Review: I have bought this paint several times before. I usually buy them by the 500 and I have now put through roughly 1500 paintballs between my 98 Custom and Invert Mini. I just recently purchased 2 fresh bags of paintballs today. My local paintball store supplies both Diablo Midnight, and Diablo Heat paintballs and the Odd time BT camo paintballs. I was looking for something with an ok price range but still good quality paint.

I have now fired off 500 more paintballs through my Invert Mini. I have so far, not had any breaks and the paintballs, for the most part fly straight and true. There have been no egg shaped paintballs so far and they mostly will break on contact. There are the odd bounces from this gun but for backyard shooting, it`s fine.

I did the drop test with these paintballs and I had bad bad results. Out of the 5 i dropped, none broke and I was dropping them from over my head. So in other words the shell could have been made a little thinner. If you have a flatline barrel, this would be a good complimentary paint for it though.

Another small issue I had with the paint is the fill on it isn`t very thick. It is noticeable but it isn`t very bright, and I bet it could be wiped really easily.

Other than those minor little annoyances I had no issue and I managed to fire off a pod each time in my mini on semi auto in less than 15 seconds.
Conclusion: Nothing is worth getting a 10, so I give this product a 9. In my opinion it has a better use for backyard shooting, chronoeing, or practice. It is a fairly cheap, and reliable paintball and if you can deal with the smell, then pick these up. Its worth it!!!
