Tippmann 98 Custom
14" J&J Ceramic Barrel
BSA Red Dot Scope
PMI Remote Line
Pink ones shoot fine
Yellow ones ALWAYS BREAK!
I've had different results with the two different colors, so I'll do a review for both. Pink:
These are OK paintballs. There pretty cheap and they work well enough. They do break in the barrel occasionally but theyre easy to clean and I buy these from my local field. Average Paintballs that do what theyre supposed to.
Fill spread: medium-good
Fill thickness: medium
Breakage: Medium 6 out of 10
I've never seen anyone have any luck with these. When I myself shot these, at least 90% of my balls broke. YES, I did say 90%. Im really not sure why theyre different from the pink ones, I heard it has something to do with the production of the yellow color or something. Anyways, Whenever I buy Elites from my field I ask for the pink ones, and if you get these, I reccomend you do too.
Fill spread: Medium-Good
Fill thickness: Medium
Accuracy: Can't say
Breakage: HORRIBLE, they always break in the barrel! 1 out of 10
Pink: If you want some nice, cheap, rec/practice paint, get these.
Yellow: No matter what you do dont buy these!
I give the pink a 6, but listen, dont buy yellows!

I purchased these paintballs because i saw there ad in some paintball magazines and they looked decent. I also looked at them before i purchased them to see how hard or soft they were, and they seemed ok. But when playing with them I noticed that after a while they were not going into my gun from the hopper. Then when i opened the lid to my hopper I realized they were all stuck together. And it wasnt very hot out either, it was only around 70-75 degrees outside.
Don't ever buy these paintballs unless you want one huge paintball to throw at the other players.
Spyder Shutter java edition with J&J ceramic barrel
nothing will help with this paint
Breaks almost every shot, curves like crazy, fill and shell both suck.
Even if your a player just starting out this paint is a real waste of money. How can you improve your game if your paint stinks? I recommend RPS All Stars and anything from Diablo and Proball is pretty good too.
JT Maxim, Diablo Dusk, 32 Degree Competition and Team Colors
Tippmann Model 98, Flatline barrel, CAR collapsible stock, expansion chamber, venturi bolt, aluminum powertube, remote setup
Not Much. I bought them on sale for about $30. They are relatively cheap.
Everything that wasnt good. Shells are too brittle. Balls arent usually round and dimple easily. The case I ordered came with broken and mis-shapen balls. Balls broke easily in my pods and hopper which is a real nightmare.
I dont recommend these paint balls for anything but beginners. Not really woth the money and definately not reliable at all. After my first 2 rounds with these balls I only used them as back-up ammo.
I've only used BEs and Nelson Anarchies, but they don't come close.

20 oz Pure Energy Co2 Tank

Neon colors so you know when you hit 'em!
Bags are hard to retie
If you want some GREAT paint, BUY THESE BALLS. You won't be sorry! These balls hardly ever curve. They are high quality paintballs that are sometimes hard to find. If you DO come across some of these balls, buy as many as possible. Buying one case will soon leave you with an empty hopper and an empty box and you'll be sorry you didn't buy more. I love these balls and YOU will too!
My conclusion is that if you want a good quality paintball, these are the ones to buy for many good reasons as you can see listed above. I will no doubt stick with these paintballs for as long as I play this sport.

the balls realy dont break they just kind of melt. i tried droping one threw my barrel and paint came out. i stuck my squegie threw my barrel and the ball came out. part of the ball melted in the barrel and when i got the ball out it was smaller. i also got shot with them a few times and it just left a skid mark on my camo shirt. that was different. i bought the cheap and i thought they would be good because they were jt. i was wrong.
do not buy.
pmi balls are better

they suck so bad you might as well not even use a barrel
cheap 2 cases $60.00, break easy on targets
one out of every five breaks,unaccurate, they only come in pink
These are the worst paintballs i have ever used and they give a bad name to JT one out of every five breaks in your barrel and once one breaks they keep on breaking and not even shooting out of the barrel. if you buy these paintballs i would reccomend that you just shoot them in your backyard because if you use them in a game you will lose. even if you shoot them in your backyard bring with you a squegee, paper towels, and your hose. Bring the squegee and paper towels because the paintballs will keep breaking. Bring the hose because your mom wont be happy after she sees all the PINK paint all over the backyard.
My Stiffi did ok, I suppose...
Tippmann A5 stock barrel did fine
Dangerous Power G4 barrel was decent
Piranha GTI stock barrel did poorly
Don't break on contact
Not very consistant
Dimpled (brand new)
Well, this was all that Wal-Mart had on the day we needed paint, so we grabbed a few cases. We shot them all day and these were our test results:
Well, for $35, you're better off getting the rec grade stuff. Not much improvement between the grades as far as accuracy and consistant molding. 3/5
I was surprised at how inaccurate my Stiffi was with these balls. It's a tack driver with Visible Impacts and Nexxus, but it didn't like the Elites. My friends all had similar results.
They were very dimpled right out of the box, and some of the shells had ridged seams. The fill varied greatly from thin to thick with each ball, so it didn't really work well for marking consistantly. 2/5
Well, they hardly ever broke on contact. I had one fired from my friend's A5 skip off my mask lens and not break. I even took a hit to the hopper and it simply ricocheted. Firing them at my friends required firing 5-6 balls to have one have a chance of breaking. They also fed very poorly in our force-feed loaders. Even my friend's Cyclone had issues feeding them. 1/5
Overall, a bad experience. Maybe we just got some bad cases, but...
I would not recommend these. If that's all they have at the store, you can play with them, but they won't lend themselves to victory. They are very poorly made and the fill is not bright enough for any application. They don't feed well in any hopper system, and don't work with small-bore barrels. Not a recommended product.
This is the first brand of paintballs i have purchased for my personal use. Previously i have used other friends' paint.
I use a spyder pilot a.c.s. with e-grip and is a factory set up with a 12 inch barrel.
Factory barrels should work just fine.
I have found there to be no strengths with these paintballs.
Paintballs break in hopper, break in barrel, they break apart in mid air.
Out of three full hoppers i have lost 2 of every three balls fired. I have used an automatic hopper and the balls broke inside, i used my gravity fed hopper and the balls broke inside.
The paintballs broke in the neck of the hopper every time making ball delivery into the gun extremely slow causing the gun to chop balls.
When fired, the paintballs have also broken in the barrel. I have witnessed in mid flight many balls break apart as well. I went crazy for two days straight trying to figure out what was wrong with my set up, and finally realized it is JT paint.
What really broke my heart was when i saw how easily the balls broke when i resorted to tossing them lightly against a phone pole about 8 feet away and saw each ball spat open like they were fired at 300fps. When the balls made it out of the gun intact, i would say 2 out of 5 balls flew straight.
I have never been so frustrated with a paintball product before.
I would not recommend this product to any one. It has poor make quality and has poor reliability. I would not trust this product in the field. I would recommend buying a different make of paintball.
