Products Used:
Brass Eagle, RPS Superswirl, VL J-balls, JT Elite - ALL ARE CRAP!
Diablo Dusk, RPS Marbelizer, RPS All-Star - PRETTY GOOD!
JT Maxim 1 (original), PMI Evil - THE BEST!!!
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98C - GTA X-chamber, Lapco Directfeed, ACI Elbow, 16" Smartparts 2001 All American, Psycho-Ballistics Rocket Cocker, Psycho-Ballistics Double Trigger, Maddman Springs, Ricochet AK, ACI remote, Reds 4+1 Comfort Pack, V-force Morph.
Recommended
Barrels:
Any medium bore aftermarket barrel of good quality - Dye, Smartparts, etc.
Strengths: Thick, bright, fill.
Weaknesses: Innacurate and inconsistent velocity. Both of these are the result of a poor seam design.
Review: These Maxim 2's are not even in the same ballpark with the original Maxim. These have a completely different design and it is very misleading for JT/BE to market them with the Maxim name.
They have a completely different coating. It is glossy and a little sticky like varnish. The orginal Maxim's had a super slippery, super dry, plastic like coating. Almost like they had been dipped in alcohol. They were sweet.
The original Maxims were almost totally seamless so they flew incredibly straight, alot like current PMI Evils. But the new Maxim2's have horrible seams. It's not that the seam sticks out, like on Brass Eagles. It's that they stick in, like a deep crevice running all the way around the ball. There are two major problems that this "seam crevice" causes. First, it causes the ball to curve in flight almost as bad as it would if it had protuding seams. Second, since the seam is a crevice, the ball has a smaller diameter when measured seam to seam. This means that depending on the orientation of the ball in your barrel you may have a good barrel to ball match, or you may have a very loose barrel to ball match - FROM SHOT TO SHOT!! With the loose match some of your gas blows by the sides of the ball and results in lower velocity. So from shot to shot your velocity and range fluctuates badly. With my 98 custom and all the mods I've done to it I usually only fluctuate plus or minus 5 fps. With the Maxim 2 I was fluctuating at the chrono like 35 or 40 fps. I thought something was wrong with my gun! So I checked it then loaded up some PMI Evils and everything was back to normal - 296, 293, 298 and so on. Then when I played with these crap Maxims one ball would fly like hell then the next would be so noticably slower that I thought I was running out of gas!
Conclusion: Don't waste your money on this stuff. They are not only completely inferior to the original Maxim. They are inferior to most any paint on the market today. I just wish I hadn't bought a whole case. The original Maxims were made for JT by RPS/PMI. But these maxim2's I hear are made by Brass Eagle. I guess I should've listened to the rumors. I'll stick with EVIL thank you.

Review: These paintballs are awful. I bought a fresh case from Warped in town and shot them less than a week later...

Size was all over the place, not true. Broke many in the barrell. I have shot garbage paint that was better than this stuff..

It is not very consistant, too many problems with size. Most fit througha .690 back but then about 15% did not...
Conclusion: At $54. a case, there is better out there. Look a Diablo and Severe, at least you know what your getting, this stuff is garbage...

Barrels:
none, don't use this paint.
Strengths: It is think and bright paint.
Weaknesses: It does not brak and has horrible seams.
Review: I am sorry for the people that like it. I have a small paintball buget. So I tryed out this paint. It is more expensive then other paint and it is just not as good. I have shot people at 30 feet away with my gun firing at 286 fps and I hit them in the visor and the fire rounds of paint just bounced off.
Conclusion: Go for Nel-Splat if you are short on cash, but if your not hit up evil or firestorm. Sorry for the bad rating, but its bad paint.

Barrels:
any kind of barrel... they dont usually break...
Strengths: bright fill, good price, flys good.. most of the time
Weaknesses: not always round... sometimes varys from shot to shot.. but not usually
Review: I really thought that this paint was pretty good... there were some weaknesses but overall it was really worth the 45 bucks a case i payed for it. its like most paint... the better the barrel the better it shoots... i mean i shot it with a phantom stock barrel and i thought that it performed very well... better than the first maxim paint.. which was a little less than good... hehe...
Conclusion: buy this paint... its pretty darn good... unless u have unlimited choice of supply then... go with some better paint

Review: Well I have used this crap for three straight weeks and it breaks in my gun EVERY time.We ordered 4 cases and a friend of mine has the same problem.I switched to Stingers and guess what?No more breaks.I dont mean to berate these balls but for what they charge I feel I got ripped off.I have never used anything with this poor of a performance,even cheap rec paint performed better.To top it all off I hit people and it doesnt break,go figure.

Conclusion: Buy this at your own risk

Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
PAINTBALLS--> Proball, RPS, PowerBall, Diablo, Zap, View Loader, Nelson, JT, PMI. and now regretfully Maxim 2's
Marker Setup: $1,300 low pressure Autococker--> STO body, Benchmark trigger frame, 3-roller trigger sear, ANS hammer kit, AKALMP tornado valve, Palmer micro-rock regulator, STO ram, Shocktech 3-way, Shocktech superfly bolt.
Barrels= AKALMP, Dye, J&J, Powerlyte, Lapco, Taso, and PMI
Recommended
Barrels:
Dye and Powerlyte (believe it or not the "entry" model is the way to go .688 and straight porting)
Strengths: Thick fill.
Weaknesses: Uneven seam, uneven shell, too brittle to operate in anything but low pressure.
Review: I was very excited to hear that JT was still making Maxim paintballs so I had to order some, well folks not all things get better with age. Thanks to Brass Eagle they have ruined another fine product made by JT.

1. The shell is horribly deformed by the seam making the ball hook at range.
2. The measurement of the paint varies from .683 to .694 causing velocity fluctuations as much as 30 fps (measured by micrometer and chronograph)
3. The shell is so brittle that it breaks in your hopper as well as your gun. Unless you run 200 psi or lower.
4. Comes with Brass Eagle’s non-existent customer service.
Conclusion: The only thing good about this paint is the fill and the fact that "JT" is printed on the box, but even that doesn't count for much these days. Brass Eagle gets 2 points for the fill, better luck next year guys.

Marker Setup: Dragun TES black to red fade

14" Dye Ultralite
Recommended
Barrels:
Freak...Ultralight....Boomstick....Empire Kit....Kaner Kit...J&J Ceramic or 2 Piece...anything expensive:)
Strengths: cheap price(cheap quality):P
Weaknesses: horribly accurate....has black in them( see body)...some werent round
Review: I must have been on drugs because I decided to run this paint through my brand new TES. At first the colors were gold and black so my eye did not see them so I couldn't shoot fast otherwise I would chop. They broke in my barrel so I had to battle swab my barrel every few shots. They went all over the place. One would go somewhat straight and one would shoot off to the right. Don't buy these seriously. Get zap...there stil bad but if your budget is that low dont get these anyways.
Conclusion: If you want to squeegee out your barrel every 5 shots then this is the product for you. Get zap or even Brass Eagle( thats sad if I tell you to shoot brass eagle before this)

Zap low-end paint.

Recommended
Barrels:
It isn't huge bored. Mid-bore barrels do best.
Strengths: straight, hard paint!
Weaknesses: A bit skimpy on distance. Price is good, but it gets better.
Review: This is my rec-paint! I'm switching over to a more rec-bally paint, but from reviews, that's a boost in quality. :-x I wouldn't dare to call this terrible. It'll go straight in a decent marker. Don't pop this in a Spyder Compact put it's grouping against a Matrix's. Be realistic. Breaks well, a little bouncy. I wouldn't know about fill, never shot anyone with these and hit! (I'm bad. heh. ) Won't break in your hopper, can't say that for Afterburner. Overall decent rec-paint.
Conclusion: A good rec-ballers paint, but because of price, I'm going elsewhere.

Marker Setup: Spyder Flash LCD, Spyder AMG, Spyder TL+ and I have an Angel Speed soon to come.
Recommended
Barrels:
I only used my Titanium Boomstick, which is probably best.
Strengths: The fill is bright and hard to wipe.
Weaknesses: The seam is this ball's key weakness.
Review: These balls are a disgrace to the Maxim name. The originals were totally seamless and shot great, so I figured the Maxim 2's would be some kind of improvement, but I have been tricked, and at 57.00 a case I was a little P.O'd too! Because the seam on these balls indents instead of sticking out the ball is completely unpredictable. Not only does it not shoot straight, but every ball has it's own velocity because of the indent. Depending on how the ball is chambered it either catches 90% of the air or 20% or 60% causing not only different curves, but different ranges from shot to shot as well. The only good thing I found is in nearly 2000 shots not one broke in my barrel, all of them broke on their target(when they found it), the fill was very bright and wipers became smearers, putting a stop to all of you cheaters out there. AND the paint actually washed out despite it's stubbornness at the field.
Conclusion: Put this balls paint into the original Maxims shell and you have the best paintball ever made.

Double Trigger
12 Oz. C02 Tank
Strengths: Thick,Bright, Break pretty easily
Weaknesses: Sometimes chop... but very rarely
Review: I have been using these paintballs for a little while now and they have never let me down. Except for one time when I bunkered one of my friends and shot him about 5 times and not one of the balls broke.... But that is the only bad experience I have had with these paintballs. If you are looking for a low priced, reliable case of paintballs, get these, they won't disappoint you...
Conclusion: Overall a good paintball, I recommend it if you are looking for something low priced. I don't recommend it for tournaments though, I only use it when im playing with my friends.
