Paintball
Experience:
2 years
Similar
Products Used:
Zaps, blah blah blah, etc...
Recommended
Barrels:
They were not sized well for my JJ Ceramic.
Strengths: Bright
Hard to wipe
Very consistant
Weaknesses: VERY, VERY SMALL!!!!
Shell could be more brittle
Could be a bit cheaper...
Review: To tell the truth, the price was not good. For $20 less you can order Zaps that perform almost as well. However, they were not overpriced. They are definitely worth it if you can find the right barrel match. My biggest annoyance was the incredibly small size of these paintballs. When I put them in my JJ Ceramic, they rolled right out without any resistance. Then I looked down the barrel and could see that there was a HUGE gap between the paint and the barrel. Surprisingly, this didn't affect the performance much. They were deadly accurate, except for a curve, but it was a consistant curve so I was not bothered. This is starkly contrast to Midnights (the next lowest priced paintball by Draxxus/Diablo), which are so ridiculously large that 1/5 breaks in my Ceramic. The paint is almost flawless, but operating at low pressure, I was wishing the shell was more brittle.
Conclusion: They are priced okay, and the paint itself is almost perfect. However, make sure you test some with your barrel, because you may be disappointed by the very small size of these.

if you have a consistant curve in the same direction every time then your barrel has some thing wrong with the porting/or it is bent/or there is some thing obstructing the path of the paintball.

if the paintballs were curving you probably had a lot of moister in the barrel.

Dispute:
3 of us use JJ ceramic barrels and the ball of choice here is diablo F-13 sins I have only had 1 barrel burst to every box of 2000 I hardly find blaming bad performance on the barrel and balls that work so very well everywhere else.
