Fyre...

Fire or Fear?

Almost read it as Fire and heard it pronounced as Fear in a video review.

I dont think anyone is arguing the quality of the paint or the pricing of it, only compaints in this thread I have seen have been about customer service and transportation logistics, all they need to do is find a carrier who knows what they are doing and improve customer service a bit for individuals/stores and fields. The only people who have posted positive feedback about their customer service are from sponsored teams.

used apx for 2 years, first year the stuff shot great, low,medium and highend was great shooting...
last year, ordered 10 cases to start the season off, Mind you i play woodsball and don't shoot through 20 cases in a weekend....
me and a friend split it to 5 cases each, after my second case, i sold the last 3 i had for 30.00 each case, was shooting pro btw...
Stuff shot like absolute crap, and my friends 5 cases were just as bad if not worse, barrel breaks constantly, would not shoot more than 30 feet straight..

Was just absolutely hilarious, except in the pocket book...
nothing wrong with the CS, just the paint sucked so bad.....

I hope they concentrate on turning out a good product this year, or you just might see them fall on their face, i would rate walmart paint better than this stuff, at least the 10 cases we had last year was worse than walmart paint.

Everyone has a bad batch every now and then. Heck, even Hostile has had a bad batch. So you have to work with what you have.

I think all teams need to 1) test paint prior to the event and 2) buy an initial case of each brand and shoot what works best at the event.

If you think that apx is going to make a ball anywhere near the quality of ultra evil you've never shot ultra evil. That stuff will still shoot strait and break on target if it's a year old and shaped like a triangle.

No idea where people are getting it's great. They supplied a local tourny not too long ago, and I had taken more bounces then a pogo-stick.

lol, where was it bouncing off of. Since I wear elbow pads and my jersey is padded I get more bounces than breaks from any paint hitting me there. some for a few other spots too.

dont know, haven't seen a bad batch of APX yet at the local field. I even had some I left in pods for 2 weeks so they got small dimples and they still shot straight. But I think we can find stories of bad batches from just about every supplier out there as well as good stories.

I also dont see why you would compare to ultra evil with the price difference there is, for that much more it better be better quality.

We are an APX sponsored team and honestly we have been shooting their paint for over 3 years now. I find that all paints have issues depending on the day. I hope that they have their best readu for HB and that all goes well. We SHOOT THEIR paint and are happy with how it shoots and its quality. WE HAVE RECEIVED EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE TOLD WE WOUDL EACH TIME

better then ultra evil in drop tests similiar to draxus gold.

I had ultra evil and draxus gold (the draxus was 1 week old in pods, where the ultra evil was 3 weeks old from an event but i had sealed boxes of it).

got APX fyre delivered to my house . apx fyre would consistently break about a foot lower then the ultra evil. draxis gold also broke about a foot lower then the evil and that was paint stored in pods not bags. (all this paint was stored in my house at 68 degrees).

apx fyre is amazing, when i played on the east coast and could bring paint to my fields i would bring apx mid grade paint to practices and when we scrimaged teams on saturday running 10 minute xball halfs i would use apx fyre (i think i got it for about 40 a case shipped maybe 43 a case shipped i would order 10 cases at a time).

i love their paint . my favorite paint brand HANDS DOWN.

most likely coming from a guy who has never shot apx paint or even seen apx paint.

20$ this dude also doesnt know the difference between ultra evil and regular evil.

30$ this dude actually believes the bs fed to him that ultra evil is at every ncpa event he plays,

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
