(on the day)
Inferno Field MK1
VL200 Gravity fed hopper
The paint ran through the standard Infeno barrel quite well....
High Break Rate
Trackable (Can see it in flight)
Thick Fill (Yellow is bright)
None on the day
Well I played a walk-on with this paint and it was consistant all day. I had no breakage problems (in the hopper, barrel or pots). The paint brakes quite well, it isnt like rubber, I did only have a few bounces, but that happens, could have been the angle it was shot, surface ect.
The price was good £30 for a box of 2000, and you get a real good quality for the price.
All in all I've only tryed it for one day, but it was a trouble free one where the paint was concerened, so I will deffinantly buying it again. Its reasonablely priced aswell and its good value for money, so if your looking for paint that is of a good standard I would reccomend these.

These balls are accurate. Super accurate. I love this paint. It is the best paint for my gun. It is awsome those snipers out there. It is awsome for hitting the little kid in the back that no one else can hit. The paint is so bright that no one can wipe. It is a wipers worst nightmare. I love it.
32* whisper (yes, it actually worked in the whisper)
Good shell, thick fill, not oily
Paint isnt the brightest
Ive used many different types of draxxus/diablo paint and i found all of them to have some really great qualities that made me wnt to continue with their use, but almost all had some type of problem with my barrel or my gun. This changed when i picked up formula 13. I have had no problems with this paint in any of my barrels (yes, even the whisper) and have never chopped or broke one ball. Ovr all i am extremely pleased with tis paint. Go buy some.
Breaks on target,not barrel
Seems to have more paint in the balls
Paint is a bit on the thin side
Wont go through weeds like midnights
These paintballs are really good for woods play.They are reliable like other draxxus and diablo paintballs.They seem to weigh more than others, I noticed this when i picked up a full box.The extra weight makes them hold their velocity better, giving you a little more range.The rain has less effect on these than others, so if your playing in more humid weather, Formula 13's are great.Paint is runny, not a thick paint, but that just makes seeing your mark on someone easier(especially goggle shots). The shell is a little thinner than midnights, so they don't go through thick weeds and brush as easy.
Buy these paintballs if you want to try another great diablo product.They are good for woods play and tournament.

The box is cardboard and you can recycle it.
More dimples than most golfballs, thin pastel pink fill was almost non-existant
Bought a case of this stuff at the local field. It was NOT old. EVERY SINGLE ball had craters in it, seems were uneven anf they had barely any fill in them. The fill, what little there was, was pastel pink and not bright or highly visible by any means. TheInk'd we were shooting out performed this by FAR.
Don't buy it for the bname, poor quality control and a WEAK fill
I shoot xball alot. Xball i would say is much better.
Havent actually taken these out to play with yet. They have a nice shell. They arnt the most accurate ball every. It's alright though just for practice. Good seams on it and no dents. Horrible, horrible, horrible fill. I got a case of pink fill. Wow this is the worst fill i have ever seen. I took about 20 balls and went into my backyard and shot at a tree. I hit the tree everytime and i could see the ball hitting the tree, but no paint was coming out. I though....odd. I walked up to the tree and there was a very tiny pink spot. The ball justhit the tree and the paint didnt stick or anything. It's extremelly watery. I couldnt even see the ball break when it hit the tree. Id like to see a better fill then these paintballs would be much better.
just about any field paint, white box, etc can compare. however this product did impress me(see reviews) compared to other field paint i've shot.

Might be on the smaller side of the .68 tolerance
has a noticeable curve
My friend was moving out of the barracks, and gave me this case of paint, i've never shot diablos before, so didn't really know what to expect from them.
Did a check on the paint, unlike other paints i've shot, they weren't overly "wet" or oily, was slightly on the powdery side.
Did not have any noticeable defects in the paint, dimples, cracks etc.
Started shooting, noticed a curve to some of the shots, not anything crazy, but enough to make corrective targeting. others shot straight and accurately. perhaps its my barrel, but there seemed like a few just dropped through the barrel, and compared to a box of zaps i shot a while back, seemed slightly smaller on the .68 tolerance scale. +/- .01. thats the only thing i could think of really.(i took a tech math, so its not like im pulling a number out of nowhere)
The fill on the blue/greens was an almost flourescent yellow. bright, and noticeable. Paint seemed to have a decent thickness, not runny or thin like some of the cheaper paint i've shot over the years(walmart).
The balls themselves have a thicker shell, so they arent as brittle, i dropped one as a test, and it bounced well without a dimple, but broke with ease on the seams when dropped from about an inch higher.
Overall, its a great box of paint, for a free box im not going to complain.
Great quality paint all around.
Slightly smaller ball, but good for rec and regular field use.
due to the curve in the shots, i was slightly disappointed, due to it being a better quality ball. but with a reg/stabilizer setup, no velocity spikes and pressure was stable(+/- 6FPS), with Co2 i could understand the curving, but it was probably due to the size being slightly smaller, i don't have an evil pipe kit or similar to test that theory, perhaps somebody else does and can test that out. will edit if i can test it out again this weekend.(either buy a kit or borrow a bore sizer)
i give it a 9/10, im not going to grade too heavily on the minor inconveniences. it broke on impact, and was visible at a distance. really thats what you want to happen. everything else is just circumstantial at best.

not very round
doesn't always break
I have shot people in the top of the head and the ball didnt break. The shell is kind of pimply if i had to describe it. I have started playing with a pump and the accuracy i need to make every shot count sucks. I guess its not bad for field paint but i like every one of my shots to count so i am willing to spend the extra couple of bucks to get a better paint. More accurate = less shooting

Looks good, breaks ok, flies pretty straight
Doesnt break enough, not used to that.
After playing the last 2 days at 2 different fields, one in Panama City, and the other in Mobile AL, I have been let down by these. I bought them because I was playing with my buddies in a few different fields for fun. My biggest thing is they dont break enough for the money range. I normally throw RPS Premium around but thought that I would try the Formula 13's because of these fields higher prices. For the most part it did just fine and I got many kills out of them. But when the time counted I didnt get the kills which lead to my being hit. I layed 3 balls on a guy while going for the bunker and not one broke, he though spun around and landed 2 on me which broke ( he had diff paint). He did admit that I did hit him but none broke:( Then again, today, I used them and landed a few on my buddy in woods ball and he said he was getting hits but none broke, the one that eventually broke hit his hopper but being a dork he wiped so we could keep gunning it out! lol The shot wasnt a good fill enough to let the ref see it in time.
I would say its an ok paint, looks great, flew pretty good too, however the breaks ended up costing me on the field as well as the not so thick paint. Maybe they are getting cheaper now in the years since its been out and the previous reviews, however I am just letting you know what I go by in my experience with 2 different fields with different supplies of paint.
