Experience:

Products Used:
Heat, Whitebox
Marker Setup: Angel A4 Fly
Strengths: Price, $35
Accurate with the right barrel size
Quality paint, real bright
Weaknesses: Not brittle at all
Review: I played with these and ppl I played with would tell me I hit them 3-4 times, maybe more sometimes without getting a break. For the price it shoots straight and all, but its not breaking for me at least. Im gonna try some more paint around 40 bucks I guess, but thats the only real problem I found with this paint
Conclusion: Good for the price, if your tight and dont mind if you get out even though you shoulda got break, go ahead and get it

Barrels:
I've just used a stock barrel on my a-5 and they shot pretty good
Strengths: Bust on contact
bright fill (i like the yellow)
shoot fairly good
Weaknesses: A little pricy for the quality
Thin shell
Review: I recieved a box of these when i ordered my 98 custom (which i no longer have because i got an excellent deal on an A-5). I was glad to get them because diablos are good paintballs. I was impressed by their performance out of a tippmannn 98, but i did find that i could buy Scorch paintballs at wal-mart for a much cheaper price, and get as good or better quality. The main thing i liked about this paint was the BRIGHT yellow fill, I have seen other brands of yellow paint, but this was the brightest and hardest to wipe. The brittle shells was bad for woodsball, but i like it for speedball because there are no limbs to chop your paint.
Conclusion: Overall Formula 13s have their goods and bads, if they were cheaper i would buy them over Scorch, but they aren't, so i give them an 8

Strengths: USED to be good paint.
Weaknesses: They have changed their formula!
Review: I've bought Diablo Formula 13 for years. And I was always satisfied with it. I use it as a lower end paint (because I'm super picky about balls and usually play with Evil for important games) when I'm just having a friendly rec ball game or bush-ball.
I've always been satisfied with it, you can get some really decent prices for it online and it really delivers for the price tag. That was in past years however.

Last week I received a case of the NEW Diablo formula 13 paint. It comes in a new ugly box and at first i thought i got the wrong paint but on further inspection it was in fact diablo just in an ugly box. So I opened it and my jaw dropped. These balls are egg shaped at best, and for some reason the outer shell has a funny texture to it. It is NOT smooth.
The shell itself is actually decent and the fill is actually thicker than the old formula but the bottom line is THE BALLS ARE EGG SHAPED. They curve like boomerangs. I thought to myself "Maybe I just somehow got an old crate..." because that's what they look like; old paint. But no they are not old, because i went with a friend to buy paint and he bought a case right off a delivery pallet and it was the same thing.

Why do paint companies just up and decide to change formulas? To save money i guess. It is the equivalent of what JT did to their paint, if anyone remembers when JT paint was some of the sexiest stuff on the market, and now is one of the worst.

Conclusion: I will NEVER buy Diablo again and I have been buying it for years.

Sorry to see you go DIablo, we had some good times. Sorry you had to sell out.

Barrels:

Strengths: Good fill
Didn't seem to break as easily as others in cold weather.
Weaknesses: Dimples - TONS of dimples
Somewhat expensive for such low-quality paint
Review: I used these last weekend after having issues with shooting Evil in cold weather.

My friend picked up two cases of these for about $50 each at the local paintball shop. I picked up two bags at the field for about $20.

We figured we'd try a different paint since Evil kept breaking because it was colder out. This paint was definately not as prone to breaking in cold weather but it has a weakness that I don't think is worth the $45 (average) per case.

Firstly, about 70%-85% of the paint from the two cases my friend purchased at the shop (a respectible, single-owner shop, someone who actually cares about their stuff) had dimples on them. They were large enough that I took notice immediately.

The dimples absolutly failed to work in our flatline barrels. A spinning paintball with one flat side is GOING to break (in the barrel).

Firing these paintballs through straight / smoothbore barrels was fine - no breaks.

The two bags I purchased on the field must have been newer since their dimples weren't as large or pronounced. This leads me to believe that the paint in general - is poor quality.
Conclusion: For $45 i'd rather purchase some other decent paint - without dimples.

5 out of 10 since they worked fine in straight barrels and but broke in flatline barrels because of the dimples. Price is a little too high for that kind of quality.

Strengths: I can see them easily
Weaknesses: They do not break!!!
Review: I really didn't like using these paintballs!!! I would not tell anyone to buy these paintballs. I made the mistake on getting them because they where the only one that the aintball shop had left. Me and my wife had a horible time using these paintballs. I shot a guy 6 times and nothing broke on him. It became really frustrating when we where getting killed because the guys we thought we had got out came and killed us.
Conclusion: I will never buy them again. I have some extra, does any one want them?
