similar? Diablo formula 13: almost as good better bore size for most, not quite as good in descending order Nelson Anarchy tourney grade paint about the same as most of the better ones overprioced, FRESH Allstars (very sensitive to age and weather),evil ok, but overpriced & overhyped, stuff like premiums... then a bunch of mid to low range stuff

Outkast w/ ticler & eclipse ram & old JAM bolt in delrin (exact same wieght as Orracle bolt)

Custom body cocker Mech w/ Orracle pneumatics (shoulda been eclipse/ belsales)+1 QEV (too lazy to thread back or buy better ram)

6 2K3 Piranha STS eforce , empire reloader, teardrop 14", Stock barrel, spring kit, normal Co2's...

a coupla more blowbacks

an ancient and cool Sheridan PGP with Holster
well, its been several months since I have been able to buy them so thing might have changed, but i would have to say a freak kit b/c mine were a good fit with the .679 insert for a few cases and then the .682 for one other.... most kits don't go that small.
Strengths: Shot straighter than any other paint. Excellent quality. about $50
Weaknesses: Very small bore for those who lack freak kits. Hard to find
Review: I love these. they are my favorite paint bar none. they shoot very straight are round, all the same size (.679") don't deform if you keep some in your closet for a month or two.
(a couple left over of bags swelled to .682 after about 2 months, they were still perfect in all respects but my groupings were an inch or two larger)
break on target, not in your equipment (think all stars....) thick fill

If I told you the shot goupings I got with these consistantly, you would call me a liar, but I will anyway.... about 1.5 - 2" at around 100 feet. with a well tuned cocker with the proper insert.... much tighter groupings than anyone else on the field, even people with good equipment.

and for about $50 a box vs $65 and up for other paint which is not as good.

I should mention that I am a guy who is both stingy and picky. that means I am usually dissapointed. Not so with this. with this paint the only thing hampering my game is my lack of skill, not curves.
Conclusion: If you have a very small barrel buy it. Otherwise buy formula 13, which lately has been .688-.689 and is easier to find, and is nearly as good.
10 out of 10
