OK, so we?ve got a thing for red-shelled paintballs. Call it a weakness. We took our already great Scorch paint and made it even better. Visible Impact paintballs pack tournament-grade value into a field-priced paintball. Red shell/orange fill. Visible Impact comes out of your marker laser-straight, and always breaks on target with a heavy-bodied, bright fill. Of course, Visible Impact has a non-toxic, biodegradable fill and shell that washes off easily with just water. Did we mention all of our paintballs are made for us by ProCaps - the same folks that make the best paintballs in the world?
The Game Face Visible Impact Paintballs are newer, so they should be commonly available.
Big Ball (PMS) A little harder shell
Smart Parts Ion Stock Set-up
3500 Compressed Air
Can get them anywhere(Got mine From Wal-mart)
One Shell Color- Red
Well I picked there paintballs from my local Wal-Mart just to have a couple of recreational games @ Local Paintball Field. I was surprised with the accuracy of the Balls. Dead-On accuracy, shot straight in a line. Didn't chop one Ball. Bought 3 boxes of 500 of these at Wal-Mart for $30, with a box of "Big Balls from PMS; to test them out.
These were a little more consistant breaking on target.
Great Ball for recreational players . Short on money . or not. Great ball. Get's a little plain with red shell, But hey!? who wants pretty balls that don't fly straight?
Visible impact has lots of bright pink fill that can easily be seen. the shell is round and shoots very straight. The shell sometimes is too hard and will take a bounce, but rarely. There is better paint that is more consistant, but this is still good. My friends and i use this to practice and we really like it. i reccommend it to anyone wanting to practice.

GREAT fill, very few dimpled. NO breaks.
Once again the Wally World paint proves a bargain buy well worth getting! I was a big fan of the Scorch balls (and the great case they came in) for the price. The Impact balls seem pretty much the same, but maybe an improved shell. Same great fill (brightest you can get in the whole sport - THICK pink). I shot 1500 and I chopped one, because I forgot to turn on my hopper and it didn't feed fast enough, so that was my fault. NO breaks at the fault of the balls, even when my tank was overfilled and they were shooting 350 + fps! Great accuracy and very few dimples. I highly recommend them, and love to let people use them who turn their nose up at $38 Walmart paint, when they just spend $60 on a case of "premium" paint.
2. Fairly cheap
3. Easy to find (in every Walmart)
Breaks on Target
Last forever in storage
Easy to see for aiming
Get ragged on for buying paintballs from Walmart
So I bought these instead of the Scorch due to Walmart not selling it anymore in the 1500 count. The very first day I tried them, I was hooked! $38 for 2000 rounds! They fly straight, and I havent chopped one yet! My friends also used them at PEV's in Leesburg, VA this past weekend and they didnt have any issues either. Better than the $65/case paint that they were selling at the field. If you are looking for sweet paint, buy this stuff...Just dont take the boxes I am going to be buying =)
Edit 9/2/07: So I have played with these for over a year now, gone through about 24,000 rounds, and all I can say is WOW! They changed the color to red/yellow shell, with the same great pink fill. The fill is super thick, and they always break on target. i knwo a lot of people say that phrase, but it is true. I have had 1, yes just 1, barrel break in my VS2, and that was due to me forgetting to turn on the hopper. I also never use the eyes on my VS2, so I am sure that comes into play! Anyways, I traded a guy a pod of his Draxxus Gold for a pod of my Visible Impact, and he even admitted that he thought it was great paint. You can go with all the pear pressure---buying $65 a case paint, but I can shoot the same or better with a good box of this $38 a case paint. Now then, I only play woodsball, so I cant say how they would be for speedball. I know that is speedball you want a brittle paint, and these are a little tougher which is good so every little leaf is making the ball break. I have tried to go to other balls, such as Stingers, and I had so many bounces I spent a lot of extra rounds trying to get them to break on someone. I have NEVER, I MEAN NEVER, had a bounce with these.
If you open the case at Walmart (which they dont like FYI) and you see dimples, these things are WAY past being crap. I have used these that are 5 months old, and they still worked great. Trust me when I say this, I will never play with another kind of paintball. Unless you are a tournament player, you dont need anything more.
Buy it. Great cheap paint.

-DOP 7'' drop
-DOP X-chamber (8 stages)
-Rocket cock 2
-side velocity screw (allows me to change velocity without a tool)
-daisy red dot point sight
-braided steel hose
-Thick shell, but still breaks on impact.
None so far
Berfore i used these, i lived on scorch paint. Well scorch stopped selling, and these came out to take their place. I love these things! A must for woodsball players, has a dark shell, which means its hard to see, but a bright pink fill, easy to see. Work great with my whisper. I recomend these to all tippmann owners who play woodsball.
40 bucks at walmart. At least try them out, buy a thousand or so and see how you like them, what could it hurt? Just because they're cheap in price, does NOT mean they are cheap in performance.
9 out of 10 because NOTHING is perfect.

Monster Ball (Garbage)
Wild Streak (Garbage)
Blue Streak (Garbage)
(I'm starting to see a pattern)
J$J Ceramic 14 in.
Small Boreed barrels
Breaks good for cheap paint
cleans easy,good for backyard
Kinda easy to wipe
I got these at walmart and i had been used to crappy fill so i was amazed at the bright fill. iloved them great for theiir price good chewap paint i like them alot because the price the fill and the breakibility.
Seems light weight, but I haven't weighed it
Do you know that feeling when you try to put two magnets together at the wrong ends and they repel each other in different directions just before they touch? That's what my day at the field was like playing with this stuff. My shots were hooking all over the place and it was almost impossible to hit where I was aiming. I had to rely on accuracy by volume to have a decent chance of hitting anyone, but a lot of easy shots of wide open, unsuspecting players went to waste because I couldn't hit them before they took cover. This paint is cheap and convenient, but it ruined my game last weekend.
I'm disappointed and perplexed. How the hell does Impact score a 9.1? Every ball appeared to have a dimple on it. EVERY BALL!!! God walmart fugin sucks! All their paint must be ancient by the time it's sold for it to be in that condition. If you find it at walmart, avoid. You're better off using the two bags of Evil you've had sitting in your closet for the past four to five months.
I have used stryker and monster balls and they arent no where near as good
I dont really have a steady gun right now but.
Any thing would work.
These paintballs are awesome. the fact that they are pink makes it even better. there aint nothing I would rather do then paint people pink. these paintballs are okay in accuracy and they are really CHEAP. and I dont mean in quality either. they bust real easy on impact and because they do they sometimes chop in my gun. but that dont stop me from using them , hey , most paintballs break every now and then. these paintballs also last real long to. to me these are the perfect paintballs for the price.
if you want some cheap paintballs to use just around the house or playing somewhere with friends then these are perfect. but for tournements I might buy some more expensive ones
I bought these cheap from Wal-Mart $35 for a case when I got to the field and took them out of the bag I noticed a good 5% of them were broken or dimpled. They don't always break when they hit but they ARE accurate. The ones that aren't broken dont break in your barrel. They are a bright red color so If your a woodsballer you might get seen shooting with these.
Buy these if you just play once in a while. If your a more serious paintballer and you want decent paint for around the same price I suggest Big Ball.
draxxus rec sport
a few other field paint's I cant remember the names of
Custom Black Spyder pilot acs
I used the stock and my 14" thunderpig
Pink Fill (so u know who u hit)
Shell color is easy to track
Some dimples and soft balls (not many) 2-3 % tops
Although some of the ball's do break and have imperfections it is not many at all. I use the paint at a byop field and feel it is worth the money. For $40 you can get 2000 balls at your local walmart wich is convinient and cheap. There are more accurate better paint there is no doubt about it. But for my use and the cost it's worth it.
Overall I would recomend it and use it again. Its accurate and reliable but most of all its cheap and convenient. I have found it just as good if not better than the field paint's I have bought for FOR $80-$100 A CASE. I dont play tornament so this paint is perfect for my recreational use and I am sure it will suit you as well. I dont recomend it for tornaments which is why it gets an 8 but its a 10 for rec ball.
