ok there is about 4 types of x.o. paint and i'll put my review in here from the lower quality to the best

spectrum- a very nice, affordable paint. i used this after my mom accidentally bought it (i use menace mostly) and of course i was pretty ticked off. i took it to the field and i got a very nice surprise. it worked great! every ball was very round, no dimples, and since it was cold it made it break very well. if it was cold i would deffinently use that stuff again

v1- a very common paintball that my team uses. great practice stuff. i used it last weekend and its very nice. no breaks in my gun, hits the target, no dimples. great stuff. in colder weather it might work better

menace- oh boy, menace, one of my teams tourney paint. its great stuff and is the second highest quality paint from x.o. it breaks whenever we want it to, no dimples, accurate, bright fill, brittle but not too brittle. great for cold or hot weather.

vein- vein is the highest quality x.o carries. its amazing stuff. its bright, no dimples, dead-on accurate, thick (i watched a kid try to wipe it, he didnt get away with it because its that thick) consistant, brittle, a little too brittle that it doesnt work good at all in the winter, but right about now it works flawlessly

thanks for reading

Sounds good, I've never looked at their paint before. Are the prices reasonable?

The field I play at uses spectrum and I agree that it is pretty good paint for its price. The field charges $40 a case so I'm guessing it retails around $30-35. Its very round and has an extremely tough shell. The fill has perfect consistency - you can see it when it hits and is difficult to wipe but washes off easily. The balls have a stiff shell with no oil coating. The ones I use have a solid turquoise shell with white fill.

The only problem I have with them is that they are very small bore. With cold weather and low humidity I have to use the silver detent ring on my phantom (the smallest ring). Im not a strong believer in the paint-bore match theory but I do believe that with a big enough gap it will lower accuracy and efficiency.

Overall its decent paint, excellent for the price. I second an 8/10

i used spectrum last sunday for speedball at my field and it shot somewhat accurately. granted, i was using a tippmann with co2 and an expansion chamber. i was getting about a 1 foot [diameter] shot spread. the fill is excellent. for $40 a case, this paints recieves a 8.5/10 from me.
