Paintballs are affected by humidity and moisture

What makes one paintball better than the next? Why are some paintballs more expensive than others? These are questions that we get on a regular basis. The answer is simple; you get what you pay for. Higher priced paintballs are normally tightly regulated in the quality control department. Better quality paint is more consistent in size from ball to ball. The shells are more reliable and can withstand the burst of air needed to propel the ball out of the paintball gun yet thin enough to burst on impact. Their shells are also more spherical allowing a straighter flight path. More expensive paintballs normally have better paint fill as well. Better fill involves paint that is washable, comes in brighter, high marking colors and is harder to wipe off in the field.

Paintballs are affected by humidity and moisture. Extremes in temperature and atmospheric pressure can change the consistency of the fill and cause the paintball shell to swell or shrink. This will likely change performance characteristics. Quality paintballs are manufactured to resist the affects of humidity and moisture, resulting in better, more consistent performance during extreme conditions. Paintballs should always be stored in a dry, cool place. Most manufacturers recommend storing paint within the range of 59 - 86 degrees with little or no humidity. Do not store paint for long periods of time. Paintballs can develop shell 'flat spots' if left to sit too long on the shelf.
