    • Note: For those who don't know why Dan Colby of Air America is unhappy, here's the scoop. The American Paintball League, had only very recently agreed to allow 4500 psi systems on APL insured fields (the APL insured the World Cup). The agreement allows both Paintball Mania and Air America 4500 psi systems to be used, as both companies have indemnified the APL with their manufacturer's insurance. The APL also provided the compressed air fills for the World Cup. The continued position of the APL has been that 4500 psi systems should use different fill connections than 3000 psi systems to prevent accidental overfilling of the low pressure systems (which would rupture the safety disk). Air America uses one fill nipple for both, while Paintball Mania uses separate styles. At the World Cup, the APL would not fill Air America 4500 psi systems unless they had and adaptor attached to allow them to use the 4500 psi Paintball Mania style connection. These adaptors were being sold for approximately $19. Many players were upset by this as the vast majority were using Air America systems. Many commented that the safety argument did not hold water, as the PMS adaptor could be attached to a 3000psi or 4500 psi system causing the same dangers. In prior events, where Air America has provided the fills, they have filled both Air America and PMS systems, with no additional costs.
