Products Used:
Marker Setup: Tippman 98 Custom
Smart Parts Progressive Barrel
20 oz CO2
Smart Parts Freak .691 insert
Any large bore (.691) barrel
Strengths: inexpensive
readily available (Wal Mart)
Weaknesses: Inconsistent size
Review: Big Balls are exactly what the name implies -- B-I-G. Fuggin' huge, in fact. 70% fit well in a Freak .691 insert. The other 30% are either unbelievably huge (.693) or average (.689).

30% variability seems high to me, but hey what do you expect? These are inexpensive paintballs, so i assume inconsistent shooting is normal. Just remember that with this paint, no matter what barrel you use, you can expect about one shot in three to fall short:
70 / 100: right size; low friction, low blowby
15 / 100: too big; high friction, nominal blowby (high friction = low muzzle velocity = short shot)
15 / 100: too small; nominal friction, high blowby (high blowby = low pressure = short shot)
Conclusion: Big Ball is a good buy for the spray-n-pray shooter (who can carry plenty of ammo); you can buy lots of it without taking out that 2nd mortgage.

For shot-to-shot consistency or limited-ammo play, seek a more consistently sized paintball.
