Barrels:
barrel does not matter with these paintballs or bricks as i like to call them
Strengths: if by some miracle you shoot anything, like your foot, it might break
Weaknesses: there just is not enough room here for that look below
Review: O.k. here is the story
Got these at Galyans for $24 a 1000, thought hey thats a good deal i will give them a shot
Went to the field and discovered my buddy with a stock 98 custom also brought the same balls out
Circumstances involved with ball failure
40 degree weather outside (balls were kept in a heated truck around 65 degrees), no strenous running or jumping or shaking of the hoppers to aggitate the balls in any way
First off my buddys stock gun started vomiting paint about 1 hour into playing....barrel cleaned hopper cleaned out balls swapped out with warmer balls.....5 shots later more vomiting of paint
Next it was my turn... these things were curving not just one way but miltiple ways like a corkscrew ....we thought it was his barrel but NOOOO mine was doing it as well so we then thought hey lets give them one more chance and shot them through a 14" j&j ceramic barrel (which you know is nearly impossible to break a ball in) wrong balls breaking, sputtering paint, shell fragments everywhere
Decided we wouldnt let this bring down our day and toughed it out shooting maybe 1 good shot per 5 bad shots,,,,squeegie and repeat....hit my target at about 15 feet with on miracle shot and the paintball just bounced back, he could have picked it up and squeezed it at me with more effictiveness than me shooting it...and then low and behold CO2 is cold next thing i know i have a paint iceciccle coming out of my marker.
Not to mention these things were dimpeling in my pod that was just sitting in the truck...how can this be a quality ball when it collapses under the stress of the other balls laying on it
The best thing i did with these balls the entire time i played was throwing almost 500 of them at my target and hit it...
In my opinion these balls did not serve their purpose for what i was looking for which was a quality ball that would go straight, have the occasional ball break, not dimple, not gum up the innards of my marker, and break on contact


Conclusion: im forced to give this a 2 out of 10 because the balls utterly ruined my paintball experience for the day

you both have 98s it is the gun not the paint

The corkscrewing is most likley becasuse the velosity is set waaay to high. The paint vomiting is prob. from a bad bolt or the barrel coming slightly loose.

You noobs have 98 customs. You could get the gun cheaper than a case of paint.
