JJ ceramic Barrel
20oz (co2 i know but i dont care)
Shelf life is increadible
Bouncy alot, of bounce
Okay my local field uses these as a rental paint (he gets em for free from his insurance company) yes they are the premium version..
Anyway's they are glossy but not greasy at all, they look like blaze... His are yellow and blue, and shoot great, especially the fact some i tested first game was 2004 from the fall... they have no dimples, and are generally round, shell seems are minimal and its cheep if you buy online. I had no breaks using my freak, and non using my lapco, however i did experiance 3 bounces, i shot all day and freaked out 3 times for someone cheating.... Oops, okay also i got shot 8 times and all eight bounced, woodsball and longballin (im talkin long ballin here not pansy 80' im talkin like 190-200+ft) so i guess any paint would bounce alot.
Very good if you play once a month, because your stash will not go bad for a long time, thus you can buy in bulk. impressed by quality, and accuracy, if you dont care about the occasional bounce (tournament players like me hate bouncers) then get it! Speaking for you which would you rather have, 1 or 2 bounces (potential outs...Potential because other balls may bounce in the situation too) or crappy shelf life, and breaks in barrel? I give it an 8.78 very good for playin woods
rp premium, proball, zap, draxxus midnight and so on and so on
tippman a5 expansion chamber shocktech bolt flatline egrip, and a saw stock
flatline I bought these to specificaly use in my flatline
I have never broken a ball in my flatline or anywhere else.
Some may bounce, but keep in mind with a flatline your more likely to bounce.
I bought these because of reviews I read here. They were right I dont know about other guns or whatever, but if you have an a5 with a flatline search for good paint no more. I will never run any other paint through my flatline. Half way through one day of use i switched back to proballs, and blew 3 in the barrel out of 25. I used a 1000 core premium rounds that day, and didnt break one.

Breaks on enemys and not inside your gun
Cheap (mid price range)
Sucks for the people that get hit cuz they always break!!!!
This is some good quality paint for the price that you pay. I payed 45 a case for it at paintball online's Tualitian shop in oregon. The green shell and fill combo is sweet. Hard to see coming and the fill is so damn bright. Me and my friend were seeing exactly how perfect "brittle" the core paint is. His paint bounced off the board when he threw it at it, and the core blew up with the lightest toss.
COME ON WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY ITS GOOD PAINT BUY IT
Its cheap and high quality what else can you ask for
Flatline barrel (APEX coming soon!)
JCS Combat Folding Stock
Pure Energy coiled high-pressure remote w/ on-off
20 oz CO2
Well, I've used them in the A5 stock barrel, A5 Flatline, and Piranha stock barrel without too many problems.
Doesn't break in-gun
Breaks OK on-target
None that I've found
Well, not too much to say here. It shoots straight, it's cheap, ($45/case) and it seems to work well in all my guns. I really haven't had any problems with it. It does break when I really rip on my Piranha, but I think that's the gun's fault. (gotta love cheap electros) My A5 hardly ever breaks it.
Shelf life seems to be extremely good. I play about once a month, and my current case has lasted me for about 4 months now.
It's good paint. It's what I use, and it works great. Buy it.

Any barrel but smart parts proggressive works real good.
Real cheap, rarely breaks, accurate,
Fill isnt very bright, sometimes wont break, not many colors
Me and my cousin always buy these at "Super" Dunhams. They are really a good deal. We shoot these balls alot and they are just as good as any other ball. With my gun they rarely break and in my cousins Tippmann 98 (smart parts progressive barre) they have broken maybe 10 in 8000 balls. Anytime we play in the winter and we will be wearing coats occasionally they may not brake on you.
Very good paintball. Buy these if your playing any type of game. Unless you have lots of cash to spend then buy better ones.

Any barrel, smart parts progressive, flatline, freak
-Bright, thick fill
-Don't break in gun
-Break on people
-Hard to find
I have used the paint in my stock barrel and my friends progressive and his flatline. It is probably the best paint I have used. It particularly out performed everything else in the flatline (first time I saw a flatline shoot accurately) actually I was amazed, the flatline performed very well with this paint and shot farther than we cold see without dropping, we were able to hit a two foot diameter tree consistently at about 150-200 feet. I would definitely recommend this paint to anyone especially for flatlines because it is an awesome paint to boar match.
Update: I use my .693 insert to shoot the paint in general
If you have a flatline you should definitely try some but it is hard to find
remember it is a medium size paint .688-.691 so it fits stock barrels well along with the flatline and most other one piece barrels

Blue Streek.I Balz, Zap, and Scorch.The Cores are better in accuracy.
I have a VL Maxis and a 16in.Progressive barrel on it.
I dont know
They Shoot Good, most of them are nice and round
In dark places you can't see where they shoot.
They are a great deal. They shoot in the same place consistently but they chop terribly in my maxis but they dont in my friends' triad or 98 custom. i think i just have bad luck. but i recomend these painttballs because the price is right and theyr good quality
They are a great deal for the price.

Black to red dragun TES
Red flame drop forward
WGP triple threat barrel system
72ci/3000psi PMI nitro tank
experiment some, i dont know the size of the paint
color fill is bright and thick and the price is cheap
the shell is too thick
This paint is ok because you know when you hit someone and its hard to wipe off, but if your shooting fast then it starts to break in your barrel because the shell is hard. I still get it for pratice though cause it doesnt put holes in my wallet.
this paint is good for practice but nothing else, and its really cheap. I would have given it a 6.5 but there is none so i rounded up.
2k2 Vision impulse
7 piece Empire barrel kit
Dye sticky grip
system x drop w/ on/off
S.P. Delrin bolt
macro-line set up
twist tight feed neck
3000 psi air
Nice thick shell (not too thick) Thick fill, Consitant shape, no dimples, PRICE
No White fill
This paint is excellent, I have not broken one ball of the 3 cases I have put through my gun. The shell is thick but brittle the fill is nice and thick. For the price this is the best apint I have ever used, and I have used many many brands
GET THIS PAINT IF YOU CAN FIND IT. THE QUALITY IS EXCELLENT. THE PRICE IS EVEN BETTER.

not many! very cheap for 2000 i can them for aroung 35$
VERY thin shell
very thin shell like i siad. if you drop these ball on carpit from about 8 inch they will break now that to me is to thin of a shell. oh and also if you have you velocity up high they will break in the barrel! I was playing a game once with them and they prolly borke 6 or 8 differant times and i had to clean my barrel out 6 or 8 time and now thats 6 or 8 times to many!
5/10 because so cheap for so many but to thin of shell!
