Review: I paid $50 per case of 2000.

These paintballs were insanely thin, which is a good thing and a bad thing at the same thing.

To give you an idea of how thin they were, I put one in my Dye Locklid Pod, shook it, and it broke.

I dropped one on to a small rock from about 1 meter in the air, and it broke.

Heck, I dropped one on to the ground from my hopper while standing, and that broke too.

The balls did fairly well in my pumped Autococker, and in my friend's Smart Parts SP8. They were very, very good for those markers, and would reliably break on every person that we shot them at. The balls also didn't curve outside of what is normal for a paintball.

However, three of our Tippmann 98 Customs and my BT Delta Elite consistently chopped every ball we fired, sometimes every other ball, even when we switched to air and used low FPS settings. The paint and the style of gun were the only things they had in common, so I'm assuming that it was the mix of the paint and style of gun that caused them to chop.
Conclusion: This paint does have it's uses for speedball and pump players, so I will give it an 8 for performing exceptionally well there.

However, with the ridiculous amount of chopping it did in several low-end mechs, I'm not impressed and I would not recommend anyone use these.
