Paint is really round, no dimples; good colors that really show when a hit is made. They have a good trajectory, fly straight. Extremely cheap. Grab 'em while you can, before they gain in popularity and get expensive.
They STINK! They smell really bad...
I'm using a CO2 system with Smart Parts All American medium bore (black/black). FPS ranging from 280-375. Snap shooting and/or sniping - no ball breakage. Compared to a few other paints such as PMI Premium; several Diablo products. I get same results in accuracy without spending as much. Only the other ones don't smell as bad...
Breaks Easy, Inexpensive, Fairly Accurate, no Deformations
It Breaks TOO easy, causes alot of Ball Break and Barrel and it give me a major headache because I had like NO accuracy if i fanned the trigger during a game.
I really hated these things today. I broke about 2 every game, and ive firing 8000 rounds of Various Brands through the gun, without a SINGLE BREAK! Until now! They are good because they break on target. Decent paintballs, they would be good with a low pressure gun though.....

None because it isnt going to come out in one peice even if you have the biggest bore possible.
If you want bad accuracy then this paint is for you.
Everything, but to name some key ones: ball shape, breaking %, and fill strength.
I used this paint in a tournament last weekend and it didn't break for crap. In fact I had quite a but left over about a bag and a half but that is irrelevant. Anyway I was practicing two one ones etc. and I would shoot the ground in habit and balls would actually bounce. I had my gun chrono'd to 280FPS exactly and they would BOUNCE off the ground and not break. In fact 2 out of 5 balls did this and I was very angered by this because everytime I would actually hit the person that I was shooting at it would bounce them and not break thus screwing me because I was never able to shoot them out.
This paint does not break even when shooting the ground from 3 feet away at 280FPS. Simple and plain don't waste your money when there are better paints you can by like XO etc.

Since I need one, they are legally considered paintballs.
Thick rubbery shell
Wow, played a tournament with this stuff. Everyone complained, this stuff was atrocious. A friend of mine threw this stuff at a sheet of plywood 15 feet away, and got 8/10 to bounce off. Even standing ten feet away and throwing as hard as we could, none of the breaks were really "breaks". The seam would split, and paint would kind of kick out in a line, but no real bursts. The fill was super lame, and soaked into jerseys and shirts. Today at practice, we shot the rest of the paint, and we got about 1/4 of the balls to bounce off the ground being shot at 260 from an 03 Shocker. Thats rediculous for paint that was fresh for a tourney to bounce from guns off the ground after being in pods overnight. We sized a random sampling of 50 balls from a bag, the day of the tourney, and got sizes from .683 to .697. The seam stuck out like a frisbee, and resulted in this stuff going everywhere but straight. This stuff sucks, theres no reason to buy this, unless you want to switch it for your friends paint as a joke, and watch him get pissed when it doesnt shoot straight and bounces everywhere.
Dont buy TC, their paint is bad. I wouldnt recommend this to anyone. Go save some bucks and shop at walmart. I'm giving this a two only because it DID come out of my barrel, and they do have paint in them. It's just hard to get it to come out.
32 degrees best for price
Core great rec, if on sale cheap
Fenix,E99 Avant (smart parts bolt), Crossfire airtank, VL Revolution loader, Empire barrel kit
My team used it at a scenario game, I have to admit I was looking forward to using it given its reputation. It drizzled on and off. The paint lost all accuracy even with the proper barrel size. The rest of the time it was soup. All five of my team have truly came to despise our leftover paint.
Try it, maybe they gave us the oldest stuff they had. Not a good way for the field and paint company to get us as repeat customers.
Way to much to list everything but ...
2 Minimags. One on nitro one on co2
2 Tippy Customs.
All with expansion chanbers and regulators.
J&J ceramic is a perfect fit for these balls. I now have a J&J on all of our markers.
few breaks, thick visible fill, uniform diameter, good as paint costing $60-70 bucks. CHEAP!!!!
I cant get them locally. They taste bad.
He told me thier teams uses venoms exclusivly . He convinced me to give them a try. Once I did I have never looked back. (Shop4paintball is a great company. I have found that you must call them to find out what colors they have available. They go through so many that the website is never accurate. The venoms arrive at their plant directly from TC and are about a week old by the time you get them.)
I have since convinced others at our field to try them and now they only use them as well.
The fill is thick, and cant be wipped. The colors are very bright and are hard to miss. Breaks on target but not in the hopper or barrel.
When used in combination with a 14 in J&J ceramic barrel, they are very accurate, and I would recomend the J&J.
Used in all of our markers and many others at our field, with the same results.
I highly recomend the venoms. Great paint at a great price, (about $40.00 per case)

I played last week with this paint. Since I don't play speed ball and I play rec I thought this paint would be good for the field I play at (jungle-island, Lake Elsinore, CA) Anyways, I was surprised how many of the balls wer edimpled! Granted the paint had been in the garage for a couple of weeks but I was shocked that so many were that way!
I also broked a few but they did clean right out and it DID not require me to squeegee the barrel.
If you can get it cheap, get some and try it but I won't use it anymore.
automag with 10inch taso stainless barrel (shoots like a boom stick) benchmark drop forward, vl 12vt revvy with Xboard. kingman/java 68ci 3000psi nitro tank
I've used this paint here and there and I've found it ain't bad. Quite round shell, hard shell so excellent for woods play. Quite cheap. This is not a speedball ball because the shell is hard, it's not the best ball I've shot as far as breaking on the target. I've also chopped quite a few with my mag. Out of about a case I'd say I've chopped about 10 balls, that's bad even for a mag, but nothing to p.m.s. about.
All in all a good ball if you're on a budget and want straight shooting balls. Just avoid using them in speedball.
lots of barrel breaks, curves when dry & overpriced at the meets & everywhere elese
well, I am new at this, but I tell you there quality control is pretty bad, they hit hard,which makes for pain when you get hit, @$18 I rather have cheap proball paint, but of course they aren't allowed on the TC paintball fields! after the mid-grade paint that I can berly afford, it's time to downgrade field paint, maybe I will have better luck. I had an average of 1 barrel break per game of speedball, and on the back course, 2 breaks in 20 minutes and my gun is a semi-auto! Save your dough and buy something Else. Unless you have a grand to sink into a gun, these aren't the balls for you.
Don't buy and if you have too, buy the cheapest TC paintballs possible!
