What's new with you?

Got a "state of the union" type e-mail from K2/JT/Viewloader/WGP a few days ago. The economy is down, the paintball industry is in a slump, less people are playing and less people are buying, woe is me, we are all going to the poor house.

Only this one ended on a positive note. "New and exciting products will be coming soon!" Which got me thinking. What has come down the line lately that might be considered new and exciting?

MILSIM is still scary and already considered boring. High end is ho-hum with only high priced vanity guns to pick through. (You know, the stock guns that are "uppriced" cause they are "upgraded" and anodized in some bizarre, hardly comprehensible or recognizable pro-team design.) Low end electronic markers continue to be advertised as if they were just thought of and designed yesterday. Even the R.I.P. ION keeps coming back buried underneath new layers of plastic.

New and exciting? The Pinokio?
