Review: Ahhhh, core prime... seems to me the first 2 reviews are from people selling this stuff, and the 2 reviews preceding mine are from people who have actually used it...

I bought 2 cases and didn't look close at first, relying on the very strong recommendation from mistake

I like another reviewer was told that Core Prime is identical to PMI Premium. In fact I was "guaranteed" it was. At first glance the 2-tone shells look very similar to PMI Prem, but if you can, open a case of each up, and take a very close look at each brands' roundness. They're not in the same league in consistency.

I played first in humid cold weather (38-45deg) - shot horribly inconsistent
Played next on a dry cooler day (45-55) - same - horrible inconsistent flight
Played indoor (60-65) - no surprises - shot like crap

So, If what I'm told is true, I'm guessing Core Prime are the balls that don't pass PMI Premium's Q/A standards. It's the "Outlet Mall" brand of PMI. If they have a bad batch, try something experimental, or have incorrectly stored/expired previously shot PMI Prem - slap Core Prime on it and done.

I sure hope the next team we play against are shooting these.

One more thing that says something about this brand - try to find anyone else who sells these other than PB-online and xtremez. Good Luck!
Conclusion: Not going to use again.

Although It's nice to have paintballs that don't break in the barrel, it's also nice to have a paintball that shoots straight.

I'll switch to a ball that does both.
