Sometimes you can find dimples, but rarely
I have used these balls with my shocker and they have been consistent. They run about 35 bucks, and to run that through my shocker without any problems shows that they are good balls. They have good fills, and they break just the way they should. Occasionally i may find a single dimple in one ball, but i still throw it right into my hopper and dont see a difference. These balls have been flawless to me.
I would recommend this product to a person with a raptor and a person with an intimidator. Very good paint for the money

-Not moist from the bag
-Stains your jersey
-Does not break easily
I used this paint in the tourney that I went in and the paint would not come off my jersey after being washed. My other team mates also had the same problem when they got home. In addition the paint also does not break easily and is very painful when you get hit with it its like getting hit at point blank range
If your going to use this paint make sure you use an old jersyey
surprisingly, the quiet riot has worked great so far.
good color fill (at least in the yellow ones)
very oily fill
When I had recently purchased my first marker, I knew i should use good quality paint, but I didn't have much money left over from the purchase of the marker. These paintballs seemed to have decent reviews for the price, so i went ahead and bought a case. The first thing i noticed when I looked at them was that almost every single paintball had a large dimple somewhere. They must have been sitting in the same place for a long time at some point. The box says they are .68 caliber, but they were much too large for my stock barrel (which is also supposed to be .68). However, my marker came with a free Quiet Riot, which was almost the perfect size.
Next, I checked for broken paint. One of the three bags of 500 had a break, which i had cleaned up in about 30 minutes. So far, my impression was not very good. Still, you can't judge a book by its cover, so I set up a target about 60 yards away. I was pleasantly surprised when my first shot splatted nicely right in the center of the target (keep in mind that this was the first time I had ever shot this paintball gun). Despite the fact that the paintballs were more like paintcubes, the accuracy continued to be exellent for the rest of them. As soon as I tried to see how fast I could shoot them I chopped one, but you can't expect $35 paint too hold up at more than 5 bps with a cheap mech marker and a cheap PMI loader.
When I checked the fill of the paint, I decided it was ok. It was nice and bright for a while, but after a few minutes it sort of dried out and faded. Of course, that won't matter in a game. The texture was a little more oily than I would love, but hey--I'm not the one whose gonna be wearing that paint.
For only 35 bucks I didn't expect much. I was happy to find that the accuracy was great with my barrel, and I didn't get any breaks as long as I kept the ROF down pretty low. I definately wouldn't use this paint in a serious game, but for woodsball or casual play it works fine.
Marbs = better, but costs more, but this is like comparing apples to oranges
house paint from shop by my house = less than this stuff but its $25 for 2000 and its decent...

good all around practice paint, had good paint to bore match and shot extremely well out my All American barrel, broke every single time on the player and only once in the gun and even that was only a mere barrel chop, but with the All American barrel u can just shoot a few more balls and it becomes *i swear it does* even more accurate....anyways this is good stuff i am extremely happy with the price and performance.
BEST PRACTICE PAINT EVER!

EXCELENT paint for the price!!
Big seams, but I've seen worse.
I said "only tested" because of availability issues in my area. The truth is that I use 'em any time I can get my hands on 'em, but not enough to say I use them constantly.
First time I used this paint I was skeptical about its quality. I thought that a case which cost only $34. was going to be about as good as brass eagle crap, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Upon first inspection I found all balls to be well round and uniform in size. The seams weren't the most beautiful I've seen but I concluded that they were good quality by dropping a few (about 4' high) onto cement, and none broke.
On the field I've never had chopping issues. They fly true and far enough. As far as distance, they'll make it to your target but might not break at longer distances, the shell seems a little tough. The fill is bright and marks well but wipes easily.
This paint isn't perfect (marballizers would be be perfect 10/10 at this price) but you really get more than what you pay for with this paint. More paintball products should be that way.
If you're tight on cash and have the right size barrel, this is the way to go for a great performing paint at low cost.

I have used these balls since I began playing. They are the cheapest that I know of that perform decently. They seem to curve more than premium quality balls but you get what you pay for. There always seems to be one or two broken during shipping but so what? I'm paying 20 bucks for 997 rounds. The fill is dark and runny but once again you get what you pay for. I've shot maybe 4000 rounds and have broken 2 balls. (Not including one chop that was my fault and took forever to clean the pieces from between my bolt and gun.)
Great for beginners and practice. Okay for playing on sunny days.

very brittle, chops extremely easy. fill color is horrible(a rusty white)
Heres what happened with my experience with the paintballs
Me and some friends decide to go paintball at this field with some bunkers. One of my friends bought the nelson hotspot paintballs which i didn't trust for my gun. Once were all geared up and ready to go, my friend with the hotspots fires like 10 times. Chop. Ok... so bad luck he thinks. He bought a new Spyder E-99 never used before so its not the gun's fault. After he cleans the barrel he makes sure his gun is firing straight. 5 shots later... chop. Every 5 minutes my friend kept chopping. These paintballs werent broken when he bought them and they had many dimples. My friend probably shot about 750 shots that day and broke about 20 times. After any experience similar to that, you probably won't like these paintballs.
i personnely wouldn't buy these in a million years, but thats just me
Well, I have bought 3 cases of Hot Spots now, all orange fill, I have only had ONE ball break, and that was do to me trying to shoot too fast and chopped it. I find nothing wrong with these balls and would highly recommend them to anyone that doesn't want to spend alot of money and doesn't really care about what kind of paint or brand of paint they are using.
Good paintballs. I like them and have never had any problems with them getting shipped to my house and finding some broken.
Black Dragun, 14in teardrop, dye 1500psi guage, 20 oz with SP on/off, and ricochet 2k
Tippmann Pro/Carbine, 16in truflite, 20 oz with SP on/off, and a 9volt rev
Truflite or Armson
Break most of the time
Can't be used in large bore barrels, like teardrops and progressives.
These paintballs are actually pretty good for the price. I haven't found 1 of them that was dimpled or had flat spots. They don't always break on contact, but then again, what paintballs do. These paintballs are great if you are just getting into the sport and don't have a lot of money.
If you are just getting into paintball and dont have a lot of money, these are the paintballs for you, but if you are serious about paintball, I wouldnt suggest buying these. I would probably get hellfire or hot spot
Nelson's Anarchy Paint (same shell!!)
I've used virtually every paint out there at different tournaments.. and tried everything cheap for practice paint.
2k2 Smart Parts IMPULSE, VISION Board, Full Freak Kit, Jackhammer II LPR,Vertical Reg, Undertow Bolt, HALO No Rise, SS Hammer, Slick Shot, I-Frame, 68/4500 Centerflag Tank
Shell is very brittle
Accurate (same size)
Fill is a little watery/greasy... a little too easy to wipe
This is great paint. It's $30 a case which is a huge plus. It has the same shell as Anarchy paint, its really brittle--its perfect.. the average bounce is 2.45 which is good for tourney paint. But the fill isnt tourny fill.. its more of practice fill. So this paint is perfect for practice. The balls are really consistantly round, and they are accurate.
They're accurate and they ALMOST ALWAYS break... so pull the trigger an extra time or two and they won't be able to wipe it.
Great product for practice and rec-ball. It's like a practice paint in a tourny paint's shell. This is agreat product to use for practice.
