Flight behavior, break on contact, super fill, air-tight bag delivery.
I've actually been using this paint for a year now. To my point of view it's the best paint available. The flight behavior is super, it's fill is very thick and vivid and I can't remember having a ball break in my gun ever. However, they will break on the opponent. The last advantage they have is that they come in plastic air-tight bags and not closed up by rapping some metal thingy around the top.
The only disadvantage they have is that they're really expensive. In europe their price varies from 65 to 70 euros which is around 90 USD.
Baze, Midnight, Recsport, Rainbow, some Diablo, several field paints.
VSC Phantom with detend rings.
A5 with Nightstick
CCI standard barrel
Probably lots more, but these are the ones I tested them on.
Very thick fill.
Good bright colour.
No bumps/dents in shell.
Not perfectly round. (Than again, no paint is...)
Ok, so first I did a shell test. I dropped them on a folded towel to simulate human flesh and clothing. The broke from about 1,5 meters. This should mean they wont bounce at all under normal conditions.
After I ahd a broken one on the towel, I did a fill test by trying to wipe it. The first thing I noticed is that the fill is very thick. It has about the thickness of ketchup. Ketchup isn't wiped out off cothing very easy (Unfortunatly). Neither is this paint! The stain is still visible after some wiping, and unless you apply lots of water, it won't go away!
I did some further inspecting of the shells. They are not perfectly round, though it's not visible with the naked eye. I only saw it when I put them in my barrels, and even then it was hardly visible.
Unlike some others, this paint did not have any visible dents or bumps in the shell that often tend to occur when they come out of the box.
Ofcource I also did a shooting test. It's dead on with my Phantom. It also had great performances in my A5. Though not as acurate, I blame inconsintancy of the gun for that.
I've used this in a couple of games and it's proved itself every time.
All in all this is very good paint for a reasonable price (€40 per box which is considered cheap here.)

Accurate, thick fill, glitter for wipers
These are fairly good balls. They fly straight, have thick fill, and the fill contains glitter for those wipers out there. That having been said, I would buy these balls for $60 US. They are not that much better than other paint that I would suggest paying more for them. I would suggest getting PMI premium, GAP, or Draxxus X-ball (bronze, silver or gold) before getting these.
Not bad, pretty good performance, but the performance you get is not worth the cost you pay. 8/10 due to price/performance issue.

Glittery fill (for those wipers)
I love this paint. It shoots really nice through my Autococker. I really like the thick glittery fill because then it is really hard to wipe. You can also see the paint really easily when it hits an opponent (even on camo). Overall this is an excellent paint and is worth a try.
If you can find it, stock up on it, because it is worth it.
I shoot a pipe kit, worked fine for me.
Lots of colours
"Pink does more than you think!"
A tiny bit bouncy
I used this at my first tournament and they shot great. They were the higher end paint (compared to Severe Hurricane) of the two and I thought they were good. They were $100 Cdn. per case, which is cheap around here for quality paint. I had no breaks in my Autococker, but my friend broke about 3 in his Impulse just because he accidentally shot with his barrel condom on, duh. I would use this paint again, no doubt.
The only problem for me was that they have a really small bore, i have a pipe kit and even the smallest bore (.683) didn't fit it perfectly.
Great paint! 9 because of bounces.
9 out of 10

Accurate, good fill, pretty colors :D
Kinda spendy, dont do too well with low end guns
This is the kind of paint that is used at the field i go to. They sell it by the bag, 20 bucks for 500!!! Im sure its just because its field paint, and it is usually very spendy, but anyways. I used it in my piranha, and it did well, there were a few times that the balls broke in the gun, but no big deal. Very good accuracy, good fill, nice shells.
Dense, thick fill
Price...$63 a case here
This is severe's top of the line tournament grade paint, and is one of the best paints i've tried in any price range.
Great breakage..the shell is a little more brittle than other types of paint, but with a low-pressure marker this isn't a problem. The more brittle shell encourages breaks that you might not have gotten with a different paint.
The fill is impossible to wipe. And the paintballs are some of the very few that do actually seem to function as a solid when they are flying through the air.
On an interesting note, these seem to function very well with the Tippman Flatline barrel. They seem to do away with the upward curving float that you have a tendency to get and rather just provide a nice flat trajectory.
I introduced one flatline user to these balls and he hasn't used a different kind since.
anything that fits. My friends ultralite .689 works perfectly.
Cheap, nice quality.
Can be the price depending where you buy, can get a bad batch.
It is good paint for any serious PB player. I use it in my autococker, and soon my GZ when it comes. It is inexpensive, I believe you can get it around 50$ online, and 60-100$ a case at fields. I have had a few bad bags, and some occasional breaks. I have broken very few so I highly reccomend this paint.
my whole team uses it for practice and scrimmages and it is horrible and good at the same time for a weird reason everybody hates it but for me shoots fine while im not in a game. during a game it flys all over the place i get clear shots and cant get them.
still i get it for 25 dollors a case.
if u can get it as cheap as i can do it it will eventually go on target !
