Review: The brand I've been loyal to since the beginning decided to raise their price, so I started trying other brands. These were on sale, so I bought a box.

I opened the box, and the first thing I noticed was an oblong ball yellow, soft and pointy at one end, round at the other, like a tear drop or an egg. This is acceptable for such a cheap box of paint. As I looked through the rest, I noticed more and more of these balls. In fact, most of the balls I saw were not round. I hand counted 75 balls out of all 500 that were completely unusable in any gun. They would have busted. That's 3 out of every 20, or 30 out of every hopper full. Completely unacceptable. The rest were sort of misshapen, but useable.

I emailed the company about this product, and this is part of what they had to say:

"The Shield grade of paintball is our lowest and is intended for Field Operators, who use paintball guns that will fire larger and less well shaped paintballs without them breaking in the gun."

The only problem here, IS THAT THE BOX DOESN'T SAY THAT! In fact, it doesn't say anything about anything, except the warnings and the grade. It says that they are standard grade paintballs. Do these sound or look like standard grade paintballs?

Conclusion: Terrible balls (that's what she said). The website says use them for bulk team practice. So much time would be wasted cleaning out your team's equipment that there wouldn't be much practice at all. Unless you are practicing cleaning your guns. Then by all means, by the 2000 box.
