these paintballs are great. they shoot very straight and their shell is nice and strong. they dont get broken in your barrel. i used 500 and they all worked nicely. these paintballs are what i think as good quality. they look cool too. they brake on target nicely. these are great paintballs. Brass Eagle finaly did something good.
great price, great durability, great quality, u wont be dissapointed.
Their quality control must really suck. My friend was pacing, waiting for UPS to show up with his new Fenix. He's never played before. He was not wise to the Brass Eagle reputation. Got a case of a thousand for $36. As if that weren't bad enough, I let him gas up my gun to run a few through and blow some steam. Prior to this, I ran some (LOL) 2 year-old nelsons or RPS (can't remember because they really were that old) and had not a single problem. Everyone went downrange. Not the straightest, but out the barrel. Then the BE... I would conservatively estimate breakage at 75%. I kid you not. We actually started laughing about it because we had never seen anything like it. Don't blame the barrel - 14" J&J ceramic. Just to be sure that nothing was wrong with mine, my brother broke out his A-5. Same damn thing. Wait... it get's better. His marker finally showed up at 6:30. I called him, he came over. Time to load his Fenix. Had some of the BE loaded into some pods. Dumped from the pod to the hopper while sitting at the table. The three that didn't make it actually broke on the table after falling only one foot. I kid you not. I couldn't believe it. I've played with some really horrid paint in a pinch, but I've never seen anything like I did with these. Two words: The Plague.
Hey CB, Ive only used these balls a few times... and they're not too bad, but they're not very accurate. I have a JJ ceramic barrelon my spyder, and I already know you can't shoot .693 paintballs out of a .688 barrel. If you want some cheap wal-mart paint try some scorch, they work great with that barrel. As for your stock spyder barrel, I think it's .690... which isnt too great for afterburner paint either. I have shot them out of my autococker, with the .693 base on my empire barrel set, and they work great though. As for the A-5, I'm not a tippmann lover... I don't know what barrel size it is, but I know it's a mid-size, and requires quality paintball because the backspin will break them, so once again...not right for afterburners.
If you have a freak system this paint is not that bad. The reason you guys chopped was because this is VERY LARGE BORE paint. .692 and bigger. Most barrels are around .687 - .689, so naturally large paint doesn't fit and the shell gets cramped and chops it. I have a freak system and used this paint to test it, had no problems at all, not one chop off 200 rounds, which is good for brass eagle because they make low end products. This paint is good brass eagle paint as long as you have the right bore insert (I used .693). I still wouldn't recommend it though because you can get good Draxxux or PMI paint for the same price.
