Review: What it comes down to is there aren't many paints that cut it in the cold. Living in Canada... We Canadian paintballers know these things. This paint works great in the cold, you'll only ever get the very rare hard paintball (just hope you don't take it on bare skin -- BIG ouch). The fills are bright, and REALLY thick, hard to wipe and the bulk of the paint ends up on your target and not in the air around your target.
The SIGNIFICANT downside (and it's really kinda silly and easily avoidable) is you'll notice right away a case of this paint is rather small compared to most paint cases. That's because the paint is CRAMMED into the box... and you all know that means DIMPLES! While this paint seems to shoot "okay" especially at high velocities where it doesn't matter too much, on a field that plays at 240 fps it matters quite a bit. Checking through one of the bags of 500 you'll be lucky to find a dozen balls that aren't dimpled... most bags you won't find one. So... don't use these for anything other than recball or when it's gonna be cold out! As far as chop resistance/barrel breaks, I've put 2 cases through my Pilot (albeit at 10 degrees C or less, why would you use these when it's warm?) and not shredded ANY in the barrel at all... and I don't ever chop so I wouldn't know about that part :D
Conclusion: It's a decent paint and better than many. A quick look around will snag you a case of it for $60.00 CDN which is nice too. While you won't get any "footballs" you'll get MAJOR ball dimpling because the paint is so crammed into the box. RPS if you ever read this... JUST PUT IT IN A BIGGER BOX!
