Paint Help! Need tourney paint (cheap lol)

Ok, I am getting a team ready for our first tournament. I have been trying to get one together for a long time, but people always back out. So for our first, we need some good, but CHEAP paint.

So I am looking at Xball Bronze. They are 130 for 4 cases. Which seems pretty good. But how are they quality wise?

Now how about DXS Blaze? Empire Inertia? Menace? V1? 32* team colors?

Or if you know anywhere I can get good paint for around that price(130 for 4 cases). I am willing to pay more than that, but if the situation came up that I just bought 4 cases of expensive paint and aren't going to get to play I would be pissed. lol

*note- I will be buying the 4 cases for our whole team. Not for myself. It's 3 man.

Have you considered speaking with your local field? They might be willing to help you and match what you are willing to pay and give you a little better paint in exchange for being under their roster of teams.

The problem is I have no local field. But, I am going to talk to the owner of a store that I go to occasionally. I just don't think he will be able to give us the quality of paint I want for the price. To do so, he would have to take $10 atleast off of each case. Which I don't see likely.

Out of the ones you've listed, I've had the best experience with xball bronze.

bronze is a great paint. Are you sure the tournament doesn't have it's own paint that you must use?

If you believe in God, and are proud of it, put this in your sig.

Thanks guys.

Bobide, yea. Its a CFOA, so they allow you to bring your own or buy theirs. They actually sell DXS Silver, bronze and midnight. But it would be about $15 more for the bronze.
