I have purchased about 10+ cases of this paint over time. It has proved to be more consistent than paint I have purchased at local "paintball" stores and fields for $10 more (I.e. PWI Bombz, Bite, Burn, HotBox, GI Sports *). No bleeding, barrel breaks, or random inaccuracy like I've experience with these others.

The only CON I can think of is that this paint is sold at Walmart. There seems to be an industry wide resistance to accept purchasing paint from "big retail", which I find ridiculous and another subject.

The shelves at our two Walmarts are emptied every weekend, and when I ask they don't have any in storage. This leads me to believe it is as fresh as any other paint out there.

RPS Stingers I miss the green/white ball shell coloring. Really think breaking paint, but it hurts like hell getting shot by these.

I used these as a play around paint, for the price you can't beat it, I would recommend paying around $10 more and getting GI 1 star but this would be a last resort option. Ive had good luck with these not busting a lot in my gun, still a lot of bounces.

I paid $30/case for Stinger, from my local Walmart.
I originally thought my NT was messed up, or that I had broken paint in my barrel. That wasn't the case, this stuff is dimpled, and oddly-shaped. To test my curiosity, I tested some of my buddy's paint, which shot perfectly fine from the NT.
The paint will break on contact, most of the time. The issue isn't breaks...it's hitting someone! I'm used to Marbz and Premium (the "old" premium); so comparatively speaking, Stinger just didn't hold up.

Overall: For $30, it's a decent paint. If it's 12:00 a.m the night before you're going to the field, and NEED to buy any random paint from Walmart, go with Stinger. However, if you have access to a local proshop, you can get something a lot better for $5-$10 more.

RPS Stingers 29.99+ tax for a case of 2000. I use this on an invert mini and it is no where near a tight fit. Falls through the barrel with ease. Most of the time it's ball on ball and sometimes (1/50) I'll see...

29.99+ tax for a case of 2000. I use this on an invert mini and it is no where near a tight fit. Falls through the barrel with ease. Most of the time it's ball on ball and sometimes (1/50) I'll see it fly in a strange knuckle ball pattern. You can feel the seam which i think may have to do with aerodynamics but you get what you pay for. It has an orange fill and is quite visible. This is a little bit better than the JT rec paint which is due to a better quality shell i think.

I've gotten these countless times, they usually work fine for practice. I have noticed, however, that I seem to see more bad cases of these than any other paint, at least around my park. I would still recommend them, and don't let one bad case deter you from getting these again.
