^^^ I LOVE IT TOO. ITS A GREAT IDEA. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO USE FOR IT BUT I WOULD HAVE TO BUY IT JUST TO DUMP A CASE OF PAINT AT THE LOSERS AT THE REGULAR FIELD I PLAY AT.

That is a really amazing idea, very awesome however i would not buy one, but for those that would i would assume $200CND would be a good price

I doubt that happens. I'm sure he has it padded and eveything and even if he didnt it wouldnt bust anything

Very nice prototype.  Given that many folks pay over $100 for a loader, I would guess that a price in the $150 to $200 range would sell.  If it went much higher than that, I suppose there would still be a hard core group that would pony up.  It would seem like most scenario teams would want at least one.

As for what list price you place on it, I would imagine that you would need to charge at least 3 to 5 times the production cost in order to make any profit.  The lower figure would be for direct sales only.  If you have to go through distributors to retailers, then the higher figure is more realistic.  The only hope of bringing these figures down is to lay out a hefty marketing budget in the hope of substantially increasing the volume of sales.

Yeah OK, because he can prove he made this post. "Yes your honour, I posted this on a website on this date, therefore it's my design." I think the judge would laugh and then say no. There are so many things he could just not prove.

you guys are loco i swear. if a paintball grenade launcher can go for $1000 with 6 thunder grenades why can't he get $1200 a pop for his backpacks. I'm sure once a video is released he wont be able to make them fast enough for people who are interested in buying them.

I hope he already has the corp or s corp name and federal id number because i am ready to buy a few shares right now. i know this will be a big hit on the woods circut.

Sorry still no video. I keep getting home from work to late to shoot anything. Tonight I will try and make something that at least shows ball spitting out of the hopper.  I am very encourged by all the post and views.

Thanks.

P.S.  What about my gun does it look cool or what?

The only problem I forsee with the pack is that it is only compatable with the 98c cyclone or the A-5 cyclone.

I actually have a hopper for other guns but I am still waiting on Patent stuff for it. Since I am Tippmann fan amd I already have the patent pending I am posting that one first. I think the majority of woods players use tippmanns anyway 

Sorry you hate my gun Skruge.  I didnt like the placement of the stock LPK. The further back I can keep everytthing on the gun the better for me

Anything else you would like to randomly make up things about?  You really shouldn't make statements like this when you obviously have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

*rolls eyes*

In any event - glad you are taking appropriate action to protect your stuff, turtle.

the gun isn't that bad. I am just not a big fan of flatlines, whispers, and LPK's. How do you think the ape board matches up to the WAS?

thats sweet, looks heavy tho, i dunno, youd have to make one all homemade if you were gonna sell them, and youd have to have a lot of cash just laying around to get a thing started, but it looks good, nice 15 btw, whats the air setup, looks like a torp reg thru some kind of funky x chamber....?

When I type in the web address or copy and paste, It says "www.turtlebackpack.com cannot be found". so What I want to know is, how come all you guys can see the site but I can't?
