The 2002 line of Brass Eagle Paintballs has been greatly improved for the new millenium. Major technology and quality enhancements have delivered a new era in paintballs marketed under the Brass Eagle trademark.
The Brass Eagle Afterburner Paintballs are older, so they are not commonly available anymore.
PMI Big Ball
tippmann custom 98
Cheap (I got them Half Price At Target)
It gets old quickly
I didn't have it break But I believe it could.
Well I was in target and they had 500rd boxes of this for 7.50 and I'm a cheapskate so I bought 2 of the 4 cases. I didn't have problems with it, But I can believe others have. Becasue this stuff is B.E. you probably are going to find it in a superstore, which means its most likely not fresh. When its not old (like 3 weeks after you buy it ) it becomes extremely brittle. I shot this stuff one weekend for 3 games or so and had no problems. It does stain wood thats not coated and The fills not very bright. I would only recommend it if you can get a deal on it.
I think Unless you find it super cheap you should go for other walmart brands made by draxxus and PMi like Big Ball and Scorch.
Rebel Deluxe with a 200rd gravity feed hopper and 12in barrel
Didn't break in barrel
Did not break on players
I was satisfied with the fill's colors but not it's thickness. The paintballs flew straight and were not dimpled. The shell was a little to strong so they did not break on the players but they did break when they hit harder objects (ex. trees or hoppers). Only one of the shots broke (1/500) on a player otherwise they all bounced.
--Edit--I wrote wiped easy as a strenght.
Overall i was satisfied with this product. I am only downgrading them because they didn't break well.
8 out of 10

i have not have any other paintballs that have been similar
victor stock, co2, gravity hopper.
anything is good. they worked well with my 9 1/2in barrel.
Break when they hit target. Cheap.
Not very accurate curve off sometimes.
I just went to the field today and i used about 2200 they were very good. I choped about 2 out of 2200. They work very well with a victor. If you have little money and wont fairly good paint this is the paint for you.
PMi Premiums, RPS Big Ball - both better
Proto Darts - Incredibly better
J&J Ceramic 14"
BT Tippmann Double Trigger
*Soon to Come* - Viewloader eVLution II and Response Trigger
I used a J&J 14 inch and it still sucked
Made by brass eagle, oily, too brittle, didnt shoot straight
Okay i bought 200 of these for 7.99 just to try out. When i got home and filled up my hopper, one of the balls fell out and broke right there. Some "mysteriously" broke in the container it came in without the container even dropping, making all the other balls really oily and grimey. When i began to shoot, the first 2 or so came out pretty straight, but after that, they were curving enough to make a MLB pitcher jealous.
I dont reccomend using this paint unless you just want to show off how fast your gun can shoot paint because thats all its good for. It was a waste of 8 bucks and I will never buy this again.
I recently bought an equalizer board for my gun and anyone knows that means that it is impossible to break paint. Afterburner does the favor for you because every time me or anyone I know buys this crap, opens the box to discover many paintballs already broken with the oil n' crap all over the unbroken paint.
I am a serious paintball player and I donnot reccomend this product. If you want to win a game just don't buy afterburner its as simple as that. I'll give it a 4 because it's cheap and I you can use it just to shoot around.
14" 32 degrees nyte stik barrel
16 oz CO2 tank
i used my nyte stik barrel
Look like paintballs
So hard it doesn't break
Bounces almost all the time
I was using Big ball at my friends house and i ran out of paint in the battle. I forgot my pods so my friends brother gave me a pod of this brass eagle afterburners. They looked OK by the looks. Man, i was wrong it may have been my barrel but these things we flying everywhere doing swirls and completly missing the target. My friend has a Spyder Extra and they seemed OK shooting out of his gun. He finnally hit me and it bounced off but it hurt worse than any other paint. I've been playing paintball for sometime now and those things hurt more than any other paint i've been hit with.
Do yourself a favor and stay away form these.
If you got a Spyder or you just like to lose then get these. But if you like to have a chance at winning buy better paint like Dusk or Scorch. Scorch is the same price and are 10 times better. Dusk is just as good and at dunhams it's only $9 for 500 and $17 for a 1000. I'll give it a 2 because it shoots out the barrel at least.

Draxxus-Of course, better(price=flame in pocket)
some other kind of paint(blue filled and blue shells)-not good
i doubt you even care
any reg barrel. i use JJ ceramic. these paintballs are medium sized bore so they work with pretty much any barrel
condition when you buy them
Brass Eagle made them...
Alrighty then. I just got these 2 weeks ago and have been playing around with them in rec games alone. if i went into tourneys with these id be shot before the game even started. and not with a paintball gun.
Strengths- The color was definitely a strength. they were yellow and they were kindof hard to wipe off, so i cant complain there. Just dont buy the orange ones, they wipe easy.
These were fairly accurate for the price that i paid for them. i got a case of 500 for 11.50. they were packaged pretty well and didnt have any abnormalities in the case. no dimples and the like.
the hard shells broke neither in the barrel nor on the target. yay and nay. its ok for what you pay, but about 10/50 didnt break on target contact, which kinda sucks.
Weaknesses-If you dont watch what you do with these puppies, they will dimple. you gotta store em good and all, and you cant drop them or anything. they are like apples that way. do anything forceful to them and they bruise. big time.
like i said above, these are kinda accurate. they miss some they hit some. but hey, for the price who can complain?
ive bought about 4 500 cases of Afterburners and i can tell you, if you get a bad batch, you have a BAD batch. out of the 4 i bought, 2 cases were pretty wierd. not bad, wierd. they were dimpled in one case, not too bad, maybe 25 of the 500. but in the second case it was gruesome. id say about 200 of the 500 were royally flattened because of the way Wal-Mart stocks these things. Wal-Mart blows.
Them being made by Brass Eagle is a weakness. these are most definately the best paintballs Brass Eagle makes, but they could be improved upon. not without upping the price, mind you.
I would probaably recommend these paintballs to anyone on a budget or with friends that just wanna screw around. they work well for the price, but if you are a true competitor, you need to fork over more cash. thats not MY style.
8.5 from me. rounds to a 9, just to be fair. (trying to even out all those really bad reviews from diehard "i hate brass eagle" kids.)
These paintballs were actually my friends that he was selling to me for cheap because i was low. I now know why he wanted to sell these to me.
- when my friends brother went out and bought these they were ok....didnt chop to many
- nice fill for a brass eagle paintball
- the box that my friend had who sold them to me contained 500 dented balls. Every single ball was dented. I would get about 6 feet of accuacy before it nose dived or did some kind of barry zito curve ball.
i gave these balls a 7 because i am giving them the benefit of the doubt that my friend just got a bad box. That is the only experience that i have had so i am not going to buy them again.
4500psi 45cu central flag n2 system
halo b/w rip drive
Break easily on target not in gun
Cheap at local store at $5
Sometimes a few break in box
These paintballs are good for the price and i dont see why everyone thinks there so bad. They dont bounce off stuff so th/re like tourney grade. Well if even if you dont agree with this the ones i bought had great performace and were cheap. You should buy these if ur on a budget and need some good paintballs.
