Draxxus is my favorite paint (reason I carry it at my field). Even the cheap stuff (Triumph) is great for the price. Bronze is my favorite because IMO it beats comparable RPS paint. It has a brittle shell, but not so brittle it breaks in the marker. Great fill, it's bright and I have never had a problem with it staining. http://www.procapsdi...t-grenades.aspx, you can find all their paint and msrp.

I like Bronze. Breaks well but not too brittle. Good all around paint. Triumph is pretty consistent size wise but tends to bounce pretty bad. In my experience anyway.

I use triumph and rec-sport for my practice paint, but I always use silver or better at tournaments
My sig was edited / removed because it was not within the rules. Images used in signatures are to be less then Width of 600px, and height of 160px. Only ONE image is aloud in the signature, and it must be 30k or less. Only 5 lines of text are aloud. No text larger then size 2 is aloud in the signature.

My image was over the 30k AND My text was too big I really am a muppet

I like DXS silver the best, not to brittle like gold is and more brittle than bronze is, kind of the best of both worlds.

this is probably the best paint i shoot. Bronze would be cheapest, then Silver, then Gold is at like 65 bucks a case. But that's superb tourny paint. I like to shoot Bronze and their Blaze alot.

Use it. I love the Bronze. I also used midnight before, but it swerved all over the place. Bronze is your
best bet. So consistent and havent had barrel break in like 10 cases(so far :P). It's also a plus that my local proshop
sells it for like $40 a case in the store.

I've shot DXS Custom C from my local field and they shot great. only a few breaks.

I've also used DXS Frostbite with my pilot acs and 98 custom flatline. Not one break!

DXS has the most versatility in prices and quality. That's why they are my favorite!

I've only had the privilege to have used only two types of Draxxus paint, one is Blaze and the other is Frostbite. The rest is just too rare to come by on walk-on sites here but anyway...

Blaze I absolutely love, it was such a good paint, it went through any marker and broke on target easily and was just a superb quality ball. I really wish that the walk-on sites would restock it (not many have it now because it's a relatively expensive paint and players won't pay anything more the 25 for box now! But I'd happily pay more money just to get this paint back on the shelves!) I like this paint so much that I usually compare other paints to Blaze, to me it's the perfect paint for everyday use.

Frostbite on the other hand is a paint that I want to see band at my local sites. The stuff we're getting here is drastrically hard! Today for instance I took some stuff that I had from a previous walk-on to my local shop and showed them how hard it was. We first did a standard 6 foot drop test and didn't have one break, so we decided to throw it into the air to the top of the warehouse's ceiling, which I might add was 30 feet away. Anyway, we threw ball after ball and bounced them off of the ceiling, which was corregated metal onto the concrete below and we had one break out of 30! We we're even throwing them as hard as we could against the side of their banged up van and all the one's we threw bounced off! It's a shockingly hard paint I've found and I'm never using it again, granted it's winter paint and it doesn't break in your barrel but then it doesn't seem to want to break on target either! For me it is truely shocking stuff! One day I may have to do a video just to prove it!

I'LL BELIEVE IN GOD WHEN HE/SHE PHYSICALLY SLAPS ME ACROSS THE FACE!

ive shot draxxus recsport and bronze andhad nothing but bad experience with it. i got a case of gold now due to a replaced bad case and it seems a lot nicer but we will find out..
The lesson here is love your gun dont give a shit about what people say about it.. if it fits you keep it if not move on. I get enough crap from kids who think autocockers are shit when most have never shot one. Every angel I ever shot was smooth but they were out of my range so i went with an autococker instead. Now I have a couple and they are my babies. Love the sport Love your gun whatever it may be and Love yourself .. maybe not in that order. CockerOwnerClub

I've shot XBall Silver, did wonderful, they weren't too brittle. I loved it, broke on impact, and not in my barrel. I will definetley shoot it again. Other than XBall Silver, I shot recsport. For the price, I can't think of much better paint than this in it's price range. Overall, I have had nothing but good experiences with Draxxus paint, and I will continue to shoot it.

Rec sport is good, but event paint gold...jesus does that paint shoot straight.

If you want to get the best paint ever, get event paint gold (hellfire) or ultra evil.
