Angel Teams Clean up in Millennium Series
At the end of 2001, Angel teams won the coveted World Cup and World Series titles, a major success and the first manufacturer outside of the US ever to achieve this. Immediately after the event the World Series winners Ground Zero left the exclusive WDP stable, and were not replaced.
10 months on WDP have launched the new Angel IR3, complete with the revolutionary new Opto trigger. The Angel is faster and more reliable than ever before, and Angel teams still dominate the major tournament series. The Campaign Cup in London, England re-enforced this dominance. Angel Teams took 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the Pro division, the first time this has ever been achieved by any manufacturer since the advent of electronic markers in 1996. A freak result perhaps? A one off? Perhaps not, as Angel teams also took the Series titles in Pro, Amateur and Novice, the combined result of outstanding performances in 5 separate competitions throughout the year. Again, this has never been done before.
The fact that WDP have achieved this kind of dominance while actually reducing the amount of sponsored teams on their books makes these performances all the more impressive. A WDP insider told us:
“It’s not that all the teams play with
Angels, it’s just that the ones that do finish higher than the ones that
don’t. We recognise talent, and we recognise aggression, we look to design
products that suit and compliment these qualities and will give a real
edge to our players and teams. We will never resort to illegal firing modes
or building velocity cheats into our guns, but certain manufacturers are
doing this and it needs to stop. In our opinion it is illegal, sad and
dangerous to both the players and the industry as a whole. We are obviously
happy with the Millennium series results this year, and would like to congratulate
all our teams on a great job”
COPS V2 AVAILABLE AT WORLD CUP
OK hands up if you thought the Angel IR3’s infra-red capabilities were just a fancy electronic gimmick offering no real advantage to the player. Everyone got their hands up yet? Ok well you had better put them back down again, because WDP just made the following press release….
WDP are please to announce that Free software
upgrades will be available at this years World Cup, updating existing IR3
circuit boards to the latest software versions, including an entirely new
version of the COPS (Crystal Operated Paint Sensor) as used by Dynasty,
Russian Legion and Avalanche in their emphatic 1,2,3 at the Campaign Cup
in London. Ir3 owners with Mem 2 boards will be upgraded to Mem 3, and
those with Mem 4 or 5 boards will get the brand new Mem 6 software. Both
Mem3 and 6 include the new version of the COPS system, which has been adjusted
to compliment the Opto triggers higher rate of fire. The new system, extensively
tested by Chris LaSoya, provides a chop-free feed that does not skip a
beat. COPS2 will shoot at 20 balls per second without pinching a ball,
is unaffected by light levels, debris or paint colour and still does not
require exterior components.
Players will also be able to upgrade to
the Opto Trigger board in Orlando. There will be a fee for this as it requires
a new board to be fitted due to the physical difference of the new switch.
This could allow players to move from Mem 3 to Mem 6 software and get the
very latest technology. Get there early, WDP’s booth is usually the busiest
one so this is going to be crazy!
Shoot like the Stars
Want your IR3 to shoot like Oliver Langs’, Alex Fraiges’, Chris LaSoyas’ or Rocky Cagnonis’?
WDP are offering free player downloads from their booth via an infra-red interface. All of your favourite players settings can be instantly beamed into your Angel, and with a few mechanical adjustments your IR3 will shoot exactly like theirs.
Warning - doing this will mean that you
can no longer blame your equipment when you lose, so make sure you arm
yourself with a few other excuses for doing badly at the event - just in
Ladies for Everyone
WDP’s Kreem Lady Drop Forward is now available
with a dovetail mount, and with a screw-in adaptor. Previously the Lady
Drop Forward has only been available for players using WDP’s air, but due
to the success of the product and high demand, the sexiest cradle in paintball
can now be used with most other air regulators, and even with C02 tanks.
The Ladies are available at a store near you, or from www.wdp-paintball.com
Tippmann A5 in Europe
The new Tippmann A5 is now available in
Europe through WDP, Tippmanns’ exclusive European partner. The A5, complete
with the all-new cyclonic hyper-feed, is capable of an incredible rate
of fire, looks just like an MP5, and of course has the reliability and
rugged functionality of all Tippmann products. WDP will be carrying all
necessary spare parts and dealing with the European warranties, as they
already do with the Tippmann Model 98 and 98 Custom models. To order, contact
WDP on +44 (0)121 328 2228, or e-mail email@example.com
WDP and Britain have another World Champ!!!!
How many of you knew that Britain has another World Champ.
Well we're telling you now. A friend of WDP's family and top downhill mountain bike guru, Steve Peat has just taken the UCI World Downhill Mountain Bike Cup. He headed the field of more than a 100 top international DH stars to clinch the title last week in the French Alps. Steve is sponsored by top UK bike makers Orange who supply him with his £8000 downhill monster.
Peaty is good friend of WDP and will be
headlining at a pro moto-x and downhill event in the UK in November where
WDP will be putting on a Paintball pro-am mini tourney. Top riders will
be pitting their paintball skills against a WDP select 5 man team. The
event will take place over 2 days (2-3 November) with bands, beer, bbq,
birds, bikes and the usual WDP buzz. If you need more info contact WDP
