I use these quite often at NYC Paintball, they're pretty sturdy paintballs and can give great accuracy when using the right bore size. The shells are pretty hard, though. So these are known not to always break on impact, so you'll have to squeeze off a few more shots. If you find a good price for these i'd recommend them.
It fit my .685 back perfectly. So a small bore barrel should work well.
No blems. Very round.
Hard shell. I had many, many bounces.
Well this paint is pretty good for the money. It was field paint at a scenario game for $50/case. Out of an entire case I didn't see even one ball with a blemish or dimple. They call them stinger for a reason. I would compare it to marbs but with a much harder shell. I had bounces all day long on me and the other team and that's the only bad thing about this paint.
Good paint for the money but be weary of the hard shell!

Proto Matrix 6,
14" pepperstick .689 bore.
Empire Reloader B.
Anything in the bore sizes.
Cheap price, Best quality for the price
Nice painless breakable shell.
Drop-off with 689 barrel
Some balls had crooked seem lines
Kinda Smells bad
Bought a case of these for $35 to shoot out of my M6, Great paint for the pirce but Drop off with 689 barrel was kinda annoying... Ropes alright but once it reaches taget it does a 10-17" curve ball... Not to good with larger bores so don't do it unless you want a little drop off... I never tested them with a barometer but I heard they were .683. So probably better luck with those. I just shot my Empire ramps after and I was shooting ropes like you won't believe. No drop-off. Sure ramps are double the price, but it is tourney paint and this is more like Recball paint. Some balls had crooked lines that could effect flight, but still shot fine. Other cons, The Paintball fill they use really smells. It is all over the balls bags and inside. I don't like the smell of the filling they use but I guess that justifes the great price for good quality paintballs.
These will blow away anything at Walmart folks in that price range so pick them up. I give it an 7 for the good quality at a good price and only an 7 because of the drop off and smell of them along with being a little oily. Other then that RPS makes great other products like Marbs and Premium

I used these in a scenario. I shot 1000 of my 2000 balls. I didnt need to continue to shoot because they were accurate so i only needed to shoot about 5 balls a player or so. These are great whether your a first time player, or a 10 year yeteran.

Don't break some of the time
When I started playing paintball, I had a hard time finding good paint. I settled on a good brand that was very cheap. Never had a problem with them and they're easily available at Academy. Recently they went up in price. This led me to look on PBReview for a brand of the same quality at a great price. I found Stingers.
I bought a case of 2000 at Academy for my most recent game to try them out. They were only 27.99! I was pumped. I saved 10 bucks. When I got them I inspected them pretty well. They were very round. Didn't see an oblong one with a visual inspection. I tried my best to break one. They deformed when I squeezed but were pretty hard to break. That's great, cause that's the main thing I want to avoid with my paint is breaking in my gun. I used a good 700 during the game I played this past weekend. They all flew straight, and MOST of them broke. Got a couple head shots that broke, but the ONE that I know for sure didn't break cost us the game. I even saw and heard it bounce off the front of his mask. I got hit a bunch from stingers and higher priced paint and it bounced here and there as well.
Great paint for an unbeatable price. They don't break all the time, but that's the trade off for all the other pluses. I love form and function that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. RPS just acquired another loyal customer.

doesn't break in barrel.
Doesn't brake on target sometimes.
These are pretty good paintballs. I have used about 2500-3000 of them and not one has chopped in my barrel. They are very accurate with my Mr1 and CP barrel. They are fairly cheap ($35) I like the fill in the paintballs, it is very bright and thick. none of them have ever broken in my hopper either. They don't always break on target though. I once had to shoot a guy 3 times before one broke. I still think these are good paintballs though.
These are inexpensive, accurate paintballs. they hardly ever break in your barrel. they sometimes dont break on your target. I would reccomend getting these for recreational play.
No Barrel Breaks
Generally Break on Contact
One or Two may bounce but the solid shell thickness prevents breaks
Really good paintballs. These will never break in your barrel due to their thick shell. This may be a downside for some as one or two may bounce but i've never had that happen. They always break on contact for me. They pack a little more punch because they're thicker.

9" aluminum barrel (Stock)

Breaks on target
Cheap but good
This is really good paint, especially for the price. I dunno how well it works for high-end electro markers but it works really well with ANY mechanical markers and almos all low-end electros, electric hopper or not. You will rarely chop as long as you have a good electric hopper, even if you do chop it won't stop you from playing the rest of the game. The only problem might occur if you're trying to shoot through some brush in woodsball then they might break on a branch or something, but other than that they are excellent balls, especially for the budget player.
These are really great balls, BUY THEM! They are really cheap but really good.
I recieved these as a gift a few months ago. Normally i play with any of the ones ive got listed above. Generally my spyders two stock barrels work very well with those, but with these they did not seem to shoot as well as the others do. They seemed to not break sometimes but not much. I do like the fill tho.
Among what i normally get id rank them 3or 4 out of 4
9 out of 10
