Review: The first thing I'd like to say is that I'm paranoid about keeping paint right around 75 degrees. I keep it all in a nice cool spot in a closet that doesn't get any hotter than that, ever. Using the default setting for the B2 I couldn't get more than one ball in a dozen to come out unbroken. Changed the speed down to 2/6 and that problem was solved. While this was going on I found that balls were breaking just before they left the barrel (@280 fps). I then had to reduce the cocking pressure and thus overall speed to around 8bps in order to shoot on a regular basis, with a .689 barrel. The day of play the paint grew substantially because of the high tempratures and nothing less than a .692 barrel would work. Even then, just running around I found broken balls in my pods, and probably dumped close to 600 over the course of a day, where I only shot around 1500 (mainly as a result of constant barrel cleaning).
Conclusion: I honestly don't feel like it should be this much work to shoot a paintball. Of the two cases I bought, only about half actually were shot at fellow paintballers. It also can't be used with high rates of fire (it's not hard to pull more than 8bps in a game) which is kind of a downer. In cooler weather, better results may be obtained as the shell would be slightly stronger. If you can get them out of your barrel they're a great ball, but it's a lot of work to get to that.
