What do I look for with paint? Choosing your paint can depend on a lot of reasons. For recreational play using a Tippmann or Spyder we recommend using Diablo Heat or PMI Stinger. With Heat and Stinger the shell is much harder than higher end paint which in the case of using a Tippmann or Spyder you would want to use a harder shell so it does not break in your chamber. Unlike Forumla 13 or Premium the shell is brittle which is used more on higher end markers that in some cases have bolts that are softer on paint. Also, each paint has a different bore size. Most of the paint that Zephyr carries is around the common bore size of .68 caliber. The size of the paint is of importance when a player begins to recognize stray balls. If you are noticing paint flying left or right; the ball could be to small for your barrel. It's always good to look into what bore size your barrel operates with and find paint around that size. It's not the end of the world if they do not match but the consistency with your shots will be noticed.
Do paintballs have a warranty?
There is no warranty on paintballs. Zephyr Sports will inspect each bag to make sure there are no breaks prior to shipping, plus we will inspect the outside of every box that is shipped for any sign of damage. All of the products we sell are securely packaged, this is to insure safe delivery. We cannot control the way a package is handled once it has left our warehouse. In some instances, small paint breaks can be contained. By taking the bag of paint with the broken ball and lightly rubbing them down with an old towel, you can easily restore the paintballs to pristine condition. Also, note that there will be a little bit of oil in each bag, this is not a break, the oil is used by the manufacturer in order to keep the balls fresh.
What makes one case of paint better than another?
There are many different aspects that come into play when comparing different grades of paint. Everything from the thickness of the fill, to the shell of the ball, to the seam plays a big role in how any particular paintball is going to shoot.
