Griffis Sunday, November 26th, 2006
Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
6 months
Products Used:
Tomahawak Classic, Field
Marker Setup: Tippmann A5
Strengths: Solid accuracy
Weaknesses: Does not break upon target impact
Review: Colder weather reached the area where I play and I decided to give these balls a shot, aside the fact I could only choose between Tomahawk Field and these little bundles of joy.
Well, they did perform if you consider the fact that most my shots were accknowledged by loud shouts and hand raising, however nobody was marked. I'd rarely see paint on my targets and the only thing that made them shout "Out" was probably the intense pain these caused since I got pretty close to them due to the surroundings (bush).
The temperature was around 13 C, later lowing down to 10 C, but since none of my team members complained about ball chopping and they used Classic or even Field paint, I don't really see the point of these "winter" balls. They are just not that useful and if you play against hardcore players they won't budge to yield unless they see some paint and that won't happen with these balls. Upon 10 clean shots 2 broke on their target. That is an awful statistic. The balls do shoot straight, behave nicely in flight but they fail to fulfill their sole purpose which is to break upon target impact and prove you got the other player.
Unless you play in snow conditions these are plain useless, and I doubt that balls would be an issue were you to play woodsball on less than 4 C.
Conclusion: Do not use this paint unless you have no choice or you decide to play some snow scenarios, but even then I doubt these would deliver. Unfortunately, it's just not good paint.
3 out of 10
