blue 03 vert autococker
pure energy 68ci/3000psi fiber wrapped
vbw bottomline setup
12 inch all american
my all american worked great
i have seen the freak work well but it always does
doesn't allways break on opponent
i use primers for weekend games at my local speedball course and not for tournys or anything. If you are going to a tournament don't go with primers go with evils or diablos. They don't break in my cocker and they have good accuracy. They preform well and they don't cost a lot of money.
i recommend primers for woods games and weekend games. Anyone looking for tournament ball at this price will have a really hard time.
Gameface Scorch - good alternative to Primer, great for price
Zap Tork - chopped like crazy
PMI Stinger - inconsistant sizes
Some paint in an unmarked white box, looked/preformed the same as Primer
XBall Bronze - probably the best overall
Worked pretty good with even stock Spyder Barrels. I used a .687 back with this paint.
Round (when new)
Broke most of the time on players
Doesnt last long at ALL
2 weeks later = dimples even after weekly rotation
I had been using this paint as a field paint for a long time, i was never disappointed with it either. It worked pretty good in the .687 back of my Empire, it went where i wanted it to go most of the time, with about 2 out of a hopper taking a nose dive into the astro turf, which compared to other paint i have used, wasnt a bad ratio at all.
I also used it 3 times before the eye was installed on my cocker, twice in X-Ball, once in Woods, and it preformed great all of those times. I dont think i got a chop in X-Ball and only a few in Woods, and my shots somehow managed to make it through thick brush and still break on players.
It also seemed to work great in my friends stock spyders also.
A very good paint for its price, if you can find it. It can take a fairly decent beating in woodsball and still manage to make it to its target intact. It stays on target all of the time, minus a few w/ a mind of their own. Im giving it an 9 because if you have any paint left over from a day of play, unless you go again the next day...its wasted paint. I left it in my closet for 2 weeks and even rotated it a few times, but when i took them out for a few practice shots, they were all dimpled and a few even became sticky, but I cant complain, it was a great preformer on the field, and thats what mattered.

Zap Spank (good) and Allstars (really good, but more expensive)
Smart Parts Vision Shocker with a 14" All American Barrel and a Dye Throttle air system.
I went to play at a local field and bought Zap Primers. This paint is not good. One ball will have just one dimple in it and the next will look like a raison. My Shocker Vision hates this paint. Although this paint is supposed to be better than Zap Spank, it is not. Zap Spank is really good. It is also cheaper than this paint. It is better than Primers.
I would not recommend this paint to anyone with a high end marker because high end markers don't seem to like this paint. If you have like a Tippmann or a Spyder or something like that it might work ok, but I would say just don't buy this paint. If you want good paint for a good price, get Spank.

ndz no rise

pure energy 68 ci 300psi
seam is normal
This paint is great and flies straight and they are not oblonge (oval shaped). They are pretty cheap compared to other paint. I heard spank is better but have never tried spank. The thing is, spank is dark and your marker's eyes might not see them so I got primer which is brighter. It may not be as good as the marbs and evil, but it it really good for practice and just playing outside of a tourney.

Ability to shoot through brush
Doesn't always break
Hard to find colors other than white
I have been using this paint for the past year and havent had too many problems with them. These don't keep very well, my friend broke a lot of paint with bko, and having stored a bag for one month (two weeks the bag was open). I Live in southern california so it isn't humid at all (balls shouldn't swell.) These ball don't break easily on your target or in your barrel, and they don't leave a great fill. These balls also have a large seam in the middle, which subtracts from their accuracy. They are cheap though at $45 at my local pro shop.
This is my practice paint. It is, IMO, the best paint for the price. It shoots quite well, and the shell is generally pretty good (although you do sometimes get balls that aren't quite round). Of course, something like evil or chronic is better, but for practice paint you can't really go wrong with this stuff.
If you want a high performance paint, get chronic, evil, or some other high end brand. For practice (or rec for you recballers), this is the stuff to go with.

Not sure what to recommend for you, but I use a Stiffi Carbon Fiber Switch Kit and the paint worked great with it.
Flies straight, brakes on contact.
I was a little skeptical purchasing this paint, but living in San Diego you run into a lot of professional players from a certain team that wins a lot….lol
He recommended this paint to me; he said they use this paint for practice at times since their “banana paint” is not always a perfect choice for all situations.
The paint was excellent for the money; it shot very straight with my barrel, never broke in the gun and almost never bounced.
Sometimes the less expensive paint works better for certain situations, especially when it’s cold in the morning.
If the paint is fresh and you have a good barrel match you won’t be disappointed, especially for the price.

Not the best
This paint is ok at first i didnt want to buy it becayse i thought it was cheap paint. But when theguy at my local store reccomended it i was like ok. when i went paintballing with this paint i was amazed at how good this paint worked with my 0.689 all amercan barrell it was really accurate for cheap paint
Very consistant and some of the best fills i've ever seen
Common to get a bad batch......and the bad ones are total poop.
This is the paint i mostly use on my field now. Started with white fill and it was so friggin sweet! The balls were perfect.....i had guys with stock cockers shooting a 1 foot spread at almost 175 feet!!....and at 70 feet these balls were surgically accurate. The Fill was out of this world!! You'd see a splat on someone a mile away. Then we got pink shell/fill ones. Same outer shell quality but fill was thin and crappy. Then we got yellow fill/shell. They were badly dimpled, underfilled, leaking in the bags. Most were ok but you'd fing 6-7 per bag that had bad ones. Out of the 10 cases i've used so far about 6 had bad batches.
