Review: I have played with this paint for the past three or four times I've played. I know it was first choice, but not which variant of it. I got shot alot while playing, mostly from reffing (since the field sponsors my team I drop by to reff and do odds and ends things for em) They left large splats on my clothing that was large enough to notice even totally across the field. The fill wasn't the thickest I've seen, but it would have been hard to wipe. (hard not impossible, I heard that someone was wiping during a game, I wasn't reffing that game, nor did I see anything, but my frontman said that, and I trust his word. It is wipe-able, but it would still be hard. The MAJOR weakness of this is the bore size. For some unknown reason I was able to shoot it without a bust in my old A5. The captain of my team had to run back to the proshop and borrow their freak kit. He chopped with every size but the .695 and it was new paint. I recently got my new BKO, and as some of you know it has a step bore barrel. I got it completely stuck in the barrel. I had to push it out using a long wooden paint brush. The paint is so large that there is a good chance that you will bust many of them. The shell is kind of brittle. Which is good in the sense that I think it busted on every hit. But it also means that there is more of a chance for them to bust with such a large bore.
Conclusion: Unless you have a nice large (and I do mean large) bore barrel this paint will be more trouble than it is worth. On the other hand, if you do have a large bore barrel this paint can be great. Seems to be pretty accurate, hard to wipe, and a good shell. I would suggest this to anyone with a large bore barrel (at the smallest a .693), but I would suggest you steer clear of it if you don't.
