Oh, and in regards to the shop... not super impressed with the Draxxus Triumph balls... but then again, I'm shooting them in the basement... not across a field at someone. Also, my stock barrel may have been the problem... in my J&J on my backup gun I wasn't breaking any, but I had 2 barrel breaks on my main gun...
Umm yeah the triumph paint is just a standard practice/whitebox so results vary. Some people enjoy it, others will never buy it again. It all depends on the situation really. Usually the people that hate it were shooting hard blowback guns like a tippmann(yes imo tippmanns are harder on paint than spyders) and or it was somewhat cold in the area they were shooting in.
Draxxus Triumph is the grade just above their "whitebox", and you either get an exceptional batch or a horrible batch, there is no in between. We sell it on Thursday nights for "team" night, and have had one bad batch. However, if you make sure it is good and warm you will have much better luck. The one batch I had that people had problems with had just come off the truck and hadn't had sufficient time to warm up.
I will take any Draxxus paint over just about anything else any day of the week.
