I've shot them throught my J&J 14" Ceramic Barrel, and a friend of mine shot them through a 32* Whisper, so i'm going to say any barrel is good.
Strengths: Thick Fill (No Wipers)
Fly straight
Good Shell
Weaknesses: If you explode a ball in your hopper, you are screwed till you clean it.
Review: Myself and a buddy saw the 1500 Buckets on sale at a local sports store for $25 (they usually are $40) so we had to go down and pick up a few buckets. Upon getting them home i brought them down into my basement and opened them up to see if any of the three 500 bags per bucket had broken balls in them, and boy did i get a suprise as i lifted the lid!!! The smell of the worst bathroom you've ever been in is about the best way i can describe the smell. After a few minutes of leaving the bucket open, the smell did go away. Of the six 500 bags i had from my 2 buckets, 2 bags had one broken ball in them.

The following weekend i went out to play. The balls flew great, and the fill is really thick, adn bright blue. If you got hit with these balls everyone could see it! Not to mention that the paint is so thick, if someone tries to wipe it off in play, they are only going to succeed in smearing it all over their clothes.

Due to the thick fill you do have to be careful though... I was in a woods field and managed to trip over some barbwire. Needless to say my gun and me went down hard, and i broke a few paintballs in my hopper. I figured it woudln't matter much and kept shooting. BIG MISTAKE!!! the paint and broken balls tore my accuracy up and before long my barrell had more balls in it than my hopper!!! I had to switch to my backup VL200 hopper for the rest of the day because i didn't want to take apart my Revolution in the field (not to mention that i didn't have a screwdriver on me).
Conclusion: I recommend getting this product, especially if you can find it on sale like i did. Its a great product for the money and it works like a champ!

Why would any other paintball do better if it exploded in your hopper?

not as much fill, that is the reason I love Zaps they have a lot of fill in them. For example, a VL Heavy Metal has like no fill in it so if it breaks in your gun or hopper you don't have a bunch of paint messing things up.
