Barrels:
I own the evil pipe so it fits nice and snug. My last barrel was a boomstick and they roll out since they are small bore.
Strengths: Very bright fill - The yellow ones are amazing
Breaks on target
Cheap
Weaknesses: None.
Review: Size: These paintballs are a very small bore and will roll out of a medium sized barrel. I had a boomstick and this paint shot nicely but I can only imagine how it would be with my new evil pipe.

Quality: There are no seems, similar to midevil paint and in the two cases I have bought there have been no dimples. This paint has an interesting smell that'll make you wonder what it is exactly.

Accuracy: I had a boomstick 14" and this paint shot nicely, even though the paint is small, but I can only imagine how it would be with my evil pipe.

Fill: The first case I bought was pink fill and it was ok. Its not too thin and not too thick. The second case was yellow fill however and I must say I could see every ball that broke from across the field. There is no hiding from this paint. Very Bright and very nice.

Price: 47$ a case at my Paintball store which is cheap compared to other brands and they perform just as well.
Conclusion: This is good paint for recball. I don't play tournaments so I haven't thought about this paint in that scenario but it is good recreational paint. Buy a case and you wont be disappointed, I was impressed for the price.
8/10 for alot of breaks in my older gun, until I switched the bolt tip.... it didnt like my venturi very much.
Rating:
8 out of 10

Did your old gun break other paint, or just formula 13?

Its pretty brittle. I think my gun was running a little too high of pressure for em. This is a great paint though, i highly recommend it.

How can your paintballs roll out of your gun? On my marker (a madly customized 98 Custom) there's a little rubber thing that sticks up in front of the c02 valve where the paintballs drop down that holds them inside. Are you saying your gun doen't have this? Just kind of curious, and confused.

I mean that once the ball was in the breech, my barrel was too large to hold it inplace and it just rolled out.... no big dea;... it has nothing to do with the Paintballs except the fact that they are kinda small.

His gun is an autococker. once the bolt closes, it pushes the ball past the detent. that seals better with the barrel. if the paintball is too small for the barrel, it will roll out.
It is one of the annoyances of autocockers.

The GX3 might have rubber detents, because the gx5 does, but i think it has a ball bearing with a spring behind it like most cockers.

incidentally I own 5 autocockers and love them in spite of th rollout issue.

besides, the Freak Kit solves 95 % of those.
