what is the best paint to use? overall

I am wondering what the best paint to buy is, in terms of quality and price. i know that there are the $75 cases, but i dont think they are worth it for just a day at the field, or are they?

some of the paint that i have used;
XO V1
DXS bronze
DXS Recsport
DXS field
a bunch of others, these are just the most recent.

i have been quite happy with the DXS bronze, and even the XO v1 wasnt bad. i was just wondering if there was a better paint to go with, or just stick with DXS bronze?

thanks,
nick

First thing I would do is buy a case of Evil or all star or GI 4/5 star just so you know what its like to shoot some of the best paint out there. NOW you can decide how much money you want to put into your paint and whether its worth it or not.

Try APX paint its a good price

I prefer to shoot the best paint I can for the best price, I am partial to shooting
Nelson Anarchy... You can find it online for $60+

I would say the shell is great and the fill is thick, not ultra evil thick
But close... It seems that most of the paint that was super thick in the early 2000's is no longer that way, I think to many fields were complaining about cleanup.

Agree. Have shot it almost exclusively for 7 years and always trying to find an equal if if isn't available. Gerty difficult to match lot after lot

I think he means it's consistently hard to beat.

Same great fill and shell hardness. It has been shooting fine through a 682 except for one batch, I had to buy a .679 back.

Apxgear fyre shot pretty good when I tried it in 2010, however most people will agree that the quality of fyre has dropped.

Ultra evil has been so consistent that last year we bought $3000 of it in one shipment, based on previous performance. I wouldn't do that with any other ball. It took forever to shoot it all, as we are pump players, yet it shot well after10 months of storage.

Evil has always been the best paint on the market, and always will be.

OLD FEEDBACK!

Why do people do this wanna-be hk thing? I mean hk people dont even play paintball, they just whine and start drama while wearing the ugliest stuff. Seriously you find light blue and pink to be attractive colors for your parents 1500 dollar investment (your gun/marker)? If you want to whine keep it off the field and save it for the internet; O wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO! Haha, if you don't play then don't whine.


I want your G6r parts and upgrades, sell them to me, because you wont get anything for them if you sell/trade them with the gun.

I used to shoot all star through my luxe and evil through my pump. I only run evil now because the rise in accuracy, consistency, and breakability is huge.

I must say I have liked evil and ultra evil, never cared for marbs.

For my bucks, I love Valken Redemption. The most freakishly consistent and round paint I have used. To top it off there is the sweet packaging. Glossy pimp box, with individual cardboard sleeves for added padding and moisture packets in each 500 round bag. They went, *ahem*, balls to the wall on these balls.

VALKEN!
