None. Dont even waste your time buying.
Ok, I evacuated to Texas to avoid Hurricane Katrina and while I was there I decided to go play some paintball. I contacted the local field and they said if you bring your own gun you can use your own paint. I was like, ok. I went to the local Wal-Mart there and they were totally sold out of paint, well almost. All they had was two 500 boxes of Wild Streak, four 200ct. of Scorch, and two box/plastic tubs of Zap Rec Series. I decided to go with the Zap because from experience with some of their other paint I thought these would be good also. Well, the first box/tub I grabbed was opened, I was like no way I'm not getting this one. However, since it was open, I wanted to check out these balls. The ones in this container were SUPER dimpled, SUPER oily, and smelled strange. I started to debate on whether I should get the un-opened one.
Unfortuantely I decided yes, I should have just bought the small amount of Scorch and try to fair off with it. So I got home and opened the box/tub.The same exact thing. I opened the bag to one of them and OMG it was terrible.They looked and felt like those bath balls you throw into a bath. You know what I am talking about? The little things that dislove and make the water smell good? Anyway, I was like holy crap! Me, being my stupid self, decided to load them up and try to shoot them. Should I rename my Spyder Imagine the blender? Thats what it looked like when I looked down into the breach. I didn't see any shell! All fill, nice and creamy and smelled really wierd.
Thats basically the end. I got real mad and threw them in the freezer then shot them all at a tree, and surprisingly the splattered!? WTF?
NEVER, EVER buy these. They suck beyond belief. They seriosuly reminded me of bath balls.

barrels that arent extra sensitive to not perfectly round, or nice paint
So me and my friends went paintballing yesterday, and we needed cheap paint. Went to academy, and for 30$, hey, why not. This paint is extremelly cheap, but has its fair share of problems. I didnt have any dimply paint, but around the seam of the ball, it was very easy to catch while feeling with a fingernail. Iono if that is bad, but i would think so, cuz it wasnt round around the seem, fairly flat. Also, of the 3 bags, 2 of them had 1 break, ok for crap rental guns, but if ur using ur own stuff and dont want it ruined, the entire bag may have been a waste. An ok product for a cheap price. I must say, dont kno if it was the tippmann or this paint, but very pleased that i didnt chop once (im very confident it didnt)
Completely forgot, paint has lots of bounces, and only breaks easily if hitting solid objects (bunkers). Fill is easily wipeable, and not much in paintball. Waasnt too bad for me as im not serios, but if you are thats a prob.
If you cant afford nice paint, get this. If your on a budget, or just wanna screw around with slingshot or not serious, etc, this is for you.

Hah. Very thick fill, if you wipe you are going to make a mess. :)
Whatever they put in to make it so thick causes it to be incredible sticky.
I bought the case of paint, and the bags of 500 were packed on top of one another so when i took them out the 3rd bag had a lot of dimpled balls and the 4th bag was probably 98% pimpled. The pimpled balls were rendered useless as far as accuracy goes, they curved and veered off in ever direction, sometimes taking such extreme breaks you couldnt follow the ball to its target. The first two bags had a few dimpled balls, and amazingly every bag had 0 broken balls. The unaffected balls shot suprisingly well, even for a 20 dollar bucket of paint. Items that were shot with the paintballs were ruined, if you have ever felt sap from a tree then you have an idea of what these paintballs are like. I took a pressure washer and tried to wash them off of my wooden fence a day after we played, and all i was doing was stripping wood.
I do not recommend this product. The thick fill and cheap price certainly are perks, but the sticky properties and bad accuracy are more than enough to keep me away from not only future zap rec balls, but zap paint as a whole. I am a woodsball player and I felt incredibly vulnerable for the 30 minutes I had a hopper full of these...I quickly decided to switch over to my backup paint. If you like woodsball and still require a budget, check out JT Tactical OD Green paintballs, I get them for about 20 bucks per 1000 paintballs and they are excellent.
Spyder Pilot (stock) with a Halo TSA LED Frontman hopper
Not very choppy
Well i took these outback and shot off a 100 rounds in semi i had no breaks. i decieded to shoot some 3shot and 6 shot with this paint i gave both modes 100 rounds of paint...no breaks well i filled my hopper 3 times with paint and put it on full auto and no breaks :) great paint
that was the day after i bought the paint and i shot 500 rounds
well i did the same test 1 week later and shot 500 rounds no breaks
so outta 1,000 rounds of Wal Mart paint i had no busts
Buy this paint...dont be worried its from Wal Mart but ohwell it shoots great
proto, tork, sports challet, marbs, brass eagle, and a bunch of that white box paint.

Anything that is big bore
:) Thick fill
:) A lot of fill
:) Breaks on target
:) Flys Good
:) Dosn't break in barrel(much)
:) FREE BUCKET
:( Dark paint and shell
:/ Big bore
:/ Broke in my barrel once(used one bucket)
:/ Bucket is 1500 paintballs?
---And that is about all that i can put that is worth mentioning---
This is good paint if you are low on money and just want to go rec balling. This has a nice dark blue shell and fill. One thing that i cant understand at all is the bucket of 1500, but hey, you get a free bucket! I give it an 8 due to the fact that it is dark and are no marbs.
JT Predators, Diablo Heat, X-Ball Bronze, Silver, Gold and a whole lot of whitebox crap
These are all good paint
Custom Pro E, Egg 2, 14" J&J Ceramic
Free bucket good for carrying stuff.
They Stink, Soft Shell which breaks easily
when I first started I didn't have much money so I went looking around for the best deal. I found these at Wal-Mart for $50 for 2000.When I took them out next weekend my friends couldn't believe how hard they were and how much they hurt.I don't play one shot because it is for people who are to afraid to get shot more than once, I play meat grinder where you play till your out and can get hit as many times as you like until the game is over.I shot one of my friends five times in one game and the welts were huge.So soon everybody had these and we have been happy with them ever since.
UPDATE: For some reason Zap suddenly stopped making these good balls and started selling very soft and crappy balls under the same name. This pissed me and my friends off because we bought a few thousand and found out that they weren't the paint they used to be. I would just like to say to Zap what happened to the quality paint. You have screwed over and let down many woodsball/recball players everywhere.
Zap has gone from quality to crap for no reason. I will never buy a Zap product again because they screwed me and many others over by cutting quality.

Thick Shells, so it travels through brush easier then other paint
Leaves nice welts :P
Thick shells, so it bounces a heck of a lot more, hard to break
Well, thick shell, thats all you need to know. You can either look at it from a good perspective (read above) or a bad perspective (read above). I once hit my friend 3 times in a row, all in the same string and none broke....But they did hurt him. Another friend of mine misfired my gun inside my house, hit my drywall, and dented it....its strong. Good ball if you like to hurt more then eliminate, but if your serious...dont be shooting 30$/case, when its that cheap its not good.
I use this when messing around in backyard, but when serious I would use a better paintball that breaks easier...Nothings perfect, this is far from it

cheap, Thick-skinned. durable, etc.
OFten blow up in the hopper
These balls are okay, but nothing spectacular. They work quite well, but for some unknown reason they seem to like exploding inside the hopper, even without an agitator. But when they do hit, they hit hard, which is fun, 'cause you get to see the other guy hop around like a jackrabbit on steroids. Hurts like hell to be shot with one, though.
These balls are good, but try the extreme sports series for the extra ten bucks and give yourself a real treat.
Wild Streak (CRAP NEVER BUY THEM)
Diablo Dusk (Pretty Good)
Big Ball (The best)
C H E A P!!!
dont curve a lot
dont bust in barrel
They have one colored shells if there has to be a weakness
but none really.
I saw these at acadamy for $30 for 2000 so i had to pick them up. When i got home i still had some wild streak paintballs left so i put a few of those in the hopper and a some of the ZAP. The difference was tremendous!!! The wild streak curved and had a slimey, dark fill. When the ZAP came out they flew straight and had a thick, bright fill.
If you dont mind using seconds and you need cheap balls BUY THESE!!!
Bucket Smells Like A$$
Occasional "mis-shaped" paintballs
Bounce A bit
CHEAP- This stuff is very cheap, infact the cheapest paint that I have ever seen ( I had a cupon that got me 1500 painballs for $15, thats a cent a paintball).
SHOOTS STRAIGHT- With my J & J Ceramic barrel the balls shoot perfect could'nt be any better. I shot this tiny 6'' diameter bucket from about 30 feet away I shot about 20 balls they all landed right on top of each other every time!
BUCKET- This bucket not only can hold your paintballs but also pretty much any other $hit that you have.....once the smell is out of course.
BUCKET ODOR- When I first open up this bucket it smells extremly acrid, kind of like plastic and farts.
MIS SHAPED BALLS- I know these paintballs sound perfect so far but the one major flaw would be that occasionally you will come across a ball that looks like it has a tumor jutting out from the side of it. These paintballs are shootable but they are incredibly less accurate.
BOUNCERS- There is a huge variety of paintballs, some may be extremely brittle(good) nd others may be as hard as a rock (bad). For example I usually shoot off my porch and shoot at my tree and most of the paintballs break agianst the tree and there are others that will just bounce right off the tree.
In conclusion these paintballs probably have the best quality///price ratio out of all other paintballs. BUY THESE PAINTBALLS. THEY ARE THE BEST FOR THE PRICE. These are great for just going out back and shooting the crap out of your tree without having to worry about the high price. I am giving these a 10 because these are the best paintballs for the price out there.
