Hotbox in my opinion is equal to any other companys white box paint on the market. My reasons for saying this are as follows:
When using the split shell I found that the size was very inconsistent around the seam of the ball to a size that would not even fit into a .695 freak insert. In addition I expierienced jamming of my halo-b so severe I could not unjam it with the rip drive .
On several occassions I even had to remove my halo-b and manuely push the ball into the chamber of my shocker to even clear the gun.
The only good thing to say about this paint wa sthat the solid color balls seem to have a little more consistent size, but was still egg shaped along the seam, which resulted in barrel breaks and massive chops.
My recomendation is that if you want to shoot a cheap paint, buy white box , and you will have a better paint.
XO INDUSTRIES REALLY NEEDS TO WORK ON THERE PRODUCT .
