68/45 DXS air tank
.689 or smaller. You REALLY should go smaller
fill (nice and thick)
Shell (see review)
OK well this paint is ok. Compared to other stuff though, it kinda sucks. But you can get it for cheap and it does shoot so why not. But it is really small, so the smallest bore size you can find would probably be best. Now the shell is not the best, actually it is kinda really bad. Not quite Monster ball bad, but bad. It is really hard, kind of like ... cement hard. thats a good word for it.
If you got the money, then dont get this stuff. Get the next best one your proshop sells, it is probably ten times better than this for a few bucks more.
A5 with RT, 14"JT barrel, polished internals, HPA, double trigger.
14"JT barrel .68
Cheap(33$/case).Good thickness.Good viscosity.Washes out easy
Funky Color. Random egg shaped balls. Dries like wax.
I have used these balls on and off for the last year, and all in all I am satisfied with them. They have been very consistent with their performance. Of course they are not marbs, or anything DIABLO, but for 33 bucks a case you really cant go wrong. Very rarely will i find seems on these balls. I have NEVER had one of these break in my marker. EVER! I will have the occasional ball that hooks like a boomerang, but they are typically when im shooting at weird angles or something. I have only used them for speedball, no scenario, or woodsball, and thats mostly what i play, so i dont know how they perform in the sticks.
Use em. They're dirt cheap, and a pretty solid performer.
Better than rocks
BTW: If it doesnt break KEEP SHOOTING :)

Overall great paint for the price ($30bux a case). i thought about the price when purchasing this paint and expected crap. However a minor flat spot here and there in a case and great quality get a 10 in my book. a great alternate to monsterballs for 4 bux more. They are a bit stinky like feet so i dont think id like to taste it. noted that it is a thick fill and ive been shooting at 32-38 degrees with co2 and HPA and theyre great.
Highly reccommended for cost and quality. I revised the rating down due to the seams causing inconsitant shots but for the price you can beat it. anything beyond 60-70 feet the flight was off.

The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.
Period of Product Use:
Less than a month
Similar Products Used:
Spectrum white box
Crossfire 45/4500 LP
Viewloader VLocity Jr. with Gangstar chip
.691, although I think the paint was fairly small
shoots more like tourney paint
Clear/green glitter fill hard to see
Doesn't wash easy
The balls tend to be of a consistent size, seams are good. Accuracy is similar to tourney grade. They last pretty well in storage, but smell worse than most.
For all the paintballs I've ever shot, I'm used to... well, PAINT. In the case of Origin, however, it's almost indescribable as to what exactly is inside.
The fill is kind of a cloudy-clear substance that has green glitter in it. When freshly applied to your opponent, It is very hard to see, even close up. After drying, the fill turns to a tacky PASTE. I can't think of anything quite like it at the moment, except for processed cheese spread or the innards of a fig newton, but thicker. It's like someone made a gummi bear bleed!
Trying to clean it from your gear is nasty. It doesn't wash off clothes very easy because it clumps and you have to pick it off with a fingernail. I was lucky and didn't get any gun breaks from being shot, but I'm worried that it could easily clog up a gun if you had a barrel break or a chop - regular paint washes off, this stuff becomes tacky.
EDIT: I have been meaning to reevaluate this, but have put it off for quite some time. Sorry!
I have since talked to several store/field owners, all of which claim the gummy effect is a good thing. I broke a ball in the marker (due to using too small of a bore), and I can confirm that it is a bit easier - the paint doesn't seep into cracks as easily. However, I would still assume that if you were to let it sit, the paint would be hard to remove.
Re-evaluating this product, I have mixed feelings. The manufacture is very good, but the fill color and gumminess is something I still haven't become accustomed to. My main concern after re-evalutation is the problem with clothing: It needs to be picked off with a fingernail before washing, then requires several washes before it's completely gone.

not Exactly sure. Specifcly not the Smart parts 20 inch tactical
Broke in my barrel
didnt break on contact
I went to a local Speedball field with a few buddies and since its field paint only we bought what they had, Origin, and loaded up for our first game. I noticed the balls werent breaking much but since i figured it was cheap i didnt care....until a kid was rushing me and i hit him 3 times without one break. He gogged me, and of course it broke. Also, through out the day i had 4 balls break in my barrel. Rather dissapointing =/
I really dont reccomend using it since it didnt break very often, except in your barrel.
Pretty much every PMI/RPS paint, 32 deg., BE,VL,JT,Almost every Draxxus/diablo paint.

i used the .689 back from my pepperstickz kit. Teammate used my .686 hammerhead bore. Paint runs .684-.687ish Occasionally a oddball .689ish
Very consistant (one of most consistant paints ive used)
Breaks on contact
Fill isnt really bright, light offset teal/green color..
Used these over the weekend at my team practice, I didnt have high hopes of this paint.. especially with the price of 45 and it being practice grade paint. But WOW! was i suprised... Always broke on contact, not one barrel break, not one chop.
This paint is very consistant, and its a small bore. Roughly .684-.687 bore.. i was using a. 689 but it shot great. Rest of my team was using between .684 and .689 and it shot great also. Occasionally there was a oddball that was about .689-to .691 but they still shot out of the small bore barrels.
The fill in this paint isnt the greatest, but its better then some paints. Its a light offset teal/green mint type color, not real thick.. but not watery. It was easy to wipe off after a game, but still noticeable that you hit someone.
Overall a great paint! blew my expectations out of the water, and will be buying alot of this stuff from now on. At 45 a case its a great value, not 1 barrel break,chop and stuff is accurate. Also very few dimples from what i seen.
Cant wait to try out rest of origins line of paint, these guys def. know what thier doing!

I use these paintballs more than any other, simpilly cause there the best buy in my book, a case is only $46.25 and pretty much everyone of em busts. Another good thing about these is they dont bust on every tree branch they hit. Id suggest these for speedball cause there more of a tournament style paint to me "dissagree if you want"
But there pretty Decent in the woods as well overall there a good buy.
If your local shop selles these bad boys id get em. I guarentee you will like them.
Only other paintballs I bought from Command Post -Don't remember the names
no accessories yet
Good for woods ball especially when shooting through brush
Fairly cheap-$15 for 500
The only weakness is there is dimples but not an outrageous amount
I recently bought these this summer and they work great with my Tac One. I easily can shoot through the brush and the accuracy is great.Never had 1 break with these yet and I have been in many battles with my friend's at my house.They also break on contact but don't break on every twig which is a bonus.I was owning my friends while their crappy wild streaks bounced off of me.
Try them- you will not be disappointed for the price

Small bore size and hard
Me and my friend went to a field to play at and they had xball bronze and origin basic training. We didnt really know much about the origin paint and we knew the xball paint was decent so we bought that. The xball paint seemed to alright but it was around 10 bucks more than origin. When we got our next case, we decided to save a little money so we bought origin. My friend and I both thought it shot wonderful and we had no chops or beaks. At times it was a little innaccrate but it was great. This paint got blenty of bounces since it is so hard. This paint is probably one of the best paint for the money. I will def. buy this paint more often.
This paint is awsome for the price. But make sure you have a small bore barrel/ barrel back.
