Review: When I opened the case I was in aw. The only paintballs I have seen more beautiful is the formula 13 I have used in tournaments. Great for the price, they were all round, no dents or dimples, two colored and none broken when I first opened the case.

First I noticed when dropping and blowing them through my barrels (.689 odyssey and sp progressive) that they were a little small and a little inconsistent in size (most just fell through, some needed a small breath or push). In fact I had several roll out the end of my .689 barrel while playing. But they shot really accurate and consistent despite being small for my barrel.

Now I am not sure why, but several of them broke, and I don't mean in my gun. I have had several break in the bags after I bought them. Several broke in my pods, and at least one broke in my hopper(I use a cocker this wasn't from blow back). My friends didn't seem to have these problems so I am going to give them the benefit of doubt that they may have gotten hot in my truck or I just got a bad batch. But they started getting sticky and nasty quick. Some didn't want to come out of my pods. That was when I opened them and was playing but they still seemed to shoot pretty good. Later while I was cleaning my gear I noticed a lot of them started getting dimples and out of shape. That's when I also noticed several had broken in pods, hopper, and the bags. I didn't treat them different then any other paintballs I've used in the past to cause this.
Conclusion: Main thing, they are cheap and they shot pretty accurate. Great for rec play. I would say these and zap spank are the best balls I have tried in this price. I think I would choose spank of the two though.
