This if for the guys that have an adjustable bore sized barrel (Freak, Edge, ETC). What kind of paints are you guys running through them? I just recently got an Edge elite kit and I'd like to be able to shoot cheaper paint through it than marbalizers and stuff like that. Just Curious, Thanks

got an edge elite as well and it loves RPS premium and DXS bronze. I've had literally ball on ball on ball on ball at 50ft all day long.

Draxxus Field, Core Field, white box, etc. I use a lot of paint typically so whatever is cheapest and I still get good to decent accuracy.

I have used Draxxus, seconds, Nel-splat, Visible Impact, Stinger, Weapons Grade, and a few others with good results.

As far as chain store paint I have found Visible Impact to be the best. The main issue you run into with that is whether your field is FPO or not. The other issue is does a case of the chain store paint plus BYOP fee equal the same as a case of the low end paint at the field?

Yeah, I think I'm gonna run with weapons grade for the time being. It shoots good out of my Ceramic, so it should shoot good out of my edge. Have any of you noticed a difference in accuracy between using expensive (RPS Premium and up) and inexpensive (I would say Weapons Grade and lower) paints when you properly fit them to your bore?

I run Formula 13 through my Freak, but I only have the .693 insert.
Man I've got to get some inserts but my local shop doesn't carry them. :laugh:
