Right on! I lost 45 lbs playing paintball and working out. I also love how I feel after a good game.

The 2012 season was my return to paintball after being out for 21 years. I returned with my 11 year old son. I have been fortunate that I have been able to share the things I love with him whether it be archery, BMX racing, canoeing, or carving on our longboards. Having him play paintball has been my favorite. One of the great things - with a mask, you don't know how old (or gray I am - LOL). Why is Junior smiling? Why ? Because Daddy let him play with Daddy's CCM - of course ! Yeah I know, I'll be ordering another 6.5 this year.

When I saw these markers at the field I goto it really made me happy. Not only seeing these but the field has Wednesday night games with them and only with these new splatmasters. I really want to take my daughter for her first game with these and teach her the basics of paintball. Only 2 things have kept me from taking her before... First she is petite and the masks almost fits and second I am afraid that she will get turned off from the sport do to these new markers. So thank you JT for bringing these to the market.

Had to add this...

I paintballed for the first time around age 14. I don't know if this was considered a "late" start or not, but I most definitely was okay with my parents NOT paintballing with me.

This being said, parents should support their children being out and active, whether it be paintball or any other form of sport or activity.
