v1-better in that it doesn't have very many problems with it unlike hotbox but bounces alot like hotbox
menace-so much better, never has problems and always breaks, and is very accurate
x-ball bronze-much better has .689 size and hardly has very many problems with them besides some dimples time to time
whitebox- well depending on what whitebox or seconds you get hotbox is much better but so is any other paint almost.
chronic-much better, breaks good and accurate

This paint isn't to bad when fresh and its a good price but it has some flaws with it. First thing being bounces, i get bounces like mad when shot with this or v, v1 a lil less for bounces but there pretty bad, i'd seriously get a paint that breaks better such as menace or x-ball bronze. I'm a big guy and not a very good front player at all but my friends were sitting out for a game so i went as a walk on to one of the games and all the positions were taken so i went to run to the doritio at the 40. Well let me tell you, this was a mistake, i got hit around 10 times, no biggy right but i called myself cuz i figured that there was no way one didn't break, wrong again, not a single one broke on me and the guy that shot me was a mear 30 yards away from me.
Other then bounces its not to bad when fresh as theres not to many balls the have dimples or are out of shaped but some are. Also sometimes you'll get some random balls in the bags that are totally different colours then the rest of it. All in all its not a bad paint when fresh but when you leave it in the heat, thats another story. And yes i really most paint is like that but this more then others, alot more.
When my friend left his in the sun along with other people, that is when the problems started. The balls started to swell, get soft, break in hoppers, guns, and pods, and they started to dimple alot and stick together. All the people that bought them started to have problems even though they had jsut bought the paint 2 hours b4 that. Everybody ended up switching to v1 or menace and the problems stopped after that but it was a lesson learned and thats probably one of the reasons why, why so many people hate hotbox.
Some people may not like my review of this product but i speak from experience. I love xo's paint, its great paint for great prices just some of the lower end of its stuff isn't that great. Im not the only one to notice this, many others have to considering around where i live everybody uses xo because the factory is close. I really notice this stuff about paint myself because if its good paint it won't chop or barrel breaks but the second i get cruddy* paint, chop, chop. Good product for the price is fresh just remember to keep it cool. i give it an 8 when kept cool and fresh.
