The most dependable Rec-paint anywhere, Midnight is economical, without the "mystery batches" that plague the other low-priced brands. Fills wash out, and Midnight runs clean through every kind of marker. Now available in colored shells: Moonshine Yellow, Crimson Red, Aurora Orange, and more.
The DraXxuS Midnight Paintballs are older, so they are not commonly available anymore.

Anything that fits (.687 -.689)
Well, my local shop usually stocks rec-sport and i've been pretty happy with the results of it, but lately they haven't been able to get rec-sport and stocked midnight instead. I personally thought it was cool cause they had a wicked name, and a really cool box, so i coughed up and bought a case. I since i liked it when playing at the field there.
I've shot about a bag (500) of these so my review will be based on the results of that and a few drop tests on my hopper from my case.
Accuracy: these fly pretty straight, the only inaccuracy was not the paints fault (inconsistency of co2). It seems just as good if not better than rec-sport and a heck of alot better then the XO crud i'm forced to shoot at different field nearby
Shell: The ones i've shot at my local field were a red shell white fill so they were easy to see and you could tell easily when someone was hit.
Thickness: These break on target, not in your gun, very nice engineering
Dimples: There were a few dimples on the paint i was shooting but they shot straight enough even with the dimples. i was shooting about a 6 inch spread at 50 feet with my J&J ceramic.
Price: These are fairly good priced, about 5 dollars more than the rec-sport i'm used to, but way less than X-ball which my local shop stocks as well. well worth the few extra bucks
Color: The bag i've shot was red shell white fill, but the case i picked up was white shell white fill, so i don't know how easy it will be to see in the air. but the white shell doesn't seem to affect the eye in my hopper in any way. feeds just as well with any other paint.
Great paintballs, i bought em cuase they sounded really cool. there really nice and work great in my gun. the blow/roll test passed 10/10 in my J&J ceramic so its really good size wise.
What else can i say? if your looking for a cheap rec ball paint that gives the performance of a high quality ball, buy it. I give it a 9 since its not perfect, but dang close.

hellfire-awesomest paint you will every use! so not as good

brass eagle-starts with a "s" ands with a "K"
Ion,new evo 3, 68/4500 tank, freak barrel,bullet drop forward,blade trigger,firebolt
too brittle for flatline
Easy to see fill
Brittle but not to brittle
Love the name =)
Too brittle in the cold
I just went paintballing today. It was in the low 40's upper 30's when i got there and this paint was breaking all over in my hopper and barrel. It was driving me crazy. I dont think this is how paint should work if it is a cold weather brand (or atleast thats what i was told). But when it warmed up into the 50's it worked awsome. the white fill i had was very vissible because all the gear people usally wear is black so..... it was easy to see. But hellfire paint is the best stuff you can ever buy this doesnt even compare.
If you cant afford/too cold to get hellfire
Out of blaze paintballs
Get this you wont be dissipointed
That was the problem i was in haha =)
9 because it was wayy to brittle in cold weather and i got some corckskrews/curves.

shoot realy straight/very accurate
Wount break in marker
Splat realy good
I orederd these online with my trilogy comp from discount paintball. When i got them i opend up the package to check for breaks, not even one. There were four 500 round bags in the box(2000rounds), i shot about 400 rounds today and never choped one even when i shortstroked the trigger a few times, they splat awsome and have a realy good bright fill. Out of the 400 i shot sofar i think only 5 bounced, 3 of those when i shot a volly ball. Later on today i went down to a field by my grandmas house, aimed at a clothes hanger wheel (like a trolly that moves the hanger line when u pull it) about 40 feet away and hit it 7 out of 10 shots and the ones that didnt hit only missed by 1 or 2 inches. Then i aimed at a shed at the end of the field about 110 feet away, the balls hit it every time
I shot over 2000 of these and only choped 2
Wount break in gun
Always hit there target.
*I am giving this a 9 sence they occasionaly bounce off people*

Very inexpensive, flys straight doesnt break in barrel
None really good ball cheap price
If you want a good quality ball for an inexpensive price, this is your paintball. you can pick up a case for under 50 bucks and have a great time shooting them. far better than any brass eagle paintballs out there and will compete with some balls more expensive. great ball for the money go get some and try it out.
the fill is great. its too thick to just be wiped off.
somtimes it doesnt break.
This is probably the best paint i have ever used. The fill is perfect. The only bad thing about it is that sometimes the paint doesnt break like (1out of 20). And because i have to use soo many words in these reviews im just gonna say that brass eagle paint is terrible.
No paint can be perfect, but this is probably as close as you can get

Draxxus Dusk, Draxxus Heat, VL eyeballz, PMI Bigball and PMI Premium (PMI balls suck if you have an Empire twister barrel)
Tippmann 98 custom: 16" Empire Twister barrel, Hyperstar bolt, expansion chamber, collapsable stock, Red dot scope, 50 rd. hopper, and 9 oz. tank
Empire Twister barrel ( 16" or 14" )
Very bright and solid fill, extremely accurate, alot of colors to choose from no breaks
These balls are great, Draxxus makes extremely good paintballs, especially if you are just playing woods ball or just play every so often or if you are just starting out in the sport and want a ball that wont break in the barrel. I have tried several brands such as Viewloader, and PMI and Draxxus has impressed me the most.
Spending a few more dollars on these will save you money in the long run because you won't have many breaks therefore keeping you well supplied with more paintballs in the end.
spyder xtra, whisper barrel, ricochet ak, esp electric trigger frame, 20 oz tank
any .689 size
neved popped in a whole case.
I like these paintballs because they are probably the best next to blaze which are my favorite. They are cheap and not one popped in a whole case. They have a wide varity of colors also. they wroked perfectly good in my gun and hopefully it will work good in yours too.
Get this paint if you are a serious rec ball player and dont want to spend to much on exspensive stuff like blaze. I give it a 10 because like it almost as much as blaze.

Psycho Ballistics Rocket Cock
DYE Xcel Barrel 14'
Autococker Paintball Ergo Regulator
Kill Zone Flame Drop Forward
12v Revolution w/ X Board
Macro Line Kit
They always break when they hit a target, inexpensive.
They aren't as acurrate as some I have tried.
I play with these balls when I play in the woods, and they work great. I haven't had one break inside my barrel, and they never don't explode when I hit my target. I also like the way the fill is in the ball. Its got good texture. These balls cost about 40 bucks on actionvillage. They are a sweet deal.
Get these balls for rec play. They are cheap and good.
Spyder Imagine w/ all american 12/14 in front, 12v Revy, 20oz
its medium bore paint, **hint hint** use a medium bore barrel
good consistant size
kinda hard but they still break most of the time (at least more then Zap )
There good paint, for the price. Be sure to know your bore size before hand so u dont by the wrong size ball ^_^. This paint is very good in medium bores + there cheap/affordable. I will admit there not the best but they r worth the money. Diablo coulda made the shell better but it dosnt suck.
Overall ~ Good balls, cheap, worth it.
it said mi conclusion was to short so this sentance is a space killa ^_^
all I have used with these is a tear drop, and I am not an expert but they seem to work fine
nice colors, nice fill, pretty acurate (with right barrel),cheap
ocassional break, kinda weak, drop them on the cement they bust open
My local pro shop got me started on these because the Draxxus are some of the cheaper paintballs they stock, so I jumped on them. they work pretty well, nothing awesome, nothing bad, just overall good paint. Don't have many complaints, cept for the few occasional breaks I experience, but I'm not that disturbed by it.
Overall good paint, nothing special, nothing bad, I like how they just have them in bags, a lot easier to cart around to different places IMO. Pretty cheap too.
