Review: So my brother and I each purchased a case of x-balls at a trusted shop. I have an autococker and he has a 2003 shocker, both running pretty low pressures. When we first filled our hoppers with these balls they were fine, but these were just test shots at the field to get our guns chronoed. Come gametime the paint started spraying out of my gun like crazy, my brother even had the same problem. When I came back to the car and took my gun apart to see when the breaking started, I found balls smashed into another ball in my hopper. So i checked the settings on my hopper and saw that it was on the lowest setting (1 light flash when you turn it on for those that have a reloader-b). My brother didn't have the same problem because he has a pulse loader and I don't think it has that spring tension the reloader has, but he did have super amounts of breaking too. It took us out of the game so we didnt play all day. Pretty much wasted a day out there.
Conclusion: This paint is just really really brittle. I mean I dropped it from my chin and im 5'7" and the seam will break. This is my review.

When you dropped it from your chin at 5'7" it is suppossed to break.... Anyways if you were chopping mad paint, which with xball you only do if you get a bad bag because there are tons of people including myself who have never had a problem with it, and your hopper was on the lowest setting why don't you turn the setting up? Turn it to 2, this way it keeps up and you will know its not your hopper. Also do you have eyes? If so were they on? I know it may sound stupid but some people often forget to turn them on. Finally check your detents, I have a promaster and I was chopping every single paintball (not xball at the time) and then my friend suggested to Take Out a detent and now I only get 1 or 2 here and there.

Well I don't know about my brother having his eyes on or anything, but I'm shooting an autococker. My detent is fine, i only have one, and plus I found balls being crushed in the hopper. Now if I upped the setting to 2, I was afraid that I'd be crushing more balls. Don't get me wrong I've read the reviews on here and all I read are good things, but honestly I think it was just a bad batch of paint. After I get my raceframe installed and eyes on I'll try again with this paint and rewrite another review. Hopefully a good batch and I'll be giving it 10's next time.

i tried your drop test, i droped it from around 6 ft, it didnt break. i kept dropping it and it did not break. so i threw it up to around 10 ft, it bounced back up. i threw it up 20 ft, it broke.

im not saying your lieing im just saying that i tried and did not get the same results.
