I played back to back days with the Polar Ice paint from PMI and it was an excellent match to my J&J Ceramic. It was pretty cold here the last few days, 20-30 degrees, and the paint preformed admirably. I didn't have a single ball break after firing around 1200 rounds and my cousin only had one ball break on his stock 98c. It seems to me that I had several more bounce shots than normal, quite a bit more actually, but I guess that's to be expected with extreme weather paint. It's a little costly, so I doubt I'll splurge for it again, but if you play a lot of winter ball (and have a J&J Ceramic) I don't think you can buy a better paint.

I would like to add that even in "normal" weather conditions the PMI Polar Ice paint performs supurbly... Polar Ice Paint is merely a thicker fill and thicker shell than normally used. During normal conditions If I had the choice I would definatly pick Polar Ice of Marballizers using a J&J Ceramic or Lapco Bigshot barrel on my A5. The marballizers just didn't do it for me at all.. I had numerous breaks and "spinners" whereas the Polar Ice in the same "normal" playing conditions performed without fail!

I say if you have Polar Ice... it aint just for cold weather... Use it if you got it... and use it with confidence! :P

Does your feild have that paint? or did you buy it somewhere else? I have never seen it, but I keep hearing about it. I am a little skeptical about buying paint online, I did once and I got about 3/4 of it broken.

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..

How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.

We just got some Polar Ice in at the field that I play at. A lot of the guys shooting higher pressure guns, like angels and shockers were having a lot of ball breaks when they shot the regular field paint, so the owner got some of this stuff (cause of the thicker shell for winter). The guys that were having multiple breaks during one game, only had 1 or two breaks out of a whole case of paint!!! I personally don't have a problem shooting the fields regular field paint cause I shoot a Autococker... acutally all of us with cockers don't have a problem with regular field paint (PMI Big Ball).

One thing about the Polar Ice though, when you get hit, you feel it... I had a raised welt on my left arm from where I got hit a couple times. Hits don't usually bother me, but the Polar Ice's thicker shell causes a little bit more pain and does cause a few more bounces.
They should make flavored paintballs.... vanilla, bubble gum, steak.... just a thought!

Polar Ice is all i use in the winter, it's the most realiable, and dependable winter ball that I know of out there.

Missed this review so I made my own. Guess I'll leave a link here for the original thread ( unless a Mod wants to merge the two. )

A lot of people seem to complain about these bouncing. I must admit I've never had that problem. I shoot empty ( hence springy ) water bottles at 60' and get breaks all the time.
