Paintball Sports Promotions, the world’s leader in producing competitive paintball events, is excited to announce that Dave Pando (Camp Pendleton Paintball Park, DYE Precision, Chattanooga CEP) has joined the PSP Team as Director of Marketing.
Pando brings unique experience from all ends of the paintball spectrum. Having worked for some of the largest parks in the world (Camp Pendleton, Giant Sportz), published articles in leading magazines (FACEFULL, Action Pursuit Games), done marketing for major brands (DYE Precision), competed in the NCPA, NPPL, and PSP for over a decade, he’s developed a well-rounded understanding of why people play paintball. Pando’s perspective on the industry, coupled with new media marketing techniques, will help Paintball Sports Promotions interact with customers and fans, while expanding its reach.
“Pando represents the “second” generation of paintball players. We like his ideas, we like the experience he brings to the table, and we love his passion. Everyone here thinks his attitude is going to be a great fit.” – Dave “Youngblood” DeHaan, CEO of PSP Events.
As Director of Marketing, Pando will be responsible for launching a new PSPEvents.com suite, ramping up social media efforts, implementing new marketing strategies both during and in-between events, and anything else he can get his hands on.
“If you asked me what my paintball industry dream job was five years ago, or even five weeks ago, my answer would have been the Director of Marketing for PSP. I’m here to light a spark, listen to the players, and help elevate the PSP to the level we all know it can get to.“ – Dave Pando
Sport Smoke Grenades and Pouches
Sport Smoke attended the 2014 Paintball Extravaganza with their full line of American-made smoke grenades and new Molle compatible pouches. Offering safe, reliable and affordable smoke grenades to enhance any scenario or tactical paintball event and now offering MOLLE pouches to carry them around in, Sport Smoke pouches are durable and offer a tailor-made way to haul around smoke grenades, while their grenades are a great choice when you need to…well…pop smoke!
Though already available via a “soft launch” just before Christmas 2013, the Pinokio SPEED hopper was a hit at the 2014 Extravaganza thanks in no small part to the postal scale the company brought to the show. Those who took the time to stop by the Pinokio booth were shown that the SPEED weighs well under 15 ounces with its two nine-volt batteries inserted, making it an incredibly light high-speed paintball hopper. Constructed from durable nylon shells to prevent feed neck cracks, able to feed over 20 paintballs per second, be cleaned and maintained without tools and use existing Exalt feed gates for faster reloading, the Pinokio SPEED impressed at the Extravaganza and by Thursday the company was selling display models to satisfy excited new dealers!
The TGRONE comes standard with an ergonomic grip that is interchangeable with most real steel AR-15 grips as well as airsoft M4/M16 GBB grips.

While they may not necessarily have hit the 2014 Paintball Extravaganza with anything flashy, mind-boggling or Earth-shattering, it’s certainly mind-boggling and Earth-shattering when a paintball park, tournament or major scenario event can’t give paying customers 4500psi air fills. That’s when a day at the paintball field is no fun. The way paintball fields and stores can ensure that their customers absolutely always have a full air bottle is to team up with the experts at Bauer Compressors. These guys know how to produce a high-tech, high-quality compressor capable of handling any high pressure air task a paintball pro-shop or park might need, then stand behind that product with world-class service. Paintballs don’t fly without air. A Bauer Compressor is how you make that air. End of story.
