best paintballs for under $50

I have an etek 3 am with a dye rotor and the stock barrel. were i am it is about 65 degrees and i am chopping a ton of paint, I have shot JT monsoon which was great at first but is chopping a lot now. I also shot RPS premium which was $60 a case and was basically soup. the only paint i hhave shot that actually sot out of my barrel wwas valken grafiti but it was $60 and i cant afford that, i also shot V1 paint rather well but the local shop is all out and i need to find a new paint that my gun will shoot without chopping. like i said my max i will pay is 50 bucks for a case.

Yeah I have seen many eteks with this problem.

In regards to the paint maybe try something with a less brittle shell.

You are getting over charged for graffiti. 45 plus tax is what my local stores sell it for, either way that was going to be the paint a recommended as it's the only paint my team will shoot.

Yea for sure If you just practicing or rec playing, valken infinite paint is awesome and cheap. Or you can see if you can find some hostile creations paint. That stuff is nice too and shouldn't chop in your marker. If that doesn't work, maybe go for a bolt upgrade to a softer tip. GL!!

JT paint is surprisingly brittle for the price, and you higher-end shop paint is also going to be fairly brittle. Since its now colder, you need to find some more durable paint, you may actually save money and get better performance buying a slightly lower grade that's not as fragile. V1 is a good example. Try out some different cheap brands from a local sporting goods store and find one that works well for cold weather.

I like JT Maxim CP, shoots excellently out of my shocker, breaks consistently (alot more than other paints that are 35 bucks), soft enough shell, and you can get it at sports authority. Check the dates on them though, get the newest you can find never grab any that has a date 2 weeks or more old, I never do.
