Experience:

Products Used:
draxxus, tork, and various field paints, usually the cheapest they offered
Marker Setup: Cocker 04, stiffi 12 in. crossfire nitro 47 3000 revvy 12v. (yea, not so good...)
Recommended
Barrels:
any barrel. i found fires farther with my stiffi than my stock, but are about as acurate (if thats what you wanna call it) with either
Strengths: Noy many dimples, strong bright fill.
Weaknesses: Inaccurate, cannot store for more than two months even in airtight fairly cool containers.
Review: When the box was first opened, I found that the 14.99$ for the 1000 I bought was worth the price. Was accurate for about 75-150 feet, had bright thick fill. The shell was somewhat thick with a large seam, but they were decent for a woods/recball scenario. I only went through about 300 rounds or so of that stuff, and I didn't realize I wouldn't be going for the next couple of months. I stored 500 rounds of it in my ball-hauler, and left the rest in the bag it came in. I know that's not smart to do, but I have one of those instant bag sealers, so i sealed it with that. When I came back to the paint a couple of weeks ago, I noticed a few had leaked or popped without me noticing. the puddle in the bottom had a almost white mold growing on it. The balls at the top of the bag, although not affected by the popped balls below them, had perspired like there was no tomorrow. The amount of grease and oil on those balls was beyond belief. I got out my rags, and started to clean them off, I figured about 150 rounds were salvageable and it wasn't so much of a task. Once I was done with that, I got out my ball hauler. although the were not as bad as the bag, but were so grease that there were fairly big drops running down the side of the container. 500 rounds take a long time to clean. and it did. I also had about 10 of them break in the barrel (not sure which batch those 10 came from, but im assuming both).
Conclusion: The paint is fine if you are going to use it all right away, Perhaps some of the best for the price if thats the case. Not reccomending it if you're going on a speedball game with dynasty, but if you're messing around in the woods with your friends, then it's fine. DO NOT KEEP FOR VERY LONG.
