Spyder Esprit, Lapco Big Shot 14", Java Remote Coil w/slide check, 12 oz CO2.
Phantom SC, 11" stock barrel, ADCO Hot Shot sight.
Any large bore barrels.
Hard, doesn't break easily, the fill is like water,
This ball is completely unusable in my two barrels. I thought Lapco Big Shots were pretty accomodating barrels but when I tested the paint to barrel match, the ball literally got stuck in my barrel after going in about a centimeter. I couldn't blow it out for the life of me and I finally had to get my battle swab and jab it out, which took quite some effort. In all this the ball didn't break, which goes to show how hard the shell is. This ball broke in my Esprit 3-4 times, the last time jamming the bolt. It would careen out of my Phantom, which is one of the most accurate guns ever, like a drunk bat with no sonar.
I play stock class and ten of these balls would not even fit into a 10 rd. tube. The 10th one always stuck out above the rim. That's how abnormally big these balls are.
I haven't tested these with a large bore barrel so I can't really say if that would drastically improve the performance of this ball. I know that the shell bounces a lot and when it breaks it jams the bolt. The fill barely shows up at all on the other person. If you have a .70 caliber barrel, give this ball a try. Otherwise don't even bother trying to cram this thing down your medium bore barrel.
1 out of 10
