Last bag is cubes
Break 2 easily
When i began using these they were very inaccurate. I got them because they were the cheapest the store had. Little did i no that the store had RPS paint for $5 more. Anyway, when i got down to the last bag there was no more balls...they were cubes...they were stuck together. so basically ur buying 1500 paintballs, and the second to last bag isnt that much better than the last.
I would highly recommend spending that extra 5 or 10 dollars and getting paint that are actually in the shape of balls.

It does not matter. Just about any stock barrel will outperform this paint.
Not to brittle in cold weather.
Too tough to break on target.
Hard to tracer fire.
Alright. My first review for these balls was almost exactly a year ago and I rated them a 4 because they WERE terrible in every respect.
NOW.... they have been recently "reformulated", so I'll only talk about the new version:
They are "steel blue" in shell color. Translation: Grey and hard to see them flying.
The shell is supposedly better for all weather play. Well, indeed, they are so tough that they work fine in 25 degree weather. They also bounce greater than fifty times on the "bounce test". I haven't had them break on an opponent except mask or marker.
The green fill is fairly thick and bright - but I would swear that every once and a while an empty or nearly empty ball shows up.
They don't fly too straight. Not quite as accurate as "Visible Impact", "Spyder Black Label", "DXS Silver" to name a few.
I think I would only suggest these for winter play when Polar Ice or other good paint is not available.

smart parts all american, j&j, Dye, or just use stock.
I didn't break one ball in the marker.
I didn't break one ball on anything that wasn't completely solid either.
I saw these paintballs on-line and in some sports stores and thought I would give them a try. I only bought 500 rds and was pleased with the accuracy of this paint, but I was not happy with its breaking ability. Most of the games played with this paint I only got mask and marker breaks nothing on the body. I kinda felt sorry for some of the players I ended up shooting with this paint because more likely or not they would take 10 or so hits before it would break on there mask or marker. One poor kid just called himself out because he was hit to many time's, he told me that stuff I was shooting was really hard and hurt more than it should have.
If your just practice shooting or you just can't afford anything else I would by this paint but if your not wanting to shoot 3 times the amount to make on hit count by somthing more like Rp or diablo.
Six Spyder Sonics completely stock and brand new
One Brass Eagle Striker
I ordered this paintball at the same time I ordered our first paintball guns due to the inexpensive price. It was the first paintballs we shot and we thought it was a blast. However, after shooting the Kingman Red Label these do not seem to fill the bill. The fill is very poor. It is hard to see and it is very thin and runny. The balls are heavily dimpled and almost never fly straight. It is amazing the consistancy that the will take off at at what appears to be a 45 degree angle at about 15 to 20 yards.
These are the balls you buy for the kids or for the people you hope to shoot. They are a waste of time for your own use.
vl eggy 2
-Some dimples due to shelf life.
Alright so since ive been playing more recball with my buddys lately i decided to just try out some cheaper paint this time, so i chose monsterballs from walmart. I expected these to be absolute crap because i had a bad experience with brass eagle paint before, but when i opened the bucket (it took about 5 minutes) i was pretty impressed. They are a great colour and there wasn't many dimples which was a bonus. When i was shooting them they were pretty accurate and didnt curve for the most part. Most of the balls were round and had a good shell on them. The seems are pretty visible but hey its cheap paint you cant complain:).
Go buy this stuff if your going out with your friends for some good old rec ball. You may not to use it in a tourny though.
Ok, I don't know if this was a bad batch or what but they were terrible. I got them as a gift from some relatives who new I paintballed so this is what they got. First thing I did because there brass eagle and since I've never actually bought the stuff, checked it out. I can honestly say after looking at about 50 balls, 2 had no dimples. When putting them through my sizing detents they went straight through as to being too small. The next thing is the seams, since these affect a balls flight quite much. A normal one has -------, these ones were litterally ~~~~, curvy and 'poo'. Many were oval. My main problem with these was how much they bounced. I could not believed what happened but ill tell you. I got a the road (pavement) it bounced, hit a fence and bounced then hit a metal light pole and bounced off that. I could hear each distinct ping from it. Many other bounced alot, and that is just not safe.
There not good and almost dangerous, maybe just to test a new markers ROF or something.

Ball has a mind of its own
This paint is literally one of the crappiest that I have ever used before. They are cheap (not only in price, but also in quality) and not accurate at all. I think that BT should buy up Brass Eagle, and market these balls as Apex Balls, because they curve like an Apex barrel. My friend has an Apex on his A-5, and we had a contest to see who could shoot ourselves in the face first with the barrel pointing away from us. I accually hit myself in the face, and only angled the barrel slightly upwards.
These aren't worth the money. They have no accuracy, have many chops, broken balls in the bag, runny fill, not bright fill, and like to bounce on targets. They seem to like to break in my Ion, but not on a person. If this was your only option for paint, I think that you should sit out a day, order some decent paintballs from the internet, and actually tag somebody out. These just don't match the quality of other paintballs.

Well, firing my tippman (have 3 guns, ion, tippy and spyder) these worked horrible with my freak barrel, did not have the larger insert with me, but had the stock barrel. put on the stock barrel and everything was fine, no break after that. they worked fine. accuracy was down, the paint is watery, but all in all, would buy again for around the yard play in a heartbeat and not worry about it. With the stock barrel these are fine
EDIT: These are coming to stores (wal-mart) all dimpled now. the fresh batch (they were not there 2 days ago) that was on the shelf at my local Wal-mart the bottom two bags were dimpled with flat spots all over them, not good since they all come from a central warehouse. Kmart carries these two, and I would be even more scared to buy from my local kmart since they are covered in a nice layer of dust, have an 05 shipping sticker on them, and have been on the top shelf all that time. END EDIT
For rec play, stock barrels or the right sized insert, they are fine, and break easy on target. Sized differed greatly on a digital caliper, but hey, they are under 30 for 2000 balls, cheap when you just want to fart around
