What is the oldest paintballs you have ever seen in your paintball life. The reason i asked this is because i had a friend that had some paintballs in his garage for 6 years and didnt know they could go bad.

A speedballer's oldest paintball ever seen is probably about 2 hours since the case was opened...

Paintball joke. :P

I think I had paintballs that were like 5-8 years old, they were in my attic and they had no paint in them, all the paint was in the bottem of the bag.

About a year ago a woman I used to work with found out that I played paintball and she brought me a grocery bag full of paintballs from when she took her family to play. I shot them at my basketball net back board and they wouldn't break. The ones that did break split along the seam.

These guys took 1 year old paint to the field once and were mad because they couldn't use it. They said since they bought it there it was ok(FPO). The field ended up exchanging their paint for new stuff. Other than that any stuff from walmart Posted Image

About nine years old. I found them a couple months ago in a closet, about a half bag. They were from the first time I played.i kept them for a "momento" and forgot about them. They had melted into one big ball.
