Well i picked myslef up a box of Brozne because i was wanted to try something new and they get good reviews. i got them pretty cheap @ $40 a case
Breaks on Contact. i cant even discribe how good these are with my spyder. i took one shot from 50+ feet and hit the guy. it was great to only need to take one shot in the forest and then return to cover
Wow the fill on these is BRIGHT, you can clearly see that you hit the person
i had a few dimpled ones, it was probally a bad batch, and i have yet to tap in to me other 3 bags
The paint is worth it, i recomend xball to anyone, and its pretty cheap compared to other brands

Bright, unwipeable fills

Here and there bounces but the majority break on contact
Great paintballs with a great fill are X Ball Bronze. Only had one break our of like 2500 balls i've ever shot. Widely available due to its popularity and extremely bright fills. Walmart paintballs are average good, but for X Balls, its worth it to pay the extra $5 for the quality and greatness. A must buy for any paintball player.
Recreational, Scenario, Tournament, and anywhere else
Great paint for the price and the consistancy
I was using a .685 bore, for those who match paint to bore.
Size is fairly uniform throughout.
Doesn't always break.
Played some recball this weekend & got a case of Bronze for free ("payment" for reffing). Unsure if it was a fresh batch or not; assumed it was.
First Glance: Procaps packs their paint very well. Box divided into 4 sections, bags are thick & sealed (instead of twist-tied). Paint shells were virtually dimple-free & no broken balls in any of the bags i opened (only used 3 bags that day).
Break Test: lift arm above head & dropped a couple on some rocks. Good paint should crack or break but Bronze didn't. Just bounced.
Bore Test: i've only got 2 Un1tech bores right now, .685 & .693. Fit ok through the .685. Some rolled a little, some needed to be blown out.
Over the Chrono: Bronze flew pretty straight. I was hitting a large wooden spool & noticed the fill was pretty thin. But it is rec grade so no surprise there, although rec grade Karnage (Bite) has a thicker fill.
On the Field: wasn't getting as many breaks as i wanted. Got someone on their mask, which was a break, but got someone else a couple times in the thigh & waist and i didn't notice those break (although he got out, anyway).
EDIT: ok, got another case recently and it wasn't as bad. Still didn't break as often but broke more often than last time. Plus the fill was oddly thicker than last time. Weird.
For practice, fine-tuning or rentals, it's fine. Wouldn't want to use it otherwise. Can't really judge it on the price since i didn't pay for it.

Anything with a medium bore size or bigger.
Dont chop much at all
None that I am aware of
At first, when i was shooting these paintballs i thought that they sucked. They seemed to be horribly inaccurate and spin alot. The whole reason for this is that i had chopped a paintball in my gun and there was alot of paint in the barrel, it was no the paintballs fault. The second time that I used these paintballs, i had used visible impact and was getting tired of chopping, i loaded my hopper full of XBall Bronze and went through all 500 that i had with no chops.
They don't cost to much they are accurate as nobodys buisness and have a great fill. Man I love these things. They have like the perfect shell no barrel brakes and no bounces. No one could wipe this fill it sticks on em like glue.This is exactly the blaze paintballs I used I mean I had a hopper with both in it and couldn't tell the difference. It flys straight and delivers.
Very good practice paint that doen't get too brittle in colder weather. Very consistent trajectory. When my Ion was chopping every other paint, I switched to xball bronze and went through a case of paint with only two chops. You can easily find this paint on-line for $40/case.
Xball makes excellent paint - silver and gold even better in terms of paint thickness and amount of fill.
For the longest time i just used the field's no name paint because it was decent and was half the price. It would break maybe 1/50th of the time in my gun the other 49 were fine. Now after buying my boomstick breaks were a little more difficult to shoot through so i needed to avoid them. I figured oh well, and bought a case of Xball Bronze... wow
This paint was way more accurate than I'd thought paint could be. In the 10 cases or so I've shot through my boomstick i break maybe 1/200 or less and that's usually the rare bad ball.
I have been using this stuff and i've shot a case of draxxus too since switching and i'll never go back to the no name paint again... for one i spend about the same because i only have to throw half the balls with the accuracy improvement and secondly the green fill has prevented a lot of wipes which is always nice.
This paint is great and isn't very expensive. Sure there are others that are slightly better but for cost this paint is a great buy. Don't think i'm saying it's decent and cheap, i'm saying it's great and affordable meaning you don't really have to sacrifice quality for price.
-No dimples, sh0ots straight and consistent, no breaks in barrel and decent price.
None with performance. It does have an odd odor if you want to be picky.
The only type of paint the Angel 1 can't shoot is the Walmart grade crap. This review is more geared for experienced players with high end markers looking for a good paint at a good price. I shoot a ton of paint per outing, so I need a cost effective product with good performance. The Xball Bronze is very good. I got the case for $53.00 at Cousins Paintball, but I see it online at Orderpaintball.com for $30.00.
I recommend this paint, and will use it again.
Great for rec and practice. It is also good enough for tourney play.
back up promaster
ndz rail on/off combo
.687 worked really well for me
Breaks on Target
Hard to wipe
looks pretty kool i guess
I had several barrel breaks
I decided to play down at nvp and this is the paint they use. it worked very well, the paint was round and it flew stright. throughout the five hours i was there i had several barrel breaks with this stuff. the thick fill made it hard to shoot through so i had a swab with me every time i went out.
Good paint. more than i wana pay for paint but o well. give it a try
xball silver - genrally better
Anarchy - better
Hemmorrhage - on par

Decent fill, breaks on target
I've used xball bronze 3 times, 2 out of the 3 were just fine but the batch i recieved this weekend was horrible. The 2 good batched ive used before were consistantly round with few dimples(but still....the were dimples), and broke damn near every time on target. The fill is bright and thick enough not to be wiped. The case i just used this weekend was the worst batch of paint ive ever used. The balls were the green/bronze ones with 75% of the shell being green and 25% bronze. Its almost as if the balls were produced as they were running low on the bronze layer so the green had to stretch to make up the difference. The green part of the shell was increadibly soft and thin while the bronze was quite hard. Most of the balls were also "egg" shaped, and each bag had a few breaks in it. I sorted through the balls to try and salvage what i could, but threw away about 1200 of the 2000rnd case. I would have hoped procaps had some sort of protocall for this not to happen, but i guess a few defects can get past the best of them.
Buy the paint if you want some cheap balls with decent quality, or spend the extra $2 and get xball silver which i find to be far superior. Cross your fingers you dont get a bad batch.
