Powerballs are smaller bore than these, have a more brittle shell than these, have a little better seam than these. Diablo Dusk are about the same bore size, have a somewhat more brittle shell, and about the same seams. BE are not even half as good as these.
Blue spyder E-99, 20 oz co2, No electric hopper.
I recomend barrels that use larger bores around .689. If you try to run these through a barrel with too small a bore you will have lots of ball breaks and chops.
The main selling point of these balls is there price. I got a case of 2000 for $30.00. I was very surprised and very very pleased with their quality and performance. Not a single broken ball in the box that was packaged in four bags of 500. The shell is tough. Even though the shell is tough the balls always broke on target even at longer ranges. when they hit their target the shell usually splits along the seam and leave a nice bright thick paint mark. me and 5 other guys ran this case through several diff guns including, spyder E-99, black dragun compact, tippman custom 98, Edge pg1-pro tornado, point zero model 83, and even BE stingrays. we only had 2 chops out of the entire case. We did have a couple of jams though too. but the balls shells were so tough that they stopped the bolts but did not break the paintballs.(really nice to not have to stop and clean the guns and made clearing the jams real easy too.) Even though these balls have a tough shell they broke almost every time on target for us.
I can't think of anything bad to say about these paintballs.
I highly recommend these paintballs. remember not to try to use them on too small a bore barrel or they will break a lot. They are as accurate as any paintballs I have used, break consistently on target, almost never break in your gun(as long as you use a bore close to .689), and have bright thick fills.
I am sure that there are better paintballs available but you will have to pay for more quality too. I can understand doing this if you are gonna be playing in a tourney or something. but for recreational or woods type paintball games I think this is easily the best bang for your buck. I would say these paintballs are on a par with paintballs costing $40-$50 per case (and maybe even higher depending on manufacturer, you know some paint is just over priced)
