-Breaks in pods, hoppers, barrels, and breaches
-Not very round...
We purchased 60 cases of RPS Premium for our NCPA team. We've used it for six weeks and the vast majority of the team refuses to play until we get new stuff. This paint is really bad. I think I can say that after going through 60 cases. And so you know, we bought all 60, in bulk, from firstcall and have used them for the next six weeks, so they are not old.
As far as accuracy they are not too bad. They seem to be really small bore, but are at least all pretty consistent in their actual size. They shoot about as well as Xball bronze and are fine for recball or team practice.
The big problem with these balls is the brittleness, though. I've used this stuff for six weeks now, and probably get 4 to 5 breaks a game. Granted I'm shooting my hopper and 2-3 pods every game, but still that is unacceptable. I also want to note that when shooting stinger or Evil or midnight, or even Draxxus whitebox I never get more then one break a day. Rutinely we have to throw out pods b/c of a break, and our entire team carries at least two squeegees on the field for every game b/c of all the breaks. It almost hasan't been worth praciticing because all that we ahve been able to practice is what to do without a usable marker.
I really cannot reccomend this paint at all. After going through 60 cases with my team in both indoor and outdoor conditions, I have very little good to say about this paint. I would only purchase this as a last resort as I have spent day after day cleaning break after break becuase of this paint.
I would bet you a hell of a lot that this paint was improperly stored at the wharehouse, and that six weeks of sitting didn't do much for it. Buying in bulk can sometimes be a bad idea, especially for cases such as this. Any paint will go bad if improperly stored before it is sold, or if it is left in the wrong environment (excessive cold, heat, humidity, dryness).
How on earth do you break stingers or whitebox once a day with those gentle guns? Stingers are known to bounce on targets and are super sturdy, plus whitebox have probably been sitting around for a while adding to its hardness. It's prob not barrel size because those high end guns have larger bored stock barrels, unless you swapped em out. Maybe you should overbore a little and/or get a new faster hopper. And geeze pods can be cleaned you don't need to trash em. Sorry for the essay, just my opinions tho.
