The highest end tourney paint should only cost around $60, i usually pay $35-45 for GOOD recball paint (The cheapest i go is draxxus midnight). $80 for a case of paint is a complete rip-off. Since this is the field paint, and you can't do anything about it, i would try using a different field.

Yor getting raped if you pay anywhere near $80 for a case of paint. Usually if a field doesnt like BYOP they charge a fee (usually like $10) if you wanna use your own.

Just find somewhere else to play. That's an absurd price for paint.

my friend said they lowered it to 78 or something. hes going there for d-day. but at my field i think they charge that much cause the do get alot of parties and people during the week. i guess if people pay it they will sell it. if i sell my parts to my gun i sertainly support the local feild but i have only so much extra. good thing im leaving for college and ill be right near cousins in coram long island so my days of fretting frices shall end.

Theres a fine line between making a profit and screwing your customers. Thats one of the reasons i hate people who get pissed if you dont support your local field. To put it simple, if they try and screw people with insane prices they arent worth supporting. They need to make a little profit but any paint at 80+ a case is customer rape. Unless they have some magic fairy dust in the shell or have a paint/gold fill they arent worth that much. Hell, even if they did they prob wouldnt be worth that much.
