need some paint and barrel recommendations

Hey guys,

First of all, I consider myself a recballer- over the last few years, i've only been able to play a few times a year. I have an a-5 with an e-grip and I run co2 because I don't feel I play nearly enough to justify the cost. Anyway, I have heard great things about the dye ultralite barrel and I'm willing to drop the coin on it if is indeed all it is cracked up to be. I purchased an empire barrel kit shortly after i got the gun and i have been pretty disappointed with it. The metal is pretty thin and it just feels too delicate and fragile to me. The accuracy with it isn't even that great either, not nearly what i expected anyway. So if the ultralite isn't worth the money, recommend something that would be. I'm not really in the market for another kit, so thats out. Now for the paint. I live in Florida so it won't be super cold but it might drop down in the 40s that morning and reach the 70s by the afternoon. I need a good accurate paint for this kind of weather. Also, please recommend a place to buy the paint from because I don't live near a paintball shop and I refuse to shoot walmart paint.

I ordered a case of marballizer about this time last year for another game and when it got to my house, balls were broken in every bag. I got em cleaned pretty good but I think they must have been exposed to some pretty bad temperatures on the way to my house from wherever they shipped from because they did nothing but blend in my gun the next day. Bummer because I had always heard so many good things about the marbs. I bought them from actionvillage if it matters. So the name of an online store would be great also. I think thats about it. I do apologize that this is so long but I don't really have time to keep up with the paintball industry any more like i used to so when I get to play, I have to ask what the latest and greatest is. Thanks for your time.

Accuracy is mostly dependant on the paint you're shooting. Id say that 90% of your accuracy is the quality of paint.

The Empire kit is actually supposed to be pretty good, and remember, you are shooting a round projectile that isn't even perfectly round, so accuracy isn't going to be that great anyways (compared to pellet guns, etc).

The Ultralite is a good barrel if you get more than one back for it. If you do want to pick one up, I suggest you buying different sized backs for it if they have any.

As for paint, see what your field has to offer, they should be getting higher quality stuff, and it should be much freasher than whatever walmart has to offer. If you want to go out on a limb, than if your local sporting goods store carries a brand called STINGER, than it won't be too bad. Just open up the boxes and mix and match bags till you get a good case. Stinger from the sporting goods store is pretty decent mid-grade paint. I shoot it when I'm low on cash, and it's been working fine with me so far.

boobies are good, but i don't like pepperoni nipples.
Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.
