You're in a tournament or at a field and their paint is pure garbage. Everyone's breaking paint left and right but your gun, or someone else's isn't. What is it?

My axe with the boss bolt shot lasers with the shittiest paint and didn't break a single ball of GI 4 star on a rainy day.

On that note I just got a case of the proto paint (which is shit, dimpled and all) and my dm was chopping every 8th ball and my bossed axe shot it clean.

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.

Isn't more expensive paint more brittle and cheaper paint more resistant?

Usually, yes; however, expensive brittle paint is also round and holds together at the seams.
Cheap, breaks-in-your-gun paint can sometimes be overly brittle, but it usually is just so old or poorly made that the seams are weak and/or the balls themselves are so deformed that they don't feed properly.

Oh that makes sense. So shit paint breaks since it won't fit right or its seams are weaker, Not that the shell itself is brittle.

Both my Axe Pro (Boss Bolt) & Luxe 2.0 almost never break any paint. That and I can say for the Axe being less than 1/2 the price of the luxe, with a BOSS bolt it shoots almost as smooth, just not as comfortable in the hands and beautiful... :)

I had an SP1 for a bit too. Over 6000 rounds put through that gun in one summer, never broke a ball. Just never got used to having a stock.

I have yet to break paint through my GoG eNMEy, and I've used the good quality RPS Premium and Evil paint at Disruptive to the shitty whitebox paint from my other local field, and it hasn't broken one out of the 3 cases I've shot through it. But it's a relatively new gun, so I'm not sure.
So far, the only gun that I'm sure won't break paint is either my eXTCy or my single shot musket.

My EGO does great unless we are at a tournament and get crap paint. Fresh paint always helps and non-dimpled paint is a plus as well. Also, make sure that the bore size matches up because that can cause the paint to break. Plus, you get mentos out of some of that cheap paint which causes a jam in your hopper and then game over <_<

I've only put one case of paint through my 98C ACT, however thus far not a single chop/break.

I can be a bit of a smartass and even an a-hole. Please bear with me.

My clone VX has been awesome for me, best shooting, most reliable I've ever owned. Shot flawlessly in a 37* 15bps tourny, never broke one ball, or had any problems, when my team mates Geo2 and Axes went down through the day.
I had my first break in it this weekend, but the paint was so brittle it was breaking in hoppers from moving around the field lol.

for me it has never really been the gun i was shooting. My axe and drone have both broken paint (my g6r has not since i have not played with it yet) but the main cause for the paint breaking was really crappy paint that was completely oblong and one time, i decided to shoot indoor paint outdoors, that didn't end well.
