On friends tippmans etc. excellent performance has also been noted with smart parts and JJ Ceramic barrels.
Strengths: Excellent in Cold weather. consistent, accurate, NICE THICK FILL. Cheap 42$
Weaknesses: May not always break after long hours in very cold weather, if long shot.
Review: These have recently been offered at my local shop for 40 a case. We have used many other types of lower to midgrade paintballs this winter, in search for a cheaper respectable ball. All others have become frustratingly brittle after a short while out in the below freezing temps. These will not break in your barrel in cold weather (none of us have had any thru 8 cases) and most of our games have been played in mid twenty degree cleveland winter days. Also a few newbies were firing these out of extremely hot Tippmans with stock barrels and thru 6 hours of these conditions outside none still broke. However, they seem to break very well on opponents. I would say about 1 out of every 100 shots might not break at distances past 75 feet after a long day in freezing temps. The seams exist, but are minimal. Fill is very nice and thick. Accuracy with these has been outstanding for the price, with some of us being able to consistently ( DROP) them into little holes at 25+ yards. These balls are only getting a 7.4 so I wonder if perhaps they are not fresh like ours. I have heard that a new company have taken these over and this might be the reason that these newer ones are stellar and stand out amongst all others in price class.
Conclusion: I am giving this product a 10, for price and performance. During Ohio's cold winters, they perform flawlessly in the cold, their only disadvantage being possibly not breaking at long distances. The temps around here are from mid teens to twenties, and they will perform well in these conditions, and even better in warmer weather. Accuracy is good to outstanding for woodsball use and the paint is very thick. Tippman's shooting hot at 340 fps will not break these with stock barrel after hours of playing in frigid temperatures. yet they break well on targets. I highly recommend these balls.
Rating:
10 out of 10
