BPS Sports Gears Up With the Spyder MRX Elite

After one of the most successful launches in mil-sim marker history, the Spyder MRX Elite continues to make headlines across the paintball industry, with stores, fields and teams alike lining up to add this exciting new marker to their arsenal. Just recently, Ralph “Tazz” Gonzalez, owner and founder of Bandit Splat Paintball (BPS Sports), one of the largest and most successful paintball stores on the West Coast, got his hands on the MRX Elite and wasted no time in bringing this unique marker to his customers.

“The majority of my business comes from players looking for the best woodsball and scenario gear that’s on the market,” said Gonzalez. “The MRX Elite gives me the opportunity to service all of my customers that are craving an affordable high-end tactical marker that combines both amazing features and cosmetic appeal. It has already become one of the fastest selling items I have, which is why I’m on the phone with Spyder Paintball constantly making sure it stays in stock on my shelves.”

In addition to his storefront, “Tazz” has also outfitted his own BPS Sports factory team with the MRX Elite, where they’ll be using the marker throughout the rest of the 2012 season. The team has already brought the Elite’s out during practice, where various members put it through its paces on a wide variety of terrain offered at the World Famous SC Village Paintball Park in Chino, CA.

“Our goal is to become one of the most dominant scenario teams not only in Southern California but also the country, and we’re confident the MRX Elite will help get us there,” said Gonzalez. “The boys love the Dual Loading System, plus we’re able to get close to a single case of paint out of a single air fill with our larger tanks, which is key during long scenario battles.”
