Gator Black Paintballs are back!

Gator Black Paintballs are back! Im excited to get some, although they are currently an ANSgear exclusive.


Quoted from elsewhere:

"The Popular RPS/PMI Gator Black Paintballs are back from the dead after 15 long years. Gator Black Paint has a solid black shell with a thick neon green fill. The black shell makes the Gator Black paintballs nearly impossible for your target to see. Gator Black is great for recreational, tournament, scenario or woodsball players with even better results in low light conditions.

Take the one up on your competition and order a case of RPS Gator Black paintballs today. As always, free shipping to the 48 contiguous states on all orders over $100 including paintballs. Please contact us via live chat or email customer@ansgear.com if you are interested in a bulk or team purchase.

Available now in 100 round test bags, 1/4 case, 1/2 case and full 2000 round cases.

.681-.682 Caliber"

I've always liked bright shells (Highway safety orange when I can find it) so I can better see where they go. It would be cool to put a few bright ones in there for a tracer like affect.

This,

I prefer bright colour shells so I can see where I am shooting. Last year we had Bright pink Redemption and it was awesome! This year I have shot a bag of dark green Redemption and dark grey Bronze and while they both shot fine I found it more difficult to see where I was placing my shots...

Bright shells for me please.

Dark paint is specially useful for lane shooting. If someone holds a steady lane, you can literally see it and jump over/under it while you are running. At big events they'll usually color the paint dark purple and make the cheaper paint bright colored to persuade teams to buy the more expensive paint.

I'm interested to try this out!

I think this is a great idea! If ya think .681 its too small dear lord you'd hate playing around here where paint its commonly .673ish. One of these days I'll have to hook up with an outlaw game so I can actually choose my own ammo.

And nearly impossible for YOU to see, too!

We used to do that with those forest digicam-shelled balls that RPS/PMI used to make circa 06/07...

99% of my customers(woods ballers) HATE dark shelled paints. I deliberately order the brightest shells I can get.
Halo's cant "see" black so they jam.
I don't see this as a good thing. maybe for speedballers.
