JT tactical camo paintballs......heat is better cuz the JT is really slimmy on the shell
Monster balls......heat is better but monster is cheaper, good suppressing fire paint
stock Spyder MR2
Spyder flux wraparound grip
what every fits you best
Nice hard shell
Not the highest quality, dimple after 4 months
I use this paint all the time at my field and it works well. Its a good paint for suppression tactics so its cheap enough to do that. I have never used SUPER HIGH quality paint so i wouldnt know the diff but from what ive heard its just more expensive(just my opinion). It sometimes breaks inside the barrel but its easy to clean out(my opinion) just dry fire a couple of times or take the barrle out.
Very good cheap paint, its perfect in my price range(its $55) the next level of paint at my field is $66 or so dollars. Over all nice product

Decently accurate. They don't chop easy. Pretty consistant size
Bought a case of these to use for a big day of woodsball we played this last weekend. I was very impressed with these balls for the price. Picked them up at a local shop for $41 a case. Went through around 1800-1900 balls and only one broke in the barrel. It took about 5-7 shots to clear out. None broke in the hopper. Pretty good considering I bit it pretty hard a couple times. Once even hard enough to send the hopper flying. Accuracy wasn't quite as good as marbs but they still consistantly shot pretty darn straight. They matched up very well with my Pro One barrel. Previously, I've been shooting mostly Recon's due to price and not having barrel breaks but after this weekend this will be my new paint of choice. The only complaint I have is with the fill. It's a bit thin and could be wiped off decently easy.
I would definitely reccomend these balls if they match up to your barrel. Overall, a very good ball for the price. I was very suprised with the accuracy and lack of chops.

I decided to give these a try at the local field and kinda sorry i bought a case of it.
Normally using the DXS triumph at the field has been really consistent and good for rec balling but this paint just pissed me off! Dimples here and there and inconsistent flight patterns. at about a 20 foot range i unloaded 3-6 balls in the back of this guy and only 2 broke. watching other peoples reactions- there was alot of bounces. one which amazed me was having a full on tag on the visor which didnt break...only to have one skim off my shoulder and break WTF!
the breaks in the barrels caused me to have to swap markers and change barrels just to try and get some consistency but that didnt work.
Recommend the J&J ceramic so you can at least shoot through it easier....my lapco was less forgiving.
the fill was fairly bright but a bit thin.
Overall it was ok paint to play with.
The barrel breaks and inconsistency put a dampener on day.
Step up to higher grade if possible.

Breaks on enemys not in your gun. cheap!
I only shot about 40 balls in 4 hours of play cause i was tagging people out not shooting most of the time i got around 15 kills and we were playing 5 on 5 so i wasnt doing too bad. the paint that i did shoot broke on opponits not in the barrel so it worked out well. after the match a put my virtue on ramp and started shooing ropes of paint went through 2 hoppers and never broke a ball!
marbleizer, monster, vis. impacts. order of nelsplat in transit
mine and my kids 1. 'cocker pro, G1 barrel 2. 'cocker sport phat barrel 3. Pilot pmi barrel 4. tac-5 stock pilot barrel 5. tac-5 stock barrel
friends :6. triton stock barrel 7. brass eagle
Not 1 chop thru the whole box
broke every time
accuracy: heat > impacts
Accuracy: marblizers > heat
went out for the day with a case of heat, 2 bags of monster and a bag of each impacts and marblizer (left overs from last time out)
the triton was broke so didn't get any play with that one.
the BE they shot hooks but everything he shoots hooks probably due to 8" stock barrel
he had big problem with chops when using the monster balls has we all did gosh do they SUCK!
tac-5 Ditto to BE
tac-5 (pilot barrel) worked great my son was killing me with them and he's only 12
'cockers, pilot with aftermarket barrels was really surprised how good they were was expecting them to be in alot worse then marblizers since we paid like 1/2 as much and they weren't. I'd even rank them better than impacts and impacts cost $5. more.
For the price < $35 a case these are the best. (so far LOL)
based 8 of 10 soley on performance. factor in price I'd give a 10
I tried this paint to give the company a second try the first batch I tried was too soft and I broke a lot in the barrel now its to hard and I lit a guy up at 20 ft away and did not get a single break out a whole hopper !
big ball,high impact, strker, evil paintballs and procaps
black maxx and vl triton no upgrades
stock barrel works for me
Moisture does not effect them very much like it does to other cheaper made paintballs.
I used heat blueshell/yellowfill sometimes when hit a person/object the paint looks green.
Great for woodsball,scenerio, speedball i manly used it for woodsball though i have used diablo heat blue shell/yellow fill sometimes when they hit a person or object the paint looks sightly green and they come in so many shell/fill colors that it can become a problem sometimes, not always. I have also used big ball,high impact, strker, evil paintballs and procaps .They come many shell/fill colors that it can become a problem
Great for practice, testing, woodsball, scenerio, speedball, great quility for the price
no breakage in barrel
shot it all day.
None that i have found.
Very accurate, nice and firm.
It is a well rounded ball, unlike torke that ive used before it did not break at all in barrell.
No egg shape,
Its great paint in any type of condition. Ive used it in the morning when its cold, and when its very hot.
Great paint overall
I would reccommend this paint to anybody who is looking to paintball.
This is great rec paint. For the price of $ 30 that i get for is pretty good paint well quality.
Easy dents, dont bust good on contact
Very very thick shell
I used these once playing rec ball and target shooting. I thought theyd be good because there Diablos but I was wrong. Every ball had either a dent or a bulge on it. Now i had a few chops, but the main thing was that they werent busting. We having to call ourselves out even if the ball didnt bust. Now it could have been the field ownernot taking care of his balls but even if it was id want balls that were reliable even if that was the case. I had a crappy gun and my velocity was jumpy between 260-300, so Im not gonna say, oh dont get these they suck. All my friends thought they were bad too.
From my experience they let me down, but it wouldn't be stupid to go out there and buy 500 to try them out. Go ahead and try them.

14" progressive barrel

VL evolution hopper
sweet spot trigger
Paint is kind of thin
I have only used diablo heats for a little while, but i plan on continue buying them because of their price (i get them at Elite Paintball in West Springfield, MA for $35.99 for 2000), and their quality. I continuously was chopping cheap paint all day (DBX) and when i finally switched to the heats, i never chopped another ball. I also observed less curving even when shooting at long lengths in games (100-125 ft).
I would reccomend Diablo heats to anyone who can find them either online with low shipping or at a local dealer. They fire well and dont chop like cheaper balls, though if your dealing with wipers and cheaters the paint is a little thin.
