All paintball guns are regulated at around 290 fps, the model is irrelevant.
No, paintball co2 is much higher pressure.
Paintball hurts MUCH more than airsoft. The reason that Paintball hurts more than Airsoft is because the speed of the paintball is faster and the mass is also larger. Take an Airsoft BB and a paintball and look at the difference in size. Now, when you figure that Paintball markers have much greater speed than an Airsoft gun, you will find that Paintball will and should hurt more.
Surpisingly, a paintball "impact" to exposed skin is MORE painful than an actual 22 caliber to a .380 caliber bullet. I know first hand (7.62 however with a homeade Haji reload.Hajis use spent bullet casings and add "black powder" and homemade projectiles) . However with that being said, of course a bullet will do much more damage. The difference is a bullet easily pierces the skin and therefore less pain is involved "from the intial impact ONLY" . A paintball hits a wider area and since it does NOT break the skin(in most cases) there is greater skin trauma upon a paintballs impact. Paintballs are .68 caliber projectiles. The world wide speed limit for paintball "markers" is 300 ft. per second. I imagine you can calculate the exact force with the above numbers. Bullets can reach speeds upwards of 1600 ft. per second. If you are hit in the eye with a paintball travelling at 300 fps, you WILL most likely die and assuredly be blinded. A paintball at 300 fps are supposed to "break" and therefore lessen any skin trauma but it does hurt! However some idiots freeze their paintballs and many have been hurt blinded and yes even killed from frozen paintballs. Although a world wide speed limit of 300 fps is strictly enforced with chronographs at ALL sanctioned fields, a paintball marker much like a a sports car compared to the 65 mph speed limit can go MUCH faster and can be fired at upwards of 400+ fps. If ANY individual is caught with a tuned up marker will be banned for life at any sanctioned event

Proto is a division of Dye, much like Chevrolet is a division of GM.
depends on the field but typically, not much
fusion is much better ions need to be fully upgraded
Any paintball gun that you can adjust the FPS (feet per second) on can be powerful, because basically, that adjusts how much thrust the air has on the paintball pushing it out of the barrel.
