No more Dye paint

Dye has ceased production on their in-house line of paint, despite a decent critical reception and consumer praise.

isn't it 80 bucks a case? I am not sure but I never saw anyone shoot it, and I play at some BYOP fields too. Other than tourney players, I am sure it didn't get much use.

maybe it was the batch I shot but I got a lot of bounces as compared to Ultra Evil and even redemption pro. had the same breakage as RPS Premium . but all in all it was decent paint. to bad they decided to shut it down

that's weird, it was like 70-75 a case. and everyone uses a lot of paint, that's a big loss to their money.

When Dye made Proto paint it also didn't last long despite being fantastic paint (and not $80/case). I wonder why they pulled the plug on this stuff so early.

This paint shot extremely nicely. I was really excited to shoot it again at Dallas 2014.

This kind of surprises me. I wonder if they realized it wasn't worth all of the trouble for the little money made by it. Wonder what paint companies will pick up the dye teams for this season

Maybe something new will take its place? Dye certainly advertised the CG paint heavily.

Far from it. Dye paint is made overseas. GI paint is made here.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
