It’s no secret that DLX’s parent company Smart Parts is undergoing a series of financial setbacks that have impacted its ability to function in the marketplace. With that being said, tournament players world wide have been wondering what the future holds for the Luxe, DLX’s flagship marker. With the slow economy, inventories of luxury items typically back up as buyers reign in their spending. Not so with the Luxe. If rumors serve us right, DLX has been unable to keep up with the demand for its premium paintball guns and they continue to fly off the shelves. With that being said, the rumor that follows may shock you.
Rumors have surfaced indicating that Dye Precision, maker of the competing DYE NT premium paintball gun and long time competitor of Smart Parts, has been contracted to manufacture the Luxe and help keep up with the demand. For what its worth, all signs indicate that DLX is still a completely separate company and is moving forward, full speed ahead. If true, this is good news. The DLX Luxe is by far and away one of the most popular paintball guns in the high-end market and we are happy to hear that they will continue to be available.
Please remember folks, this is a rumor. We have sent off emails to individuals within the different companies asking for further information and will update this story with additional information as it becomes available.
