I do not recommend these paintablls unless you are on a budget. I always have breaks with this paint. I will chop balls every 12 or so shots. I recommend only using these with pump guns only. The fill as with most paint is o.k., comparable to those in house paint. Do not use this paint in your high-priced guns as it may do more harm tham good. 'Nuff said.
This product is definately better than house paint. And I would use these instead of house paint any day. But there is definately better paint out there if you can afford to buy it. For a couple of more bucks you can upgrade to Diable Blaze. But if money is your x-factor, these will be o.k. to use.

Im not sure. These paintballs may be smaller than the norm, which is why i may have had some breakages.
they were a load better than brass eagle, winchester, zap, ect.
they were a load worse than marballizer, all star, ect.
It may have been my barrel, but i RARELY have had balls break in my barrel, and i had about 4 break out of 500. (compared to maybe one old crusty marballizer out of over 2500 paintballs) they were deffinatly better than brass eagle et al, but there is better paint out there.
if you want cheepish paint for field ball or you know what size the paint and barrel on your gun are and you can compatibalize them, they are ok. I'll give it a 4, because they arent terrible, but i would deffinatly recommend marballizer.

I don't know...
They're okay for close range....
BUT THAT'S IT!
Swerve off in all directions
Don't brake on contact
Lots of breakage in barrel
These paintballs are horrible. I bought a case, and they were terrible! They would curve off in all directions if I shot more then 1 every 3 or 4 seconds. If you shoot very slowly, they'll barely pass for OK, but if you intend of acutally trying to HIT somebody, I would definately not buy these. They were pretty expensive too. I paid more for them than my friends did for Team Colors, and the Colors were much much better! Get Marballizers! Much better!
Don't buy them. They are really bad, and inacurate! Don't buy them. They're not even cheap! I'm giving them a 2 becuase every one in a while, I'll get a nice, accurate shot!

-Breaks on Impact ( 3 out of 500 broke)

-My full review......hmmmmm... i aint gonna lie to whoever is reading this... these ball performed better than i expected .. i have some pictures that i took on how accurate these balls are if you guys are interested just PM (private message) me your email add.
and i'll send the pics (it is compared with: evil, i-ballz, pmi premium, and java balls)
i had a clamp on my marker so it wouldnt move and i loaded it 1 by 1 into the powerfeed (shot it from 35ft away).i used 3 balls for each brand and the nightmares came in 3 place.
1st: evil,2nd premiums, 4th i-balls(yes a miracle).... kingman java.....so sad...tisk tisk .

-Spyder Compact Deluxe Java Edition
-16" Spyder 3-piece Spyder Sniper Barrel
-ADCO Hot Shot Red Dot Sight
-two 12oz. CO2 tanks
-shatters on impact instead of bouncing or splitting
- good in cold weather
They worked pretty good with my gun; so far so good
I bought a case of 2000 of these Diablos and so far I've used around 800-850. Out of that number, so far only around 5 or less have been chopped in the chamber. With my bad luck though, the majority of the ones that did breack, did so at the worst possible time because one time my friend (who had a Tippman 98 with a Flatline and expansion chamber) and I went up against a Brass Eagle Marauder, a 98 Custom, and two Syder Imagines. My friend got out by an Imagine on full-auto and I took out the 98 Custom (with one shot). Outnumbered, I retreated far back into the swamp and found a depression in the ground where the roots of an old tree had been standing. That was where I hid for about 10-15 minutes until the same guy with the Imagine came back looking for me. (The rest of his team were a bunch of panzies and stayed together farther back). When he got close enough I opened fire on him and barely missed him. My barrel got clogged up and he put it on full-auto again and scored about three shots in the head. If those balls didn't break, then my accuracy would've gotten him out a long time ago.
Overall, it's pretty good and even though it's not totally the paintballs fault, I'm giving it a nine because it screwed up at just the wrong time

-These balls are good for the price. They perform like the Midnight. Of course, like in all other balls, one will eventually break...but that is not a problem. Two balls broke in 2000 rounds.
WGP E-Ranger w/Spyder barrel adapter (No upgrades available at this time besides a barrel).
Spyder TL Plus w/Drop forward & Off/On Adapter
68ci 3000psi Crossfire tank
14" Custom Products Barrel (Used for both markers)
Good paint for the price ($40.00)
Diablo = Good Quality
You could pay about $5.00 more for the Blaze...Don't be cheap!
Overall, this paint is good. It occasionally breaks, but that is expected. It is very good for the price, and you know you are getting a quality product from Diablo. I would recommend these balls if you don't have enough for the Blaze or Inferno.

One you don't like very much.
Got a deal on it.
The deal was for three cases.
I ruined three squegees and a day of paintball trying to shoot this poo. My marker NEVER breaks paint (low pressure, vision eye, freak barrel), but this stuff acted like it was its job to break in my gun. The ones (maybe it was the one, not too many anyway) that came out of the gun had the accuracy of a thrown paper plate. Came close to shooting myself when the balls did a 360. This was the saddest paint I have ever had the bad luck to use. I hope that it was due to being old or improper storage, but I'll never know unless someone else has some, because I'll never buy this paint again. I gave away the other two cases tio my kids and now their mad at me cause they could not make it work in a angel or hopped up spyder either. I'll give it a two to be nice.
Piranha Pro TS G3 with 16" all american barrel and 12v viewloader, and Armotech Zeus
I found no redeeming qauilties with these paintballs other than they had fairly consistent shape, and very few dimples.
I have broken only 4 balls in my Pro TS in the year that I have been using it. But these balls were breaking, getting chopped, etc 6 out of 10 times that I pulled the trigger. After a few games I was so fed up with them, I was only using my Armotech Zeus with the few marbilizers that I had left (not a single break, even though they were months old). I missed out on many, many kills due to this paint breaking, and I have a lot of cleaning to do since they were breaking in the barrel, gun, and hopper.
I usually use paintballs from walmart (yes, i am cheap), used these balls one time, picked them up at a paintball shop
There were several of us using these balls; markers were tippmann c98s, spyder 2000, be stingrays, trracer, tippmann sl68, and a piranha pro.
We were using stock barrels, j&j ceramic, thunder pigs, and a barrel I have no idea the brand.
-black with purple/blue fill was cool
-no dimples or breaks in case, shape and size were very consistent
-way too many chops/breaks in all the barrels/guns
-lots of wingers, looked like me playing golf
-lots of breaks in hoppers, 3 out of 8 of us using these balls had to switch hoppers
I was really disappointed in these balls. I would not recommend their use. We had problems with chops in every marker with every barrel. They seemed to perform best with the tippmanns (98 & sl68) with their stock barrels. I wont buy them again, spent way too much time cleaning barrels and hoppers.
