These balls are the best for the money. Out of a 4000 balls, i cant report one barrel break or one bouncer. I played with em in a sypder and a M98, both stock barrels.
nothin really i wouldn't even call it pricey... so u can get some OK paint for 40 or somethin but these are worth $10 extra, so i aint complainin. Maybe they dont got the best colors, but member, the paints bustin on the other team right?
I've never met a person who doesn't like powerball. Always consistant, and they can sit a while and still play good. Buy these paintballs, u wont regret it.
This paint is great. I split a case with a couple of friends of mine (I have a M98 custom, they had a prolite and piranha), and they did great. No breaks that I know of out of a case of 2000 and none bounced off their target. I even like the packageing. For my Model 98 custom, I am trying only to use powerball.
Nothing I can think of.
I shape is consistant,
My stock barrel was more accurate then it was with any other paint,
It is an averaged priced paint,
It is great compared to most,
I would strongly recommend this to anyone who wants some great paint.
In my experience with several different brands of paintballs, Powerballs definitely break the least. Definitely. They aren't greasy either. Dents? Not one!
The outer shell is noticeably harder than the other paintballs I've used. If I shoot an opponent with Zap, PMIs, and Powerballs, if one of them doesn't break on impact, it is probably the Powerball. Also, the paint fill leaves a faint stain on clothing sometimes.
I am a regular purchaser of Powerballs. Get these, I guarantee you will be satisfied.
Overall just really good paint. The roundness and consistency are maybe not quite on par with Marbs and the like, but then these will break on the target. I shot over a full case of these through a mag and had just one break in the barrel. Probably my fault, the gun's not mine, so I'm not used to a mag. The accuracy left very little to be desired, I was shooting through some really old Smart Parts barrel, which I guess must have been just the right bore size (really nice barrel, wish I knew what the dang thing was). They broke consistently on targets, but, like I said, only 1/2000 in the barrel, and that was my fault. The fill in the Pearl colored ones is a really nice neon yellow color, shows up VERY well. These are just perfect for the low-medium level guns. Just thick enough not to break in the barrel, and yet they manage to break just about always on targets.
Hmmmm... Well, there... umm.... I guess it costs a little more than some of the bargain brand paints, but I'm pretty sure it's still less than the paints that compete with it.
This paint is well worth what it costs. If you're playing recball and would like to compete, or if your team needs something to practice with that's closer to what you normally play with as far as accuracy goes. I'd reccomend these to anyone who doesn't mind spending a little extra money, or anyone who wants a paint to sell at their field. They're comparable to RPS paint except that the shell is a little thinner. So, if your gun's pretty hard on paint, go with RPS, but if not, these are better IMHO at breaking on target.
This review is about their Pearl brand: One word CONSISTENCY. On par with every other tourney grade paint out there. The best choice for any field paint only tournaments, great through most guns that prefer not too britle a shell. So you can't go wrong with cockers, mags, and angels. Price is cheap for paint of this quality. It is mid-bore size (.688) and I equate it with RP Scherer's Premium Gold, Fire Rock.
Power Ball is a rather obscure paint label for such a well made ball as Pearl. It doesn't have the britlness as your Hellfires or All Stars though, but that's more a part of it's appeal as the perfect FPO paintball. Word is it is made by Nelson, and distributed by National Paintball South. Word is NPS is on the verge of going under. I hope Powerball Pearl survives through another distributor.
Any decent mid-bore barrel will devoure this stuff without any problems. No dimples, if fresh. The best paint for the money, $50.00 per case. On par with the best in consistency/accuracy. I highly recommend buying this if you get the chance, excellent for practices or bring your own rec-ball days.
don't have much to say except I use proballs and zaps alot and I have to say that these paintballs are great and from were i get them there cheaper than proballs are. Also they have a alot of paint in each of them so they splatter good so you can tell if you hit a opponent. Also from the ones i shot they don't break in barrels much at all.
NOTHING AT ALL
I think these balls are great and now I won't use anything else. I would suggest these to anybody
