Review: This paint wasn't half bad. I was hoping for a little better overall, but they preformed alright.

+Curves well in Apex
These curved through the Apex quite well. Some paint does better than others in this barrel, but this one worked very well.

+Bright Fill
These had a vivid orange fill. Easy to see through the woods and against all different colors of gear.

+/-Thick Shell
This paint has a thick shell. It would make a good winter paint. I was expecting a bit thinner shell from a paint like this however, and as such got some poor performance.

These had visible seams you could fell by just running your fingers over them.

-Some chopping
I didn't have any of these chop in my marker or barrel, but they would break as soon as they'd come out of my barrel. I had this happen about 10-15 times in a day.

These were very hard. I mean, I had paint bounce break hitting the ground after being shot at the chrono, and had bounces on all settings of the Apex(Including dive bomb). In addition my brother caught a couple bounces from me, and one time had one of my shots bounce off the ground, fly up hit him, and then break! Furthermore I did a drop test and these didn't break after multiple drops from over 6 feet while other brands did.

UPDATE: A local team was using these at their practice and had horrible results. One player was bunkered at 2 feet and all 6 balls didn't break. Additionally another player caught a bounce off a mask. I even stepped on some and they didn't break!

Conclusion: I was expecting a little better out of these paintballs. They were too hard for effective use in any weather other than the winter. Use them then and get good performance, but other then that beware.

This is not true, or cant be as we have just had this paint delivered to the uk and its being used tomorrow at the biggest game in europe and had a quick go with them and all splat on contact. So there is NO way that it could bounce and you can stand on them.

I am afriad to say but i think you reviewed the wrong paintballs or you got a VERY bad batch which would be the suppliers fault as they must of stored it in to cold condition and not the manufactuers fault.

I would have to agree the original poster. I had some of the paintballs bounce off the back netting and break on the back of the opponent heads. I don't think that I would have given it a 6 out of 10 though. I would like to see the other comments that this user posts to compare his rating system with him.
