Period of
Product Use:
Only tested
3 years

Weaknesses: Not winter paint designed for Canada.
Frostbite chops in *cold weather.
*Cold weather = -20C.
Review: The Facts:
Date:Sunday March 2, 2008
Location:Canada, Alberta
Temperature: -12C without windchill and it was close to -20c with windchill Thats a bit below 10F
Number of Players: Around 150-200
All guns running compressed air.

All our paint was stored in warm locations until being used on the field.

Me and my 9 friends from our team attended the local Young Guns Paintball, Winter Scenerio. I brought an SP8. My friends also had problems with their various guns, which included a Spyder Fenix, 98 customs, SP1s, SP8s and A5s. We used FROST BITE paint. FROSTBITE IS RATED FOR +10C the box says in very fine print. Well +10 just happens to be spring and fall temperatures where I live. Alberta, Canada gets cold and has real winters that can drop into the -20 to -30 areas. A5s and X7s chopped paint, not only in our group but any gun that had a cyclone shredded paint. My friend bought an A5 to replace his frozen 98 and it helped for about 15 minutes or so before the gun got cold and started chopping.

We have also used Frostbite in the summer and it works fine.
Conclusion: Using Frostbite in a Canadian winter is just as the name implies, about as painful as getting frostbite in real life. Well at least we know the +10c on the box in the fine print is right on the money, but the fact that Frostbite is marketed as "winter" paint caused alot of pain and suffering for the whole winter scenerio game.

I gave a 2 only because it works in summer but forget cold winter play.
