Eeh. Andy has always been really good to the field I go to. They were good to me and awesome to hang out with at "The Spot". I'll continue to support them with my money.

Taking over the direction is what you do when you acquire a business that is going under, you take over the direction and attempt to make it succeed.
And to be fair, I'm not talking about all the execs either... They do emply some really cool people in the industry... Just don't want to name names, cause they get lawyer happy...

Andy is an AWESOME guy! Both on and off the field... And maybe I should keep my opinions to myself... Because there are some really cool people that I know affiliated with Valken... I just know a few who have been screwed too... So that's why I choose to NOT support them with my dollars...

And EVERYONE can get a Valken "sponsorship"! I have a LOT of friends who are Valken fan-boys... Even my team captain runs a paintball store, he LOVES Valken... But that is for his buisness... We don't do ANYTHING with the team and Valken...

My goal was not to offend anybody... Just sharing some opinions that I have (and not very well :P).... So, sorry, I could have done this better...

I'm always taking heat for speaking out against them... Need to learn to keep my mouth shut

in my experience, both the sly masks and barrels suck... hopefully it was a cheap buyout.

Well now my knee/shin pad options are a little simpler. I was debating between these two companies for that and now it doesn't matter.

I'm not a fan of Valken eithor B-dazl. The only product that is halfway decent IMO is their pants. I have had to deal with a certain Valken exec. when he was with National pb. Any company he is affiliated with won't see any of my money.

I just now noticed your "Location" B-Dazl........ made me laugh, especially because I have family in Salt Lake
