Gi Sportz Glide Pants Review

GI Sportz Glide Pants, best pants in 2016? Just maybe! When these pants were being first tested in February 2015 the players who saw them saw something unexpected. Most paintball pants up to this point we very heavy duty, stiff and heavily padded. Usually the pants with no padding were very cheaply made. The all new GI Sportz Glide pants are probably the lightest, most flexible paintball pants I have ever tried on. If you are familiar with paintball pants the Dye UL pants are light weight with little padding but not the same as the GI Sportz Glide Pants.

Have you ever tried to stretch before playing while wearing your paintball pants? If so, most likely you know you aren’t really able to get a full stretch in most positions. While testing the GI Sports Glide pants, players asked me if I really liked them and I would show them how I was able to squat, bend over and move freely in all positions. If the pants got wet, because of the light weight they would dry out very fast!

Some key features I enjoyed while testing these pants

-Incredible Flexibility while playing

-Lightest Paintball pants I have ever worn.

-No heavy zippers to break or dig into your sides and legs.

-Draw String combined with Velcro waist band

-Strong draw string ankle band to prevent ripping

If you have any questions about these pants before you buy, please email me directly! John at Pro Edge Paintball.com

Pro Edge Paintball has these pants in stock with FREE SHIPPING! So please show your support and visit www.ProEdgePB.com to order your GI Sportz Glide Pants!

charlotte-new-years-eve-2015

Congrats you made it through 2014! If you didn’t get a new paintball gun for Christmas and are in the market for a new paintball marker we are going to break down the most exciting new top paintball guns for the year 2015!

Each one of the markers below has made it to our list for Best Paintball Gun in 2015 due to the history of the companies and the performance these markers provide for a very fair price. We will show you the highest end and the entry level style markers that we still feel are the best markers available in 2015.


 

#1  Eclipse Geo 3.5 – See Color Options Here

Planet Eclipse has gone above and beyond this time. Over the last year or so Eclipse has made small changes to their Geo line but the Eclipse Geo 3.5 tops it off.

The 3.5 is now the most efficient, sleekest looking and one of the lightest spool valve paintball markers now available. Unfortunately not everyone can spend close to $1500 on their paintball gun BUT if you can, this marker is the Ferrari of paintball markers. This paintball gun has the smoothest shot of the Eclipse like of guns. Just like test driving a car, some cars you just have to sit in for yourself to get the feel and understand why one is that much more amazing than another. The Geo 3.5 is the exact same situation! The look, feel and the smooth shot just makes it an amazing overall paintball gun.

 

Eclipse Geo 3.5 Best Marker

To start is off, all eclipse markers come in a metal zipper case that is heavy duty to protect your new baby. Each 3.5 comes with a large o ring kit that includes any and all o rings you would ever need in addition to an allen set and a large tube of lube for maintenance.

Best Planet Eclipse LV1 Upgrades

The Planet Eclipse Ego LV1 is by far one of the most advanced paintball guns ever produced. Even for the most advanced paintball guns there are always upgrades that can make the performance, feel and look even that much better!We are very picky when it comes to upgrades, there is no reason to spend money on items that don’t actually offer improvement of performance or overall feel of the marker.
Below we break down each recommended upgrade to show you why it is worth every dollar spent. 
The following items are the best and most needed upgrades for the LV1! 

The trigger on the Eclipse LV1 is nice for some players, but the Violent Products triggers are by far the best trigger upgrades available in the sport.
The Violent Series Deuce LV1 trigger offers a much better feel and a lighter weight which allows a smoother trigger pull.  

  • Ergonomically correct
  • Super lightweight
  • Made of Delrin
  • 5 way adjustment / pre travel, post travel , magnetic tension, spring
  •  tension and micro-switch
  • Full radius trigger face


Planet Eclipse Shaft4 Barrel Back – Black – .685 (Misc.)


List Price: Price Not Listed
New From: 0 Out of Stock
Used from: Out of Stock

The Shaft 4 barrel on the Ego LV1 is one of the most famous for it’s performance but all competitive players know that in order to shoot the most accurate in all conditions you must have a barrel kit that you can size your paintballs to. The stock barrel only comes with one barrel back and one barrel tip, the barrel back is the standard .689 bore size (inside diameter) which will work with a good amount of paintballs out there but definitely not all.
Buying an additional Shaft 4 barrel back of a smaller bore size (recommended .685) will allow you to shoot more accurate when the paintballs you are using are smaller than the only bore size the stock LV1 barrel comes with.
