New ‘Crossover XVR’ Integrates Ten Performance Upgrades

Posted by Ron Goldblatt on Wed, Oct 02, 2013 @ 10:21 PM

Tippmann builds upon its Crossover platform after securing feedback from tournament players

  Fort Wayne, Ind. Tippmann is excited to introduce the XVR, a specially-enhanced version of the company’s Crossover marker. Launched last year, the original Crossover appealed more to woodsball players seeking a marker offering the ability to ‘crossover’ into tournament-style play. But, the new XVR takes Tippmann performance to an entirely new level and was developed based on feedback and suggestions secured by the company from speedball players worldwide. The result is an exciting new paintball marker specifically designed to deliver during tournament-style play.

Chris Coolen Takes Over as Tippinators Head Coach

Posted by Bruce Johnston on Fri, Apr 19, 2013 @ 05:50 PM

The Tippinators are excited to announce that Chris Coolen has agreed to coach the Tippinators speedball team through the rebuilding process this season.

Coolen is a former CXBL All Star with many years of paintball experience to pass on to a young group of eager players.

"I came to the Tippinators last season because I wanted to return to the real reason I play paintball - to have fun with a good group of guys but maintain a competitive balance." Coolen said.

Coolen has always been friends with Tippinator players and joined the team in 2012. "The Tippinators have always had an outstanding reputation as a first class, professionally organized team whose players are always seen smiling and enjoying the moment. That is what any sport should be about." Coolen remarked of the team. "For me to reach out to the team and ask to play last season was a no brainer."

For an exceptionally talented player, playing at the highest level in the country to hang up his cleats to coach a rebuilding team is a exception to the rule.

"Two years ago I suffered a torn ACL in my right knee," Coolen explained "Although I did play 2011 in the CXBL and 2012 in the MXL the injury has really taken its toll on me and that was a big factor in my decision to coach."

The Tippinators are getting a coach with a proven track record. Coolen coached in the past with the original Hammonds Plains team many of whom went on to become great players.

Of the teams he has coached in the past Coolen said "Seeing positive growth and transformation in the players makes coaching such a great experience. I really just want to pass on my knowledge and experiences so that they can get the most enjoyment out of the sport as possible."

Coolen is eager to get on the field with the Tippinators. "I want to bring out the best in the new Tipp players, identify where existing players can improve."

The goals for the team are simple. "We are going to set our sights high for the season and to be competitive. I want to coach a group of players that are going to take paintball as seriously as any other sport and who have the drive and hunger to be successful." Coolen commented

For Coolen the expression "work hard, play hard" comes to mind when he thinks of moulding a new team. The hard part he knows is in striking the perfect balance between fun and success. Coolen also knows that "If everyone can buy into the same system good things will come."

Tippmann Crossover Named Marker of the Year by APG Magazine

Posted by Erich Garbers on Tue, Oct 09, 2012 @ 02:39 PM

New demo program also launched at participating paintball dealers and fields

Tippmann Sports is pleased to announce that its Crossover paintball marker has been named “Marker of the Year” by APG Magazine. This designation was established to help recognize the most innovative new paintball products launched in 2012. The Crossover is one of just three products to be recognized this year and the only electro-pneumatic paintball marker in the group. In related news, Tippmann is introducing a new demo program for the Crossover, which allows interested players to sample the marker in a real-world setting prior to purchase.

From APG Magazine:  “One feature that is probably the most interesting is the ability to switch from electronic to mechanical.  You ask yourself how often you will do that…and  you realize the answer is a lot.”  With many scenario games lasting anywhere from 8 - 24 hours, this feature truly separates this marker from all others.  With the Crossover, players now have two great choices. For players who want the ability to modify their marker to their own unique look, there is Tippmann's X7 Phenom, but for those players looking for a lightweight marker they know can handle the rigors of woodsball and be used in a variety of game styles, the Crossover is a great new option to consider.

Based on the growing buzz and excitement about the Crossover, Tippmann wants to give interested players an opportunity to "test drive" it before purchasing. To do this, Tippmann has partnered with dealers around the globe on a new demo program, which lets players use the Crossover and get a true feel for its unmatched durability and lightweight design. Tippmann is confident that anyone who demos the marker will be impressed because it’s a technological advancement that gives all players the ability to go harder than before, while traveling lighter than ever.

Launched in early 2012, the Crossover is a high performance electro-pneumatic paintball marker designed to perform for players regardless of conditions or style of play. At the heart of the Crossover beats the latest iteration of Tippmann’s FlexValve – the exclusive industry technology that allows players to switch from electronic to mechanical mode on the fly, with just the flip of a switch. For additional details about the Crossover or the new demo program, please call 1-800 -533 -4831 or visit today. Demo locations to be added soon.
