I had to pay $70 a case for this crap at Sherwood Forest in Indiana. Zap paintballs are notorious for being horrid. Those of you who didn't know.. these are zap paintballs. I have shot Nelson Hot Spot reload balls that were more consistent. X( i want my money back.. For this price i would expect to has seen XBall Paintball Gold Paintballs that usually sell for 50-55 per case at quality paintball fields. I dont know about all of you but im sick of being ripped off.
If a paintball park makes you buy this paint, you may want to leave. The field may have recieved a bad pallet or 2 but a case of zap should never cost $70. This stuff costs $20/case if you buy it by the pallet. I would have to say this is the worst paint i have shot ever, in my situation.

I got this paint at my local field for $40 and i was trying it out. The first thing i noticed was how cool it looked and the crazy designs on them. These designs help you see the ball as it's traveling. When I first started shooting this stuff it was very accurate. There were no odd balls they were all round. This paint fill is a mix of toothpaste and superglue so its nearly impossible to wipe. Even after the game lol. I had no bounces or chops all day
I've used several products varying in prices, but for a fair comparison I'll just list other mid-range paints:
Stinger- Shell is too thick, poor fill
Draxxus Heat- not as consistent, decent fill
Pegball- good fill, not a very long shelf life
Tippmann A-5 with Autococker thread adapter, .689 St!ffi 14" barrel, Special Ops Dogleg Stock, PCS Remote line w/ slide check
St!ffi, pretty much anything in t he .689 range, don't know about flatlines
Good shelf life
good in varying weather
There are paints that are all round better, but you'll have to pay more
I play woodsball first off, so my entire experience with this paint has been outdoors at 275-290 fps.
I started using this paint about 6 months back, and I immediately noticed that for $40 per case it had amazing consistency, great fill, and good impact breakage. I'll admit I've fired better paint, but not often and then only when I was willing to spend at least 30% more for the paint.
As I said I play woodsball, and this paint is great for my purposes, it has become my primary paint, and only when it is unavailable do I buy other similarly priced paint. I have read alot of reviews complaining about various things from dimpling to poor fill. Honestly I have to say that these statements in no way reflect my experience.
I have used this paint in the heat of desert summer, through the fall and last weekend I played with it in a blizzard. The paint has stayed consistent through every season, and I have never had a ball dimple (of course I've never had an open case for more than a month and a half).
This paint always shows up great on my opponents, it is bright, thick, and has a great spread. Not only that but it has a great consistency in size. I currently have a .689 barrel and it has been a great fit through various batches.
Now while I don't need tourny paint, I have spoiled myself once or twice, with stuff like proball, and admittedly it is better paint, but the fact still comes back to that for the price Ink'd is the best value for your buck.
Ink'd is the best Rec paint I have used thus far, I would recommend it to anyone who is playing woodsball. If you're looking to get a consistency, good fill, and all weather usage, and you don't want to spend an arm and a leg, I'd give this paint a try.
Well I'll start thing off with I was worried to try this paint because of the other reviews. The local field has this and I wasn't happy with the field paint that they offered. So I decided to bite the bullet and buy some. Let me tell you I never made a better decision.
First off the boxing was very nicely done. Opened it up and looked at the ball for dimples and what not. They were in good condition. All of the packages had mositure packets in them and that is a good thing. Pulled a ball out and did the bounce test. I was getting one to two bounces off of the concete. Grabbed a few more for the pipe kit. MOST of them were .689. Also the shell has a nice red-purple swirl.
Then came the field test. When you get hit by this stuff, everyone knows it because of the bright, pink fill. And you talk about thick! That is why I said wipers beware. All in all I didn't have any barrel breaks or bad accuarry.
Since using this product, I will continue to use it. I still haven't seen this white filled that everyone talks about, but until I do I'll keep using this. Can't go wrong! I'll give it a 9 because the best paintball will have laser tracking installed in them and I yet to see those!

any med-large bore barrel. Always bes with a sizeable set like a pepperstick or freak
Hard Shell is good for the woods
Very hard Shell
White Fill has odd bodily fluid texture
hard to see hits
Good shooting paint.. Actually fits into the old Rapids.
I first shot this paint at <a href="http://www.cdpaintball.com/">command decisions paintball</a> during the Fulda Gap 2006 game.. the paint ame straight from the factory to the field. this stuff is like shooting marbles. you know when you get hit by them. I know with the white fill if the paint runs it loses its color and becomes clear.
I still use it as a fun paint with my stock class markers..
Durable, reliable, cheap, wide range of colors and fills
Some fills are dull, mid-level whipe protection.
Alright so around these parts ink'd is the FPO paint for scenario and big games. Its a larger bore paint and shoots strait with the proper paint-barrel match. There are only two real issues I have had with this paint and one of them is you will get crazy barrel breaks if you try to use a smaller barrel but thats with most paint.
The other is some of the fills of this paint are just terrible. Yet they change so much I can honestly say I don't think I have shot the same color fill twice. I would like to see a very BRIGHT fill from ink'd.
All in all I would suggest this paint as a good mid-rage paint to use.
Brass Eagle Monster Balls-SUCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!! Buy these to shoot in your backyard...doesnt make a mess cuz there NO PAINT!
32 Degrees Competition-About the same but less more consistent fill and melt easily
Diablo Heat-Doesn't always break on target
Scorch-About the same, great paint for the price

Breaks on contact
Good for storage
Only comes in white?
These paintballs are great for the price. I had some left over and stored them for 2 months and no signs of dimples or anything. They fly pretty straight and 95% of the time they break on contact. All the pballs are round and not to hard not to soft. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Buy these paint! For $30 you wont regret them, but be sure to open the box to see if there are dimples.
proball quality in that you cannot wipe
The White paint is very easy to see coming
amount of colors
Alright so my field has been selling proto paint for a LONG time since they opened and i really didn't like it but i didn't want to pay 70 bux for paint at sports athority and i was not going to walmart i didn't go for about a month and i come back and ask for a bag of paint. I get this white paint and say... no i didn't want white box i wanted proto. so long story short i start using the ink. This is the most consistent paint i have used and breaks so easily on people... i have not had one of these bounce on someone yet
also price is awesome 35 bux for this stuff at the field, i was paying 55 for the proto.
This Paint is also hard to wipe if anyone has used proball u understand
however proball is $60 and up where as you can get a great quality paint that you can not wipe for ALOT cheaper
If you can get access to this paint BUY it Buy it Buy it
Seems to be very good rec paint for the money. As long as you don't mind fewer breaks on opponents (especially at distance), it is a good option. The balls look beautifully round, and feel very solid. But they are very hard. Doesn't bother me much though. If it wasn't for the hardness, they would be the best ball around for the money.
I can only upload one pic, (the box) so here are some pics I took of the balls as well..

Hard to say what barrel. I used a .689 and the paint was at least a .687 or a little smaller.
Round, shoots straight, thick, wont chop
Hard shell, sometimes wont break on people
I found it a great paintball for the price. I paid $35 for it. I was going to buy Spank but they didnt have any. So I got this for the same price. It is great for straightness and wont break in your gun but I found it really hard. I did the drop test and it bounced over 10 times.
I found that this was good paint and the only draw back was that is was hard. For me it doesnt matter because we dont play break.
