Shell is Brittle breaks in High Pressure Guns
I bought a case and a half of XBall Silver and I have to say, the shell is too brittle for my spyder. I would imagine to work better with low pressure guns and not HIGH PRESSURE guns like my spyder. I get a lot of barrell breaks and chops. If you plan on getting XBall Paintballs, there are 3 different types, Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Bronze has the thicker shell and Gold is meant for tournament play because shell is brittle and breaks on contact yet can endure low pressure guns. For those high pressure guns like spyders, I recommend getting Bronze instead of Silver.
For those spyder owners, I suggest getting Bronze over Silver and try those. I haven't tried Bronze, but they should have a thicker shell. Silvers and Gold are meant for high end guns. I bought mine Xball Silver for $39 which is a great deal, just that my gun didn't like them which fortunately I brought with me some Blaze just in case Xball silver wasn't working with me. I know the price has gone up to around $47.
Its decent paint... used Xball for the first time this past weekend at SC village... its got a decent fill and it breaks on contact... not in the barrel... i didnt have any breaks, so taht was good. I didnt like how they werent very accurate though.... I dont remember off the top of my head if the seams were large but they were curving jsut before hitting the target out of my gun... but then again i was using a .689 barrel... matckstick kit though so maybe i should have used a smaller bore.. if you can get it for 40 bucks its not that bad... i hear solver and gold are awesome paints though
You do realize you were reviewing xball SILVER in the xball BRONZE postings, right? And I rarely see this paint chop or even break in the barrel. And I used Bronze in a Raven Primal which is a Kingman marker and rather high end and it worked fine. No problems.
But make sure you're posting in the right place next time.
