Review: I used these last weekend after having issues with shooting Evil in cold weather.

My friend picked up two cases of these for about $50 each at the local paintball shop. I picked up two bags at the field for about $20.

We figured we'd try a different paint since Evil kept breaking because it was colder out. This paint was definately not as prone to breaking in cold weather but it has a weakness that I don't think is worth the $45 (average) per case.

Firstly, about 70%-85% of the paint from the two cases my friend purchased at the shop (a respectible, single-owner shop, someone who actually cares about their stuff) had dimples on them. They were large enough that I took notice immediately.

The dimples absolutly failed to work in our flatline barrels. A spinning paintball with one flat side is GOING to break (in the barrel).

Firing these paintballs through straight / smoothbore barrels was fine - no breaks.

The two bags I purchased on the field must have been newer since their dimples weren't as large or pronounced. This leads me to believe that the paint in general - is poor quality.
Conclusion: For $45 i'd rather purchase some other decent paint - without dimples.

5 out of 10 since they worked fine in straight barrels and but broke in flatline barrels because of the dimples. Price is a little too high for that kind of quality.
Rating:
5 out of 10
