Probably lots more, but these are the ones I tested them on.
Strengths: Very thick fill.
Thin shell.
Good bright colour.
No bumps/dents in shell.
Consistent size.
Weaknesses: Not perfectly round. (Than again, no paint is...)
Review: Ok, so first I did a shell test. I dropped them on a folded towel to simulate human flesh and clothing. The broke from about 1,5 meters. This should mean they wont bounce at all under normal conditions.

After I ahd a broken one on the towel, I did a fill test by trying to wipe it. The first thing I noticed is that the fill is very thick. It has about the thickness of ketchup. Ketchup isn't wiped out off cothing very easy (Unfortunatly). Neither is this paint! The stain is still visible after some wiping, and unless you apply lots of water, it won't go away!

I did some further inspecting of the shells. They are not perfectly round, though it's not visible with the naked eye. I only saw it when I put them in my barrels, and even then it was hardly visible.

Unlike some others, this paint did not have any visible dents or bumps in the shell that often tend to occur when they come out of the box.

Ofcource I also did a shooting test. It's dead on with my Phantom. It also had great performances in my A5. Though not as acurate, I blame inconsintancy of the gun for that.

I've used this in a couple of games and it's proved itself every time.
Conclusion: All in all this is very good paint for a reasonable price (€40 per box which is considered cheap here.)
