Review: For the money, I don't know how much better of a paintball you can shoot. It shoots perfectly through the .689 bore insert in the Freak, Freak Jr., and All-American rear barrel systems, and the slight seam makes it very accurate once it leaves the barrel. The bright break (pink is my favorite on bring your own paint days) doesn't wipe easy enough for cheaters, but cleans up easily when you're done, and shows up even in low-light conditions.

With most paintballs in this price range, sometimes they dimple if you play with them in the cold and/or humid weather, but I've not had many problems with it. I've actually seen more dimples with Draxxus Blaze in the cold weather than my RPS Premiums. A friend recommended them to me because he swears by them, and I'm glad he did.
Conclusion: Few things are perfect, but the RPS Premium paintball is aggressively priced, and is a top-quality choice for field paint (recommend it to your field and neither they nor you will be dissappointed). There are better paintballs out there for speedball and higher-end markers, but for beginner speedballers, weekenders, rec-ball/scenario-ball players, and everyone in between, you can't go wrong with them. Excellent paintball.
