BUFFALO GROVE, IL - FEBRUARY 9, 2006 - Tippmann Sports, the world-leading manufacturer of paintball markers and related accessories, has launched two high performance electronic loaders, which will be marketed under a new sub-brand, Triumph by Tippmann. Each new loader, the SL-200 and AL-200, can hold up to 200 paintballs and features a lightweight, aerodynamic design, quiet operation and an LED on/off and low-battery indicator. Both loaders also come standard with a snap fit, wide-mouth lid and adjustable "O-Ring" neck, which allows the systems to fit easily on most paintball markers.

In addition to the features found on both new loaders, the SL-200 also includes patented Bend Sensor Technology. Bend Sensor Technology ensures the loader operates just when the marker is fired. Only as a ball passes the Bend Sensor, will the agitation arm engage to move another ball into position. This helps to prolong battery life, prevent jamming and improve the efficiency of the unit by allowing for higher rpm of the agitation arm when engaged. In addition, unlike other loaders with electronic eyes that sometimes have difficulty acknowledging certain color paintballs, the Bend Sensor Technology performs consistently with paintballs of any color. The SL-200 has a feed rate of 15 balls-per-second, while the AL-200 feeds approximately 10 balls-per-second.

"We're very excited about our Tippmann-branded loaders," said Patrick Ehren, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Tippmann Sports. "These new products offer lightweight and versatile performance, an impressive 200-round capacity, quiet operation and a sleek, next-generation shape. The Triumph by Tippmann sub-brand is a platform on which we'll be introducing new paintball accessories that can be used with other manufacturer's markers as well as our own, while providing players the quality and performance they've come to expect from Tippmann. Without question, Triumph is a promising and logical extension of the Tippmann brand. Look for other new Triumph products coming soon."

The Triumph AL-200 and SL-200 will be available at a variety of paintball dealers and sporting goods outlets beginning in March. The AL-200 will carry a suggested retail price of $29.95, while the SL-200 will have a suggested retail price of $69.95. Both loaders will be sold under the Triumph name in new clamshell packaging to showcase the unique design of each unit.
