Review: Figured I'd grab a small tube of balls while I was out getting some PVC to make a 10rnd tube. I just wanted to do some test firing and these filled the bill.

The filling is quite thick, and a very dark pink to red color. They broke easily on concrete when dropped from about waist height but on anything else they some times bounced. About one in every 5 would bounce off of wood. Before testing them I had to roll them on a cloth to get some of the oil off since they were well coated. There were 3 broken balls in the tube of 200 and that might have be the reason for the excess oil on them. When I rolled them on the cloth there was a light pink film left behind. As well as the broken ones there were 4 badly deformed ones that would never have chambered without breaking or getting stuck.

On firing them they worked well enough. However they start to curve some after 50' and could be due to the dimpling. I'm going to take a guess that the dimples were from sitting on the shelf of the store for far too long, since other reviewers have said they didn't notice this problem. Branches and twigs in the bushes sometimes caused them to break. Sometimes not. Hitting soft plastic they broke very well and I wouldn't hesistate to use them against someone who is well padded.

They are a bit snug in my Tracer but they fell out of a larger bore barrel I had from a maruader (not that many care about a brass eagle barrel). I don't have another size barrel around to test them in.
Conclusion: Not bad for the price. Might be good for some rec ball if you wanted to spray and pray. I'm not sure how well they'd do in full or even semi auto markers. My tracer hardly breaks anything anyways.
