TIPPMANN TO SHOWCASE NEW PRODUCTS AND PROMOTIONS AT WORLD CUP

10/21/2008

Company plans a consumer giveaway and will provide sneak peek at new Activision paintball video game

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. – Tippmann Sports and HammerHead are planning to distribute free, limited edition Shark Tooth Barrels during PSP World Cup in recognition of the worldwide distribution partnership recently formed between the two companies. One barrel will be given away at the Tippmann booth every hour from 9 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 21 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25. Over the five-day event, nearly 50 barrels will be given away free-of-charge and one winner will get a completely moded X7 marker of their choice.

We’re thrilled about our new relationship with HammerHead, and wanted to do something special for World Cup attendees, said Patrick Ehren, vice president of sales and marketing for Tippmann Sports. And, there are several other developments we plan to highlight during this year’s World Cup – including the release of new accessories for our A-5 and X7 markers and a highly-anticipated paintball video game for Wii, XBox 360, PlayStation and PlayStation 3.

Any attendee of World Cup interested in trying the new Activision paintball video game is invited to stop by the Tippmann booth. The company is the exclusive scenario marker in the game, which will not be available to the general public until Nov. 18. The game will feature all Tippmann markers, a Tippmann scenario field and an unlockable X7 AK-style marker, which can only be used after players enter a special code from the Tippmann Web site.

Several new accessories for Tippmann’s popular A-5 and X7 markers will also be launched at World Cup. A new, external e-Grip for Tippmann’s A-5 is being introduced, which is similar to the version currently available for the company’s X7. It features five external firing modes that can be changed on the fly as well as a Hall Effect trigger for ultimate ease-of-use and performance.

Finally, the company will unveil two popular upgrades for its X7 marker, including a magazine expansion chamber and a non air-thru commando stock. The all-metal expansion chamber improves air efficiency and consistency and integrates seamlessly onto the X7. The non air-thru stock provides a realistic military appearance while also offering players enhanced stability.

For additional details, please stop by the Tippmann booth during PSP World Cup, which will be held at Disney’s Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Fla., Oct. 21-25, 2008.
