Paintball
Experience:
1 year
Similar
Products Used:
PMI, Blaze, Dusk- all fairly similar to each other but much better than recsport
32 degrees Team Colors, Competition- both better than recsport
BE, Zap, Viewloader- worse than recsport
Other various paints- I can't exactly remember
Marker Setup: JT Excellerator 4.0, 12v Revolution, 12" '99 All American, 9oz. CO2
Recommended
Barrels:
I've only shot with my All American. I have seen it shot through an RT barrel- person liked it, though prefers PMIs, etc over it. I also saw it shot through a Ceramic- person didn't like it.
Strengths: Decent fill (mine was yellow, shows up well, wipes pretty easy though)
Reasonably accurate
Brittle- Breaks on target (2-3 bounces out of a case and only when I was low on CO2), and sometimes in your gun.
Cheap- not sure how mich it costs online, but it was $48 a case in a shop, which are normally overpriced.
Weaknesses: Worst-shaped balls I have ever seen. BE, Viewloader, etc. have noticably better form. Doesn't seem to make it way too inaccurate, but I think it dramatically reduces consistancy. (May have been my case, but I have seen 2 other cases from the same store that looked the same).

Breaks in my barrel/chops. I have shot perhaps 5,000 under my new setup (AA barrel, 12v revolution), 1,500 of which were recsport. The only breaks/chops that I have ever had under my new setup were from the recsport, totalling 5-8 or so.
Conclusion: If you can find these cheap online, go ahead. But be prepared for chops/breaks in your gun. I might buy these if I could get them for like $30, but otherwise, I'd rather pay the extra money to get a $45-50 case of PMI, Blaze, etc. 5 due to lack of bounces and price, but egg-shape, breaks in gun, and other badness above described.
