Barrels:
I used my Custom Products 14 inch .689 barrel.
My brother used an Impulse Vison with a .693 barrel.
Strengths: This opinion given is for my Autococker listed above with the Custom Products .689 one piece barrel and my brother shooting an Impulse Vision running at 160 p.s.i. with a .693 barrel at 280 f.p.s.. We both shot about half a case each.

We bought this paint because we were setting up an outing with friends and it was cheap.

With both reached the same conclusion with the paint. It shoots well but not great. The paint seldom broke in the barrel, consistently broke on target, and the fill is thick. Autocockers are renowned for their excellent accuracy and this paint worked well in my marker.

My brother also enjoyed good performance with his Impulse. The Impulse bore is large so he had fewer breaks than I did.
Weaknesses: Accuaracy was not consistent from one hopper to the next. I would shoot a hopper that would almost land ball on top of ball, reload and suddenly the paint would curve like a major league pitcher. Not all of the paint behaved in the this manner but it was enough to notice. So while it shot well most of the time there were some moments when it left something to be desired.
Conclusion: This paint is good for backyard and recreational play. It is inexpensive (we paid $47.50 a case) and shoots well. It is not tournament quality paint. If you are playing at your own place or there is a "Bring Your Own Paint" day at your local field this paint will allow you to have fun, shoot consistent shot patterns, and keeps the cost low.

The rating given is compared to the best high quality paint on the market.

Yeah, we don't need exact stuff. Just need the barrel an gun man. Plus, these balls suck. They may be good for play, but after effects are massive. They stain wood and don't come off. So everything is permanatly white at Wasaga Beach Paintball Adventure.
