Zap Chronic and chronic Pro, best paint I have used and local field sells it for a pretty good price.

If I feel like cheaping out, Zap Spank will cut it but its just ok.

It really depends on what is freshest at the local store. I have had really good luck with Game-Face paint here in my area, but they are locally operated in my state. beyond that when you step up into better grade paint they are all pretty good; again, depending on freshness.

I am on a budget so I usually buy Visible Impact. It seems to break pretty good and is usually fresh at the store. I can get it at around $25/2000 at Walmart. I have tried tactical performance but it bounces really bad and seems to be kind of oily.

I tend to think of things by year since I can't seem to remember all the paint I've shot over the years. Unfortunately, there's not one single paint that I like more than the other - I tend to like "groups" of paint - that is to say, what I consider the same level of paint.

So, based on that reasoning, Chronic is the best I've shot this year. Absolutely ball on ball and fit my barrel perfectly. Followed closely by Formula 13.

In the past, I really liked Premiums, but I haven't shot it in awhile and heard it wasn't the same anymore. Really liked XBall Bronze.

Walmart paint - I have to go with Dusk (when they sold it) and Scorch (now Visible Impact.)

Visible Impact is a Game Face paint; it used to be Scorch & Dusk. Recent batches have been 2 tone shells instead of the traditional red. They also have a woodsball paint Recon Camo that is pretty good. They list at their website X-Ball but I've never used it. Game Face:

I didn't realize that it was Dusk before it was Scorch. No wonder I liked it so much! Dusk was my favorite paint when I first started. ALWAYS round, broke on contact, but it was a little small. Then Scorch came in and I loved it as well. This was before we started our field and started getting good field paint.

Awesome! Learn something every day!

I actually thought the Dusk was a little better quality paintball, but that's just my own opinion. Here's a link of Game Face paints at PB Review:

Dusk got a lower score; it just goes to show the variations on that site. I used to be able to get the Dusk for a great price at Gander Mountain but they've downsized the entire paintball section at my local store.

Where do you guys get your paint, local or online and where? I want to get ahold of some good cheap paint online because i pay around $50-60, with tax, for a case of Midnights at my local field. They always change the price to. Makes me mad.

I always buy from a shop, internet is tricky they dont always check to see if paint is broken, dimpled, ect. before they ship. Best bet is buy at a pro shop. (if you can afford it)

Yes go to a proshop but if you live in an area that has no pro-shop go to outdoor stors

Best paint I've ever used was Marballizers, but it can be a bit pricey. I've also used Premium, which was pretty good as well. Best paint I've used with price in mine is by far X-Ball Bronze. Last time I played I went through 2 cases one night and never had one chop, broke on contact and was very consistent. If I played regularly I would probably use X-Ball Bronze.

Evil and RPS Premiums ftmfw! Both have NEVER let me down, but they're both a little bit pricey.... XBall Bronze is good stuff to practice or play with on a budget, though.

I just picked up a box of x-ball (orange fill/blue stripe shell) and shot off a hopperfull today. My initial impressions were good; flies true, breaks easily, and the fill appears thick. The were a few stray shots, but that could be attributed to the 25*F temps.
