What is 50 cal paintball and paintball lite?

Normal or competitive paintball is played with a .68 caliber paintball. This is the original size paintball that has been used since the mid eighties when paintball was invited. This larger paintball has a heavier weight and with a heavier weight comes a harder impact when it hits something.

What does getting shot with a 50 caliber paintball feel like?

Something you don’t even feel it! If you don’t follow the rules and get shot under 10 feet of another player the paintball will sting similar to getting popped with a wet towel. This feeling isn’t the worst but definitely isn’t the best if you’ve experienced this before.
