PMI Advantage paintballs

Is it just me, or is the New Advantage Seamless Paintballs really suck!

My team and I used the a case of Advantage Paintballs each, we had a lot of paint breaking inside the barrel. I would have to say that we had about every 4-9 shots of paintball breaking. Maybe it was the shipment that they might have received was bad or something but I personally don't like the paint. I'm going to try and test out my Last case of paint sometime later on and see if I still get the same results, but I think the paint is horrible.

I like the PMI Gold paint, they shoot very nice, and no breaks in the Gun that I know of.

I shoot a bag of the advantage premium and a bag of the advantage marb last practice. Both shoot great for me.

Theirs some good posts on this subject in the paint/barrel forum.

Talking

i LOVE the new PMI advantage stuff, i have played many games with it and have prolly shot about 2500 of them, i have had like 2 of them break in my barrel, and they always shoot straight pretty much, they break on the target really well too!.

Altho the PMI Premium Gold is probably still my favorate paint, i would recommend PMI advantage and i would HIGHLY recommend PMI gold for anyone.

i have shot 3/4 cases of this new paint out of a few different guns. Shocker,cocker,mimimag, model 98, and spyders. Not one of those guns broke paint at high ROF. shot very well, and breaks great. maybe it was a paint/barrel problem you were having. "my new choice of paint."

you would think a paintball with no seam would have less chance of breaking than one with a seam. i hope this seamless stuff dosnt become mass produced to RP Sherer and other companies untill people test it to see if its better or not.

it does have a seem. very little. The paint breaks very easy and can be shot out of all guns. i shot it in a shocker, cocker,model 98, and a spyder with no breaks. i just shot it for the first time today out of my freak and OMG. Love it.

I love the stuff. I got an early batch and it ruled.

I don't know what you guys are complaining about.

I own a field so I have gone through skids of every major brand out there and I have found that the new advantage is the best paint I have ever had. It is not affected by humidity. It has no seam. It does not dimple easily. It shoots straight.

With ANY paint you will have bad batches or cases (sometimes just from being on top the skid where the sun can get to it while it sits in transit on a loading dock somewhere). but I have gone through 300 cases this year and found it to break less in the barrels of my rental piranhas than ANYTHING else, ever. The bounce rate is thankfully lower too.
