Review: Xball bronze is really great stuff! I shoot these balls out of my wrath (because I shoot ALOT and their a little cheaper than the gold which I shoot outta my cocker) using a halo b and a dye boomstick and they shoot great. The balls are very consistent to the .688 caliber. The fill is very thick and very bright, especially with the green fill. The seams are flush with the ball making it nearly perfectly round (i don't think there is truly a perfectly round paintball, although these are pretty close). The shell is a little thicker than the silver and gold xballs which make these balls ideal for punching through dense brush and leaves for those woodsball games. The only downside is that you will experience more bounces with these balls when compared to silver and gold. I've shot about 15 cases through my gun and have only had maybe a handfull of barrel breaks from each case. For the most part, the balls shoot accurately and consistently, with the occasional wild shots. I've used them on hot, humid summer days, and below freezing, snowy winter days and there was virtually no change in performance. The balls are of premium/competition grade and are very inexpensive @ only $39 bucks a case at either actionvillage or xtreme paintball! I have never had a broken ball or any leakers in the bags! Oh yeah, shelf life (as far as I can tell) with these is not an issue as long they are stored in their bags at room temperature, moderate humidity, and in the dark. While these balls are great, Xball silver is a step up, and Xball gold is an bigger step up (duh).

Conclusion: All in all, these are great balls, and for the price they are charging on-line, they are a steal. I'm rating these balls in comparison to Xball silver (9/10) and Xball gold (10/10). These get an 8/10. But if you compare them to any other brand of ball in the 30-40$ (maybe even 50$) category, these either blow 'em out of the water or give 'em a run for their money and I'd give 'em a 10/10 in that aspect.
