Fresh from JT Splatmaster… they’re starting a way to introduce newcomers to league play and competition!
(my original review here: http://foamfromabove.blogspot.com/2012/10/review-jt-splatmaster-z100-z200-and.html) I was a fan of it then, and am still a fan of it now. Between the accuracy and the comfortable feel of the Splatmaster line, it’s a solid buy if you’ve been thinking about it. It’s nowhere near as painful as paintball (due to the decreased fps) but tons of fun at closer ranges than you might expect with paintball.
Registration: $75 for a 3 person team. But here’s the part where I find it interesting….
oNo previous paintball tournament experience
o4 players max per team roster
–12 and under
–13 and older
oEquipment – Must use provided event equipment to participate
–JT SplatMaster z200 Shotgun
–JT SplatMaster Ammo
–Quick Load Tube
–JT SplatMaster Versus Vest
–30 balls per player per point
oSimple Rules –
–4 minute matches
–If a player is hit directly by a ball that player is eliminated
–If a ball breaks on the bunker and sprays on the player that player is not eliminated
–No foul language
–No physical contact
oPrizes Per Age Group –
–Trophy per player
–JT SplatMaster z200 Shotgun per player
–Medal per player
–JT SplatMaster z90 Pistol
–Medal per player
So there you go. If you’re an adult and not quite sure how you like regular paintball (like many of my friends), a parent with a 13+ child and looking for a fun activity to get into together, or just looking to introduce yourself to the sport or try something new, this might be the way to go!
Nevermind that CPX is known worldwide as one of the best fields in the nation (if not the world) but just to get out there and try something new.
I do love Nerf and everything that goes along with it, but I also keep an open mind. I’ll be checking this out, and hope to see you on the field.
