Review: I was broke, and instead of gettin evils, i tried these.

when i got home at night, i got iffy, because the bad reviews these balls were gettin, bad paint can ruin a day of paintballin

the next moring i loaded 10 to 12 into my a-5 and shot them, and i the accuracy was good, i had no hooks or curves.

when the game started and my ROF increased the balls were shattering.
the balls seem to do fine when firing one at a time slowly, but when you shoot fast they seem to break the most.

i also read that these balls were a medium large bore paint. some rolled right thru my ceramic (.687) when my barrel was off the gun, but a few clogged like paintballs should.
Conclusion: Not bad, accuracy and ball flight are good, but ball breaks at high rof is what kills ya.
the optimistic way of viewing this..... i got good practice at using my new squeegy.. =)

Your breakage prob at a high rof might have been a ball rolling forward, and being shot before exiting the barrel. If your barrel is ported it might have rolled past the porting and not been shot out fast enough due to lack of pressure, in turn being shot by the next one, not yet rolled or "clogging" as you put it. I have had this problem on my Angel when getting drop-off from cold weather.
