Default 1000 Year Old Paintballs

Ive been doing paintball for about 1.5 years and i have always bought paintballs either the week of or the day of the match, But i just recently had my birthday on the 11th and i got 4000 rounds but im not planning on playing, that i know of, until march. Does anyone know how to keep them fresh and round?

60-75*, moderate humidity and rotate the bags every couple of days. That's ideal

some one told me to "FREEZE" them but take them out about a week before the game?

U can't freeze paintballs. They have oils in them that prevent that and if u try it would most likely cause ur gun to chop paint or have barrel breaks. I have used 6 month old paint and it has been fine just turn the bags so the balls won't get dimples and keep it within the right temps.

Freezing doesn't do anything for extending the shelf life and will more than likely increase the likelihood of having dimples in the balls, keep them in a constant temp range stated above (I usually store excess paint in my garage since it stays in that range) and flip the bags ever 4 or 5 days and they'll be good or quite a while. Drastically cooling the balls in theory makes the shells more brittle.

absolutely...and just for future reference, don't ever store your paint in your pods, ends up making your pods smell like a dead skunks ass!

What's wrong with that, though? It keeps my brother from jacking my pods.

Yeah, leave 'em in your closet or somewhere where the light wont get to them.
