Review: Considering these are only about $23 per 1000, these have got to be the best paintballs I've ever used for my A-5. For starters, they use the "RPS Advantage" which is "New Technology" that guarantees every paintball is perfectly round. Only when they are frozen will they loose their shape; even in very warm and humid climates they hold their shape. I know this, due to the fact I live in Oregon; Home to the below zero winters and above 100 summers.

Next is the field test. About a year ago, I really did a harsh test on these. To start, we played 5 or 6 games with various balls, (Mostly lower end balls, such as Dusk, Blue Streak, and Afterburner) and found that the Super Swirls did not chop one ball per 2000 rounds. The Dusk chopped 4, Blue Streaks chopped about 100, and the Afterburners chopped about 7. (In a later test, Evils proved worse than the Swirls; they chopped about 3 per thousand.) The nice thing about all this is the shell hardness. If you've ever shot a evil, you know it's like a marble; the thing wont break on even hard surfaces under 200 fps. These too are semi- hard, but they break on everything. A good test to show the shell hardness is throwing it as hard as you can at pavement. (Kinda cheesy, I know) If it breaks too easily, as it may in your barrel, it's not very good paint. If it doesn't break, such as Evil I could never get to break, it may be too hard and bounce. The Super Swirls are in the middle where they crack and leak.

There are some "Downsides" to this paint; I wouldn't call them problems, just inconveniences. Such as the winters. When it's 11 degrees out, they don't work. The shell caves in as if it were frozen and they chop more, and most of all, they don't shoot. They just shot-gun out of the barrel as if they were chopped, hence why I don't really play paintball in the winter. Don't take this negatively; I still haven't found a paintball that works in that kind of cold.

Another thing I found out is that they still don't work good when they warm up after summer. I cracked open a couple thousand this summer and found some of the balls had become misshaped. They fired OK, they just lost some of the accuracy and chopped some really bad ones.

Last off, I'd just like to say that these balls (As about 90% of paintballs) are American Made. Just a little food for thought.
Conclusion: All in all, these are still the best paintballs I've ever used. Forget Evils, Midevils, Dusks, Marbarlizers, just pick up some of these. They're half the cost and they prove just as good. Plus, another bonus, if you live near a Wal Mart, they are sold there! Get them even cheaper!
