Review: This review is for the Draxxus Silver Series X-Ball.

The eternal question that people ask in our great sport is always, "What paint is best for me?"

While this question has a different answer for different people, I have found the answer for me. My search is over and I have found my paint.

I own a Spyder Fenix and it is extremely temperamental with paint. I have tried a dozen brands in the past few months to determine what paint suits me best.

The Draxxus X-Ball series is fantastic.

Home Test
At first glance, the paint is first and foremost, a great looking ball (silver/orange half and half). This paint is also very round and nearly seamless. Next I tested the paint with the drop test. It is not uber brittle like some of the more expensive balls (i.e. RPS All Stars, etc.). It took a tiny bit of a drop to crack the shell. Once the shell was cracked, it released an orange primordial ooze that was extremely disturbing to look at. I found myself thinking that I did not want that stuff on my goggles. It was a bright, thick, and gooey fill.

Field Test
I took this paint to my local field and chrono'ed in. After signing my waiver and jumping in for my first game, I realized that this paint is fantastic. It shot extremely straight. I was on target the entire night. The most impressive thing was that when it hit on target, you knew it, they knew it, and the ref's knew it. There is no wiping with this paint, there is no cheating with this paint, and there is no dispute when using this paint.
Conclusion: Personally, I would recommend this paint to anyone that is considering using a moderately priced ball. It performs at a tournament grade level.
10 out of 10

Still think this paint is good? How many cases have you ran through your Fenix? What's the operating pressure you have on your marker? What size bore on the Freak did this paint use? Thanks for the great review.
