Barrels:
Just about anything Smartparts will kick (_!_) but NOTHING will help you shoot this paint.
Strengths: They break.... well that could be a weakness for these too
Good fill
Weaknesses: I didn't expect tournament grade paint, but I didn't expect this either...
Review: Diablo in my experience is an excellent paintball producer. Midnight and other brands by this company range from good to tournament grade depending on how much hard earned cash you're willing to dish out. It was ten bucks cheaper than my regular paint (RPS Big Ball) give or take so I decided to try this white box RecSport. I didn't expect tournament grade obviously, but I did expect a certain level of quality because I trust the Diablo name. I was disappointed to say the least. The paint is fairly "accurate" for the first ball, but once the barrel becomes lubricated with the follow-up shot, the next few rounds are doomed until you can squeegee your barrel. In fact, at the end of a round of speedball, my barrel was actually dripping pink. When the balls did hit the target, it made a brilliant splatter that is close to impossible to wipe without difficulty. Shot for shot, this is horrible paint. I was obviously frustrated by its overall performance in what I consider close to ideal paintball weather. I broke between seventy five to one hundred rounds in about a half case even with a good squeegee, overall rendering about five hundred rounds useless not to mention the paint that sparsely resembled a sphere. I got frustrated and gave the rest to my opponents. Overall I would NOT recommend this paint, even if it were free. For the price it isn't even good practice paint for those of you who do. It is insulting that such poor quality paint is advertised as being designed for us "rec ballers."
Conclusion: Don't spend money on this. It is far too frustrating to feel like you saved yourself some money. You will probably spend the ten dollars you saved on advil. A few good qualities, but not enough to make this paint what it could or should be.
