Review: I used these back on August 7th a few years ago. These were junk. My friend and I got them at the local pro shop because they were cheap and on sale. "hey", I thought, "RPS makes good paintballs right?" So I thought...Upon opening the bags, I immedietly saw that most were highly dimpled and irregular shaped. In fact, I can still remember my friend at the time laughing at me and saying "ha, looks like you are going to be playing moonball!". Upon testing them I was appauled at just how crazy the balls were going after leaving the barrel. I messed with the velocity. Same results. I changed 3 different barrels. Same results. As for playing, well no need to go into detail about all that 'cause I think you get my point. But seriously, do you know how crappy it is to chop paintballs consecutively right before you bunker someone? As for the fill, it was a little bit too watery for my liking but they were alright. Upon breaking on contact they did alright too except for a few that didn't burst when they hit a solid object. But this same brittle nature and breakability caused numerous breaks in my barrel. I'd say for every 60 that made it out the barrel, one or two would be chopped. The accuracy was pretty awful. I was having to do some serious angling just trying to lob them a medium distance. I like it when paintballs are somewhat oily but these were just excessive to the max. One other thing that I've only experiences with these paintballs is how small they were. Several times the ball would just simply roll down the barrel and onto the ground (of course I wouldn't discover this until I shot and nothing happened). We even got some of the games on film and you can see a paintball just roll out of my barrel. The price was cheap and I see why because I paid for some cheaply made paintballs. Yet, I have found some good bargain paintballs but unfortunately, these were not one of those.
Conclusion: I would not use these paintballs again nor would I recommend them to anyone. Typically I go through every case of paintballs that I get one handful at a time but I would of ended up throwing out 80% of them. Trust me on this, because since October of 2002 I have used thousands upon thousands of paintballs and many, many different brands..and these are the worst of them all. Don't make the same mistake I did. I give them a 2 and not a 1 b/c they worked bad for my friend too but not as bad as mine.

[this has nothing to do with the review, but I'm quite possibly the only person on pbreview to ever be typing up a review and while doing so, have their office chair's back snap in half, sending them flying backwards and hitting their head on a treadmill]
