Best cheap paint?

Whats the best cheap paint? Not cheap as in 10 bucks for 2000, but you know like 30-40 for a few thousand. Cheap practice paint needed and it has to be good, not the best, but good. I usally prac with monster balls (Its just about the only paint that I can get that I dont have to order online) They work ok. Whats your opinion on them (remember guys it cheap paint, please dont just say "they suck" lol) There realy small but I just figured I can get a small bore CP for them.

Actually Diablo Heats are teh sux. They don't seem to break well. I've shot people from 10 feet away and about 3-4 out of 10 break. Try some Spank, I've found that on average 6-8 out of 10 shots break. Much better and about the same price.

Monster balls, scorch, super swirl have all worked well for me.

Heat sucks. It expands quickly and never breaks. It's jammed my halo twice in the past week from the paint swelling in the heat. Xball Bronze is the same price and a lot better.

Rainbow is the best paint besides straight up Hellfire/Inferno. It's like 20 or so. I can get it for like 12 a case, so I'm guessing it's around 20.

Idk monster balls have always seemed to break well for me, they seem like they are a pretty good softness to me, its just there so small. So scorch, super swirl and I can try some spank and xball.

Don't get cheap Wal*Mart ****. Call Draxxus and get some Rainbow. It's the best paint you can get besides a case of Hellfire or team Inferno.

Draxxus Rec Ball paint is pretty good, and Zap Spank is alright, not as good as the Rec Ball... Scorch isn't bad, only paint i'd ever buy from walmart.

.... the X-ball bronze is more expensive compared to these other paints. Like $40-$45. X-ball bronze is as much as eliminator and midnight paints, but those are not considered to be "Cheap."

Maybe we need to define cheap. How about if you can find a case under $40 almost all of the time, not just when there is a sale.

Can you order direct from Draxxus? I really like Blaze. Super paint. Nelson is doesn't like to break. The field I play at has been using a lot of Hemmorage lately. Man I'm getting bruised up.

It's not REALLY cheap, but I like the JT Freedom Paint. You can find it at Sports Authority of Modells.

I would assume you have Zap in the United States? I buy a pack of 2000 Zap brand paintballs (usually Cryptic) for $49.99 CDN. I don't find that it breaks very much at all and it's what I basically use all the time.
