DYE Tournament paint. Anyone use it yet?

Shoots amazing! 10/10 on all factors, accuracy/fill/brittleness and cool boxes/bags.

Didn't even know it existed, which isn't surprising. Basically, if i can't get it locally, i won't know it exists.

Got some samples at a local field, shot great. The fill is slightly less radiant than the ultra evil yellow, but still bright, very brittle shell, exceptional accuracy like top end balls and the dark blue shell is easy to track leaving your gun, but harder to see coming at you. I hope it retails for less than $80/case, cause I love this stuff. It was a 10/10 ball on the stuff that I shot, and I can't see any flaws other than price at this point in time.

I don't like it. My personal opinion that it makes shooting inaccurate. I shoot Ego 11, maybe its only with my gun, but still.

Best paint ive tried! shot a case with my empire sniper, but its really small sized it rolls through techt ifit .676 insert had to use .673 for it.
If i would complain it would be the fill not thick enough

wow tinyyy!

Ha wait.. Don't rotors have a tough time with small paint? hence the manual telling you to stay away from reballs.. ?

ironic..

DYE needs to bring back those bright orange Proto Darts! NOTHING beat it @ $45 a case

All will break on your target. This stuff is super brittle. The only ball break that I have had was getting shot in the hopper and it broke one inside.


This stuff bores out at .685. Just checked on a fresh bag. Tight on my .682, blows through my .687 and won't fit in my .679.

I think the $80 is the projected retail price. Empire retails Ultra Evil at $77/case. I'd wait until it is readily available at multiple retailers to see what the actual retail price is.

It is difficult to see coming in, but when you are shooting it and looking down your barrel, you can see where it is going.

I won't support a .673 paint and I hope other people don't either. That's just ridiculous.

No rollouts on a CP .682. No worries.

I shot is yesterday and it shoots just like ultra evil and I didn't pay $80/case. I didn't have a single bounce with it. One balled lots of people with my pump and you can easily see the fill from 1/2 field. Can't wait to see this stuff hit the mainstream retail stores. 0.682 bore,no rollouts.

Won't pay THAT much of a premium for the Dye name because there is NO way it is that much better than Ultra Evil.
