Well, for one the price. I'm not too old and I don't have a job yet, so that's a good factor. I don't have too many bounces, although they do seem to break in my armson stealth. I guess they're pretty good paint, though i wouldn't recommend it for tourneys, pretty much rec stuff.
well, they break in your barrel. it's sorta the average paint to me. i think they break in my barrel though because it has a tiny bore size.
well, this is okay paint. i mean, it works great in medium-large bore sizes. i had a few dimples in a case or two, but i don't really care about 2 or 3 balls. you're not even guaranteed 2000 anyways with any paint! it's worth the price. sure, marbs and all stars are better, but i always say one thing. if this does the job, why pay more for something you dont need? this does the job, and it comes in cool colors too 8)
I didnt break one ball of it from half a case, it shot as strait as some more expensive paint, broke on target as well as ive seen almost any other paint. The box looks wicked, and it stores pretty well.
i noticed a few well dimpled balls, which could cause some guns to break it or not shoot straight.
I only actually shot it through my back up gun(Sheridan XTS) not my cocker 2k. Im not sure if the cocker would chop some of it or not, but as i could tell it was good paint.
Great paint, breaks where you want it. Nice colors, cool
shell, round consistent...Great buy!!!
Can't say anything bad about 'em
I first used Diablo Blaze when it first came out...I
remember it very vividly, it was my first ever tournament.
The paint was crap. I broke paint constantly, and the color
was a disgusting pepto bismol pink. Well, I was convinced
that I would never buy Diablo paint again. It seems that
Diablo listened to the complaints of their customers and
adjusted the shell thickness, ball size, and paint to make
a superior ball at a good price. The next time I tried this
stuff was at a field that had Diablo as field paint...I
shot the stuff with no breaks in my gun...It was excellent,
now it is my paint of choice...Just my two cents though.

BE-good for cheap paint, get it a Wal-Mart for cheap
Nel-Splat-Broke in my barrel a lot
Freak Jr. W/14' AA front
Maddman Spring Kit
Custom Trigger Job
32* Starfire Bolt
Any- that is the point of paint to bore size matching
-Doesn't break in barrel
-works awesome in the insert that came with my Freak
This paint is the best. It is the only kind I use. GO BUY IT. I don;t have enough words so i'm going to talk about cheese. You know there are many types of cheese, such as cheddar, vermont, blue, and many others. Me, i'm partial to cheddar myself. Ok i think thats enough words now.
they are hard balls and dont always break o contact.
no complaints here. 2 cases with 0 breaks and great accuracy, sounds great to me....the balls look good and bright so its not hard to watch ur stream goin at them....and if ur oposing teams are shooting it the brightness makes it easy to see there balls. the paint is relativley cheap so thats a plus.....i would recomend it to anyone who doesnt demand the absolute best.....besides ur only gonna see like 2-3% difference between this and higher quality balls.
its a good product, i recomend it to anyone who doesnt have a ton of monaey to buy paint with...if u have the xtra 10-15$ go ahead and buy the better stuff..its better but not by much.
If, that is IF you get a good batch it would be decent paint.
Lately batches have been inconsistent, ie, out of round, some brittle(very few), lots of dimples even in a fresh case.. Also they are more like bouncy balls than paintballs. Part of the problem is the way they are packaged. The bags are sealed too tight so in a way it "squishes" the balls
They are also pricey for the medium/low quality they perfrom at.
For the price you pay for them I would shoot for the RPS line, and if possible worr paint, its same price, and quality of a marbalizer.
All RPS stuff as well as many walmart paints and Zap
Standard bore is fine, these seems to range from .688 to .690
Good value and consistency
I decided it was time to update my review on Blaze paintballs. This is the usual paint that we use at the field and during practices. The quality of Blaze has gone up recently, I've been seeing much more consistent shell sizes and less dimples on the balls. Blaze paintballs can usually be found for aroung $50/case and they come in a wide variety of shell and fill colors. The shell is fairly hard, and will bounce off body parts if hit in a glancing manner, but in general the break to bounce ratio is good.
Shooting Blaze through the .689 stock barrel on my Ion I received no breaks and very good consistency. Around +-5fps compared to +-10fps when using Draxxus rec-sport. The fill on blaze was moderately thick, but still a bit on the watery side. Splat marks were easily visible on opponents.
Blaze comes in four sealed bags of 500. The sealed bags help keep the paint fresher compared to the twist-tie bags that many paintball companies use.
For the price, Blaze is one of the better paints out there.
For consistent quality and a great value, I give Blaze an updated score of 8.

on the very rare occasion you get a good batch, it might be good (but i haven't had one yet)
out of the 3 times i have gotten this paint all 3 cases have been bad. the first case had so many dimples they looked like tinny golf balls. the second had dirt, yes dirt in the sealed bag. the last case we got was at a tournament, these balls were ether so fragile they broke in the hopper or were so bouncy they were comparable to super balls. this last fact cost us a pole position.
if you bought blaze, i feel sorry for you. if you plan to buy it in the future, you're an idiot.
