PVC Reusable Paintball

It came to my attention that some of the local recballers shoots PVC reusable paintballs for their own recreation use. Now, the problem is xtion paintball forummr Myak, claimed that it is dangerous as it is hard. Although they (recballers) claim they only do target practice and shoots pests, this is just plain irresponsible.

Besides normal paintballs, it is recommended to shoot only Reball (TPE) or Rufus T2 T-balls even for practice, and still you have to chrono those to a safe 220-240fps. Reballs won't be accurate at higher fps than that and hurts even more. I've also heard of recballers tend to overchrono when playing and safety always take a backseat, and this you can see the photos all over facebook.

Dua Pelajar Cipta Baju Paintball

Here's something to do with paintball. Well, sort of.

Cipta Baju Paintball

RAJIN membelek buku fesyen antarabangsa ataupun melayari Internet merupakan antara elemen-elemen penting bagi seorang pereka fesyen menghasilkan rekaan mereka.

Bukan itu saja malah dunia rekaan fesyen amat berkait rapat dengan elemen-elemen kreatif dan imaginasi.

Nurul Su'aidah (kanan) dan Nur Syazwani
dengan rekaan baju paintball mereka.

Mereka yang berjaya menterjemahkan dua aspek ini dengan sempurna tidak mustahil fesyen yang dihasilkan mampu menaikkan nama pereka tersebut di mata dunia.

Gabungan antara kreativiti dan imaginasi nyata memberi arah tuju pada rekaan-rekaan yang dihasilkan dan itulah yang berjaya dihasilkan oleh dua pelajar tahun akhir Jabatan Seni Reka Fesyen, Fakulti Seni Lukis Seni Reka, Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Shah Alam, Selangor.

Bagi Nurul Su'aidah Russain, 23, dan Nur Syazwani Hasim, 24, mereka sememangnya perlu menghasilkan satu rekaan yang bertajuk 'pelbagai fungsi' dan fesyen yang ditampilkan perlulah memenuhi kriteria yang telah ditetapkan.

Menurut Nur Syazwani, setiap pelajar diberi kebebasan untuk memilih inspirasi bersesuaian dengan tajuk yang diberikan.

"Kami diminta untuk menghasilkan rekaan secara berkumpulan dan setiap kumpulan terdiri daripada dua orang pelajar sahaja.

"Sebagai pelajar, kami diberikan kebebasan sepenuhnya dan terpulang kepada setiap pelajar untuk menghasilkan idea dalam rekaan masing-masing.

"Sudah pasti, tugasan ini mencabar pelajar-pelajar untuk menghasilkan idea bagaimana hendak menghasilkan karya berdasarkan tema yang telah ditetapkan," ujarnya ketika ditemui di UiTM, Shah Alam, baru-baru ini.

Setelah bertungkus lumus membuat kajian selama empat bulan, Nurul Su'aidah dan Nur Syazwani telah tampil dengan rekaan yang kreatif dan unik iaitu baju permainan sukan lasak, paintball.

Mengulas lanjut, Nur Syazwani menjelaskan bahawa rekaan mereka bukan sahaja satu rekaan yang memberi pembaharuan daripada baju asal tetapi ia juga merupakan baju pelbagai fungsi.

Apa yang dimaksudkan dengan pelbagai fungsi ialah, selain mempertahankan diri daripada serangan peluru-peluru paintball, baju tersebut turut diadakan ruang udara.

Bukan itu sahaja malah bahagian hadapan baju tersebut yang berfungsi sebagai alat pertahanan boleh bertukar menjadi beg sandang.

Selain itu seluar panjang boleh bertukar menjadi seluar pendek (paras lutut) di mana bahagian bawahnya boleh disambung dengan zip.

Yang pasti, rekaan yang diketengahkan adalah hasil daripada idea-idea kreatif melalui proses penyelidikan dan kajian yang telah dijalankan.

Selain mengetengahkan rekaan yang pelbagai fungsi, kedua-dua pelajar ini turut menitikberatkan aspek pola, warna, tekstur, format dan elemen rekaan.

"Daripada segi warna, sudah pasti kami memilih warna-warna gelap memandangkan baju ini digunakan untuk sukan paintball. Pemilihan fabrik juga memainkan peranan penting tetapi di sini kami memilik fabrik yang mudah dibasuh atau lap sahaja dan untuk itu PVC menjadi pilihan," ujar Nurul Syazwani.

MPOC 2011 - My Say

To tell you the truth, this was my first time ever to play in Melaka. I had to miss the last three events there due to family matters, so when this opportunity came again, I just had to take it. And did I enjoyed it very much. Weather was hot, humid and occasionally breezy. The turf was in good condition and the venue is just superb. Situated right in the middle of the city, it offered a totally new paintball experience.

Now back to the event. I like what they did with the D1 preliminaries. All the games were played in the first day instead of splitting them into two days. It gives teams to rest and recover for knock out rounds on Sunday. X-Fox were on a bad roll when they couldn't get a decent result and Xtioneers snagged the last spot from them to be in the semis against Nemesis Legion.

In the other D1 semi finals, Demonz snaked their way into the finals by some crafty play in the dorito side against Ronins. The referees were having a hard time keeping up with the game so bad that UJ Junaidi had to call in the refs and remind them to do their job properly.

Xtioneers somehow pulled out a rabbit out of the hat when they came back to tie up with Nemesis 1-1 in the last 45 seconds and managed to bring the game into overtime in which they won it comprehensively. It's their first finals in two years, screamed Catherine ecstatically. They then met up with Demonz, the winner from the other semis and only to get steam rolled. Xtioneers had no answer to Demonz swift play in the finals.

In the 3rd-4th game, Ronin beat Nemesis Legion 2-1 in over time after both teams battled to a draw in regulation time. Nemesis fielded up their best line up to counter Ronin's best with STK players guested with them. Both teams played exciting and tough battles to the delight of the fans and spectators.

Prize giving ceremony was held right the players area and everything went smoothly except a no-show by Nemesis during prize giving ceremony. Winners were in joyful mood and it continued on into the night.

I was glad to see they have a lot more referees in field 1, especially in D1 and D2 games where its needed the most. And with a little tweak here and there, I'm sure we could see notorious run-thrus and blatant wiping can be lessen. Cheers to organizers and see you guys in Kedah.
