orderpaintball.com house paint finally decided to buy some
Posted 03 October 2007 - 03:10 PM
so today i got home from school and notice that there is a orderpaintball.com sticker on the table. then to my surprise, a tall box stood in front of me with the words orderpaintball.com on it. i quickly opened it up to see the paint. i didn't know what to expect. i grabbed a bag and noticed that there was paint in it. here's a pic of the bag:
i took that bag and went outside with my paintball gun. i decided to take a few and throw them against some concrete to see if they would break easily. i was surprised when they broke everytime i through them to the ground. also, to my surprise, the fill was bright yellow. apparently what i thought was paint in the bag must be oil or something. the paint was round and the seem was hardly noticable [maybe its the color]. here's a pic of the fill:
i put the co2 on my marker and the tank oring burst. i grabbed another oring, put the co2 on my gun and then loaded my hopper with paintballs. i shot maybe 5 rounds and then ran out of co2. now i have to wait till the big game on monday to actually shoot them at the right fps. they did break though, even at such a low fps [they went about 30 feet until they dropped].
i just checked if it fit the more of my barrel [J&J ceramic, .689 bore i think] and most of them fit. the ones that didn't fit were too small which i guess is better than too big. i tried maybe 5 and only one rolled out of the barrel. i blew the other 4 out the end to make sure they weren't too big. i'm glad they fit my barrel
i can;t give you an opinion on how accurate these are because i haven't shot them at 300 fps yet. sunday, i will get my hpa tank filled [i hope, otherwise i'll have to use co2 on monday].
overall they are very close to xo industries spectrum paint [which i have a bag of now] except maybe a little less quality. but for the price of $25 for a case including shipping it's an awesome deal.
7.5/10 overall performance.
10/10 performance for price.

so i switched to my Quest which is very gentle on paint. the air alone still would cut the paint at the seams every once and a while. i was shooting a sawed off shotgun. i had to sprint to the 50 every game just to try and get a couple of close range eliminations. again, this was great practice to make me a well rounded player, but it was a forced habbit not a learned one.
that same day i was also shooting origin classic and that shot marvelously through both guns with no breaks at all. but when i ran out of that i had to use the dreaded house paint again.
i still have three cases of the house paint left that i'm going to have to shoot through my epic because i'm pretty sure its impossble to break paint with an epic. although the same could be said of most high end electros.
all in all a bad experience for me, but others have had good luck with this paint so my advice to everyone is buy one case of it at first to test it out, and if it works well buy more. don't do what i did and buy a bulk package and then get stuck with having to play with it for a couple weekends.
oh and by the way of the two boxes that i opened, 3 of the 8 bags had breaks in them.
