I asked my mom to go to the local paintball store and buy me some Evil Paintballs. They cost 50 + dollars. Being the cheapo that she is, she came back with these. I was pretty angry but I decided I might as well use them. I put them into my fridge for storage (it is at a special temperature so the paintballs stay in good shape.) until I could get to the field.
Two days later, I went to the field. I was not expecting much out of these paintballs; there were a lot with minor dimples, which really annoyed me. However, the seams weren't too bad. I was SO mad the first game. My paintballs were curving so much. These really do stink.
Also, 2 paintballs broke in my hopper (really annoying) and one broke in my barrel. These really are NOT RECCOMENDED.
I do not reccomend these paintballs in any way. They were in dreadful shape and shot practically sideways.
Dispute: You don't specify what temperature your fridge is set at, but it seems likely that was part of your bad experience: Fridges cool AND dehydrate, very typically associated with dimples and fragile paintballs. I mean, you claim that this is your standard way of storing paint, but this doesn't seem advantageous to me. In other words - your bad experience can't be tied directly to the paint due to your unconventional way of storing them.
Dont store your paint in the fridge ! Fridges use condensators to cool the fridge this process involves water. Water and paint balls dont mix well. In short dont buy tons of paint in one go as it has a limited shelf life store it in a cool dark and dry place. And check your paint when you buy it if its is badly dimpled or sweaty send it back and get new stock.
