Period of
Product Use:
6 months
1 year
Products Used:
Brass Eagle (yech) - No comparison, unless you let the JTs set around for a long time.
All American - Less barrel breaks on All American, but JTs seem to fly better and break on a target better.
Diablo Dusk - All around better, 'cept JTs are cheaper... see review.
Marker Setup: PMI Trracer pump with stock barrel
Tippman A-5 with R/T and stock barrel
No special recommendations.
Strengths: Cheap - 35-40$ a case.
Break on targets wonderfully.
Brightly colored.
Weaknesses: Horrible barrel breakage on month-plus old.
Weird performance in cold weather.
Review: They seem to shoot straight out of both my A-5 and my Trracer, as long as the weather isn't cold and the balls are new. They do this kind of weird flattening in flight in warmer weather, but it doesn't seem to affect accuracy, and makes for highly visable, softer splats. If you leave them laying around for more than a month they no longer flatten, but instead break every 5 balls or so, especially in my Trracer.

You can tell if they've sat around to long (if they have, they're worthless) by feeling them: they feel just slightly rubbery when new, and more slick and plastic when older. Also, try sticking one in your gun barrel and looking through and see if it's warped, or egg-shaped.
Conclusion: When conditions are prime (ie. new balls, warm weather), these balls don't break bad in either of my guns, prolly one in about 500. Reading the reviews here, I can only conclude that most of these guys have played with older JTs, or have had some kind of gun incompatibility.
If you're going to just buy a case for light rec games and intend to use it all in one go, these fill the bill nicely for the price. Also great for speedball to minimize bruises. ;)
7 out of 10
