i dont recommend these paintballs
well if you like cleaning your barrel after every other shot go for these
not good paint for the price. maybe i jsut got a bad batch but my friends cocker was doing the same thing mine was. religiously breaks paint. won't ever use again. my friend just gave the rest of his paint away. might work with walmart guns but not the jts or cockers. i used this with my stingray a while back and they worked fine.
don't buy this paint unless you just wanna paint your gun or something. they break in the barrel worse than BE.

For Wal-Mart paint, this is about as good as you can get. I've bought several cases in the past few years and haven't ben dissapointed yet. While it tends to be the most expensive of the paint at Wal-Mart, it has outpreformed all of the cheap field paint I've used. The balls have good consistency with very few dimples or bumps. The shell is very tough which means less breaks in the barrel, but many times it will not break at a distance. Overall, it obviously isin't he best out there, but it's good for the price.
I'd recommend this paint to anyone who shoots a marker you could buy at Wal-Mart. If you have a cheaper marker, buy cheaper paint (we're trying to be economical here, right?). If you have a more expensive marker, then act like a more refined player and buy a decent case of paint from your local field.
Break on target not in gun
good thick fill
no big equator lines
None what so ever.
These balls performed really well. I used them in woodsball out of my pro/carbine with a truflight barrel. They shot straight most of the time and were consistantly round. Other than that they were just average paintballs. When I shot people with them I was easy to tell that they were out from a long distance. There isn't much more to say other than that paintballs are paintballs.
Great for the price

Smart Parts Progressives -- good paint to barrel match
Sort of hard
Sort of oily
For a while I was using the RPS Marballizers but I found that they NEVER broke for me and I was getting frustrated with the amount of "NO BREAKS!" i was hearing during play --not to mention the $40 pricetage for 1000. I play a lot of woodsball so I also want paint that has a fairly hard shell to make it through some thin brush and not split or splatter, yet be able to break on my opponent when i'm in the game. The Super Swirls seemed to do well for me. I recently went through over a thousand of these for a big woods CTF game and they did extremely well for my marker setup at the time.
I was shooting my Spyder Imagine 04 with a 16" SP Progressive, CO2, and a basic 200rd. gravity feed hopper (because i didnt receive my Halo TSA LCD at the time) and i got a few breaks but it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. I won't blame that on the paint because of the setup. I avoided the full-auto setting due to my hopper, etc, and only broke like 2 or 3 balls with semi-auto. Pretty good seeing as i didnt have a motorized hopper, aftermarket bolt or anything similar. I expected some chop anyways, but there was no way i was going to turn down a 50+ person center flag game just because i didnt have my e-hopper yet.
This paint was extremely accurate and the spread was minimal.
i tested it a few times by just firing a fairly steady stream of paint while on semi-auto, and i was landing %95 of my paint in the same area. At first i was skeptical at how this paint was going to fire because i did my usual test of dropping the ball through my barrel to see if it rolled straight through or stopped, and it rolled right through. This lead me to believe that i had too much space and i failed to match my caliber size correctly. that will be solved in the future though because i recently discovered a caliber chart for everything. to my surprise, the paint shot awesome. it actually shot better then the Marballizer paint, which had a better caliber match to my barrel. i think with the Marbs though, i wasnt getting as much distance because of the amount of friction they had inside my barrel. although with long streams of paint, my barrel was throwing off a lot of excess CO2 with the Super Swirls, so i dont think i'm conserving as much air as i could be. that's my fault though.
All-around awesome paint, as long as you match your bore size, etc. I recommend this paint to anyone looking for a good price and an even better performing paint. I play with vets who still use this. Good choice.
It's very accurate (at least it is with my gun)
It always breaks
I shot about 500 rounds and didn't have a ball break
It has a thick paint so you can see it break
It's made by RPS
It's not very expensive
I didn't see anything wrong with them
Anyone can use these paintballs for tournaments or rec ball. I bought mine at wal-mart and they still shot very well. Even though they were old. So they'd be really good when they're new. Anyone reading this, you need to try these paintballs.
RPS BIG BALL- GET THEM ASAP
DBX practice grade-soso
Spyder Shutter Java Editon Black, Stock
Maybe only 1 or 2 chops per 500
a lil $ but worth it
At the time when i got these, i had a BE Eradicator. And as all of you know BE has a bad reputation for there products. When i got these paintballs i had just started out and i got the BE Eradicator Kit and i picked these paintballs out as they looked awsome( almost like marbelizers). I opened the box in my moms car and some were broken(about 5-10). Well i took the good ones and cleaned them off so they were not drooping with paint. I loaded them up, put my CO2 on and fired away. These paintball were amazing, AND WORKING IN A BE GUN. Not only did they work in a BE gun i only had 3 or 4 chops out of 500. I was very amazed on the quality. Made by RPS, there gonna be good.
Accruacy- taking it from me, and a BE gun the accruacy of these paintballs are about a 7 in a BE gun. Currently i have a spyder shutter, and much better than a BE gun. I am willing to try these out in my Spyder. If they work good in a BE gun, they will sure defintly, work good in your gun. I guarentee it. The paintballs have a good accuracy- I shot my mailbox from 100 feet away with these and my BE gun.
Tough Shell- Talk about tough. The shell is very tough and will surely go through twigs and branches in the woods.
Colors- Dont mistake these for Marbelizers( look almost the same). The shell is a light green with green and black swirls, with a light green fill. Medium fill . Not thin and not thick. just right.
Availibility- If you go to your local Walmart, im sure you will find these right next to all the other paintballs. They are in a green and black case. Cant miss 'em.
Price- A box of 500 at walmart cost me around $13-15, which is not bad considering that BE paintballs are about the same and suck monkey balls.
Accuracy- In a BE 7. In my Spyder- Prolly a 8 or 9, maybe even a 10
Colors-11, i mean 10.
Price-uhhh, eeeee, ahhh, yikes $14-8

Spyder Xtra- AA Barrel (accurate as HELL)- Supafly Bolt (The best bolt for spyders)- IPI Trigger Frame (Fastest Trigger Frame ever)- 20 oz Co2 Pure energy
When I opened these they were half broken and all ruined. I tried them out anyway and the suxed. They curved all over the place or broke in my barrel. I couldn't hit squat. There was one that was good that i squeezed (barley) and it broke. Just a warning never get these paintballs.
These paintballs sux. Dont get these unless you are desprate like i was when i got them.
blue 2003 core sharc
14 in empire twister barrel
20 oz co2 can
none, these paintballs should be taken off of the market
1 in 2 get out of the barrel
fill looks like barf
break in barrel
this is the worst paintball imaginable. it's fill sucks, if one hits you some one will think that you are sick. I don't get it, they have a very hard shell, and bounce off of everything you hit, yet they break all of the time in your barrel. Some of the seams did not even match up completly. When Me and my friends decided to try out this ball we each got 200. with 5 different kinds of barrels it sucked. the best scenario is that the ball would make it fifty feet and take a hard left. in a game one time I had gotten hit and was standing on the sidelines way out of harm when a ball curved a 30 degree turn and hit me right in the throat, it sucks to get hit in the throat.
I would give this product a 0 but i'm upping the score because I feel that it is a paintball and it is better than throwing cans of paint. but just barely
