Bravo Company wins the 4th Event of the GBS held in South Africa

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Team Bravo Company from South Africa recently won the 4th event of the Gauteng Bushball Series held at Paintball City in South Africa. Len Nery from Bravo

Company gave us a report of the event.

“The tournament attracted 12 teams comprising of seven playing members with two reserve players and was run using a round robin into single elimination format.

Thanks to the accuracy of our DYE Assault Matrix (DAM) markers, we didn’t lose a single game throughout the day and we rounded it off with a resounding 7 – 0

victory over our closest rivals in the finals equating to an emphatic overall win!

During the prize giving ceremony it was announced that Bravo Company broke two field records and won the prize for the two fastest games of the day by eliminating all seven of the opposing team in a time of 1 minute 40 seconds on the Village Field and 2 minutes 20 seconds on the Castle Field.

Paintball City Germiston and its staff provided the perfect platform for another outstanding tournament at a world class venue and it seems fitting that Bravo Company reached an important milestone at this event by coming the first team to win every tournament entered during 2013 in addition to securing first place overall in two league events (the Gauteng Bushball Series and the Tactical Paintball Series) within the first half of the year.

The enormous growth of this sport has seen more and more tournaments being held to cater for all the tactical bush teams and this has translated into two recognized series events each attracting up to 16 teams per event. In addition, there will be a South African Cup final for all qualifying teams to determine the best Tactical Bushball team in South Africa. The event will be held during the first week of December 2013 at Gariep Dam situated in the centre of South Africa.

Using our Dye Assault Matix markers, Bravo company aim to step onto the top step of that podium!”

Troy Nagel & Craig Marley Report from the 2013 U-Tac D-Day Scenario Event

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

South African Dye Tech, Troy Nagel, recently headed down to Cape Town for U-Tac’s annual D-Day Scenario event. The 2 day event attracts players from all over the country who come to battle it out on U-Tac’s impressive field. Troy had the Dye tech booth setup to fine tune all the Dye and Proto markers at the event and also to promote the incredible new Dye DAM marker!

Cape Town local and captain of team Dynamix, Craig Marley, was also on hand to back up Troy on the field and give players the chance to experience the DAM’s dominating performance.

Craig gave us his rundown of the event:

“Unfortunately the event was held on one of the stormiest days that Cape Town has ever seen, bringing rain, hail and freezing winds. Still the troops came out to battle with the Allies taking on the Axis, Allies started in the boats while the Axis waited behind bunkers for the doors to drop and the chaos to begin. The horn blew and it was all out WAR, wind, rain, hail and flying paint everywhere while we scrambled to find cover.

Troy and I were there to demo DYE’s new DAM, this was my first time playing with one and I was very impressed to say the least, what a great gun! It shot perfect the whole day using DYE CG paint and I loved the flexibility of being able to switch over to First Strike rounds on the fly to take those long range kills like a sniper, then flip back the switch and have the fire power to make the charge to the next bunker. I definitely felt like it gave me a huge edge on the field and most importantly I had a lot more fun!!

U-Tac is an incredible venue, one of the best scenario fields in the world and extremely well run, a big thanks to Allan and his crew for a great event. The Blades & Triggers staff were also really helpful and made sure that players had everything they needed throughout the event. Thanks to Switch MultiMedia for covering the event and taking some great pics.

Also a big thanks to Troy Nagel and DYE for the DAM and tactical gear, I can’t wait for the next scenario game!

It was an amazing event and I highly recommend that you plan to be there next year!”

Team Dynamix on a Winning Streak! SARPL Event #3 Recap

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Dynamix are on a winning streak, taking 1st place once again at the recent SARPL Event 3. Craig Marley gave us a write up of the event and shared his thoughts on the performance of the new 2013 Dye product line and Dye CG paint:

SARPL Event 3 – Sunday, 7 April 2013

We had just recieved our new Dye gear and DM13′s before the event, straight out the box, they shot like a dream!

The event started on a very cold Sunday morning putting the Dye CG paint to the test but despite the cold the paint performed really well.

It was amazing because we have only recently gone into winter and at the previous event it had been extremely hot but the Dye CG

paint performed in both extreme temperatures!! This paint truly is incredible!

Dynamix dominated through out the event not losing a single match or point in the prelims. Our new player Daniel Hertog got a

chance to prove himself on the dorito side, he communicated well and got a lot of kills, this kid is a good asset to the team.

 

Dynamix dominated the event, only dropping one point all day to take first place. We also got the fastest game of 31 seconds due to

the all new Dye ultra light gear. The DM13 out the box ran great and CG paint continues to impress us.

Thank you’s to:

Dye for great gear and paint.

Blades and Triggers for all your support for the last 7 years and are proud to be affiliated as a Dye BNT Team.

Havaianas our new addition to our sponsorship for our stylish feet.

Switch Multimedia for the great photography.

And a big thanks to the SARPL for hosting a great event and to all the teams that travelled far and wide to make this a success!

 

Dye DAM Takes Bravo Company to 1st Place!

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

Team Bravo Company from South Africa recently won the second event of the Gauteng Bushball Series using their new DAM markers.

Len Nery from Bravo Company gave us a rundown of the event and filled us in on how the DAM’s performed:

“This was the second leg of the seven man 2013 Bushball Series and the first time the Dye Assault Matrix was used during a competition in this country.

Bravo Company Paintball arrived at the event as hot favourites after winning the previous event that was held at The Bush Paintball Field (http://bushpaintball.co.za/) and we certainly made an impression by arriving for the event with seven Dye Assault Matrix markers to point at opposing teams! Within the team all members began the day with one goal and that was to win the event without losing a single game and that’s exactly what transpired. Not only did Bravo Company convincingly win every game including 4 perfect scores (no loss of players), but at most only lost two players in a single game!

The pin point accuracy delivered by the DAM was a key factor in our success and whilst only ten First Strike rounds were fired by Bravo Company during the tournament it yielded one confirmed kill.

The accuracy when sighting down the rail is mind blowing and a refreshing change to any other marker we’ve used. A few of the Bravo Company members have removed some of the extra rails and reported that the Dye Assault Matrix felt very light and was easy to manoeuvre during game play and we are also very impressed with the ease of removing the bolt.

It is a brilliantly thought out marker that will allow Bravo Company Paintball to be a serious force to be reckoned with during 2013.”
