I don't know from experience, but I've heard that NPS is a good one.
NPS has programs set up for you, and I've heard it is nice because they pretty much own at least one big company in each category (paint, markers, masks, etc).
I hope this helped!

NPS is great for starting up, but you will get owned pretty quick by them.

i think NPS has like a point system or something on the lines of that and when you buy stuff you get points. My local stores factory team purchased like 200 cases of paint with there points, or atleast thats what one of the players told me.

Dont get me wrong, NPS has great deals, but in the end, they end up controlling your orders. They expect you to order frequently... and if you dont keep up with their quota, you have to start alllllll over and buy over $750 worth of goods from their catalog... not their sales specials, which are the only good buys from them in my opinion. Their catalog does not have the greatest pricing in my opinion.

I personally just stick with ordering from the actual manufacturers of the products. They have always been the most helpfull and the prices are still wholesale. Ive found a lot of the products NPS carries in their catalog are even cheaper if you just buy from the actual manufacturer.

NPS would be a good place to get a dealership if you plan on making a $100+ order off of their sales specials every week. Other then that, their catalog prices are not the greatest.

My top 5:

5. Dye Precision
4. Tippmann Pneumatics
3. Pursuit Marketing
2. American Paintball
1. Custom Products

These 5 account for 70% of my margin. They all have primo service.

we go through
Dye
NPS
Archon
Trinity/bad habits
hybrid
GxG
Nxe

for the most part all of these guys are great
We have tried to get PMI and JT/WGP/K2/whatever else they own on at least 3 occasions and i must say that in trying to setup an account their service ABSOLUTLY SUCKS. I have never had such a hard time trying to give someone money!!!!!!!
