Review: These, by far, were the worst paintballs I have ever used. I tested them in three different guns with the exact same result. Here are the results of my tests:

VL Triton II: I loaded the hopper with 200 rounds and followed all normal firing procedures. I fired 10 rounds at a 2" diameter tree about 10 meters out. The first shot went a few degrees off, despite the fact that I was aimed directly at the tree. The second and third shots followed different paths, and finally my fourth shot hit the tree. The fifth shot chopped and got stuck in the bolt face. The shots following either chopped or went in different directions. I took me nearly an hour to take apart my gun and valve assembly to clean it! The spring was so fouled I had to get a new one, which took a year for me to order.

WGP 99 AutoCocker: I loaded the hopper with 200 rounds and followed all normal firing procedures. I fired 10 rounds at a small bin about 10 meters away. The first shot hit the target dead on, but the second shot hit the dirt 2 meters in front of the target. (Despite the famed accuracy of the Orr-made gun.) The third shot rolled out of the barrel. The fourth shot hit about 20 cm off target and the fifth tore a hole 10 cm off. The sixth, seventh and eighth shots missed entirely by several centimeters. The 9th and 10th shots missed as well by even more than any shots before.

Spyder TS: I loaded the hopper with 200 rounds and followed all normal firing procedures. I fired 10 rounds at a 2" diameter tree about 10 meters out. My first shot, like the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th shots, missed the tree by several cm. The fifth inexplicably hit dead on target, but the 6th missed as well. The seventh also hit slightly off target. The eighth and ninth shots missed completely, and the 10th hit 4" off target.

I tested all 3 markers with different paintballs, and all markers performed flawlessly, with only a 1" margin of error.
Conclusion: My conclusion is that these paintballs are more accurate when thrown at the opposition than launched from a paintball marker. Under no circumstances should these paintballs be used as a primary ammunition supply!
