Products Used:
almost everything you can fire from a paintball marker (including nerf darts)
Marker Setup: planet eclipse ego
Ive found my 689 to work famously
Strengths: Great shell, nice thick fill
Weaknesses: You cant use this stuff in low end guns...see review as to why
Review: I have been shooting empire ramp for a couple months now and i have to say that i'm impressed. The shell is nearly as consistent as the more expensive inertia, and the fill is thicker (at least every case ive shot) the shells are very thin, but not brittle at all. that means this stuff flies straight and ALWAYS breaks.
In fact, i was the head ref at my fields last tourney and i cant say that i saw a single bounce all day. If your looking for a decent tourney level paint for a good price...xball silver and empire ramp are the only ones you should be looking at

Ok, on a more negative note...low end guns really dont like the thin shell They simply run at too high pressure to handle it. Every tippmann shooter ive seen at the field using it is constantly cursing at his "bad paint" in fact the only high end gun i saw that wasnt liking it was a dm6, and well, it wasnt the paints fault as the dm6's have some eye logic "issues" that need to be worked out
Conclusion: Overall, if your marker runs at or under 300psi, you'll love it

if your shooting a blowback....your better off buying the nightmare or blaze type paints with thicker shells

good price for what you get...its right up there with the xball paint
9 out of 10
