Premium paint

Anybody notice the falloff of quality with RPS Premium paint? Their hot pink with pink fill paint used to be my favorite paint to shoot by far, now the fill is nowhere near as vibrant. From what I understand it's now Empire premium and made in Taiwan.. Anyone else notice this or care to confirm? :/

I have seen this as well. Premium used to be my favorite paint period...no matter what color fill or she'll it used to shoot great and mark even better...now not so much.

Yep, Back when we had RPS in FL it was my go to paint. Even when they left it was still ok, now I feel like I would be paying too much for what I get.

I play pump and I still haven't found a consistently good paint. I feel that right now i'm jumping from one brand to another based on our local shop's experience.

In the last year I've gone through Ultra Evil, Marb, Valkin Graffiti, to Formula 13, and Empire Premium. Before I used to stick exclusively to Ultra Evil but even that stuff isn't as good anymore.

I think i'll check out GI paint to see how that goes.

Yes I shot a whole box along with my brother yesterday. It is made in Taiwan, it does bounce quite a bit, did not fly as straight as the old Premium/Premium Gold.
