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.

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.

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

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)
Glory is for the weak.

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.
