Good paint

I have recently come to the realization that since switching almost exclusively to pump, that I rarely shoot more than 200 rounds on a day out. Because of this I am now comfortable with buying high end paint as I am not going to just burn through it like I used to.

So I am looking for suggestions on both a retailer and a brand of high quality paint that I can get and concievably stick with. Below are my criteria:

-at least .684
-able to be used in both low to mid pressure markers like ccm's and high pressure 12g fed markers (I have a Sheridan p68)
-I need to be able to purchase it online and said retailer must be good about if it arrives damaged (broken balls etc)
-that still does well after sitting for awhile (I would rotate bags daily or every other day)

Thanks!

I'd go with Evil, or DXS Gold

the yellow/yellow evil is awesome, easy to follow downrange and it's got a great fill. Keep it under 85 degrees and it breaks really nice at 180+ feet

Marbalizers have always been good to me. Amazing quality and ball consistently. The only problems ive ran into where they are expensive and a bit on the hard side.

PS: The environment you play in and your marker should be considered as well when choosing.

-I've found that Valken Redemption is pretty decent.
-Haven't shot it in a little while, but Nelson Special Forces and Anarchy were decent as well.
-As Mike said, Evil is good. Not a huge fan of it in the woods though. Being able to see it shoot way down range works both ways.
-Obviously you have the old faithful Marbs...
-DXS Gold and Silver are both awesome. Bronze is good as well.
-RPS All Star has been pretty good as well, but a little small.

Oh yeah climates, I should have mentioned that I'm in co now ( really dry) but will be moving back to wi (really humid)

So do marbs really measure in at .684? I thought I've heard people say that they ran on the small side?

Small, really? I found they where usually bigger. Last time I shot them was through my phantom. FPS jump up by 30 all because it fit the bore better. Then again I haven't purchased any in a while.

If you are moving to a humid area, I would go with the valken. The bags are sealed with one of those humidity packets. just my two cents
