Break in barrel
Don't fly straight
I needed some paint and I only had so much money so i grabbed a box of these.. They are not very good at all. They were breakin in the barrel in my pod's and my hopper. A lot of them dont fly very straight. They are not round and there were some broken in the bag when i got them.
Don't buy these paintballs if you can get higher end paintballs instead.

lots of dimples
I got these on a recommendation from a friend who said they were good stuff. Maybe for him, but i don't think to highly of them. They got dimpled very quickly and bounced off of everything except trees. I caught a guy running at me with 4 in the chest and they all bounced. Fill's good so when they do break it's obvious.
Might be a good practice ball but they bounce way to much.
We had to buy these for a tournament after they ran out of the orginal stuff. Total BS, we had to pay $75 a case. Wasn't very happy. For that price these balls suck. They shreaded in my hopper (Egg 2) while all day before that the balls we had were doing great (X-ball silver/gold).
I wasn't very happy with them. Shreaded in hopper.
field blaze-much better
blue streak-much better but blue streak is crap
frostbite-no caomparison as frostbite is winter shell
midnight-bout the same
evil omen 2.0
stock driver barrel

driver works perfect
sp progressive also shot great
Breaks on target not in barrel
Somewhat thin fill
Not perfect roundness
This paint worked extremely well everytime i have used. It the price recently went up so i no longer use it but would if it ever went back to around 35. The paint has a rather thick shell but breaks easily due to the seem. It flew quite striahgt and almost never missed it mark. Even through my backup spyder it shot better than expected. They do have a tendency to bleed though. I noticed a green residue inside the bags after a couple months with no breaks in the bag. They are also the worst tasting paintballs i have ever used.
Works well at a decent price. I reccomend these if you find them for around 35, other wise there is better to be found.

all american 14 inch
I bought these paintballs and i will never use them again. The only good thing about them is that they're accurate. When you try and roll them they go all over the place. When i shot at the ground it finally broke but the fill was like chalk and was very dull. These paintballs are horrible.
I would not reccomend these for anything more than fooling around in the backyard.

I got these balls just after Christmas in high hopes that they would be good balls since they were made by RPS. When i got them home and shot a few the first game that we played, I noticed that they were tailing and spinning very oddly. When i looked a little closer at the balls, I noticed that it had little bumps and things of that sort on them.
Overall, I don't like these balls. They were at a good price, but bad at their job. It might have been that i just got 4 bad bags of balls, but i highly doubt that.
ion, halo tsa backman, 48/3000 lp tank, evil pipes with ultra tip
pmi razzor, barrel kits (duh), do not use rps with progressive
The bright paint?
Chop, very inaccurate
Well i first used these on a field and i couldnt hit crap. Later I had to borrow some paint from someone and they gave me these. Once again i couldn't hit crap and i had a few chops. These are better than brass eagle, but they are dissapointing coming from rps.
-Chops quite a bit
- Doesnt break sometimes (pretty rare)
These paintballs are used as field paint at TAG Hollister, my main paintball field. They sell them for 40 dollars, so being cheaper than most i can find around here, i use them.
Most the time, I really have no problems with these, except the occasional bounce. The largest problem I have ever had was when i chopped three in a row. But the Pirahna had a great trigger pull, but a standard hopper, so i must have overshot it. Also, these curve quite a bit.
All in all, these are good for rec ball and practice. And i reccommend for the price and quality. Because of the bounces and chops, i have to lower this rating to a 7.

Pure Energy 68/3000

Worked well with my Evil barrel,as well as the stock Ion barrel
Easy to find
Lot's of bouncers
I primarily use RPS premium or Allstar,but this paint works well for rec-ball.It's a great paint for the money.You can usually get it for less than $40 a case.Some people have said they get a lot of barrel breaks.I've never had that problem with my Ion.However,my old level 7 Automag likes to break this stuff pretty frequently.If you've got a newer marker,it should work just fine.
Be careful of the paint that comes in sealed bags(not the ones that have twist ties). I don't know why this paint is so different,but I've shot about 2 cases of these,and they've both been very inaccurate.The paint that comes in the regular bags seems to shoot fine.
My biggest complaint is bouncers.If you shoot at 260fps or lower,don't be too suprised if you completely lace an opponent and every round bounces.But it is expected since this is a
pretty low cost paint.
Remember,you get what you pay for,but I think this is a good paint for the money if you can put up with a few inconsistencies and bouncers.
Stinger,Shrapnel,Evil,Diablo,and Empire Engage(the best so far)
Round and Smooth seam
Snot color yellow paint that STINKS really bad absorbs into clothes.
I would rather take my chances with "Shrapnel" since the place I found this place that tells you whats in it before you buy it. The last 4 boxes of Shrapnel I picked up had Ultimate Evil.
Rampage actually shoots decent if you got a mechanical marker or rental, too bad you cant tell what you hit.But for those of you that have High end Electronic markers dont bother.Its like eating a nice steak with a plastic knife and fork.This stuff smells like a bag of a..holes it'll stink up your gear, pods, hopper,car,and friends if they dont stink already.This is Hollywood Sports Parks field paint which they make you buy for $55 a case which is insane and why we dont play there anymore.They should rename it to GARBAGE.
All in all if I hadent been forced to buy this stuff I would NEVER EVER buy this stuff again.
I'll give it a 5 because it does shoot pretty good but the fill quality is poor and STINKS horrible.I strongly recomend spending the extra money for the better quality RPS products out there.
