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.”

Team Dynamix – Champions of SARPL Event #2

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Team Dynamix from South Africa recently won the SARPL event 2 in Port Elizabeth. Craig Marley gave us a rundown of the event:

“The weekend started with the alarm waking us up at 1am Saturday morning , we loaded up the cars and trailers, the road trip began. Driving a very long 12hrs we arrived in a sunny and very hot Port Elizabeth. We headed straight to the field to walk it. On arriving, the layout was a lot different to what we had trained on at our home field of Blades and Triggers in Joburg, leaving us to make up a lot of new break out plans. The field walk took us well into Saturday night so it was a long day but we felt prepared for our games.

Sunday started early with setting up tents at the field and getting all our Dye gear ready. We were a bit worried about the Dye CG Paint as it had travelled in a trailer for 12 hours in the baking sun, much to our surprise the Dye CG paint shot great throughout the whole tourney giving us no problems at all. We started bashing out games early and with our new game plans we were very strong only dropping 2 points in the pool stages.

Leading into the semi’s, we played a very strong Johannesburg team, Reapers. We took first point the way we had most of the day but they had picked up some flaws in our game plan and used it against us. After a long point they managed to shoot all of us out, taking the second point. We quickly got together and changed our plans and used completely different break outs which we had not tried. We came back using a different game putting us in the finals.

We met a team from Port Elizabeth in the finals. We started off strong but dropped the second point. We got our heads back into the game to fight back as it was a long drive back and no one wanted that drive with a second place finish. After grinding the last point we had shot out their players and hung the flag taking the WIN!

With the second RPL completed we drove 12hrs back to Johannesburg with us arriving home at 5:30am but all of us smiling and as happy. We could not have done it without the help from our sponsors DYE, Blades and Triggers, DYE CG paintballs and the Smuts family. Thanks for all the support.”

Aruba Madness Makes Their Mark at 2012 PSP World Cup

Aruba Madness makes their mark on World Cup 2012

Aruba Madness, a DYE sponsored team from the small Caribbean Island, Aruba, played their hearts out this year at the 2012 PSP World Cup.  These beliers proved this year that it doesn’t matter where you live or how small paintball is where you’re from, all that matters is dedication, training, and heart.  For Aruba Madness, every weekend at practice, every tournament they played away from their country, every dollar they spent was all in preparation for the 2012 PSP World Cup.  Aruba is small, only 69 square miles, and a population of barely 100,000. But like many small countries, what it lacks in size it makes up ten-fold with national pride.

The team spent all of 2012 traveling throughout Latin America to larger events in order to find the toughest competition. They even traveled as far as Florida for a leg of the PSP affiliate league, the CFPS, where Aruba Madness Youngbloodz took first in their division.  When it was Time for World Cup, the boys from Aruba were confident and ready to represent their small country. They knew Aruba paintball could be competitive on the global stage, and they were ready to prove it.

The Aruba Madness camp fielded three teams for World cup this year. AM Kids played well for their first International event, placing just short of a Sunday showing. Aruba madness finished 1st in the prelims and ended up taking 6th overall in their division.  AM Youngbloodz powered through the competition, only losing two games the entire weekend.  Unfortunately, one of those losses came during the finals, and Yougbloodz had to settle for 2nd place.

All three teams from the Aruba Madness camp played with passion and proudly represented their small country all weekend long.  Thrilled at their accomplishments on Sunday afternoon, the team was not content to rest for long. Aruba Madness is already back on the training field, and seeking out tougher competition, with trips to more PSPs planned for next year. The Bar has been set and the goals have been raised; Win World Cup 2013.

“Aruba Madness would like to thank all of our local and international fans very much for all the support. Also we want to give big thanks our sponsors that made this year possible:”

Evolution wins D2 & D3 EPPL Series Titles

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

The last event of the EPPL (Ecuadorian Professional Paintball League) was held in Quito, Ecuador, and with a massive turnout of over 40 teams spread across four divisions, this was the event to be at in South America.

Our flagship team in Ecuador, Team Evolution, showed up ready to play as they breezed their way to the finals and found themselves matched up against a team they smashed in the prelims, Team Zurikatas.  In a really exciting finals match, Evolution would fall to Zurikatas 1-2, but still left victorious as the D2 Series Champions.  Evolution 2 also brought home some gold as the D3 Series Champs.

Congrats!

Aside from all of the competition,the DYE booth at the event was amazing, the biggest ever made in South America.  Tech service was on point, the staff service was excellent for our customers, and we had a full display of the entire 2013 product line. Dye SA created a stage so people could take pictures with the Dye Pros and win one of many prizes that were given out to the crowd.
A message from Juan Daniel Nebel Romero:
“Dye and Proto paint was sold at the event, probably the best paint I have shot in my life, it was a complete succes between the teams.  Our season is not over yet, we have one last event this weekend called “The Navikill”, a tactical event where we will be presenting the DAM to all of the players.  We are expecting Mr. U to come later this week, so look out for news and pictures of this event!
Thanks to DYE for their support this year on another succesfull season for Evolution, cant wait for next year!”

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Dye would like to send a special congratulations out to Team DYNAMIX from South Africa!  These ballers recently grabbed a 1st place in the pro division at the GPPL events 1 & 2.

The sport of paintball is growing fast in South Africa, as is the competition, but DYNAMIX has proved that they can hang with the best by bringing home gold in the pro division.

DYNAMIX stormed their way to victory using Dye CG Paintballs, DM12′s, Rotors, i4′s, and looked stylish doing it with their C12 playing gear.

Congrats!
