Review: I tested these out against the X7 paddles and used 2yr old Scorch paint. Compared to the "softer" X7 paddles, the squishy paddles blows them out of the water. The Scorch paint I had was breaking from drops of about 18inches, so I knew it was extremely brittle. For the X7 paddles I was doing single shots and getting breaks every 10th ball or so, again this is 2yr old paint so I was kinda expecting it. I swiched the paddles out for the squishy paddles and didn't get a single break out of a bag of 500. Even when I put my RT on and ripped an entire hopper non stop I didn't get 1 break.
Conclusion: If you like to shoot extremely brittle paint, or like to shoot at high rates of fire, I highly recommend a set of these.
9 out of 10
