Playing With Reballs: Update

A while ago I wrote about a reball training session here in Penang (click here to read). This is an update to that post.

The place is a footsal arena, complete with benches and toilets.
Food and drinks are also easily accessible as the place is located inside a food court.

There is one condition though, spiked cleats are not allow on the field. Only flat-sole shoes are allowed. 

The address is:
Baru Maung Jalang Baru Foot Court / BB Futsal
No. 351, Jalan Baru,
Baru Maung,
11960 Bayan Lepas,

Approximately 5°17'38.48"N, 100°16'45.59"E on Google Map, right next to SJK(C) Wen Khai.

The field setup is almost done, here are some pictures to get you guys excited. For more details or to join, please contact Ming Wei at 012-4993499.

Bob Long Ripper Victory

OMG!! Look at this marker!

Bob Long came out with the limited edition "Ripper" Victory, with over-the-top milling. According to, the time it takes to do the milling on one marker is nearly 3 hours. Priced at US$1500 each, these markers don't come cheap.

The styling is really sick, but there's a drawback IMHO. Playing in muddy conditions with the Ripper would be a pain in the ass to clean up later. Imagine all the mud sticking on to the cut-out, especially after it has dried up, yucks...

Regardless, limited edition markers are always nice to have if you can afford it. :)

Playing With Reballs: Are You Interested?

Hello everyone. A fellow paintballer from Penang has gotten together a bunch of people to train using reballs. Everything is ready to go (venue, bunkers, netting, blower, reballs), all that is left now is looking for kaki, people to join in the fun. (you can't play paintball alone, can you...)

It will going to be cheaper in the long run for tournament players to train using reballs. The reball sessions are mostly private, but everyone is welcomed, just contact the person in charge and get an invitation from him.

For more info, contact MingWei at 012-4993499.

Energizer Night Strike

Have you gotten bored with paintball lately? (Well you shouldn't because it's one of the most exciting games out there!!) Are you looking for something fresh and out-of-the-ordinary in paintball? Look no further because the Energizer Night Strike is here!

Energizer Malaysia is organizing a speedball style paintball tournament. What's special is that it will be played at night, "completely in the dark with only UV-lighting and glow-in-the-dark paintballs." The tournament will be held over a few weekends in January 2011, with the finals at the end of the month.

I'm not sure if players will be wearing glowing jerseys while playing, but if they do, imagine Tron 2.0: Paintball Edition, it will surely be out-of-the-ordinary. For more details, visit their facebook page here.
