a barrel that matches the bore of this paint. My 32 Degrees Nyte Stikk was a bit too big for it.
somewhat consistent (for the price)
havent chopped any yet
Paint smells bad sometimes
Paint shape is incosistent
Paint size is somewhat inconsistent
Accuracy = Paint to bore match.
what that means is: Different brands of paintballs are sized differently. The inner diameter of different barrels are not the same. Paint shoots the best when the size of the paintball is correctly matched to the inner diameter of the barrel.
for example: a $70 dollar barrel with a good paint match will shoot better than a $140 dollar barrel using paint that is too small or too big for it.
Paint test: put the paint in your barrel. If it rolls through and falls out the other side, then the paint is too small. If the paint gets stuck and is incredibly hard to blow out with your mouth, then it is too big. If the paint rolls through with the help of a gentle blow, then it is perfect.
This paint was too small for my 32 Degrees Nyte Stikk ( a barrel which i do not recommend BTW), some paint did fit just right, but most of it just rolled through.
according to ottercustoms.com, which has a great barrel/paint size chart, my bore is around .689 to .691 (i suppose Nyte Stikks are made inconsistenly and thats why it gives me more than 1 measurement) and Big Balls are supposed to be .689 to .691 which explains why some balls fit very well and others did not.
I f you have a nyte stick i would try to find something that matches your barrel better.
The only paints that are readily available to me are Stingers and Big Ball.
Stingers are way to small for the nyte stickk. all the paint jsut rolls
This is okay practice/rec paint. It fits well with medium sized barrels. This is average paint. Its nothing special. if you can find something cheaper that isnt Brass Eagle go ahead and get it. If there isnt anything else you don't need to stay away.
I got from wal mart
One of the most used paintballs
Impulse vision cant detect these black paintballs but that dont mean anything really
I went to wal mart bought 1000 black and purple fill big ball paintballs i went paintballing really accurate great paint it was cheap only cost 22$ kinda hard to rate because the A5 shoots anything fine anyways i like this paint alot its good paint. anyways when you go paintballing pick box of this stuff up and you wont regret getting it its cheap good paint and from wal mart and walmarts are everywhere even the Philippians.
none these paintballs will be horrible in any barrel.
Cool color, and cheap $45 a case
Everything balls are shaped weird, and are hard to break
Ok these balls are horrible, i went out and bought a case and when i got home i opened them up, when i got a good look at them i named them hexagon balls because thats what there shaped like. These balls have all kinds of flat spots and dimples, they are also shape almost exactly like an oval. They also break REALLY bad the shells are brittle and hard (i wouldnt want somebody shooting them at me).
Just dont buy this paint thats all there is to it, yeah sure you can go buy it if you want but there gonna curve real bad and ALOT will break in your barrel.

Cheap, thats about it
Break in barrel
Don't break on target
These balls suck. When I bought I wasn't expecting much because of the price, but these were ridiculous. Only about 10% of the balls were actually round. When I tried them out I would fire at the same place and they would end up about 30 feet apart. Also when they did actually hit the target a lot of time they didn't even break. I'm not sure if it was just the case I happened to pick or what but these are definitely the worst balls I have ever played with.
Don't buy these paintballs, even for the price they suck.

Ok so i jsut got my vs1 last week and had a half case of nelson hot spot left over. I took it over to my friends house with the stock barrel and it shot great. Later that day i bought a case of big ball which i paid 20 dollars more for. My friends have always used this paint so i thought it must be pretty good. I shot it and it was curving like crazy. I jsut could not get it to shoot straight. It may not be the paint it self but it was a bad size for my barrel. It shot really bad. I ended up having to turn down my velocity really far to even get it to shoot somewhat straight. I went and bought another case of hotspot and it was shooting fine again. I had a ver bad expierence with big ball, it could of been my barrel. I did notice that they shell was very rubbery and flimsey. It was comparrable to the low end paint zap. Very bad shape.
Dont get it. Save yourself 20 dollars and get hot spot.

I used these balls today in my dads Triumph eXT in all of the modes and my brother used them in his Custom Pro. While I opened the box I noticed that alot of these balls were broken, and some were deformed. So when I fired them with my dads eXT on semi they were pretty accurate and I didnt have any breaks. But when I changed through all of the modes I had breaks and inaccuracy. The breaks werent just chops, but they would break in the barrel, and sometimes when they just get out of the barrel.
These balls when using just semi and shooting slow to a decent walk, they are pretty decent. But walikg fast, full auto, and anything that will shoot fast just doesnt work.
Well I only tested RPS Big Ball paintballs, and let me say I wasn't too impressed. These paintballs weren't the worst paint I've used but were the worst I've used from the PMI/RPS line of paint. These paintballs are a little better than average but since some were dimpled in my case of 1000 I would say that that brings down the rating. Some pluses to the Big Balls are that they are cheap and they don't bust in your gun. In the end if you want cheap paint thats about average buy some RPS Big balls.
Cheap paint that I give a average rating to because of lack of consistency.
ball flies all over the place, fill is not bright, breaks in barrel
I target practice from 75 ft. away with a Red dot scope so I can get an Idea of how accurate a ball is. 1 out of 5 shots would hit near or on the target and the rest would be anywhere from 1 to 3 ft. away sometimes missing the piece of plywood completely. You can actually see the ball curving way before it hits near the target. I will never buy a PMI product again, I was very dissapointed.
Spend a little more money and buy Draxxus Dusk,Draxxus Heat or Draxxus Midnights, they are a much better ball with brighter fill and seem to fit a variety of barrels alot better.

Umm.. cool name?
Well... got it cause it had the RPS name on it (newb thought it would be good). only $30 it has to be good. wrong
it was pink fill which was rather thick for that cheap of a paint which is a plus.
i was dissapointed at the highly visible seams on EVERY ball.
it was not very accurate (unlike Empire Engage. awesome paint) and hooked in various directions when i fired it.
i must mention it was probably sitting on the shelf for a while as i bought it because it was winter. then i tested my marker through the winter (it was new had to use it) i used it in one game and was very dissapointed. although my friend hit me with it lol.
Overall it chops, has crappy seams, and hooks like a prize fighter. i will not buy this again
2 cause my friend managed to tag me and it shoots with thick fill.
