I don't think the barrels of the older Phantoms are that big. I have no issues with Valken Infinity on mine but on my Bushy even with the nail polish trick, I still have issues.

I think I'll give Nelson a try. I'll email them and see what brand of their's they say is consistently larger than the others.

Could possibly be elevation or some kind of atmospheric thing... But I think you're right I always hear how small paint is getting and our stuff is nowhere near as tiny as what people across the country are seeing.

Infinity rolls in many barrels for my team. All phantoms. Old phantom id was .688-9? I heard the newer phantom barrels are like .684. Perhaps it's the shipments we got or that it's being used in a tropical temperature? Last 3 cases of Infinity white I had were sub .684 in Alpha343's ball sizer. Paint does changee in bore size a bit between large runs. I had .689 Anarchy and .685 Anarchy as well. I'm sure that different colors will probably have different bore size and brittleness as well.

I had started out with Monsoon (blue) that bored right at .687 and the same shipment of (green) was deformed and .685 or so.

Anarchy is the biggest bore and best nelson paint hands down. If you can get your hands on the stuff that smells like pineapple, even better!

I agree wit those vouching for valken paint, down to about 50 degrees it bored no smaller than .684, and in reasonable weather was more like .686-7

I have had no luck with Draxxus paint for the last 3 years, last bag was oblong. Marb are oiled and last summer saw a couple of cases 688ish in size, then the next bag was 680ish (maybe switching to winter paint, it was around Oct 2012).

Marbs did shoot very well. Break nicely. Tried Polar Express and it is also oblong and hated it.

I guess I need to try some Valken....

Nelson Nelsplatt & Anarchy have worked great in the old Nelsons with no rollouts.
