Enhanced Trigger for Crossover


Tippmann Offers New Trigger Upgrade for Popular Crossover Marker
Enhanced trigger design lighter and more responsive

Fort Wayne, Ind. Last year, Tippmann launched its revolutionary Crossover marker – a lightweight, high performance electro-pneumatic marker designed to perform for all players regardless of conditions or style of play. Today, the company is excited to introduce an upgraded trigger for the marker, which provides a “lighter” and more responsive pull. The newly-enhanced trigger was developed based on feedback from players looking for a lighter trigger pull in both electronic and mechanical mode. The new trigger will be integrated immediately into all new Crossover markers shipped from Tippmann’s Fort Wayne facility. It is also now available to all Tippmann dealers as well as any player who already owns a Crossover. To secure a free upgrade kit, players simply need to visit Tippmann.com and click on the “Free Upgrade Kit” icon located on the homepage.

“We lightened the weight of the trigger by over 65 percent. And, by doing that, we were able to decrease the trigger pull by 50 percent,” said Denny Tippmann, Jr., senior vice president of research and product development for Tippmann Sports. “The new trigger is factory set at 4 oz. and meets all ASTM standards. We think players are going to respond very favorably to this enhancement. It makes our popular Crossover even more responsive and easier to fire.”

The new trigger has been tested by many top scenario teams, including the Tippmann Effect, who will be using the Crossover with the upgraded trigger in the upcoming NPPL event in Huntington Beach. Of course, Greg Hastings will also be playing the enhanced Crossover during this year’s Tour of Duty.

In addition to the enhanced trigger, Tippmann also recently announced a lower price for the Crossover. The industry-leading technology is even more accessible to players everywhere.

“We lowered the price on the Crossover so players could take full advantage of the unmatched combination of speed and durability offered through the Crossover at a great value,” said Ron Goldblatt, director of marketing for Tippmann Sports. “Of course, we also wanted to continue doing our part to keep paintball affordable and fun for players everywhere.”

2013 Black Friday A Great Day of Ball

The unofficial opening event of the 2013 Atlantic Canadian paintball season, Black Friday, was held on Friday March 29th at Mersey Road Paintball in East River Nova Scotia.

Black Friday is unique not only because it draws all styles of paintballers on to the same field but because it is the first large event of the year. Black Friday is the first chance players have to rekindle friendships and bang the rust off the paintball skills.

"The paintball gods are smiling on us today," said James Langlois, owner of Mersey Road Paintball, "A spring storm made the field unplayable a few days ago. But the sun came out, cleared up the snow and made a perfect day for paintball."

The official event registration of 209, and an unofficial head count of close to 300, continues to make Black Friday one of the largest games in Atlantic Canada.

The game ran in two 90 minute halves, immediate respawn, with the teams switching ends at half time. At the half time lunch break, raffle and door prizes (provided by Tippmann Sports), were given out. The immediate respawn made made for non stop action all over the field coupled with prizes for players made the day a success all around.

In many areas paintball participation has been in decline. The exact opposite is true for Atlantic Canada paintball. The increase in players at Black Friday, expansions teams in the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League (ATWL), and the new Eastern Paintball Players League (EPPL), proves that the game of paintball is stronger than ever.

"It is great to see so many players out today." commented Ben Van Horne of the Tippinators "With this many talented players out for the first event of the season bodes well for the competition at the ATWL and EPPL this year. It is going to be a great season."

The true attraction of Black Friday is that paintballers be they; woodsballers, recballers or speedballers, can gather for a day of fun before players gravitate back to their preferred style of play.
