Paint For Spyder Fenix?

I have a spyder fenix and I wanted to know what's the best paint to use for this gun? Last time I used HK Army and a lot of balls broke in my barrel.

There is no "best" paint for a certain marker..

Use what your local field provides, if your getting barrel breaks then your paint to bore match is to small.

Be sure it's not chopping the paint though.

I'd ask someone at your shop what the best paint they have for guns that are hard on paint are.

First check your bore size, then make sure you're not breaking paint(possibly gravity fed), then think about better paint.

Make sure it's not chopping paint in the breech. There are a lot of low-end guns that are hard on paint compared to high end tournament markers. Most high-end guns are made to shoot ultra brittle tournament paint. If you find this is the case then switch to a less brittle paint. Those type of paintballs are usually cheaper as well.
