Products Used:
Only real paintballs
Marker Setup: '95 Automag, Tippmann Custom '98
Strengths: Re-useable
Cheap alternative for test firing your gun
No mess in basement
Weaknesses: Only 240 fps rated
Review: I got these simply to test fire guns in my basement after I work on mine or my friends.

I set up a small trash can about 20 ft away from my work bench so I can just turn on my stool and fire a couple rounds right into the trash can. For this purpose they work great.

I have not, and will not, be using them to fire at anyone, although I know you can. They say to keep the gun chronoed at 240 fps if you do, but honestly I don't bother with that since I'm only test firing my guns. I want to test fire at full velocity.

Sometimes I miss the trash can and the balls get dirty from the floor or a cobweb in the corner. Or the balls get oily from the gun. I just wash them off in cold water and dry them out on a towel and it gets them clean again.
Conclusion: These work great to fire your gun inside for testing purposes. I would recommend them for that based on the last three months of using them.

I'm giving them an 8 since they do work fine, yet I have nothing else to judge them against so I must leave room for improvement in my rating if i ever use a similar product.

Marker Setup: Orange ANS Razor Ion

Hybrid 06 Contract Killer grips
Deadly Winds Fibur barrel 14" [1 piece carbon fiber, can be swabed, and takes freak inserts]

Strengths: Price
No lube needed
Decent accuracy
Low impact
Feeds decent sometimes
Weaknesses: Jams in hopper sometimes
Review: for the price of these, you can not go wrong. THEY DO NOT NEED TO BE OILED. they shoot great. the accuracy is that of medium grade paint. They shoot good with good bore match. They are slightly smaller then .689 but work well with that bore size. They feed rather good in my egg. they only jammed once or twice, other times were from my eggs weak propellers bending and letting 2 balls in one spot. they are great for price and shoot just fine over 240 fps...though you probably shouldnt use them over 240 if using against people....the warning is there for a reason.
Conclusion: Buy them they are cheaper then reballs and still shoot great...buyem.

Review: these are great for skirmishes in a gym or backyard.. but you have to lube them or they are horribly inaccurate.. you also have to drop your velocity to 240 fps or the are.. again.. horribly inaccurate.. they don't hurt too much.. barely noticable welts in about a 30 foot range.. WAY to expensive for what they are inside.. I think a paintball would cot more to make.. it's a pain to lube them and wash them.. to lube I suggest mixing lube and water and shaking with the balls inside.. in a container.. then pouring out the water and letting them dry.. I'd say they are worth a try.. I will probably buy some more for testing out guns and such.. I'll give them an 8
Conclusion: These are alright.. Reballs are better but cost a bit more.. with my autococker I found they would roll out the end of my barrel.. but It wont be a problem with a spyder or spyder clone.. there worth a shot.. low velocity games only though.. so close range

Products Used:
reballs
Marker Setup: Invert Mini, Halo B, DXS 45/48
Strengths: No mess possible
Reusable
Cheap
Weaknesses: Not accurate enough for target practice or play
Low fps tolerance
Review: Like many products this can be perfect if you understand what it is best suited for

Sadly it's accuracy is so inconsistent that all it seems good for is for test firing
usually at about 12 feet it dips or turns heavily

It looks much like a real paintball but it's non oily surface don't allow it to flow through hoppers the same way a real pb would so if your fine tuning your hopper this may not provide the best comparison with the real thing

I found 100 for 22 bucks

However if you need to run something through your marker and are tired of spending on practice paint which may break and cause a mess then this product may be perfect for you
Conclusion: Like many products out there this is a great product if you understand what it is good for

Weaknesses: *Jam alot, I mean alot
Review: I just got these about a week ago. I had never used a reusable paintball before, so my hopes were high. Unfortunatly, after airing my gun up and loading it up with the TAC balls. I began shooting at my homemade target and by the 7th ball my hopper jammed. This would happen every couple shots. The only way it would work is if i put a little handful at a time putting the balls in the little pockets in the in the drive cone. It really begins to be a pest.
Though it didnt work in my E-tek i would shoot great through my 98 except for when it would curve occasionally. But the TAC balls also couldn't be shot through my A-5. They would get stuck in the the cyclone feed right before the breech.
Conclusion: If you ware thinking about investing in reusable paintballs I would pass up the Rufus Dawg TAC balls. They are very unreliable and can only be shotten through certain electronic and gravity loaders
