i used tear drop, evil pipe .689, pcs m16 i think its a .690,jt 2 pc .688, big shot and jj ceramic all for testing and game play.
nice shell and fill consistency
it is what it is....good low cost paint
Recently the field had gotten a few skids of this paint for field use. reluctantly i got a few cases cause the price was just right. I tested it between all my setups prior to going to the field. all flew straight only having barrel breaks with the .688 jt. blow through tests favored the .689 18/20 with 2 roll throughs. the paint is nice and round with no dimpling in the 6000 rounds i had bought. I fired rounds from hp and lp markers with great consistancy and accuracy at 75 feet in a 12 in radius. chrono was consistent at +/-7 avg on multiple markers at the field. Orange fill was brighter on target than yellow imo.
i was greatly impressed for rec paint. most of a game day the paint match allowed me to longball more people consistantly. targets were fairly spot on at extended ranges 200+feet.
Finally some decent rec paint thats good if not really good and doesnt kill the wallet.
no complaints here.
Highly recommend it due cost, accuracy and consitency. Cheap good paint is getting harder to come by. i gave it a 9 because there are better paints out there i just have to find one in rec paint.
All brands you can get at walmart ... none compare. Also Stingers (no where near as good) and nelsplats (compareable i guess)
1: Tippman a-5 with stock, stock barrel, apex barrel or bt-4 barrel and expansion chamber and co2
2. stock ion with hpa 3000 bottle
3. ion with evil pipe kit, drop forward, and 3000 bottle
i had no problem with any of the barrels i used on any gun.
Very consistant paint. quality vs price
Alittle harder to find in the quantities i like.
lasts long time as i buy these 8000 at a time. Never had a problem with bad batches during delivery. had 1 broken ball in a bag over 16000 balls. With proper care and storage, they last me 3 months. Shooting just as good at the end as the begining.
NEVER had a break in my hopper or in my barrel.
i like the orange shell and color. this makes it easy to track in flight. i get very few curves. they have a good break consistancy with few bounces. also give easy to see hits.
cheap and high quality. i ve tried many types cheaper and more expensive. i like these best myself.
One month paint started to chop like hell yes i did store it right.
I bought it and was told it was great paint, first time i played with friends worked great but later that month played again and that was the first time ive broken panit in my gun, which ive had for about 2 years. Had to clean the barrel 8!!! times. It was horable so iam just gonig to get another kind.
Ok in the biggning on use but later it is the worst paint you coud buy!!
Almost No Chopping (flatline being the exception)
None that I can find
This paint is great for the price. I made the horrible mistake of buying players choice instead of Weapons grade one day. The Players choice is so bad, don't ever consider getting them but the Weapons Grade is so much better and is only a little bit more money! I used the weapons grade just today with my A5 and was shooting the same distance and almost if not just as accurately as I was with the Evils Ultra.
This paint is wonderful. Sure, you can buy Evils or Marbz and it would be better a little bit, but for the price, Weapons grade goes unmatched. Buy this paint if you're strapped for cash and don't ever think of buying the PWI Players Choice, even if it is a little cheaper!

Eclipse ETek EGO
+ Myth Regulator on CP 68/4500 Tank
+ Viewloader VLocity
+ 14" .690 Proto One Piece Barrel
Bright Orange Fill
Bore varies from .688 to .689
I found this paint to be the most consistent in quality from box to box. I never had a bad batch. For the price, the orange fill is bright and the shell is not too brittle and not hard as a rock. Leftovers also keep very well.
This paint ranges from .688 to .689. I found that a .690 bore barrel works very well for +/- 5 fps consistency while leaving enough room to avoid barrel breaks.
I recommend this paint for rec play or practice.

Don't break well
I picked these up at a local store that was running a special. They were fresh and in good condition. The accuracy was fine and they shot well through my marker.
The only main drawbacks are they had a tendency not to break which I have to think is an issue with the shell. They also had a lighter than average fill. The fill wasn't as much of an issue as the shell, I hit multiple players at point blank range and watched the balls bounce right off.
This is a very moderate level paintball. If you can get it for a good price, I'd buy it again. But, given the issue with bounces, there are multiple midgrade paintballs out there that perform better.
I started out with cheap wallmart paint but was getting a lot of chopping so i decided to switch to Weapons Grade. For only 5 or 10 bucks more i was getting a MUCH higher quality product. I've been using this for probably 1 year and have chopped only once.
Accuracy wise I would give it an 8/10. It used to take me probably 10 balls just to hit someone's hopper 10-20 yards away with my old paint. But with this paint I could nail it with probably 3-5 shots. It curves a little. What paint doesnt?
Color gets a 10/10. Bright Orange. Easy to see. [what else is there to say?]
Breakability gets a 10/10. No problem with bounces for me.
Hmm...did i leave anything out? Never got a box with a broken paint or dimples. So thats a plus.
This is a great quality paint for its price. I see no reason why you would need to buy the more expensive paint if your just a recreational player like me. WAY BETTER than cheap wal-mart paint AND it can hold up against the 50-60 dollar a box paint. BUY IT!
ICD Promaster w/ ICDU Low Pressure Cylinder
Pure Energy 48ci/3000psi
Smart Parts ASA
Stock PM barrel work great so the bore for those are recommended, dont no exact bore.
ALWAYS broke for me
These paintballs are amazing. I picked up mine for $35 for one case. I never chopped any of the balls with my gun.
Weapons Grade Paintballs are very accurate, considering the stock Promaster barrel sucks, and they ALWAYS break!!! These are a STEAL at $35 a case!!! I would recommend these paintballs to anyone, they are cheaper and 100 times better than anything you find at wal-mart. Won't break the bank.
Also, these have a bright orange fill and mine had a dark green and brown shell. Works wonders in the Halo loader too =D
Buy these paintball's if your store carries them and if you are on a tight budget like me.

-Visible Impact: I liked their color but when I mixed his paint in my hopper, I could tell exactly which ones were which! The Visible Impact kept swerving, while my Weapons Grade actually hit my targets.
-The field's "premium paint": These = expensive (60$ a case). and Curving like crazy!!!
-20oz CO2 Tank
-14" CP barrel
-WPN Weapons Grade Paintballs
I used a .689 bore barrel. No breaks and no chops so no complaints
Trying to find them
Doesn't break in barrel or hopper. I drop tested these balls and they broke consistently at about 5 and a half feet. I stored them for about a month before using them and they shot perfectly fine. Even better than a case I bought for 60$ at my paintball field. These are worth it if you can find them! Only bad thing is that I've only found them in one store... =P
Not bad for price. They are the best paint I've used. I've paid alot more for paint and I decided to be cheap on paint for once and got these for 35$ a case.
