Brass Eagle (suks cok)
Viper Venom (not much better)
Nelson Hot Spot (a little better, good for target practice)
Spyder Shutter with electronic ESP frame, 12v revvy, 9 oz CO2 (does me fine, considering i can get it filled from a friend for 2 bucks), stock barrel with homemade silencer (email me if you want me to tell you how to make one!, really quiet).
any medium bore barrel does great
I myself dont really care what barrel i use. A barrel is a barrel to me, unless its a flatline barrel.
Never break or chop.
9/10 break on target.
Sometimes they don't break, but sh*t happens!
Only come in white.
These are quite possibly the best paintballs you can get for your dollar. Its about 60 dollars for 2000 at Wal Mart. I, at least in my experience, have NEVER chopped nor broken a ball, not even in the barrel, and i have shot about 3000. They are quite accurate. These are the best Diablo has to offer, not including Hellfire that is.
Kicks BE's butt and kills TC Venoms (they suck alot, almost broke my gun, leeked everywhere, note to self, never buy Viper Venoms, stick to Dusk.)
Super Swirl, PMI Premium, Viewloader, Marbs, and 32 degrees (competition and team colors)
Tippmann custom 98 with 14" J&J Ceramic
J&J worked fine, balls just plain sucked
-Nice bright color to follow
-Nice bright fill (Neon Orange)
-Can buy at Wal-Mart
-Can buy in various amounts (200 rnds, 500 rnds, 1000 rnds)
-Not very consistant in accuracy
-Very hard shell (doesn't break when it hits people, even at close range)
-Even though the shell wouldn't break on people, it broke in my chamber (FIRST TIME I'VE EVER BROKEN A BALL IN MY TIPPMANN, AND I'VE HAD IT FOR 2 YEARS)
-Rather expensive for what you get (I payed 7 bucks for 200!)
-Many dimpled balls
CRAP! CRAP! CRAP!
Maybe this paint would work better with a different gun, but I wouldn't recommend it for Tippmann. These balls don't even break on people at close range, and worked even worse at long range. Sometimes the paint shot quite accurately, but it wasn't consistent. The only reason why I bought this paint was because I wanted to test a few brands, but I definitely won't blow my money on this junk again.
spyder Electra DX w/ 68ci 4500 Bulldog N2, and a eVLution ll hopper.
anything if u buy them
cheap and they are sold almost everywhere. They dont break in barrel
They definetly dont break on your targets or anywhere as a matter of fact.
These paintballs are the second worst paintballs i have ever fired. out of a 1/4 case of paint not one broke on my target unless i hit him in the mask. It was like firing rubber bouncy balls. and they curve all over the place. i will never buy this paint again. They become sticky if exposed to sunlight and a few actually melted. Buy afterburner paint if your gonna play a woods game or just fooling around for the same price afterburner is a thousand times better.Oh and by the way the worst paintballs i have ever fired are hotspots. Dont buy either of them!!!! the greatest paint in the world is EVIL!
If you absolutely have to... Ummmm still dont buy them.
some others (sick of listing them)
Spyder pilot acs '05: 14" tru flight barrel
low rise clamping feed neck
run on co2 (tank size varies)
14" tru flight barrel
Breaks on target
Round and sound
Can not long find locally
I used to be able to find these at a local Wal-mart Super Center. These where one of my favorite paint to use. Inexpensive with nice quality. Never had a break in the package. The balls were always nice and round. Hardly ever found any dimples. Didn't break in my barrel (and that statement includes my crappy Brass Eagle Eradicator). They were fairly accurate. Even so in my stock barrel. I would go on and on on the fill but for me it was white. Which is required at a local field that allows BYOP.
They fly straight. They fly far. They break on target. not in your barrel. inexpensive .

Ive used many other like
- Zap (bunch of their different balls)
- Brass Eagle
Spyder Pilot ACS with 20 oz Co2
Any barrels are fine these balls are great
Break on target
Um... I havent seen any
Ive used so many different paintballs before and i could come across a ball that was not too expensive but also performed great as well. A lot of brands out there break and leave such a mess in your gun. With the Dusk you dont get that. Ive probably can count the number of breaks ive had in the past 3 three years using this ball. They are awesome. If your looking to find a good ball that is worth buying then buy these.
I use a 14" Smart Parts Tear Drop on my Tippmann model 98. I just recently added a custom made drop forward.
Smart Parts Tear Drop is what i used
Easy Break, Hard to wipe off, nice color
I only used these balls a few times...but they're good...Break easy and they're a nice bright paint. And it's really hard to wipe off. My neighbor was using this paint and some of the balls were broke in the package and it didn't work very well...but who hasn't got a few broken balls in packages. I like the hard casing on them and they break really nice...I may sound like i'm repeating myself but it's good paint...I recommend it.
Good paint, buy it!

For a paint you can buy at wal-mart or academy, its actually pretty deacent. I usually shoot X-ball Gold or bronze (depending on temp) but for screwing around and mowing rec ballers, being able to just stop at the store and buy a case is very nice.
Price isnt too bad either.
Ill give it a 9, its ownly downside is I often get batches that are a little dimpled.. but for the price.. its acceptable
Hmmmmm...the OPSGEAR Operator works well, so does a Stiffi from what I've tested.
Nice shell thickness
Good thick fill
None I can think of...
Started using these about a year ago when a friend showed me them, I've liked to use them since. I get very nice groupings of about 5-6 inches from 30 feet or so. They don't however, perform as well in the cold, about 10-14 inch groupings from 30 feet away. They have a nice fill thats thick, and you can get them in a very wide range of colors.
An all around good paintball that gets the shots on the mark 95% of the time. Good for rec play, for tourney play I'm sure theres better. You get quite a good bang for your buck.
The first time I used Dusk it was ok, It did'nt shoot very cansistant but no barrel breaks. The second case that used I ended up giving half of it away. The paintballs had a texture to them and many flat spots on them. Maybe just a bad case but I think if you spend just a few more bucks you will get alot better paint.
Try at own wrisk.........Only if you can't spend a few more bucks...
Zap ZXS extreme
-great paint, if you like chops, low visiblitiy in flight and on target, and a tiny splat. yeah, suck.
Pilot ACS (red/black)
Cheap gravity hopper
20 oz Co2
Homemade Wood Grips
Lots of camo
stock spyder barrels
I used them with a flatline with no problems
high visibility in flight
Great visibility fill
pretty thick fill
Havent found any yet
Works great with my stock spyder twist port barrel, i've fed them thru a flatline no problem so that says alot. mine are orange and gold with yellowish fill. they look, and work just like tracer, you can see em all the way to target. pretty good price, they go on sale where i get em for 8 bucks for 500, thats $32 for 2000 so great deal. havent chopped one yet, but thats thanks to my ACS bolt. none were broken when i opened the bags up.
Oh yeah, i forgot, THEY ALWAYS BREAK ON CONTACT! i've had people shoot me at distance 5 or six times and none break on me and my first ball on them always breaks!! I'VE NEVER HAD ONE BOUNCE OFF ANYONE.. EVER!
edit, i have chopped a couple of these balls, i set up a sheet that i shoot so the paintballs wont break, for practice.. and i ran the same balls thru my gun about 7-8 times at least... and by then they got really brittle and started to break.. as expected. and i also chopped one in a game. someone got a lucky shot into the end of my barrel as i was shooting, and it made a mess.. but it cleaned up in a few shots
Overall very nice paintballs with a great price. only 9 because im sure theres better
