Review: I bought 3 boxes of these at a local paintball store because they were on sale and most draxxus paintballs are good quality. that weekend, i played at my cottage for three days straight with some friends in the middle of the winter. I live in Ottawa Ontario so the thermometer hit -15*C at some points( about 8 degrees farenheight ). All of us own Tippman 98's but im the only one with a flatline. The paintballs seemed hard when i felt them through the bag at my house, but when they got cold they became more brittle. They shot great in the stock tippmann barrels, we did get a few breaks because the barrels shrank and burst the paintballs. the stock barrels for the Tippmanns are also very rough and unpolished which im sure had an effect on the balls also. I got the most breaks in my flatline though, i was constantly cleaning out my barrel. i was also using CO2 which was spiking like crazy, we didnt have a chrony with us but we could tell when we hit each other. The fill was amazing, it was super thick, especially in the cold weather, and is bright blue, very easy to see in the snow and on jackets. Polar ice isnt quite as good as this, i had more breaks with polar ice than i did with arctic inferno.
Conclusion: These paintballs hold up great in cold weather and are very reliable, i wouldnt recommend using them with a flatline or any other barrel that uses harsh contact with the ball to give backspin. these balls deserve 9.5 out of ten because of the flatline problems, so ill give it a 9
9 out of 10

Don't listen to the other players who say they dont like the paint because they cant use it in the summer, these paintballs are made for winter, and it says right on the box, "not for summer use"
