Review: After reading the reviews here, I took the chance at trying some of these at a scenario this weekend. I used the orange fill with yellow/orange shell for visibility purposes.

I bought these on recommendation they would be good for large bore barrels, this isn't the case. A good medium bore would be better, as the paint is small to mid sized. They seemed to be in good shape, minimal dimpling and good crisp feel. I did notice that some paint was smaller than others, not a lot of consistency for ball size. Some fit te wide bore nicely, others were WAY smaller. A medium bore would have cut the difference, but I chose to stick to the Stiffi.

On-field performance I felt was average. I couldn't see the splats for the most part, even though the paint was bright orange. It's also hard for me to tell what did and did not break as it was a typical scenario game. Many people decided that they didn't have to leave, or if they did they could just yell "medic" and they were live again.

But I will say that I shot 3/4 case without a squeegee on me in the field and I never had a problem. I had some roll-out issues, but that's to be expected when you mismatch bore size. I did go out of my way to crank out a huge rate of fire a few times, and the paint handled it well in the cyclone feeder.

Shot spread I blame on bad bore size as well, while on target the paint would travel 6" - 12" from main target at long ranges of 150'. I had to use a lot of paint sometimes to get the ball to go where I wanted it to go at close ranges too, but I blame that on bore issues. But I could put paint where I wanted it to go without a problem for the most part.
Conclusion: I wold recommend this as a good mid-range ball for people with mechanical blowbacks. It's not a tourney ball, it's got a harder shell good for sawing through scrub brush. For the price I paid for it ($36 a case) I certainly won't complain. It wasn't spectacular, but it wasn't as bad as some I've used in the past.

I wish I could give it a 7.5, but I'll round up to an 8 / 10.
