The most dependable Rec-paint anywhere, Midnight is economical, without the "mystery batches" that plague the other low-priced brands. Fills wash out, and Midnight runs clean through every kind of marker. Now available in colored shells: Moonshine Yellow, Crimson Red, Aurora Orange, and more.
The DraXxuS Midnight Paintballs are older, so they are not commonly available anymore.
i've used PWI Smoking Dragons, PWI Player's Choice, Draxxus Midnights, and strykers and personally the best i've used are the smoking dragons and the midnights.
Spyder Pilot ACS- Pink and black
Apache ricochet hopper
Dye Ultra Light and boomstick Barrel- pink tips and black back.
I run with CO2 but i wanna convert to air.
dye barrels, youll never go wrong with dye.
Nice Bright Shiny color, consistent, majority are a nice shape, accuracy, and they break easily.
In barrel pops, Wipeable, and a few egg shaped.
This is grade B+ or A paint. they will always break when shot at a person and they will the always hit if aimed right, but they do wipe off easy so people can cheat by wiping it off if the ref doesnt catch it but other than the breaks in the barrel the occassional egg shaped ball and easy wipe away, it is awsome paint.
i recommend this product if u can't get smoking dragons but if u can get PWI smoking Dragons, get them. but other then that they are great great balls.

Seems to work great in all the barrels i've seen it shot through
Thick and Bright Fill
Blue one's are hard to see when shot.
Normally i shoot Worr Rec balls at my local field, but this past weekend they had a huge senario game and the field paint of the day was Draxxus Midnight.
I was a little aprehensive at first as I am quite happy with and used to my Worr Rec, but since i had to use it i figured i'd make the best of it.
Of the 3 colors they had (Green shell Aqua fill, Blue Shell Purple Fill, Purple Shell Yellow Fill) i chose the Blue Shell Purple fill.
The paint flew striaght as an arrow and i didn't have a single break on me the whole day. This never happens to me, i usually have at least a few break, and a couple corkscrew on me.
The fill was nice and thick, there's no way anyone is getting away with wiping this stuff.
The only problem i encountered with this stuff, was that when i was shooting it it was very hard to see where it was going, it was almost as if it was invisible paint. When i shoot Worr Rec i shoot pink shell and fill, so i'm used to seeing where my shots are flying so i can correct my aim, i was having a hard time doing it with this paint.
Fly's great, think fill, just wish i could see it in transit to my target better.
A 2002 autococker vert. feed with Hinge trigger. CI on off adapter with a pure energy 68/4500. Shocktech front block kit and suppa fly bolt.Dye ultralight With a revolution 2 hopper. Yes I do like to brag about my gun. My friend has the same gun only mine is better.
I asked my paintball supplier what is the best for a dye ultralite and he strongly urged me to by some midnight.
Nice bright color shoots straight. doesnt break in my barrel or in my hopper made by draxxus. `Awsome to mess around with it.Breaks easily (ON PEOPLE).
Nothing at all and I have been using this product for awhile.
Exelent product to use I dont know why all these people are whining about this product. They probably were throwing it around before they used it or there some newbies that are lying about there expierience and picked up some of this used paint off the ground and used it.
CHEAP, ACCURATE AND CONSISTENT QUALITY..ALSO WORK WELL WITH MY GUN SET UP...
STARTED OUT USING PMI PREMIUMS AND NELSON GOLD BALLS, WHICH ARE IN THE SAME PRICE RANGE, BUT ONCE I TRIED THE MIDNIGHTS I NEVER WENT BACK TO THE OTHERS....WE PLAY STRICTLY WOODS BALL HERE WHERE I LIVE IN PENNSYLVANIA AND THEY PREFORM GREAT IN ALL CONDITIONS....I USED THEM ALL WINTER AT BELOW FREEZING TEMPS AS LOW AS 5* AND THEY STILL PREFORMED WELL......
A GREAT BALL AT A GOOD PRICE AND CONSISTENT QUALITY
Custom Pro Basic (drop forward, double trigger, 11" Werks barrel)
HPA 50 ci Worrgame Tank
Any that fit paint size ( .687-.690)
But of course there are better barrels out there...
These are the first paintballs that I really take the time to check out. What I mean is that I took the time to test them to be able to gauge their strengths and weaknesses.
SOLID SHELL: this a good and bad thing. I have never opened a box and found one broken in a bag (5 boxes total). Never had one brake in my pods during a game or transportation. Never broke one in my hopper.
But this is the "bad" side: I've been hit about five times where the balls didn't break. I'd say it was at about 50-60' and I was wearing a turtle neck and a t-shirt. I admit we didn't check the velocity on our markers but I doubt it had a major impact.
THICK FILL: when it's on you, you know. This fill will resist even the most fervent wipers.
WASHES EASY: no residue whatsoever after washing
CHEAP: 30-35$US on most sites, minus the shipping of course.
I just wanted to say that we ( my group) shot about 8000 balls and had 3-5 breaks. All with stock barrels ( spyder extra, pilot, and fenix plus tippman werks). One has a J&J ceramics and no breaks yet.
For the price, I feel that this paint is really the best. I'm a rec player and I don't see what I would need more from a paintball to make me spend more. My rating is based on a quality to price ratio.
The fills just right thick enough so they can't wipe but thin enough so if you get hit you don't have to spend 5min cleaning it off. And almost always breaks on your opponet. Ive had no breaks yet with this
None really this is my favortie paint out of the one's ive tried.
Very good product and it's nice and cheap. I give it a nine since i havent tried some other paint like the all stars or slam and there suppose to be pretty good.
Liquid Blue Dark Angel G7 Fly with 68.91 cal lucky 15 barrel, orbium 3 barrel kit, tado board, vlocity hopper, and CP rail. in addition, i will soon be getting a custom internal LPR from STD industries
Tippmann A-5 (for rec ball) With starfire front bolt, red aluminum power tube, polished internals, improved sights, Flatline, and e-grip
a .91 will work just fine, my lucky 15 has done well with it.
Good PTB match
I've used midnights for quite awhile now, and other than a bounce or two, i really have no problems. this paint is above average (the average being nelsplat, or something like that) but not quite above average enough to be a tourney paint.
Both my Flatline and my Lucky have been fed midnights, and i have never broken one in my angel, and only a few in my Flatline. The fill is nice and thick, and it has great coverage on the target, so it's very hard to wipe.
Overall, this is a very good paint for the price. i have never had any problems with dimples or poor accuracy. ultimately, i would say that this paint would be great for recball because of the low price, but it is not quite tourney grade, but that doesn't stop me from loving this stuff.

Doesn't break in gun
Good bore size
cheap for the quality
i have been using this paint for a while now and i buy it and sell it to my friends too, we just use this paint for rec playing. and i have found it to be great for woods ball and speed ball too, but i think this is the paint to buy if your gonna play rec a lot and its relatively cheap compared to some.
i would recomend this to anyone who owns a boomstick, the bore sizes match up almost perfectly and it is very accurate. this is also cheap for the money and great rec paint
Diablo Mongoose LCD, 12 volt revy, 47 ci 3000 psi crossfire tank, 18 in. knockout barrel
Spyder Sonix, VL 200, 12 oz. Co2
Knockout, Progressive, Whisper, Boomstick, so on.
breaks on target not in barrel
Its got all the newbs saying its bad
I read all the reveiws and the easiest way to tell the newbs from the real players is the newbs call this paint bad. They probably just pick it up off the ground and use it. Ive gone through nearly 5 cases and i have'nt had a problem. Out of 5 cases i havent had any break in the barrel so the newbs need to learn about ported barrels and bore sizes
(This paint is .689).
Buy this paint if your using a halfway decent gun. If your using a basic gun get basic paint. Its at a great price

PMI Evils- some of the best paint out there
PMI Marballizers- Insanely Good, but they hurt
Alot of other paint
2003 WGP VF Autococker- Crossfire 48/3000- Dead On Pro Blade with On/Off- Racegun Trigger Frame
Any Kit is good
Probably Dye Boomy or UL
You can see the fill really well
It's shaped like an egg
I was out one fine afternoon at one of my local paintball fields, and they were only selling Draxxus Midnight. I decided to give it a try. I'm on the field, and right when I get to my bunker, I have an open shot on someone. I open up, and the paint goes everywhere, but where I wanted it to.
Strengths - It's really cheap paint. Even if you buy it at a field
I think the best part about this paint, thought, is that when you hit someone, you know it. Even when they try to wipe, it will stay on there, and they'll get in trouble for wiping.
Weaknesses- It curves. See opening rant for details.
It's shaped kinda like an egg. That's probably (most likely) the reason for the curves, but it's still annoying.
If you can, try and spend the extra 10 bucks to get better paint, but this is ok. It's not nearly as bad as Severe Atmosphere or Brass Eagle Afterburner.
