User Evaluation

The challenger premium paintball works very well. They fly very straight and have a nice thick fill. You can get them where I buy them with either purple or light blue fill, but I think there are other colors available. They all shot very straight with the exception of about 1/25. That is not bad at all in my opinion. They seemed to shoot a bit further then the cheaper paint that I have been using, probably because of their thicker fill and greater mass.

The fill is very thick and a good color. It is easy to tell when you have gotten a hit, and they would not be easy to wipe. They also break on the target consistently. I see now flae in them except for the fact that every now and then one will not have an incredibly true path.

I bought them for $46.00 per case, and they are definitely worth the money. I would recommend them to anybody who uses the stock 98 Custom barrel, as the ones that I bought fit the barrel very well. I really saw no noticeable flaws, and are all around a very excellent performing paintball.

I rate them 8/10. They worked very well, but I was not blown off my feet. B)

2000 per case at $46.00. Hmmm, that is a bit odd. Maybe I will go check that out, thanks for the info. I am always looking for a better deal, so I will look into this. I get them at a local paintball shop, and of course it will be a bit higher there. Again, thanks for the info, I appreciate it.

$46 is high? What kind of paint do you usually use? I usually pay between $50-$60 for quality paint. In my opinion, paying less than $40 is a bad idea. In paintballs, higher price means better quality.
Oklahoma D-Day '05 (352nd ID), '06 (352nd PJ), '07 (352nd PJ), '08 (352nd PJ), '09 (352nd PJ). It was a good run.

Well, the point here is that I am paying $46.00 for something that I could possibly be getting for less, but I see your point.

While expensive paint is good, it is not the best solution. Price is a factor for any good paint. It does no good if you can not afford it. The Challenger Premiums are quite round, fit the bore size of my marker, and have a good fill. Not to mention they break well and have worked well for me thus far. I don't worry about price too much, as I have tested the paint and see no flaws with it.

It works good and that is all I really care for. That and the barrel bore to paint bore size match. Thanks for your opinion though. I would be thrilled to get this paint for cheaper though. That would be awesome.

Good review Femur, I am glad to see some are using the template I made to give people all the right information.

I have seen this paint for sale at Wal-Mart and Gander Mountain, thought about giving them a try, but I strongly prefer my Marbalizers or Premiums. From the sounds of the review they sound like a good paint for a regular barrel (IE NOT my Flatline). I may just try them through the Flatline for the heck of it even to see once...


Good Job again Femur

$46 per case is normal for challenger.
even straight off the factory shelf.
challenger is not ment to be a budget paint (any paint >30 and usually not the best quality) but more of a mid grade performance paint. so 46 is a decent price for decent paint.

(of course if you can get it somewhere else at a better price then all the better)

Thanks for the info 1-I, now I know that I am not getting jipped. I don't think that I will even bother will Wal-Mart at that rate. Even if it is cheaper, I do not endorse cheap products...

Not that Wal-Mart isn't a good place for cheap things, it is just that, cheap. I consider quality to be a major issue, and Wal-Mart seems to lack that. I expect nothing but broken paint from them anyways...

I am just ranting now. But still, Wal-Mart is not the nicest retailer. If anybody gets a chance read up on what the critics say. Thanks again for the info 1-I.
