Review: Okay my local field uses these as a rental paint (he gets em for free from his insurance company) yes they are the premium version..
Anyway's they are glossy but not greasy at all, they look like blaze... His are yellow and blue, and shoot great, especially the fact some i tested first game was 2004 from the fall... they have no dimples, and are generally round, shell seems are minimal and its cheep if you buy online. I had no breaks using my freak, and non using my lapco, however i did experiance 3 bounces, i shot all day and freaked out 3 times for someone cheating.... Oops, okay also i got shot 8 times and all eight bounced, woodsball and longballin (im talkin long ballin here not pansy 80' im talkin like 190-200+ft) so i guess any paint would bounce alot.
Conclusion: Very good if you play once a month, because your stash will not go bad for a long time, thus you can buy in bulk. impressed by quality, and accuracy, if you dont care about the occasional bounce (tournament players like me hate bouncers) then get it! Speaking for you which would you rather have, 1 or 2 bounces (potential outs...Potential because other balls may bounce in the situation too) or crappy shelf life, and breaks in barrel? I give it an 8.78 very good for playin woods
8 out of 10

If you are shooting from 190-200 ft everything is gonna bounce. You should try getting closer (where normal people play) and see that the shell is close to perfect in hardness. It's just a little soft.

you say you give it an 8.78, but then round it down to an 8. should have been rounded up to a 9.
