I play serious tournament paintball, I compete in division two X-Ball and division 3 7-man (NPPL)
I also run an online store/forum with a friend of mine, but as i just foind out it is ILLEGAL (really just against the rules) to post the links to those, so I wont.
Let's hear about some of your paintball info!
do you play rec ball or tournament ball
do you have a team?
What kind of marker/gear do you have?
Here is a vid of the team I used to run until I got a spot on my new team which will be competing in a higher division, and in a separate league too!

slow.. try 5'10'' @280.... and I guess I'm used to regulated fields where ball speed is kept under 300FPS(200MPH).. now, if you want wild men in paintball check out a team called Damage Inc from Detroit.. they play shirtless....

not to call you out Q, but 80% of the fill in paintballs is a thick fish oil in low grade paintballs and 75% of some other kind of oil in higher grade paint. It is also 10% corn starch, and 10% some other stuff and water. Freezing the paint would only make it more brittle, and unless you had a high end gun that is specially designed to be soft on brittle paint and has eyes, you will most likely chop almost every ball that goes through your marker. Freezing a paintball does nothing, I know because I have played tournaments in 20 degree weather. I can also upload a video showing you how brittle paint is in the cold, and how not frozen it is.
Anything over 300 FPS is just stupid, paintball lenses are made to withstand only 350 FPS and after being work, used, scratched, and shot alot the durability falls south. a paintball to the eye can kill someone, which means a paintball to the eye along with shattered plastic flying everywhere can kill you even easier. A good friend of mine can no longer see in one eye because some one didn't put their barrel condom on, and had their gun on and shot him in the eye.
