Review: I bought these solely for outlaw purposes as the fields close to me are all Field Paint Only. In Canada, forty dollars for a full case is a better price than you will get at most Walmarts, no matter how terrible the paint.

As far as good-quality paint goes this is worthless. I wouldn't advocate using these on any fields and I'd cringe even when giving this paint to renters. One in four paintballs are egg-shaped and many do not break; as a pump user it is kind of a pain to have to use these.

However, in my situation (jobless and in desperate need of my renegade-ball fix) for 2 cents a ball these could not be better. When playing out back with three or four people you stop caring about the equipment; the whole point of outlaw ball is to do it cheap and dirty, for fun purposes only, and I have to say that these suffice.

The only reason you would be buying these is for their price, and I can't say they aren't cheap. Better than buying a case at Canadian Tire, where you have no idea of the paint's age and no chance to check it for breaks before you purchase it. Other than that, there are no real redeeming factors to this. They won't chop or break for the sole reason that they hardly break upon a hit anyway. Play if you don't mind some bruises. At least these won't break in your cyclone feed like the Camotacs that XO also sell.
Conclusion: Use this for outlaw ball only. It's totally pointless to buy high-grade paint when you're playing out back. The whole point of outlaw is to have fun anyway, not to win. Buy the cheapest, most horrible paint you can get and hope it matches your barrel to some degree.
