Looks like Mike got tagged hardcore...good thing he didn't get hit on full auto or something.

Content removed, please read the rules about not posting links with profanity in them. Thanks. Also, please don't post any of mike's videos again. All of them have swearing. I appreciate that you are trying to get the word out, but he swears too much to have a link for them on here. Anyone who wants to see it can search youtube for it

Take down the link, profanity is not accepted here. I'm a huge fan of Mike but you just can't link some of his videos here.

A lot of paint made by Brass Eagle is that way. "Demon" paint is also quite similar. When they are fresh they shoot just as well as any other paintball. The problem comes from where cheap paint is sold. Monster Balls are usually sold in places like Walmart where there's little turnaround. On top of that the paint sits in un-conditioned trucks for long periods of time. The personnel at such places also don't know about rotating the paint every so often and keeping it fresh.

Brass Eagle is aware of this. A lot of people say cheap paint breaks a lot. It's usually the opposite. Companies that sell Walmart paint know it's going to be sitting for awhile. They also know it's likely going to be shot out of equally junky markers - so they make their paint with rather strong shells to prevent breaks. The material they use to make their shells gets softer over time. Instead of getting brittle like most paints do with age they get rubbery and malleable. The result is a rubber bullet.

Monster Balls when they are fresh aren't half bad, but that is rarely the case.

Thats like the Blade. I blew one up. All you had to do was shoot the carteridge area on the marker and BOOM! Was cool though.
