Just thinking since paintballs are filled with liquid, when they're fired the shell will always spin differently than the liquid and make it innacurate so why don't they make paintballs with a sort of soft but sticky jelly like colored foam that sticks to the inner shell which sticks to the inner shell that lets it move with the shell and gives it more accuracy but still marks your target. It would help alot in apex's and flatlines since the backspin messes it up sometimes. Just a thought, it's probably been tested and already failed but just wonderin if anyones heard of it or think it would work

I think that a ball breaking in the barrel would take you out of the game for some time. Right now you can easily squeegie/swab the barrel on the field if you really need to. If the "sticky element" is in the barrel, one must guess that you would need a bit more to clean it out, like a detergent.

Yea your probably right I didn't think about that part, but it would be a pretty hard to wipe in the middle of a game if you got hit with it haha

Wiping is cheating and a show of poor sportsmanship.

They sort of have it. http://www.hydrotecpaintball.com/
 
The fill is a semisolid, a gel when pressed into the paintball and turning liquid when the ball breaks.
They're still working on them.

Check out some winter fills. They are much more viscous than regular paint. See if those are any better then regular paint with spin. That will test your theory out.

They're still in development, hopefully soon!
I've been watching these since I first heard of them, as a pistols only player, I'd happily pay more for seamless consistent paint!
