paint questions new to the sport

So i just bought myself a spyder MR2 with a 18v LED fasta loader. i was wondering what kind of paint should i be using with my gun. it says its to be used with .68cal balls but i've heard that thats standard paint? Im looking for a good deal on paint and balls that will break when i shoot someone but hopefully never break in my hoppper

Thanks

Yea all the paint you are going to find is .68 unless it says otherwise. If you want to start out with some paint that is easy to get and is somewhat ok, go to walmart and get the Impact. Impact breaks, and should not break in your hopper. I haven't had any problems using them with my VS1.

It all depends on your budget. Good paint costs more than crappy paint.

On a sidde note, WalMart has cheapish paint for much more than they're worth. Going to your local field or Paintball Pro-Shop will yield much better quality, choices, and paint freshness. Ask them what paint they stock and what you might want to get. If they're honest, they won't push you to anything horribly expensive (good paint is going to be expensive, but great paint is going to be killer on the wallet).

Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.

Cheap paint from the likes of walmart and dicks sporting goods will cost you more headaches than its worth... Spend the extra few bucks at your local PB store and you will enjoy the game much, much more..

Chronic is amazing, and it depends on what you get from Draxxus, they make paint for all budgets, and paint quality matches the price
