Black Arrow-Precision Sterling
- last 100 produced
- spyder threaded
- Winchester 48 round hopper
- 3.5oz tank
Anything .689". The paint fits .689" bore very nicely. Custom Products or Lapco make excellent barrels. Stock Sterling barrels are nice!
toothpaste like fill
Cheap ($47 at pbgear)
regular bore size
First off I have to say this paint is great. It is cheap ($47 at pbgear). Keep in mind this is Arrow's best paint and it is only $47. The fill is almost like toothpaste it is so thick. The colors are super bright, you can see th hits from far away. The shell is very brittle, so it never bounces. It never breaks in your gun though, I haven't had to squeegee my gun at all. The paintballs also fly very straight, I would even compare them to RPS all-stars.
Overall this is great paint. I think this will be the only paint I use from now on. Its so cheap and good!
Probably the best paint for the money. It compares to RPS Marbs and All-star, but they are $13 cheaper.

I hate this paint I just used it in a tourny tonight and it worked horrible for me but I poped about 40 balls out of 4000. Over all this paint worked horrible and when I would run up to the bunkers it would pop no matter where I shot the person or it would pop in my gun. Over all I think it is a very horrible case of paint!!!!
I wouldnt buy a case

This pretty good paint not amazing but not bad. There were one or two slightly wonky ones in the box but I didn't have any breaks although I hardly ever do unless I use really cheap paint. I was running this in my sp-1 and 98 c and had no problems.
Good value for money you can buy a lot worse or pay a lot more
this paint works great with my internally stock mini with halo b hopper. chopped 1 ball total. works great with mini set at 20 bps on millenium/ramp or anything. shoots straight, very consistent, soft shell, way softer than Diablo formula 13, but not near as soft shell as sterling pro.
Works good with many guns, good paint at reasonable price
I use my Tippmann Werks but i wont buy these paintballs ever again anyway
Cool looking I guess.
Not very accurate
Wow I bought these paintballs for 44.00 for 2000 at my local outdoors store and i have never wasted more money on paint in my life. They were the most expensive paint there. Unfortunately i didn't read up on these before i bought them because i think i counted about 50 broken ones in the bag. You may be thinking, "wow only 50 out of 2000" but then u have to realize the mess. since i had no ride back to the store i had to bite the bullet and clean all1950 balls left.
The performance wasn't even close to decent plus i have a really nice barrel for my gun.
I also learned that i could of bought Karnage Tear for 44.00 at my local paintball shop but its terribly far and gas is poopingly expensive.
Olive Pm5, Ultralight Barrel, Halo B V35, Crossfire 68/45
Anything i guess, I use a 14 Ultralight and a 16 Empire Twister
Shoots Straigt, Breaks when you hit someone
Chops in colder weather
Ok, i have used this paint in many different kinds of weather and the weather predicts how it shoots
About a mounth ago i went to play at some of the feilds near our my house and it was about 30 degrees when we started to play and it only got to be about 35 that day. If it is anything under 50 degrees you will break a Ball every once in a wile. Not that big of a deal...
This last weekend i went back to the felds and played with this paint again.. It shot perfect, i didnt break one ball all day and it shot straigt as an arrow
This is awesome paint if your gonna play with it in warmer weather i would deffinetly recomend it for anyone with any gun. I give it a 9 out of 10 because nothing is percect
Empire Ramp, Viewloader Paint, DBX by ZAP, WGP practice grade, X-Ball Bronze
Spyder TL-R, Tippmann A-5 w/ Allen Rifle Sling
Break on contact
Some Break in marker
The Price I Paid
I used this paint in a tournament in Maryland once. It was pretty good, espically with the Tippmann A-5. The color is nice and bright. I liked this paint, but there is better stuff out there, I know.
When I shot a round on a float, normal paint sometimes bounces off, right? With this stuff, NO! These rounds broke on contact. I think these are good for small tournaments because of what I paid for a case. $65 bucks a case!
If you can find this paint anywhere cheaper, get it!!

1) Dark Timmy (Desert Digi Camo w/ white parts), Dye UL's (matching ano'd), White Reloader B, Crossfire 68/45
2) SL66 Ego (Krypton Ice), Green Reloader B, Crossfire 68/45
Breaks on target
Doesn't fly straight past short distances
Let me begin with this, this alone is enough to kill the rating for this paint, I went thru about 1600 rounds and EVERY SINGLE ROUND that I looked at up close was dimpled or dented. Anyone with any real paintball experience or knowledge knows that this makes or breaks a case of paintballs.
And it wasn't just my case everyone that I went with that used this paint had the same thing with their cases. All dimpled or dented.
**For those newbies. Dimpled/Dented paint won't fly as straight as perfectly round balls. They have a tendancy to drastically drift.***
Aside from that though the paint did break on target, though ALOT of bounces were expereince that day. I think I had atleast 2 to 3 bounce of me in each of about 3 or 4 games.
The fill as decent. Not to watery, it left a good marking on targets.
Personally I wouldn't ever buy this paint unless I had no other choice but to do so. When I used them it was the field paint the field choose so I had no choice. But this paint can definitely effect your games. Effect them enough to turn what should be a victory into a defeat.
-Freak 16' SS kit
-Empire Reloader B
-Hammerhead II LPR
-FBM stilletto drop/ ASA
-It's cheap as most brown box stuff, but has better quality
-bore size differeed aLOT (.687 to .693)
-might chop if your pressure is too high
my home field always sold brown box, or if you wanted to spend a little extra, diablo paint. i always liked the diablo it flies straight and is sizes nicely with my freak. lately they introduced sterling rec, game, and pro. i bought a box of the game ($40) thinking "sweet deal... and can jus burn this ish away!" I was wrong. One-balling it was fine... but once i got it over 10 bps, it started chopping like a mother. It chopped so bad, paint was oozing out of my detents.
It depends, if your gun is your baby and you need to shoot your lanes; this is terrible paint. if your just playing out in the woods with a tippy, go for it; it's cheap and flies pretty straight, just make sure you have a large barrel.
