Review: Played with the Allstars (yellow) for the 1st time this weekend in wet weather in upstate PA. Had been using RPS Marbs and most recently, JT Maxim but wanted to try something new.
I was very satisfied with this paint. The vast majority of the case had round balls with little to no noticeable seam. They were very consistent and accurate in shot placement. I was able to hit parts of markers sticking out from bunkers as well as body parts that would have been difficult without the two. I also noticed improvement in distance over other paint I have used (including the Marbs). This may have been because of the better barrel to paint fit though because I now have a barrel system allowing me to fit my paint better. Like I said above, I am very satisfied and will be purchasing Allstars from now on. I had used Marbs with great success in the past but had some issues with the new shell. Though it carries to the Allstars, I did not have the breakage problems I started having with Marbs.
The only negatives I have are:
(1) That some of the balls were out-of-round. This is nothing major though because you have to expect that in a jammed case of paint. The out-of-shape balls were few and didn't seem to affect accuracy
(2) Had some breaks early on. Some were in the barrel and some seem to have been from impact with the bolt. My marker is a Bushmaster and is low pressure which should fit this paint well. I had recently added my aftermarket regulators and have not tweaked the marker yet. Could be that I needed to lower the pressure. Also, the barrel breaks may have been me swinging my barrel to fast while firing.
In other words, I think that the fault does not lie just with the paintballs
As a side note... My friend had no breaks using his Angel with an "eye"
Conclusion: Accurate and consistent during regular shooting and rapid fire using an electro.
Quality VS Price is on par at just under 60 bucks (2k rounds) and you may be able to find them cheaper. I recommend this to anyone, specially with low pressure markers.
I give it a 9 because it's not perfect, but beats out all other paints I have used, including others not listed above.
Rating:
9 out of 10

Would this paint work for a Smart Parts Teardrop barrel?

Depends on the bore size of the barrel...
I don't know the size of the Teardrop but can tell you that I have used the .691 and .693 backs to my Edge system with good results. The .693 may be a little bit too large though. Also shot this paint out of my Angel Speed with the stock barrel with good accuracy and I believe the stock bore size is .693

.688 is the teardrops bore.... The all Star is rated at .688 also..... a good fit, I used the all Stars in my Teardrop and it was like shooting bullets.... dead on accuracy!
