Review: I noticed this paint showing up at the local pb stores so I thought I would try it. Let me state that I play woodsball 100%. So accuracy and distance are very important. So I went to my field and my son and I played with the paint all day. The first thing I noticed was when I had a clear shot on an opponent about 50-60 feet away, I would take the shot and miss. I would then get stuck in a fire fight and get hit even after unleashing 20-50 paintballs at the offender. I thought it might have been my barrel or the paint to barrel size match. I rechecked everything and played a few more games with the same frustrating results. So I took gun barrels and paint to the range.

What I found was that the paint would fly straight for about 40-50 feet then curve off in random direction left right up down and even corkscrew (I've never seen a paintball do that). I shot over a case of paint. I used an old longbow titanium barrel, a dye ultalite barrel and a kaner barrel all sized to the paint. The best results were with the kaner. However I could only get about 10 more feet of accuracy.

This was pitiful.

Well I thought it might have been a bad box so later on I went to another pb store and bought another case. When I shot a bag out of this case the results were similar. But this time I was getting breaks about every thirty or forty balls. When I examined the balls I noticed that some were distended they were not round but oblong in shape. I figure that these were lodging in the barrel and breaking.

I then had a third experience with this paint. I went on vacation and went to a local field. They only permitted their paint. Guess what their paint was? You got it.
They also had signs declaring that they would kick you off the field if they caught you using another type of paint. So as much as I hated it I had to buy another case.

After playing a few games and just getting frustrated I looked around at the other local players they all had bags of the same paint. But as I continued to watch they kept going back to their vehicles between games. I soon realized they were filling up with their own paint. So I asked them what the deal was and was told by everyone including the ref's (who overlooked this discression) that this paint sucked and they didnt like putting it in their guns.

I hope I do not have any more experience with this paint.

I almost forgot I found in one case that the paint was actualy stuck together and I had to hand sort it before I could use it. Paintballs stuck together sure messes up a Halo. I believe I ended up throwing about 200 balls away.

Thge last bags of paint I have are useless I cant ever use them for target practice.
Conclusion: I would reccommend Monster ball over this paint. If you dont have to shoot over 30 feet or like getting tagged then this paint might work for you. Or if you are playing against me I would reccomend this paint. But if you want accuracy, distance and consistency in your paint dont by this junk.

I'm sorry you've had such a bad experience with this paint. My local field only allows us to this and I've had a similar experience missing an opponent who was around 50 feet away.

At first I just thought my accuracy was getting worse but I realize now its the paint. Its extremely frustrating with a pump gun when you only get a couple shots off before you get 20 sent your way.
