Review: Well for $44/case this may have been the worse purschase of paintballs I have ever made. We bought the case as the entry level paint at a local field. The box was undamaged and the paintballs were nicely packaged in sealed bags. There were no ball breaks in the bags, so the handling and packaging were good. However, that is were the good stops. First the paintballs were not uniform in diameter. A few were significantly smaller. It seemed that at least 1 in 10 paintballs were dimpled. One paintball had three dimples on it!
The brown shell seemed ok. It was certainly less brittle than Marbs etc, but it broke in good contact. We didn't get a barrel break or break in the hopper all day.
However the fill was very poor. It was chalky white that you couldn't really see from the other side of the field. So you never really knew if you go someone out. Also I was wearing a black and gray Dye jersey and I could barely see the fill on myself!
If given a choice I would not use Origin Combat Basic Training again. All of the other paintballs I have ever used have been better quality for less money than these.
Conclusion: If you have another choice in this price range-take it. These are not a very good value.
