This is Draxxus paint that has been mismanufactured, IE the wrong fill color in the wrong shell, wrong shell color combinations (in multicolor shelled balls) and is otherwise perfectly fine. This is a mix of brands like Hellfire, Dusk, Scorch, Inferno etc. Because of the mix of brands there is less consistency in speeds at the chrono and accuracy.
The DraXxuS Rainbow Paintballs are newer, so they should be commonly available.
Just about every Draxxus, Tons of cheap off-brand, Evil of all kinds, Dozens of types of paint.
Custom ION - 14" SP Linear, Fasta, Skeleton Bolt (I think, got it a long time ago), custom body/frame, Empire Grips, CP Drop/ASA, QEV, a lot of upgrade parts acquired over 3 years or so. Stock board/eyes. PMI 68/3000.
None, all four of mine on both the Pilot and the Ion, and a friends Intimidator and an Angel all destroyed this paint.
Cheap, works when it works.
Breaks like nobody's business when I used it (2 cases from 2 different sources)
Like above mentioned, my ion in both barrels ripped this stuff apart, as did the Pilot. So we upgraded paint and had no breaks or chops at all after that. Further, I have never once broken ANY paint in my barrel or chopped in either of my markers. Thousands of rounds, and these two cases ruined it for me.
Even in a friend's Timmy and Angel, and all of his Barrel kits, both cases seemed to completely dissolve at a whisper of air pushing it anywhere down a barrel.
Every third or fourth ball splattered out of all the barrels, no matter what bore inserts we had even in the super low pressure timmy and angel, so I cannot blame the barrels, nor the guns, as all have very good eyes that have never failed (yet....).
Horrible when I used it, perhaps I got a really, really bad couple cases, but even then one was ordered online and the other was bought on the field. I wouldn't offer this to someone at all. But, others use it just fine, so I give it a 3. My experience never, ever breaking a ball with my two current markers until this day was shot down completely with the cases I had.
3 out of 10

some thing with a big bore
They are cheap and look cool
Break in barrel, all different sizes, not round
my buddy was telling me how great this paint was so i figured i would try it, so i went out and bought a box of 2000. that afternoon i put it in my gun and started shooting it through my flatline and the balls were ever where from about 75feet. i couldn't hit a sheet of plywood 3 times in a row not to mention the fact it the balls broke in my barrel about every 50 shots if i got luck :S. so i put the box in my room and left it there with 3 bags still so the other night i took several of the balls out of the bag to see how it fit in my barrel a few wouldnt even go through my barrel it got stuck :( and know its still sitting there on the floor.
also my brother had problems with it breaking to and he has a normal barrel so it wasnt just my flatline
Do not buy unless you are on a budget. and do i not recommend this paint to anyone its the worst paint i have ever used
2 points for colorful
1 point for cheap
ALL black species intimidator with Alias front block and Assassins frame and was 2.9. CCM clampfeed, RMR killstick bolt, Bearing trigger, stiffi switch. Fbm blade delrin trigger.
Also 06 empire intimidator olive green all stock with fbm delrin blade trigger
OVERBORE LIKE 693-695-697
CHEAP and if you devide the paint up, some is nice.about half.
Half of the case of paint is crappy, breaks in barrel brittle.
there was a brittle orange shelled paint in all three cases I purchased that would constantly break in barrel from the air hitting it. I use an intimidator with very low pressure (75 psi) so this paint has no excuse for breaking so easily. the orange balls are basically useless the orange paint mixed in it was about half of each case so it sucked majorly.
maybe I just got a bad batch but I dunno because all three cases I used had the same result... so now i basically dont use the paint and give it away to people at the feild on the other team so they suck ass when i play them.
I divided all the balls when I got them to get better consistency and the amount of each color of paintball is this.
40% orange shell/fill - very brittle shell very thick fill <---20% of these gave me barrel breaks every time
30% red shell / pink fill - nice paint medium shell consistent and bright fill
20% blue/teal shell / light blue fill - Tournament grade paint perfect shell and fill quality.
10% graphic shell random balls - medium quality no breaks.
DONT BUY this... im sorry it is too much a headache to seperate and then half problems when you play.. not worth it in my oppinion
Large bore size and maybe self cleaning one to if you hate using a squeege during a game
Price and mostly bright fill
Different bore size not all the paintballs break on enemy
I bought these paintball for mostly woodsball and to practice. The price of these paitnballs are some of the cheapest too. Mostly all the balls broke on impact but you"ll get a few that won't brake. It doesn't matter. Some may break in your barrel but it is not a lot. It's also pretty cool seeing the player you shot in all defferent colors. HA! HA! =O
Overall these balls are great for recball and practice and a great price. The only thing that I didn't like was the paintballs were all different sizes
Karni with e2 frame.
a large bore barrel. See review
overall good quality
Can't really size up the paint.
Well I recently purchased this paint for cheap from firstcallpaintball. Overall it's an excellent paint for the price. Only downside is there are different sized balls so I couldn't size them with my freak so I just went with the .693 insert. For the most part paint shot accuratly and broke on target. I did experience a couple barrel breaks and some bounces but for the price I expected that and to be honest I expected alot worse. It's also fun shooting someone a few times and having different colors on them. For the price I will definetly buy these again for rec play and practice.
It's cheap and shot good. Just don't expect hellfire or ultra evil quality. And make sure you have a large bore cause with a small bore barrel you will probably expereince alot of barrel breaks. Gave it a 9 cause I was pleased with it for the price.
