As I always say, you get what you pay for. And it really says something when I payed $6.40 for 500 of them. First off, they smell horrible. Also, some come out of the box swollen, deformed, dented, busted, soft, etc. But, they're the best alternative when Walmart is the only place to get paintballs. The thing that really amazed me was, I shot a metal cable box in my backyard, and the thing bounced off! Not once, but seven times! Which is good if you're not on the recieving end of one. The point is that you should get good paint while you still can, and not be forced to stoop down to a n00b's level by buying Zap Vapors. I give it a 2 because they hurt people when they don't break.
If your local paintball shop is not open, head down to Walmart and pick up a case of these.

I usually am too busy to write reviews but this one needed to be posted. In my years of playing with my EGO, i have had 2 barrel breaks before today. I easily had 300, and that's with an ego, with eyes, with a halo, with a dart bolt used to shoot brittle paint.
W T F. I thought I would try new paint just to see if it would matter. My marker is awesome I thought. I have a .93 barrel which is pretty big I thought. I have everything to make sure even if I am shooting the most fragile paint, no problem.
This paint is sh!t.
S H T I E even!
It was like spray painting the air in front of me. I was shooting shells pretty far but that doesn't help if you are not a graffiti artist.
I shot 3k of paint. 500 was this garbage. 300 breaks? Not even bubbles have that ratio.
If you buy this paint, make sure to get a lighter and just put it right to your wallet.
If you buy this paint after reading this, you deserve everything you get.
Give it to anyone who you are playing against. It will fcUk them up.
This stuff is ok. Thats all there is to say the shell is really weak but I guess that means it will break rather then shoot rocks that just hurt like a mofo. The plastic 200 cases smash the crap out of 'em and they smell like a mixture of urine and monkey blood with skunk carcas added for a culinary flair. Fill is runny and white......ghetto .....since white runny paint wips instantaniously.
don't buy use PMI premiums. way better and not the much more
These have a lot of the paint in them, but its not very bright. Also 4/5 are not going to break on contact. They get richochet. If I had used better paint 2 days ago I would have hadlike 4 more kills. Spend 3 bu cks more and get good paint. I prefer fuel.
98 custom,CMI 16" QB Tru-Flite,Maddman springs,Ben Tippmann Sealed Bolt System,Psycho ballistics star fire bolt,Dye Stickies 3
CMI 16" Tru Flite
Shells look like plastic,the fill is like water,doesn't mark worth a crap,i bought these $11 for 500 and it wasn't a good investment even the Zap Spanks are better than this(for that fact BE is a better product than this)its totally crap worst paintball ever
Wouldn't recommed this save your money and get a better ball to shoot with.
Spyder Xtra, 12" stock barrel (also used 14" Dye Xcel), 12OZ C02, Bob Long Torpedo Regulator set to 300PSI, venturi mod, macroline, Dead On Dropforward, 32* Magnaport valve and pin
Well, I can say that the 14" Dye Xcel doesn't work very well with them. I'm still looking for a good match for the Xcel, but this paint works great with my stock barrel.
Price, Consistency in paintballs, thick fill, durable container
Well....the smell, field I go to doesn't allow ZAP paintballs
I bought these paintballs for practice in my backyard, and they were dirt cheap: 500 paintballs for $12! Anyways, I didn't expect to get wonderful results from such a cheap set of paintballs. Oh, and I recommend that you DO NOT pour these things into your hopper when indoors without proper breathing apparatus: these paintballs STINK! They smell like pond scum....yuck. Pouring them into my hopper was easy, since the 500 pack came in a plastic jug container that makes pouring them out a breeze, with no spill unless you put them in too fast. They're pretty consistent in shape, and the shells are strong enough so that they won't break in the barrel, but weak enough to break on target. I shoot at a wood block covered with a towel in my backyard for target practice (as well as tangelos from our little tree...don't tell!). Even with the towel on, they still broke every time, except for one. The fills are white, so they look like bird crap, but they're thick and difficult to wipe off. I should mention that the fills are also why the field I go to doesn't allow ZAP paintballs: the fill tends to stain clothing really badly, making it difficult to wash out. It's almost a match in heaven with my stock barrel, these paintballs have a perfect fit, and shoot pretty far. I can't guarantee how far they can go, since I shoot about 40-50 feet from my target, but they fly in a pedictable arc, and don't spin in different directions.
Aside from the rancid smell and that my field doesn't allow them, these are remarkably good paintballs for the price. I'll use these from now on as practice paint. Taking into consideration the smell and the fill thickness, I'll give these a 9/10. Maybe Candadian-made paintballs aren't so bad after all =P
I have been using this paint for a year now and really i have no complaints. Ya they do break sometimes but not to often. I have bouht a couple of boxes that have been dimpely and broke but its only been a few cases.I like them and my gun likes them sso thats why i use them.
I like this product. I recommened it to anyone looking for good cheap paint.
I needed to test my new Tippmann Custom Pro. So I went down to the store all they had was this or brass eagle paint, so i got this because it was cheaper. I had got 500 and took them out to the forest down the street. They shot nice. No breaks or chops.
Then I came on here to see how people reviewed it. I think I must have goten a good batch becaues I will try this paint again.
I think i had a good batch but for beaing cheap paint it shot good. I would recommend you try this before you goand spend more money because these can work.
Smart Parts Progressive 14 inch barrel
Soon to get an electric hopper
Pretty much a stock gun accept for my beautiful barrel
They break in the gun
They smell bad
They feel really greasy
And see review
My friend bought these for $20 for 500, and I was like wow why? next time tell me what kind of paint you are going to buy. Anyways we take them out and they feel really greasy and gross. They are oddly shaped. He uses a Zap ZXS 400 and the paint just kept blowing up in the gun and in the barrel. So I used my squeegee in his barrel and this paint smelled really bad and looked really bad. We ended up shooting up the box with the paint still inside of it because we didn't really want to use it. Well now he asks me what paint to buy before he buys it.
This paint is horrible, so many will break that you are better off buying mid grade paint because you will get to use the entire box of it without shooting half of them because the other half will break in your gun, which in this case are these horrible vapor paintballs. just DON'T BUY THEM!, and here is a list of goodish paint that works well and these are all the rating from www.paintballreview.com itself so you can trust them.
Tippmann 98 Custom - 16" barrel Opsgear Barrel
M82A1 Mod Kit from Ops Gear
May as well use a paintbrush
Breaks all the time
Got this for a buddy I wanted to bring into paintball, NIGHTMARE. Needless to say I lent him my tippmann, id never use this garbage if I was playing, and itd be ok for a bit but then a ball would break and it would turn into a paintbrush, id clean it and itd turn into a paintbrush again, and my gun went like 4000 balls without chopping and suddenly its a paintbrush with this stuff. The stuff didnt shoot straight. I wouldnt even recommend this stuff as test paint, it's Grade A certified Garbage.
I wouldnt recommend this to my worst enemy, although I wouldnt mind shooting at him from close range with this stuff, pretty sure hed get covered head to toe in paint. Worst paint ive ever tried, but I havent been dissapointed by the other Zap products ive bought.
