not much but mostly they dont tend to break on people, hmmmm....
i agree with what the others are saying about this product, but when i always shot them off they almost always bounce off of people, unless u hit them in a solid spot (like the mask), my friend snuck up on me while we were playing and shot me in the leg with about the same type of gun from about 5 feet away, he was using the same paintballs i was using (hotspot) and it bounced off me. i was only wearing jens and it was almost a direct hit. it left a BLOODY mark and it left me limping for the rest of the day pretty much.
If u want to turture your friends with pain and not get them out often then these will work for you!
Spyder Victor with a Quiet Riot Barrel, just that basicly stock..
Well The ball shell is good quality..
THE FILL! looks like a really light rust color
I found that this paintball product is very affordable and the shell of the ball is very good, but unless you play with people you fully trust, I would not recomend this product.
I bought a case and shot around half of it and when I couldnt see my hits on the other players, I just gave up using it, the fill virtually dissappears on contact.
The fill is a really light rust color, very bad for games but they do fly straight for me and they hit the target very good, If this company changed the fill to a brighter color (IE:Bright Neon colors) I would buy this paint ALL the time.
Long story short, unless you want this for target practice buy it, For PB games pay an extra 10 dollars and get something better.(The rating I gave it reflects the price quality of shell, The fill just sucks)
Just my 2 Cents........
Hard shell will cut threw brush but still breakable enough to break
none that I can think of
I have only put a couple cases of Hot Spot through my Cybrid but my gun loves it if i dont shoot to fast without a electonic hopper. Other than that I love this stuff and i will keep right on using it and probably will when i get my Smart Parts EOS.
I would keep buying these paintballs and would recomend them to my friends. Keep up the good work Nelson!

Cheap, thick fill, and well packaged
Inconsistent, bounces alot, and inacurate
I bought this paint at a sportsmans warehouse and took it out to the field in the same day to test. It shot terrible, didnt break, and chopped alot. I had to be within 5 feet for it to break every time. It broke ounce at 25 feet. It also couldnt handle the e trigger on my gun. I had to shoot single shot to not chop.
All in all a mistake to buy. If i had to describe it in one word it would be unreliable.
Just some practice grade paintballs forgot the name of the manufacture. But they were not any good.
Alpha Black Tact stock
Did not have any breaks or chops.
None that I could have seen.
I had very good luck with these paintballs even though many have hit or miss luck with them. I got them for only 25 bucks a case so I would only but them again if they were on sale. I am a cheap paintballer. I shot alot of them and had not problems with chopping or breakage. So buy these paintballs when they go on sale and do not feel guilty if you go through about half or three quarters of them like I did.
Purchase if only on sale and you want to shoot alot of them.
Nelson Hemmorage- A little more expensive, but worth it.
Nelson Special Forces- Really nice paintballs, fly straight and break on impact.

I would say you can use these balls with about any barrel.
Break about 70%-80% of the time
Work in many barrels
Dont always go straight.
These are the cheapest paintballs at Fleet Farm, and I don't have much moola, so I usually buy these for woodsball. They are good for the price, and are pretty good all around.
I have tried some other paintballs, such as Hemmorage and Special Forces, and they are better. If you are tight on money, buy these for temporary use, then wait for nicer paintballs to go on sale.

I use the .684 insert in my Freak. Works great.
Very few breaks in barrel.
Bounces are fairly common.
I like this paint if money is tight.
If you have few bucks to spare though I would step it up to Nel-Splat.
This is a good paintball for the casual player, woodsball, or rec. player.
Withstands the impact of my buddy's A-5 in full auto with zero breaks.
Great all around paint for the price. Rec. and woodsball only. Not a tourny grade.

I dropped these suckers on cement then dropped a brick on them and they didn't break. They left some pretty nice bruises on my friends but that doesn't get you anything but laughs. I would stay away from these. I used them a few times and won't use them again. They aren't worth it. Buy something else. Unless you are trying to destroy something or just plain hurt somebody these paintballs are not the ones to buy.
Stay away. They make good use for just messing around but not for game use.
Flies very straight, almost no gun/hopper breaks, price
Doesn't always break on target...
I use this paint when I am going woods/senario balling. This paint flies very straight. Its best strength tho, is definately its cost. You can't go wrong with 2000 balls for $30... The only problem is that I occasionally get a break in my hopper, or the paint will bounce, but keep in mind that that happens maybe once in every few cases. I really dont have much else to say other than its really good paint for the price.
