The temprature: 64 balmy degrees.
The Gun: Pirahna STS with reg. and stock barrel
The paint: 98 degrees paintballs. one hopper full.
I had my intended victim well within sight. The punk had moved into my position, unaware of me. A grin crept acroos my face. A light trigger pull later, and my "victim" knew exactly where I was- it was easy. Just look for an orange mist, and confetti gelatin floating to the ground. For every shot that whizzed by my head, I returned a shower of liguid paint and shards of shell. *grrrrr!* I squeeged the barrel, dumped the remaining 98 Degrees, loaded up some marbs my friend threw to me, and proceeded to eliminate the punk with two shots... he had grown confident seeing an orange mist fog bank in front of my position.
I learned from my mistake. I dumped 'em, and will never harken it's door again.
a barrel that is not round because neither are the paintballs
they cost me 20 dollars for 1000
I bought them from a guy named Mark
he got them for free I paid him
and adter I told him that he better give me my money back cause he practicly ripped me off.
every sinlgle thing you can think of
they are not even balls they are something else some look like cubes triangles and things that I had never senn before.
They boke in my hopper, in my barrel, a dye excel, they broke in the gun, they also broke bofore they hit my opponent.
do not buy this crap!
learn from ny mistake, even the cheap walmart brass eagle balls are like 10 times better. At least brass eagle makes round paintballs
Tippmann Model 98 Custom - DYE Ultralite 12", DYE Sticky grips, Raised Sight Rail, ADCO Sure Shot Red Dot Sight, 20oz Co2 Bottle... More on their way.
Dont waste your money on a barrel, it wont help you.
Over 3/4s of the balls are either deformed or has dimples in it. The price may be low but its definetly not worth the price. The balls are highly unaccurate. The balls do twirls. go straight down, left, right or up. Never straight. When the ball gets out of the barrel, the wind pushes the flattened parts of the ball causing it to twirl and become unaccurate. The only good reason why to buy these paint balls is to watch the balls do weird things for the sheer joy of entertainment. Really, you should get your friends over and amuse them at the ticks this ball is doing.
Dont buy these paintballs. Their not worth your money, I dont care about what the other guy said, they dont work well with tippmanns or any other gun. Dont buy this gun.
Lapco BigShot 8"
BSA Red Dot 30 38
16oz CO2 Chrom molly
None - stay away from these balls.
None. Low price does not justify buying this crap.
Breaks in the barrel all the time
Can not fly straight
These paintballs ruined my field day.
Every 20-30 th breaks in the barrel of my A-5 with Lapco 8". Never happened before to me (I fired thousands of Draxxus paintballs with this gun). I tried adjusting the speed and lowered to 270-260. It helped on accuracy and breakage a bit, but flight path on 70-80' was still terribly inconsistend. Unbelivable. I had well calibrated BSA Red Dot, I had a really nice Lapco Bigshot that usually works fine with other paint, I know how to aim and shoot, but with this garbage I could not hit anything from the first, second, third try. Horror!
Stay away from these balls. They are going to mess you and your marker up.
B.E. Paint, Zap Sport Series, Marbs, El Tigres, and many other GOOD paints.
right now a PMI Trracer stock
You might be able to get through some with one of those blowgun things...maybe you wouldnt break so much?
hmm...you get a good laugh at the people who actually use them...its too easy, just look for the orange mist...
lets see.....pretty much everything
dimples, eggies, hell, i could shoot jellybeans and they would go farther than these things, hell of alot straighter too.
Me and some buds came across this ultra cheap paint on a website, and being that we use BE for backyard nothings, we decided if we could use these instead we'd save a couple bucks for the good paint used in tournys.
Well we got the 2000 rnd case and opened it up
First thing we saw->broken paint..and alot ...must have been about 25 per bag.
we examined each paintball after we got them out of the orange water.. separating the semi-round ones with few dimples from the cubes,eggies,and ones with so many dimples youd think it was a mini golf ball.
We ended up with about 25 balls that would be even worth shooting out of the barrel..the rest were so damaged none of us wanted to put them through our spyders and tippmans
so we took the garbage paintballs and sold them to some kid for 25 bucks who had a blast whipping them at each other(guess throwing them is better than shooting these things)
I dont think we'll ever buy those again, hell, id rather use viewloader/BE than that $#!T.
Hopefully no one gets this stuff kuz its just no good.
nel-spot 007 in mint condition with original warning sticker in place
3" pvc pipe, a 20 oz on a drop with a butt plate, solenoid, trigger.... you got a paint RPG
their consistency in being lousy paint
brass eagle paint puts this to shame. this paint is honestly a true grade D paintball. if you could classify this, it would have to be classified as the stuff that sucks. its the apitimyof paint.
low quality is not a word that comes to mind when i hear 98 degrees.
total crap, horrible breaks, terrible flightpath, and the paint itself... its about as thick as sweat.
thank god i bought 2 tubes from a buddy for $2. this stuff absolutely blows. my nelson 007 is more accurate with bigball than my angel is with a titanium boomstick with this paint.
go bury your face in a huge pile of onions. seriously. make it look like your crying because if yoou use this paint people are gonna call you a poon after you yell curse then get lit up and cry.
A-5 wit expansion chamber, remote and hose, a 14 in tear drop, and a response trigger.
maybe a stock barrel because these paintballs break in my tear drop.
they are bright colored
they break easy
i think if you buy these paintballs use a stock barrel. The break in any other barrels. Tell you the truth i think bluestreak paintballs are better than these are. i used them in my gun and i broke amost all the balls.
if you have a stock gun than these might not breake in your gun but they break in modified guns.
dont buy these paintballs unless you dont care about breaking paint in you gun.
Brass Eagle Stingray 2 with:
-Venturi Bolt (with better O-Ring, the one that comes with it sucks.) -Plastic Detent Ball -8" ported DYE Barrel -Mounted Laser Pointer -Hammer-Penny trick -Hole in handle and stock buttplate for strap -Remote adapter (cut a hole in the top of a two-tube ammo pouch for the 9oz CO2 tank so it now carries the tank in 1 part and a 100-round tube in the other.) -Gas-thru stock attached to remote -Widened the hole in the gun frame where the Velocity Adjustment Screw hole is so the screw could go just a little bit higher. -Velocity Adjustment expansion -Handpainted the Stingray logo and text bright silver
Well, they're relatively cheap....
...but they break like they don't want to be shot.
I hadn't used these before I headed to a local indoor place because pretty much all of the outdoor courses in MA are closed until April. So, I've been using them for awhile there because they only allow field paint and they only sell 98 degree paintballs. My friend and I were initially delighted to see that this place charged less for thousand-round cases of paintballs, of which the box was labelled "98 Degree."
Now I'm usually not one to be able to tell a huge difference between performance in paintballs... but these are just awful. Most of the time they break before they even get to your chamber. Honestly, it was with these rounds I encountered my first internal hopper explosion, and I was less than pleased to see the entirety of my Viewloader lid get spattered with white paint.
I'm also entirely aware that many people would jump to say that I break a lot of paint because I use a Stingray, but trust me;' I'm one of those bored kids who mod the bejeezus out of their marker and when I use pretty much any other brand, I don't get breaks.
But these on the other hand... oh, man. Not only do they break, but they have some kind of solid mineral type of thing in them; when I pulled out my detent ball to clean it it looked like it had been spattered with confetti. That and they'd embedded themselves in the O-Ring of my bolt by some act of God, and it's like they ate away at it or something, because now it looks cratered from where said mineral-thingies were. Were these paintballs designed for the sole function of destroying your marker or something?
I'd never chopped as much paint before I used these even with my stock bolt AFTER it was dinged. And I was firing these off with a brand spanking new coned Venturi and a plastic detent ball that'd been through less than 100 shots. That and the entire chamber of my gun was coated in ATF. It's been the exact kind of situation where a ball should NEVER break. But they do. By some act of God, or lack thereof, these balls do nothing but break.
Just... run. These are reminiscent of the factory defects that you can find for marked-down prices on the shelves of paintball field stores, only labelled as an actual brand. Use them as a cheap, cheap alternative to buying rounds for gun-testing. (Though I'm sure many of you aren't fanatical gun modders like STING members, so I guess that gives you reason to never buy these paintballs at all.)

I got a bag of 500 for $5, I thought "why not, they cant be that bad" boy was I wrong. I filled up some in one of my speed pods. In a big shoot out I put these in then first shot [mist] I shoot a couple times [mist] [mist] [mist] then some chunks fell out and I ran away like a little girl.
cleaned barrel, went back and shot...one made it out! and I didn't know this was possible but it bounced! The shell is so weak it can break in the barrel no problem but then it bounces???
nothing at all can help these ive shot them out of freaks and boomys but nothing helps
i was goin to play someback yard ball wit my freinds and went out to buy some cheep paint they were out of everything exept this shi t i bought half a case and got it for only 8$ cuz the store said they were so badly broken that well cut the price
