The JB 3000 paintball brings precision engineering to the paintball field. Designed for tournament players who demand the most consistent, highest performance and most accurate paintball on the market today.
The Jumbo Paintball JB 3000 Paintballs are older, so they are not commonly available anymore.
This paint in good because it is very strong. The accuracy is not as good as tork though. I would suggest people with spyders or pirahahas to use this. Also, this is good speed ball paint because of very few breaks. I spent the whole day paintballing without one break. Very good paint for under 40 bucks. A+!
Good breakage- very few bounces
Nice, bright fill
The large size can be problematic
My first encounter with Jumbo was a few weeks ago when a local team player gave me a pod-full after I'd loaned him some paint during a game. I'd never seen it at the shop I go to, but my impression was "Hey, if it's good enough for these guys, I guess I'll give it a try."
I went to the one store in town that sells it (Rocken Paintball in San Marcos, CA) and picked up a case for myself. Benefit #1- it was only $35! For comparison, this shop was asking the usual $55 for Evil, and $60 for Marbs.
I took the paint out with me the following weekend. Since I don't have a ball-sizer, I tried blowing a ball through both my J&J Ceramic barrel and through the stock barrel that came with my EVO. The ball got stuck in the J&J and I had to break it with a stick to get it out. But it went through my stock barrel reasonably well, so I decided to go with that barrel for the day.
Throughout the day the paint performed reasonably well. I had no breaks in the marker, it flew reasonably straight, and what impressed me most was how few bounces I got as compared to other paint in the same price range, such as Rampage / Menace.
The one issue I did have was that on two occasions, a ball got stuck in my hopper's feedneck. The Ricochet has this little film-like sensor that sticks out into the ball path, and that's exactly where a ball got lodged. Shaking the marker up and down a few times caused the ball to drop and everything continued to work normally.
Despite the one minor issue I had with size, the ridiculously low price and consistent on-target breakage are reason enough to keep buying this paint. I'm giving Jumbo an 8. It's obviously not Marb, but in terms of value for the dollar for all but the most fanatical rec-baller it will be hard to beat.
8 out of 10

Broke when supposed to
Stays fresh with the litte freshening bags
Should have been cheaper for how they performed
I told my mom to buy Pointblank and for the same price (40$) she came home with these. There werent tat bad but not that great either. Shells were very brittle and nice but paint flew everywhere all funky. Some shots were nice and accurate then you get some that wizzle all over. Their performance kind of varied by each bag of 500. I used the first bag and they sucked. 2nd was ok and then they got a little better but still had some occasional wobblers.
There were a few barrel breaks but nothing much. Other than those occasional wobblers its not bad.
OK paint for the price but i expected better. Expect to get some good ones and some bad ones. Each bag had different performance
The supplyer of the club that i play at in New Zealand has had many different types of paint but this on stands out over the rest. Very consistant paint, good thick shell (not as hard as killabeez) nice in accuracy and quite hard to wipe. Only problem i have had so far is that we have had one bad batch, a couple of cases were bad and kept breaking but otherwise good.
This paint is pretty good for its price. about 40 bucks for 2000 rounds. But there is a lot of room for improvement.
1) Bounces. This paint did a lot of bouncing and it really pissed me off. Here is a true story...We were playing airball and i was using these paintballs for the 1st time. I had them under my car so they were shaded from the sun. Anyways on a run through i started to fire at a back player as he reloaded we were no more than 30 feet away i had to hit him over 10 times. EVERY SHOT BOUNCED. I went ape to say the least. On more than one occasion id hit ppl of the brake and this paint would bounce.
2) the paint comes in diffrent sizes...its very annoying to have to change your bore size every bag.
1) if the paint broke on someone the fill is pretty thick so its hard to wipe off
2) IF u have the right barrel match then the paint does not brake in your gun
3) for 40 bucks its decent...if you have the right batch
Id say spend 10 bucks more and get a case of proto paint. ummm id prolly use this paint if i had almost no other options. If the paint decides to behave and brake on target then its very good stuff for the price. IF the paint decides to act an ass then its not worth 20 bucks.
i've been through lots of different paintballs. zap torque, stingers, pmi, diablo...... so far the zap jumbo paintballs r the best that i've ever had. and for the price that just makes them that much better. between me and friends we've gone through probably 500 cases. and still have yet to have a bad case. maybe once in a while a bad ball that isn't sealed good but that's about it.
smart parts ion, 14 freak barrel, 68/4500 pure energy, trinity trigger
tippmann 98 custom, 14 proto barrel/ 14 CP barrel
any good barrel. pretty much any barrel wit a nice bore finish. but i like my 2 piece freak barrel cause i have like 5 different ball inserts. so any size ball i can use.
Always round, thick paint so hard to wipe, good seal on the ball
No real weaknesses
Great ball for the price, but gotta have somewhat of a good barrel for these paintballs to be work well for you, don't expect to get a $35 dollar gun at wal-mart and expect to hit someone 30 yards away. So as long as you have a good barrel this paintball should do great for you. Like i said haven't had a bad case yet. Great paintballs
Get ur local paintball store to stock these. You won't regret it.
