The 2002 line of Brass Eagle Paintballs has been greatly improved for the new millenium. Major technology and quality enhancements have delivered a new era in paintballs marketed under the Brass Eagle trademark.
The Brass Eagle Afterburner Paintballs are older, so they are not commonly available anymore.
They didn't break in the barrel or chop. Come to think of it, they rarely broke at all. They were also somewhat accurate.
The batch I got had an extremely hard shell. The Afterburners broke maybe 30%% of the time on a person. They actually embedded themselves into the fields hay bale bunkers without breaking.
I would not recommend these balls, especially those that play without using a chronograph to confirm your speed. The batch I got were extremely hard and let some deep bruises on lesser protected areas of the body. Also the fact you must punish your target with three or four hits just to get the ball to break.
E-force gti with progressive 14inch barrel, ricochet rhino, 12once c02, erm some other upgrades to lazy to list...prety much worth of 150$ of upgrades
Any, lol this is the best ball ever if ur only playin for fun and want pure fun
iIt doesnt pop
Its very cheap
Hurts ppl when they are hit
Not good for seriours paintballas
This is the funnist ball to play with it doesnt pop so everytime u hit someone they scream like hell and its very very cheap...WOOt ..this is like frozen paintballs....i play with this when i go to a cheap paintball field like a big one and i smuggle this paint in and hurt pplz and they dont know and i use this for shootin in my backyard

Ok, i got these last night at Walmart for 3.00 for 500 on clearance. I open them up and luckily they arent broken none of them unlike wild streak...lol. Anyway i went outside to shoot one and i was shooting at 285 fps!!!! and they didnt break!!! what the? It took all my weight to finally brake one...stepping and jumping on it!!! just to brake a ball? to me and my bro, those things are not only deadly, buit homosexual cause they will curve so badly and come back and hit urself!!

spyder imagine 04, empire reloader, 9 oz BE co2, Straight Trigger
Soon to have:
Teardrop or Razzor 14"
Maby a ACS
Can get at local wal mart
Chops, Not rounded well
Theese paintballs are sucky because I chopped about 120 out of 200. I was very discoraged in my crappy investment. The first balls I used were Mid-Evil paintballs never chopped once didnt even have to clean my gun. The second time i got theese for some backyardage i counted out 200 then see how much it would do it chopped 122 balls out of 200. All this guck in my gun screwed it very badly.
Break on contact 95% of time
Cheap but good quality
These paintballs are good quality paintballs for rec players. I used them, and find that they break on target easily and do not break in your gun barrel. They are durable and have a prettty thick paint, so wiping would be difficult. All in all a pretty good product, and one of the few Brass eagle products that I use.
This product is good for recballing and pretty much all round shooting.
Super swirls (awesome)
Diablo dusk (ehhhhh)
BE crap (AHHHHHHHH)
RM '98 w/ thunderboard LCD
J&J Ceramic 14"
J&J ceramic 14"
Thunderpig Truflite 9"
both never chopped a paintball shooting Super Swirls and Afterburners
Hard shell, yet breaks on impact, vry few dimples, bright fill, $4 for 200
Slight curve after 16 yards
overall, very good paint, 200 Afterburners for $3.88 is a hellovadeal, almost as good as super swirls (Afterburners have a few random balls with dimples whereas super swirls usually NEVER have dimples, but both are same bore size and both have good shells and fills)
awesome rec balls, if you are low on dough but love the sport, like i said before, for $3.88 for 200 anyone can play paintball and have a wonderful time with seldom breaks, i say seldom because even though i have never broken one, i run the balls through good barrels, and stock barrels tend to break more balls in lower end markers
guys, dont listen to the bad posts, most are n00bs who bash BE based on the bad products put out in the past, namely the old BE paint, the samuri, and the blade, and anyone who says otherwise didnt take care of their marker, i own alot of low end BE markers and treat them like my babies, and they love me in return by never breaking down on me (besides busted o-rings in my Avenger and a broken pump arm on my Talon, and a cocking knob shaken out in my stingray, all fixed easily and never had anymore problems)
so in conclusion, good paint by BE believe it or not, it wont change the fact, buy it at bass pro shops for $3.88 for 200 which is ridiculous for this paint, almost as good as super swirls, yet half the price good rec ball, pick them up almost anywhere they sell paint!!!
I give BE Afterburners a well-deserved 10, for the performance at this price, good job again BE, soon your name will be clean again (it would help if you burned all the Maxim 2s and started making Maxims again!!!)
These things work great when you want to play in your backyard. But that's it. You can't use them anywhere else. I tried using them while playing woodsball and they broke in the grass. I mean, I would level my gun and shoot, and when they hit the ground after 120 feet they just when poof. These should be used as practice balls, not real balls
If you want to get a feel for the way your gun shoots, use these. But, don't use them for anything else.

e-rex elite with 14 in. pmi razzor barrel and quantum hopper
They dont chop in gun
Their really bright
They look cool
not very oily
These paintballs are great for indoor and outdoor play . Ive been using them since first started paintball. They dont break in your barrel unless you have a crappy gun . How ever they could be a little bit more oily . The color of the paintballs are cool and the fill is really bright .
Spyder sonix, CMI Remote, 20oz PMI CO2, and a 32 Degrees Terminator barrel;
ACI Hornet wint a 50 round hopper, and quickchange CO2 adapter
any large bore barrel
thick shell, color variety, cool colors, long shelf life
fill isn't thick enough
i would recomend these to anyone with a large bore barrel, the fill does wipe easily and soaks in quickly. I had 200 rounds that had sat in a 3 liter sprite bottle in my room which i stored the paint in for a year, and they played great after a year.
good for any large bore barrel or anyone who has to chose between these and kick 'n' paint.
