I was just at a paintball shop in town here and the guy tryed to sell me nelson paintballs. He said they were the best paintballs in the world. He also said that pro tourneys use Nelson paintballs. Is this true or not? If not what paintballs do they use in the pro tourneys, Mainly? Just tell me if you have ever heard about them before or not too. Thanks.

Pro's use many different types of paint. Out of all the pro players all that has to happen is for just one to shoot them and then he can say that pros use them.

I don't know, Marbs don't seem to be as good as they used to be. I have used Nelson Challengers (midline) up to Anarchy (tourny). They are as good as anybody elses. I also have had good luck w/ Diablo form 13 and Evil. It's all about what is available and at what price.

I use Draxxus Mid-level paint and it works fine for me...but the best paint i've ever used is a toss-up between Nitro Duck and All-Stars.

yea i haved used nelson before they are good if ur on a budget and wanna shoot around with some friends but if your entering a real tourney i would spring for some better paint
98% of ion owners think ions are better than any high end gun. If you would like to bonus ball these idiots put this in your sig.

I've read that alot of Tourney players use GAP paint.

Whether they want to use it, or if it is sponsored to them, I don't know.
