A dependable paint from DraXxus Paintball that wil not break in any barrel and will break hitting the intended target. A good quaility paint for your marker. Is also a premium choice for gamesfields and pro shops.
The DraXxuS Blaze Paintballs are newer, so they should be commonly available.
No barrel residue, very superior shell, breaks on target, not in gun.
After exploring different types of paint a few years ago i found that draxxus was so far the best paint, and most affordable for its quality, although i think there is better paint, like empire fuel, draxxus hell fire, dynasty paint. this is stil a very good and affordable product that works well.
I think that this product is the best paint for its price.
Nice and acurate, good bright fill, brittle, acurate
Not to much
Very nice paint. it was feild paint for 45 bucks and some of the best feild paint at the price i have ever used. all the balls were very round and flew very straight in my edge. ball on ball. also, therer werent too many bounces. maybe 2 the whole day out of my group i was playing with. i did not have any break on ppl, so all of mine were eliminations (all i care about). the only time i got a bounce was on my dye jersey on the shoulder padding (gotta love those dye C4 jerseys, i get atleast a bounce a day off the padding). the fill was bright. not the thickest fill but nice. i had one barrel break, but that happens to everyone. so 1 misshaped paintball out of 2000. but this paint cleaed out of my barrek quick. (some really thick fill paints are a mother to get out of your barrel). the fill was not too thin however. great paint.
Great paint. probably teh best paint i have ever gotten for 45 bucks a case.

Well, this was the paint I had to use at the event. I bought a box of 2000 for $50. When I opened the first bag, I noticed there were no balls broken or oil/sweat on them. I loaded them in my hopper and took a few test shot, worked great. Only thing I did not like about these is THEY SMELL SO BAD! While it isn't a weakness, it is just something I did not like. I swear, I could smell them through my Eggy. I do not know of anyone who sniff their pods/hopper, but I did and it smelt.
All experienced players know that paint is extremely important. For anyone just starting out in the sport I'll give you these words of advice....."YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR". I got a case of Blaze paintballs for about $51 bucks at a local paintballing store, I'd tried a couple other brands of paint, but I had read reviews about paint and realized that it was time to start buying decent paint. The Blaze paintballs have been the most dependable paintballs that I've played with. After crappy paint for about a month, Blaze was a welcome relief. No more cleaning out my barrel with a squeegee while praying that the people bunkering me don't just rush me and tear me apart. First game I played I found that my shots were going straighter and weren't breaking in my gun AT ALL. The paintballs break pretty easily on opponents, not in the gun. That's the way it's supposed to be, not worrying about cleaning and just giving you the chance to play. It should be noted, however, that many of my friends said that they had quite a few bounces with the paint. A couple bounces is nothing really considering that it won't break in the barrel, but it would have ended the games a lot faster if they had broke.......
All in all a great paint for players that don't want that crappy paint that breaks all the time. Affordable too, so it's a great mix of performance and price.
A great paint for playing with friends or at a field. Might want to get higher quality for big tournaments however. I'm giving it a nine because it is prone to bounce. I would recommend this in a heart beat.
Bright thick fill
Breaks on target
Chopped when using small bore but can be fixed with larger bore size
I used one case of this in a game of woodsball. I was using a J&J ceramic barrel which has a small bore size. I played all day long and had about 7 chops which was probably because of the small bore size I was using on my barrel. Other than that is was nice paint. Well priced around 50 bucks where I got it. It was very accurate paint and I didn't have any dimples that I saw. I has a nice thick bright fill and perfect shell also.
No Dimples or flats on my use
The bags they came in were hard to open
These are sold at my woods field for about 47 dollars and work pretty well for their cheapest paint. The bags aren't the same as other like a big plastic bag sealed at the ends. This has a designed bag and is sealed about 20% down from the top so then when u make a hole the pbs come out like half way down. These shot straight and worked really well. But of course I was using a Phantom so it went pretty straight.
Hardly noticeable seam
Great paint, I suggest the pink. Price is average, but worth it for these. The seam is not visible, and is hard to find even if you are looking for it. The paint isn't runny, and cannot be easily wiped off. For my barrel, they worked great, and i got no dimples. All breaks I have had so far have been due to my gravity powered hopper and lack of CO2.

Except for a sweating problem, non really
I have used these throughout my entire career. Even when I started with my Viewloader Orion i used this paint. The eyes in my Ion catch it no problem. The shell and the fill are very visible, so you know when you hit somebody. If you have a problem with sweating though, just put them in an airtight zip-loc bag for a few days and leave it. They will be ready to go. They leave absolutely no residue either. If you have heard about the barrel on the Ion, then you know that it has a mirror finish inside the barrel. At the end of the day, I looked inside the barrel after shooting these all day, no residue at all. Hey, I like the stock barrel too. Play with it sometimes.
I think that this ball is good through any gun from low to high-end.

Good for rec players
Draxxus Blaze paintballs are good for the rec player, both because of the price and because they are not brittle.
These can take a bit of jostling around in transit, and you do not have to be as careful with these as you do with more expensive, higher-end paintballs.
I did not have problems with dimples with these paintballs. When I ordered, I did have a ball broken in the bag, but I shall assume that this is the fault of UPS. When fresh, this paint shoots well.
As a rec type of paint, the size of these balls is good. Blaze fits most inexpensive aftermarket barrels well, and will only cause barrel breaks if you have a small-bored barrel like a Boomstick.
The fill isn't the greatest, but for rec paint you can't expect much better. You don't really need a super thick, impossible-to-wipe fill unless you play tournaments anyway.
At approximately $45 a case, these are neither cheap nor expensive.
Because of the hard shell, the balls are less likely to break on target. However, it isn't like they never break either.
I recommend Draxxus Blaze paintballs for the average rec player who wants something better than cheap, crappy white box paint. Most any paintballs by Draxxus are decent, and Blaze holds true to this. I have had few barrel breaks with this paint. Though not the cheapest, it is better to spend the extra $5 and shoot paint that is good quality rather than be cheap and frustrated with crappy paint all day.

F4 Illustrator with a few upgrades like new bolt and barrel.
Strong balls, Do good in my gun.
None that ive noticed exept every once in awhile a ball will bust
Good balls, Do what they're supposed to do. I've only used three kinds of balls in my gun and these work the best. Like I said ealier, I have a decked out F4 Illustrator with very high pressure and these balls don't break as easy so I'm happy with them. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
