Products Used:
Draxxus Rec-Sport. The Rec-Sport is much better suited for speedball or light woodlands where you're not shooting people behind foliage. Basically any field where you can position yourself to have a clean shot at somebody, is a bad field to use Basic Training paintballs on.
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 Custom Pro (Stock everything) w/Crossfire 68/45 tank.
Highly recommend the flatline. These paintballs are so small that the flatline can put a ridiculous amount of backspin on these babys. Somebody with an X-7 was shooting so far with his flatline that they went over the nets on the opposite end of the field and were landing half way into the neighboring X-Ball field. These were full tournament size fields. I've never seen a paintball shoot that far. Lobbing distance is just ridiculous with a flatline, but you aren't going to hit anything at that distance, let alone get a break at that distance. Though some people were a little worried about safety, accidentally shooting over nets = bad.
Strengths: They're really hard paintballs. Shoot through grass, bushes, leaves, twigs, etc.
Weaknesses: They're hard.
Hurt a lot.
Lots of bounces.
Review: They hurt like hell when you get hit by one, but the great thing about hard paintballs is that you can shoot people through foliage. It makes woodsball games a lot more fun when you can jump behind a bunch of thick grass or a bush and with a few shots, you'll have made yourself a nice little hole in your cover to shoot through.
If you run low on air, you're totally screwed. These paintballs will not break at less than 250 fps, with a target at 30 feet.
Conclusion: These paintballs will tear right through any grass, twigs and bushes as if they were paper. Recommend padding or a 20 foot no shooting rule when in use. They will cut into uncovered flesh at close ranges, breaks sharp. Recommend 280-290 fps and used in heavy woodlands where most people are under foliage, most of the time.. For the price, they deserve a good rating. They do what they were made to do, play great in thick woodland. I don't recommend that they're used anywhere else.
