My first experience with this paint was at the local paintball field that is a "field paint only" park. This was the only paint they offered. As far as lower end paint goes this is better than some of the stuff you can get at wal mart (not better than scorch though). The majority of the balls have deformities that cause them to curve dramatically. Also you should pray you dont chop a ball because the fill in the balls is like elmers glue which makes it almost impossible to clean well enough on the field to prevent further malfunctions.
In conclusion, my experience with these balls has not been favorable in the least. they are not what you want to have to depend on during a game, and a pain if you chop one. If you are looking for cheap paint then head to your local wal mart and pick up some gameface scorch. Just remember to look them over before you buy them since at big warehouses like that they can sometimes sit on the shelf for a while.
I've used just about every brand of paint out there.

I had bought these paintballs because the store I usually by paint from was out of X-ball and 32*. Well let me just say these were some of the worst paintballs I have ever used. To start with this paint has horrible accuracy even with a good paint to barrel bore match and a normal velocity. Another problem is the shells of Blackout paint is way to brittle. I was having breaks everywhere. I had broken paint in my loader, barrel and breech and I have almost never broken paint in my gun or loader. The last problem I had with this paint was with bouncing. I would shoot a person I don't know how many times and even with a normal velocity I would have a million bounces. The only good thing about this paint is the paint fill isn't too bad but other than that this paint is just horrible.
As I said this is some of the worst paint I have ever used. I would never buy Blackout or any Blue Arch paint ever again.

I wasn't sure about this paint when my friend told me to get it b/c I never heard of it but he showed me how pasty the filling was so I bought some. Bought a case, went out played and it shot pretty accurate I gotta say. The Shell is bright and the fill as well. This thing is so bright, you can see it explode on your opponent! They are as bright orange as Hellfire's and every shot I took broke on the air bunkers. I'm going to buy this paint from my field everytime I go there now. Works great and does it's job well!
I would definately recommend this paint. It's everything you would look for in paint. Bright, Kinda brittle, and bright thick filling
10 out of 10

I'm writing this kind of late since I used this paint almost a week ago but I'll write about my experience with Blue Arc Blackout. When I first opened the box I liked the look of the paint I mean it looked pretty consistant in size and shape. When I got to the field I loaded the paint in my loader and checked the paint to barrel bore size to see if I had a good fit and I did. At this point I was feeling pretty confident about this paint. I thought to myself that maybe Blue Arc isn't as bad as people make it seem..well that didn't last very long. I had a decent amount of barrel break while shooting fast. I also had horrible accuracy even with a decent paint to barrel bore match. Another problem I had was with bouncing. I would hit a person straight on a good number of times and they would all bounce. This paint only gets a rating of 5 because its nothing more then average.
If your looking for paint that is cheap then get this but remeber you get what you pay for. Like I said above its nothing more then average. Expect alot of problems with bouncing, barrel breaking, and horrible accuracy even when you have a good paint to barrel bore match.
