Lots of dimples
Was vvery disappointed in this paint. I found lots of dimples in it which was disappointing especially since it was field paint at $90 a case. Couldn't find a box without any. I will sayt this, I takes paintball to a whole new level because this paint you can do bank shots. Instead moving to find an angle just bounce it off the wall and hit your opponent. You could not get a ball to break with this paint. I was literally bouncing m off the floor and wall. Thy were like reballs. At least I didn't have to squeegee the barrel. Maytbe its better in the woods at a higher fps.
Its cheaper to go to a reball center than play with this paint.
To be fair rec balls should be compared to rec balls and not tournament balls. I would not recommend Nightmare for tournament use. The ones I received had some dimples. Also some seemed "out of round". I have had just about all the rec balls above bounce off of an opponent. This happend more with Nightmare. I took the advice of one of the reviews and allowed some of the paintballs to dry over night. This seemed to help some. I bought Heat for ~$39, I bought Whack for $35. However, I bought Nightmare at ~$20 in a bulk purchase. For the price difference I can stand a few dimples, and a few bounces. Especially since this is just for practice and rec. I probably liked Whack better, and if I could buy Whack in a bulk purchase for $20 a case I would, but.....Nightmare was a good value for the buck.
We used two cases while playing indoor speedball the other day. Only chopped one ball. One ball may have broke in the barrel. They were used in many different markers and no one had any real problem.
Buy Mightmare if you can get a good deal. It is fine for practice and just having fun.
Spyder pilot Acs..
Viewloader evolution 2
everything else is stock...for now
Very rarely breaks in your gun or barrel.
Dosen't always break when it hits your opponent.
it is a good paintball for a good price. I use it at the field i play at which is full throttle in florida and i love the paint it works great to me. So i recomend it to anyone beginer or pro. I cant think of anything else to say so...
I have gotten these paintballs 3 times each was a little diffrent. The first time I used it was at Matts Outback and it was okay execpt it bounced alot of people. At the end of the game a couple people would come up to me saying you bounced me alot. The secound time I used these they were not as bouncy but they chopped 3-6 diffrent balls and it was horrible becuase I didn't know why! There was no dimples and the weather was perfect but anyway, The third time I used them was much better then my secound time even though I was discouraged to get them again. No chops all day to my suprise but yet again bounces through out the day.
I most likley will not be getting these paintballs anytime soon

These balls may be ok for playing around, I would not recommend for a Flatline barrell,
when they called them Nightmare, they where right! I also seen these balls breaking in custom 98's with stock barrells,If you can afford other balls, BUY them!
Playing with 24 players I seen these balls break in everyones marker, was not a happy day!
I do not a all recommend these balls, unless you enjoy cleaning your barrell alot
I was playing paintball one weekend and could not get my regular paint so i bought this stuff. It was ok when i was test firing it. It went pretty straight and i didn't chop any. When we started playing i noticed that i was hitting people but getting very few of them out. Me and my friend were using them and this guy slid into a bunker and we each shot him five times, and none of then broke. My friend got hit in the head three times and they didn't break. Overall this is terrible paint that will not bust unless u hit them in the mask.
Do not buy this paint. You can buy scorch paint at wal-mart(now called visable impact) for the same price and it is much better. Or buy Diablo heat which is also better at same price.
I give it a two only because it wont chop.
I've shot everything from malmart paint to all-stars
The one I will mention is Midnight. Excellent paint for the price.

I only shot it with the D2's stock assassin barrel, but anything .689 should work fine.
No shape oddities
Way to many breaks
Our team got a bunch of this paint for our practice, straight from nationals. This paint was nothing but trouble all practice. It was chopping in the Shockers, the Ego, the Freestyle, the Ion, my D2, the Eggy, the Reloaders, and the Halos. And if it made it past our bolts, most of the time it would chop in the barrel.
Bad batch? With as many cases as we got.... that's hard to believe.
I've shot walmart paint better than this stuff. I would rather have it not break on target than break in my hopper, my gun, or my barrel.
I'll give it a 3, because it had a good fill and there we no deformed balls but otherwise it sucked.

Lasted 3 months, shot straight, love blue, cheap
Couldnt find any
I've been using them for 3 or 4 months now. Havnt had any problems at all. Its cheap great and my fav color. Othewise I couldnt see any thing wrong with them. Heck, I had a box for 3 months and they were still good. I would recommend it for 16-17 year olds who have to spend cash on tonz of other things and need good cheap paint.
I recomend em'. Havnt had any problems, cheap, and last a good while.
gator-balls (4 or 5 years old and still better)

Always leave the end of the barrel (broken or not)
Break in barrel
Role out of barrel (like xballs)
Unaccurate (unlike xballs)
i brought my very accurate phantom to a scenario game on Friday, but we had to use the field's paint, which was nightmare. since the phantoms barrel in large bore, it is understandable that it roles out the end, but this is defiantly the first paint i've ever had break in the barrel. i dropped an xball of my kitchen table and it broke, but they NEVER break in the barrel. but with this garbage, out of 25 or 30 shots, i had about 5 breaks. that just sucks. finally to accuracy. i didn't hit a single person that whole day. at 1 point i shot at a space between 2 trees about 15 feet away and hit a a different tree, about 2 feet from where i was aiming.
Just as there name implies, these are a nightmare to shoot. I give them a 2 for always leaving the barrel in 1 form or another, or weather i pulled the trigger or not.

DraXxus Blaze - a pretty good field paint, breaks pretty much every time.
Work with pretty much anything.
We use this paint as our new field paint at the field where I ref sometimes. We used to have Blaze selling for $70 a case, now we sell the Nightmare for $55 a case. Blaze is a much softer paint than Nightmare. Shooting Nightmare paint is almost like shooting rocks, it breaks about 50% of the time it hits, I took one shot to the upper chest today, right in the hard boney part, and it didn't break. It was a pretty nice day out, about 60-70 degrees, not too humid, and our paint is stored in an air-conditioned room.
They are fairly accurate, and usually come nice and round in the bags. Diablo has a nice no-frills approach, so they come in clear plastic bags. Saves money I guess. The fill is pretty thick, so it helps keep cheaters at bay.
Really just way too hard.
