Worked well after years of storage
Fill is a bit light
I bought a case of these in 2007 and never ended up using them until 2010. I thought for sure they'd be junk after sitting around so long. They had dimples and some moisture, but performed surprisingly well given the situation.
They are a little small, so you may have to match them to a smaller bore barrel. And the fill is light but difficult to wash off.
I consider these to be an affordable type of paint that provides average to above average performance.
-Availability (for me, at least)
-Hard to wipe
-Doesn't always break on target, but no paint is perfect
Well, when I picked up my first paintball gun (98c pro, ACT), I thought I'd better grab some paint. Since I was just beginning and on a budget, I just picked up some cheap paint for testing/getting a feel for the gun. I expected this paint to be of mediocre quality, however I was pleasantly surprised. This paint is accurate, inexpensive, and the fill is hard to wipe off, and I have shot about 800 rounds so far, and have had no barrel breaks, no chopping or bag breaks. However, this paint has not always broken on target for me, and if it really matters, the white fill looks like, and is about the consistency of fresh bird crap. I highly recommend this paint , as it is inexpensive and of high quality.
This is great paint, because while inexpensive enough for target practice and the likes, is very accurate and outperforms paint in it's price range.

The balls break. They have a nice fill and they hurt.
Few bounces but all balls do
The balls are AMAZING!!! They are really nice. For on there really hard and break when u get it. They break on anything. when people get hit with a long ball they dont expect for it to beak but it does. This produc it ideal for playes that play speedball and woodsball!
Everyone should get this because there so nice they like stay on closthes

-Never breaks in barrel
-Too many bounces
-Shell is way too hard
When I first started shooting these I thought they were great. They never broke in my barrel and flew straight. However these past weekends I've been shooting them I've shot certain people about three times from mid-range distance and they all bounced. I could'nt believe it, that's when I realized the shell was way too hard. As a matter of fact when I did the drop test on them I threw them down lightly first and of coursed they bounced. Then I threw them down with about half my throwing force and it freaking bounced off the floor and hit my basement ceiling. That's when I knew I needed a new paint.
If you're looking for a paint that is accurate and never breaks in your barrel this is the paint for you. However if you're looking for a paint that has a little more reliable target breaking as well I'd go with something like Empire Ramp, DXS Triumph, Xball Podium, Xball bronze, or Xball Silver. I give this paint a 6, it's not that it's bad but I just wish it would break on targets easier, it recently caused me a bad day of practice because I was hitting a lot of my opponents but the balls weren't splattering.

Spyder VS1-J&J 14" Barrel-Empire Sound activated loader. Bob Long Defiant with gravity feeder.
I used my Defiant with stock barrel
The paint is thick.
Chopping. it is not the gun either
I would not waste my time using these balls. My friends and I went to a paintball field that used these balls and we had a miserable time. We ended up sneaking in some draxxus rec sports and we finally started shooting paintballs out of our guns instead of paint and paintball pieces. The only good thing was the thick fill does stay on someone if you ever get a paintball to leave your barrel. I have a bob long defiant and turned my psi down to 250 and my speed was around 230fps and still was chopping real bad and I have never experienced that with any other paintball, even the monster balls at wal mart are better than these.
By something else, balls are very unreliable when the time counts.
DXS Rec Sport - Better than Spank, but now much more expensive
Visible Impact - Better than Spank, slightly more expensive... a best buy for rec ball
06 Etek + Freak Kit
Any barrel w/ adjustable bore size (freak, sly.. etc)
Breaks on Impact
Excessive protrusion of the seams
This stuff is cheap and the shell breaks just fine, even in the Houston heat and humidity. The fill is thick and hard for cheaters to wipe.
The seam of this paint protrudes excessively. I've used more than one case of this stuff and it curves a fair amount, making pop-shooting useless. At a distance of 50 ft, the shot grouping had the radius of a beach ball even though it was perfectly sized to my barrel.
This is one of the few budget paints still out there, but if you can get some fresh Visible Impact from Wal-Mart (made by Pro Caps), you'll get more for your money.
Decent quality paint, breaks ok, good bright, thick fill
Mine were not very consistant in size
So I got 8 boxes of this stuff when buying bulk paint for my team. It came in a nice box, and a nice bag too.
So I get my freak out and see what bores it fit. A majority fit the .689 bore, but thats the problem... A few are too small and fall right through, and a few are too large, and barely fit.
While playing, when I was shooting towards the back of the field, the shell wouldn't break. I was dissapointed... The IMPACT I shot would break, and had a shell that was more brittle than this stuff. Besides that, while shooting people that were closer, it broke nicely and this paint has a great fill for the price. Nice and thick, and bright too.
So the only thing I can really say about this paint is that the shell is a bit too thick (but I gues that equates to better all weather paint), and the slight inconsistancy in the size. The shell isn't that bad, ands I can deal with that, but the inconsistancy was astounding. It wasn't slightly off, it has some paint what was a whole bore off, and that by itself droped the rating down from an 8 to a 6.
Don't get me wrong though, this is decent quality paint, but just know that there is paint that is way better than this stuff.
Never chopped (twice see review)
Multi colored casing
Expensive field paint
There is only one problem with this paint and that is that this paint is sold at the local fields around here, so if you have to buy paint, this is overpriced. I have to admit this paint is above middle grade paint its definetly not low grade. The only reason i chopped paint was because it was very cold outside and we were playing in the snow.
Great paint OK price Highly recommended to someone who doesnt want to chop and wants to save SOME money.
Freak - 689-691
any good after market barrel will be jus good
Inconsistant ball size
fill color variaty
I got this paint cause i was short on money but for $30 it was great! i did not see almost any ball with dimples which is kind of wierd for cheap paint. The fills was a little little bit chalky but not like other paint. It sucks because I could only get this paint in white. It was also very noticable The thing that i did not like of the paint was that the seems had some extra shell stuck to it but did not affect preformance. Another turn off was some balls were way smaller than the rest. I had some balls that need a 0.682 or smaller when 99% of the case need 0.691 or 0.689. There will be some bounces but for the price thats what you can expect.
Get this paint if u need some good accurate practice paint or if your are jus a weekend rec ball worrior
