I miss playing at night with the glow in the dark paintballs and using the UV ricochet hopper

Chronic, All Star, old Marbalizers, that was all good stuff. Some other budget paint wasn't too bad. For some reason I liked Zap Sport. Overall I just miss having choices. I think having more choices helped keep companies honest. I remember a field I worked at would just call a place up and say "Hey, this paint sucks, fix it or I'm going with another company."

Now since we said nostalgic and not GOOD, I vividly remember Brass Eagle Bluestreak and Wildstreak. People complain about Monsterballs, mostly from ******Mike doing that video on it (might as well be meme status) but Wildstreak was in a whole 'nother ballpark. The shell was made of this clear, plasticy sort of material and the fill was extremely extremely thin and liquidy, like watered down oil. If you left it in the sun for more than an hour, the fill would turn clear and you'd have a clear shell, clear fill ball. The paint was hard, and it broke weird and cut your skin if you had exposed skin.

I wanted to do a video of those too so I picked up a bag on eBay. Usually, old paint needs a good towelling down. The old Marbs I picked up all needed to be towelled, but are OK now. The Wildstreak is 100% fine, no residue, so nothing leaked out of the shell or transpired. I took one ball that was dented a little (a few extra came in another box) and I doused it in water and left it on the counter. The next day, the dent was gone and the shell was still hard. The paint was shootable. I'm super curious to know WHAT the shell was actually made of.

Pro-Ball Platinum with the glitter in the fill to rid of wiping status, marb green and black or red and black, nelson paint. I remember the good old days. Midnight always had the scent of marshmallows in the bag.

All-Star with the yellow shell and small black stars was always fun to shoot. Never knew if you'd bounce 20 or break 20 in the barrel.

xball silver was my go to favorite at tournaments back in the day. Evil, PMI - and one I can't remember, but my local field ordered it just because I bought the hell out of it, lol! I refused too play with anyone that used Blue Streak or whatever they were from Walmart. Hard as marbles and the paint sucked.

Pmi premium with that satin pink shell. Best paint ever in my big bore tippmann barrel back in the day. Team colors was great as well. Always felt like I was getting a deal with the 2500 count case size. Lol

So far he's got his own cat, his own paintball field, and his own box fort with cat; of course he's got girls.
He's on the gravy train with biscuit wheels, what more could he want?

Big Ball was popular, and cheap, but often times was notorious for being too strong and never busting.

anarchy and powerball(used to come in two 1000 round bags) was some of the straightest shooting paint I have shot. The old imperial was the most staining stuff I remember.

Rps/pmi premium gold is what that was. Step up from premium and a step down from marbelizers. Shot straight as hell, and worked best on cockers and any other soft shooting gun. Mags hated it, too brittle.

Rps/pmi premium was my all time favorite. Shot this almost exclusively every weekend.
Rps/pmi marbelizers green black shell were my absolute favorite. Shot straight and broke on anything I was shooting at.

Tried the hellfire a few times and liked it, just feel like all the other diablo paint I tried sucked.
