Seems to shoot well with the A5 stock barrel, also no big problems with the Dye Xcel
- Bright Fill
- Accuracy not too bad
- LOTS of breaks
- Some chops
- Weak shell
Our team has used this paint for quite some time now, but we just stepped off it because some of us were having more barrel-breaks than normal shots. This is pretty cheap paint, we were able to purchase it for 35 euro's per case. The fill is pretty ok, either yellow-green or orange. If this paint happens to shoot OK with your barrel, you'll be able to pull of some decent accuracy, but this doesn't happen to often. We have shot this paint with these barrels:
98 Stock barrel - pretty ok, accuracy is terrible even with best paint...
Dye Xcel - worked pretty ok, only 1-2 breaks every hopper..
98 Flatline - terrible, 10-20 breaks every hopper, accuracy was't really spectacular
Tippmann Werks - reasonable, 5 breaks every hopper
A5 Stock barrel - ok, barrel is worthless anyway
Progressive - Absolutly worthless, 20+ breaks per hopper
Armson Stealth - accuracy was ok, just 15 breaks on every 200
A5 Flatline - Again, total crap with 20 breaks on every hopper
Not only were there many barrel-breaks, the chance of having contaminated paint in the case was 95-99%. There also was a fair amount of pod-breaks, even if they were filled properly. Also, there were some chops (mostly with the 98 Customs) which provide some nasty paint all over yout internals. Most of the paint was pretty round, but there have been some cases which had dimples on most balls, which is when you'll have to say goodbye to your accuracy (if you had any)
Amount of breaks makes for a total mess, perhaps we just always had bad badges or the store just stored them wrong, but this paint is among the worst I've ever shot. Therefor it deserves a 3, since it does perform pretty OK with some of the stock barrels and the Dye Xcel.
03' VF cocker, STO Bolt, Ergo reg, Bob Long front block, Halo B hopper Worr Blade on it's way!!
Does not break in the marker
Flys very straight
round shape throughout the entire case
Not a lot........ Fill could be a little thicker
The colors are great. The shell is pretty tough so it won't break in your gun but it does break on impact Awesome paint for the money!!!! But the fill is a little thin. ............. Can't give it a 10.
That's all I have to say about this paint but it says I need to put more words so here they are!!!
I will buy this paint for rec ball would not recommend for tournament play.
I have shot a at least a case of every paint worth shooting
soda can mod
anything with .683 or .684 barrel size
Break on target
do not chop
Fill is not thick enough for tourney play.
But that's it
I have used these paintballs religously for 3 months now. About 12 cases. I must say these paintball are amazing! Fore the price 42.50 a case they cannot be beat. They always break on target. I droped them on gravel from about 4 feet and every one broke. I have never had a chop in my matrix or my impulse. I also shot them for a day out of a tippman 98 and the results were excelent.
When you get these paintballs you will see that none of them have any dimples whatso ever and upon further testing the bore size only varries by about .001. With my matrix with a .683 stiffi barrel i hit a paper plate on a tree 90 feet away 24/25 times. They are very consistent. I would reccomend these for any sort of rec play or tourney practice. For tourneys though stick to all-star because they have better fill. My team's consensis is that this stuff shoots just as well as all-starwithout the 56.50 price tag.
Oh and the prems and the basic are about the same in quality in the 2 cases of basic i have bout there were 5 miss shaped but undimples balls. Unlike the prems which were all perfectly round!
BUY THIS PAINT!!!
I dont like to give tens unless i realy believe in a product. This is one product that has earned my repect. BY IT NOW!! Get the prems or the basic they are both great
Pointblank, CORE, Diablo Blaze, various Zap stuff, the usual cheap items for the weekends
The teardrop worked fine with it, so any medium bore should work with this paint.
-very flourescent fill
-majority defect free
-fill a little thin
-the dimple effect
So the basic strong points are good fill, good shell, good price. The paint works fine, and i had no barrel breaks (until I had a co2 leak, but thats not the paint's fault). The only weaknesses to this paint is that sometimes the fill is not complete, (air inside the paintball) and this cause dimples to form when the paint is exposed to cold air (60 or less, about) because of the contraction. While this only occurs in about 1/20th of the paintballs, its still a bit annoying. Even with dimples, this paint still doesnt break in the barrel.
Outstanding for its price (pbgear $37- CHEAP for pretty good quality)
Good shape, Small seam, Shell will break on target and not in the barrel
Filling is a little thin, but bright.
I definitaly gotta say this paint is worth the money and more. It has a bore size of .684 and the seam isn't too bad at all. They shoot very straight and will definitaly break on the target. I did a few drop tests and I definitaly was impressed. I will be buying these balls again in the future most definitaly Great price, great paint, real good buy.
I'm gonna have to say that the shells on these balls come pretty close to the All-stars, but the filling does need to be a little thicker and maybe perhaps a little brighter.
I'm only giving it a 9 because of the fill, but other than that its good shtuff!
Great Paint for rec-play and small time tourney's.

Cheap for the quality, No barrel breaks, Very accurate Flight path
I normally use RPS all-stars, a premium paint that i just love. I bought these hoping to cut some $$$ off my paint costs. I split a case with my buddies and we were all very impressed. First: they had great accuracy that was every bit as good as the All-Stars. No lopsided balls, huge seams, or other manufacturing defects. Their fill was very bright! (I only used the Green but i assume their colors are all very similar) I knew immediately when one broke on an opponent. (They also worked with the flatline barrel)
At EXTREME range i noticed that i would get a few more "bounces" but when firing at targets at realistic ranges i had no problems.
A Great Paintball at an even better price. I would definitely reccomend this ball for Tournament or Rec play.

Nitro Duck 47/3000
Phat Barrel Kit (7 Piece)
32 Degrees Flame Drop in Red
Very round, very flourescent, nice shell, inexpensive
Smaller than my Omen's stock barrel.
Very round. Very flourescent, refs won't miss this stuff! Inexpensive! a;lkdjf ;lkdsjf ;lskdfj ;lsdk ;lskdjf ;lsdkjf ;;lskdjf;l ;laskdjf ;lsadkjf;alskdjf ; ;alsdkjf jas;; ioqewrnxc,j ioej aie ia;dl oiwe a sa;lai oa; dk woa eu al;sdna; sdoeoi jas wo id ke os sl dk die os k o wkl ow as oid ei k klsa o ke nadj kaj ei jn iodfnekl ,msdanfoi lej; m,x n
Diablo Blaze, RP Marbilizer, RP Allstars. These were just as good as any I've used, and they sure cost a lot less.
Pirhana, Teardrop barrell 12", N2
Had great results with my Teardrop. Probably any other medium bore barrel.
Nice thick fill without any breaks.
I didn't experience any.
Great paintballs at a great price. They were $37/case at Action Village. I experienced no barrel breaks shooting 2 cases. They were very accurate at a long distance. I only hope they will stay available. I would stock up on these and store them in a cooler. I feel these paintballs compared very well against the more expensive premium paints.
Buy these. They perform as well as any I've tried. They are very resonably priced.
Tippmann 98 Custom w/e-bolt and low pressure kit and a 13" Armson Stelth barrel, also used 12" 32-Degrees nightstick barrel
Any properly sized barrel
Good bright fill, Good consistency/accuracy.
Some of the best paint (for the $35-45 price range) I have ever used. Shoots straight, breaks on contact not in barrel. For the price you can't beat it. Definitely one of my favorites. Only bought 2 cases but will definitely buy more when the weather warms up (unsure of cold weather performance, and after a bad cold weather experience with Big Balls, don't want to try it).
If you are looking for a good quality paint for woods ball or senario play you can't beat it.

Tastes like chicken
Did I mention cheap?
Havent had any problems with it other than the oil its shipped in.
A friends field starting using this and I am pretty happy he did. It seems to work well for everyone there using it, so its barrel friendly,and pretty good all around. I was told its shipped in vegetable oil which certainly seems to keep it fresh, but it seems to go away by the time you use it. I have gotten one bag that was still a little oily but on the flip side the shelf life seems to be longer. Make sure that its dry or you may have minor issues with dust and dirt sticking to surfaces the paint touches if you dont. Other than that,and that has only happened once, its great.
