Products Used:
DBX practice grade balls. Have only fired about 100 rounds of the DBX thus far. Have fired 6,000 rounds of the Monster Balls("MB"). The DBX seems to have more fill and a thicker, more noticeable fill than the MB.
Marker Setup: WGP Trilogy Pro Autococker - Stock Barrel - Co2 - This is my Primary Marker it's all stock right now.
Recommended
Barrels:
I used many different markers with the Monster balls. They Are:

Tipmann Custom 98: - Flatline Barrel~2000 rounds - four breaks
WGP Trilogy Pro:Stock barrel(.689)~1000 rounds - no breaks -lil paint in ports
SMart Parts Ion: Stock barell ~1000 rounds - no breaks
Spyder Victor II: Stock barrel ~600 rounds - no breaks
VL Maxis Pro: Stock barrel~400 rounds - no breaks
Strengths: Availability.
Inexpensive.
The watery like Fill cleans up easily.
Consistency.
Reusable storage container.
Weaknesses: Fill seems watery.
Fill may not be easily noticed.
Only one color available.
Review: Wow we fired these Monster Balls through a wide variety of markers. In addition to the markers listed in the Barrel section we also used them with the following markers:

Splatmaster Rapide
Talon Pump
Tracer Pump - two separate guns both stock barrel
CCI Phantom pump stock barrel
Tippman SL-68 PUMP stock barrel
Tippman Prolite - stock barrel

And no breaks noticed. We played scenario games and light practice shooting. The Autococker and Ion were set to semi-auto mode. The Cocker did have a little paint in the ports of the barrel(not enough too clog them) but the inside of the barrel itself was mirror clean.
Conclusion: Buy them. The ION and COCKER were only set to semi-auto so everyone was on the same playing field. The stock barrels on the markers listed worked well with the Monsters.

When I held a handful of DBX practice grade balls next too a handful of Monster balls, the Monster balls were noticeably rounder. Keep in mind that the DBX practice grade balls are more expensive than the Monster Balls. Also, each DBX bag had some paint on the bottom inside of the plastic bags. None of the monster balls left any paint on the inside of the bags.

I also have a bunch of JT freedom balls. While not opened they did not leak any paint into the bottom of the plastic storage bags or clear plastic bottle containers.

I don't know how these balls would perform under the stress of Full auto. And I don't know how they would perform with other advanced barrels. But I have more markers coming and some advanced barrel systems as well. So I'll keep you posted.

I'd give them a ten with thicker fill and multiple color availability.

Keep on Ballin!

trilogy only shoost semi. They're mechanical, which means that the trigger assembly is in direct contact with the striker. so one pull of the trigger the blocking pin is released, and the spring allows the bolt the push the air out and therefore shoots out the ball.

The marker is a Autococker Pro SF - Trilogy Series. Inside the grip is a two position dip-switch with which allows semi auto, full auto, B ramp 18bps, and TA ramp 15bps firing modes.

Hope this helps.
