Review: I've used xball bronze 3 times, 2 out of the 3 were just fine but the batch i recieved this weekend was horrible. The 2 good batched ive used before were consistantly round with few dimples(but still....the were dimples), and broke damn near every time on target. The fill is bright and thick enough not to be wiped. The case i just used this weekend was the worst batch of paint ive ever used. The balls were the green/bronze ones with 75% of the shell being green and 25% bronze. Its almost as if the balls were produced as they were running low on the bronze layer so the green had to stretch to make up the difference. The green part of the shell was increadibly soft and thin while the bronze was quite hard. Most of the balls were also "egg" shaped, and each bag had a few breaks in it. I sorted through the balls to try and salvage what i could, but threw away about 1200 of the 2000rnd case. I would have hoped procaps had some sort of protocall for this not to happen, but i guess a few defects can get past the best of them.
Conclusion: Buy the paint if you want some cheap balls with decent quality, or spend the extra $2 and get xball silver which i find to be far superior. Cross your fingers you dont get a bad batch.
