Paint Quality Right NOW!!!!!!!!

What I'm wanting to know is the Quality of the paint we are getting right NOW, and where we are getting it from. I have ordered from alot of different companys and I have ordered the same paint with different quality from different companys. I just ordered some Proball Platinum (green) from A1-paintball and it is dimppled up and will barely fit in my .695 freak insert. I have ordered this same paint from Firstcall and it was perfect. I have shot Allstars from Actionvillage and first order was perfect, the third order I couldn't even shoot. I thought if we new where the bad stuff is right now it might would help in ordering paint and keep some people from getting burned with crap paint. We just need it to stay current with only new paint orders. Just an idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for any info.

Ypu can also go to your local field and paintball pro-shops for paint. They usually have freash stuff, and they always open up the box and let you check it before you buy it.

We play at my house, were I have speed ball field built. There are no local shops near us so mail order is the best way to go. But thanks for the reply.

I see... that's really too bad, because those pro-shops can be really helpful.

If you are worried about that, I would suggest sticking with action village , firstcallpaintball, or orderpaintball. Any store that sells a lot of paint, is more likely to get paint more often, so it is more likely to be fresh. You can also watch action villages stock/in stock stuff, and check for newer stuff.

But I have ordered paint from about 7 different websites. And atleast once from each of those the paint was dimpled. So sometimes it will just happen.

I've only ordered paint from action village, I've never had a problem with them.

I haven't ordered in quite a while. I ordered various brands, and color is irrelevant to quality.

I don't agree on the color thingeeee, I ordered RPS Premium from Actionvillage in green for me and blue for my son. The green shot like crap but the blue shot great. Go figure! Thats the reason I tried to start this link is to find out what people are ordering NOW. I know all about all the tech stuff about paint, its already out there on like 5 million other forms. I thought this was a good idea but if no one is ordering paint or willing to tell what they are getting I guess its going to be useless. Thanks Anyway!!!!!

Paint varies batch by batch, even the same brand from the same company. These are liquid filled gelatin capsules we're talking about. If you ordered green and blue again from the same place, there is no way to tell how either would shoot until you tried them. This also not taking into account how properly/improperly the paint is stored and shipped to you. It's all very hit or miss.

Again there goes the same tech stuff thats on form all around the net. All I'm Asking is what kinda paint people are getting from companies NOW, alot of company ship from the same batch. So if you got Allstars from action right now that sucked, chance are I might wanta wait awhile before I ordered the same paint. This isn't a perfect way to do this but I figured it might save someone some trouble. So quite preaching, if you havent ordered any paint don't waste your time posting stuff we already know. Again thanks.

Hahaha, okay. Normally I'd continue trying to explain the situation further in hopes you'd understand, but you're clearly not worth my time. Maybe someone else will bother and the light bulb will finally click in your head, but I doubt it. Good luck in in this impossible endeavor...

What dark is trying to say, even though everyone on this forum may buy a case of Diablo Hellfire that is perfect, the one that goes to your house may be crap. They could be stored outside in a cold truck overnight, and mess them up. They may be stored and get to hot, you can never tell.

Like I said it's not a perfect way to tell wither the paint is perfect and I understand how alot of stuff can affect paint, but all I was saying if ya had alot of people getting paint from somewhere were its great it would be good to order there. Maybe your chances would be alittle better, but if Tom, Jack, Frank and Bob all got bad proballs from A1 maybe it could save Jim some problems. I'm sorry if I have wasted everyone time with this forum, I have shot around 120000 balls in my 3 years of playing paintball. Again Thanks for the time, (even though all the time you spent typing was just to tell me I'm wasting your time Dark).

I have ordered about 5 cases of it. The first batch worked great. Then the rest all had dimples or just didn't fly straight at all. If you just want something to shoot definitely don't get it. If you want something to just for cheap to mess around with it will do. But normally atleast two bags had broken paint in them.
