There at Wal Mart. I'll take them anyday over 32 Degrees competition paintballs! I have never had many ball breaks with them either.I have tested them on a BE Blade(out of 200 balls only 14 broke), BE Stingray(out of 300 balls only 5 broke), PMI Piranah(out of 100 balls there wasnt any breaks). All were tested on original stock barrels.
They curve sometimes and have ok accuracy when they go straight.
Considering that you can buy them locally, there good in case a match comes up and you need paint quickly.
The reason so many people hate it is because they are shooting paint they got from K-mart and Wal-Mart, which are usually not stored right and are not fresh. Often their paint is over 6 months ol,d after which paint starts to get soft and "ovalize." If you order it online, it is easily equivalent to other paints like PMI and RPS.
These work well in larger bore barrels like most stock barrels and it is definetly worth the cost.
Alot! i was suprise how well this paint worked. I never broke a ball and it shoot straight as anyother paint ive shot.
nothing really it has about everything you could want it a paint.
this was a really good paint. and remember this is coming from someone who bags on bass eagle like there is no tommorow. i have used much worse (Tournament)paint then this. Surprisingly it shot like a dream. if you need paint fast, you can get this at wal mart. what more do you need
Ok i agree with PaintBall Monkey. I bought some of these up at Dicks Sporting Goods and took them home to use them in my Tippmann model 98. Given they do smell pretty bad i used about a hundred of the brass eagles in my gun and a hundred of some 32 degrees. I had one break out of my 32 degrees and none when i used the brass eagle paint. So i believe these just get a bad rap because most all of the other brass eagle products suck. One other good thing about them is that they are pretty cheap.
What is bad is that they smell awful other than that i really didn't much to complain about.
This paint worked pretty well with my 98's stock barrel (even though the stock barrel sounds like a cannon). I really didn't look at the shape but it couldn't have been too bad. With some of the reviews i see i a still hesitant about buying these paintballs because i just don't have money to waste when i buy paint for my gun. But if you have never used the stuff get like a pack of 200 and just try it out to see how it works and don't just expect that it is gonna suck.
I'd say most everyone has played with Brass Eagle paint. Its moderately cheap and easy to get at like Wal Mart. Its alright for backyard with friends type play. If it matches your barrel (pretty rare) it works pretty good. Ok I'm not going to sit here and brag on Brass Eagle.
The paint is extremelty inconsistent. Its like easter eggs (sometimes). They break easily, but most of all the shapes are all messed up.
The Wal Mart in my town sells sheridan for like the same price as Brass Eagle, so I just but that, and ViewLoader. Its all good, but Brass Eagle isnt anything to praise. I give it a 5.
OK, I am going out on a limb by saying this, but here it goes anyway. Brass Eagle Paintballs aren't really that bad. I picked up a 200 count plastic carton of them at Wal*Mart just for the hell of it. I was surprised to find the paint to be round, firm, and consistent. I shot 200 rounds of it out of my Defiant as fast as I could and did not have one break in the barrel or breech, only on the target. They even flew straight.
They do have the Brass Eagle name on 'em. There was also a decent amount of oil on the balls, but it didn't seem to do anything other than make my hands greasy.(that really does sound sick on the second reading)
I always here about how Brass Eagle paint sucks and even found myself saying it until I realized that I actually never used the stuff. My experience with the stuff was basically what I saw at Wal*Mart. After rooting through the containers with broken paint (probably from ignorant customers dropping and shaking them) I found a carton with no breaks. To my dismay the BE paint I "tested" was no different than some of the other quality stuff I've used in the past. I think this paint gets a bad rap because of the name (kinda deserves that) but also the fact that people that buy the stuff don't "inspect" the paint before they purchase it. Just as you would inspect a case of paint for breaks at your local field before buying, you should do the same for the stuff at Wal*Mart. Maybe I got a fresh carton, but it did have a lot of dust on it, like it had been on display for a while.
It is actually good paintballs to get just not at walmart. They are for large bore barrels. They are just good.
Don't get them from walmart or kmart just get them from your local paintball store. The reason why they don't work with most guns is because they either have been sitting in walmart for a long time or you are using a medium or small bore barrel. They are for large bore barrels
Get brass eagle paintballs at a local paintball store and not from walmart or kmart. They are large bore barrels which are perfect for Custom Products .693 barrels!
Shoots about as good as blaze, IF IT IS FRESH!!!!! the
cr*ap you buy at kmart has been shipped from a warehouse of
brass eagles, then sat in a kmart warehouse, then shipped
to a store, then sat in their storeroom, and then finally
put on the shelf, and by the time you get it, it is
practically 6 months old, no wonder it shoots like crap.
My local field recently ran a tournament sponsored by brass
eagle called the Road to Aruba, and everyone was required
to use brass eagle, and everyoe complained, until they shot
their first shots at the chrony, and they shot pretty good,
because the paint came straight from brass eagle, and then
we used it, it shot about the same as blaze. Of course,
all the stuff kmart has is bad, never buy it, you cant even
shoot it, but if your local store has some fresh, dont
hesitate to buy it, because it is fairly inexpensive, and
good enough to use rec balling.
if it comes from kmart, everything, otherwise, nothing you
cant expect from paintballs.
dont buy it from kmart, or walmart, or wherever in those
stupid little jars, if it is in your local paintball shop,
and in a box, and the owner says it is pretty new, buy some
and try it out and be amazed, so the kmart stuff gets a
score of 0, otherwise, i rate it a 7.
