Review: I've used these paintballs in the past 2 winters and have yet to have a good experience with them. The first time I used these, winter 04-05, it was hard to find a single one that was spherical. I just figured it was a bad batch so I looked at the other 3 bags in the case and they were all deformed and dimpled so I brought the box back figuring it was my luck that I got a bad box. After going through 3 boxes at the shop I was finally able to get a case of acceptable paint. Four bags of bad paint get through Quality Controll is bad but atleast cases if not more shows a total lack of any quality process on these paintballs. Needless to say it still shot bad, lots of breaks and horrible accuracy. Temps were in the 20-30s F that day.

Next winter 05-06 I had to uses these again nothing else was available but I said maybe they cleaned up their act and my bad luck was gone. So I got another case. and to my suprise they were all nice and round with no dimples. Great I though no going to have any problems today. I was so wrong, all day about once ever 15 to 20 shots I was getting a barrel break. I check all my settings dwell, paintmatch, fps, and so on but nothing seemed to help. Worst part about it was since this paint has an extreamly thick fill making shooting clean nearly impossible and I wasn't about to take off the barrel and clean it every 15 shots. Finally I found out what was causing the barrel break problem when I was reloading my tubes. I was sitting on the steps about 2ft about the ground when one of these paintballs fell from my tube to the ground (asphalt) and broke in half. I tried this with a few more balls, 50 or so, dropping them from about 2ft and 3 of them broke. Was about 30-40 F that day.
Conclusion: They have some Quality Issues be it shape, dimples, or shell. Will be extreamly difficult to shoot through a barrel breal due to the thick fill. If you have a marker that can shoot through the worst paint then this may work for you. Otherwise steer clear if this stuff.
