Comparison: .50 Caliber to .68 Caliber Paintball

Does Low Impact Paintball Hurt?

The low impact format takes a majority of the pain out of paintball impact by reducing the weight, size and structure of the paintball. In fact, the the weight is cut by 60% and by .18 inches in size. By reducing the overall mass of the paintball the player feels a lot less of a sting compared to the standard (classic) paintball. How much less of an impact will you feel? The weight of the paintball is not the only factor that determines the amount of sting felt. The speed or velocity of the paintball is another important factor.


Less Ouch – More FUN!

The data is striking (literally)! The low impact paintball format is less than a third of the impact of the traditional paintball commonly used at other paintball fields. Best of all, that 2.68 ft lbs of force is the amount of force the ball has when it leaves the barrel of the paintball gun. We don’t allow players to shoot one another that close. Most shots occur at a distance, which means you’ll feel even less of an impact when you’re hit.
