Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
3 years
Products Used:
Hellfire, Crucifier, RPS advantage, Worrpaint, X-ball, are all better in my opinion
Marker Setup: 04 FSP viking with crossfire, halo, freak
Any smaller bore barrel
Strengths: Break on contact
Weaknesses: Don't handle lower temps well and have to be stored well
Review: I used these over the weekend after they had been stored at another field in overnight temps (call it 45-50 degrees). When opening the box I observed several of the balls had developed puckers on their sides and soft spots which leaked paint. Out of this case I broke about ten balls in my breech over the course of the day which was very annoying. The one bag that seemed unaffected shot fine and I was able to one ball several guys while snapshooting. I don't know if it was the paint or if it was a storage problem but everyone using the paint was having chop issues. I have used this paint before and never really noticed it being better or worse than anything else so it might have just been a bad batch.
Conclusion: If it's during a warm time of year I would recommend this for the price. We normally get it for 40 bucks a case at the field we play at. If it is a little cooler, I would choose something else.
8 out of 10

yeah low temps can be BAD for paintballs, and i mean BAD. If some of the paint freezes it will create crystals which can poke microscopic holes in the shell (sometimes bigger) and then it appears (upon thawing/opening) that the balls are "oozing" paint out of "soft spots." Just another reason to but fresh paint lol
