This thread will have multiple questions, please quote the specific question with your answer as i'm lazy and a newbie trying to make this a fun hobby
So my PB field is really strict on the type of paint that is allowed at the field minus on Fridays. I was curious to know if anyone ever shot this brand and what do they think of it? http://paintballgate...sphspfipa1.html
They also allow the empire evil which to me seems a bit more expensive, but I take the "you get what you pay for" really seriously and bought a case of that instead. Though ansgear has this for 75, local shop sells for 55 for the same case. Looking to see if there is any other good grade paint compared to this that wont chop or brittle as easily, but is branded or marked with SC. Current set up, empire axe with freak barrel kit.
Now with the general question out of the way, I still haven't used my evil paint as I signed up for a membership and they gave a bag for free for signing up, and I pretty much conserved that bag leaving about 1/2 a pod full with 2.5 hours of play before heading off to work. I asked 1 player a general question about pretty much storing the paint, he advised to keep non open paint in bag and rotate from time to time but at least once a week. Now i didn't know how trigger happy I would get so I filled my hauler with 2 bags, and now not sure if to leave it there and rotate once in a while to not cause dimples or to attempt to put some back in the bag. One of my coworkers used to be a paintballer but has left the sport temporarily, and said leaving in hauler is fine but I don't want to waste 2 bags full.What would be best in this type of scenario, I live in Southern California (AKA SC) and weather isn't so bad but currently high 30's to low 80's with 0% humidity.
Another coworker is still active in paintball and he is very pro watery based paint and we compared the two, but I think the more thicker paint would be better against opposing team right? We smashed 1 paintball and smeared to compare both, the evil paint was more thicker and it would seem it would be hard to wipe off in a heated battle. His reasoning for not buying thicker paint was "if we get hit we have less time to wipe paint during our break and we have a chance to be called out for old paint," but since we're not facing each other that would be a good thing to my standards at least. I'm such a smartass and sometimes can take things and make them too technical, but the technicalities for thicker paint imo would be better to guarantee the kill if you ask the ref to paint check player.
I know this sounds like a lot to ask for but I want to make this a serious hobby on my days off to blow steam from the new frustrations I deal with at work daily (phone service tech). That and to also enjoy and have fun
