Barrels:
Well I was using a CP 2 piece and a st!ffi on them.
Strengths: Great, bright, almost seemless shells
Weaknesses: Dipplefull which makes them very innacurate
Awful fill
Review: I got a fresh box of these at a tourny, these being their only balls available. I cut open the case to see nice thick packaging and no broken balls. I threw them in the halo and took them to the chrono. The shells varried from box to box being white/maroon and red/gold. The halo had no trouble reading the shells and fed them just fine without breaking any.

However, I was dissapointed to see that many of the shells had small to fairly large dimples in them. Once I got on the field they were pretty accurate but I could definitly tell when I got a dimpled one because it would get out of the barrel and curve way off. And no it wasn't after a break and no it wasn't after I got dirt in the barrel from a dive.

Another con I found was that the fill was incredibly thin and watery, at least in the white/maroon shells, which broke (big supprise) white. The white fill was hard to see and faded extremly quickly. Luckily no one was wipping but if you tried you could take a few hits from those and get them off yourself without leaving much of a mark.
Conclusion: Overall the shells were a bit to hard, they didn't like to break, even on trees. The dimples effected the accuracy greatly and the fill could have been much better.

On the bright side the shells were seemless and the packaging was nice. Also they didn't have black shells.

For 60 bucks a case I wouldn't go for it like it was at the tourny but if I can pick a case up for 40 bucks for practice, it would be hard to turn it down.

If you can find a good deal on the balls, get them... but only for practice.

Also, it is not manufacturers fault or paint quality that causes dimples. it is how old or how the paint was stored that causes the dimples.

sounds like you got an old batch, i have never used them myself so i wouldent know for sure but from what i know they are good paint and it would explain it if they are old because old age caused dimples and bounces on target.
