Review: Used these once last weekend, and due to the cold(er) weather in PA at Wanna Play Paintball, I purchased the winter paintballs to avoid cold weather brittleness. These paintballs are a bit bigger, have a shiny coating and inconsistant seams. They flew fine out of my A5 and Custom 98 with smooth bore barrels, but were horrible with my Custom 98 Flatline barrel. Literally, every shot went curving off to who knows where.... (No consistency whatever!!!!!)

From a quality standpoint, I did not have any breaks, but the weather wasn't that cold, so can't really speak to extreme play.

Based on what I saw, its really just run of the mill paint for winter, nothing special.
Conclusion: Overall, not bad paint, and if it holds up in *really* cold weather may be fine. But do NOT use this in any Tippmann Flatline barrel or you will be severely disappointed. 1 out of 10 for Flatline, 7 out of 10 for smooth bore barrels.
7 out of 10
