Review: I had to buy these at a paintball field. They were using Nel Splat for 1000 cases, and Draxxus Midnight for the 2000 boxes. The Nel Splat (1000) paintballs costed $50 per box, so I took them over the $80 for the 2000 Draxxus Midnights.

Pros
The fill is very thick, you can't wipe it without having a obvious stain. The fill and afterstain both are pretty pretty bright.

Cons
I don't think these were worth $50
Hardly any broke on impact, I heard some other players saying they got hit 7 times, and none broke. I only got hit once and it didn't even break. I had a pod left over after the day, so I looked at a lot of them, and all of the ones (yes, all) I looked at has a huge dimple or dent. Not sure what's up with that. When at the game, I dropped some from maybe 4 feet, and they just bounced. Also, I had barrel breaks and curves with this paint with my stock Ion barrel.
Conclusion: I wouldn't get these again, I don't really like them because of the breaking on impact problem. I would get the Draxxus Midnight next time I go.
