You want to be able to fit these to your barrel. The accuracy of this paint is very dependent on good paint to barrel match.
Breaks on target
Good bright fill
Sometimes oblong and inconsistent
I used these for the first time at Warpaint's SuperGame and was pleasantly surprised. I had read reviews saying that this paint was garbage, but I found that completely unfounded. However this paint is a bit inconsistent, it tends to be slightly oval shaped, if left in the sun this problem gets worse. It has a brittle shell and breaks on target, and thus some mechanical guns may have chopping and barrel break issues. My A5 shot this ok and my Vibe excellently so it depends on what you're shooting. Using a multi-part barrel kit helps counter the inconsistencies of this paint. With good paint to barrel match this paint flies straight and true without the oblong shape makes it fly oddly.
Overall I would recommend this paint to anyone on a budget looking for some mid grade paint. Electropneumatic guns seem to perform with this better than mechanicals, however it is still fairly good paint and worth the money. Oh and a little secret, this premium stuff is the same as the economy CORE Action just with a different shell, so save some money and go for the Action.
