You can't tell what paint is what as all companies tend to have the same color variations. It would be better if you showed us a picture and told us where you got them from.

Sonix - that old saying, "You get what you pay for" is true in paintball. At least as far as paint goes. Stinger, in my experience, is good for field grade rec paint, but not that great. Other people are obviously going to have different experiences, both better and worse, so my suggestion is to just try it and see what you think.

It all depends on the area and shop and what they happen to carry. To quote Viking shadow you do get what you pay for. I have used RPS Marballizer and have never been disapointed by it. I have also shot DXS Rec Sport and been just as happy with it as i was with DXS Silver. It just all depends on how old the paint is if it was rotated ect. I have shot tons of varites of paint each is a lil different from the next. If you buy a $70 box of Marballizer and had bad results you might have gotten a bad batch. Give it another try (it is professional grade paint so you should get great results if it was fresh) and don't be ashamed to ask how old the paint is. 99% of shops will have no problem telling you. Some stores move alot of paint quickly some don't. I used to work at a store/field, and one week we would sell 30-50 cases easly. (some times we would sell our whole inventory of paint in less than a week) Other times it would sit for a week or 2 before you even notice a difference in the pymarid of cases laying around the shop.

my personal experience with monster balls is that they won't chop.....or break at all for that matter lol. we stopped using them when we play woodsball because we had 4 or 5 people using it one day and we were nailing people and it wasn't breaking. then we'd shoot a tree and several of them would bounce off the tree. i've had good experiences with RPS big balls and JT tactical. both from walmart. we keep planning on getting several of us to order a pallet of good stuff, we just haven't done it yet.

XSiv Force, if you feel like a small road trip you can ride down here and use that paint. we're a little south of Troy and we play every other weekend, we're always looking for a couple more players.

Yes we need to do that Low. I remember we banned Monster Balls. Here's my experience recently with some different paint.

Monster balls: bad (hard, don't break)
Stryke: bad (broke to easy [as in the barrel])
Visible Impact: good (nice fill, round[some dimples])
RPS Big Ball: good (ok fill, round[pretty much], a few bounces[not to many])
Stinger: OK (didn't shoot alot. seemed to have more barrel breaks than normal)
DBX: good (I've apparenty had better luck with these than some. Round, little or no dimple, shoot fairly straight.)
Evil: very good (actually only shot about a half a case. I can't say it's worth twice as much as some of the other paint but it's pretty good. shoots straight, little or no seam, round, no dimples that I noticed.

Anyway that's some of the different types I've shot recently. Pretty much it's hard to go wrong with any of middle/upper end paints from Nelson, RPS, and so on. I'd say if wal mart is your only choice then Visibles or Big Balls. If you have a ****'s around then I'd say try some DBX's. If anything you can use that ammo case they come in . Don't forget to open and check the paint before you buy it. Usually you can take it up to the desk and they'll open it for you. Again this is only my experience/opinion so take it as you will.
