Review: In the summer these were decent balls. No real complaints although I thought they always flew a little more like a knucle ball than anything else.
I shot a few mixed in with some All Stars and Frostbites when it was around -5C once and they did shoot although not very straight -- this was in the ETEK3 with Pooty modded Cure3+ bolt.

Today we went out to test fire at some targets and the temp was around 0 to 2C. They were flying all over the place and on my Kaos (not my friends though...) they were breaking every other shot. We were both at 280fps and were killing ourselves laughing at how poorly they were flying. Curving, diving, up and down, zig-zag... hilarious! Then my Kaos totally jammed and I started to really clean it out; that's when I noticed the damn things were FROZEN!!
We grabbed a few more from our hoppers and the refill container and sure enough we couldn't break them in our hands! My friend shot a few that were frozen and they went about 10cm into a frozen mound of dirt from 15-20m away (top soil for houses being built)! I cannot even being to imagine how much it would hurt to get hit by one of these! I'd consider these summer only balls otherwise you risk serious injury.
On a positive note, the few Draxxus Frostbite we had with us (yellow shell, green snowflake print on shell, bright yellow/green fill) still shot pretty well through goopy barrels and stayed liquid.
Conclusion: Use in summer ONLY!
5 out of 10
