Never seen this paint before......

My mom got me this for Christmas:




Are they any good? I checked Draxxus's websita and they seem to be superior to Draxxus Gold. What do you think?


They better be good, they where really damn expensive.

Back in the day, Hellfire was the best paint made. I am not sure now, but I would say it is still top of the line Tournament paint.

Marbalizer? Aren't they low end paintballs? Because I can get them for $350 Pesos.

EDIT:

I checked, why are they so expensive in the USA? (Checked on Empire's website, they are $79.95 Dollars ).

Marbs are one of the best tournament paintballs there are.

Really? That's great news for me. My local shop sell's them for $350 pesos de box. But the owner seems to be oblivious to the paintball's potential, he called them "low end paintballs" .

They might send the "seconds" from the marbalizers production to other non-US markets but not changing the name or box. Normally seconds get sold as white box. Give them a shot, marbs are really good paint.

Yeah, pretty sad when you think about how much markup they're putting on it here in the states.

at field prices or shop prices?

65 generally around here for regular marbs and 75-80 i think for ultra marbs at shop prices. add 20-60 bucks for field prices


nah i'm whining because field paint markup is like 100 bucks for a box of draxxus field

Pretty sure they were originals. They sell seconds to (Apparently from a mexican brand named "Madness", they call them "First" paintballs. They collect left-over paintballs from other paintball companies and sell them under that name. Sometimes they are great, and sometimes they are horrible ), but they cost around the same as the original Marbalizers, so there is no point on buying them.

Pretty sure they are the originals. It doesn't surprise me, in a way, that they are cheaper. Paintballs tend to be cheaper in Mexico (Depends where you get them, sometimes they are way more expensive).

I know that Draxxus has headquarters in Mexico; since mexican's manpower costs less than the american one, and since paintball compaines cannot have the luxury of deciding to put the price they wish (because they are not huge businesses like Coca Cola, General Motors, etc) at least talking about paintballs, it is fair to think they'll be cheaper.
