Any good barrel, use a stock if your gona practice with these.
Dont chop that much
Visible in air
Choped a few in my xcel barrel
Before i bought these ($30ish for 2000) i used draxxus midnights, the midnights are about teh same as the diablo heats only midnights bounce more and are a little bit inaccurate. Diablo heats are pretty accurate paintballs, out of 2000 using my trilogy comp i only choped about 5-10 of them. Right before i ran out of these i choped a few and it totaly skrewd up my dye xcel barrel, curved like crazy..
These paintballs are very accurate theyll hit there target allmost everytime but If u shoot 13+ bps, every 3 or 5 shots will curv like mad going completly off target kinda like zap sports..
If any of you have ever used draxxus midnights youll no that they only go to about 60 feet before they decend. The diablo heats go about 85, decend around 90 and land at 100..
update- with the mad curving these balls do almost everyshot they barly go 50 feet..
Shell is pretty thick, will rarely chop in gun or bounce off people. Its easy to see in air so u can check where your shooting if you dont have sights..
The fill is o.k, its not to thick, but not to light, easy to see the splats, some jerseys/clothes absorb the paint which isint good..
These are ok paintballs, best for practice, can skrew up your gun or barrel if you chop too much. curve like mad at times

I really like these paintballs and ever since i started to use them i dont thing ill use any other kind....these paintballs never break in my hopper. they do not warp or expand in the box. my friends use the same type of paint and when they shoot me, afterwards is easy to clean off my equipment
I recommend these paintballs because of quality and the price
Tippmann A-5, e-grip, shocktech superfly bolt, and 47 3000 psi compressed air tank
um my stock barrel on my A-5 works perfect with this paint its so accurate and out of 2000 paintballs i had 1 break. But i still saw no difference in accuracy.
Not a thick fill
Or very bright
These paintballs are great i never noticed any problem with them like what other people are saying. And the only time i chopped a ball was when I used my paintballs again after 3 monthes of sitting in my room. But when they were fresh I never had one chop. I really dont know what else to say except that they are also very cheap. at my local shop its 36.99 for 2000 so there really cheap.
just give them a try. you might liek them you might not but I know that i like them and i will be buying them for sure. I give them a 98 because of the thin fill, and sometimes they dont break.

Shell is thick but not to thick.
Pretty good fill
Easy to see
Sometimes there are very small dimples.
I started using this paint about a year ago and it is a pretty good cheap paint. I mainly only buy this because it is cheap, and pretty good quality. i hardly ever chop with my ACS bolt while using this paint, but it almost always breaks on target. The fills are not that bad either. They are usually thick enough to not be wiped, but its not to thick making any chops i do have easy to clean up, and it comes out of clothes easily.
I would reccomend this paint if you can get it for the reasons I stated above.
This paint tends to be on the small size, so use a .685-.689 bore.
-Cheap in price.
-Excellent for practice.
-Nice fill, nice shape.
Well, it is rec style paint, so it's not the most consistent in size.
Awesome paint for practice's. This is what we usualy use at practice... it goes for about $40-45 bucks a case. Not a good tourny ball though... the shape can be inconsistent, but overall not that bad. Very good for the price you pay. One of the best practice paints I've used.
Good practice paint, one of the best. Cheap in price, nice fill, usualy nice shape, try it out.

Ok story time
It was before the round my teammate needed air so i chaleged the other 2. It was a 1 on 2. I was up agaisnt a shocker an a ion. I was desprite they were closing in. I was in the center around mid field. I ran for the snake. I got shot about 7 times not 1 ball broke. I made it to the snake i was using blaze. I took out 1 of the ion but i got shot in the mask by the shocker an i was out. But i used this paint later that day because i ran out of blaze and it shot straight, but it was really brittle. 1 or 2 balls were dimpled.
doesnt break in gun
doesnt break on target very easily
fill is kinda weak
Good paint if your on a tight budget. Its decent paint. If u cant afford this is anything else this isnt bad paint. But hurts when you get shot with it. :p ill give it a 7.5

Small bore barrels. .689 was almost too big.
Didn't break in marker(s)
Consistency (some balls had dimples)
Mystery fill (see review)
Not bad stuff for $40/case. I didn't count but I would say maybe 10 or so out of the case (2,000) I saw had dimples or a flat spot. The paint was broken into 500 round bags, as most are, but one bag had some oily orange droplets in it but I couldn't find a broken ball.
Unlike a previous review, I didn't find the paint shell to match the fill. I had olive green shells with orange fill.
The bore of this paint is small! My SLG was using the stock .690 barrel, and I used a JJ Ceramic (twist lock) .689 barrel on my Automag as it was the best fit of the barrels I had with me. In both cases, the paint would easily go through the barrel with minimal effort. Even so, the paint flew straight at short-medium range with some curve at max range, but I'm not sure how much of that is due to the barrel bore vs the paintball having a dimple or flat spot, etc.
As a comparison of the ball size; the Marballizer I bought at the same store the same day was boring out at about .694.
In terms of shell durability, the shell seemed pretty solid. I had no breaks using the Automag or Proto SLG and the paint didn't break in my pod pack while I was running around either. I think this paint has a thicker shell in comparison to some higher end paints as it took some effort to break one in my hand and I had a few instances where it seemed to take 2-3 shots (at range) for the ball to break on a player. I attribute some of this to having a low field limit at 280 fps.
Bottom line if you're going to be playing rec and playing a lot of smaller fields (small wooded fields, airball, speedball, hypberball, etc) then this paint is very good for the price. Definitely not a premium or tournament paint but great for casual play.
Tippmann 98 custom with 16 inch barrel and expansion chamber
Accurate,cheap, not many dimples, good color
The diablo Heat paintballs are quality paintballs and i recommend them to any paintballer who is looking for good paintballs. Unfortunatly, these paintballs are not perfect (like anything) and have dimples if you leave them for about a week without being shifted. These balls are okay, but i suggest stinger paintballs to all of you but if these balls are all you can get your hands on, they will do just fine.
Bye these paintballs if you can't get Stingers, because i think these are the second best.

Some broke in gun. Gets majorly screwed up if any paint in barrel.
I liked these paintballs for the most part. At very end of game i broke one which messed with gun. Got paint in barrel at beginning which screwed with the accuracy. When barrel clean, very accurate, and broke almost every time. Very bright fill colors to ensure that the target knows when they've been hit
White box is probably the closest in price that I use regularly.
Dye UL 4 backs for best match on paint.
This paint is not real large bore but I over bored it because there were so many egg shaped balls that when I bored it correctly I'd get atleast a barrel break a hopper.
Not notice alot of bounces (for a 30$ case)
Many more deformed, dimpled and egg shaped balls than is acceptable
The fill was watery
If your reading this review your probably looking for what I was looking for. A cheap case of paint that was good enough quality for practices, or maybe some rec ball. I have to say this paint was far below my standards. I normaly practice and run drills with white box or some type of seconds which is not the best paint and is similarly priced, but I will never buy heat again.
Over all the paint was not horrible for the price. I would say about 90% of the balls were acceptable FOR THE PRICE not to say that those 9/10 of the shots that were decent shot strait because it is cheap paint. They just shot strait enough for the price I paid.
The real problem with this paint is that the 10% of it that is deformed enough to notice, is completely horrible. I had to go through and pick out atleast 20 balls from the case I used that there was no way they would of made it through my barrel they were too horribly deformed even with a pretty large over bore.
I managed to catch many of the ones that would of never made it out of the barrel, or the breech which was a pain in the ass. Yet it still jammed My velocity horribly, atleast once a pod for a noticable ammount of time not the little mini reverse jams that take half a second.
A full on shake the hopper or it might not be able to clear it jam, My Velocity rarely ever does this.
There were atleast 4 that exploded before they made it past the detents, again this never happens to me.
I over bored the hell out of the paint but before I did I was swabbing my barrel every 100 or so rounds.
BUY WHITE BOX INSTEAD. It cost a couple bucks more sometimes, at my local shop heat is 30 white box is 35 it is far more than worth it.
