I am using an Mr1 with a smart parts 14" progressive barrel, co2 powered. I live in Rhode Island and it can get pretty cold here. I usually use formula 13 paint and have excellent luck. I recently tried some spyder red label paint and had some bad luck with it. it was about 44 degrees out when i shot with it and within the first 10 shots I broke a ball. I cleaned out my marker and tried again and the same thing hapened. I also tested the paint in 2 other markers ( tippmann 98, and spyder sonix) and had the same result. I think I may be due to the cold.

If anyone has any suggestions for paint when playing in cold weather please let me know, any other tips and tricks for cold weather welcome.

make sure that the paint to bore match is good. check here (http://www.ottersccustoms.com/paintc.html). as for cold weather paint im not sure what are good other then tournament/expensive paint usually have thinner shells so they break easier.
