What do you do if a ball breaks in the bag?

How do you clean up the mess when it happens to you?
Or
Do you just toss the entire bag out?

THe store wont take responsibility and I dont blame them, but being a poor student, i cant afford to toss out a bag let alone 3 (I know...poor me)

SO what do you guys do?

it takes a while, but it works. i might add to just clean a few at a time. dump part of the bag out, and roll them around on a towel. then do some more.

Dump the paint out on a nice fluffy towel and gentlely roll them around. That will clean them off nicely.

do the towel thing, and also keep your eye open for shells, sometimes they like to attach themselves to whole paintballs.

Yeah, most proshops will open the box for you and inspect your paint. But if they don't, then step over to the side, and look in the box for broken paint.

i roll it around with a cardboard box until it looks dry. but that towel idea would work great.

Do the towel thing.

If the paintballs have even a little liquid coating, it'll mess up the flight trajectory of the ball. Basically it'll shoot straight for about 10 feet before zig-zagging all over the damn place. It's fun to watch, but it kills your combat efficiency.

Assuming the box is new and you just opened it, rather than keep it for a few weeks, I'd complain up and down until they do what they're supposed to do and replace it.

I usually just stomp on the bag and go get another one.

Roll them out into a towel and roll them around in the towel.
