Products Used:
Nightmares, Formula 13's, blitz, big ball rps paintballs
Marker Setup: 32 Degrees Icon-Z
16 in. Night Stick Barrel, 20 oz co2 + 12 oz., super fly spyder bolt, empire reloader electric hopper
Strengths: cheap, rec quality good
Weaknesses: curve a little, shell might be hard to determine I'll explain
Review: These are the good stuff. At a price of under 40$, my dealer sells em for 37$ these are the BEST you can get for that price. They don't break in the chamber, and are great for practice but good enough for rec. and maybe a little higher, but considering these tournament paintballs is not wise as choosing a higher brand. Something I noticed is the fill is always the same color as the shell. Well this can make it hard to determine splatter or hit sometimes for ref cuz I had to paint check a kid and search the paint for shells. He was clean but I'm just saying that Nightmares or blaze might have been easier. The other thing is that some of these have dimples, and the shell is not premium grade, thus cheap. They won't be dead on like hellfire or inferno, or as good as blaze or nightmares, but they don't curve atleast. I would suggest these for anyone looking for "good" practice paint and anyone who wants decent rec. paint. I'm using yellow heats right now and I like them very much.
Conclusion: Good For Rec. and Practice -1on dimples which cause slightly off shooting, it's barely anything but in paintball an inch could change the game, so not as accurate as others. and also -1 on the set option of same shell color and fill color. but any paint that gets an 8/10 for under 40 bucks is a good buy.
8 out of 10

Long barrels aren't necessarily better

I agree. I just used Heat last Sunday and they were purple shell with orange fill. Plus, they had no dimples in them, and were incredibly accurate in the Timmy. Maybe they're so cheap at your dealer because it's old paint and that's why they have dimples?

I use Diablo Heat with a green shell and white fill, and pink shell and yellow fill and it works great.

when u buy paint it tells u the shell and the fill on the box most of the time and i have never seen same shell same fill heat
heat is the only thing i use and i think they are the best paintballs for their price

when he means that i know what he is talking about. I got a free case with an order and it said random colors. When i got them they said pink shell with white fill. Some of them popped and turned out with a pinkinsh fill in them(kinda annoying but could have worse problems)

At headrush in Syracuse, they sell heat with yellow fill and yellow shell.

I have used green with white fill alot also. For some reason the yellow/yellow just aren't as good. They hook.(I know color shouldn't make any difference but maybe they come from different factories or something) I have never had any problems with the green/white fill.

2 of my friends with icon z/x's (one has a progressive barrel and the other has PMI Razzor) always get bad accuracy with all kinds of paint for some reason. Also the dimples are signs of really old paint. Red/orange heat always works great with me.

I shot a case of heat with a green shell and pink fill. They broke with very little coverage. I will never use heat again.
