Review: I was forced to buy these balls at a paintball field. I bought 500, and after the day was over, my friends gave me theirs (they do not play often). I was not impressed with these balls. I had just bought my marker and the ceramic barrel. When I took my first few shots, a ball broke in the barrel... It went downhill from there. I did slightly better with the stock barrel, but the accuracy was less than steller compared to the Draxxus paintballs I started out with. I also noticed how easy it was to wipe off the paint, and how the fill was really weak. When I used the remaining balls for target practice, I found it difficult to hit a 4x5 ft plywood board at 90 ft, let alone the targets on the board. When I tried some Draxxus and Velocity balls, I was actually able to hit the targets on the board at the same range. I'm not super accurate to begin with (being a newbie) but I can tell when my paintball isnt flying straight. They were,however, significantly more accurate than the box of RPS Big Balls that I tested recently (see review).
Conclusion: I wont use this paint again. (unless I am forced to by a paintball field that only allows this crappy paint to be used) I gave this paint a 4 because it is still better than the big balls that I bought.
