Proto Matrix Rail 2010.
Pure Energy 4500psi air tank.
Dye Rotor + high capacity lid and quick feed.
Standard two piece 14” micro honed proto barrel.
No less than 11".
Thick, bright gooey fill.
Do not work well in cold weather, at all.
These paintballs were stored at around 11ºC - 15ºC; which is their optimum storage temperature. On the field it was just above freezing - around 1ºC - 3ºC, and even colder with wind chill. I used a case of these paintballs in the morning session. Because of course; it's colder in the mornings.
Every ball fired seemed to sway, as if there was dimples and imperfections in the spherical shape of the ball. I had 4 barrel bursts out of 2000 balls fired, which, to all you newbie's out there is basically worthless. Also, not all of the balls burst on target.
However, when the balls didn't sway and hit everything apart from the target. And when they didn't break in my barrel. And when they finally decided to splat on impact; the thick, bright, gooey fill was clearly visible. And THAT my fellow paintball associates is the ONLY positive thing about these balls. But, doesn't every brand of paintball that retails for £35 ($55) have a thick, bright fill? I think so.
Stick to proto, even in cold weather conditions.
