None, they are terrible paintballs
There are not any redeeming factors for this paint at this price
Did I mention bounces
Big name no game
I bought this paint thinking it would be somewhere close to the Standard Evil paint, what a joke. The midevil crap is almost as expensive but not nearly as good. If you have any doubts, I shot an Oak tree with knarly rough bark from about 120 feet away and it bounced off an Oak tree!!!!! what's up with that????? I shot this skinny guy too, three times in the leg, all three were bounces. Call me foolish but I assumed that when you pay a premium price you would get a premium product...... Apparently NOT. The paint also had very visible seams and was dimpled I can honestly say I will NEVER buy midevil again. Even the accuracy was only marginal definitely not anything special, it does not shoot any better than PMI big ball, but at least big ball is cheap.
I would strongly advise you NOT to buy midevil, you get a low quality paint at a tournament paint ball price. wow what a deal......NOT
Spyder Imagin 04, Razzor barrel, Dagger Trigger, clamp feedneck, CO2 gas :(,
Spyder MR-1, barrel grip, MP-5 front sight, home-modified grip, home-modified skeleton stock
loads of dimples
For all i know it could be my barrel, or my friend's barrels (there was like 4 barrels), and alot of them curved. idk how to say alot of it curved in 50 words. bujt my expierience with midevil wasnt so good, but when i switched back to regular evil paint it was perfect, i didnt like the bright/sparkley shells with the one i got, but thats a personal dislike so its not going to effect my rating.
Eh they were alright, like feild quality paint, but alot of balls curved. i have yet to figure out the caliber size of my barrel >=/,

SP Ion with a Virtue board, superfly bolt, and a Linear Barrel.
Aruound .689 or .688
-Maybe 5 in 100 have weird dimples.
- They kind of smell funny
I use this paint amost everytime I play and they are just great. They are affordable, which is why I use them, and Ive only chopped 2 balls out of about 20,000. They have a bright fill, and a thin shell so they almost never bounce off a target. I also like the colors, the're just so I can see where I shoot but the person Im shooting at cant see the paint. Our paintball clinic uses theese also which I guess is the sign of a good paintball. Even still, some had dimples the size of the Grand Canyon.
Very good paint, if your on a budget and want to get good paint for the money.

Well simple don't use these for an actual match. I'm going to make this short: They bounce. While nice paint they are expensive unless you hit someone on the nee cap or mask they won't break. But I have a raccoon problem so I use them as a humain way to get rid of them.
EDIT: they chop in my DM6 due to the fact that there a few that arent even at all round.
Don't use this if you expect to play and win a match. It's to expnesive to use for fun, but it can be a humain way to get rid of raccoon/apposims

Almost all of the popular paintballs (marballizer, zap dbx, pmi premium, afterburners, etc.)
PMI Pure Energy 48/3000 N2 Tank
J&J Ceramic Barrel
Very brittle shell
i got 500 rounds of these at my local paintball field, and i was very impressed at their medium cost, yet the performed very well, the paint always broke on target, not in your barrel, it went straight, only a few curves, but those were mostly because of my crappy barrel. And the fill was very thick and virtually unwipable, i got one on me and it wouldn't even come off if i squirted it with water.
You get alot of bang for your buck, get these if you don't want to go spending $70 on the best paintballs there are
ION , NDZ fire body, CP barrel, QEV, CCM no-rise feedneck
Shell, color, mostly fill.
Shell can be a little thick.
This paint is top of the line. I would shoot this all the time if i had the moola. The shell can be a little thicker but i like that. the color lets you shoot using your site. I shot a guy with this stuff and it was a picture perfect break. the fill was so thick it looked like the pictures you only see in magazines. All that paint flying up and around the person. EVIL has a good product here.
Great pain, if had to choose a type of paint, i would choose these over everything else.
Black Ops Premium, Marbs, PMI Premium, All Stars, various others.
Bone stock 98c, and MT-66 CQB
Shell color (silver)
Shell seams, the fill is a little thin, chop easy, dimples
I shot 2 cases of these this past weekend. They were very fresh, I helped unload the delivery the day prior. The first thing I noticed was the seam in the shell when I opened the box. There were quite a few dimpled balls, but I admit it was only in the 60's. I think I had about 30 barrel breaks in 2 cases. I didn't care for that. The shell color was silver that was nice, but doesn't affect the performance.
I wouldn't buy it personally, unless like this weekend it was the tourney paint. I prefer the shell on Black Ops Premium 200% better. If I found this stuff for the right price I might get it, if Black Ops wasn't available.
reds clamping feed neck
bullet drop with on off
72ci 3000psi tank
The ones that actually work
I got this paint for a gift. it worked good for the first 2 bags. it went where i wanted it to go. than when i took about 2 weeks off playen, i don't know what happened. i rotated the paint about once every 2 days. i kept it in the bag and sealed. it stayed out of the sunlight and heat. then when i went out to play again, no mater what barrel and insert i used, it wouldn't shoot where i wanted it to go. i ended up chopping a few of em. so it may have been a bad shelf life or just had some paint problems. the fill itself is nice and bright, but for the price, i think it was poo. i get better performance out of blue streak. im not comparing it to my first game just the second when the crap flew, literally.
I think its good only if ur gona use em up that game. also check with the person selling it, if u can, and see how old it is.
Works very well with CP 14' 1-piece Classic .689 good paint/bore match
Breaks on target
Ignore the 1/10 reviews. Obviously these people got either a bad batch or are just straight up idiots. Take care of your paintballs and they'll take care of you. I prefer RPS All-Star, however I don't find them often and they are a bit pricier than the Midevils. These don't save as well as the All-Stars, but with a fresh case the performance is comparable.
Great ball at a decent price. I will buy again.

Zap-worse Scorch- Worse 32 Degrees Team Colors- worse but almost as good
Spyder Imagine, Lapco Twist Lock Feed, ACS Delrin Bolt, Shocktech Shim and Spring Kits
I recommend the Custom Products 1 Piece Classic, a J&J or any barrel really.
-Breaks on Impact
-Hard to wipe
I didnt really see any
These paintballs are pretty good. I opened up the box and there were no breaks. I got them home and I tested them out. They seemed like they shot pretty good.. I played with them and they shot very well and the were really accurate. They are really round and the shoot very straight..
Buy these paintballs as long as you are not on a tight budget. They work very well with almsot every gun(Dont use them in a Spyder Imagine)
