ion with freak barrel kit shocker mini drop with on/off and a Q-locking feedneck
freak barrel 693 insert
It shoots straight
it breaks easy, but not to easy
not to expensive
I found none
when i used this paint fo r the first time i was like "Holy crap" it was the best stuff i had ever shot though my trilogy, that is what i was using at the time. It shot perfect it had some spread but not to much. then i got my ion and used it with it. i have a freak on it. it worked just as good with my ion.
Small bore size. if you have a 691 barrel they will roll out
ok here this goes. i went to pick up some paint at the local shop and these were the cheapest paintballs they had so i bought them.Im using a stock barrel and these things were flying straight ...only thng that made them curve was the wind . my gun didnt chop once out of a whole case.they were like 45 a case still kinda pricey!... hey if your still not sure about this paint tell a friend its great and when they buy some just trade a bag of 500 and see how you like it.
I love this paint, I plan on buying this stuff in the future. I have used alot of paint in my day and this brand is a keeper... If yor looking for good paint never shop at walmart and you should be cool!

Trilogy pro (stock)
revolution 12volt with x board
pure energy 48ci 3000psi air tank
Dye rhino thak cover
Break on impact
These paintballs are great. i have been using crappy paint from wal mart (brass eagle stuff) there is no comparison between the two. These paintballs are not very expensive either ($42) and they can compete with the expensive $60 dollar paint. They have a very bright fill. it is like a neon orange and you can see it a mile away. They are perfectly round and fly very straight. they almost never break in your gun even in cheap guns. these are the best paintballs out there.
I have used:
Smart parts ion with red body kit, custom barrel, pure energy nitro 48ci/3000psi, viewloader evolution II with Z board, T-lock feedneck
Works fine with stock barrells, and works GREAT with J&J, ultralite and other barrels
-doesnt break on barrel
None so far
These paintballs are really cheap for their quality, like 50 bucks the case. I must say these paintballs are the best ones I have ever used. They are perfectly round, they NEVER bounce, they don't break on your gun, they have a very bright color, that can be seen from dozens of feet, the fill isn't that easy to clean without water (something I love because it stops cheaters that wipe). They don't stain. Maybe their only weakness is the lack of colors, but hey, who cares!
Get them, they are the best paintballs I have ever used. They have an unmatchable quality!
Pmi super swirl- (fill not as thick, doesnt break as well, shoots pretty accuratly)
Marbalizer-(Nice fill but doesnt blow up on target like proto, doesn't break that well, shoots far)
Evil- (breaks ok, fill sucks, shoots far and accurate)
xball-(breaks ok, fill is decent, shoots very far and accurate)
Blaze-( Very good fill, shoots accuratley)
Anarchy-(Very thick fill, Accurate, Shoots far, cool colors)
Others I cant remember
Tippmann A-5 with 12 in. .691 stiffi barrel, GTA expansion chamber, collapsable stock, r-t, and i have a flatline barrel
2003 Black Shocker:
Max-flo 68/4500 system
soon to come 14 inch stiffi Switch
and a Reloader B
Fits perfectly with the stock All-American
Blows up on target
Seams are very smooth
Doesnt seem to shoot very far
Accuracy- very good at about 40 feet my A-5 can hit a trash can with about 3-4 inch grouping. Distance is reasonable Xball shoots alot farther, but that might be because there is less fill and is slightly smaller
Fill- Exellent it blows up on the target when you shoot and is very bright
Size- very consistent, all of them are round and the seams are very small and smooth
Dependibilty- They almost always break on target and are pretty good at shooting through bushes and branches
Price- I had to pay 48 dollars with a coupon at my local shop which kinda sucked because they are 60 dollars without it. But If you buy them online you can get it for like 40 dollars which is a really really good price for this quality paintball.
Exellent paintball will buy again sometime after I try out some more paint like all-stars and X.O paint which I heard were very good. Definetly tries these out for a day to really enjoy a good game of paintball.

Thick Bright Fill
Rare Barrel Breaks
Breaks On Target
Reliable Flight Pattern
Only comes in Orange
I primarly play woodsball, and have used many types of paint. After first trying this paint late in 2004, I was in love.
I have used Tippman Balls, PMI Premium, Diablo Formula 13 & Heat, Draxxus Blaze & Inferno, Menace, 32 Degrees Competetion and various "white box" paint.
The only consistent performers I have experienced are Proto Darts and PMI Premiums with a slight edge to the Proto Darts even tho they are typically ~10$ more at my favorite Paintball place Blast 'Em (enter cheap plug).
The Protos have a thick and bright orange fill that is easy to see on target breaks and difficult to wipe.
Protos have a reliable flight pattern and even in a light drizzle, cool weather (~70 degrees) dont get squirrely. Balls can be shot consistently between pallet slats.
The balls are durable enough to withstand transport and I have never seen a dimpled ball and I have had the pleasure of only having a half dozen breaks out of over 10 cases. The balls also store better than most balls and have had cases sit for over a month (a hazard of living in Florida and the heavy rain) and shoot without noticable performance loss to a fresh box.
Excellent Ball that performs like you need it to even at a slighty premium price (to some) of 50-60$ a case.
If you dont like to throw paint or looking to lower your paint cost, this is defiantely something to look into. I average 1250-1500 rounds a day (5 hours) of Protos vs 2500-3000 of other brands.

Thick thick fill
No dimples or mishapen balls
Fill is a little hard to clean if you get a break.
I just bought a bag of 500 of these to mess around with, man do they rock too. I accidentally had my hopper turned off and I only got one chop, I was also using a crappy barell/ bore match. The one break I did get was so hard to get out of my barell, the fill is so thick. Although with the right barell and hopper these things would probably never chop.
Definantly will buy these again.
Nice ball, Can't wait to buy some more, one of the best I've used in a while.

went to Utah and played the fields there. One field had to use there paint, and other were able to BYOP. Purchased it from the sports chalet about 45 bucks. I opened the box at the store to make sure that there wasn't any broke. The packing is awesome on these they pack it with bubble wrap around the whole box and the paint is vacuumed seal in the box with air to keep them from being crushed. I didn't find any broke. So I tested it at the field. These are very solid paintballs. Thick shell didn't break on the supair obstacles all the time. Which means that you will be putting a mark on people even if it didn't break. Make sure that you fire 3 or 4 at them. To give you an example of this, during the day, in one game I was able to hit a person on the other team by it bouncing off the back netting and it hitting them on the back of the head. Pretty impressive. The paint inside also is very thick. Means no wiping on the field.
All in all this is a very good paintball. I like the thick paint. I had maybe 3 - 5 breaks out of 2000. The accuracy drops a little I think because the weight and thickness of the paint. Other than that I would buy it again, This would be the paint that I would recommend if you are going to play outdoors.
-03 Shocker, Dynasty M5 board, 14' Stiffi, CCM Dynasty Trigger Frame, CCM Dynasty clamp feed, and Dye Throttle tank
-06 Empire Intimidator
-01 Vert Feed WGP Autococker, Shocktech Superfly bolt, Orracle 3-way, Palmer's Rock reg, Taso Winforce barrell, WGP Hinge trigger, and Black Magic drop forward
They work well in my Stiffi
Just as good as Evil at less of a cost
None that I've experienced
I just recently switched over from Evil to Proto, and it turned out to be my best decision yet. The paint's still flying just as straight and it's still not breaking in the gun. Plus, it's about $5-$10 cheaper than Evil! In the long run, think of the money you can save!
heats, scorch, big balls, blaze, voodoo, proball, chronics, marbs, xo vein
PM6 red dust
lucky un1tec barrel kit

trinity low raise feed neck
virtue eyes n board

i used my .693 un1tec barrel
based on the other reviews ive seen its .688-.693
There not sold in any of my local stores no more :(
these paintballs shoot very accurately...wen i first use these paintballs i shot out 3 guys out at the back end n its about 80 yards or 100 yards dunno sumwhere between...of course it wasnt a one ball hit but maybe a burst considering it was pretty far.
the fill is nice and thick bright orange
and you cant beat the price wich ranges from 35-40 sumthing bucks
Im a pretty low budget paintballer now so these hav been the only paintballs ive been using
only bad thing is that i dont have dealers that sell these in my area no more:( so i hav to order online
I am very picky wit paintballs n i want the best in my budget and these paintballs amazed me how good they were for a cheap price.
