Good tournament coverage
Not enough equipment reviews or tech talk
I have been reading this magazine for a whileand really love it. it has good coverage of pro tourneys and the writers actually know what their doing. They have a little tech talk and equipment reviews but not near enough. they do have plenty of funny stuff in their magazine and also cover some local and scenario events.
Overall a really great magazine but needs more tech and equipment stuff

Paintball 2 Xtremes is a great magazine. It is layed out well and is well suited for it's price of around $5 Canadian. It's not a very long magazine, but it's definately not short. There are many high quality photographs. And Ronn Stern includes a nice monthly comic strip. :) The only place I could find PB2X is the local paintball shop. Large grocery stores and (small) magazine shops don't carry it (or any other paintball magazines for that matter.) PB2X also contains NO annoying little 'fall out' ads, like in gaming magazines. All the content is well presented and well worth the time to read. I would highly recommend PB2X magazine to all (and any) paintball player, recreational, newbie, and tournament players alike.

A while back a friend of mine let me look at this mag and I've been hooked since!
It gives balanced coverage to pro and woods ballers. The shots from the photographers are the best I've seen. The gear reviews are awesome and explanatory. The interviews w/ pros and bigwigs of the industry are insightful and give you a heads-up. Don't worry about grabbing anything else, just get this mag.
If you want info (whether you're a newb or experienced) get this mag.

This mag gives a lot of cool facts (Ireally like the paint by numbers and all that stuff they put in the begining with that format.) The story's are entertaining but not funny. They haves some good photographers ( I liked the newest special pics issue with lasoya on the front.) overall a good mag.

I absolutely love this magazine. Anyone in my school can tell you that. I have 4 issues in my bookbag and almost every time i get a chance to sit, like right after a test or near the end of a class, I pull out an issue and start reading or just looking at the pictures. I've read this magazine since I started playing and I have no intention to stop reading it. Its also the most inexpensive paintball magazine I've bought. Its only about 4 or 5 bucks.
When your at walmart or a proshop, see if they have it and take a look through it. Its a great magazine.

Doesnt stand up to what i thought it would be
I was disappointed when I read the magazine. After all the hype Ive heard about this mag, I hated it even mreo when i read it. I was after good tech reviews with equipment but all i got was 2 pages of brief, crappy, descriptions of gear. what a let down. Im big into a magazine that has good tech reviews, but mag didnt have ANY tech reviews whatsoever. I was so mad that i gave the zine away. I can get better tech reviews out of APG, which isnt even a good zine to begin with. although these are the only two zines ive read, im greatly bummed about the lack of stuff in here. PB2X, you fail
Sometimes I am turning the pages so intently that I get a paper cut.
I really like the multi part articles like "Cheaters Among Us", and "Women of Paintball". There are others that I've read on the economics of paintball, the history, and more recently reffing. These are great in depth looks into our sport and its inner workings.
Also the pics and tourney coverage is excellent.
I dig the new look. It may not have been completely necessary, but it's good to freshen up and change styles once in a while.
The TV show was great also. Gee, it's too bad there aren't anymore DVD's. Ahem.
Get this mag. Get the DVD's when they reappear. Or if.
Action Pursuit Games. PB2X is so much better, pictures, articles, and everything else.

Expensive for magazine subscription
This is the best paintball magazine you can get, to cut to the chase. The articles are very in depth and are very addicting. Once you read one article, you'll find yourself flipping fast through the pages to the next. The pictures are incredible. I even pull them out and hang them on my wall. There's not a single ad in the magazine that isn't paintball related. The center of the mag is based on the tournament side of paintball, while the back is based on scenario, so everybody gets what they want. $30 is a lot for a magazine subscription, but it's so worth it. Don't settle for anything else.
Don't go with anything else, PB2X is the way to go.
The evil omen is a great gun and is only slightly at a disadvantage in comparison to the indian creek bushmaster.

Good tournament pictures.
No information on guns.
This is a awesome magazine who ever takes the pictures diserves a raise. The product info is good but they could go into more detail on the actual equipment not just tell you the price. Personally i enjoy this magazine though that is only my personal opinion dont take advice from these forims try it out your self.
If you need a gun or are looking for upgrades this is a good magazine if you want info your just wasting your time
