Which paint

So I am sorta doing a pole here.

Which paint you guys choosing? Marbalizers or G.I. 5 Stars?
and why?

I plan on using marbs and so does the other 7 players I am bringing. I liked the old school marbs but have not shot the new marbs. Thought about using 5 Stars because I heard they are harder to see?
All I know is the new marbs are green/black compared to old style being redish (the one I got was) and the 5 Stars a purple color.

Generally I see GI and I go with ANYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD, but since they own paintball now I might as well shoot the 5 star.

I see it as 5star for folks shooting the guns that can handle it and for the renters and tippy brothers in arms, the marbs are a bit tougher and still do very well. One thing to note is that the marbs will be more popular for sure, especially with the weather flux history of the event it is more trustable. If you are shooting marbs, may want to cash in tickets early and have the paint for sure instead of bouncing back and forth

Honu can probably clear this up for sure, but I thought those choices were left over from Dreaded Legends in Florida. Historically, the choices at Legends at CPX have been either Marbalizer or Evil. Given the changes in the industry since last Legends, that may or may not hold true next month.

Edit - just saw there will indeed be GI paint available. Interesting.

I haven't shot GI's 5 star yet , I chose a couple of cases of marbalizer. If I need a 3rd , I will shoot whichever they have.
It's coming quick eh ? Working on my list as we speak !!

We try both before making a final decision. At times, we've had to switch mid event due to weather changes.

Think about how you will use it also. Last year both were very solid paints and useable in different ways.

Marbs were dark shelled and absolutely invisible in the woods, but evil was great for shooting in the sun drenched bedlam field. And conversely if you are shooting an apex, you would likely want the opposite for the contrast to see the flight you are giving to the ball.

Food for thought.

If you are using an apex or tippy go marbs my apex shreads brittle paint but if your gun can handle it shoot 5star

We are all running tippmans thou unless my friend brings his high end guns. However mine is the only modded one. I have both size hammerhead barrels (688 and 684) and all the fins, rufus dog bolt upgrade (to be better on brittle pain but never got the chance to try it), and polished internals.

1 guy is using just one case the whole event. Everyone else, including me plans on using 2 with possibility a 3rd but no more.

I don't want to get marbs and they suck so I switch to 5 stars but they break all the time. It would be great if I could get 50 or so of each to test them but that is not going to happen.

The other thing is shooting through twigs and trees where the marbs be better.

How do you know it was the apex and not the marker or both?

The marker is a geo 3.1 with iv core using soft tip bolt i use it all the time in tourneys with 5 star, my apex breaks balls like no other, using an apex with ultra evil last year at legends made my gun shooting soup, this year im just not going to use an apex

Is it possible to switch brands after pre-paying for one or the other?

I bought 3 cases of GI but if I don't like the way it shoots is it possible to switch that out for marbs or am I stuck with it?

HAHAHA your first sentence made me laugh.
I talked to my friends that are big into tournament paintball and they said this year that 5 star has been shooting better than marbelizer for them.

I ended up going with 5 star for my paint.
