I've shot a couple of Valken's Redemption. Black box with gold flake designs. Shoots very nice. I don't really have other high grade paint to compare it to though so take my opinion with a grain of salt!

I shoot alot of redemption. ive been though about 12 cases of it.. i buy it over evil at the moment. some of the most round paint i have seen in a while. also very consistent iv had 1 barrel break in 12 cases.

i will keep shooting it at the cost of 44.00 a case it cant get any better!!

valken graffiti is also very good.. but its a much thicker shell.. almost the same quality

I've been using wpn toxic and wpn elixir. Both were really good paint but they were from taiwan so as a result I think the shells were kinda hard from not being fresh. All my valken gear says made in china. Where r the redemptions manufactured gunsmoke? And 44 dollars USD? Where can I find that deal?

I love shooting redemption. Using a .682 barrel I was still getting a bit of an over bore, but up here all paint is pretty small. Not shooting my gun for over a week I aired it up and shot some balls to chrono and set up the reg. Shot 299,298,299,300,301,299. My buddy right beside me was impressed by how consistent it was.

no from canadianpaintball.com. free shipping on all paint, ships from van. I also was using the pink redemption, but at .682 it was still not a very tight fit.

Can't wait to get my .678 eigenbarrel...muawahaha.

I've shot both the Redemption and the Graffiti. Both good paint. I shoot a big bore Ul. Not a break yet in half a dozen cases

I won't shoot valken redemption again. I spoke with a spokesman from GI milsim at my local field when he was watching us bounce valken like rubber balls. He said valken now has a class action lawsuit because they are not putting made in Korea on the box. They SUCK. Stick to marbs for the price.

I shoot graffitti every week. It's great paint. Very round, and I have yet to get a barrel break. The redemption is even better because you wont get the occasional bounce that graffitti will have. Valken paint is good quality IMO.

I've shot a lot of the valken redemption, probably 10 cases or so. Excellent paint, though it does have a really thin shell, so any aggressive hopper will break them inside the hopper. My velocity and even my rotor broke balls in them until I turned the tension down. The plus side to that is that this stuff breaks ALL the time. Nver had one bounce yet, so I get solid splatter all the time. People shoot crappy paint at me and I laugh when it bounces off.

Though if you are playing woods ball, this is not the stuff to use, as it will NOT go through branches, even weeds, it will break up on. So you will have to go for a thicker shell paint shooting through brush.

Oh, oh, and the BEST part of it all.... If you buy the pink redemption, it smells like cupcakes. Best smelling paint ever. I buy this exclusively now because it smells so good.

I love the Redemption that Valken makes. I play pump so I need a brittle shell. They put silica gel packets in the bags too in order to keep moisture levels minimal, very impressive.

Would shoot it any day of the week.

i tried a case of the valken redemption the past two weekends (i play pump so a case lasts me two weekends) and for the price its not that bad. While it is not as brittle or bright as ultra evil, it does the job. It is a nice perfectly round ball and flies pretty straight. A freshly opened bag i can bore it at .684 however i have to switch to a .687 in the middle of the day since humidity is pretty harsh. At $50/case, it is not a bad choice and is a decent alternative to Ultra.

Another paint that i have tried out was Valken Infinity. While it is a good ball and breaks consistently, it doesn't fly that straight.

just shot some graffiti for the first time. Matrix 688 and shot ropes np, I shot crusade and redemption before (all sorts of markers) and both shot great for $45 or $50 cant remember. Almost all valken shoots good except infinity and echo and my only hang ups with those is the brightness and they are alil wider on chrono
