Review: I like trying new things, so I took a crack at MidEvil for a little more than I pay for my Blaze. One thing I noticed in the shop : The bag. Bag was a plain clear cheapy like you'd expect to see white box paint in, unlike Blaze, which, although cheap, comes in a nice pretty bag with storing instructions, safety, etc printed on. Next big shocker : The bag wasn't even sealed? What?! Evil had employed the use of a black twist-tie instead of sealing the bag! Wasn't even an industrial grade either, so no doubt my paint had been exposed to a veritable hell of climate changes! No chance the shop had opened this before, I had opened a new crate, sealed from the factory.
The paint had a nice shell, was very round, but despite all my efforts, I couldn't get a break all day. No joke. Only elimination I had was using some of my friend's BigFoot paint. I know I had landed at least 6 or 7 hits besides that, so that should be telling you something. I am reminded of Menace with this paint, the shell resembles Menace ( matte shell ) and the bounce rate also resembles Menace. I was pretty dissapointed with this before I even played with it too, because I shot a few at a bunker as a test of sorts, and the fill left a lot to be desired, didn't make the huge splatter of Blaze and wasn't very bright. The paint shot accurately enough, but don't expect it to " improve " accuracy as advertised.

Perhaps I had a bad batch. Feel free to disregard this review if you've had good results, I only used 500 of these, and it'll be my last.
Conclusion: I'd recommend Blaze instead. It's cheaper, it's brighter, and it actually breaks on people. If you've had good results with this, by all means use it, but I'm not going to risk spending the money again. NOTE : If you see this paint from the factory in a twist tie bag, avoid it at all costs!

hmm i guess you used the old ones...just bought some the other day and it was beautiful. I've never heard of a company using a twist tie to seal there paintballs? But maybe yours have been open and the company who sold it to u thought you were dumb enough to believe it and i guess you fell for it...

Nope, they were definately like that from the crate, I watched them open it sealed from the factory.

Haha, are you serious? Every paint I've ever used in the last 3 years uses a twisty tie! I guess you'll have to take a leap of faith that your Proshop isn't secretely stealing a few balls from each bag to up thier profits?
