Best paint for the G5?

I have recently purchased the new G5. I have a buddy that bought the Blitz and had issues with the higher end paint. I was wondering the best paint for rec ball that doesn't cost $70 a case. I also don't want the crap paint that shoots sidewinders. Cheers guys!

any decent mid grade paint will work fine.

I used Valken Vtac Echo, its $44.95 a case and is way consistent, and shot money out of my G5. I used a .679 freak barrel

Same concept applies to all markers. Pick the paint that works for your budget. Typically, the higher the paint costs, the higher the grade and the better quality it is in terms of roundness, minimal seam, good fill, good shell characteristics.

As for the stock barrel sizes, I thought DP switched over to 0.689 bore sizes with the FX. Could be wrong though. At any rate, 0.690 or 0.689 bore is still a good size for overboring most paint (at least for paint we get here in Cali). If you want to underbore, you are going to need something like a 0.682 to 0.685. I use either my 0.682 or mostly my 0.679 Disruptive for underboring paint.

i keep hearing that paint is too small for the big bore barrels, does it hurt to be 2 or 3 bore sizes bigger than the paint? i was under the impression that if u drop a ball into a barrel back its supposed to catch or at least not drop all the way without resistance...

It's a matter of opinion and/or preference. Some like to overbore, in which case the stock barrel is fine. I like to underbore as much as I can so the stock barrels are just too big for the paint that is available to me. IMO, there are some significant gains to be had by underboring (higher fps at the same pressure which translates to lowering the OP and getting better efficiency and the shot itself easier on paint).

check your balls and make sure they're round and don't have dimples, also try bore matching.

no, you'll have to find that out when you open the paint. see if you can borrow someone's freak kit or ask if they have smaller bores/barrels that you can use.

tell me if this sounds stupid, but u say that underboring can be unconsistant, what if u underbore with a longer barrel? and what effect does underboring have on breaks?

underboring and overboring can both be consistent if done properly. too much of a squeeze can break the ball, too big of a bore will kill your efficiency. a barrel longer that 16" is pointless, puts too much drag on the ball.
