So while I haven’t talked much about it in a while, things have really been ramping up with my paintball team (DesertEdge). With recent wins, we’ve had some great exposure, and just picked up a new sponsor, Furious who will be providing our new barrels to match up on our amazing Planet Eclipse Ego’s. Here’s the press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Team Desert Edge Signs Sponsorship Agreement with Furious
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – March 1, 2010 – Team Desert Edge, one of the most recognized and accomplished competitive woodsball teams in the sport, has inked a sponsorship deal with Furious Painball LLC, the maker of the most advanced paintball barrels made.
Tim Saunders, Co-Captain of Team Desert Edge points out, “Every player is looking for the most accurate and consistent barrel available. Desert Edge has found just that. The Lotus Barrel by Furious, is the world’s most advanced barrel design.” Tim continues, “The combination of the Planet Eclipse markers and the new Furious barrels is a perfect mesh of reliability and unmatched precision.”
Desert Edge Team Captain, Dan Saunders adds, “The quality of the new Lotus Barrel is helping our team perform better. The honing and porting are so perfect, our shots are more consistent, air is more efficient, and when a ball breaks, the next shot cleans the barrel perfectly! That keeps our shots right on target.” Dan continues, “In competitive woods paintball, the importance of accurate shots and a self-cleaning barrel is crucial. It’s a benefit almost unheard of, that we now have.”
“This partnership is the perfect fit.” Dan says. “Furious is a relatively small, but growing operation, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the growth of such a great company. We look forward to exposing other players to such quality and reliable equipment.”
Dan continues, “We are honored to join the Furious family with winning teams like Vicious, San Francisco Explicit and Rockstar. We look forward to continuing the winning habits in the woodsball tournament scene.”
“Matthew, at Furious is excited to work with Desert Edge, and is genuinely interested in Paintball as a whole.” Says Dan. “Matthew is currently working with the UWL (Ultimate Woodsball League) in organizing a tournament series in Malaysia. Dan adds, “Matthew has strong ties with the paintball community, both in the U.S. and Malaysia. This may be our chance to reach the Paintball community on a more global level.”
Furious Paintball’s Matthew Nekvapil comments, “Furious Paintball sees an opportunity in the Scenario market. We have always wanted to get in there and work with a great scenario team, which we have found with Team Desert Edge.”
Matthew continues, “We are excited about the fact that they are enthusiastic to work with us. They have been around for some time, their results speak for themselves. At Furious, we pride ourselves on our customer service. The teams we work with is a testament to this. We feel that Desert Edge is the right fit with Furious.”
Furious Paintball specializes in custom and precision manufacturing of paintball equipment. They are most recognized by their beautifully handcrafted barrels and their ultra long lasting paintball batteries. The founder, an enthusiastic paintball player demands only the best and most reliable equipment and as a result of that, Furious Paintball came into being.
The partnership of Desert Edge and Furious Paintball will surly bring one of the most exciting seasons we have seen in competitive woodsball.
