My buddy brought a case of Valken paint the other day to our field, and I don't know what it's called, but we dubbed them salmon eggs because they are a very light pink, almost clear, with a small air pocket that you can SEE. They are high grade paint, and they were fun to throw around, but when we went to fire, their guns wouldn't shoot the balls! The eyes on his mini and his brother's Axe wouldn't register the balls, because of how clear they are. We ended up returning the paint. Have any of you had this problem?

That's interesting, do you happen to have any pics of the paint?

I did notice that redemption actually has a clear and green shell, the fill makes it look yellow and green. I don't use a gun with eyes though so I never noticed any problems with it.


What?! I'm all out of powdered toast?!

Unfortunately, no, he returned it to ANS and picked up some 4 star instead, and I never got a chance to take a picture

all paint has a small amount of air in it. its inharrent in the process.


The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

I know that all paint has the little air bubble in it, I just meant it was the first paint I had seen where you could actually SEE the pocket of air.
