    It was so many years ago that I played that I remember that paint!! Other than paint, I recall a time when clearly a small group of people had turned up the feet per second on their markers, and that hurt a lot, especially as they over shot as well. Fortunately they were told to sort it out after numerous complaints by players. I had the same marker at the time so I knew how hard they should be hitting. As I said I've never seen anyone who had froze their paint. Interesting to hear that it appears to have the opposite effect of making the paint worse.

    For the record as tried this, freezing paint just doesn't work, for starters paint being water based, water being the only substance that expands when frozen and just doesn't fit down a standard barrel let alone an aftermarket one, had it jam behind the eyes was great fun trying to get it all out. might work on something primitive like a bravo one or similar.

    Probably wouldn't fly straight either and it's solidify and create an air gap inside making it off balance, complete crap I say, unless someone provides proper proof.

    Speed ball and woods ball.

    Pump: 500 rounds
    Semi: 1.5 cases

    Big game with lots of foliage: 2.5-3 cases! lots of play time and you have to beat a path through the leaves for the paint balls!

    I usually use between 800-1000 on a full day of Woodsball which is usually 7 or 8 games

    freezing paint makes it super brittle and it falls apart

    unless you use a starch-based ball (almost any RPS), and freeze it for a week... as we found out when we dropped a few balls in the freezer at my local site by accident... then the shell falls off, but the fill stays solid - no idea how youd shoot it though.
