Review: A friend of mine decided to take me out paintballin' for my birthday recently. "No worries," he says, "I'll supply the paintballs and the field fee. The day will be completely on me."

He gets these balls from Walmart. I've always wanted to try them, being that I am always looking for the ever-elusive case of paint that is both cheap and good. So we start layin' 'em down. Sort of.

Me and my friend are playing with a mish-mash of balls because we were trying to get rid of some older balls that we had. Therefore, we were both running multi-colored hoppers of balls. I start shooting, and I notice when the blue balls (Monsters) come out, they are curving as if I have an Apex barrel. I, of course, check to see if indeed someone has bought me an Apex barrel, set it on "curve like crazy in random directions," and installed it without my knowledge. A quick check revealed that this was not the case and I was still shooting my old reliable Smart Parts Linear 14 inch.

I am trying to pin down someone behind a bunker from about 70 feet away and find that I can't because it is so hard to actually hit a large target from that far away with these balls. We looked at them and they had dents and deformities galore. We gave them away and my friend dropped some more cash to buy some Zap Spank.

The rest of the day -- Monster Ball free -- went quite well. We shot straight and true.
Conclusion: Get them if you hate yourself and don't like having a good time playing paintball.
