I was wondering what are some paintballs that I can buy 2000 for less then $80. I'm trying to spend around 40 and I came across these http://www.sportsaut...rentPage=family I didn't know if their trash I'm using an invert mini with empire 68/4500 and halo hopper. Also why isn't their a category on here for selling paintballs?

Dont buy your paintballs online. If you absolutlely must buy from an actual paintball site like ANSgear, Zephyr Sports, etc.

Ask to open the case and check for broken or dimpled paint with an associate and ask them how long they have sat on the shelves if you go to a sports authority.

Sports authority would be fine if there is one in your city but best place is a pro shop or the field. Anytime you buy paint regardless where you get it just check it for dimples and that stuff. Just a quick skim for dents and broken balls are really what you're looking for.

Also if you just hang out around online, just read some reviews on paint that your local store carries to get the best bang for your buck.

Apparently Wal-Mart carries RPS/Empire paint now so as much as I hate the store your best bet might be checking there.

Buy some Valken Infinity paintballs my friend uses them in his Empire Axe. I just asked him about them he said he loves them and they are great!
Been Playing Paintball for 2 years.... Also recommend me a New Gun For Under $275!

I would pony up the extra cash for Fate or even better, Graffiti if you're actually going to be playing with this paint. We use Infinity for the rental guns at the field I ref at and they are extremely dimpled and are almost squishy, which means they hardly ever break on your target.

Where do you live? I know prices in the great north are much much higher in some places here in the states so that might be one of your issues. It also depends on what your playing for regular everyday games just buy the cheapest crap possible for events you usually want to pay more...

Rps premium is good, as with gi 3 star. Ive grown a liking to empire paint. But go buy the paint at a pro shop or the field you go to. Stuff in stores have probably been sitting there for months.

I really like draxxas bronze blaze. I pay $45 for a case and it flys real nice and always breaks on target. I never had one bounce on an opponent. If you wanna spend a little more marbleizers are great too. I pay $60 for those at my proshop.

They're great until the cold northeast months hit. They out of necessity I have to switch to frostbite. I can't wait to retire to a place where I can use good paint year round.

If you can find seconds sometimes you can get pretty good deals.I've gotten Hellfire amd Inferno at $25 dollars a case just because it was the start of a run and they were tweaking the shell color in. Of course you never know what you're going to get til you open the case.

I saw this stuff in sports authority that was there since 2012 and had like 15 ball breaks in each bag but I've never shot it so... but for $40 I would buy something from Valken they have great paint.

Has anyone else used JT Competition?

I picked up a 500 round bag of it yesterday, and it shot pretty well IMO. I don't have much to compare it to, and I was only really using it for testing, but it shot straight, was consistent enough that I got a nice smooth arc going, didn't leave any grease in the barrel, and didn't get any barrel breaks. If you're using a STBB, I'd avoid it though. Waist high drop = breaks. In my extcy shooting between 280 and 340 (why I was testing...) I had no issues. I'd like to see if anyone else has experience with this.

Not sure how well it breaks on people; I only shot trees.

Oh and in case this isn't unprofessional enough yet.

Fuck, shit, boobs, purple monkey dishwasher.
