Review: Realize that Stryker is divided into two ball batches - "old" or dated batches which receive generally poor reviews here, but note- the "New Formula" Stryker (when released, dunno) is what I have, and I must say, i passes muster. ("New Formula")
Now usually I get my paint at my local PB shop, but, if in a pinch and I have to go tosay, Wal Mart, not bad. Visible Impact USED to be my WalMart choice if I had to get paint quick; matter of fact it used to be outstanding, a sleeper ball, if you will, and the reviews reflected the same, but as is often the case in the paintball manufacturing world, supplier evidently changed, as Visible Impact are now way diffeent than they used to be- oval, egg shaped, different shell color, etc. Not the same Visible Impact I was using, at least. i returned them (few months back). So now I took a flier on the Stryker. Using a .691 barrel, which matched this batch well, I had no complaints with performance- shot well, relatively straight, broke on target, fill was acceptable.
What else is there at that price point?

NOTE- Beast Paintballs (look online) by Paintball Nation USA- best paint on the market, getting a cult following, best paint you can get for the $$. read the pbreview.com review

cant overstate it enough. Marbelizer clone.
Conclusion: Need paint in a pinch, inexpensive? You could do worse. I'd have no hesitation using this paint for my typical day of woodsball. Some of the negative reviews were for the "old" Stryker, seems the newly formulated version is seeing thumbs up feedback. ....ten bucks for 500? you betchya Hard to beat
