The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of
Product Use:
4 years3 of 6 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Products Used:
RPS Marbilizer (good)
RPS All Star (good)
Diablo Inferno (good)
Marker Setup: Spyder (OLD 1998 model, no Low pressure setup)
Benchmark Exp. Chamber
Benchmark double trigger
DYE 14" Boomstick
VL 9v Revolution
Strengths: - Hard for the cold weather
- large, bright fill (hard to wipe, could stain)
Weaknesses: Okay, I've used Polar Ice since I've started playing whenever I got cold here in Indiana. I've always liked how they were hard for the cold weather and you couldn't bust them in your barrel.

....but now....

since this winter started, I've went back to the polar ices....they worked better than the other brands in the winter......

Then yesterday (1/19/03) the temperature dipped below 25 degrees.....

....then the so called "winter balls" were growing dimples, the seams were showing easily, balls were breaking, accuracy was average AT BEST, and everybody complained about how frail the balls were.

Cold weather paintballs? Only if you consider 40 degrees cold....
Conclusion: It's false advertising for those who live in the northern states.....

They used to be good until this years batch....what the hell happened?

I've never seen paintballs with large seams like this that didn't have the "Brass Eagle" name attached to them

Not buying these again unless RPS makes them with a higher quality shell like the dull shell they use with the marbs and the all stars, only harder and better for temps below 32....

maybe it was because I didn't use Low pressure air........but some of us rec-ballers can't afford that......

I expect more from a paintball designed for "extreme, cold weather use"
4 out of 10

I live in the northern states too..(connecticut) and these worked perfect! There is nothing wrong with them I could see.

I used to use them every winter. They were fine, but they were terrible that day; worst balls I've ever seen....They're probably good balls like you said, but the ones I had that day were completely unusable. I threw the rest away in a ditch.

Maybe I can get a hold of another case and try them....but everytime I ask for them at the store I go to they're either out or their shipment has been delayed.

I have used these two times. The first time, they where decent, with only a few barrel breaks. The temperature was about 45 degrees. The second time was just today. The temperature was below 30 degrees, and I had barrel breaks at best 8 out of 10 shots. I will never waste my money on these again.

First of all you must be a true baller because what crazy @$$ plays outside when its below 20 degrees? Also its near impossible to find a ball that doesnt start to deform below 25 degrees.

I used these once and it was 50/50. I would have a few really good games with no breaks and than i would have one game where ALL of them chopped. But I think I was using a small barrle. I have a linear. Would that work???

I am from ontario, and i bought a case of polar ice balls, and they completely suck
i have a sypder MR2, which generally shoots quite straight, but when using the polar ice, there is no accuracy.
almost all of the balls are dimpled and deformed, and im not even going out in sub 30 temperatures
