Anything, really. I used a Titanium Paintball Longbow .689, and they were perfectly accurate, but my friend used his stock Spyder barrel and they were still decently straight (for a Spyder).
When I got to the field last weekend, I was in need of paint. I asked what kind of paint he had, and to my demise, I heard he had Heat. I've heard so many horror stories about this paint I've lost count. However, at 40 a case, this was some of the best paint I've ever used.
I filled up and went out to the speedball field. Off the break, I saw the "Stingers" my buddies had brought curving all over, but my lane of Heat was right on target. After gogging two and bunkering another, the rest of the team was shot out. I tried some target practice, and noticed again that these were spot-on. My only trouble was that the fill left something to be desired; the orange fill could have been brighter. However, it was still easily visible, and was at least consistant.
During the second game, this paint disappointed me. I pegged a guy right on the head, and I thought he was out so I moved up. Sadly, he sprayed me because the paint didn't break. I took out about three balls and dropped them from about chest-high onto the cement. Two out of three broke. I dropped some of my friend's Stingers, and all of them broke. These had a thicker shell, a lot like PMI premiums, which isn't bad if you need that sort of thing for a Spyder or a Tippmann, but it didn't help me being a back with a Timmy.
Those are my only gripes, the shell is a bit thick for high-end guns combined with back players, and the fill could be a bit brighter. After a full day, I shot half the case (yeah, I'm conservative on paint.) and didn't have a single break. This is probably due to the harder shell, or even the marker, but it still made cleaning a lot easier.
This paint is great for practice of any kind, but especially for the the mid-to-low end guns, because it has a thick enough shell and won't break from the blowback action. It's also very round, very accurate, and had no dimples throughout the case. However, if you are a back player in need of tournament-grade brittle-shelled paint, don't even think about buying Heat. Your team will hate you for trying to save a buck and losing the tourney because of it.
