Review: In Denver NPPL this year we were shooting this paint and I have to say it is very nice paint.

With our cases I never experienced one problem with it, i.e swelling, barrel breaks, nothing it always shot straight and accurate.

First Impressions:
When we first opened the first case I looked at the paint and saw it was perfectly round and this was already giving me high hopes for it.
The shells we were using were green and silver and it had green empire logos stamped on the balls which I thought was pretty damn cool.

On field:
About 15 minutes later I got to see actually how well this paint would do on field.

Accuracy:
It was very accurate and consistent is shots. It didn't ever pinch in my barrel and my shots over the crono were very nice, around +/-3 instead of some other paints which if they pinch can go around +/- 8 or 10.
Another thing about the accuracy is that since it was nice and round I could trust where my balls were going. I didn't have to worry about a stray flyer while posting up on someone. This paint gave me the confidence to know that I could shoot at one area and never miss.

Breaks:
The shell ALWAYS breaks on target. I didn't see one bounce off a person that is. Sure sometimes they fly off the bunkers but on a person I didn't see one bounce while using this paint.

These breaks were on people NEVER once in my barrel.

Fill:
The fill is incredibly thick and ours was yellow. The yellow if tried to wipe just shows up everywhere because of how thick the fill is. It just looks like a big smudge and you can tell if someone tried to wipe a hit that you gave them.

A bad note on the fill is that it stains during the day. And some refs were calling people out on old dry hits. Luckily the stains wash out in water which is lucky.
Conclusion: My overall impressions of this paint is that while we got it for free, I would definetly buy it even though it's a little on the steep side, it's well worth the price for what you get.

I'm giving it a 10 because it's accurate, doesn't bounce, pinch, and has a nice fill.
