I really like Valken Infinity paint. Best quality for the price in my experience

Ive used ever $30-$80 a case paint out there, i like spectrum, but the hard shell is not fun to get hit by, valken infinity is also pretty decent also, the last time i bought a case of infinity, they were all foot-ball shaped. Then i tried argo cause it was in the same price range, and it was very good. I was very impressed.

I second this. It's pretty good for the price when it's somewhat fresh, but I feel that cheap paint is bad paint. Good stuff is worth the money.

Custom blend is usually the bottom of the barrel paint that's usable. A couple of times I shot it and it was Premium (bad premium) and the last time I bought it i was shooting Spectrum so it's iffy to me, I would go with Spectrum as it's always been ideal paint for a cheap price, and since it's sold so frequently everywhere it's usually fresh.

Custom blend is a rebranded premium that fields can change the fill and shell colors of for FPO fields.

What you getting at here orange. Premium is much better then custom blend which I might add is horrid in mild or more humid weather, I've seen clumps stick together after a 4 minute game of airball.

Premium and Premium Gold are very different from what I've been told so you might've had gold Jawz.

I bought 2 boxes of agro- it shoots straight for a distance and then it will go left or right as it looses speed.  It's fill was surprisingly thick and bright.

 

I think its $44 a box.  I have not found anything that has been better for the money as of yet.  I'll post pictures off the fill comparison against Evil and Valken graffiti and SCvillage cheap range balls(they shot a tad bit straighter than agro but had a terrible fill). 

 

Without flash:

With flash:

paint2_zpsa85007fc.jpg

 

Top is SCvillage range balls with yellow fill.  The fill is very thin and can easily be wiped.

 

Valken Graffiti with orange- nice and thick fill.

 

Next is Agro with yellow fill.  It was on par thickness with HK, Graffiti and Evil.

 

HK was also yellow fill.  Banana scent, thick fill.

 

Bottom was Evil.  Thick bright fill.

I'm unlucky in the fact that the only paint around besides cheap walmart stuff is Draxxus. It's decent but you could do much better.
