Filled with Paint
Too big or swollen, because some got stuck in .689 barrel
Maybe it was just my experience, but it was an awful one. I had a pretty good experience with Monster Balls, despite the mediocre rating, so I figured I'd give these a try. These paintballs totally ruined my day. I would literally only get 2-3 shots in a game before the balls would start breaking in the barrel. The balls would come out busted or start curving everywhere, so when I stuck my head out to shoot someone they had free shots at me.
Like I said, the Monster Balls were MUCH better than these and those have a poor rating, so that should tell you something about these. Last week, when I used them (Monster), I didn't have one break in the barrel, and just a slight curve.
As I told my friends a few times today, I will never use these paintballs again. Maybe if you open up the box at the store to make sure they aren't so soft, you will have a better experience.
I am going to spend a little more on some XBall Bronze, since those have a really good rating and reviews on here, and I will probably stick with those if they work out.
Once you get a break, even the most expensive ball will curve, because it's covered in paint, which ruins the flight characteristics. Paint should always be matched to the barrel, else you will get breaks, amongst other problems. A .691 or .692 barrel may have solved your problem.
Not disagreeing with your review - maybe the paint does suck - but you'll get the same problems with Marbalizer (Tournament grade, $60 per case) if you try to ram it down a .679 barrel.
