    How often should I rotate?

    I have a couple cases of Heat paintballs I bought from Hustle a few weeks ago, and after looking through google, I'm not finding a blessed thing on how often I should roll the boxes (rotate from side to side) to avoid dimpling. They're being stored in a cool place, I'm guessing maybe once a week...?

    Once a week should be alright, personally, I have a large ammo can that I store my paint in, got towel in, a couple bags of paint, another towel, and some more bags of paint, I almost never rotate them except for when I go to games which is about once per month month and they are fine (DXS bronze, field, and rainbow).

    I typically open my boxes and just turn/flip the actual bags inside once every couple weeks.

    I'd say rotate often. Keep in mind that paintballs are made from a recipe similar to gelatin so rotation is also a factor as far as old and new paint stocks. If you got paint laying around for 18 months, make sure they are still good to use for at least target practice or any type of video demo work. I'd want to avoid using year old paint in a game.

    Right. I've been rotating once a week since I posted. I still have 2 cases left (one not being mine), so...almost time for another paint run to Hustle!
