In 1994, world renown professional paintball player, Dave Youngblood, began making barrels in a garage with Earon Carter of Carter Machine. In the short span of time from '94 to '09, Dave has transformed DYE, or "Dave Youngblood Enterprises", into the pinnacle of performance paintball products. It all started with a single barrel, the Boomstick. It's name is relative to the effect it had on the industry as a whole. Now Dye offers anything and everything for the sport, from socks and squeegees to high end markers, electronic loaders, and goggle systems. Today, Dye continues to innovate within the sport of paintball; constantly raising the bar and releasing revolutionary products.
