We’ve received word from Pro Paintball insiders that Sacramento XSV has added players to both the PSP and NPPL rosters. Read on for official confirmation as well as a few words from Rich Telford and Junior Brown.
Check out the first look of XSV players shooting Aliens. Pro Paintball caught up with XSV’s Junior Brown who had this to say:
We have been testing the Alien Paintball gun for a few weeks now. This weekend was the first time all the players on the team have played with them and it was a good weekend to get the players thoughts as we played the Ironmen both days. Over the weekend I was asking all the players to give me feedback on the guns so we can work with Jack Rice the owner of Alien over the coming months, but all I was being told from them are they shoot flat with next to no kick and they are very happy.

Pro Paintball teams from across the nation will be battling it out this weekend in Huntington Beach, CA. As this is the season opener, nearly anything can happen. Last year we witnessed several shockers including series leader DC Arsenal losing out to Oakland BLAST in the overall championship and relative new comers San Francisco Explicit winning matches against former Triple Crown Champions San Diego Dynasty.
This year, Vancouver Vendetta and Newport Entourage will be making their pro paintball debut. Throughout the off season, teams like Edmonton Impact, Tampa Bay Damage, San Diego Dynasty, St. Louis Avalanche and Los Angeles Infamous have been stacking their rosters with national champions from years prior. As we go into the first event, everyone here at Pro Paintball is very excited and we are all placing bets as to which teams will be leading the pack.
With all of this in mind, we are proud to open this story for your NPPL HB team predictions. If you are lucky enough to predict the top 4 teams in the pro division we will award you with a prize. Our prizes include T-Shirts from Sly Equipment, San Francisco Explicit and Pro Paintball.com, barrel wraps from Paintball Photography and DLX Technologies, and headbands from PBheadbands.com.
