Spyder VS2 Paint

Hey guys, i just purchased my first paintball gun and was wondering what paint is the best choice and 2nd best choice for the Spyder VS2. Until, next month i change the barrel to a 14inch J&J Ceramic. and if anyone knows good paint for that barrel too would be much appreciated. Thanks!

it all depends on the quality of the paint and the size of the paint and the bore. you have to get paint with a good consistency and a size that matches the barrel bore. i just started really paintballing a lot more too so i'm not sure about barrels at all but i'd go with a premium paint quality always, so there's less or no chop, and make sure the paintballs fit right in the barrel. do a test and hold the barrel vertical and drop them through and horizantal and if your can blow the ball through the barrel without passing out, then they should fit good. if they just fall through the hole than something is too big or too small. so basically match up the sizes and don't buy crap paint because premium is better quality over all and that means better accuracy and a huge difference in chop. hope that helps a bit.

if thats a genaric sporting goods store then the odds are very low that they will have anything decent. they carry stuff that has a long shelf life not stuff that is high quality. if you want good paint your going to have to pay a good price

go to a paintball shop, they will have more of a selection, fresher paint and better paint, ask whoever is working there about the brands they carry, they are gennerally pretty knowlegeable

A lot of general sporting goods stores do sell paint. My brother in law picked up 500 rounds for $12 at Dunhams. I'm sure they weren't high quality, but we were just using them to test out an old E99 he picked up. Surprisingly he didn't have any chopping in semi-auto. Accuracy wasn't too bad either. We were just plinking off empty cans and lighting up his kids swing set , but they seemed decent for what they were. For actual play, I'm sure there's a big difference between cheap stuff and premium.
