they banned draxxus, dxs, xball paint? That's odd seeing how those are tourny grade and have never had issues of being crazy hard or not breaking.

I mean there reasoning is that it's a staining paint. But my current thoughts are Diablo Heat. What are your thoughts.

That list makes no sense its a combination of super high end tournament grade and Walmart floor sweepings. I don't buy the staining thing either I'm betting the proshop or a nearby store happens to sell one of the two brands of paint that aren't banned.

I mean I have a case of 500 of draxxus which I was kinda hopin to use.

Went to the store (mainly for school stuff) but either way I came across Inertia, advantage, and Munition (by empire) and was wondering your thoughts on these.

I ordered a J&J 12 inch barrel for my tippman as well since my rebel has a 14 inch terminator.

I say fill your pods before you get there and play with the paint you bought, Seems the field doesnt' sell paint so they're not loosing any money.

+1 if you wanna shoot your draxxus

i <3 shooting valken.

other decent options (dunno what you have to choose from)
RPS
Formula 13

that list of staining paint.... is dumb to say the least. white or yellow fill shouldn't stain at all. cryptic (zap) last time i saw people shooting it, has a off white fill that looks a little blue, but the splat is so small. definitely not staining. regular Evil doesn't stain. monster is just... monster... will hurt someone.

i'm very wary about buying paint from store like that. who knows how long it's been sitting there or how it was handled.

That is a pretty common paint for fields and I've definitely used worse and for $50/case who would complain?

$50 a case isn't bad at all, even though it's diablo heat.

I just got back from paying $56 for half a case of dxs paint, dont' complain. it was crazy awesome paint though.
