NPPL Chicago Open & Living Legends 4

We hit the road Friday morning from Atlantic Canada all the way to CPX Sports to check out the NPPL Chicago Open and Living Legends 4. We also took back with us to Canada a nice new 44 piece NPPL Sup Air field which we are pleased to offer to help grow the sport of 7-man in Atlantic Canada.

The drive was very f*cking long but once we landed and the weather was nice it really made up for the excessive amount of driving. We will be posting videos and sharing a few stories and possible rumors that we heard over the weekend shortly.

We also would like to say congratulations to 3CT which is made of of some of the top Canadian paintballers on their Division 2 First place finish. Keep your eyes on these guys for the season and they surely will be making a few visiting to the podium this season.

Until we get around to posting up stuff from the weekend you can keep yourself busy with an glimpse from the Miss NPPL bikini contest.

KEE Action Sports Buys XO Industries

Originally Posted by Propaintball.com

This morning we learned that KEE Action Sports Group has purchased Canadian paintball manufacture and product distributor XO Industries. XO has a large foothold in the Canadian market place and has been steadily gaining ground in the United States marketplace by selling quality paintballs at low prices. XO currently manufactures a large line of paintball products including but not limited to several different grades of paintballs, both on and off the field gear and markets to the scenario players under the brand Gen-X-Global. KEE Action Sports has several high profile and extremely successful brands such as BT for the scenario players, a full line RPS Paintballs under the brands EVIL and RPS, and EMPIRE branded playing gear. The two companies will be working to consolidate their brands under one name and distribution network and we can only speculate as to which one is going to win out. However, the real shake up will take place at the end of the season when teams contracts are renegotiated and KEE/XO determine which teams to keep in their Pro stable. KEE currently sponsors the Russian Legion, San Diego Dynasty, Infamous, San Antonio X-Factor and Tampa Bay Damage. XO currently sponsors Edmonton Impact, New England Hurricanes, Orange County Bushwackers and Portland Naughty Dogs. From what we understand, XO Industries has reassured the sponsored teams that their contracts and agreements will be honored. With budgets tightening and the natural focus of acquisition teams being to cut costs and cut out the overlap between the two companies, one can only speculate that they will refocus their sponsorship on an elite group. The deal between KEE and XO is a major move that further consolidates the paint manufacturing industry; on one side we have Procaps/DXS who recently merged with Archon/ZAP, and on the other, KEE merging with PMI and XO. Paintball is going to get interesting!
