JT paint

JT paint is the 2nd worst paint i have ever used!!!!
right behind point blank

besides the beautiful seamless design of the JT paint.
it is very hard to break, and possibly even dangerous from my experience(it is possible that i got a bad batch though, i doubt it though).

i was shooting at a log 5 feet away with my old cocker at 280fps
and the balls weren't even breaking they we're ricocheting off of it like a bullet!!!

it sucks

p.s. sorry JT, i do like your masks though

I'm pretty sure its the same shell as the new RP Advantage. I had close to the same experience with the new All Star.

i stopped playing with RP since they switched over i bought some and it broke everywhere chops left and right so maybe they changed the formula a bit and made the shells less brittle...who knows

i was using Point Blank a few days ago.
and it was actually not too bad(but then, the timi can shoot any paint really)

but the point blank was breaking pretty well (no bounces)

i was satisfied with the point blank

I had zero problems with JT paint in 2 cases........It broke every time on players. I can't even squeeze it through bushes at all.....it always breaks.

i played with steel for a day ( i also bought a case for testing) but itz the top of the line point blank and it just broke way to easy man! even in my Matrix with the trinity barely cycling it it would break them all up...and it sucks too cause they have the best fill i have ever seen in a paintball. if they can make the shell just a bit harder and keep that fill i would say they are the best ball out so far..the fill really is just some sick a** ****, much thicker then hellfire.

Hey carlo I bought some of their green house paint and it has the steel fill!! I got a bunch for a private game for my church but I didnt try any. It looked pretty consistant and its super cheap. You should pass by XS and try some or I can get you a case if we ever meet up.
Are you going to caljam? Im going to try and go saturday, maybe we can meet up and say hi.

Their house paint is called house paint. I think the shell was a normal hardness not brittle at all. Its like legends shell with steel fill. They are pretty small bore some of them roll through my CP pro barrel. They are about $30 a case, a good deal.
Im hoping to get a dye mask at caljam and some other cool stuff. Ive been eying the matrix lately but now Im looking at the ephantom.

The ephantom is just a phantom with custom electronics to make it an electro .It only shoots 10bps but phantoms are so acurate. Im also looing at the excalibuy after firing one at caljam today. They sold out of dye masks I wanted one so bad.

hey i shoot STEEL all the time and i never break paint. Now, this maybe because I shoot a freak but i love it. And it also smells really good. There are a couple of guys at my local field that shoots nothing but the JT paint. It is probally the most accurate shooting paint i have ever shot in my life, but it hardly ever breaks. Another thing is, I personally hate that it is yellow. I don't know about you but i can stand out in the open and dodge this paint all day long......

I suggest you try the house paint! Ive never had problems with it either, not one break. With a ball break with those, your done. I had a few breaks testing the limits of my rev and one ball break and I had to take aprt everything. Happened 3 times and took forever to clean. The fill is mind boggling. I had a ball break with the orange house paint(which Im pretty sure has the steel fill like the green) so I straight shotted it and when I pulled it out, all the paint stuck to the squeegie!! There was a bunch of it too just haning out there like
Hey carlo, Im planning on going to tombstone this sat if you could make it out with us.

hey i use the 689 insert on my freak(the blue insert) and i never break. Now, don't go using the insert if it doesn't fit because i live in a different climate then you and by the time are paint gets to each other then its probally a different size like at a tourney i was at this weekend, somebody was shooting STEEL and they had the purple insert in....that had meant their paint must have shrunk as in I was using the 689 blue insert with no problems.

At a tourney last Saturday while chronographing players, I took a few of the JT Paintballs and lobbed them very slowly at bunkers.

All of them broke, everyone was amazed.
