Wondering what type of paint most of you shoot. Likes. Dislikes. Etc.

Most of the time, my friends and I have a limited selection because of where we live. So, we normally end up getting Cryptic or Big Ball. We have had decent luck with them as long as we open up the boxes to make sure they don't look like golf balls. Not great paint but since we play rec woodsball, it works and it is fairly cheap at $25-35 a case.

Premium when the field has it. It's usually crappy Valken stuff tho.

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

Generally Graffiti, as it works better for recball and is cheaper than Redemption, but I'll get Redemption Pro, if I am playing Speedball. I wish I could use Dye paint, that shit is so nice...

I like Empire paints the most. Evil or Marbilizer if available and I can afford it are my favorites. Premium and All Star is what I usually use since its cheaper, but still high quality. If I can't get at least Premium, I'll either go with Formula 13 or Valken Graffiti. But I've been much more impressed with RPS Premium then I have with Valken Graffiti.

FPO Empire Custom Blend

My field had that for a while too, but there were too many complaints. That stuff really blowed.
i usually buy spectrum ($50), but now I have some evil and will be shooting premium after.

I play pump. I use RSP Gator Black. Its a all black paintball and you cant see it comming. I love it people in the staging area are saying someone shot them from somewhere and I didnt even see the paint coming. I do not know how well they work in a electro. I'm not sure if the eyes can see the black shell.

Normally I use Empire Custom Blend, or Ultra Evil if I have the money. Gator Blacks are so awesome, but I only use those if my field allows me to. If I one ball, I'll use first strikes, since I only shoot 24 a day max, which is no biggie to my field owners.
