Currently, I use Echo paint but I feel like I need something that stays truer to its bore. Which paint do you think would work best? I can bore it with the any of the freak inserts.

 

:D :DPlease leave the name and price. :D :D

Never heard of Echo, but I know that GI 1 star, 3 star, is good. RPS Premium, Evil and Heat is great also. Price varies, but if you could tell us how much you normally want to spend, we could help you out a bit more.

What paint do you have access to where you could open the box and inspect it before purchasing?

Any particular reason you didn't include GI 2 star?

I actually have never shot 2 star....thats why. And really 1 star is best for scenario/recball and 3 star is best for during practice. I don't see a need to get the level in between them and pay more/less than you need.

Oh, I gotcha. I had some crappy experiences with 1 star multiple bad batches, while 2 on the other hand has been nothing but great quality.

Two star is slightly less brittle than 3 star but its not brittle enough for most people and at axbl and stuff they use GI 3/4 star

Buy one of these if you want a cheap but nice electro!!!
