Paintball size question...

What would you guys recommend for a medium/large paintball? I need a high quality paintball that is slightly larger than Marbs.

Thanks...

-Eli

It totally depends on what's available and what your price range is.

Ultra Evils when I can find them are my paint of choice. Coming in a little tight in a .689 barrel, they're pretty big. (size varies with paint however, storing conditions etc.) Not cheap, but when you mark someone, they know it, and cannot deny it.

Sterling paint tends to be larger than .687

Going by brand name and lables are now out the window not one company can supply consistant size from batch to batch made. Your best bet is to visit youlocal pro shop and ask what is running big. ifthey will allow you try to size it your self.

B is correct, it completely depends on where you are. For me, all the paint available from local suppliers is rediculously tiny. I blame El Nino.

Hey chappy, what style of sterling paint is usually big for you? rec, game, or tourny. (I think rec is solid color and game is two toned)
