No matter what forums you use, what social sites you visit, there are always threads loaded with reviews on the latest equipment, setup guides, ‘How To’ advice and much, much more.. What you dont often find is information on paint!
I guess the reason for this is because paint manufacture is an extremely difficult process and the variables involved are so substantial that every batch of paint produced, results in varying differences from the last. Paint is a variable item and cannot be controlled to stringent manufacturing processes, thats why we see the many different bore sizes for barrels.
At every event we have played we often see guys and girls with £1000′s of pounds worth of kit grabbing the cheapest paint they can find on the market, I’m not saying this is a bad thing as costs for events and paint can be quite substantial, people have tight budgets and need to stick to them, what I’m trying to say is that people are overlooking or not considering the performance of a paintball which can actually make the difference from an OK day to a fantastic day!
Paint is the biggest cost when it comes to events and most people buy based on budgets. If your playing a long weekend then choosing a cheaper paint probably means your able to stay on the field more as your not conscious about spraying paint towards the opposition. In the past Bad Moji often went for PURE Paintball from BZ Paintball Supplies as the paint is of good quality and the price is very reasonable.
During the first Southern leg of the competition it was clear that in order to be in for a chance then not only was the right equipment needed, the paint had to be top notch! The game is won by eliminating opponents and switching flags, ball breaks on target are essential not bouncers!
We tried many different types of paint in the run up to the UWL and we basically knew that a more fragile paint was going to work best. We played the first event with GI Sports 5* Imperial, a very good paintball indeed. Some of the more well known teams had opted for this also and it did the job. We also had the opportunity to try DyeCG Paint from BZ and although on the day we went for GI we felt the DyeCG was a little special!
Having some free time to use the DyeCG more it was evident that it was one of the best performing paints we had ever used. The accuracy achieved with the Dye CG is amazing, probably due to the near perfect spherical shape, the consistency and spread of the fill. The size of the paint is also extremely consistent at around 0.687 – .688 so this, compared to some of the other top grade balls on the market, is on the larger side of balls!
Going in to the second leg of the UWL we chose to use the DyeCG and it was the perfect choice. This paint cannot be faulted, its absolutely brilliant.. This was re-affirmed during the later parts of the competition when we had to use some alternate paint as we had run out of the DyeCG, the difference was very noticeable…
So.. we let to the great people at BZ Paintball know exactly what we thought of the Dye CG who in turn, unknown to us, then spoke with the guys from Dye Paintball……….
Its our great pleasure to be shooting DyeCG Paint via BZ Paintball Supplies and receiving the support of the guys at Dye along with the continued support from BZ. From now on Bad Moji will be using DyeCG paint wherever possible, including the UWL and CPPS.
Really looking forward to future games..
