Hybrid is Pitchmark’s new line: After working closely with a number of groundsmen at leading Premier League clubs, Pitchmark will be introducing their new Hybrid line marker at Saltex, complete with a lifetime warranty.
“A large number of stadium groundsmen use transfer markers for many good reasons,” says Mark Rodman, Pitchmark Managing Director, “it’s easier to lift the back wheels over intersecting lines, there’s balanced weight and groundsmen like to walk slowly. With a transfer marker you are using the same amount of paint no matter how slowly you walk.”
The problems with transfer markers, Mark points out, is that they only tend to coat the tips of the leaf, so to achieve the required result it is double marked. This means thick paint on the leaf which takes much longer to dry, and can cause ‘ghosting’ of paint over the pitch.
The Pitchmark Hybrid overcomes these problems with a three-wheeled design for ease of use, especially over intersecting lines. The Hybrid feels like a transfer marker to use and is supplied with a range of nozzles to suit the user’s walking speed.
“The Hybrid cone nozzles give perfect leaf coverage, “Mark says: “The thin coating of paint dries extremely quickly so there are no issues with irrigation, rain, or ghosting.”
The Limited Edition UK-manufactured Hybrid uses highly-engineered front discs as the front wheel. Designed for use with Direct and Ecoline+ low-volume, ready-to-use paints, the Hybrid also features adjustable line width to suit different competitions.
Pitchmark are taking pre-orders now and welcome groundsmen to come along to stand E125 at Saltex. You can call 01454 776666 or email email@example.com to arrange a demo. www.pitchmark.com
