During the tail end of 2012 we discovered a brand of paintball we had not heard of before…
Having been using Sterling Paintball for most of the year we were a little reluctant to change brands.. On occasion we used GI Milsim and DXS paint when Sterling was unavailable. Our secondary choice was DXS from BZ Paintball Supplies, and the paint did the job.
It was Staargate when we first used the ‘Pure’ paintball and we we’re more than a little wary to use it to be honest. It was a brand we had never heard of before and no one could offer any feedback on it. None the less, 2 boxes of the ‘Silver’ grade paint was purchased from the BZ Paintball stand.
First impression of the ‘Silver’ grade was good, the boxes come with bubble wrap sheets on the top layer and the very bottom layer of the box, offering more protection than other brands. Each 500 bag is sealed nicely and in its own double wall thick card section. So straight away you can see the manufacturer cares about how his product arrives to his customers.
On close inspection of the bags we expected to find some oil or a hint of moisture where a possible ball had broken or overspill etc. but to our surprise nothing, in fact all the bags were clean and dry.
Sizing the balls up we also expected these to either be overly large or stupidly small, but again we were proved wrong… Coming out at a perfect 0.684 we were very impressed!
Again with the appearance of the ball, we knew they wouldn’t be perfect and yes a few had dimples where they had been packed tight but once the bags had been opened and the balls taken out of the individual compartments the dimples popped out a little, still not perfect and round but still a good roundness. Needless to say we we’re all very pleased with the ‘Silver’ grade Pure paintball, it shot straight, broke most of the time and played very well as a woodsball. Definitely moved up a level to our first choice of ball for 2013.
We also had the chance to sample the Pure ‘Arctic’ ball over January. Again I was very impressed with what was in the box. The same level of packaging detail and a rather good winter ball too. The shell wasn’t concrete, in fact it broke better than some medium grade paint of another brand and the fill was nice a thick. The size of the ball was very well matched across the whole 2000 box and came out at around 0.687. The ball shot great from start to end of our training day, not 1 ball break all day.
Tested through the Geo3, Ego11, Etek3, Etek4 and the Etha – all showing top results.
We will most likely be using Pure Paintball for the 2013 season where ever possible, the brand is great quality and a good price and thats what really matters.
We would like to thank BZ Supplies for the supply of the paint, great service as always.
