I got into the game in 04 and remember them being made for a few years after that with the bouncebeams. No matter, they are a stepping stone in the progress of designs and I hope we don't see anything in the future with bouncebeam eyes. There are too many other variables that breakbeams or sound activation can cure.

On the topic of paint color; I don't really care. I've bought the same type (unless it's FPO) for several years now. It's not the best, but it's consistent and that is what I place value in more than if my opponent can see the ball. I don't really care since it's probably impacting on him or around him and thus alerting a different sense that I am there.

I would not mind a case or 2, my home field will eventually have a night game and it would be nice to have invisible paintballs.

I shot these and the Midnight Sun from RPS in the mid 90's. Some of the best paint ever for in the woods

I don't usually get a followup shot playing stock class so I don't really care about tracking my paint. Curious to see how resilient the shell is... I might pick up a bag of 100 from ANS just to give them a go.

Halos use a break beam eye, what about a dark shell doesn't break the beam?
Halo is not a break beam, its a motion sensor beam and we had loads of trouble with dark shelled paints when they came out.

I thought the same way until I played a game a local indoor place. It was kind of dim, everything was already covered with paint, and the shell was dark coloured. We found it pretty hard to actually see where we were shooting. And that made it stupidly hard to adjust aim.

Fun day, good prices and players, but man was it a pain to make some shots.

Ah, yeah, I could see that. We only play outdoors here... Like I said, worth a shot. $3 for 100!

I'm liking the return of the black paint, I would love for people not to be able to dodge shots.

I usually can't see where I'm shooting due to the massive puff of frosty vapors that my 68-special likes to put out, so def going to bother my field about stocking these.
