Bought two cases of JT splatmaster paint today.

Shell: The shell is brittle, the seams are even and the ball is very round. I am assuming that the paint that I got is fresh, with no dimples or broken balls in the bag.
Fill: The fill is meh, its bright but not very thick.
I will post more when I get to shoot this stuff this weekend.

definitely excited, but i am going to probably buy a kit, just don't have the time, or materials/tools to make one.

The paint broke on target nearly every time and left a good sized splat. In my opinion this is a great step forward for .50cal, will it ever phase out .68cal? Absolutely not. However, if you want to make your ego/etek quiet as hell with mad amounts of firepower at your fingertips this is what you want to get into. The pinokio is a great option to use, buy a sport shot hopper and cut the adapter for the pinokio boom you have a bad ass 700 round .50 cal hopper. I have experienced one jam with it so far, and a quick off/on on the hopper solved it quickly.
If you have the money to spend for shits and giggles go ahead and get it it is fun and a great option for playing against little kids, because well, it doesnt hurt at all. At pointblank through my paintball pants it barely hurt at all, on bare skin pointblank it felt like a .68cal from ten feet. .50 cal is fun and rather cheap after the start up costs.
