Spyder Xtra, 12" stock barrel (also used 14" Dye Xcel), 12OZ C02, Bob Long Torpedo Regulator set to 300PSI, venturi mod, macroline, Dead On Dropforward, 32* Magnaport valve and pin
Well, I can say that the 14" Dye Xcel doesn't work very well with them. I'm still looking for a good match for the Xcel, but this paint works great with my stock barrel.
Price, Consistency in paintballs, thick fill, durable container
Well....the smell, field I go to doesn't allow ZAP paintballs
I bought these paintballs for practice in my backyard, and they were dirt cheap: 500 paintballs for $12! Anyways, I didn't expect to get wonderful results from such a cheap set of paintballs. Oh, and I recommend that you DO NOT pour these things into your hopper when indoors without proper breathing apparatus: these paintballs STINK! They smell like pond scum....yuck. Pouring them into my hopper was easy, since the 500 pack came in a plastic jug container that makes pouring them out a breeze, with no spill unless you put them in too fast. They're pretty consistent in shape, and the shells are strong enough so that they won't break in the barrel, but weak enough to break on target. I shoot at a wood block covered with a towel in my backyard for target practice (as well as tangelos from our little tree...don't tell!). Even with the towel on, they still broke every time, except for one. The fills are white, so they look like bird crap, but they're thick and difficult to wipe off. I should mention that the fills are also why the field I go to doesn't allow ZAP paintballs: the fill tends to stain clothing really badly, making it difficult to wash out. It's almost a match in heaven with my stock barrel, these paintballs have a perfect fit, and shoot pretty far. I can't guarantee how far they can go, since I shoot about 40-50 feet from my target, but they fly in a pedictable arc, and don't spin in different directions.
Aside from the rancid smell and that my field doesn't allow them, these are remarkably good paintballs for the price. I'll use these from now on as practice paint. Taking into consideration the smell and the fill thickness, I'll give these a 9/10. Maybe Candadian-made paintballs aren't so bad after all =P
