Barrels:
Any kit with a .685 barrel. I use a J&J Ceramic 2-piece Elite Edge Kit. Works flawless.
Strengths: Accurate
Very Consistant
All very high quality
Glitter bright green
Don't smell bad
Weaknesses: Hurts to get hit by them
Could break a little easier
Review: Well, I've tried stingers, VI's, and a few other types of paint. When I tried the EKG's, they matched my .685 back perfectly on my J&J kit. Honestly... these things were ball on ball every single time. They flew far, straight, and broke upon impact. The fill is a thick, bright green paint which washes off pretty easy, doesn't stink, and actually has a hint of glitter (which also washes out w/o problems). I think the glitter's there to help prevent cheaters from wiping.

When i listed the weaknesses earlier, I was taking some of that from my girlfriend. She was quite honest about how much it hurt to get hit by them. It's not like I got many bounces, because I didn't. But I just think that if they broke a little easier, they probably wouldn't hurt so much. lol

I can't rant and rave enough about how consistent they were. Granted I have a good reg, but a good round paintball, and good barrel match affects velocity just as much the reg, and these were flying out at +/- 5fps every time.
Conclusion: Very good paint. Would definately recommend, although keep in mind, I haven't used the ultra high quality stuff.

Barrels:
I was matching it up to .686 and that seemed to work.
Strengths: No dimples
Bright fill

Weaknesses: Could break a bit more on impact
Review: I like these paintballs. I'm not sure if I'm getting ripped off at my local field as they sell them for $55 a case, but I have no way of comparing their price. Anyways, none of the cases I've shot have had dimples, are all consistent in sizing, and have a bright fill. The only downside is that only about half the shots I hit others with broke, but that makes me want to search for a new brand.
Conclusion: Awesome paint, pretty good bang for your buck, but it needs to break more. What's the point of having awesome paint that won't break upon impact?

Weaknesses: theyre KINDA hard, but all nelson paint is...
Review: Good paint, i shot it today and did very well. I was getting fluxes of 5 or less, which is nice. Like all nelson paint it is 685-690. It broke pretty well, with a nice fill. It was pretty good on the wallet, $45 for paint that shoots like $65 paint. They are really cool looking as well, a nice swirly shell like marbs, but 30$ cheaper... Youll like this paint, it will probably be the only thing i shoot from now on.
Conclusion: Buy it, youll like it.

Barrels:
I've only used them in my JJ barrel
Strengths: Accurite. People know when they get hit.
Weaknesses: 5 out of 10 don't break on contact. Expensive.
Review: I have bought only one case of these myself. They do fly strait, but I had a problem with them hitting my target and not breaking. Thought maybe it was a fluke. I was wrong. Most of the people at the field I play on uses these, but I'll never waste my money on them again. I have been hit many times by this paint and walked away unscathed. I would rather spend $40 on paint that plan out misses 5 out of 10 times, but breaks every time, then $60 paint that hits it target, but doesn't break 5 out of 10 times. The odds of me getting lucky add hitting him and the cheap paint breaking. I think They cost to much to not break on contact.
Conclusion: Don't waste your money.

very hard ball.
very big seem.
Review: I thought I would give the ekg paintballs a try when I saw them at my local field for sale.
I dont think I will buy these balls again. They didnt break on targets as easiley as I was hoping and the seems sure didnt look like a mid grade paintball seem. However, they sure did fly straight. I could follow my stream of balls for better accuracy. Some people dont like this because this also means your opponent can also see them coming.
The white fill/ white shell was cool.
Conclusion: The bottom line for this paintball is that there are cheaper paintballs that will perform at a higher level. If you have shot this paint and liked it, try xo v1 or jt fluid hydro or monsoon. They are cheaper and perform much better.
