Review: i got these the first day walmart supercenter opened up in my town. i figured, hey, its a new store with fresh, new inventory. this just might be a good time to get some paint before it sits on the shelves for a few months. so i go and find these. never heard of them or seen them before in my entire life (this was a few years back when they came out. yeah, late on the review i know) and was really interested in checking them out. so i buy 500 and get home and shoot some. they were extremely oily in the bag when i opened it up but very spherical. after i got done test firing them, i looked at my target and noticed a few more things. the shell is VERY VERY HARD, so hard i threw one up about a foot above my head (im 5'10 btw) and it bounced on the concrete slab i was standing on. the paintballs broke when i shot them but i was shooting at a 3x3 piece of metal. the shell is also clear, which surprised me. the color of the paintball you see isnt the shell but actually the paint. speaking of the paint, its so thin that i could see through it. it looked exactly and i mean exactly like the so called "paint" was a mixture of your average cooking oil and blue food coloring. i dont bruise easy and i got hit in the back of the hand by this during spring break and i had a bruise in the shape of a circle from then until a little after school started back up in the FALL.
Conclusion: RUN AWAY! after i got done with shooting not even all 500, i had to clean my gun because of how oily the paintballs were. here's a little math for you. tough hard shell+being very oily+see-through paint = a bad investment. this is a division of brass eagle and they have been labeled in the past for producing dangerous paintballs for a reason. buy something else at walmart
