If it shoots like the old Hellfire or Imperial (I think) I would gladly pay $80 a case. Considering we used to pay $100 case for 2500 balls it is pretty much the same, and pretty amazing the price hasn't gone UP in 20 years. I know the price of the truck I bought 17 years ago has doubled.

If you expect good paint at $30 a case, well you are an idiot.

Haha, is it sad that PbNation has made me way more positive online than I used to be?

Pretty true all around. The packaging does look good, but I am hoping this is a commitment to making quality paint. Nothing makes a good day of paintball great faster than awesome shooting paint.

"eco" means more water, probably.

I've only shot maybe 3 cases of GI paint (2-star) in my life, and it did pretty good.

Then again, I've shot some Marbs since they took over...and it made me depressed. It's nothing like the Marballizer of old. I wish they'd bring back the old Marbs instead of suing other companies for making paint that far outperforms their crappy new Marbs.

I'm i think the guy was saying in his 10 years of playing recent gi paint has been the worst.

Which I have to agree with, I have used only gi for 2 years and have had constant issues.
I'm really hoping this new gi paint is similar to old draxxus paint, that stuff was great.

And larger bore size would be amazing, I'm sure many of us have markers and barrels we can't even use right now because smaller paint sizes.

Hopefully, they'll have better paint this year. After last year they lost my business.

I'd love to see GI step their paint game up. I've tended to pick APX and Valken consistently over their paint. Sort of wish that it wasn't so bouncy. I've actually had incoming GI paint bounce off my dome (head) plenty of times! With the use I've given it myself my issues were never with inaccuracy but with the shell brittleness itself and the fill; while it being dense is a good thing for making it difficult to wipe, at the same time it isn't as runny as I'd like to leave those big and obvious hit marks.

Maybe it will be better, because it needs to be in my opinion.

Kee was crap before GI bought them so you really can't blame GI for
that.

I'd settle for Silver and Bronze...Bronze was my favorite "low end" paint...

Draxxus was good stuff in the past. Hellfire though!

I was going to say the exact same thing. I am absolutely amazed by the lack of reading comprehension skills.

Also every experience I have had with GI paint has been negative. Multiple fields and everything from 1-5 Star.

The packaging is probably good. But New packaging isn't that great. I remember doing Draxxus silver star for tournaments and that would be the best paint my old team would have. I hope it performs like that.

All I want is a guarantee on the box of a .687 ball or bigger. Small paint irks me big time. I used to shoot .693 chronic that would cover an entire lens. Paint nowadays occasionally rolls past detents.

I was honestly impressed with the DXS basic/silver I shot last summer down at Fox and at Ohare. Wasn't redemption or evil but it shot VERY VERY well for $40 retail paint. Hellfire as you'd expect is extremely nice paint.

DXS Silver is still produced .. woudlnt suggest it for tournament play but it's a good practice ball. If you want tournament DXS/Procaps stuff .. Hellfire

When will this new paint start hitting the fields?

My local field is getting ready to reopen and they are going to carry Heat and Marbs.

I have no interest in the Heat but would really like to come on here and brag about how good the Marbs are shooting but if they still suck, I will be very vocal about that also...

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.
