Anybody tried Valken paint?

Hey, wondering if they make good paint.

Experience w/ the Infinity as well as the Redemption line would be great, and does anyone know the size of the paint?

Redemption is great. I haven't used Infinity, but I have used Valken's "field" paint which I'm sure is just one of their other paints repackaged, but I don't know which one it is. Infinity is Valken's lowest end so maybe the field paint is Infinity repacked so FPO fields can charge more for it without people realizing what it is. Graffiti is also a very good paint and is just under Redemption in Valken's line. All three do not roll out of my 0.687 big shot but you can see light around the ball so it's probably somewhere around 0.682-0.685. Unless you need the extra breaking probability of Redemption, go with Graffiti if you can get it. The only difference between them is that Graffiti will break on almost anything and Redemption will break on anything and Graffiti is usually $10-$15 a case less.

My field uses Valken paint exclusively and its pretty good. All I ever shoot is the Graffiti line and love it.

Redemption is the next step up from Graffiti so it should be even better.

I would stay away from the Infinity paint tho. The stuff is like shooting slimy seemed reballs. They fly like junk, break like bouncy balls, and are oilier then the Fonz's hairdo.

Personally I wouldnt shoot anything cheaper then their Ink'd line if you can afford it.

I thought that infinity was reasonable.... I mean at field prices it sucks, but it shoots reasonable out of a 693 with a reasonable stream/ break rate

I have used Fate, Crusade and Graffiti.

Fate - I will never buy again. Doesn't break on anything.

Crusade - Pretty good. Breaks and shoots straight.

Graffiti - Again pretty good. Breaks and shoots straight.

Shot redemption this week. Looked like marbalizer, was kind of bouncy, not up to par with ultra evil, imo, more like a premium ball.

I have fallen in love with Valken Graffiti paint!

It has an incredible fill and flys straight. It breaks, and there isn't much more you could ask for in paint. I notice it runs in at about .688 in size as well. So you don't need the ULTRA SMALL BORES to try and get a good paint/barrel fit.
I can't say enough good things about this paint - honestly.

I ordered 3 cases to try from Yeti Paintball. ( guy on here ) was very reasonably priced and shipped extremely quick with no breaks in the boxes. He's a great guy to deal with!

Graffiti is off the chain, breaks awesome bore out at a 684-89 good fill, I shot a ball out of my barrel before I went Too sleep las night and it is in the same shape as it looked like when I went to sleep, nice orange thick and chalky and when wet easy to wipe off a mask but don't wipe it on fabric

tbh valken infinity isn't that bad for the price. its pretty round and breaks fairly well. the downside to it is that its a lighter ball so the wind plays havoc for ranged shots. the infinity down here bores in at a .684-.685

also tried FATE, CRUSADE, GRAFFITI and REDEMPTION.

FATE had better breakability than infinity but i thought that the fill was pretty weak

CRUSADE was fairly good. breakability is better and the fill is not half bad

only tried GRAFFITI couple times and tbh its not bad. the fill was thick and broke fairly well

REDEMPTION is my go to paint if i can't shoot ultra evil. breaks well (not ultra evil well) and the fill is on par with standard EVIL.

Fate is garbage.

- Very inconsistent shape
- Many barrel breaks
- Weak fill
- Does not fly straight
- Bounces

just tried some Valken Redemption Pro today and it shot great. fill is thick and yellow but not as much as ultra evil. i shot it out of my T2 and G6R and it was pretty much ball on ball accuracy...debating if i should shoot it through my g6r again...

I shot a case of Redemption at a local tourney last year and I liked it, I wouldn't say it was the best paint I've ever shot, but as for only shooting one case from one pallet of paint I cant say weather its a good or bad paint overall. The Infinity I've shot shot decently, in fact the first pallet my local field got shot really well(for the price) but after that it seemed to be hit or miss. The big problem with the Infinity was cleanup, It sucked plain and simple and if left to dry would get very sticky and difficult to remove from the insides of guns and hoppers(Never forget to clean your stuff lol).

My local field used to uses graffiti paint and I love it! They seem to smell worse than other paintballs I've used but who cares? They break easy and shoot very accurate

Valken paint is by far my favorite. The best kinds are Graffiti, Redemption, and Redemption Pro. I only ever shot Redemption and for the price of it, probably the best paint I ever shot. My teammates shot Graffiti and Redemption Pro and they had no problems at all.
