Review: I had just bought my new ion and was eager to get out there and play some woodsball. I went to my local pro shop and asked what mid-grade paint they would recommend me to use around the $45/case range. They went through a few and then said you can't go wrong with Nelson. So I bought a case of the Nelson Hot Spot's with white fill.

Man were they wrong. Nothing was good about this paint. It cost me $45/case and almost 25% of the balls had large dimples and blisters. This caused the paint to be very inaccurate when trying to shoot a target. The balls would curve sometimes 10 feet from where I was shooting. The balls with the blisters was causing me to chop paint all day long. I probably chopped 12 balls during the day. This is not supposed to happen with an Ion. I cleaned my gun many times that day, especially the eyes. I got fed up with the performance of the paint and bought some Zap - Spank from the field and man what a difference. No chopped balls and accuracy was what is was supposed to be with a stock barrell.

I hate to have to write a review such as this, but I don't want anyone to waste their hard earned money on this paint. Buy something else.
Conclusion: Do not buy this paint. For $45/case there are many types of paint that are good choices. Maybe I just got a bad case but I will not ever try my luck with the HotSpot's ever again.

I would give this paint a 0, but the lowest I can go is a 1
1 out of 10
