I didn’t really expect there to be. I was expecting an Empire booth; there wasn’t really one, just a tech type of booth. I also expected a Draxxus booth, again none. Planet Eclipse had a small tent. Dye was the only company with a big tent. From what I can remember, the vendors that were there were KM, Guerrilla Air, Derder, HK/PbFasion, Custom Products, Virtue, Planet Eclipse, Dye, Understood, AlienPB, and PbRack.

I stopped off at the KM tent and found out that they have an energy drink; Sizzurp. Right now, they have one flavor but I forgot which one it is but they are working on another flavor. They are also coming out with their own speed feed system called the Spine. I think they said it was going to be priced around $20 – $25. It looked well made.

Before this event, I was not a fan of HK or the HK trend but after meeting Mark Kressin and spending quite a bit of time at the HK tent, I have to say it’s hard not to want to sport HK since Mark is a really cool guy. For sale in the HK tent were some new soft goods made by Laysick. They had pants, packs, and tank covers.

The pack is the first of its kind in the paintball world. It uses magnets to keep the straps on for the pods, has a slot for you APPA id, and squeegee holders and comes in 3+2 and 4+3. The price of the pack was $50. The tank cover is a 2-piece and comes in lemonade, red, and gray. The price of the tank cover was $25. I bought the tank cover in lemonade and one of my teammates bought the pack in 4+3. So after using them for a couple of practices, I’ll put out a review. The pants looked well made and padded. The only color they had at the booth was olive. The official debut of all the Laysick gear will be in April, most likely at Huntington Beach.

Also, I just want to say to whomever it is on Infamous with the hot ass brunette chick…NICE! And that Keely looks fine as hell with blonde hair.

2010 PSP Chicago Venue

Posted: 13 Mar 2010 10:58 AM PST

PSP Chicago is June 24 – 27, 2010

Somewhere over the past several years, our sport has lost something. Now not entirely, as every once in a while we see a glimmer of it on Saturday afternoons during a struggle to make it to Sunday. There are sparks of it usually seen in the D2/D1 levels, shown with teams who have had to overcome financial burdens, school/work/family/relationship obstacles – all to keep their team together. They live like brothers, fight like brothers, and work together like brothers. An event will come along, where everything they have is put on the line and they trust each other, they go for it, they win…. Or they don't. But you see it then – a glimpse of it. It's called "heart". And somewhere along the bright shiny lights of over hyped venues, television pipe dreams, out-of-industry investments, hefty sponsorships and hired guns – we lost it.

This summer, the PSP is bringing the league back to where it all started. Back to it's roots where teams like Image, the Ironmen and Aftershock showed unbelievable levels of commitment, pride, endurance, spirit and yes, heart. June 24 – 27, 2010 the PSP will be holding the Chicago Open not outside of a large NFL Stadium, not in a tourist-trap or along the beach, but at the original Chicago tournament paintball venue: The Chicago Badlandz.

The event will run in conjunction with Tom Cole's Ultimate Woodsball League. Tom, legendary for his days with Bad Company, has been bringing camo back and running the UWL at paintball parks – in the woods – for two seasons now. While the PSP event will be held in the open space on RaceTo fields, the UWL portion will take place inside the wooded fields on Saturday and Sunday. When was the last time you witnessed or participated in a woodsball event? You may be surprised at how many of your teammates and peers are playing over there. During down time between your games, be sure to make your way into the woods to either revitalize your days of old or experience woodsball for the first time – either way, you're sure to be impressed.

In the past couple of years we've seen companies disappear, we've seen teams fall apart, we've seen leagues fail. But we've also seen players humbly return to their "family" teams after enjoying a paid ride of being a hired gun by the highest bidder. We've seen industry gurus come back to the sport after selling off everything they worked so hard to build, only to start over again fresh and new. We've seen this sport suffer along with every other industry due to the current economic conditions, and yet we've seen survival. We've been reminded of what it is we love about paintball – and it's pretty simple. We love coming together against the toughest teams in the world and battling it out. With the sport's #1 reffing crew, the industry's most seasoned tournament operators and the full support of all the top manufacturers. We love having the paintball magazines and websites document our stories, capture our moments of glory and yes, even our moments of pain.

So this June, lets see who has heart. Who will come purely for the sake of competing against the best teams in the world? Who is dedicated enough to start the weekend full-throttle and see it through to the end? Join Dye, Empire, DXS, Planet Eclipse, RPS, Proto, PbNation, Sup'AirBall, VForce and Virtue in supporting the 2010 PSP Chicago Open at Badlandz Paintball Park. Registration Opens soon at To become a vendor at this event, email For more information on the Ultimate Woodsball League, visit To learn more about the Badlandz Paintball Field, visit
