Review: Played with these paintballs today. Very good performance in cold weather. The temperature started at 27 degress F, and did not go above 32 degrees. I shot 1000 round with zero breakage. Other guys were breaking paint left & right because of the cold weather. I think my anti-syphon and expansion also helped with the cold weather.

As far as I can tell, cold weather balls are made from the same material as standard paintballs - only the shell is thicker since paintballs become more brittle in the cold. On the box it says "should be stored between 50 to 86 degrees F (10 to 30 degress C)". Therefore, you want to take the same precautions as you would with normal paintball. When you are playing, keep unused paint in a warm car or cooler.

I was worried at first when I saw the paint was blue. I didn't think it would show up, but it was very bright. I put two paintballs in the freezer the night before playing to see if they would freeze. They did not freeze, though one dimpled. Case of 2000 costed $59 from local paintball store.

***edit 1/25/04**** Used this paint again in 22 to 28 degree F weather. Excellent results. Shot straight zero ball breaks. Worked well in Tippmann's and Autococker

I am not sure how other winter paintballs perform, but the Draxxus Artic Inferno rock!
Conclusion: This is a great cold weather ball for temperatures at 32 degrees F. More expensive, but worth it when below 32 degrees F. I plan on using these paintballs for rest of the winter season.

Dear Mr. UrbanRanger04,

Thanks for the constructive comment.

Ever wonder how a Thermos keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold? Well, if you figure that one out, it is the same reason you put paintballs in a cooler during the winter when you go outside to play paintball.

Putting Blaze Artic Inferno paintballs in a freezer doesn't cause them to harden. How do I know? I put two paintballs in the freezer for the night. However, this does destroy the quality of the paint.

Wow, YOU guys are the idiots. Paintballs don't freeze in the freezer. They have tested it, and they don't freeze; it just makes the shell more brittle. Thats why winter paints have thicker shells- because regular paint shells are are too thin. If you don't believe me, there is a video on youtube testing this "theory." Do some research before you try to make yourself sound smart and cool. Noobs.
