Barrels:
J&J Ceramic worked okay (at least they clean up easily)
Strengths: Bright and thick fill
Weaknesses: Waaayyy to brittle for rec play.
Review: I first played with these in October in El Paso. 90 degrees and they seemed a little brittle - even had a couple of breaks in the Autococker.

Played with them December in El Paso from 35 degrees in the morning to about 45 degrees in afternoon - Terrible brittleness even though they were kept in the sun an protected from wind:
Breach breaks.
Barrel breaks.
Hopper breaks.
Pod breaks.

Maybe fine for super gentle tourney level markers but horrible on the gear we used:
LP Fenix - about one out of 30 would breach break.
VS2 - about one out of 10 would barrel break.
VS1 - about one of 10 breach break.
Sonix - Hmmm. None broke in this marker or barrel. Interesting.

Now brittleness aside, they have a thick bright fill and break on target and fly pretty straight. They are about 38 bucks a case at Academy plus tax.
Conclusion: Probably a good value if you play in warm weather and have a really gentle marker. But even if you shoot a high end marker, I suspect you may encounter problems with breaks in hoppers and pods.
Rating:
8 out of 10
