Review: I bought a case of this paint since I am a returning player after almost a 10 year hiatus. I had no knowledge of the brand since I used to use Diablo or PMI Marballizer paint.

Box = Pretty generic white box with black lettering. Who cares for the box...

Packaging = Standard for a 2000 ball box, four bags all correctly sealed.

Paintball apperance = In the package they looked ok, but after a closer look I couldn't take my eyes away from the incredibly protrudent seam. I mean, it is clearly indicative that they will pose problems just because of that. There weren't many odd shaped or dimpled but that wouldn't be as much a problem as the seam would. The color was green with orange paint. Not really pretty but a hunter green color is great for woodsball games.

Paintball texture = The feel of it was that it had a really hard casing which is both a positive and a negative at the same time. The seam was clearly felt, other than that they felt smooth.

Experience = I tried it at a target 40ft away with a full tank of CO2 and the spray was everywhere. I had never seen so many balls take curves at such a close range. The target was a 2ftx4ft target and some of the balls cleared the target and went their way. I would have expected that to happen at 80ft with a low grade paint but this was just out there. I would have thought that the hard casing would stop ball breaks but one imploded on the barrel. I mean, there is no reason to even practice with these since you'll spend more times cursing and getting frustrated than practicing at all.

I thought I'd give them a try but now I have 1,500 paintballs that are pretty much useless.
Conclusion: All I can say is buy at your own risk. They have a very attractive price but I believe no frustration is worth the savings.
