Review: This is my first experience with Xball, I had ordered the Bronze for some woodsball play, but were out of stock and sent me the Silver instead. That was the first pleasant surprise, cause these balls ain't nothing but the bomb. They are made by Procaps in Canada (where else) and packed into a 4 compartment box to minimize shipping damage. They are packed in HEAVY plastic bags. They are a two color shell, one side being the grade (Bronze Silver Gold) and the other side being the fill color, in my case a bright green. The shell is tough, but will break from 6ft drop to a concrete floor. The seam is about as perfect as a seam can get. They consistently measure .686 to .688 inches in diameter, just about perfect for that .689 barrel. I shoot a high pressure 98 Custom and an A-5A2. They shoot equally as well out of the Thunderpig barrel as they do the Lapco Big Shot, and that is very accurate. Hitting a old aluminum sign about a foot square at 100ft with every shot? Try that with any old paintball, and you will be disappointed. These Xballs are incredible, I will buy nothing else from now on. I was able to find them on a popular website for $42 case. They don't break in the barrel, and the ball is FULL of bright, thick fill. Good splatter qualities too. In my opinion, these are the best value out there.
Conclusion: Go out and buy these bad boys. If you play woodsball, the Bronze may be more suitable because it has a thicker shell. For all-around use, the Silver rocks. You may find more expensive paintballs out there, but I doubt you will find better ones.
