Review: Well most times I try paint as a at the local field whatever is mandatory sort of deal.
I got this paint from a woodsball field I don't frequent due to their high prices ($130 a case for this paint). Not impressed.

First off these balls were way to small bore for any of our guns, including the rentals so my cocker was resigned to having the occasional rollout. Balls broke very greasy and would absorb into anyhing worn in seconds....causing quite the frequent wipe accusations. I got shot in the butt during a run and checked but found no paint on my hand so I kept going. There was however a greasy mark on where I was hit from the paint absorbing really fast. By the end of the day no one had any paint marks on them just grease stains.

Flight pattern was quite inconsistent. With my clean barreled cocker (overbored for the paint) I could see sharp veers in any direction about 30 feet into the flight path (woodsball=no wind).....so most of my sure kills were aggravating misses.

The paint will break well enough on a solid surface, but any padding really extrapolates teh bounce in the ball. I shot a guy in the shoulder at 20 feet and it bounced off (he wore a t-shirt, bunny hug and thin coveralls).
Conclusion: If you get it cheap use it as it still shoots....but don't buy if you don't have too.
