A-5 with an Apex barrel.
Spider Pilot with progressive barrel.
Way too many chops, many arrived broken in bag, terrible shell, not a good fill.
When I received these paintballs I was excited to use them. Unfortunately I was unable to because each bag of 500 had at least 1 inch of paint in the bottom from so many broken paintballs. After cleaning each individual ball off I tried them in my paintball gun. first paintball chopped and splattered up into my hopper. After cleaning off every single ball again and my hopper I tried once more. I shot one paintball then the next chopped. I let several friends try and each had similar results.
You might as well throw your money away rater than waste it on this paint. There are much better paintballs out there which cost only a little more.
It could have been a very bad batch I received or maybe they were just old. Nevertheless I don't plan on using these paintballs ever again. The low price does not justify just how bad these paintballs truly are. These get a 2 because they are better than shooting nothing at all. Even if they never really make it out of your barrel.
You might as well throw these at your opponents. You would have better results.
Broke in my chamber might work with a low pressure gun
They were very cheap and arrived with no breaks in any of the bags but that is where the good ended When i used them it was like shooting a paint shotgun if yuou get my drift and required constant squegeeing i eventually just went and bought some other paintballs from a freind. I think you might even be better off using wild streak maybe just maybe.
You can try it with a low pressure gun if wou want but i think all these paintballs are good for is giving to the opposing team. I give a 3 out of 10 because of the cheapness and the fact that none were broken in the bags.
I haven't had any trouble with any barrel but use a .691 normally.
Price, break on target.
Accuracy 8 out of 10 go straight.
I bought these to see if some of the cheaper paints were usable. This paint is not tournament quality and you should not expect it for $25. It does compare very favorably with Torks and is much better than Shrapnel. On drop tests it breaks consistently from 4 feet. It may be a little brittle from some peoples liking. The advantage is it breaks on target no bounces. I have used 3 cases so far and have had 1 bag in each case with a broken ball. It is a pain to clean the whole bag but once again it is a money saver. They work fine in my Ion at full auto and my A5. My brother can not use them in his Spyder TLX as they break constantly, don't know why. If your parent such as me who plays PB with his sons and has to supply paint then you can't go wrong with these. The price is great and the performance is decent.
This paint has the best price/performance ratio of any paint around and I have tried a lot of different ones looking for decent paint at a good price. It performs as well as Torks and much better than Shrapnel. It is a step below your premium paints like Evil and Chronic but that is expected and a little below Xball gold or RPS premium. If you aren't looking for premium paint at a $25 price point then you will be very happy with these. The 9 rating is given with that in mind. The only drawback is the accuracy.

Breaks on target
I found these for $24.95 a case (2000) and thought I have to try them. I was thinking they would arrive and be like Core paintballs...slimy, stuck together half of them broken in the bag. But, to my surprise, only one of the 4 bags had a broken ball in it and it wasn' t too bad. The balls reminded me alot of big balls by RPS, but the fill was better and they covered better.
They are large, like Big balls, so you may have problems with smaller bore barrels...especially in cold weather. The shell was good, the fill was a bit too thick, but covered well. They were messy when they broke in the barrel...it's hard to play through a break.
The biggest negative was poor accuracy...especially at longer distances. Like Big Balls, they tend to really lose accuracy at longer distances. At shorter distances, they weren't bad...maybe one out of 10 that just flies off into nowhere.
Not a great paint...but you can't do better for the price. If you like RPS Big Balls, you'll love these and save a few bucks in the process. But I rate hard on accuracy so I can only give them a 5.
6 out of 10
