Some buddies and I bought a couple cases of this stuff. Shot with OK accuracy and consistancy. The dark shells made it hard to see the paint leave the barrel, which some might like if your playing woodsball. The fill was bright and thick so you could see breaks from across the feild. I had a barrel break during the first game we played and surprisingly I shot through it in about 4 or 5 shots.
Overall not bad paint for the money. I got it for $40 a case I think. You can get better for the same price but it works.
Visible Impact (better)
X-Ball (the walmart variety) (a little better)
DXS Silver (about the same)
RPS Big Ball (worse)
Spyder Rodeo (Primary marker)
J & J Edge barrel kit
Zap / Archon Hopper gravity fed
32 Degrees spring kit
Evil Delrin Bolt / Stock bolt with venturi removed
Bandit high flow valve
ACI Griffin with stock everything (Was my backup, but it's worn out)
Zap / Archon Hopper
Syndicate Paradox ELE
Spyder Rodeo stock barrel, maybe my J&J Edge kit
Zap / Archon Hopper (The Revvy on this marker would be ironic)
32 degrees remote thick hose
J & J Edge or any barrel kit.
Very bright fill (flourescent yellow-green)
A little pricey for the quality.
I have come across basically four grades of paintballs in my time:
1- low grade. BE, etc.... Don't even buy it.
2-"midgrade paint". Like Diablo Heat, Spank, JT Camo, etc.... which all fail to meet my basic comfort level of marking ability, bounce resistance, breakage in marker.
3-actual mid grade paint. X-Ball, DXS Silver, Visible Impact, Nightmare, Big Ball. All of this paint is fine for rec-ball play and marks fairly well. Price is about $42 bucks and under.
4-Tourney paint. Very good paint at higher prices. Some of this paint is too brittle for rec-ball play.
The reason I list these four grades is that Domination paint is about the same as a lot of the $40 paint but costs about $50 ON SALE. I was between a rock and a hard place and bought some from a local sporting goods store.
Bounce test: about a 6.
Fill thickness: pretty darn good.
Fill quantity: doesn't seem to make a big "splat".
Fill brightness: Very bright indeed. Hard to miss.
Wipeability: Decent. Hardcore cheaters will always cheat anyway. Bright fill helps.
Price: Priced out of its category. MSRP is $59.99. Still cheaper than some field paint.
Accuracy: Seemed really good on testing. I'll update once I measure some groupings.
It is not really a value. Only buy it if you have to.

Uneven shell thickness
OK, I usually stick with Xball Silver. It is, in my opinion, one of the best values in paintball, when bought in bulk. You can find these for as low as forty a case, but you will have to buy four or more. My normal online retailer was out, so I was forced to go to the local store to pick some up. My only options were JT tactical balls(camo balls? seriously?), Monster Ball, and this Domination. I had to pay more, as this was a physical store. They had this stuff listed at seventy dollars, it was on special for fifty. Yeah. They didn't even buy me dinner before this one. A quick check online yielded results as low as thirty-seven dollars a case. But i needed them right away and couldn't wait for shipping. Now to the actual testing.
Right away, you may become concerned that the fill color shines through on the sides of the ball. I got some silver shell/green fil. I could see the fill through the shell, but not around the seams. The body was either too thin, or the seams were too thick. Either way, this ball is inconsistant. I tested it with the setup above, using a .689 insert. I had 2 breaks in 10 shots. After upping the insert to .693, I was shooting ropes. After two hoppers of test, there wasn't a single break. Because the shell was inconsistant, there were a few wild shots. These were maybe one in every 30 shots. At 25 yards, I was able to put balls on top pf each other. They averaged inside of a 6-inch circle. At 35 yards, these were falling into about a 14-inch circle. Not bad accuracy for mid-grade paint.
The fill is very thick and bright. While I have only tested this on drums and trees, I don't think wiping will be a problem.
EDIT: I took this stuff to the field for some real testing. While it is still better than other paints I've tried, it didn't perform as well as the testing did. I had a few more breaks. I think around 20-30 in the whole case. So it wasn't terrible, just not great. (Some of the breaks can be attributed to the dead battery in my gun). The markability is still great, though. I think the main problem with this paint is that it reacts to temp change drastically. I was changing inserts after every game. I went as low as a .687, then as high as a .695! It was a cloudy day and the sun would pop in and out. My advice is to be sure you use a bore size slightly larger than the ball, as this paint can be testy and fragile.
All-in-all this is very solid paint. It's a great value that I would be willing to use in a tourney. While my mainstay is Xball, this paint is a good second place. This may be the best mid-grade paint you will find at this price. Because the shell is inconsistant, you will get a few wingers. WIth all that in mind, it gets a nine.
EDIT: This is still ok paint. Its a bit tempermental and requires constant bare sizing to make sure it hasn't changed size too much. the shell is just too reactive to temp changes. That's a bit of a pain. While I won't be switching to this paint full time, it can still be a back up paint. With the shell issues making me swab my barrel once a game, I have to drop my rating down to a 7. Just above average. When its sized right, it flys straight and marks well, but it might change sizes on you in the middle of a game!

Bright colored balls
Bright neon yellow fill
Hard to wipe
Balls are very brittle
They broke in the barrel
Easy to chop
I used this paint on both my tippman and my spyder and they were both breaking balls left and right. Even with my slow tippmann the balls were breaking in the barrel and being chopped. These balls have very bad accuracy, even from short ranges. I would never buy this paint again due to its overall poor quality.
This paint is not worth buying, even if you have a slow firing gun. I was very upset with the quality of paint from suck a good company. If you are going to buy any product from wgp get a gun.
I bought these paintballs thinking they would be good because they were wgp. So I bought some and I went to go playthe balls wre all lumpy and very soft. I wouldn't
recommend this paint to any one if you want some very ceap paintballs go get monster by brass eagle they are better than these.

Nice and thick fill
A strange color fill
I don't have much experience with paintball yet, having only been playing for a little of six months. However I would say that all around I had a great experience with this paint, there were only a few dimpled ones and not one broken ball all day of playing. They were dead on accurate with my .687 back and 16" front.
I reccoumend that you give it a try cause it works great for the price.
I have used:
-and some others
Smart parts ion with red body kit, custom barrel, pure energy nitro 48ci, viewloader evolution II with Z board
This paintballs can be used with almost every barrel out there, but if you use a good barrel, like a flatline, freak, jt, etc.. they are awesome.
-Breaks on contact
-Hard to clean
The shell its a lil' thin, few colors and they get old
Well, I have been using these paintballs for some months, and I can say that they quite good. Since I use them I have NEVER had a chop, they dont break so easily as other people say (even though the shell its a little thin). About these paintballs I can also say that they have an excelent accuarcy, even with stock barrels, if you are using a good barrel they are flawless. They have an excelent price, I pay for a 2000 box 40 dollars. Domination Paintballs are harder to clean than normal balls, something i really love. And if you keep moving your paintballs every day they will keep a perfect round form.
If you can get them, buy them, I guarantee you will be satisfied
Edit- They lose they quality if you have them for a long amount of time, They will break very easily, even in the hopper. So if you are going to get them dont let them get old.

All the other leading brands plus a lot of the budget brands.
B2k4 with pure energy low pressure tank and evo2 with y-board. 2004 Vert feed cocker with freak as backup.
Works fine on my freak and stock barrels.
Price, quality and really cool color.
I use these all the time now. They are cheap at ace hardware. And are perfectly round. And have nice hard shells that break on the target not in your gun. Are very brightly colored. [The coolest looking paintballs out there.] The fill is thick and shows up very nicely on targets.
I dont know why the people above had such bad performance. Because ive shot a lot of different paints and worr domination is almost professional quality. Its shoots straight and seldom breaks.
Id definately try it if you see it. For such a low price the performance is premium. Its dang good paint. So because of price i give it a ten.
Right out of the box i noticed something unusual....the seams in the paintballs were massive. i then decided maybe to check the site and sure enough there was an explanation for this. The paint is designed to be extremely brittle when hitting a target but be tough out of the marker. still skeptical i loaded my marker and shot a string of paint...every paintball broke on target and i had no breaks in my marker.
I have put about 4500 rounds of this paint through my marker and have yet to have a problem. i do however purchase my paint from my local pro shop...some people may be forced to buy paint online or from a course in which they may have bad results. i would recommend this paint to anyone from woods to rec to tourney type players
