Review: I was a bit ticked, to say the least, when I bought these.
I went to Danger Zone Paintball in Washington and Rampage was the only field paint they had, and they were charging 60 A CASE FOR IT. I was rather pissed off, considering I knew that they were a low-grade paint, but I bit the bullet and bought them anyway, considering I had no other choice.

On the field, they worked pretty well. I didn't have any breaks in my marker (Intimidator) and I also had none in my backup (Piranha Evo), so I will say that these can be used in a wide range of paintball guns. However, I noticed that the shells were randomly brittle or tough. I slid behind a tree once (woodsball, of course) and it was a bit of a hard hit. I let out a long lane on the "village" below, and had to reload. I pulled out a pod and opened it, and to my surprise, one of the balls had broken. So I poured some, and dumped in the rest. I saw a guy on the other team, and laned right into him, but only one out of four paintballs broke. Therefore, the shells are sometimes brittle enough to break in the pot, and sometimes too hard to break on an opponent.

Also, I noticed that NONE of these paintballs were very round. They are more of an oblong shape than anything else, and it made these paintballs fly in random directions even though the bore was a good match and the barrel was clean. I will say this though; after a week or two, I opened the extra bag I had, and none of the paint had dimpled whatsoever.

Finally, when they did break on an opponent, the fill was VERY thick, not as bright as it could be, but enough for the ref to tell that the guy was out.
Conclusion: If you can get these for recreatoinal purposes cheaper than $40, I'd say go for it. However, I would never pay over $50 for a case of these paintballs. They're very inconsistant, and you could lose a match over a ball that is not brittle enough.
Also, if you plan to buy bulk, these paintballs age very well, so if you can get them wholesale for practice games, I would say that they are a great buy.

I give them a seven for good quality, thick fills, and good aging properties, but high prices, inconsistency, and being a little oval-shaped.
