Review: Bright fill and mid grade ball for 38 dollars and change. We recently set up our bunkers in our yard, and made a paint testing side. 1/2 inch foam padding, 3/4" padding, etc, up to 2" on mdf to see where the ball breaks. (yes, we were bored). these broke on the 1/2 inch, the 3/4 inch and then around 50 percent on the 1", did not break on the 2" (very few balls we have tested did, like premium broke around 50% on the 2").

For the money spent, well worth it. They do not like me at Wal-mart because I open the paint to look for breaks (exact opposite of when you go to a paintball store and they open the paint before even asking). They had two boxes in stock, I ended up taking 2 bags from one box and 2 bags from the other. The packaging is not as good as it was with the plastic case that scorch came in.

they fly straight, not as straight as higher end paint, but you will generally hit what you are aiming at within 3 shots. the spread was not awful, around 2 feet at 40 feet. There are many factors involved tho, including wind, so that generally is a decent spread. (some jt premimun edition same day did a little better on the spread).

These are the same price as the scorch, with the same bright red shell, the pink fill, yes, the box says pink as well, was bright and not very runny.
Conclusion: All in all, for under 40 dollars if you are looking for a case of paint then this is the one to get. If you by paint from wal-art, this is the only case to get (the monster balls were all dimpled). If you know that you are going to playing in a few weeks then I would not recommend these, get some x-ball or something (NELSON ANARCHY, my favorite so far) online from action village. Good luck, First review woohoo.

They don't like me very much at walmart either. I too open the cases to check.
