Quick question about paint
 
What do you guys shoot and where to you get it? I'm looking for the best paint for around 40-45 bucks a case.

Looking into graffiti, How brittle is it? My Azodin KP is sorta harsh on paint when compared to a ion or such

Valken Graffitti and Redemption is the best paint I've shot in a LONG time. Local store/field goes through it like crazy so it's always fresh, and their packaging is awesome, I've seen like 2 broken bags all summer working for the field. What's nice too is they don't have a winter ball, they just switch the fill for the winter.

It's pretty reasonable in terms of brittleness, shot it through a bunch of different guns and the only one that doesn't seem to like it was my stroker, but I think that might be operator error not the paint. Even redemption is pretty good, nowhere near as brittle as Evil, which makes it a great high-end rec paint imo. The tourney redemption (Redemption Pro I think?) though is unbelievably brittle though, and dimples really easy, I don't think I'd buy it except for a tourney just it wouldn't keep.

Since you go to Warp'd regularly you should ask Glenn about making an order of Elixir for you.
It's higher end of his WPN brand he sells, the good stuff.
I usually shoot Ultra Evil but it can't be found inside of that budget.

Ok getting a half case of graffiti from ANS gear, They have free shipping and fair prices. I also don't have the time to drive out to my local pro-shop. Thanks for the information. I'll be playing on some woody-ish fields so the slightly harder shell will be great. Gonna pick up the white fill because the field paint breaks orange and I want to be able to spot my victims. Thanks guys!

I was a Wpn follower for a long time. I watched them get phased out here. Didn't like valken when it hit the market but now the quality has dramatically improved. Call me biased but I liked the larger caliber of the weapons grade (687-690) compared to valken's (672-684). Those are batch differences not box single box size ranges.

weapons grade was awesome, toxic was even better.
