Depends. Brittle paint breaks more easily, which means it is less likely to bounce off the person you're shooting at. This is a good thing.

The bad part is that it is more likely to break inside your gun. If you've got a junky rental gun that's poorly tuned, you may break a lot of balls. If you have a well-tuned higher-end gun that's been designed with features to prevent ball breaks, it's much less likely to happen.

Generally, advanced players who know their equipment like brittle paint because it will be more likely to get them a hit that counts and breaks aren't an issue. Beginning players with less sophisticated equipment may instead be frustrated by it.

Dwizum really hit it on the head. The only thing I have to add is that cheaper paint tends to be less brittle, and the most expensive paint tends to be the most. For woodsball it can be a good idea to shoot less brittle paint, so that it can penetrate light brush a little better without breaking.

Headband vs Headwrap?

Is there a difference between the two or is it just preference?

Honestly they both protect about the same amount of skin, I use a sandana. I would say its all preference, you don't really gain much from one or the other, or even a backwards hat does the same.

Its possible to wear anything you want. I'm sure though if you did what you are saying. You're going for more style than functionality. However, I believe with that style all you would need to do is put the little airplane blade on the top as a spinner and you'd be set as far as looks go.

^Lol thats a pretty open question... not all autocockers are electronic either.

I'm not really sure what exactly you want to know.

What?

The Autococker, also known as the AutoCocker, or 'Cocker, is a closed-bolt semiautomatic paintball marker manufactured by Worr Game Products (WGP). It was one of the first paintball markers to be designed specifically for the sport, and has long been known throughout the paintball community for its popularity and customizability as well as its complexity. It is commonly believed that the closed-bolt design of the marker makes it inherently more accurate than its open-bolt counterparts, though this is disputed

a headband or headwrap should work for sweat. Most paintball oriented ones have terry cloth sewn in to catch sweat. As for the baseball cap, you can try but its a hard look to pull off . A visor for the mask would be a better option if what you are trying to accomplish is keeping sun out of your eyes.

The chronograph displays the velocity at which the paint is traveling out of your barrel in feet per second (fps) in North America. On some models when you shoot rapidly the chromo will display how many balls per second you are shooting (bps).

An ideal velocity for paintball is 280-300 fps and should not exceed 300 fps.

Hope that helps.
