Which paintballs do you recommend me more?

From the following web store, which paintballs do you recommend me more? I'm looking for the cheapest paintballs that won't hurt my wallet:

.68 - 2000 paintballs - Capsulas

The page is in Spanish but you can tell by the boxes.

I normally buy this ones:

Capsulas Caja Blanca (Segundas) - .68 - 2000 paintballs - Capsulas

They are cheap and work well but sometimes the come deformed, sometimes right and well, they are not the best quality, those are paintballs that didn't pass quality control or something like that. I was planning to buy this ones instead:

Diablo - Formula 13

But you tell from the list, what do you consider the vest option for me?

Formula 13 or Heat. White box is just what it says, seconds. That means they're lower quality, and usually in my experience except for using them for a team practice, they're to be avoided for actually playing (not that I've used those particular white box ones obviously, but white box is white box).

That said, great prices. I'd love to be able to get heat for less than $38 a case!!

Recsport isn't bad, but for $20 more than Heat, is no better so Heats a better deal.

Stinger in my experience has been very hit and miss. GREAT one time, iffy the next. Still, if you get a good batch, it's good paint for that price.

If you're willing to pay the price, Bronze is some good S**T.

I had a really good experience with GI paint. it was round, was breaking on target and flew straight.

bronze is what i use in my 3 man tourneys and it's great!

My last few experiences with diablo heat were bad.(though this was 5 years or so ago, mind you) they seemed to have lowered the quality all the way from the packaging to the product.

Every time I've used GI it refuses to come out the barrel intact. What star were you using, I've tried 1-3 and had no luck with any of it.

I honestly don't remember, but a few weeks later, it was still shooting just fine.

Perfect example of how 2 different batches of paint from the same manufacturer can have TOTALLY different qualities depending on where you're located and how it's handled during transportation...

I will have to agree with Miller. Heat would be my first choice, then formula 13. The stingers i have used have been about a third of them have had issues. At the price the shop sold them for (45) they just weren't worth it. Since they are more expensive than the heat, I

So wouldn't consider them unless the heat/13 is sold out.

I'll try with Heat and Forumla 13, lets see if there are no issues, I'll report back afterwards.

In conclusion, ask the people working there if what they would use. they'll generally know how something is shooting at the current time and location

I don't like asking the shop which paintballs are better, they generaly try to sell you the most expensive they have. I'll rather ask the pro's at the field (but that is going to be kind of a tough call also, most of them just buy the most expensive stuff without thinking about it, the Dye NT is worshiped among them).

If they worship the NT, don't even ask them. They obviously haven't a clue. Speaking as someone who actually thinks the NT would be a good design if it was sold at the ~$500 price point, the NT is a terrible marker for the price. It is my second favorite EVER EP unbalanced spool (favorite being the Demon), but they were MASSIVELY overpriced.

I've had absolute horrendous experience with anything GI less than 2. 2Star depends on the batch. i've had money, i've had ****. now the hellfire (tourney grade), so good. shot money.

Not the first time I've heard that. Never used it before. Actually considering playing some tournament ball during the winter, might be trying out for...some team...here in a month. Not sure yet. But I find that since I know so few people outside of work (and realistically none outside of work that aren't paintballers) here, I might as well consider playing some tourneys just to get to know more people.

I don't know where matrix lives but since miller lives in Arizona I'll expect the climate to be a bit similar to mine so maybe Formula 13 and Heat will work for me.

PS Quick question, How much diference there is from Draxxus Bronze to Silver?

Oh, my experiences with all these paints was when I was still in MD.

As for the Bronze to Silver question, for a recballer, not enough to justify the cost. Silver has a much thicker fill and is harder to wipe. I've never really seen much difference in the shell, although supposedly Silver is supposed to be thinner to break easier.

It's right there under my avatar:O

So what's your experience with paintballs in Arizona? And what about Gold?

I've only used mostly spectrum here, and then Agro one time. The Spectrum is basic low end paint, nothing great nothing horrible, the Agro was weird. HORRIBLE when I bought it, and then wasn't able to play for 2.5 months so 3/4 case sat in my house for that time, and when I used it again, it shot FANTASTIC.

I've never used Gold, WAY too expensive for me.

Chicago -

Low of 36F this morning, temps showing 70/52F today.

My field offers Silver, GI 2Star and RecSport....and possibly Hydrotech soon.



Silver shoots great down to about 40F, so long as it isn't humid. If it is humid, store it indoors or in a cooler in a sealed container to avoid moisture. The biggest problems I've had with Silver come from it swelling and a thinner shell.

Can't say I've ever shot bronze, though if I do a BYOP field any time in the near future - I'll certainly be picking up about 5 different cases..just to shoot everything.


GI 2star was complete crap. Mid-summer (85-95 degree day) it was bouncing around like superballs in a rubber room. It shot well, and it sucked being on the receiving end...until you realized nothing was breaking on you or against your pads. Hand shots hurt.


Rec Sport - Fired indoor, outdoor during an early October event (65 high), and after short exposure to outdoor summer temps (85/95). Through a spoolie the stuff was marvelous. With the stock Cure+ bolt in my Etek3 and my buddy's Etek4...we were shredding it. Didn't much like my Impulse either.


And secret option number 4 - Valken Graffiti - The stuff shot well through everything. The shells were a bit hard to break...effective range was about 80 feet, not the usual 100-110ish. Fill was kinda watery, but I couldn't complain.

And secret option number 5- DXS Frostbyte - If you ever contemplate putting on an extra layer while going out during the winter months...and your field is using Frostbyte... go ahead and put it on. In colder temps, the paint breaks very well. Fill is very very thick..almost like corn starch + Water. Shoots through anything. Flies pretty well. Breaks..when it feels like it.
