What kind of paint are you using?

Are you sizing the paint?

Is the barrel spotless on the inside?

I have a feeling this could be potential operator error.

What paint are you using? Try different paint.

Edit: missed it by a minute.

yeah i am sizein the paint. it could be my error. i am using diablo heat paint. i do have a question about sizing also is there a perfect way to size them?. i take a insert and drop it through and go down until they dont fall through anymore. not where they are tight or anything.

The paintballs should be a little tight, they should NOT roll out, it should take a light blow to push them out of the barrel.

Heat isn't the best paint in the world which is the number one factor. Heat generally runs about 40/case here where as a decent paint such as Premium is about 60/case.

I NEVER had any luck with cheap paint in any of the 6 different ions that I owned. I went and bought some premium or dxs gold and never looked back.

okay thank you very much. i think my friend bought some premuim paint and has a pod left. ill size match it and shoot it and see what happens. yeah diablo used to work well for me and now its getting crappy. i get a break every 400 shots. not a chop though. ill try some of his and see if that makes a difference. i will post soon to let you know how that works. and another questions. is a clippard qev better then the 360? like a virtue qev?. i was thinking about going to a virtue qev and a l7 bolt

i currently have a firebolt and sp 360 qev. i was seeing if thats a better setup because i have 2 ions. one is completely stock. i got it for free. it had a fried noid so i got a virtue board and put mine into the other one. works like a charm.

QEV's dont matter between those two really. If you already have a 360, it's fine. The only thing the clippard qevs add is the quick release on the hose instead of a barb. And maybe a little bit of a lower dwell... maybe.

thanks for all the help. i have 2 ions and i have one completely stock so im thinking about putting my parts from my ion into the other one and putting a virtue qev and l7 into my gun. also i ran 2 pods of paint through my ion with the better grade and it works like a charm at 65 feet away i could shoot very very accurate. at about 75 feet i was still doing pretty well...alootttt better then it was. its dead on now. thanks would my opp pressure be lower with the L7 bolt rather then a firebolt?
