What is your favorite type of paint?

I'm just curious to see what kind of paint you all use, and have used. And also to see what your opinions all the types of paint you have used are. I'll start it off.

Types I have used:
Draxxus Blaze - This is pretty good, I would buy a case for 45 bucks online, and then split it with my friends. Fired good, but they broke alot. Also made everything really greasy because they are super oily when they break in your gun. Almost imposible to clean it all out of your barrel. Also got imperfections from being stored too long, even when stored in a cool, dark place.

PMI Premiums - These are what I use the most. They arent as accurate as the Blaze were with my barrel, but they almost never break, and they are inexpensive at the local place. Almost no imperfections, even after a while. I find unbroken ones out in my woods 3 weeks after a game that still are fine. Seams are pretty darn close to invisible.

No-name Paint (I got it with the gun) - This stuff was horrible. Huge seams, many of the balls weren't round, but somewhat lopsided. Broke in the gun all of the time, and almost never flew straight. But what can be expected from something that only cost $5 for 500 rounds.


Now it's your guys turn. Lets see what kind of paint you use, and what your opinions are.

rps and draxus are good paints. I've only used rps stingers (basically their worst paint) and it was excellent. Shot fine after months in my basement.

Has anyone used PMI marbalizers? They seem to be really good, and are only $48 for a case online.

thanks

Prems is what I like in a game, but monster for just fooling around with my friends. It's cheap and works just fine.

well, i searched the village and found some Evil Midevil for 44, or some worrgames worrpaint for 40 or something like that, and some great american for 40 also. so it will be one of those or marbalizers. im gunna buy a bag of marbles for 18 from my local shop first to try it out. and if i like em, then me and my friend will be ordering a case to split. i only use about 250 rounds per day, so the extra cost doesn't bother me too much.

Anything made by rps is usually pretty good. Marbalizers are decent, but the shell is too thick and they tend to bounce. Draxxus is usually ok, but too small for my phantom and I have double feed problems even with the smallest detent. Blue Arc- The stuff I shot was called circus I believe, and it was amazing paint, my local field doesn't have it though. Evil is pretty much the best though.

Anything my local store has on sale lol. Well mostly Zap Cryptic.

I've use Brass Eagle Afterburner's and they're actually pretty good, probably the only half-decent BE product on the market - a bit steep on the price though.

Uhh, what else... I just bought a box of 2000 PMI Premium's just for something different lol. But I don't really care what paint I use as long as it breaks on you and not in my gun .

My team mostly uses Diablo Nightmare. It seems to be a great paintball for under $40 a case.
