Hi Omid give us a ring at Pitchcare 01902 824392 and we'll recommend you some suitable paints from our range.

Pitchcare is Fleet's online sales agent and with out doubt they are quality products. For bulk buys on machines and paints ring the office and we can sometimes sort out a deal too!

Is the field muddy? For the transfer wheel at this time of year I would recommend a liquid that can be diluted from a fairly strong concentrate i.e. Pitchmarker C.

hi omid, if you get hold of sales guys at Fleetline see if they got a second hand kombi, if its cheap enough, they are by far the best line marker given the conditions, saves struggling with a wheel to wheel on slippery soil or no grass...

Avoncrop Amenity Products "Diamond White" paint - it's an excellent product, very bright and long lasting. Trouble is, it's expensive......around £38 for 12.5 litres!

Linemark Uk for me, by far the best liquid on the Market ( in my opinion, and i have tried just about every one)

We marked out for a game using Supastadia AF on the 16th December, the game being on the 17th. We had a game on the 28th as well and because the paint had lasted so well and the lines hadnt moved with the rolling before the second game, the pitch didnt need marking for the second game-something which I have never done before, and the more remarkable thing about when presentation is essential is that both these games were Premiership games.

yeah exactly, you are a pro club anon....youve got a decent drainage system , may have u/ground heating, and definately a decent surface that wont become muddy and waterlogged, so even if you have not got a lot of leaf to paint onto , you have a fairly dry surface for the paint to adhere to...this is for my application i swear by a kombi with pitchmarker super c paint, it will spray onto mud, sand, rootzone, and even the astro ive got round one of my dugouts, i cant remember the last time i failed to put a mark out on my non league pitches, and i have not used a dry line marker since i bought the kombi....

i tried every paint on the market and finally went with linemark, premier line, brillant stuff, i mark out 7 pitches every week and i ve only used 40l since the start of october, it worked out to be very cost efficent and i use it in a wheel marker (or mud wheel marker)

Looking at paint lines in the professional game, it seems that we too have problems with paint-ghosting being the worst problem-looking at the Blackburn/Bolton game as I write this,you can see the half way line has ghosted 3 or 4 times either side of the halfway line in the direction of the mower. I personally use Regal paint-economic and lasting.
