Spyder 2000 (not a compact), 14 in. J&J ceramic barrel, cyclone 2 bolt.
My J&J 14 in. ceramic worked great!
CHEAP but very good paint, flies straight, bright fill.
I love this paint a lot. It was only $33 bucks a case AFTER shipping! I didn't get my choice of color though, but i got like a chrome shell with bright green fill. It looked awsome. I got 2 cases and not a single ball was broke. I used about 700 so far and i haven't broke any in my barrel. Its like a rec paint so they don't break on softer targets sometimes, but i really didn't have a problem with that too much. And they fly very straight if you have a clean barrel. I got some water in my barrel and it was like my gun was set on curve ball or something. One of the guys i played with ran out of his Maxim 2's and he wanted to buy my second case for $40. So of course I sold it to him, I can get another case in like 3 days anyway. I got mine from 888 paintball and i didn't have a single problem. The only bad thing about this paint was when I tried the bounce test where you drop a ball from 6 feet high and and see if it breaks. Well, it didn't do so good. So i took a ball and threw it lightly on the ground and it bouned about 10 feet high. but i did it again on the next throw and it shattered pretty good. Any way, this is now the only paint i will use. GREAT STUFF!
Like I said, GREAT STUFF!! This is the only paint I will buy from now on. Almost all of my buddies are gunna try in now too. And not just because of the price, but because it's good paint! I'm giving this paint a 10 because of the excellent price and the excellent performance for the price.
you actually want brittleness. The more brittle, the more breaks on target you get. But, Brittle shells are more likely to be effected by weather and can break in your gun easier. You really want a good barrel to paint match when using brittle paint. I think thats what your thinking of when you say hard. Cause most often people refer to thick shells as "hard." Thick shells are good for outdoor games cuz they resist weather changes better and hold together better if your shooting through light brush. I mostly play outdoors in unpredictable conditions, so this "thicker" shell works good for me unless it is really warm and humid. Warmth and humidity tend to swell paintballs quicker and that makes them softer, which makes them harder to break. Hope this was helpful!!!
