Review: These are much softer than anything else you can put inside your Cyclone. If you're using a set of X-7 paddles, you're still not even close to being as pliable as these things. The tips of the star are very flexible, but become stiffer as you approach the center, because there's more material. You can easily flex the material with your fingers. Also, there are no sharp edges like you'll find on Tippmann paddles. If you look at each of the arms on the stock paddles, you can see that there is a point where the arms tun sharply and there is a corner that makes contact with the ball. These paddles don't have that. Every corner that makes contact with a paintball is rounded.

I picked up a pair of these because I recently ran into the worst paint I'd ever seen. I was shooting entire volleys without a single intact ball leaving the barrel. Barrel breaks, cyclone breaks, chops... you name it and I was getting it. I even had balls pop in the hopper just from being jarred.

I put these paddles on and took this same paint for a spin. I shot about a bag of paint. I was still getting breaks, but nowhere near as frequent as I had before. I'd guess a 50% reduction in breakage. I had expected there to be soup in the cyclone when I pulled the hopper off, but to my astonishment, there was almost nothing. What little paint there was inside the cyclone looked like splatter from barrel or breech breaks. I was pleasantly surprised.
Conclusion: If your Cyclone is having trouble breaking paint, I highly advise these.
