Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
I've used several products varying in prices, but for a fair comparison I'll just list other mid-range paints:
Stinger- Shell is too thick, poor fill
Draxxus Heat- not as consistent, decent fill
Pegball- good fill, not a very long shelf life
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5 with Autococker thread adapter, .689 St!ffi 14" barrel, Special Ops Dogleg Stock, PCS Remote line w/ slide check
Recommended
Barrels:
St!ffi, pretty much anything in t he .689 range, don't know about flatlines
Strengths: Great shell
Amazing fill
Consistent
Good shelf life
good in varying weather
Price
Weaknesses: There are paints that are all round better, but you'll have to pay more
Review: I play woodsball first off, so my entire experience with this paint has been outdoors at 275-290 fps.

I started using this paint about 6 months back, and I immediately noticed that for $40 per case it had amazing consistency, great fill, and good impact breakage. I'll admit I've fired better paint, but not often and then only when I was willing to spend at least 30% more for the paint.

As I said I play woodsball, and this paint is great for my purposes, it has become my primary paint, and only when it is unavailable do I buy other similarly priced paint. I have read alot of reviews complaining about various things from dimpling to poor fill. Honestly I have to say that these statements in no way reflect my experience.

I have used this paint in the heat of desert summer, through the fall and last weekend I played with it in a blizzard. The paint has stayed consistent through every season, and I have never had a ball dimple (of course I've never had an open case for more than a month and a half).

This paint always shows up great on my opponents, it is bright, thick, and has a great spread. Not only that but it has a great consistency in size. I currently have a .689 barrel and it has been a great fit through various batches.

Now while I don't need tourny paint, I have spoiled myself once or twice, with stuff like proball, and admittedly it is better paint, but the fact still comes back to that for the price Ink'd is the best value for your buck.
Conclusion: Ink'd is the best Rec paint I have used thus far, I would recommend it to anyone who is playing woodsball. If you're looking to get a consistency, good fill, and all weather usage, and you don't want to spend an arm and a leg, I'd give this paint a try.
