I started using Blaze paintballs after learing my lesson with cheap department store paint. I was never very loyal to a brand until I started buying paint from the store where I bought my marker from and the owner told me to try Draxxus. I've used both Blaze and Arctic Inferno (cold weather) with great success! Blaze balls are, in my particular gun setup, the best performers I have tried thus far. They fly extremely straight and break consistently. I've never had a problem with them breaking in my gun unless I was firing to fast for my hopper, probably need to go electronic to keep up with my new trigger job. They are priced for their performance, about $55-$65 per case. One of the biggest things I noticed with these paintballs is how well they keep in storage.
I played a lot of paintball in high school and college, but kinda got away from it when I got married. My wife insisted that we get eachother gifts for our 1 year anniversary. I told her that being newly married we were still on a budget so we couldn't spend a lot and that if she was going to get me something, I wanted it to be something I could use and have fun with. Not some dumb card or picnic or something. We ended up picking out our own gifts and saying that they were from eachother. She got jeans, I got paintballs. Pretty freakin sweet!
So I had this case of Blaze pb's, but ended up not using them until 2 years later. I had taken them out of the box 2 weeks prior to the weekend I was going to play. Some minor dimpling, but after 2 years, duh! I rolled the bags every day until I played to let the balls lay on a different side. That weekend came and wow! The Blaze balls looked and performed like brand new, I couldn't believe it, neither could my friends!
If you like paint that will let you dominate your friends, but don't know when you might get to play again to finish off your case, buy these!!! If you can find them, I can't =(
