GoG Paintball USA is a manufacturer of quality paintball markers and barrels, including the popular GoG eNMEy, also available in a .50-caliber low impact rental version.
Badlands Inc. is Canada’s largest distributor of paintball equipment.
In a deal signed in Early December 2014, Badlands have become the Exclusive Distributor for GoG products in Canada. The product-line will be sold through Badlands retail channels, and also through its ‘one-stop-shop’ Wholesale Division, providing Canadian stores and fields with easy access to GoG products from coast to coast.
“We are especially excited about this deal. GoG products are solid and reliable. We feel ‘Low Impact Paintball’ is a smart way for field owners to expand their customer base, and the .50 cal GoG eNMEy rental-unit is the tool they need to be successful in that market – they are capable of shooting fragile paint as low as 120 fps, are super-lightweight, and have a trigger-pull less than 2lbs. Perfect for younger players. We will be making demo units available to fields, starting immediately. I encourage field owners to try the markers for themselves, and to consider making low impact paintball available for their clientele.”
Owen Ronayne – Badlands Wholesale Division
“I’m thrilled to sign Badlands Inc as our Exclusive GoG Distributor for Canada. Badlands have a terrific reputation in the industry for professionalism and outstanding customer service. I know that our product-line is in the best possible hands.”

Most everyone in paintball knows Azodin for their excellent line of markers. And for good reason–their Kaos, Blitz, Blitz Evo and ATS are some of the best markers in their respective price ranges. But there’s so much more to Azodin than their marker line. They’ve recently release a new line of one and two-piece barrels, a marker stand and their product line includes aluminum tanks, of/off ASA’s, inline regulators, parts kits, barrel covers and their latest accessory, the Azodin 90 Macroline Elbow. This stylish looking anodized 90 Macroline Elbow (for use with Macroline hose) has an easy to use push in and lock system, swivels 90 degrees, is 1/8″ NPT thread and fits all Azodin On/Off ASA and inline regulators. Check it out HERE.
San Diego Dynasty triumph over Edmonton Impact in an incredibly close match to become the 2014 PSP Mid-Atlantic Professional Champions! This is Dynasty’s first PSP win since last year’s Mid-Atlantic Open event. Edmonton Impact placed in the top 4 at each and every event last season. After adjusting to off-season roster changes, this event proves that they will continue to be a major threat for that 1st place title. Chicago Aftershock impressively finished in 3rd place with their best PSP performance since 2010 and Tampa Bay Damage improved from their previous event where they fought off relegation in Dallas by coming in 4th overall at the MAO.
Houston Heat and Moscow Red Legion each earned their spot back into the Champions Division after battling it out in the Challengers Division all weekend long. Proving no one is safe in this extremely talented Professional Division, 2014 PSP Dallas Champions Los Angeles Infamous and the international star-studded roster of Moscow’s Art Chaos were both relegated down to the Pro Challengers Division and will have to work their way back into the Champions Division at the 2014 PSP Chicago Open.
Perhaps the greatest storyline of the event comes from Division 1′s DC Devastation. They won Division 3 at the 2012 MAO, won Division 2 the following year and stepped up to win Division 1 this year!
In other divisional results, Rack City Klutch beat out Stratton Oakmont Bears to win the Division 2 title and Chicago Warped were able to beat Absolute Chaos to win Division 3. PR1ME 2 won Division 4 after defeating SA Notorious while Asylum TrueBallers were crowned Pump Champions after winning against Lockout. In the RaceTo-2 Format, Jersey Storm beat Rhythm for the D3 title and Chicago Aggressive Black took out SLK to become Division 4 RaceTo-2 Champions.
All of this action happened at the Outdoor Xtreme Chesapeake City (OXCC) Paintball Park in Maryland and everything from the Champions field was broadcasted live to thousands around the world through the PaintballAccess.com webcast. The PSP would like to thank all players, fans, sponsors, staff and OXCC for bringing the tournament paintball world together once again at the 2nd stop of PSP’s 2014 circuit.
Next up is the massive PSP Chicago Open held at CPX Sports Park in Joliet, Illinois June 19 – 22, 2014. This event will sell out rapidly for teams as well as grandstand/VIP tickets – so be sure to claim your spot as soon as registration opens!

We’re bursting at the seams! The PSP continues to grow in popularity. We added an extra field in Dallas due to demand. The upcoming MAO event will be the largest second event of a season since 2005! But success has created a new problem. The traditional Race To structure limits the total number of teams that can participate at a PSP tournament. Even at the best locations there is often a limit to the number of fields the league can set up. If this trend continues we will need to either turn teams away-which we do not want to do-or find a more efficient way to use the fields and space available.
In an effort to explore possible solutions the PSP will be introducing PSP RaceTo MAXX on a limited basis at MAO. D3 RaceTo-4 & D4 RaceTo-4 will have the first opportunity to compete using the MAXX formula. PSP RaceTo MAXX does not alter the RaceTo format in any way. The teams affected will still be competing in RaceTo-4. What MAXX does is it allows more efficient scheduling which in turn should make it possible for more teams to compete in their chosen version of RaceTo on the same number of fields.
How will it work? Simply put, four teams will share a field at the same time with two matches running simultaneously with the two pairs of teams taking turns. Teams A and B run a point and then teams C and D run the next point so that they are alternating points. When one pair of teams finish their match the next two teams will enter the pits and prepare to begin their match regardless of the status of the other match being played. The MAXX fields will have separate pit areas for all the competing teams. For example, this means there will be a Home Pit A and Home Pit C separated by a chrono station on one side of the score table, and Away Pit B and Away Pit D on the other side, each pit with their own separate pit boards that maintain separate match/game clocks for each match. The main board on the field will display the information for the point that is about to start (during breaks) or the match in progress (point being played). If a match’s break clock reaches 30 seconds when the other match is still in progress, it will stop at 30 seconds. Once the other match finishes, the 30 seconds will start rolling so the teams have 30 seconds to get to their start stations.
Once a match ends, we put a 5-minute break clock on that match’s scoreboard while the other match continues. The previous team moves out, and the next team moves in. There will be an on-deck staging tent directly behind the match pits so teams can pod up, gear up, get guns working, etc, in the on-deck tent prior to their match and just carry their set-up stuff into the match pit when they’re up to play.
Confused? Concerned? Don’t worry. There will be additional PSP staff to assist the MAXX teams. In addition, all the competing teams will always have at least two minutes between points, never less. In fact, depending on the field teams may have extra turnaround time between points making it easier to get ready. Competing teams will have their own pit for the duration of their match and the on-deck teams will have a separate tented area to stage for their matches.
The PSP thanks the participating teams for their cooperation. It is our goal to provide the best possible tournament paintball competition and we are confident that MAXX will allow the league to grow without impacting the quality of our events.
