This is really hard to believe, whenever I shot the Dye paint, it always broke on the opposing player! It has also never chop before! Does anyone know what they will use for tournaments now?

Argument holds plenty of water in New England, where I live, and where I speak from experience.
We had a Dye van roll up to a charity tournament and offered to sell players Dye paint to try out for $75/ case...
Now... where Im from, that a bold "Introductory rate" to offer when the field had 2 other tourney worthy grades available at $60 and $65.
Needless to say, nobody in the tourney had to worry about streams of dark colored paint coming their way.
I also recall several years back when I asked a Dye Rep why their prices seemed higher than any other competitor for the comparable products, and he replied with a shrug,
"Cuz we're Dye... and people will pay it"
Doesnt leave much to the imagination there.
And as far as what they sold it for at PSP events... PSP events are much like conventions when it comes to the vendors/ sponsors.
If youre gonna truck a load of paint (or any product really) to an event half-way (or even all the way) across the country, damn right you're banking on selling it. So of course, you're gonna price it comparable to the vendor next to you who is $15 cheaper for the comparable stuff that will get the job done.
Contrary to what the ads say, its not the paint that wins World Cup... or Chicago... or Dallas.

Meh, shot it once and despite never carrying a swab when shooting my Luxe for every other paint it chopped the dye so bad I couldn't play. Luxe wouldn't shoot without eyes off. The field ended up swapping my case out for a brand new box of meteor after I couldn't even get through the first bag. Shot perfect after that even with eyes off as they were still that gunked up from the Dye they didn't work. First and only ever experience with Dye paint was so bad I'd never even risk it ruining a day of play again.

John confirmed the "Kee thing" but yeah, nothing official on either one from the OP.

Did you guys not see the initial videos of this stuff on youtube or whatever? I don't know if it was just the first batch or what but it was as hard as rocks. The guy in the vid was tossing them up and they were just bouncing and bouncing...not mention too expensive.

A video or two on YouTube is not indicative of the experiences for all users. There are too many factors with paint between manufacture to hopper to judge a brand by such a small sample size.

Local field was using Dye CG as the tourney grade paint, now having to research alternatives.

Think Big Paintball (makers of Meteor) make a tourney grade ball called Delos which seems to get good reviews, so will see what happens.

I've personally been shooting this paint for a while now and I LOVE IT! I tried it one weekend and haven't been able to stop using it ever since. It does cost a bit more, but not as much as Ultra Evil. (Which is the only other paint I like better). I wish they didn't spend so much on over-packaging tho. The fancy, foil-embossed box printing and re-sealable bags are kinda cool, but seem a bit over-the-top and unnecessary for items that eventually get tossed in the trash like dirty toilet paper. Maybe if they kept the packaging simpler, they could have sold it at a slightly more attractive price point?? But I get it. It's Dye. It's "just their style" I guess. I am bummed that Dye is discontinuing production. Damn.

Just bought 5 cases from my local store.. Sorry for all of u guys who have had bad experiences with the paint.. Never had 1 bounce or a broken balls ever.. Been shooting it since it came out.. My local store knows how to store paint apperantly.. Never had a problem.. Sad to see it gone.. And the ultra is more expensive where I play..

Is that for Asia only or everywhere? I know it was released in Asia, Europe and S America before getting to the US.

I know this may sound stupid, but does anyone think that it may have cost too much to manufacture or maybe cause sales might've dropped?

Also I've noticed, whenever I go to a field (I've visited most of Central/South Florida's fields) and runout of paint I end up using some paint other than Dye. So from my experience, it either has to be bought at a store, online, or you can get it at a tournament

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
