In a twist from our regular news and rumors coverage, we have opened up ProPaintball to all of the pro teams competing in the National Professional Paintball League to share their experiences at the recent Chicago Open. In the following days you will see updates directly from the Pro teams. These stories are designed to provide you, our reader, a window in which to view the pro teams from an angle unlike any other. ProPaintball – Pro Updates will feature a variety of information ranging from equipment performance to gossip to dealing with player injuries and suspensions — all straight from the mouths of the players, raw and uncut.

Our goal with this series is to further the discussion of professional paintball and provide an opportunity to experience and discuss with those at the top level of our sport. Kick starting the series off will be an update from pro team San Diego Dynasty followed by an update from Tampa Bay Damage. Please feel free to leave your feedback on the series in this article. Special thanks to Bart Blonski of the Russian Legion and Tim Montressor of Edmonton Impact for their recent reports on PSP Galveston and NPPL HB and help in pioneering the series.
