RPS Flash paint

Has anyone used this paint? How is it, what size is it. I am having a hard time finding out about this new paint. It is supposed to have the new adavantage shell.

i ordered a case from Paintballgear.com, i got the neon green as well, it is advertised as .686, altho i dont doubt that The Great Morpheus is completely wrong on his measurement, i put it in a .686 bored barrel and it fit good, but it blew out kinda easy when i tested it. i took another one and put in my .688, it rolled out. so i would use a .686 or .685 bored barrel. it worked well. altho i like all RPS advantage paint, this is great in electro's. its well worth 50 bucks and works as good as el tigre and hell fire.

I recently talked to a PMI employee about the flash, and found out an interesting fact. Although Flash is being marketed as a NEW pait, it is in fact NOT! Flash is just a repackaged Premium gold. Same formula, same fill.

You may have talked to a PMI employee, but his information is incorrect. I emailed RP Scherer about that & they said it was a different formula and different fill, also the heaviest ball they make. Mark Ambrose from RPS is who emailed me this information.

my experience with flash

i shot this stuff a couple weeks ago and it sucks. they are quite possibly the worst paint i have ever shot. i went from a +/- 5 to a +/- 50. i think one of the reasons that it is so bad is the inconsistant weight. i weighed 2 balls from the same bag and there was almost a 1 gram difference between them. that is a difference of about 33% of the overall weight. to compare i weighed two hellfire and there was no noticible difference between them.
