    I'm shooting from a Gtek.

    I'm tossing up between the valken Fate or Empire Marballizer.

    Question is, does it really matter what quality paint I'm shooting? There is a £5 difference.

    The Paintballs should be always well stored, so they don´t get looking like golfballs or like egg´s cause of getting to warm for example. So we learn, also the most expensivie Paint could be bad too ! Paint should fit to your Barrel bore size and should be as round as posibble and should also have a consistent Diameter.

    The best marker+barrel can´t shoot straight with a bad paintball ! Also cheap markers would shoot pretty well with a good paintball and Barrel setup !!!

    So i would say if the paint which is 5Pounds cheaper is fresher than the expensive one, i think would take the cheaper one cause of the less time the fresh paint had to get bad !!! ;)

    Best would be if you could have a look at the paint before going to buy them !!!

    I've been shooting fate with my gtek. With a good bore match I have had no issues and found that it has been better with more expensive paint. Not saying that's always the case but good round paint is best. Getting the correct bore match makes a big difference too.

    It depends on whether it 'matters'

    The lowest grade will be more likely to be cheap, inconsistent in size with harder shells. It could have a nasty fill mix which may stain or leave residue. It will probably go through bushes.

    The highest grade should be the 'best' of everything with consistent sizing, fragile shells etc. You may also find a resealable bag in the box for leftover paint at the end of the day. The fill should be thick and bright, but clean away afterwards.

    Rental site will be the lowest grade, but part of its poor reputation is also attributable to the fact that it could be sat around in storage as they may not be sure how much paint they need in a weekend - customers may not all turn up and could stick to minimum shooting or twice as many people turn up than booked and through their wallets across the counter.

    If the paint you shoot fires through your gun well, is consistent, shoots in a generally straight line, survives passing any undergrowth in the way and breaks on targets then it's good enough paint

    IMHO yes. I havent shot marbalizer since the early 90's but it was amazing paint back then. I shot fate last season through my gtek and its a superb paint for the price. Is very small so you will need a .675 or .679 insert/barrel to get the best efficiency with it.

    Hello Fella, The G-Tek is about the Best Bang per Buck you can get, they are a Fantastic Marker, I think you`ll find you can shoot anything you want with those and Still get a good result.
