Has anyone used INKA gold and have an opinion on it?

I used to get RPS all of the time but Badlands stopped carrying them in store :(

I found that Inka Gold stained pretty badly. (at least last seasons)
I mean, bright fills. But who ever you shoot is going to hate washing their shit.

Daaamn. :(

I guess I'm going to be finding a new favourite paint this season.

Locally all I can get it:

INKA - Everything I've ever shot from them has been dissatisfying. For the price of Copper I'd rather shoot RPS Stinger, for the price of Silver I'd rather shoot Formula 13 or RPS Premium, and I've never shot Gold but Marballizer shoots like a dream. I've yet to try INKA Silver Firegod though.

  • Zing
  • Graffiti
  • Redemption
G.I. Sports Paint - I've heard good things about these I think.

G.I sports isnt bad, the mid range stuff shoots really well actually.
My favorite of all time is DraXxuS silver.
however most shops dont carry it anymore which makes me sad face. (the GI sports kinda reminds me of it)

yeah it is, they just bought them out i think.

After doing some reading i think I'm going to give valken redemption a try. Seems to get good reviews.

we shoot GI at practice for indoor and it shoots pretty good, outdoor ive only ever used rps premium and polar ice. Both are great and reasonably priced.

well from my experiences for paint in toronto I have used spectrum, inka, premium gold, GI and Draxxus and some evil but that shit was old and horrid. The best paint had to be draxxus shot straight didn't stain and had a nice fill semi thick fill. Inka paint was stupidly thick IMO and stained. Nothing worse than stains in my book. the fill was also so thick that you had to get a towel to wipe it off your hand just wouldn't seem to manage the task. I think all around premium is the best but it is far more expensive

i carry RED LEGION (which is same owner as RPS) competition grade, green silver shell white fill

$50 cases always RENTERS and OWNERS, BYOP DAYS $40

cash and carry $40

10 cases - $375

We used this crap at wasaga this past summer and it was possibly the worst paint I have ever shot. Inconsistent sizing, shape(half looked like footballs), stay away from these at all costs. This is not competition grade paint in any sense of the word.

The Inka gold is pretty good, especially for the price. Is it as good as marbz, or ultra evil i'd say nope but worth the money.

inka gold is impossible to wipe off. it rinses well and it didnt' stain on me. it is incrediblty brittle. IT was breaking paint inside a dm6 all day. he gave me a pod because he was tired of it breaking in his gun. i shot a few and broke a lot too. it was also really cold. like 13 degrees.

i shoot inka silver, it's the cheapest non 4th run paintballs i can find.

red legion is specially made xo industries paint made for fields. Kee owns XO now but red legion is no way RPS. Since RPS does not have any factories in canada. XO has 2, and teh box clearly says made in canada. It's on par with spectrum and that wierd camotac/inka copper 4th run super thick shell stuff. bounces all day at 235 fps.

It was something about the paint quality being inconsistent.

shipping from canada is better than shipping from the US?

The only place i can get paint is from badlands which is really near paintball nation. So i have to buy inka paint :( Once i get my sales license, i might have a cheaper way of getting paint.

SO I shot a case of Inka Gold for the first time last weekend.

It wasn't any better than the rec paint, honestly. The shells are more brittle, obviously, but I found it to be REALLY inconsistent flight-wise. lots of diagonal zingers, and even a few breach breaks, which I haven't EVER had shooting other brands of paint.

so all in all, whon whonnn.

I tried inka gold for the first time this weekend and found it performed well. I didn't get any breaks in the barrel although, idiotically enough I did shoot one inside the barrel bag before the first match started as I wasn't fully awake yet. I found it flew about as well as could be expected. It broke very well and was an easy to spot super bright yellow which I liked. All in all I enjoyed it. Was firing through a geo 2.1. <br>

XO only has one Factory in Brampton. They make the Inka for badlands. I know this because I use to work for them.

It's the gold you're commenting on right?

With INKA copper and silver I have not been impressed with the flight path the paint takes.

Yer kidding, right?

INKA shells are more fragile than the hopes of an obese kid at fat camp. Even the copper pops if you look at it sideways. Maybe when I get my Demon I'll be brave enough to try it out again. Maybe, but I don't think I currently own a marker that's gentle enough to shoot INKA without spending most of my time squeegie-ing out my barrel and swearing like a Teamster...

No the inka gold is one of my favourite paints to use other than formula 13

Maybe the humidity takes a large effect on it. I shoot silver, at a distance of (I think) 50-75 feet, it had a spread of about 2-3 feet. This is all taken from memory, so it may not be accurate.

Although I have to say, it shoots fairly decent here (in Alberta).

It does stain a bit, but I just wear old clothes.

i shoot a shocker and it seems to be okay with gold. I remember a DM9 and a Victory unable to shoot gold without breakign in the breech.

I'd stick to silver. copper is like spectrum shelled. and silver breaks at hip level but the seams are a little tall.
