WDP and WGP are things of the past. Smart Parts "closed" their doors, wink, wink, really, they claimed bankruptcy or something like that to avoid prosecution on something, then moved overseas and now make the Shocker under the "SP" name. They claim that "SP" doesn't stand for Smart Parts, but nobody buys that BS. GI is definitely the biggest, but Planet Eclipse and Dye are still around. Bob Long got bought buy some company called Field One, and they've done nothing with the name. AGD is still around.

Yeah, I remember something about the turmoil Smart Parts caused back in their final days. I'm glad that GI has nothing to do with SP. I looked at Eclipse and, aside from their PAL thing, I'm kind left wondering what's happened to the styling of their markers. I used to love their cockers and the first few generations of non-cocker markers (Ego?) but their stuff now doesn't look all that nice to me. Might just be me not moving with the times. I kinda dread to look at what others are doing.
