Review: I would say this has become one of my favorite paints. I was first introduced to it at a local field who carry the Nelson products exclusively. I had never heard of it before but I bought a case and was hooked. The accuracy is great out of my boomstick, I'd say it was up to par with most of the high end paints from PMI and Diablo. It is also very consistant, I shoot 1-2 cases a week and haven't broken a ball in over 2 months.

My team now uses this in tournaments and I haven't heard a single complaint from any of them. We've shot the Upheaval almost exclusively and have been very pleased. The thick, bright fill marks really well and you can see it across the field. Broken paint is also something of the past. We shot a wide variety of guns and configurations and breaks haven't been a concern for any of us.

The only complaint I have is that I've gotten some bounces when the heat and humidity get high. I live in North Carolina so the summers are hot and sticky. If it was more brittle like Inferno or Hellfire it would be the perfect paint in my opinion. The price is also very reasonable for the performance. I have shot more expensive paints such as All Star, Evil, Marb, Inferno and I can say the performance to price ratio is in Nelson's favor.
Conclusion: I would definately recommend this paint to both the tournament player and the rec baller looking for a good quality paint. I have been very pleased with the performance as have all of my team members. The accuracy is up there with all of the top quality paints but at a price that is very reasonable.
9 out of 10

Very good review obviously by a well educated person that knows what he's talking about. Not like some other 'kiddies' review. I have tried this product also and found it to be small but consistently round. I use a .690 Dye Ultralite. I like the paint and may order a .686 Dye just for this paint.

This is good paint. I use it in my tippmann and love it. The bright color helps a lot when sighting in your gun.

The fill in this paint is great, bright as the heavens, but it's a little big bore

Great review, this paint is definitely one of the best paint on the market. Shoots incredibly straight through my spyder electra with freak barrel kit. Just match up the bore size and itll shoot straight all day long, it also is a very thick and bright fill. I dont know why people think its hard to find this paint, just go to and they have like 3 different colors to choose from at a reasonable price.

Doesnt perform well in heat and humidity? I'm in AZ and its supposed to be around 108 with 50%+ humidity? Guess i will steer clear of these for now. :P
