Why ban ZAP?

Okay, I know ZAP paint is crap, but why do so many places ban it??? I could see reffs warning players that ZAP is a waste of money, but why ban it?

My local field uses zap primer for their field paint. I have experienced no bad stuff at all with zap. They use green orange and another local field uses yellow. I think its pretty good stuff actually.

I like Zap, you just gotta use it when you buy it. Can't let it sit.

Beleive it or not, it is not the field that is banning the use of ZAP, but their insurance carriers. It was explained to me that if a field uses a paint that stains, they are opening themselves to possible claims for replacement of clothing/equipment (not of players, but for the insured field owners).

Many fields limit the color of paint used on their airball fields for the same reason.

I have never used it, so I can't offer an opinion about it.

have ya used any of the zap SPANK lately? It's purple shelled, soft, oily, dull purple fill and not one single round ball in all the 4 cases I got. I used to really like the spank when it had the dark green shell and a nice pink fill and the balls were ROUND. They changed something!

I see when I hit people from across the field, I see a BIGASS orange splat, makes me feel good.And yes, it's the only paint besides Evil Ultra that you can't wipe, why do you think it's one of the main paint sponsors for NPPL, cause you can't wipe that crap.

I have used ZAP before.... and never noticed it stained....

but the WGP paint (domination and the other one) Stained like heck. I hit somebody in the hand, and the next day(after washing it several times) it was still there. Luckily it was just a 2v2 practice and we all had blue jerseys lol.

I use Hellfire and a teammate didn't clean a hit off his lens for about 10 minutes, when he did it had a big ol stain.

I would say Hellfire>Ulta Evil>Chronic don't like any of the lower grades of ZAP.
