View Full Version : Oh Noes! What paint to use!

Well, in light of the many, many, many, many posts lately as to what kind of paint is your favorite/fits insert name here barrel/has the best fill, so on and so forth, I've decided that maybe it's time to start a post like this. Now, all this stuff is going to be on Otter's site (here, as a matter of fact (http://www.ottersccustoms.com/paintc.html)) but it this is more like your opinion....

So, here's how it works. It'll be just like like the best stores thing. Tell me the name of your paint and the manufacturer, + or - as to whether you like it, and any additionl information like what barrel you think it's good for.

For example:

Diablo Nightmare .679 (good for kits with small bore sizes, bad for others.) +

I'll try to keep a master list up top so that instead of people asking, they can just look at the beginning of the thread.

May be work, but let's give it a go!

Hahaha! Laser beams....

Yup - The Nightmare I use right now, I have to use my .679 Freak insert, and even then it rolls right through, so it might even be smaller than that!

GAP about .688-.689, really good paint for practice maybe a little over kill, fits most barrels really well becaus eof the medium size.

I have been ordering X-Ball Bronze and Silver off of Pbgear and I have never been happier.. The Bronze tends to be a little small (.685).. But I just got an order in yesterday with two cases of X-Ball Silver and it is a perfect .689.. Fits my .689 Redz Pepperstickz One-Piece perfect..

Also, It is $39.77 a case for Bronze, $41.77 a case for Silver, and
$42.77 for a case of Gold.. I haven't tryed the Gold yet, but I intend to..

I shot couple pods of the Silver and it was AWESOME! Shot very straight, didn't break any, and I was hitting the same spot of a tree from about 75 Feet away..

I say try the Bronze and Silver, They are both good..
