That wasn't my point; my point was that, if it sat in Asia for a week, and then was at sea for 2 weeks, and then it took another week in the US to repackage it (in New Jersey), and then another week to send it to California, that paint is at minimum 5 weeks old. We all know that fresh paint is more consistent. Varying conditions (ie temperature, humidity, and failure to rotate stock) are a good way to produce an inconsistent ball (as far as shape and shell).
KEE/DXS/G.I. all manufacture their paint that is national tournament bound within 10 days of the start of the tournament, store it in a climate controlled facility, and then it is on one climate controlled truck, often the same truck that is at the event that you pickup your paint from.
