I was recently quoted an increase of 33% in 5 star cases for teams at events in Europe.

So 60 a case for paint becomes 80. Hmmm...

It may stay the same with the paint now being US based, if you're in the US. If you aren't it'll probably go up. The recent fluctuations in currency prices don't help

then they submit an example for comparison to the patented and then the competition.
But left out of all of the pictures of the comparison for the patent offices the is the stack of money
next to the submission and the contract with promises for knee pads, GI's interns, and lip balm
to be suppled to every desk in the patent office.

at least is this how Id imagine how it works.
just imagine if you only make a superior product form the beginning....
fewer stacks-o-cash *bribes*, fewer lawyers, and no intern/kneepad/lipbalm clauses.

good for GI,
fewer cork screws and curve balls. at least one thing out from that enterprise can fly true.

GI Paint is consistently the worst paint I have used over the last 10 years of playing.

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

Wait, so does this mean that the DFT fill is not eco friendly? Or is it just not as "eco friendly" as the "eco friendly" version? Was I under the mistaken impression that, pretty much by 2017, ALL paintballs were biodegradable and/or "eco-friendly"?

HK paint.. I've had 5 cases of it at practice. Only one was able to be shot out of my guns. I tried an ego, geo, etek, dm, axe, and not a single one could shoot the paint without breaking every other ball.

GI and valken are the only solid paint brands around me

You can polish a turd but in the end, it's still a turd.

They should have stuck to the old 4 star manufacturing plant. Those balls shot like lasers.

It's just an ad describing the make-up of the ball.... I guess if i have to explain this then, well nevermind.

KEE/Empire went bankrupt they were bought. Not sure about the formulation but I'll try and get some info for you

nice marketing. hoping the paint is affordable and shoots straight, haven't had the best luck with GI paint from 1star to marbalizers. Can we expect larger bore sizes?

It is completely against my nature but I will try to be positive about this...

Give GI credit for acknowledging the quality issue and trying to take the steps to make all of us crybabies happy. Not an easy task.

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.

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

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

Deep breaths and let's wait and see if the paint is good or this is all just a marketing gimmick

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.
