This paint (I'm using the field paint version - premium I believe, not premium +) rates very well against the other field paints - up there with the best

Recommended
Barrels:
Medium bore to large bore dependent on weather conditions
Strengths: -Lower price for a above average paint

-Above average consistency

-Breaks on your opponents, not in your gun -- This weekend our team went through 5 1/2 cases of Kick'n in a tournament - I don't believe any one of us had any breaks in our guns. I did have several bounces on me in one game, but they were shot from so far away that they would have bounced on just about anything. I was playing back and all of my shots that hit my opponents broke (loaders, arms legs, and side of body) from medium range.

-Works exceptionally well as a field paint -- The field I play at (Operation Paintball in PA) primarily uses Kick'n paint and rents Pro Lites. I play there every weekend just about. In the past 6 months of playing and all of the players I've played against I have seen very few breaks in the rental guns for the volume of paint they push through them - and the accuracy of the guns seemed to get better as well!
Weaknesses: -Size fluxes a bit dependent on the weather, but what paint doesn't???

- Field paint isn't quite "top shelf" consistency, but I guess that's why they call it field paint, huh. They make higher grades of paint though, which I want to try.
Conclusion: Good multi-role paint to buy, especially when you take the price into consideration! I'm rating it as a field paint and giving it a 9. If I was rating it as tournament or high end paint I would probably give it a 7 or 8 for not being as consistent as possible (but take into consideration I am yet to shoot the high end version of this paint - I've only shot the field paint end)
Rating:
9 out of 10
