Hot Spot, for the price you pay, you're getting your money's worth. I used RPS Big Ball and the Hot Spot on the same day. With the Big Ball, one broke about every 50 - 100 shots, while the Hot Spots didn't give me any breaks at all. I'll go with the Hot Spot over Big Ball any day.
Hot Spot is a good paint for rec, it's cheap, better than most rec paint out there and is just a level down from Nelson's Anarchy (tourney grade).
