The LuXe -The Rolls Royce of Markers





Press Release - Luxe Tournament Debut



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Luxe to debut at Huntington Beach tournament.

New design and distribution philosophy to bring forth technological
advancements in professional level paintball marker.

March 29, 2008 - DLX Technology is proud to announce the tournament
debut of the Luxe professional tournament paintball marker at the 2008
NPPL Super-7 World Series tournament in Huntington Beach, California,
March 28-30, 2008. Some of the best professional paintball players in
the world will gain an edge with the ultimate luxury paintball marker.

"We knew making a product that would take things to the next level
required a whole new approach," said DLX Technology director Darryl
Trent.  "This allows us to redefine everything involved with the
marker from concept and design to how it is built, how it arrives in
the customer's hands, and even how the player is taken care of
afterwards. We began this journey over two years ago, and I am excited
to see the results in action."

Under the leadership of the DLX Technology group, the combined efforts
of designers, pneumatic, mechanical, manufacturing and software
engineers, multimedia developers, linguistic specialists, professional
paintball players and leading paintball field and store operators have
culminated in the development of the ultimate luxury paintball marker
- a synchronization of style, raw performance and unparalleled
customer support.

Design of the Luxe started with a clean slate by championship winning
pro players from the NXL and NPPL defining their needs - especially
those that were not met by today's markers. Speed, consistency,
accuracy, gentle handling of brittle paint and a coxxxct form factor
were given, but the missing elements were not so obvious - speed of
maintenance and ease of configuration. In today's paintball
tournaments every second in the staging area between points or best 2
out of 3 matches is critical, and that is where current paintball
technology has fallen short - until now.

The valve and air handling systems of the Luxe eliminate common
failure points and provide for full cleaning and lubrication of the
bolt, valve, ball detents and anti-chop components in seconds, without
tools. "It really is unbelievable," said Rocky Knuth, a professional
player and owner of the Seattle Naughty Dogs, who has had the
opportunity to rigorously test Luxe prototypes for several months. "I
can have the entire bolt and valve assembly out of the Luxe as fast as
I can pop open a can of soda."

Luxe innovations go well beyond the physical. The Luxe has been
endowed with new means of communication. Although it has all of the
programming flexibility serious tournament paintball players have come
to expect - it has done away with the complexity. Memorization of beep
and blink codes or carrying a manual to decipher them is unnecessary.

Features are not the only aspect to set the Luxe apart. From the
ground up, its high-performance alloy parts are machined in the United
States, by American workers using the most advanced manufacturing
processes available - a rarity in today's paintball industry. The Luxe
does not roll off of an assembly line. Instead each is hand built,
tested and adjusted one at a time at DLX Technology by a Certified
Luxe Technician, who is also an experienced professional paintball
player with the background to know by feel when a marker is in top
form.

Much like a luxury car, the Luxe is not a mail-order product. Luxe
markers will be available only through Luxe Certified Dealers who have
the staff and training to provide a top-quality customer experience
and post-sale technical support.

Developed as a focused high-end design and manufacturing group owned
by paintball industry leader Smart Parts, Inc., DLX Technology is
dedicated to melding cutting edge technology with solid tournament
performance to build the ultimate luxury paintball marker. To learn

Dear Future Luxe Owner,

Thank you for contacting us to request more information about the Luxe professional paintball marker.

For the last two years, we at DLX Technology have been working with the best mechanical, software, and manufacturing engineers, championship winning professional paintball players, industrial designers, and quality paintball service centers to build the ultimate luxury paintball marker. We are proud to announce that Luxe paintball markers, previously available only to an elite group of professional paintball players, are now in production and shipping to Certified Luxe Dealers around the world.

If you've played serious tournament paintball, you know what you need in a marker – something small, light and fast that won't break down or leave you stuck in the pits cleaning when your team is taking the field. The Luxe delivers.

In the game, the Luxe is fast, accurate and quiet. The Luxe will never be sidelined from a blown hose or leaky hose fitting, because it has no hoses – on the inside or the outside. Take a heavy dive into the mud in the finals? Cleaning the Luxe is no problem. The Luxe Power Core, its self-degassing valve system, pulls out in under a second with no tools or dry-firing required for complete cleaning access.

Computers make life easier, right? We think so, and we weren’t satisfied with the idea of packing an instruction manual in our gear bag to program a paintball marker. Taking full advantage of parallel processing technology, the Luxe circuit board uses a simple joystick interface and voice menu system to walk you through the adjustment of its various settings – it's that simple.

When it comes to professional paintball, Rocky Knuth of the Seattle Naughty Dogs has been there and done that. From amateur titles in the Great Western Series up to the professional ranks in the NPPL, PSP, NXL, Millennium series and a World Paintball Championship victory on ESPN. Rocky was also one of the first players chosen to use the Luxe in public view.

“The Luxe is another step beyond anything else,” says Knuth, “You've got to see it and hold it to understand. It's got high-end performance. It's fast. It's quiet, and it doesn't kick, at all. But more importantly, it's so much easier to use and take care of. You don't need a computer science degree to program it. I can degas it and pull the bolt and valve out for cleaning as fast as you can pull just the bolt out of a stacked tube gun. When it comes to the ball detents – forget about it - no other gun is faster to take care of. When we're in the staging pit at a pro competition, we have to get things turned around fast. Every second counts, and the Luxe is just flat-out faster than anything else.”

In the coming weeks we will be expanding the DLX Technology web site – LuxePaintball.com – and we invite you to visit regularly for additional insight into this amazing new marker, and to see the quickly growing ranks of Luxe Certified Dealers – locations where you can find factory-trained service, support and guidance – and the only places you can find a Luxe.

Included below, please find additional information about the Luxe and its features, as well as a link to a sound recording of the Luxe power-up sequence.

Thank you,

Darryl Trent – Coordinator, DLX Technology Group
 
******************************************

Luxe Feature Background Information

Simple Programming with Speech Feedback – While the capabilities of the Luxe software are immense, players don't need to have attended a computer course at MIT to program it.  A five-way joystick micro-controller, combined with a voice and LED feedback menu system, makes timing adjustment or selecting a league based firing mode a snap. There is no need to rely on memorization or to bring a manual to the field in order to decipher complicated blink or beep codes as the Luxe guides the user through its menu system by speaking in plain English, with key menu items and prompts also in Spanish, French, German or Russian.

High-Speed Cleaning/Maintenance   – In the staging pit while the clock is ticking, every second counts, and time lost in cleaning or maintenance can cost a point – or worse, a game. Popping the contoured release latch on the back is all that is needed to de-pressurize the Luxe Power Core and slide it out of the marker for fast pull-through cleaning of the body and barrel.  No dry-firing or tools are required. Nothing needs to be unscrewed.  One move and that's it – the bolt and valve are all out and accessible for inspection and cleaning.  The three main components of the Luxe Power Core also disassemble for o-ring inspection and lubrication with no tools required.  There are no screws, springs or small parts to lose in the process. Other paintguns may have a bolt that can be removed quickly, but no other marker comes anywhere close to the lightning fast, tool-free field stripping of the bolt, exhaust valve and ball detents found on the Luxe.

Easy To Clean Detents and Eyes – Ease of maintenance doesn't stop with the valve and bolt.  The Luxe ball detent carriers double as the marker's eye covers.  Compact rare-earth magnets and integral multi-axis machined latches secure the detent covers through even the roughest game, but allow them to be removed in an instant without tools for inspection and cleaning.

Revolutionary 23 Degree Plunger Detents – Plunger style ball detents have become the standard for top-end tournament markers because they provide an unbeatable method of preventing double-feeds, even with the aggressive force-feed loaders needed for high rates of fire. Until now, marker designers have angled detents at 90 degrees to the bolt, so the bolt has to scrape against a rounded edge of the plunger or bearing to push it out of the way. The Luxe design team has angled the ball detent assemblies of the Luxe at 23 degrees to the bolt, so that the ball and bolt strike the detent closer to the direction it actually moves. The result is long detent life, less pressure on fragile paintballs, and smoother operation.

Hose Free Design – The Luxe will never miss out on a game due to damaged or loose hoses - because there are no hoses, barbs or hose fittings – anywhere.  Internal gas passages machined into the grip frame and receiver completely eliminate the need for internal low pressure hoses or even a macroline from the bottom-line to the regulator. The Luxe Integrated Air connection allows direct, hose-free mounting of the Luxe bottom-line style ASA, or the Integrated Air Micro System.

American Made – All machining of Luxe components is performed by American workers in a state of the art facility in Pennsylvania. The Luxe body, grip frame and structural components are constructed of 6061 aluminum alloy tempered to a T6 level to deliver over 42,000 pounds per square inch of tensile strength, complimented with chrome plated or hard-anodized finishes that provide both good looks and durability. There is no Luxe assembly line. Each Luxe marker is assembled and tuned one at a time by a Certified Luxe Master Technician.  Each of the Luxe Technicians is also an experienced professional paintball player.

Red Carpet Customer Service – Luxury car owners don't have to wait for their vehicle to be shipped. back to the factory for warranty repairs. Luxury paintgun owners shouldn't have to either. You won't find the Luxe for sale through bargain blow-out Internet and mail-order stores. The Luxe can only be purchased directly from Luxe Authorized Dealerships which are staffed with factory certified Luxe Service Technicians, providing full local warranty support directly to the customer.

Field And Tournament Modes – The Luxe is equipped with multiple firing modes ranging from straightforward uncapped semi-automatic to training modes, full-auto, multiple levels of rebound and specific modes for every major tournament series. Calculators and ROF timing tables are unnecessary to set tournament rate of fire limits, just select the mode, maximum rate of fire in bps, and the Luxe is ready to go. Luxe Firing Modes include:

Semi-Automatic (one shot per trigger pull)
Capped Semi-Automatic (one shot per trigger pull with adjustable Rate Of Fire limit)
NXL – (complies with NXL rules with adjustable ROF limit)
PSP – (complies with PSP rules with adjustable ROF limit)
Millennium – (complies with Millennium Series rules with adjustable ROF limit)
CFOA – (complies with CFOA rules with adjustable ROF limit)
Auto-Response (fires on pull and release of trigger with adjustable ROF limit)
Training Mode (helps train to achieve maximum trigger pull rate)
Burst Mode (fires a burst of 2, 3 or 4 shots per trigger pull with adjustable ROF limit)
Full-Automatic (fires repeatedly when trigger is held down with adjustable ROF limit)
Custom Rebound Modes (multiple rebound modes can be programmed - each with their own unique ramping characteristics)
Advanced Software Control – In addition to firing modes and rates of fire, the Luxe software interface provides complete control over everything from eye mode and bolt stick compensation to de-bounce levels and speaker volume, as well as feedback on rate of fire achieved and setting values.

Vertical Regulator – The Luxe Integrated Air Vertical Regulator represents the pinnacle of consistency and gas flow.  It has an exceptionally high flow rate, even in low-pressure ranges.  Its bi-directional ASA mount means there are no hoses to snag or break during a game.

Unique Bi-Directional ASA – For Luddites who insist on a macroline outside their marker, the bi-directional vertical regulator ASA works with either the hose-less Luxe Vertical Regulator, or is backwards compatible with the ASTM-F1750 standard, allowing use of after-market regulators. Considering how well the Luxe Vertical Regulator outperforms other vertical regs, we don't expect many players to make use of such a  “downgrade.”

Integrated Air System – Luxe owners can use the included on-off bottom-line grip integrated ASA system with screw-in compressed air systems, or the optional Integrated Air Micro System. The Air Integrated Micro is a 4,500 psi preset compressed air system that mounts directly to the Luxe Grip frame. With a design that allows the user to remove its cylinder to comply with air travel regulations, the Integrated Air Micro has the needs of professional tournament players in mind.

Air Mounting Options - No two players are alike. Some prefer their air system directly mounted on the grip frame. Others like it dropped a bit forward or back. Air rails included with the Integrated Air Micro provide flexibility in mounting position. No matter what the configuration, it's all hose-less.

Low Moving Mass – During its firing cycle, the Luxe has only one major moving part – its bolt – which weighs in at less than three quarters of an ounce.  With so little weight moving around inside – especially compared to stacked-tube poppet-valve markers, or designs with multi-piece spool valve assemblies - the Luxe is smooth as glass, staying on target at even the highest rates of fire. It is also incredibly quiet.

Conical Bearing Trigger Mount – The Luxe's silky smooth ball bearing trigger pivot is suspended, perfectly centered between a pair of conical alignment screws, delivering a trigger pull with virtually no side to side play over the entire stroke.

Externally Adjustable Trigger – Not only is the Luxe trigger completely adjustable for pre-travel, post-travel, activation point and resistance, but even in its side to side placement can be dialed in to the player's taste.  All adjustments can be made live, without disassembling the marker.  None of the adjusters are located on the trigger face, providing a smooth, continuous trigger surface for optimal player comfort.

Li-Po Battery – The advanced electronics in the Luxe are powered by an internal Lithium-Polymer battery pack.  Lithium Polymer represents the latest in rechargeable battery technology.  It has become the dominant battery system used in mobile phones and personal media players because it exhibits no charge memory effect, charges quickly and works well in a wide temperature range. It also provides significant power at a minimum of size and weight. A second Li-Po battery is included with the Luxe to allow for a fast change when charging time is not available.
 
Break-Beam Vision – The Luxe is equipped with what is quite simply the most reliable anti-chop system available.  The Luxe uses an optical break-beam sensor system to ensure that a paintball is completely loaded before firing, virtually eliminating the possibility of a chopped ball. Operating at a wavelength of 630 nanometers, the Luxe Vision system detects paint that can fool longer wave infra-red "eyes.”

High Performance Barrel – The Luxe is equipped with a 14-inch Luxe 3-piece barrel. Optional bore sizer inserts adjust for optimal performance in any paint or weather situation without the bulk or weight of multi-back barrel systems.

Lever-Locking Feedneck – The Luxe is ready to clamp on to any industry standard hopper with a flip of the Lock lever.
