Written by  |  Thursday, 11 October 2012 00:00  |  Published in New Product Spotlight

A few years ago DYE jumped into the scenario, woodsball and MilSim market with both feet.—with their NT11 DM Series marker and their tactical line of products. DYE’s newest tactical maneuver is the release of their DAM (DYE Assault Matrix) which was built from the ground up to be the ultimate product for tactical players—and it’s packed with features. The DAM has the ability to switch from a Magazine Fed system to a Loader Fed system with the flip of a switch, it can seamlessly change firing modes (semi, three round burst, full auto), comes standard with Picatinny rails for accessorizing, a gas-through frame, an easily maintainable bolt with a quick release system and built in hyper regulator, clamping feedneck, competition-style single trigger frame, Dye Tactical Sticky Grips, and much more.

The people behind the company known as GOG, the same people that introduced the original Shocker in 1995, now believe they have another game-changer in their new eNMEy pneumatic regulated spool valve marker. The eNMEy, due for release any day will be priced at the same level as your entry level blowback marker. “There’s no hammer, mainspring or sear in the eNMEy(TM). You’ve got to shoot it to believe it,” says GOG’s Adam Gardner, referring to the smooth performance made possible by the marker’s spool valve design. “That’s why we’re inviting paintball techs from around the world to take the eNMEy(TM) tech class free of charge at this year’s World Cup – and to leave with an eNMEy(TM) of their own.” Visit for more.

Okay, so this product is so new that it’s not even out yet but there are pictures. All of the Spire internals are mounted on a tray, which is quickly removed with the slide of the convenient Tray Release Tab. The Spire Drive's Flex Cycle allows the Spire to feed even the most brittle paint and its spring loaded arms slide underneath and push jams out of the way before they occur. The Spire is small and it shoots Reballs and paintballs. Look for more about the Spire at And when we get one of these in our hands we’ll be all over it here in New Product Spotlight.

Valken Zing Paintballs

Written by  |  Thursday, 02 August 2012 00:00  |  Published in New Product Spotlight

Newsflash – not everyone that plays paintball shoots a $1000 marker and the top grade of paintballs available. In fact there a lot less of those than the rest of us that shoot $250 markers and field grade paint. All of that said, Valken’s Zing paintballs are an excellent entry level/field grade paintball. The slightly thicker shell allows the paint to be shot in guns that are a little tougher on paint—namely many of the entry level markers—and that’s a good thing. Zing Paintballs are 100% PEG, which means they are safer for the environment then some paintballs. Check them out here.
