JT Evolve - horribly smaller (~.680)
PMI Premium - inconsistant sizes (egged, warped)
Evil - same size (~.686), better breakage
LP Spyder Xtra (I've spent way too much time customizing it but it runs 285fps @ 260psi)
-Machined body, bolt, striker, feedneck and grip frame
OTP G3 Barrel Kit
I used a .686 barrel insert and that fit about perfect.
Pretty uniform roundness
Hard shell (also a weakness)
Hard shell causes quite a few bounces
I always wanted to try out some Core paint to see how it performed; since it is quite cheap I would love it to work great. (On sale for $35 locally!) So I finally got to try it out and found it to be a nice size of about .686 and all the balls I looked at were quite round, no deformations.
While I was using it I did notice that it got quite a few bounces unfortunately, this was definitely the only thing that I had to complain about it all day. I was shooting about 280 fps and the field limit was 300, so I think if I was shooting it at 300 I would have had less bounces.
I think this is great paint for the money. I at least had a great experience with it and will definitely use it in the future if I can find it cheap.
9 out of 10

Any thing that has a medium bore, .688-.691
Brittle enough shell to break on your friends, not in your gun
Havent found one
I was looking for descent paint to play with friends with and was recommended the premium over the action. I bought these from www.paintballonline.com and was told that it was a good paint. Now it is my favorite paint for the price. I paid $45 a case. I normally use Anarchy but that is $10 more. It didnt break in my gun (I also have the level 10) nor in my barrel. I didnt have any bounces. If you get it and you dont like it. I would try it again and just make sure that it is fresh. All paint gets bad when it gets old. This is my new favorite paint!
If you are looking for a good paint. This is the stuff.
Spyder Fenix ups are: Fireball Mountain delrin trigger, 50g trigger switch, delrin acs bolt, Trinity low rise clamping feedneck and Maddmann rocket valve. 68ci 4500psi Java nitro tank and Ricochet Apache and Halo hopper and J&J Edge barrel kit
These balls will fit any standard stock barrel ive ever used and i use my j&j Edge kit with it and works like a dream
Long shelf life
Shell is a little thick but just get some extra shots in to make sure
I pretty much wont use any other paint besides marbalizers unless im at a tournament and have to ive used them for 4 years and havent had a single one break in the barrel so far well except when i forgot to switch bore sizes with my barrel kit... anyway good paint good price very reliable
Blue SP ion PE 45/45 Core 3piece, HaloB w/ rip and vic board Check it sure fit neck. QEV. Maxflo reg
Any 689 barrel
About as round as it gets.
I compared this stuff with PMI premium and i was suprised with the results. this paint was more consistant, shot straigher and broke on targets better. i shot half a case of both and i got one barrel break with the PMI premium and none with the Core. i would take this over premium anyday.
Allstars, Marblizers, Evil, all compare to this product in price and quatily
Psyco Cocker Clone, 46/3000 cross fire, stock barrel and a Ten Round Clip
Evil Driver, ultra-light boomstick, my stock barrel
The shell thickness and quality of gelatin is perfect,
the fill is hard to wipe
Can be hard to find,
expensive, but well worth it
I started using this paint because my local field is field paint only. Core being the only brand they carried. At first i was rather Unimpressed, At $65 a case of 2000. me and my friend started talking to the other walk-on's, it turned out that this paint had been working very well in everyone gun. after a few games i had to agree that this had been the best "field" paint of any field had ever used, this field had used Big Ball or worse White box, in the past.
Awesome paintballs, worth the price around $50 at a shop or online.
