Recondo! Wednesday, November 8th, 2000
Strengths: You can get it in a decent amount of places. Maybe not Walmart...but easily Sports Authority and the like
Weaknesses: Broke a lot of balls in my 98. My teammate broke balls in his Spyder. Didn't enjoy the accuracy too much.
Conclusion: Normally...we shoot ProBall. My friend's friend brought some new Powerball to shoot. I would not purchase this paint again if I had a choice.

But....better than Brass Eagle. And the paint never broke in the hopper.

Strengths: These pballs fly extremely well from my model 98. I've shot dozens of cases and have had very few breaks. The bi-color shell also look cool as it flies. The balls are consistent in their shape. I would shoot no other brand.
Weaknesses: The paint is slightly expensive.
Conclusion: Compared to other balls this paint has a hard case and thus flies better. I believe the extra cost ($5-10) is well worth it.

Experience:

Products Used:
ProBall - thicker/harder shell, fill isn't as bright, more for rec play.
ProBall Platinum - similar shell, similar fill, solid color shell (platinum silver)
Voodoo - shell is more brittle, fill is slightly lighter in color but still bright, even harder to wipe
many others....
Marker Setup: 2005 Vision Impulse, new style (03 shocker) vertical max flow, Eclipse Blade trigger, CCM rail, CCM on/off

Alien Interceptor - (stock) CP reg, CP on/off, CP rail, "CP style" barrel (bigger bore)
Recommended
Barrels:
Whatever matches the best / your prefrence
I used a larger bore one piece barrel, like I always do
Strengths: Brittle shell
Breaks on target
flys straight
marks well, hard to wipe
Weaknesses: Maybe a little pricey for some / possibly slightly too brittle for higher pressure guns.
Review: I've shot about 2 cases of Powerball (Bronze/White-Orange) in the past 2 weeks. I used it in a 24hr scenario game, and in a local 3man tournament.
It has become an instant favourite with me. I was impressed with the way it performed in both games. I hit what i I was shooting at, and it marked well.
I had no problems with the paint. I didn't break a single ball in almost 2 cases, barrel breaks or otherwise.
If you take care of this paint, it will shoot flawlessly.
Conclusion: I would recommend this paint to anyone looking for something a little different than what they're normally shooting. It is great for pretty much any type of play, and I will definitely be shooting it again.

Strengths: It has Paint in it?
Weaknesses: See Review
Review: Okay Recently used this ball at a Scenario game, It was Huge, I used an Evil Pipe and the largest bore(.695) and it was still breaking every 10th ball or so. the ones that didnt break would twist and curve more than curly fries. I am not kidding when i say that I fired a ball and watched it curve left around a tree then right again on the other side.
It was dimpled, the fill was more like water and the shell was so hard that most of the shots that Did hit would bounce.

I switched to another paint and had No problems afterwards.
Conclusion: Everyone was complaining about this paint.. I think overall I would have rather used brass eagle at least that would have been worth what you paid for it.

Products Used:
Nothing compares to this product
Marker Setup: RAT Impulse with vision, Vet Max flow, ND no rise, ND Magno Trigger ( Very Very Sweet), SP Progressive Barrel
Recommended
Barrels:
I wouldnt shoot this stuff through any barrel whatsoever
Strengths: Its cheap
Weaknesses: Uhmm where to begin; lumps in the balls, shell qualtiy is horrible, warped balls.
Review: Okay-- its not like I just started playing yesterday,--- I am shooting an Impulse which is LP-- which means it is pretty easy with the ball-- but I couldnt even shoot a string of over 4-5 with out getting barrel breaks--- thats right breaks in the barrel-- not in the chamber-- thanks to the eye of course.. Also used an Gen X A/C and well we wont even go there-- it seemed like this stuff was breaking more in the barrel than it was on the opponents.
Conclusion: UNLESS YOU HAVE NOTHING ELSE to shoot-- even then again I would probably go to Wal Mart and buy Brass eagle over this stuff.. GET EVIL-- RULE THE WORLD
