Redwolf Airsoft are authorised retailers of their products, so rest assured that you will be getting the genuine article when shopping with us.

Note that we still carry Phantom branded products in our stock and when you purchase with us, you may get products labeled as Phantom or PANTEC. Both brands come from the genuine manufacturer. RedWolf is an authorized dealer for Phantom / PANTEC so rest assured that when you shop with us, you are getting the real thing. Beware of counterfeits, which are widely available on the market.

So that's who Pantac is... I kept seeing their stuff listed, come out of nowhere. Figrued they were some new player. Their PACA looks shitty compared to KA's.

PANTAC sounds like a blending (pun possibly intended) between tactical gear and cooking utensils. This would bring new meaning to 'pot helmet'.

PANTAC is a acronym for Phantom Tactical. I guess PhanTac made them think to much of Funtac.

The only reason they probably made the change was because the brand is now registered by commercial law.

Or perhaps it's a result of LAWSUITS against Phantom and decist orders against PHANTOM INDUSTRIES creating knockoff products of EAGLE gear.

Panther to Pantac

Nothing really important, just thought people would like to know that Panther is changing their name...
