Will this be allowed again this year?

I never get wipers, blood is hard to wipe off.

I was talking to someone from the field and they said that most likely that's what they are going to do is have you bring your own .50 cal

We did have 50cal last year and we had a pretty good price on it. I would rather you not bring your own since it will create issues. If people get shot by something that is not the color of what we are shooting, people have a tendency to wipe and keep on going. Then complain to a ref about off field paint... then refs start checking... Causes a big hassle.

Will JT Slatmaster ammo be available?Anyone running a Splatmaster as their primary will need the brittler shell so that their paint actually breaks.

What type of paint is available? The diablo stuff is complete garbage IMO. However if we had a steady supply of splat master paint then I would be all over it.

I find splatmaster paint to be really really brittle and chops a lot. Might just be because I was using it in like sup 35* weather. But formula 13 50 cal is good I heard, and cpx is an empire paint field anyway

Yeah I just wanted to check that my Splatmaster would have paint that will break.

When I was shooting it in the summer I had no troubles with it. It could be the cold, or I also could have had an older batch. I don't expect the temperatures to be low in May, so I would assume it would work.


Also. I do not recommend buying .50 cal paint from ans gear. The formula 13/diablo stuff that I received from them was god awful and had nothing but flat spots and dimples.
