Review: I bought these at my pro-shop because they were cheap and I had seen a few people with them at my field. I used them and the seemed alright as far as accuracy is concerned. Then i came here and read the reivews. went to my paintball closet looked at the bag, low and behold all the balls on the bottom of half the bags had flat sides. WTF?!?!?! It has been sitting on the shelf for a week and they are flat. This really does not make me happy. I have two cases of paintballs that have flat sides of some of the balls. this is frustrating to say the least. I guess I will have to keep churning the bags around. other than that they are better than some of the other paintballs that I have seen, they are deccently round as long as you get the ones from on top. Now on to the accuracy test. these seemed accurate but only at close range. I was shooting at thing that I should have been hitting. anyway, if you really need paintballs and cant afford anything else then get these otherwise get dusk or something a little better for your money.
Conclusion: I would have given this stuff a better rating but then I discovered they flattened themselves. better than some of the other crap you can buy but still no the best.

I know you're kinda new to paintball so I won't be a jerk when I say this:

All paint becomes flat after a week of sitting on one side, try rotating the box every day or two.

Well, not really, I had a couple of bags of PMI Premiums that were sitting on the shelf, and a few extra pods I forgot to empty, for 6 months and they did not develop a flat side. Also, even with paint that is usually subject to dimpling and the like, one week is not normally enough if its kept in a controlled environment (at least in my experience.) He is correct though, Rotate the paint (as needed for the brand) to keep it from going flat.

Not that new, All of the draxxus and nelson stuff I have used doesn't have the entire bottom of the bag go flat.
