Empire - Heat Reviews
Empire Heat This paint is crap. Once you start shooting at some distance you can't hit anything. I have to throw it as high as I can straight up just to get it to break.

I use Heat quite a lot. It shoots straight, and is not expensive. For what you pay, or at least I pay, its a pretty good value.
The main problem is that its very hard, and if you are shooting at someone with a padded vent or similar, it will bounce quite often. I find this to be especially true against air ball bunkers
However, all things considered, heat is by no means a "bad paint". I use it when I'm not in need of better quality paint (walk on play, ext.), and it works just fine.

Empire Heat Would use for practice and rec play. Not necessarily the best for tournament level performance.

I purchased this paint at my local field which is field paint only. The price was a little high being it is field paint, but better then the X.O. Industries Spectrum that they offer for 5 dollar cheaper.

Upon shooting the paint I noticed that it did bounce off of alot of players but when it did break the fill was very noticable.

all in all I do believe that I should have went with the formula 13 in the same price range, but if this is all you have It will get the job done!

I Used Empire Heat today for the first time today with my BT TM15, I was hesitant about using cheap paint but to my surprise it shot great. I used ALLSTAR last weekend and see no difference in performance except the 20 dollars you save. I will update this after a few more weekend of playing

I have used a few cases of this as it is my local fields cheap paint. It will not break in your gun but it will also fly crazy and bounce on soft targets. This is true when shot from my etek 3 as well as my auto cocker. I'm done buying this paint. I have had to many shots miss the target due to inconsistent shots. (for you haters, I'm using a freak and the paint to bore match is good for the time/day)
