PMI Premium, Marbilizer, Brass Eagle, House paint, Zap.
Trilogy Competition (stock)
I dont know
Price, 200 round packages if you just want to test, convient at sportmart etc, accurate.
Thin shell, stinks, oily fill, dimples, small bore?
I just bought a 200 case today because i wanted to test my new trilogly competition. I only popped off about 25 rounds but i will edit this post later when i shoot more (maybe tomorrow, if not soon). But from what i have found out, they seemed pretty accurate while i was shooting from about 15 feet. maybe not a tight grouping but enough to hit a person (also im a little rusty). It seems that most of the other review say their paint was green. mine was red and yellow. Maybe this is the new model or the 200 round packs. The fill was really oily as mentioned, like a brass eagel fill, but is fill that important? It looks cool though, its like a neon yellow. I was starting to wonder if they glowed in the dark lol. I was thinking these paintballs were decent until i found out a few things. 1, the autococker is a closed bolt marker. If i place a ball on a barrel, it wont go though, and the bolt doesnt go foward slowly to place a ball. If i drop it from like 1 in the ball goes easily though. I put it in though the feed neck and pushed the bolt open and close with some decent speed and shook it a little to simulate running, and when i took the barrel off it was a few inches down the barrel already. This may be ok with guns with the ball detents always in front of the ball, but with an autococker the ball detent is the barrel (besides the acutal ball detent but thats only to prevent double feeding).
I did have a kind of large grouping, but i hit what i was aiming at, not one shot missed. This is what i know so far and maybe i will do some more testing tomorrow. One of the biggest pros is the convience of this paint. You can find them at the big stores like wal-mart, sportmart and big 5. For me, these stores are closer, and they come in packs of 200. This is nice because if you just feel like popping off some rounds or testing a new upgrade or gun, you can just buy 200 instead of 500. As far as the accuracy, i think they are pretty accurate but i couldnt really tell you because im a little rusty, and im used to shooting spyders. I think i would chose these over Zap.

I am in search of the best recball paint and this is not the one. I guess if you have a spyder or rental then this paint is ok. I would compare this paint to standard house paint. My friends' say the PERFECTION paint is good but I'm not going to test Perfection after shooting the low end of WGP paint.
Stay away from this paint if you have a fast marker.

Spyder Imagine 2K4
16" Smart Parts Progressive Barrel
Dytrix Teflon Bolt
20oz CO2 with remote
Ariakon SIM-15 (stock)
small bore barrels
Affordable (got 2000 for $40)
Shell thickness is right
I picked up a fresh case of this paint for only $39.99, and i will buy it again. before i shot i tested the bore size though both barrels and found the paint to fall though fairly easily, so the barrel mach was bad in my med. bore barrels. i tested it first in my SIM-15 and was pleased with the performance. at 30yards the accuracy was impressive, all shots landing within 5" of the center of my target, save a few oddballs. next i tested it in my Spyder which i use for speed ball. accuracy wasn't as good a with my SIM-15, but i was firing much faster (about 10bps vs 6bps) and have no chops or breaks to report in either marker. the fill was a very bright greenish yellow, but was on the thin side, which doesn't matter unless you play with wipers. the shell wasn't to hard to break with your hands or a hard thow, but i haven't played with this paint yet. i will update pending field testing.
Overall, very nice paint. the size of the paint is better suited to small bore barrels, but shoots well without a great mach. I'll hold off on a recommendation for this paint until i test it in play, but i expect it to perform well.
Zap Everything (good for rec ball)
Brass Eagle Everything ( Comparable to firing poo out of a pea shooter)
Draxxus Everything (Awesome! Fits my gun well, haven't had a bad batch)
2004 Spyder Rodeo
14 Inch All American Barrel
Revvy with X-Board
12Oz CO2 with Smart Parts On/Off
Any barrel will work as long as it's the right size. I tried this paint with both my stock Rodeo barrel, and my All American and It worked fine aside from the curving from the dimples on the balls.
The odd ball will actually go where you want it to go
Shells Don't Break
All in all, very displeased with this product. Having friends that work where I buy my test paint (Canadian Tire) I know they do not treat their paint like crap. It's well stocked and everything else. This paint is full of dimples. More Below.
Odd Balls Are Accurate - On occassion you do get a ball that is not dimplized and will actually go where you want it to go. Otherwise, it's mostly curve balls.
Cool Shell Colours - The colours are cool. I got yellow and orange shells with yellow fill.
Dimples - Full of dimples. For balls that weren't packed tight and are not banged around when being stocked, this had tons of dimples. And the crease was very prominent.
Thin Fill - The fill in these balls is very thin. So thin, I could barely see it when I hit my target (A kids plastic bowling pin)
Shells Don't Break - I shot a tree from 10 feet and the ball bounced, I tried 5 more shots and only 2 broke. 10 FEET! If it ain't gonna break when I'm standing on it, whats it's gonna do when I shoot at someone from 50 feet?
Maybe it was a bad batch, maybe it's all bad batches. Either way, for 17 bucks for 200 count bottles (In Canada eh) Not worth it. 3 out of 10

Well I have bought the Walmart but doesn't matter. I bought some from a local paintball store those were decent but broke and went crooked. These are the best balls I have bought by far. I haven't had one break yet and they all go straight to the target. Very nice!
Kingman Spyder Xtra no special attachments
Break well on contact.
Good Color (green/yellow)
Don't break in barrel
A little brittle in cold weather
These balls are very nice and they were fairly cheap. I like them the best because they haven't broken yet. These balls are very nice color because the yellow is very bright and the paint is very thick and doesn't easily come off. They are the correct size for most guns.
I like it. I would recommend anyone to buy them. Next time I get paintballs i'm getting myself some of these.!

Thin brittle shell. Bright color.
Breaks like crazy.
I can't shoot this paint out of my 03 cocker. It will break every 1 or 2 balls. My cocker is low pressure and it shouldn't have any problems with this paint. I used it this weekend in a tournament and got killed because my gun wouldn't shoot because this paint busted in it. Needless to say I am not happy with it.
maybe I got a bad bach or something??? If I find some at another store or something I will try it again just to see but otherwise I won't be shooting this again.

I've used my stock Armotech and a Cutom Products 16". Both work great!
Bright color (green)
Doesn't break in barrell
Good shell strength
Seam is a little large
I've gone through three cases and this paint is all I will buy now. There is no denying at hit on target even if they try to wipe. Fill is thick and not oily like other paint I've used. The balls are very trustworhty and consistent. Buy it buy it buy it!
Worr paint competition- almost as good as domenation
Diablo Dusk- good paint go bad pretty fast

good paint with a thick shell and hard shell
This is some really good paint, I haven't had a curve ball or any break out of my J&J Ceramic barrel which is kinda picky with paint. This paint has a really hard shell so it hurts your opponent LOL. Also the fill is thick so there isn't any way that a person could wipe it off.
This is some really good paint and isnt that expensive.
i have used jt maxims and these worked just as well as them.
spyder TL with a tear drop barrel, 32 degrees expansion chamber, shocktech quick strip bolt, dye sticky grip, VL hopper, and CO2
I have a smart parts tear drop and it works really well
Very accurate and cool colors. I never broke 1 in the barrel!
Big seams but it did not seem to matter.
These balls worked great. I never broke one and they were very accurate. They are deffinatly worth the money. Try the green fill it is very cool looking. They work really well in the smart parts barrel and if you have a smart parts barrel, try them. If you have the opportunity to buy them deffinatly go for them if.
Deffinatly buy them if you can. They work really well and i never broke one. They are great paintballs for the money.
