The Virtue VIO XS marks Virtue’s third rendition of the Virtue VIO. The VIO XS is a rendition or a redesign of the original VIO Contour. The Virtue VIO XS use the same lens, goggle frame, strap and ears that are found of the VIO Contour. So what’s the point? Since the mask isn’t all that different, this will be more of an overview and not a review in the typical sense. If you want…

It’s Back. The Shocker. The Shocker brand has been in paintball, longer than most of you reading this (myself included). The Shocker was one of the guns that started the electronic low-pressure movement in the mid-90s. The Shocker has morphed along the way, from the SFT to the NXT and now SP is brought us the RSX short for resurrection (not to be confused with the Empire Resurrection). First, let’s start with SP Paintball. SP…

www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfV5KT-9r-0 This is a review of the Empire EVS paintball mask, not the Empire EVS HUD. We will, however, be doing an EVS HUD review when it becomes available in November. After waiting nearly six months, the Empire EVS has finally landed! The EVS is an entirely new paintball mask from Empire. Empire’s previous high-end paintball goggle was the Empire E-Flex (which is still in production, but only in black). The E-Flex was really just…

For the past few years, Valken has been the leader in paintball-specific camouflage. The company’s pants can be seen, it seems, at every paintball field and scenario around the globe. They come in many different patterns and styles of woodsball gear. The Tango pants are some of Valken’s newest tactical pants. The Tangos are built for the player who wants extreme durability and the best camouflage patterns. The Tango pants come in three patterns—OCP (Multicam),…

There was one thought that came to mind when I first saw the Etek 5: It looks like an LV1, making the Etek 5 look like an LV1 does two things: it creates brand continuity and allows people who can’t afford an LV1 the chance to pretend they have one. From a distance, it would be very hard to distinguish Planet Eclipse’s Etek 5 from the Ego LV1. In years past, the Eteks were very…

The CS1 is Planet Eclipse biggest leap forward on any platform that the company has ever introduced, yes that counts the LV1. While the LV1’s shot is widely different that previous Egos, they did not change nearly as much as they have from the Geo 3.5 to the CS1. The CS1 is different in almost every single way from it’s predecessors. Eclipse has changed a lot here, there is more difference between the CS1 and…

Since the Axe has been on the market, it has been hands-down among the best mid-level guns. The Axe totally changed the way I look at paintball guns. Before I thought it was most important to get the best performing gun. Now, I look for the best value I can find. The Axe offers just that: great performance at an amazing price. Nothing to date has been able to offer the shot quality this gun does at…
