    paintball padding, paintball protection

    Paintball protection can assist greatly with the prevention of injury. In this post we’re going to briefly discuss the various protection available to help prevent injury and enhance your paintball game.

    Head

    A paintball mask is designed to protect your face including, ears, eyes, mouth and nose from incoming paintballs, some masks offer full coverage protecting both the back and the top of your head.

    Every moment you spend playing paintball you MUST wear your mask, more paintball injuries occur from the removal of masks than actually playing. This means you as the player need to spend extra time ensuring your mask is perfect for you. For more information on masks check out our "The first piece of paintball kit you should buy" blog post.

    If your mask doesn’t offer full head protection we advise you wear a hat or head wrap not only do these offer extra protection but have added benefits such as preventing fogging. For further information on preventing you mask from fogging check out our "Prevent your mask from fogging" blog post.

  • Paintball Hoppers – What You Need To Know

    paintball hopper, paintball loader

    A paintball hopper (this may also be referred to as a loader) is a device that attaches to your paintball gun. This will store your paint before loading the paint into the firing chamber. If you’re looking to purchase your own hopper here’s a few things to consider.

    Feed Rate

    This is the speed which the hopper can feed the balls into the firing chamber and is measured in balls per second (bps). The feed rate in loaders can vary dependant on the loading mechanism, this can be anything from 4bps to 40bps.

    Mechanisms – The Difference

    There are two types of loading mechanism, gravity fed and electronic.

    Gravity Fed

    gravity fed loader

    Gravity fed hoppers rely solely on gravity to draw the ball into the firing chamber resulting in a low feed rate. A low feed rate often causes paint to jam inside the hopper, although this is easily resolved (shake the hopper to dislodge the paint) it takes time, time which could have been spent firing or aiming.

    These loaders are designed to be used on mechanical markers and should not be used with an electronic marker (for information on the difference between electronic and mechanical markers check out our "Electronic vs Mechanical Markers" blog post).

    Electronic markers have a higher firing rate which typically will exceed the feed rate of a gravity fed hopper. When the firing rate exceeds feed rate this can cause paint to chop.

    These hoppers are cheap, lightweight and quiet – perfect for beginners.

    Shop out our full range of hoppers at https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/paintball-hoppers-loaders.

    Electronic

    Electronic hoppers use battery powered motors which spin to feed paintballs into the chamber. Due to relying on mechanical force as opposed to gravity the paint is fed into the marker at a much quicker rate resulting in faster firing. These hoppers can be used on mechanical and electronical markers.

    As these loaders have a motor they can be a little on the noisy side dependant on whether you purchase a low, mid or high end hopper. The battery can also drain quickly if the hopper doesn’t have sensor.

    These hoppers are a little more expensive but offer quicker feed rates.

    Low End 

    Low end electronic hoppers often have no sensor so the motor will move continuously, this can be fairly noisy. Due to the lack of sensors this will effect battery life meaning you’ll have to frequently repurchase batteries. Cheaper loaders can also be harder to strip if anything goes wrong.

    High End

    High end electronic loaders use sensors so the motor will only move when necessary which will assist with noise and battery life. These loaders are also easier to disassemble.

    It is important to mention that whilst an electronic loaders main selling point is feed rate, with the rate of fire caps in today's games (generally 10bps) this means a cheaper electronic loaders will still feed fast enough.

    Shop out our full range of hoppers at https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/paintball-hoppers-loaders.

    For electronic loaders check out the batteries we stock at https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/batteries.

    Speedfeeds

    speedfeedA speedfeed is an accessory that fits in your hopper lid allowing you to re fill your loader quicker. They offer fast fills and no spills, often halving your loading time. Some speedfeeds also come with an added rain lid.

  • Storing Your Paintball Equipment

    paintball gun, paintball equipment

    The purchasing of paintball equipment is a big investment. When you’re spending hundreds if not thousands on your gear storage is vital for both protection and longevity.

    There are various storage solutions and they vary dependant on your individual requirements. In this post we’ll give you some brief insight and examples of each.

    Paintball Mask/Lens Protection

    Paintball masks can vary from £20-£150+, if your choosing a high end mask its paramount you protect it. Most masks over the £50.00 mark will come with a cloth goggle bag as standard, this will assist with protecting your mask from scratches but there are better alternatives.

    A goggle case will act as a shield protecting your mask from any scratches and dents, with a solid shell as opposed to just cloth. If your mask has an expensive lens you can protect this separately with a lens case, this will protect your lens from scuffs and indents.

    Exalt lens case - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/exalt-lens-case

    Goggle bag - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/hk-army-goggle-bag-3488

    Gun Case

    As your biggest investment it makes sense to protect your paintball gun from any scratches and dents. Gun cases are padded and will cradle your gun maximising protection. Often these will also have loops, clips/compartments for storing barrels, tools and hoppers.

    Dye DM Gun Case - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/dm-gun-case-black

    Backpacks

    A paintball backpack is a must for any serious paintball player. It’s the perfect solution to keeping your paintball tank and gun protected whilst not in use. Paintball backpacks tend to have designated areas for your tank, gun and barrels plus small compartments to hold parts.

    Check out the full range of paintball backpacks we stock at https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/luggage/paintball-backpacks

    Kit Bags

    If you’re looking to safely store all of your equipment in one place, a kit bag is a must. These bags are large and have compartments designed specifically for your paintball gun, tank, mask, paint, pods and mask etc. Due to the sheer size and weight of these bags they often come with roller wheels for easy transport.

  • The Best Paintball Masks For Glasses

    paintball masks for glassesFor glasses wearers is can be difficult to find a paintball mask that’s comfortable and practical to wear. Today we’re going to explore some mask options for the glasses wearing paintball player that provide maximum comfort and optimum protection, we will also look at how to combat fogging.

    The Fit

    We always recommend that players try on various masks to ensure a comfortable fit with suitable protection, after all no two faces are the same. With glasses this is a little more complicated, ideally you will want to look for a paintball mask where the foam is cut on either side where your glasses arms will sit. This will allow some movement and will ease the pressure on your glasses arms.

    When trying on your mask ensure the strap of your mask is up at an angle as opposed to going straight across the back of your head, this will assist with the fit.

    Our suggestions

    JT Proflex - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/paintball-goggles/jt-goggles

    Empire EVS - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/paintball-goggles/empire-goggles

    Fogging Prevention

    There’s nothing more frustrating than a fogged up mask that can limit visibility, plus it’s dangerous too. Players may be tempted to remove their mask so they are able to see, exposing them to the danger of being hit.

    Now there are ways and means to help prevent this, you may want to consider installing a thermal anti-fog lens (check to ensure this will fit your mask) or buy a mask with a thermal lens. Another option is installing a fan to assist with the circulation of air.

    Thermal Lenses - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=thermal+lenses

    Virtue Visor Fan - http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/virtue-stealth-visor-fan-3554

    Some less effective solutions include coatings and anti-fog sprays, these should only be used after confirming they will not damage the integrity of the lens. Ensure ventilation holes on the google lens frames are not covered by scarves etc.

    JT Anti Fog Spray -  https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/jt-anti-fog-spray-2oz

    You can also try and breathe down into the mask ensuring the air flows through the ventilation holes at the bottom.

    Another solution is wearing a headband, not only are these great for added protection but they soak up sweat and prevent moisture from entering the mask. This can be swapped to a hat in those colder months.

  • What You Need To Know About Paintball Barrels

    A paintball barrel is the section at the end of your marker which the paint will discharge from. There are various types of barrels available and some may simply be down to personal preference.

    In this post were going to take a look at what to consider before buying a barrel.

    Length

    You can get numerous barrel lengths, these usually range between 8-20 inches, research has shown that 8inches is the pinnacle for accuracy, therefore anything more won’t increase accuracy. The best barrel length is probably around 14icnhes. You can still use longer barrels of 16-20inches, this may be desirable if you have longer arms.

    Materials

    Barrels are designed to accommodate the player and their needs thus being readily available in various materials. Aluminium is probably the most popular choice, this is lightweight inexpensive and easy to machine, its ideal. Barrels are also available in stainless steel which is heavier in comparison to aluminium. They are also obtainable in carbon fibre, this is the lightest/strongest material however its pretty pricey.

    Kits

    Again there is such a vast selection its paramount you pick a kit to suit your needs. Kits can include various backs and fronts, insert systems or one front and numerous backs. Carbon fibre is probably the most popular choice kit wise, this would provide you with a front and back. These kits give you chance to optimise your barrel dependant on the game you’re playing.

    One or Two?

    When paintballing first came about one piece barrels were the only type available. However it is found two piece barrels improve accuracy. These allow you to choose the barrel back and different barrel lengths for the front, the barrels back pieces are available in a variety of sizes so you can choose which one accommodates the size of paintballs you shoot.

    Bore

    These range from .698 down to .674, the most common size is .689. You want to ensure your barrel is not too tight for the paint, else the gun will break the paintballs. At the same time if the barrel is too large this will be detrimental to accuracy, which means the gun will become inconsistent.

    Recommendations

    Aluminium Freak Insert - The Aluminium Freak Insert is an excellent and highly recommended product. Changes in temperature can cause paintballs to shrink or swell. This is the only barrel of its type that can match paint size by utilizing inter-changeable sized aluminium inserts.

    http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/aluminium-freak-insert

     AA Freak Barrel – This front will give you a flat shot, some range may be lost but accuracy will be increased. The amount of spiral porting drastically reduces the 'pue' of your marker firing, making it harder for your opponent to hear you shooting.

    http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/aa-freak-barrel-front

    Freak Barrel Front - It has been designed with straight line porting which gives a very straight and accurate projection, giving you an advantage over other players. This barrel will give you both a long shot and lob shot.

    http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/freak-barrel-front-4218

    High end barrel options;

    DYE GF Boomstick Barrel - This product offers players a stainless steel, lightweight barrel. Features include a unique, propriety stainless steel insert with a glass fibre outer sleeve

    http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/dye-gf-boomstick-barrel

    DYE Carbon Fibre Boomstick – The stainless steel insert is built from gun drilled surgical grade 303 stainless steel and aircraft grade carbon fibre. Also thanks to the inside bore which is honed to a 6 micron surface finish which gives you the smoothest and straightest barrel on the market.

    http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/dye-carbon-fibre-boomstick-1517

    GOG One Piece Carbon Fibre Freak Barrel – This product unlocks a new level of performance. Freak flexibility and perfect paint to bore sizing is now available with the amazing strength-to-weight ratio of true carbon fibre.

    http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/gog-one-piece-carbon-fiber-freak-barrel-4092

    If you take the hit and purchase an expensive barrel we recommend you purchase a barrel case. These are low in cost but are a life saver with regards to protecting your barrels. http://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/barrels/cases

  • The Different Grades of Paint

    paintballsThere are commonly 3 grades of paint - field/practice, mid-grade and tournament paint. In this post we’re going to give you some brief insight to the differences in the paintball grades and what we recommend.

    Field/Practice Paint

    Field/Practice paint is often harder with a thicker shell and thinner fill. Despite the fill being thin this is still noticeable upon shooting. This paint is commonly less round in shape resulting in a reduction in accuracy, however this is a generalisation and isn’t always the case. As field paint is often tougher and harder (harder to break) this is used on paintball sites and is perfect for practice shooting.

    Our recommendations;

    GI 1 Star - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/gi-sportz-0-68-2000-1-star-paintballs

    HK Army Select - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/hk-army-2000-select-paintballs

    Mid-grade Paint

    Mid-grade paint is manufactured to higher QC standards. Here you will see a thinner and somewhat brittle shell with a slightly thicker paint fill that takes a little more to budge when wiping. The majority of paintball guns will have no issue shooting premium paint however some high pressure markers may slice some of the paint. This paint is ideal for local tournaments and even big games.

    Our recommendations;

    GI 2 Star - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/gi-sportz-0-68-2000-premium-super-peg-paintballs

    DXS Midnight – https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/dxs-midnight

    HK Army Premier - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/hk-army-2000-premier-paintballs

    Tournament Paint

    Tournament paint is the highest grade of paint and it’s reflected in the price. This paint is manufactured to the highest standards to ensure roundness and consistency which assists with accuracy. This paint is brittle and will break easily when shooting, the fill is thicker and highly visible and vivid upon shooting. Ideally this should be used with mid-range to high end marker to ensure the paint doesn’t break inside the barrel.

    Our recommendations;

    HK Army Supreme - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/hk-army-2000-supreme-paintballs

    HK Army Exclusive - https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/hk-army-2000-exclusive-paintballs

    It’s important to remember that storing your paint correctly is essential to the performance and longevity of your paint, for more information check out our “How to store your paintballs” blog post.

  • How to increase the efficiency of your Paintball Gun

    Paintball gun

    Often players claim their paintball gun has lost efficiency or it isn’t as efficient as first presented. In this post we’re going to talk about how to increase the efficiency of you marker and what you might be doing to hinder its performance.

    Hot & Cold Fills

    All paintball guns require a pressure source to propel the paintballs from the barrel, either Co2 or HPA (for more information on the two check out The difference Between CO2 and HPA For Paintball). However filling itself is never really documented and surprisingly this could be a major factor in why your guns performance has deteriorated. Please note the fill we're focusing on today is only applicable to HPA.

    Hot Fill

    A hot fill is where a player walks off the playing field and instantly proceeds to fill his tank. Now when you fill a hot tank with 3000psi it will initially show as being full, however as the bottle cools down this will reveal the true fill of around 2500psi. That’s a 500psi shortfall, this is because hot air has more pressure therefore giving the illusion the tank is full.

    Cold Fill

    A cold fill is a top up. We recommend players fill up their tank, allow this to then drop to 2500psi and wait for the tank to cool. Once the tank is cool go back to the fill station and top up to 3000psi, resulting in a maximum fill.

    We suggest a cold fill every time, this permits a maximum 3000psi fill and with the additional 500psi you should get an extra 2 pods from your gun.

    Ball sizing

    The paintball industry as a general works off 0.68 cal paint, however most paint at a rough measurement in fact measures around 0.684 – 0.686.

    We recommend “ball sizing” which is the measurement of paint. To ball size you will need a paintball insert and measure the paint accordingly.

    If the paintball is too big this will sit on top of insert. If the paint drops through with no issue your almost there but this is a little on the small side. Ideally you’re looking for paint that just travels through the barrel.

    The perfect paint size will result in less air being used to propel the paint through the barrel, assisting with the performance of your gun.

    With regards to inserts we offer various kits that are interchangeable enabling you to adapt to various paintball sizes.

    We recommend;

    Freak Insert Kit - Boremaster -  https://www.bzpaintball.co.uk/freak-insert-kit-boremaster-aluminum.

  • Oliver Lang Retires - Is he the greatest paintball player of all time?

    This week the paintball player often regarded as the best in the world retired from professional paintball, Oliver "Ollie" Lang. Earlier in the week he told pbnation.com:

    "...I'm done playing my friend. On to the next chapter of life, it's thrilling and terrifying at the same time but I feel alive and fully supported to roll into my next phase of human development."

    No paintballer has enjoyed the same level of success as pro phenomenon Oliver Lang. His time at Dynasty has led to a record breaking amount of championship wins and his passion and sheer skill is said to have influenced paintball immeasurably. Lang is also one of the few players to play professional paintball as his only occupation and make a comfortable living doing so.

    In the infancy of his career Lang began playing local tournaments and establishing paintball connections, determined to compete at the highest level he began getting recognition from recognised players and at the tender age of 17 was playing for a professional paintball team - the SC Ironmen.

    In 2002 Lang joined the year old San Diego Dynasty team alongside his childhood friends. Despite being the new kids on the block he and his team took first place in the pro division and at just 22, Lang was awarded the International Paintball Player of the Year award.

    "Paintball has been my ultimate teacher, I am forever grateful for the opportunities is has given me. The places I have been and the people I have met are invaluable. It has taught me thy dreams do come true and your infinite possibilities lay before you to accept the challenge and triumph" – Oliver Lang

    It’s believed Lang innovated paintball, encompassing styles years ahead of his time and highlighting necessary skills such as the importance of running and shooting. Furthermore it’s said he pioneered the in your face aggression in paintball as demonstrated in 2002 at the LA Open Semi Finals when fields were much bigger – he continued to perfect this technique over the next decade.

    This clip from Cereal Killerz by Monkey with a Gun gives a great insight into the man at the time:

    Paintballer Matt Marshall has stated that Lang “wins so frequently, plays our sport so instinctually, and gobbles up life on the road at such a frantic and furious pace”

    In 2006 Lang left Dynasty to re-join the Ironmen returning them to winning form and made paintball history when Dye paid him to do so with a hefty pay out of $100,000. During his time with Ironmen they won back to back World Cups in 2007 and 2008.

    Once his contract with DYE was up, In 2011, Lang re-joined Dynasty once more and that year they went on to win the first PSP event of 2011, defeating the reigning champions Russian Legion. Planet Eclipse made this documentary about the team and his return:

    The winning streak didn’t stop there as he continued his dream year and led Dynasty to a first place finish in Paris in the first Millennium Series event. The pinnacle being Dynasty’s 50th professional win at the first NPPL event.

    Lang and his team have achieved more wins than any other professional paintball team winning one third of all professional paintball events ever played. They have become icons in the sport continuing to push boundaries and paving the way for paintball hopefuls.

    Later in 2011 Lang released “Principles of Paintball” a DVD teaching rookies the tricks and tips that have led him to numerous world titles and countless wins - keen to tutor hopeful players.

    In 2015 Lang took a break from Pro Paintball in the US, and played Millenniums only with Russian team the Polar Bears, alongside his longtime team mate from Dynasty, Ryan Greenspan. He returned to play the last event of the season in the US with Dynasty, NXL World Cup. Buoyed by his return, Dynasty went on to defeat Houston Heat in one of the great games of paintball. If you haven't already seen it, check out the final here.

    The win meant Dynasty put together an incredible streak of winning a pro event every year for fifteen years back to back. Planet Eclipse made an amazing documentary we would full recommend watching about Dynasty winning that event and completing that streak:

    In 2016 Ollie didn't play Millenniums, just NXL, but Dynasty had a very mixed season, finishing 2nd, 10th, 7th, 2nd and finally 8th across the season. 2016 season rankings left them 6th overall.

    In recent years, whilst playing less paintball, Lang has spent a lot of time travelling the world and in that time he's become a very spiritual person and discovered a love for art, writing, poetry and photography.

    Lang has been notably absent from any of Dynasty's photos and videos in the build up to the NXL season opener, so the news may have been partially expected by some. Following the news, tributes appeared social media from fellow pro paintballers that have played with and against Oliver over the years:

    Oliver, in our eyes you are the greatest of all time. Thanks for the memories and for everything you've done for our beloved game.
