NEH Webisodes

Hello and Happy Chinese New Year to everyone!! It's been a while since the last post, was occupied with all the CNY stuff. I've been eating lots of different kinds of food, now having a sore throat liao.

Before the CNY, I saw this video on YouTube about the New England Hurricanes (NEH). They've disbanded the team and started again from scratch recruiting fresh talents. It is a documentary on the new NEH, presented in a series of webisodes. It must be a blast for the participants, having the pros watch them play and spotting their talent...

It's really good for the team to show the public how a pro team is formed and run. Another eye-opener is the snow and cold weather. I've never seen people playing speedball in the winter, it's so cold you can see their breath!

For now, only the first episode is made. So subscribe to the channel and stay tuned for more!

Sly's New Paintball Mask

Among all the paintball masks i've tried on, only two are comfortable for me. They are the VForce Profiler (which i'm currently using, and harder to find now) and the Dye i4.

Seeing that there're so many masks available in the market, yet only two fit me well, i was hoping that more manufacturers will come out with their own mask (Planet Eclipse for example). That way i'll have more options if i ever want to change a new mask. There were talks that VForce will be coming out with a new mask, but so far it seems that they are only rumors.

Then, just this morning, i read Seburo's blog and saw the new Sly Profit mask. From the pictures, the shape of the lens is pretty similar to the i4, even the quick change system looks the same. The nose bridge area also seems to be higher than other masks, which is one of the reason why i like my Profiler so much. I prefer to have to foam at the nose area sitting higher up near the eyes, providing a larger space for the nose. I hate the feeling of foam pressing against my nose.

Werdna Hol is the official distributor of Sly Equipment in this part of the world. I've checked their website for pricing but found none. From, they're selling at the same price as the i3 pro.

Hopefully the Sly Profit mask will be as comfortable as the i4, but with more protection.

Some features of the mask:
  • Integrated double strap for goggle angle adjustment and maximum retention.
  • Durable and stylish nylon frame with co-molded soft TPR lower jaw for maximum protection while maintaining bounce potential.
  • Molded TPR vents for optimum heat dissipation and sound penetration.
  • Lightning fast, patent-pending lens retention system. Fastest lens changes in the industry.
  • NEW 3M-Engineered sealed thermal gasket system. This new impenetrable white thermal seal offers the ultimate seal against moisture and paint seepage between lens layers.
  • Velvet lined, soft cell foam atop molded impact absorbent SBR foam earpieces for that soft-ear bounce with pillow-like comfort. These earpieces muffle your own screaming and allow for superb directional hearing.
      • Every SLY PROFIT Goggle System comes equipped from the factory with a thermal sealed, gradient lens, fading from a deep, rich smoke to crystal clear. This offers optimal shading from glare, UV, and infrared light at a distance, with crystal clear up close, downward vision for those tiny gun LCDs or your game timer.
      • Industry-first gradient mirrored lens available, for those bright, eye squinting summer practices where you still need to see up close.

      Ollie's jersey for real?

      If you've been following Dye Paintball on Facebook, you'll know that they're giving out 15 autographed Ollie Lang #17 jerseys.

      Yesterday, I received a message from "Dave Youngblood" saying that I have been randomly chosen as one of the Asian winners. I checked the profile of "Dave Youngblood", and he only has 6 friends.

      Anyone out there who has received the same message on Facebook? Could this be the real deal? Or is it just a scam?

      Please leave a comment on what you think...
