Review: Ok, so Im extremely new to the sport, and have only made it out to the field 3 times this year. So take the review for what its worth. I bought the cheapest balls I could find on the internet, this came at $30/case of 2000, w/ no shipping charge when you bought 4 cases. I thought the balls were pretty accurate and flew straight. I was able to nail a guy in the face (that sounds bad) from 50+ yards out, taking only 1 shot. For a newbie like me, I thought that was pretty good.
Out of the 4 cases, I didnt find one ball with dimples or that was cracked. 8000 balls that all came perfect, is pretty good.
The one thing I didnt like was the white paint. I find that white paint can be hard to see, so when you get someone who wants to pretend like they arent hit, the ref might not see the paint easily. Seems to me like Orange, Pink, and Blue are the 3 colors that show up best.
The only trouble I had the whole time, was when I was crouched down reloading, and someone came up from behind and shot me. The problem was, they shot right in my hopper! Needless to say, I had broken paint all in the hopper. That caused my balls to go ALL over the place when I was shooting after that. One ball went up 12 feet above where I was shooting. But I dont think you can blame that on the balls.
Maybe I will try expensive balls one day, and will say "man, was I wrong about those atmosphere balls", but until then......these balls rock!
Conclusion: If you are new to the sport and looking for paint, these are a great value. Try em out.
