personally, JT Stinger Toxin gets the job done for me. They are $25 a case and really no dimples at all. I would say they break more than 75% of the time. Some other people might dis-agree but I have had no problems with them.

I always use Toxin too. I get it for $20-$30 bucks. the way i see it i can have 4 cases of this for the same price as 1 case of high end stuff. 4x the fun. I wouldnt use it for a tournament but for rec play its great.

DXS Midnight hands down. I prefer it over premium and it breaks more than 80% of the time on a person. Also the fill is bright and is pretty thick too. I also like the shell colors :)
I have a video comparing it to other paints, skip to about 1:47 if you don't care about bore sizing.

Draxxus Midnight, JT Rec paint, and Visible Impact. All are decent for the price you pay for them.

Become a sports authority member, it's free and you can get 20-25% of an item each month. I normally there buy the XBall Podium series paintballs. They are tournament lel and are extremely good, in my experience. See te dates on the boxes, the newer ones never have any dimples on em. They cost $45 - the 25%, you paying $34. Awesome stuff for that price.

Ive heard good things about the Diablo Heat. 42 a case

Bacause you have to point your gun at the sky whenever you reload. Just like you have to press your back flat against any kind of cover you may be using, and you have to lift your mask whenever you have something important to say, even if you are under fire from the other team.

Sheesh, what kind of paintball have you been playing?

Two local fields use Diablo Heat as their field paint, so I've had a lot of time to use it. It has a thick shell and bright yellow fill. I've never had one chop on me or seen one swell or clump at the local fields, but this could be due to a good rotation of fresh stock.

I have two basic problems with the paint. The first is that a good number of shots seem to bounce, especially off markers, hands, forearms, and angled flat surfaces. The second is that, after breaking, the shots seem to be powdery or chalky and do not leave a good mark on clothing or especially skin. I've found it's sometimes hard to distinguish a bounce from a hit on open skin because the paint doesn't leave a good mark. Comparison paints like Valken Infinity and DXS Field leave an obvious, waxy glob that you have to peel off.

Valken Infinity if you want super cheap paint that will fly straight and break on target, the fill sucks though. Spend an extra 5 bucks and get Valken Fate. Best rec level paint I have shot.

We normally use DXS Midnight or Diablo Allstar for practices, and for recball I use XO V1's. Those aren't half bad; I haven't had anything go wrong with them yet.

I've been using RPS Advantage from Dick's Sporting Goods. Its $40ish a Case and breaks all the time! Plus really not a lot of dimples.

Draxus Midnight is pretty good. Honestly my favorites are PMI Premium and Empire Custom Blend.

I use ammunition from dicks and if you get a fairly good case they shoot straight all the time and they work great in a flat line. Just make sure you ask to see the bags if you buy some. They are around $40

I typically used Midnight when I'd play with an electro, cheap and quality stuff. Now that I play pump I just buy some top notch paint (1 box of evil has lasted me 3 trips to the field so far, basically shooting a bit over a bag a day and that's if I'm trigger happy) Probably going to start buying just a bag of the field's premium paint whenever I go now.

Pump is cheap :)

So what would be the most accurate, brittle paint you can get for around 40 dollars locally like dick's sporting goods or sports authority
