Review: My first encounter with Jumbo was a few weeks ago when a local team player gave me a pod-full after I'd loaned him some paint during a game. I'd never seen it at the shop I go to, but my impression was "Hey, if it's good enough for these guys, I guess I'll give it a try."

I went to the one store in town that sells it (Rocken Paintball in San Marcos, CA) and picked up a case for myself. Benefit #1- it was only $35! For comparison, this shop was asking the usual $55 for Evil, and $60 for Marbs.

I took the paint out with me the following weekend. Since I don't have a ball-sizer, I tried blowing a ball through both my J&J Ceramic barrel and through the stock barrel that came with my EVO. The ball got stuck in the J&J and I had to break it with a stick to get it out. But it went through my stock barrel reasonably well, so I decided to go with that barrel for the day.

Throughout the day the paint performed reasonably well. I had no breaks in the marker, it flew reasonably straight, and what impressed me most was how few bounces I got as compared to other paint in the same price range, such as Rampage / Menace.

The one issue I did have was that on two occasions, a ball got stuck in my hopper's feedneck. The Ricochet has this little film-like sensor that sticks out into the ball path, and that's exactly where a ball got lodged. Shaking the marker up and down a few times caused the ball to drop and everything continued to work normally.
Conclusion: Despite the one minor issue I had with size, the ridiculously low price and consistent on-target breakage are reason enough to keep buying this paint. I'm giving Jumbo an 8. It's obviously not Marb, but in terms of value for the dollar for all but the most fanatical rec-baller it will be hard to beat.
