Question Pump Paint?

Does anyone know a good, yet not 60$ a case paintballs that would be good to use for pump?
One of the reasons i started playing pump was because the economic factor and if i need to buy $60-70 paint i dont see that im saving too much.
Feel free to comment what type of paint u use and how much it is per case, just so i can get an idea of what the nation is using.
THANKS GUISE

Use field paint, you don't need to buy a case at a time when you good out and play.

you are doing it wrong if you are using a case of paint per day. I hardly use a bag of paint when I play all day

Im just wondering if theres a good yet inexpensive paint to buy?

Thanks man, this is exactly what i was looking for!

I usually use this stuff when playing with my etha and my only problem with it would be the thin fill, other than that it is great.
I just need to decide whether or not it is worth it to get more expensive paint for that thicker fill.
But hey for $38~ a case its not half bad.

IMO the fill is fine for what it is just keep the paint cool in a cooler some ice packs it thickens the fill a bit so it don't look so runny and will make the paint more brittle at the same time

It's all depends on your region. But in SoCal alot of the teams prefer Ultra Evil. And in a day I can use up to 2 bags for practice. When I play recball I use about little over half a bag.



Peace-

I like Marbs and I've used smoking dragon too, stuff shoots amazing when you get a fresh batch.
Especially when they are sized .684 and shooting out my Kaner.

Oh forgot to mention the paint I use. Ultra Evil almost exclusively.
The trick to budget paint IMO is identifying the best-shooting and/or the freshest paint you can get. The brand is mostly about the marking ability of the paint, which is quite important, you want your hits to be as visible as possible. If you get a dark blue paint for example, you are going to have a ton of hits go unnoticed/uncalled. But depending on storage/freshness/batch the same paint brand can vary widely in performance as far as accuracy and breakage.

I use a bag a day in about 5 hours and that's if i'm activly trying to shoot a lot of paint. I prefer marbalizer or custom blend. always seems to shoot great for me.
