I'd probably avoid shooting basic outside in the heat. Indoors with moderately warm temperatures it bounces plenty. Outside in the heat its gotta be atrocious.

I haven't shot any other paint than the one they sell at Warzone but it's insane of how many times it bounces! So I think you guys should tell players to call themselves out if they feel the hit because that's what a lot of people do anyways (including me)

They have bad paint and they have worse paint. I wouldn't mind paying an extra $5 for some descent paint.

Better Paint = More $$$. Why not just call yourself out?

In tournament paintball most of the time you have options for paint. You can buy this for this price but it's not as good or pay a little more and it be better. It goes for Rec play also.

We are working on storing the paint in a climate controlled room to preserve it's freshness. Obviously the cheaper paint is going to be harder and not break on target all the time it's a basic ball at a basic price.

As for calling your self out cause you got bounced I would not do that unless I got completely shot up to where I could not check all the places.

At the end of the day you could give Premium gold away and people would find something to complain about.

I love shooting good paint and it breaking on people just as much as the next guy..

Well said, I just get angry when I get bounces just like everyone else, but I'll be purchasing your $60 package next time, and I wasn't really complaining I was just saying it was bouncing like nuts and I could have gotten a lot more people out if it would've broken on them, I know you guys try your hardest to give players the best paint at a low price, and I can understand why people complain but I'm just going to be grateful for what I get.

This may be a slight exaggeration. I'm sure the paint is more apt to break when not playing blast furnace, as it has been for the past few weekends. Air DXS Field does break better than Basic overall, but I would not consider either of these "bad".

I would not sacrifice the bouncing, during non-tournament play, for double the price per case when shooting 2+ per practice. I guess it is all relative to what you're doing and how you're playing.

Bronze would be a decent option but most importantly is like the guy above said- storing the paint in a climate controlled area works best. I've seen 3 day old (by 3 day old I mean the skid arrived, and the paint sat in a cold room for 3 days unopened) DXS Gold paint bounce in this heat wave from 25 yards away- shooting at 285fps- off of a flex lens.

Hopefully I get to come out this weekend and check the outdoor out. I'll just bring a cooler to put the paint on ice

*THIS IS NOT TO BE TAKEN AS A POST TO BASH WARZONE*

I don't know what it is with warzone weather they are on bad terms with paint companies or what but their paint is always ridiculously bouncy. I've shot the same paint any other fields indoor and out and have never had paint as bouncy as the stuff they get. I'm not sure if they have changed the formula of the field paint but if I remember correctly from when I used to work there wasn't the DXS field a Bronze shell with like basic or rec sport fill?

I didn't have too many problems with bounces from basic. I'm sure there were a few off the break but other then that it worked fine. Some people (chynaman) you just have to keep shooting till they walk off the field regardless of if the paint breaks or not.

when you shoot a whole hopper at someone and it seems like 75% of them hit the person and bouncy off you get a little pissed off and not want to shot anymore. cause a team couldve won but because the paint dont break your team loses makes you wonder if your playing good or not.

before my rant, go look at pricing at field outside of Ohio, excluding California, we are lucky to not be paying $100 a case, for real.

We look like crap at practice and during rec play, come tournament time we drop 1 point in prelims, go figure. Has happened twice this season, first event we take second, last event we too 3rd after what we thought were bad practices.

Look at outdoor field only pricing and look at Warzone pricing. Warzone is running a rather large indoor/outdoor facility with way more overhead than outdoor only field, not that those fields don't have any bills to pay, but obviously any indoor field will charge a premium for paint, and to make a decent profit it's not going to be DXS Silver Or Gold

Rec/Field paint typically has harder shells so rental guns can shoot it, run some DXS Gold or Ultra Evil through a rental gun, soup!

I shoot Stinger every weekend, some weekends it's great, some it isn't, and where we play its in climate controlled storage, humidity kills paint, simple as that, chill it if you can, be too cold equals too brittle and that equals SOUP!
