Better paint will give you better results (ie better groupings, fewer bounces). It should be able to shoot just about any kind of paint you put into it.

A very good mask. One that is comfortable and covers your face how you want it to. That is the most important part. If you can shot 25pbs and can't see your not doing anything. But other than that good setup.

ive shot all kinds of paint through my old etha no breaks or anything, i will say once you break in the gun get a good barrel kit. right now your setup is perfect

To test how it was on paint I took some almost three year old All-star I had sitting in my basement and fired 1000 rounds. The paint was dimpled and brittle as could be. The paint was stuff I wouldn't even consider shooting in practice as I thought more than likely the gun would demolish it, especially on a 45 degree day.
Not so, in all 1000 rds I had 1 ball break in the barrel.
I'm pretty impressed with the paint handling.
If you are playing tourneys shoot the best you can get/afford. If you are playing rec play or practice shoot whatevers cheap. It'll handle it all.
