Ok, well I am going to lightly review the paints I have used. I say lightly because I could go so much farther into depth, anyway here you go:

Brass Eagle Monster Balls:
Ugh. These were awful. I just plain and simply don't like them. They aren't consistently round, and they are probably the worst paint to clean off of anything I have seen so far. I never use them, I did once, but not again.

Wild Streak
First off, these were as bad as monster balls. They can be found at Dicks sporting goods, Walmart... they are bright orange along with the box. They are also not so great of a paint. For the same reason as monster balls, (except the cleaning comment)... I bought them and a few were broken, and they were not exactly round (ok, not really round at all)... They all had "dent's." Overall I didn't like them, and will not use them again.

DBX
These are found at dicks sporting goods too. Thats the only place I have seen them so far, they were also an AWFUL paint. I will never again use them. The only thing I found to be good was the somewhat nice box they came in. Other than that there was no upside to these paintballs for me.

Gameface Visible Impact/Scorch
Awesome paint for the price. And really a great rec. paint, I use them a good amount and they are excellent. They have red shell with a bright pink fill. Generally a great paint.

RPS Big Ball & RPS Super Swirl
Also nice paints, I use them whenever Visible impact is sold out (for weekend play really). The reason I put them together is I think their performance is relatively the same.

RPS Premium & RPS Marballizer
Awesome. That just about describes them. My primary paint. I love marbs. Premium is nice too. But marbs are excellent. Thats usually what I am using. If you ask about paint, most will tell you marbs rock. The price is steep, but I love them.

This is just from my experience, I have used other paints but they are not mentioned yet. I will edit. I don't have time to finish now.

Comments welcome, but if you are here to flame/criticize (not constructive) than don't bother.

I never thought that Scorch would be any good. So you're saying that Scorch is alright paint? I have an extremely low budget so I might start buying it instead of Rec-Sport (which rocks, btw :eck:).

I have shot most of those and you are right. BUT my j&j ceramic shoots all paint pretty well. Even big balls shot ok...

Yea, its actually the best low cost paint I have found. You really seem to get a deal for your money. You should try it some time. I believe they changed the name to visable impact though. But it is still the same paint.
