Scorch and Heavy Metal. Both of those are from Wal Mart and they are A LOT better then these. That is SAD.
I have a Piranha Ext Pro G3 with 14" PMI Razzor barrel. 12oz tank. JT Goggles.
Whatever kind you want.
There ARE NONE. Except the ball has a cool orange look.
I got these balls from my Paint field and I heard these things were "supposed" to be good, but the SUCK. The fill is very watery, and they wipe easy too. They had demples in EVERY single ball I had. And I kept gettin hit in the back of the head by little kids because these balls would curve and hit me. And like another post said these things made my bolt get stuck and my gun wouldnt shoot or anything.
Flat out these things just SUCK! Dont buy them. Its a waste of money.

I play a lot of of woodsball and i need a lot of paint in my stock and so i can get a lot of these for a little money ! I don't shoot a lot but i have a Spyder so i can use a lot if i want so yes good stuff if you get it but if you don't no big
Electra 06 with eyes: and
Freak Barrel kit
4500psi 68ci Tank
possibly the freak, just for the fact that you can change the insert to fit the paint
ok, first off, I bought 2 cases because I was in a hurry and needed something cheap. so I have to give it that it's cheap.
I went through the first case before it started getting too hot out, and it was working great. I only had one break and that's because I shut off the eye, and they flew straight.
the second case was horrible, if it fit through the barrel, the paint would somehow manage to change direction in mid-flight even though my barrel was spotless. about half the case was good, while the other half would either chop or take a right turn towards the woods. The second case forced me to take up a front-line position on our team of 75, that was not a good time... Anybody familiar with canobie paintball in NH? yea, front-line position on the castle is a great time...
So basicly, buying this paint is a gamble, it can either give you great results for the price, or it can put your gun out of commission for a game or two. I'm personally buying Xball from now on, I've found that paint very reliable in my new electra, and the extra 5 bucks isn't too bad.
Draxxus (unknown type) - way better
XO industries Velocity (not available for review) - better
RPS Big ball - a little worse
Spyder Xtra, 32 Degrees night stick 16" (or J&J ceramic 12"), Standard View Loader Hopper, Kingman Delrin ACS bolt, PMI 12oz CO2
something with a larger bore than a J&J ceramic...
Cheap (unless bought at a paintball field)
Not always round
Weak fill colour
Balls chop easily
Not very accurate
I was forced to buy these balls at a paintball field. I bought 500, and after the day was over, my friends gave me theirs (they do not play often). I was not impressed with these balls. I had just bought my marker and the ceramic barrel. When I took my first few shots, a ball broke in the barrel... It went downhill from there. I did slightly better with the stock barrel, but the accuracy was less than steller compared to the Draxxus paintballs I started out with. I also noticed how easy it was to wipe off the paint, and how the fill was really weak. When I used the remaining balls for target practice, I found it difficult to hit a 4x5 ft plywood board at 90 ft, let alone the targets on the board. When I tried some Draxxus and Velocity balls, I was actually able to hit the targets on the board at the same range. I'm not super accurate to begin with (being a newbie) but I can tell when my paintball isnt flying straight. They were,however, significantly more accurate than the box of RPS Big Balls that I tested recently (see review).
I wont use this paint again. (unless I am forced to by a paintball field that only allows this crappy paint to be used) I gave this paint a 4 because it is still better than the big balls that I bought.

anything that is really large bore
um.... it was really cheap at $35 a case and I thinks thats about it
This paint wasn't very round.
Extremely large bore
Well I bought these because they were cheap and I was looking for something I could shoot a lot of to break in my regs on my autococker. However I spend most of the day cleaning out my gun and barel. This paint wasn't very round, I could see this just by looking at it. and when I went to barrel test this stuff in my A/C stock barrel a couple rolled out but most of them were to way to big and got stuck. They also got stuck in my Teardrop, and they didn't fly straight. About the only good thing I had with this paint was it did break in my regs. Other then that I really think this paint is bad. No quality control that I could see.
I would only recommend this paint if you enjoy cleaning out your gun and barrel as these break alot. They even jammed my bolt a couple of times. Never had this problem with any of the other paintballs i've used

Either bounces like superballs or breaks on touch.
Breaks a lot in my barrel
Bought 4000 of these, worst mistake I ever made. I took them for a day at Futureball, and these would not fly straight. I could curve right around bunkers. The spread was probably ~6-10 feet @ 200ft range. I shot ~1000 and had probably 50 breaks. I was shooting through them constantly.
I would not recommend this paint for any reason. Save your money for Predator or something.

When i first used this product i thought it would be a chap, Stinger like paint. But it worked great and now i always use it!
breaks easy, but not to easy
Thick paint, easy to see
None worth saying,
They main way i can tell its better than just a regular paintball is that it shoots straight farther than even Marbleilizer, and when it hits, its thick and bright. I have had great sucess with hot spot and other nelson products,worth buying
The best way to tell if its good is to try it out, at some places you can buy a case for like 35$, i suggest trying it out because you won't regret it
Hot Spot, for the price you pay, you're getting your money's worth. I used RPS Big Ball and the Hot Spot on the same day. With the Big Ball, one broke about every 50 - 100 shots, while the Hot Spots didn't give me any breaks at all. I'll go with the Hot Spot over Big Ball any day.
Hot Spot is a good paint for rec, it's cheap, better than most rec paint out there and is just a level down from Nelson's Anarchy (tourney grade).
Spyder E-99 Avant
Viewloader 12v Revolution With Xboard
-Cheap(Got a case for 35$)
-Doesn't chop balls
sometimes it doesn't break on target. Only rarely though
This paint is awsome for how cheap it is. I'm only 14, so it is good to find really good paint that is cheap because i can't afford tourney paint for like 50+ dollars a case for how much i go paintballing. I bought a case at the local paintball field around here(Boars Nest Paintball) and played with it all day, which is about 8 hours, and didn't chop any balls at all. I thought since this paint was only 35$ that i would at least chop one ball, but no. All my shots with that paint were all on target with my avant stock barrel. I didn't even notice any swirves in the paint other when there was a slight breeze here and there.
this paint is really good for the price. i read reviews before i bought this paint and i was thinking it was gonna be descent paint with a few chops here and there, but no it performed really well for me. I reccomend this paint for anyone who wants good paint at a really good price.
