As long as you are playing with walk-ons who will probably only be using 500, you should be fine with half- 3/4 a case. Depends on how long you play.

Just curious, what electro did you buy?

Recball, I usually shoot a case or so a day, and when I run out of that if there is time left and I don't want to shell out for another case of paint I grab balls leftover from practice(keep them just for this/drills/chrono/teching my marker) and the pump.

when i travel 3 hours to play, i make it count. its not uncommon for me to shoot 3 cases. but that is like 6 hours and only about 10-15 minutes in between games. casual rec play local i usually shoot a little less than a case.
There are 2 kinds of people in this world. Those who think they can and those who think they can't. both of them are right.

It depends. If I'm just playing rec-ball I will use a little less than half a case. But if all of the tourny players want to go all out, I can go through a whole case in no time.

it's up to you. i've used anywhere from half a bag to 2 cases in a day

For me it varies between a half a case to a case. It all depends what and who Im playing against.

I limit myself to a case for recball, saves money and discourages overshooting renters.
