Review: I have been using Visible Impact paint for a while now because the only local place to buy paintballs is Wal-Mart. It is usually in abundance there and for a reasonably cheaper price. I think a case of 2000 is $38.95. I have seen them in a red shell or a two tone red/yellow shell, both with a bright pink fill.
Every time I have used Visible Impact the balls come out of the bag without dimples, pockmarks, or flat sides. The shells are actually a little strong, however they always seem to break on target. I have never had any chops in the gun when my gun was fully operational (when I had air issues there were breaks but it wasn't the paint's fault) and I have never been dissapointed with the way it breaks on target.
The bright shell is an issue because your opponent can spot the paint coming at them and trace it back to you. Also the fill, while very bright and thick tends to be very oily and can leave a residue on many surfaces.
Conclusion: For a casual player Visible Impact is a cheap and readily available, found at most sporting goods stores or Wal-Marts. It is quality enough for casual players, however higher performance players who play regularly on maintained commercial feilds may find it lacking.
