Review: In case you couldn't tell, they don't actually have a "pound" of paint in each ball, but that was to convey that these balls pack some paint in them. One hit from one of these babies equals two, maybe three hits from other balls.

Before I tested these out Marbelizers were my favorite "tourney/expensive" grade paint. The Magneta fill was SUPER bright and sometimes stained it was so thick and absorbent. Well, then a guy I know from the field I play at told me to check this paint out. He went to the back of the tech area and came out with a case of these babies.

Now I will tell you, I like Diablo and Draxxus brand paint, but it's not my favorite paint and I have always thought it is a little over rated by a lot of guys I play with. So I was hesitate when he told me this paint blows Marbz outta the water and was hands down the best paint. He threw one lightly at the ground ...

And holy ... well, this paint is BRIGHT. And THICK. And I couldn't believe how much paint was on the ground from one ball and how easily the shell broke.

So now your thinking if it breaks that easily, then it has to break in your gun. Well next he loaded some up into his Timmy and let it rip out on the field. The bunkers are yellow and orange Evil bunkers, and let me tell you even on the orange parts of the bunkers, this orange Hellfire stood out. All the other paint on the bunkers seemed to wash away because the Hellfire stood out so much it was the only thing you saw. And NOPE, no chops in his Timmy firing 18+ BPS. He and I played against 5 or 6 youger kids for a couple of rounds, and lets just say I felt bad for the 3 he shot.

Conclusion: So yea, it's expensive and not "shoot-around" paint.

Draxxus/Diablo still isn't my favorite paint manufacuter, but they do happen to manufacture the best best available with HELLFIRE. The Orange is the brightest I have seen, more so than Marbz or other "tournament paint" and while you CANNOT wipe this stuff (it makes it worse when you wipe) it doesn't stain your clothes like with Marbz will. Shell is smooth and fragile enough to break on contact everytime, yet not in your marker (considering you are using a LP marker)

If you have had problems with this paint, you probably had some old paint. Get a fresh case of this and try it out and I am sure you will agree ... Hellfire can't be beat as far a tournament paint is concerned. Definitely reccomend it to anyone looking for expensive high (and I mean HIGH) quality paint.

Nelson just came out with some "Special Forces Paint" that runs about 90$ a case. Until I try that, Hellfire is the best I have tried or seen.
