Barrels:
Flatline users (like me) will be very happy with the consistent straightness. Also out of the 15000 paintballs I have used, NOT ONE BREAK in the Flatline barrel.

Don't use stock barrels as they are usually bad anyway.
Strengths: Doesn't break in barrel.
Price is reasonable at 40-50$ a case.
Great fill
Weaknesses: Sometimes the factory seal isn't always completely air tight.
Review: Blaze paint is great tournament paint, but I wouldn't suggest it for anything more than recball, woodsball, or just practice paint as there is better paint for you tournament players.

Woodsball- Great for woodsball as it is a bright orange color that you cant miss in the woods. It also doesn't break on small branches and leaves like alot of paint does. Although for those concerned about people being able to see the paintball coming at them, this may be a small problem as the shell is an orange color.

Flatline- It NEVER, NEVER break in your Flatline. And with the A-5 and the X-7, you don't have to worry about chopping anyway so you have 0% ball breakage 100% of the day. Its easily the best paint i've used for my Flatline. It always shoots stright and it always breaks on your target everytime. Anyone with a Flatline should buy this paint. You won't be disappointed.

Shell- The shell always breaks on targets and never in my Flatline. And everyone knows how picky Flatlines are. As I said above, it doesn't break on leaves and twigs, it just goes through them without alot of change in velocity. It also suprisingly works well in colder weather but anything below 40ish, I would use other stuff like Arctic Inferno.

Great fill- A nice, bright orange paint that you cant miss from all the way across the field even with bad eye sight (like mine). You cant wipe this very easily. Its not runny but its also not too thick. It's just right.

Price- The price is well worth the bang you get for your buck. My local shop is usually priced around 40-45$. I've seen it at some field that are 50$ though it never gets above that.

About the factory seal, every once in awhile, maybe in every 3 or 4 cases you get, you will get a bag that isn't air tight. Just put those paintballs in a plastic ziplock and you should be fine. Nothing too serious.
Conclusion: Nothing is 100% perfect but it easily gets a 9 from me as not many good paints works well all the time with Flatlines that isn't marbs at 70$ a case (or more).

I'm sticking with this paint for as long as i'll be ballin.
