Premium and evil is really good. But if i cannot find premium then i buy PWI Smoking Dragon which i consider very similar to Premium. I usually pay $48 for a case of premium and $45 for Smoking dragons and $58 for Evil.

I use premium cause it reliable for rec ball and practice plus I get it for 35 a case but for tourneys I would highly reccommend evil

I would NOT recommend formula 13. I've had nothing but bad experiences with it. Its the "premium" paint at one of our local fields, and it is not worth the 60 a case. The fill is nice, but the shell is too hard. Lots of bounces. You may as well bonus ball your opponent 10-15 times if you want to ensure a break.

Best paint I've shot yet is RPS Premium Gold. Haven't been able to find Evil or Ultra Evil in the Toronto area yet.

I don't play any tournaments so RPS premium is the most I'll pay for paint. Around here it's about 50 bucks. It shoots great so I see no point in buying more expensive paint.

VALKEN infinity is by far THE WORST paint out there. I poured a pod at practice into my loader and it came out literally in the shape of the pod.
It feels bad when you get a handfull
Doesn't break
Shoots like crap
And WON'T STOP JAMMING. Worst 30 bucks spent

Sounds like you got a bad case. Shot through a bunch of it i had sit in pods for a week after opening and didn't get one jam. Gotta watch, Valken paint REALLY does not go well with any type of moisture.

Heat isn't *too* bad, but there are better.

Get premium for an all round solid rec ball. If you play in the woods a bit id say get marbs. By far the best woods paintball ever. not ultra brittle but thick enough shell to survive light brush, and still break on impact plus a nasty fill.

I need to start having my local field order me pink/purple shell pink fill premium again.. that stuff is money.

stay away from the ultra cheap paint. its pointless. you'd be better off getting a mid range paintball than a super high end or low end for just regular play.

always shoot ultra evil/evil for events.. Unless its cold.. then shoot marbs or polar ice.

Valken makes a new paint called Noxious and it works great for a cheap price. My field sells it for 40 a case

Has anybody heard of Wrek Elite Premium? It's on paintball discounters for about 35 a case. I might pick up a case to try it but I need to know if it has red or white fill (local field wont allow these colors)
