Review: My friend was moving out of the barracks, and gave me this case of paint, i've never shot diablos before, so didn't really know what to expect from them.
Did a check on the paint, unlike other paints i've shot, they weren't overly "wet" or oily, was slightly on the powdery side.
Did not have any noticeable defects in the paint, dimples, cracks etc.
Started shooting, noticed a curve to some of the shots, not anything crazy, but enough to make corrective targeting. others shot straight and accurately. perhaps its my barrel, but there seemed like a few just dropped through the barrel, and compared to a box of zaps i shot a while back, seemed slightly smaller on the .68 tolerance scale. +/- .01. thats the only thing i could think of really.(i took a tech math, so its not like im pulling a number out of nowhere)

The fill on the blue/greens was an almost flourescent yellow. bright, and noticeable. Paint seemed to have a decent thickness, not runny or thin like some of the cheaper paint i've shot over the years(walmart).

The balls themselves have a thicker shell, so they arent as brittle, i dropped one as a test, and it bounced well without a dimple, but broke with ease on the seams when dropped from about an inch higher.

Overall, its a great box of paint, for a free box im not going to complain.
Conclusion: Great quality paint all around.
Slightly smaller ball, but good for rec and regular field use.
due to the curve in the shots, i was slightly disappointed, due to it being a better quality ball. but with a reg/stabilizer setup, no velocity spikes and pressure was stable(+/- 6FPS), with Co2 i could understand the curving, but it was probably due to the size being slightly smaller, i don't have an evil pipe kit or similar to test that theory, perhaps somebody else does and can test that out. will edit if i can test it out again this weekend.(either buy a kit or borrow a bore sizer)

i give it a 9/10, im not going to grade too heavily on the minor inconveniences. it broke on impact, and was visible at a distance. really thats what you want to happen. everything else is just circumstantial at best.
9 out of 10
