Is JT paint just rebranded RPS?

Is JT paint the oddball RPS paints that Empire doesnt continue?
Or is it rebranded empire paint?

IE: JT advantage is a new blend, or is it just rebranded premium.


at this point i only know of like 3 distinct paint brands (Kee, GI, Valken)

As a paintball player, you should be trying to grow the sport. If there is ever an opportunity to help your local field, you should try your best to help.

It's produced at the same factories. What ball does JT advantage compare to? It's probably similar to hotbox or spectrum. Stinger is equivalent to V1. Which is a double shelled ball.

It's hard to say these days now that the paint is being produced differently.

Advantage is the "Top tier" JT paint. (sells for $50 on Ans, picked it up for $40 at a local big box store)

50/50 shell

drop tests n such:
Dropping it: bounces from waist high.
Tossing it against my fence (probably 25 ft) : Broke, bright orange fill. (Not as bright as typical neon yellow. But it is bright enough.)

Appearance: no oils are visible in the bag, not even residue.
None of the balls seem to be dimpled.

I'll equate it to premium

sounds about right. Or "Formula 13" which I feel like is what it's supposed to be just reboxed.

spoke to my local pro shop. Here's what we figured out

old premium (50/50 matte metallic shell) has been essentially rebranded to this JT advantage paint.

New premium has a different (50/50 matte matte) shell.
