BUFFALO GROVE, IL - SEPTEMBER, 2005 - Tippmann Sports, the world-leading manufacturer of high performance paintball markers and related accessories, has introduced the ultimate field rental kit. The new kit combines all essential rental equipment for today's playfields in a single, convenient package. The individual components within the kit, including a marker, hopper, goggles, CO2 tank, barrel sleeve and squeegee, were carefully selected by Tippmann for their quality construction, extreme durability and ease of use.
"Our new kit offers paintball field owners the very best rental equipment at an incredible value," said Patrick Ehren, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Tippmann Sports. "We've bundled all the necessary elements of a successful rental program together to save fields significant time and money. For the first time, a complete assortment of the most respected rental equipment in paintball can now be secured with just one phone call. Without question, starting and maintaining a top notch rental program just got a whole lot easier."
The most significant components of Tippmann's ultimate field kit are the marker and goggles. The newly enhanced marker looks just like Tippmann's legendary 98 Custom™, but includes a permanent, laser etched "Rental" marking to allow field owners to instantly recognize their own markers. Plus, a polyester-acrylic finish has been added to the semi-automatic, fully upgradeable marker for extended protection during frequent use.
The new V-Force® Vantage™ Field Goggles included with each kit are among the most durable and easiest to clean on the market. The lightweight and comfortable goggles incorporate a foamless rubber gasket design as well as a quick change, anti-fog lens for fast and effective clean up.
"This is a great package for any playfield," said Dave Massey, President of Hell Survivors, a popular paintball field in Pinckney, Mich. "Tippmann markers have been tested in the field and stand up to the rigors of frequent use like no other product. When you pair a Tippmann marker with a durable, high-performance goggle like the V-Force® in your rental program, you have a one-two combination that simply can't be beat. We're planning to upgrade our entire fleet with this deal."
Tippmann's ultimate field kit is currently available in packs of 10. Field owners can add to the kits by purchasing additional components separately, including a filling station, digital CO2 scale and hand chronograph, which measures marker velocity.
"Our new rental kit was developed with input and suggestions from field owners across the country," Ehren added. "At Tippmann, we're always on the lookout for opportunities to make paintball safer, easier and more profitable for fields of all sizes. It's a formula we've followed from day one and it's been critical to our success throughout the years. We remain completely focused on evolving the game for the benefit of everyone involved."
