Review: Fuegos are probably the highest quality paintballs you can buy for 35 bucks. They are consistently round and have a small seam. They fly very straight and always break on target because they are very brittle. If you get yellow the fill is SUPER bright. Hi Lighter style. The only problem is that the fill is a little liquidy, but the premiums correct that. Sometimes the shell can be too brittle and break just from shooting out of the marker. I have gotten 3 cases of fuegos so far and I had this problem with 1 case. If I started to shoot fast then the balls would start breaking all inside the barrel. The paint is probably 687-688 bore and I use a 689 Matchstik so it was definitley the paint just being too brittle. Since the paint is fairly small I just left the bags open for 10 minutes in the cool air and they toughened up a little. They did swell a tiny bit, but since they are small It didn't cause a problem. After that they worked great and still broke target 95% of the time.
Conclusion: If you don't want to pay 40+ a case for paint, but you still want quality balls then Fuegos are the best option. Sometimes you might get a very brittle batch like I did, but if you leave them out a little it will be a quick fix. Overall great paint
8 out of 10

Cool air will make paint more brittle. put it in the sun, or in a heated car.
