I was using a .685 bore, for those who match paint to bore.
Size is fairly uniform throughout.
Doesn't always break.
Played some recball this weekend & got a case of Bronze for free ("payment" for reffing). Unsure if it was a fresh batch or not; assumed it was.
First Glance: Procaps packs their paint very well. Box divided into 4 sections, bags are thick & sealed (instead of twist-tied). Paint shells were virtually dimple-free & no broken balls in any of the bags i opened (only used 3 bags that day).
Break Test: lift arm above head & dropped a couple on some rocks. Good paint should crack or break but Bronze didn't. Just bounced.
Bore Test: i've only got 2 Un1tech bores right now, .685 & .693. Fit ok through the .685. Some rolled a little, some needed to be blown out.
Over the Chrono: Bronze flew pretty straight. I was hitting a large wooden spool & noticed the fill was pretty thin. But it is rec grade so no surprise there, although rec grade Karnage (Bite) has a thicker fill.
On the Field: wasn't getting as many breaks as i wanted. Got someone on their mask, which was a break, but got someone else a couple times in the thigh & waist and i didn't notice those break (although he got out, anyway).
EDIT: ok, got another case recently and it wasn't as bad. Still didn't break as often but broke more often than last time. Plus the fill was oddly thicker than last time. Weird.
For practice, fine-tuning or rentals, it's fine. Wouldn't want to use it otherwise. Can't really judge it on the price since i didn't pay for it.
7 out of 10
