Well I used my stock .693 eclipse shaft barrel. The balls seemed to be a little bit smaller then my barrel. Just paint to bore match and your set.
Price. $40 is nice!
No dimples AT ALL.
Bright thick fill.
None. This paint shot great all day.
I bought a case of it one day. I had never heard anything about the paint and wanted to test something new out. I bought the case and opened the box and the paint looked great! Opened a bag and there were no dimples at all. The shell was nice and thin. Thick bright fill. I was very pleased. It shoot amazing through my ego all day long. No chops or anything. Flew straight as a arrow.
Empire really has out done themselves here. For $40, these paintballs simply can not be beat! I am going to buy these over x-ball bronze and save the $5 from now on. Great paint and if you can find some near you I definatly recomened picking up some and testing it out! Please rate this if I helped you.
Bright fill/ colors
break on impact
They tend to get dimples after a while, but doesn't all paint?
My team went to a local feild for team practice. This was the only paint being offered. It was about 60$ a case which is a little expensive, but when is paint not expensive? This paint had a nice bright fill, which was good because it showed up well on peoples jeresys.
These paintballs flew strait, and nice. I was shooting ropes all day.
I only had one break, which was my guns fault. I was really low on air.
By then end of the day they started to get dimples but they still shot great.
These are pretty good paintballs, i recommend these to anyone who wants to shoot strait, nice ropes all day long.
Heavy Metal: (not consistent breaks) (poor-ok flight/accuracy). don't compare
Zap: pure garbage, squeeze them and they look like small junoir mints. Awfull don't compare
Diablo Nightmares: I had a good batch that flew great and break with quater sized splat My cousins got a bad batch that where stuck together flew awfull and broke good. Iffy not as good
Pmi Premium: ok accuracy, not as good
Diablo Inferno : ok-good accuracy , quater splat. not as good
Empire Engage: best I've used Good accuracy quater splat atleast.
A5 - Tippmann
Palmer stabalizer in MP-Mag (from special ops paintball)
Stiffi 14" barrel
JCS Wire stock with rear velocity adjuster
JCS Gold Power Tube
Lapco offset sight rail
JCS 3" weaver rail
EO-Tech Holosight (I have real guns I use this on it rocks)
I've been using Hammerhead with fins and a stiffi .691 The Stiffi is best.
-The shell is stiff and cracks well
-thick slimey fill
-aren't *PERFECTLY* round but close.
- Best accuracy of what I've used.
-always Breaks as long as you don't range it too far out.
-The shell is stiff and cracks (like an egg i guess)
-the balls are consitently round . very small seam that is slightly dented inward all the way around. smaller seam than others and not a flat seam like some I've used.
-thick slimey fill, with atleast a quarter sized splat.
the dent on the seam is about .003-.009 (I think) to .009- .015 (my cousin thinks) inward, I'ld prefer an unnoticable seam. This is not measured just a guess from my minimum thought to my cousins max.
I assume that the fact it dents in slightly affects flight somewhat .
don't let the seam dent scare you out of getting this paint you should try it. especially if your using the other paints I listed.
They are round but not perfectly round.
I've never had them break in my barrel or chop I use an A-5.
My cousin C. breaks them in his Gameface Recon occasionally.(more often when he uses the stock barrel) ( I blame the gun and hopper)
and my cousin E. breaks them in his phantom only when he loads more than 1 in his barrel. ( operater error or purpose)
oh It's about $45 where I buy it.
I like it best out of what I have used. Cracks always when within range. good accuracy.
I'm gonna try more paints soon but the stores around here don't carry a wide variety.
I give it a 9 cause nothing is perfect and I was able to pin point some faults.
9 out of 10

Midnight-The same as this paint, but had a bad fill.
Marbs-Better, but not by much
Uhm, if I knew the size of the red detent ring in my Phantom, that's about the size of this paint, give or take .001.
Breaks on target
Smells like a carrot? Good thing I'm not getting shot.
Alright, if you read the similar products section in my review, you will see I haven't had a good history of picking good paint. It's always been too small, oily, sucky fill, too hard of a shell, or too inconsistently sized, and for the price I was paying for those paints I was getting angry. So since I buy paint in bags, not cases as that would be a waste for me, my shop had Heat or this. I didn't like Heat, so I took a risk buying this. I'm glad I took this risk. It breaks, a lot. Not in the gun, or the barrel, but on the target. It's accurate, although almost anything is accurate in my gun. It cured my inconsistency problems I was having. The fill is bright orange, and pretty thick, but smells like a carrot which is disgusting, good thing I'm not getting shot by it. It's fairly cheap at my shop too for $16 a bag of it.
Need a cheap good paintball? Get this! I'm done dealing with DXS and Diablo's crap, they have failed to deliver, I am never looking back after this.
Tippmann 98 custom ACT
16" 32 degrees night stick barrel
not sure only used the 16" night stick and it worked well
broke at a distance
2 Breaks out of 1000
I bought it at the field i played at (Splat Tag in Hudson WI) for $50 a case. Me and 2 friends shared 2 cases, about 1000 each. In that i had 1 mabey 2 barrel breaks (2nd due to the first one's residue). It was fairly accurate with my barrel. i could hit a 4" tree at 150' after the second shot then repeatedly after that.
Overall i thought it was very good compared to the other pain i have used (which isn't saying much since it is all "walmart paint") I would recommend it i believe it is worth the $50 a case which i thought was reasonable for field paint. Because i am cheap it would have been nice if it was cheaper, but the real reason was the 1/2 breaks which i thought was an acceptable amount but could hurt you if it was the one shot you counted on. really deserves a 9.75
2k5 timmy, halo with rip, 68/45 crossfire tank, empire react pants, dye c5 jersey, dye i3 blue goggles
um, i used a timmy barrel which overall worked out pretty well. accurate was the key
Not that expensive
Broke well close range
Don't break well of breaks
White paint so not always easy to see
This paint overall was a pretty good paint. This isn't the kind first timers should be using. It is about at an amateur to rookie paint. The first time i used it was for a science project and it concluded that it was accurate, didn't splat too well far away, but it did well up close so forwards might want to take note of that.
I would say use this at a half-way experienced tournament or when you are proving yourself to friends,other than that, it would be wasting money
I bought a case of these for $60 which I guess is okay even though I got kind of ripped off. I got Green/Pink shells and green fill. The green was bright and I could see it when I hit a target which made me happy. There could be more fill like Anarchy has in there paintballs. I did not get a single chop out of 2000 and I did not get any bounces. These paintballs are very good and worth the money to get them
-People might get mad when you keep hitting them dead on.
I used this paint for the first time today. It worked extremely well with my a-5. It was very accurate, even though i didnt have a perfect barrel-paint bore match. I didnt have any chops, and i was shooting very fast. The fill is hard to wipe, and it's thick, but not too thick.
Excellent paint. What i will be using for a long time to come.
