New 2012 Tippmann Products: 2 Markers and a Goggle

Tippmann has launched three new products at the Paintball Extravaganza today. We are on our way to view the products and will have video footage of the new products up later this week. For now, watch and read below for the press release sent out by Tippmann.

Tippmann – As we have mentioned in numerous emails about the Paintball Extravaganza, we are pleased to officially announce three major new products.

These new product introductions include two technologically advanced markers and a new goggle line, all offering patented or patent-pending features not currently available on the market.

Tippmann Crossover
On the marker side, we have the new Crossover marker with FlexValve technology. The Crossover is designed for the hybrid player looking for a lightweight, high-performance electro-pneumatic marker that can handle the rigors of woodsball, but can also Crossover to any style of play. And because it utilizes the FlexValve technology, it offers players the patented ability to switch from electronic to mechanical mode with the flip of a switch.  To check out the Crossover, go to http://www.tippmann.com/crossover.aspx

FT-12 Flip-Top Rental
The second new marker we are introducing is the FT-12 Flip-Top Rental. Tippmann has dominated the rental market for years, and now we revolutionized it with a new patent-pending design. The FT-12 has the durability and reliability fields have come to expect from Tippmann, and takes maintenance to a whole new level, reducing maintenance time by as much as 75%. (It can be disassembled without tools in less than 60 seconds.) We think this marker provides a great new look for rental users, and field owners will love it since it will save them time and money. This marker will only be a rental item and not available for players to buy.  To check out the new rental marker, go to http://www.tippmann.com/ft-12rental.aspx

Tippmann Valor Goggle
On the accessory side, we have a new goggle line designed by industry vet, Lester Broerfma, which includes several retail configurations and a rental version, which all feature a patent-pending quick-release lens system and high-performance Toroidal lens. These goggles provide a line that focuses on improved visibility, comfort and coverage. And the replacement foam system on the rental goggle is sure to save fields time and money.  To check out the new goggles, go to http://www.tippmann.com/valorgoggle.aspx

All the new products are currently projected to ship in late April to mid-May. Pricing has not been finalized for these items, but the new Crossover will be equal to or slightly above the X7 Phenom Electro version and the FT-12 Flip-Top Rental will be comparable to the current 98 Rental non ACT version.

All pictures and videos for these new products will soon be available on our new Tippmann Cloud Service. To see these new products in action, check out our new updated web site which will go live sometime today at www.tippmann.com.

    Tippmann is always doing something new. I like how their new rental marker looks like an Uzi.

    They keep pushing the whole "rugged" thing for woods play, but I wouldn't say tourney markers are any more fragile…aluminum is aluminum. And milled, anodized aircraft aluminum is better than cast aluminum any day.

    I know right they should follow and go light weight for woods ball too.
