The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
Paintball
Experience:
3 years
Similar
Products Used:
Other regular field paint sorts - Zap Tork, PMI Premium, X-ball Bronze.

This paintballs can you not compare with really quality, more expensive tournament grade paint
Marker Setup: Old style PGP (many), ZGP-94 (two), Sterling Bronze (three), P68SC, AGD MiniMag, Kingmann New Hammer, Spyder Compact (two), Crosman 3357 Spotmarker
Recommended
Barrels:
Plastic pipe will be about adequiade to quality of this paint...
...but good small bore (.685") barrel will be perhaps the best for them
Strengths: Availability
Adequate firmness for low-end markers
Weaknesses: Accuracy
Review: This is one from many sorts of regular Field paint. There are nearly none differences betweem of them - it is nearly impossible know apart Zap Tork, Draxxus Blaze and PMI Premium when they have the same color sheme, for exception. The main differences are here made by transport and stock-keeping.

Even from the manufacturing, they are not very accurate paintballs. No cosistently round, ovoid with embossed seam, but with decent firm and elastic shell and not just bad size for most aftermarket (medium bore) barrels.

They are really good only for short range encounters, especially for indoors - they have decent accuracy only up to 30 feet. For accurate long range shooting there are simply other, more accurate sorts.

Why are these factory best-sellers? Because most fields have FPO (Field Paint only) rule and for Field owners is cheaper, inaccurate paint more profitable.
Conclusion: Regular cheap Field paint... if you can not use better, or if you do not have need of better paint, Draxxus Blaze are as well good (or bad) as others. If you will something better from the same manufacturer, test Draxxus Hellfire. They are more expensive, but far better when goes on accuracy.

Dispute:
Next time, don't write a review about a product that you haven't done any "research" on. Draxxus Blaze paint has an average diameter of .687-.690, so a barrel any smaller than .687 would not work well, especially .685! No wonder you can't hit anything beyond 30ft! Also, just a tip, when you're writting a review that everyone will see, try to use the Spell Check and maybe re-read your review before you post it to avoid bad wording.

Interesting. I own some markers (18?), and some barrels, so I have performet some test with them. I have best results with this combo: RPS Marbalizers - measured diameter .696 - and .684 brass barrels. Why?

Don't write a dispute that you haven't done any "research" on. Big paint and small bore barrel can work perfectly.

...but when is the paint visibly conical as in case Draxxus Blaze, you can simply not expect some great accuracy. This is cheap field paint. If you are not able understand that, it is your problem.

And by the way, I have tested Draxxus Blaze even with .692" barrels. The .689 and .684 barrels were little better with them.

Sorry ernluvr but 3022 is right. >687 is a joke with these balls .. we use a .682 and its perfect

^ maybe 3022 is right about the size of the paint, but you cant shoot paint thats bigger than the barrel bore size, maybe if its a little bit bigger but not .696 paintballs going through a .684 barrel, they will just be too big

also read a review of the rps marbalizers and this guy said his .688 boomstick is perfect for the paint, so something must be wrong if your marbs are .696 in size

Paintballs are not solid projectils. That means:

- they are elastic, so good brands can hold some deformation.

- actual size of paintballs depends in a measure on humudity, air pressure and age. There are for example many differend findings how big are Marbs... and they are supposedly all corect. Paintball manufactured in summer-time in valley in Europe has differend sitze in wintertime in Canadian mountains.
