Review: For a price of only $34 a case I wasn't expecting much. Most paints I've tried close to this price range just didn't work out quite well.
First thing I noticed when opening the box was the sealed bags. Sealed paint always stays fresher longer & with sealed bags you know the company that makes the paint is putting a little more work into their product. The paint was also very round & consistant, running in at around a .684. Now the shell is a little thick, but it's designed as a field premium paintball, not a tournament grade. The fill was also thick & bright. The paint I was shooting at the time had a bright orange fill, almost a soft neon color. Way brighter than what I expected for the price. Since this was a test for the paint, I figured I would give it the ultimate, full-Auto unlimited BPS. I loaded up the HALO & let it rip! Not one single break through the whole stream, very impressive. Next, I loaded it up for some accuracy shots. The accuracy was even better than I expected. Most every ball hitting the same spot. Now I don't expect every case a person uses will be as good as this test case, but even if it's half as good, for the price you can't go wrong.
Conclusion: I think Spectrum is worth every penny. It does have a tough shell, but on the good side, you won't break any paint. Out of all the field paints I've ever shot, Spectrum tops them all. As a Premium paint I would rate it a 7-8, but as a field paint I rate it as a 10.
10 out of 10
