Playing paintball doesn't have to be expensive. Play with Affordaball and get a full case of 2000 balls for what others charge for just a single bag of 500! The paintballs come in all different colors and are a great value.
The Nelson Paintball Affordaball Paintballs are older, so they are not commonly available anymore.
Black Invert Mini
Pewter Smart Parts Shocker w/stainless freak back.
68/4500 DXS Stubby LP
Any barrel around .689-.691
Never chop, even with under boring
Shoot pretty straight
Don't break on target at all
Big seem line
Get pretty squishee
I play with these balls at my local field. For what I pay to get paint, i think they can do alot better with their selection. My field is just being cheap and not buying half decent paint.
This is a larger bore paint, so .689 is perfect.
When i was playing, i shot about 10 guys with 5 balls each from 50-75 feet away. None of them broke, they all bounced, even at 290 fps. I was so chocked. The tippmans with flatlines were breaking them on target, but my speedball guns were not. The only way these break is if they hit opponents gun, mask or feet/hands.
In the back yard they arent too bad. Nice fill, break on ply wood with ease, and dont break in the gun. I find it to be really oily, so its hard to wipe up off hopper, gun, without leaving a greasy residue, unlike some brands of paint that wipe up easily (this is good so people dont wipe, but bad if your cleaning your gear)
Overall, this is great paint if your playing around with friends, shooting in the backyard, or using tippmanns in woodsball. They are not very good for speedsball, or if you are trying to lob balls 100 feet at people. If you can afford better paint, get it, but unlike me, this is all i am allowed to use, which sucks.

Mainly Wal-Mart paint. You know, Super Swirl, Carnivores, stuff like that
Hehe, I love this part.
Tippmann 98 custom, RT, 4-stage expansion chamber, Red Dot Sight, 12" Hammerhead barrel and a Ricochet AK loader.
Large bore, generally
these things suck
Very very very brittle. oily. watery paint
OK, here's the problem. these things are so brittle that the break if you DROP them three feet. they will break in the bag, in your hopper, and they will break in your pods like no other. They will break in your barrel, and they will get tiny little holes in them as they fly out of your barrel and leave a position-revealing jetstream of paint as they corkscrew out of the way. and as they coat your barrel and the inside of your gun with an oily goo, they will get soggy and begin to break more, if thats at all possible. If your gun shoots fast, youll only see a cloud of broken paint in front of you. And when you do hit someone, they wont see the pitiful amount of extra-wipeable paint.
Do not buy. The cheap price is luring, but Blue Streak (a Brass EagleWal-Mart brand) are the same price and shoot better than this crap.
