wow damn people are getting ripped off $100+ for a case of paint
there better be 4,000 rounds of paint in that box otherwise that is just a waste of money

for $140 you are better off buy 3 cases of marbs at $60 apiece and saving $10


I am bless witha gun that can use the crappy walmart paint for $30 a case and not shoot fetti maybe get 1-2 chops per bag

but then again i did have an old pod of evil I found that was hidden for about5-6 months and that chopped onces every 40-50shots

It's only a game, you don't need to be afaid of anyone, except for ONE person. Its not the teenager with a marker worth more than your car. Its not the SPPL player with about 35 BPS firing rate. Its the 40 year old guy lying in a corner, taking a nap before the game begins. His camo will probably be old, and he will most likely be toting a pump. He's been playing since before you were born, and if he mentions how much he didn't like when he had to play with oil based paintballs, make SURE he is on your team. This guy is a ghost.-Match99

I'm paying $57 for basic & $74 for marbs (case of 2000). It's not bad, the price has basically stayed the same on the basic for the past two years, but the paint quality has dropped considerably. Hopefully they've stocked winter paint by now, it's always been good stuff at a decent price, I think it was $17 for a bag of 500.

draxxus, EVIL, marbalizer, PMI=$60
Premium=50
Flash, diablo, monster=$30

I do all my paint shopping either at Hidden Valley Paintball [draxxus], or Scheels (la Crosse/Eau Clair WI) [everything else].

Draxxus-about 70 (used to get Gold for $42)
Fluid- Hydro:32 Monsoon:40 Abyss:50
I get RPS (Evil, Premium, Marbs, Polar Ice, etc.), Karnage (Bite, Tear, Rip), and Diablo (Heat and Formula13) paints at prices so low that I'm not supposed to discuss it.

Until earlier this year I used to get VERY nice deals on all Draxxus paint but the wholesaler stopped getting it. Very disappointing. I'm suprised at how much you Canadians pay for a case of paint, especially considering that the best paint company is based and manufactures it's paint in Canada.

That's just the field prices, paint in stores is more decently priced... for example, $70 for a case of Evil or XO Silver/Gold (Canadianpaintball), $60 for a case of Formula 13 (CP) or RPS Premium (Badlands), $45 (Badlands) - 50 (field proshop I mention in a moment) for a case of Stinger... and luckily I found a really nice indoor field that's BYOP on Friday, Sunday, and one other day sometime during the week. Entry is $30 and includes air, then $50 + tax for a case of Stinger (or sometimes Diablo Heat...), comes to $85.60 in total for entry and a case. They also have Marbs for $60/case. And every 11th case is free because they give you one of those stamp cards, so once you get 10 stamps (they give you 1 per case you buy), you can turn in the card for one free case.

Yeah I never have figured out how that worked. You have the Procaps factory in Montreal where it cost nothing to transport the paint to two of the biggest fields in Canada (Mirabel and Bigfoot) and they charge more for paint than any fields in North America. They're both great fields. Tons of structures and first class facilities but geeeeeezzzzzzzzzz. In America I don't care how great your field is, if you mark your paint up 1000% somebody is going to open up next door and put you out of business. Yet Mirabel and Bigfoot has thousands of players every week.

Because people keep showing up and keep paying the high prices.
