Was that video for real? I watched it and it seemed so over the top I was waiting for Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald to make an appearance*.

Not for me... but it's good to see someone's done it.

My impression was the backpack was -FAKE-. Yes, FAKE.

Read the fine print, and they do not plan on releasing it for another year. I can't find any videos of it actually working. That tells me that it doesnt work, and is still in the early prototype stages.

Lots of companies have tried to put backpack loaders into the market, and they end up as vaporware. I've seen a few pop up in APG over the years... even back to the early 90s.

Its not to say that it wont come to market. It might. Lots of people have many homemade versions... and some work better then others. There are lots of technical issues with all that weight of paintballs, and how far they have to be pushed.

As a pistol player I'm with VoodooAddict. More power to them!


I do congratulate Valken on designing the largest 'hard target you wear' in the history of paintball....
On the bright side it would save my knees alot of wear and tear, as there would be no point going prone ever again... I'd still be three feet tall!

I hate how companies say not due out till next year but they are taking pre-orders now. have the product first before taking orders. things happen in that time frame. look at the JRNY by NXe and the eye goggles by Angel.

I love how they had a 98 clone (couldn't tell if it actually was a Tippmann or if it was Valken's clone which would make more sense) being able to shoot 30 bps. So Agg
