Fill and shell thickness
Looks worse than it really is
Fill, if broken in gun
I get Zap Spank for $25 a case of 2000! For that price this paint is nearly impossible to beat and I find myself always going back to it. The fill nearly incapacitates the target in its extremely visable thick white goo!(I shoot the purple w/white fill). Very difficult for the Target to see the purple balls coming at them as well. The spank is a tad on the bigger side, works well with my .691 dye stainless, no balls rolling out the barrel. This paint however is far from round, a tad egg shaped but surprisingly performance does not seem to suffer so much. Its still not the straightest shooting paint but again at this price point the performance is beyond acceptable and is really not that bad.
The only negatives I can say about this paint is its not all that pretty to the eye, first impression is that it will not shoot well, the super thick fill if you get a break in your gun can shut things down. If you get a break in the feed you will not feed another ball. However the only times I've had breakage issue's with the multiple cases of spank i've shot have been when the temps are below 45 degs. Also I have no clue what they put in this paint but the smell of the fill is horrible, just don't shoot yourself.
If your looking for a good rec. paint/woodsball paint look no further especially if your a little tight on funds. My Spider and tippman friends perfer the spank over the more expensive Zap Cryptic as well(i however would shoot the cryptic if it didn't roll out my barrel). If this paint was $45 a case it would get a 5, simply just for the out of roundness, If it were $35 i'd give it a 7.5, but in the $25-$30 range its without a doubt a strong 9,5 for value/performance. I don't think there is a paint at this price point that comes close, heck there are many paints in $10-15 higher price point that fall short of the Spank.
I bought this paint. I used it. It's seriously the best paint for the money.Used it in my pm5 and didnt have to use my squeegee once. Awesome paint for the price. I bought a case of 2000 for $27. Really cheap. I think this is my new fav. paint.

The odd ball is a different colour if thats a weakness...
When i ordered these paintballs from badlands i got the on sale for 35$. These paintballs are awasome and last for a while to. They are mostly all round and come with a good shell and thick fill so those cheaters can't wipe. These balls are dark also so it's harder for your oponent to see them coming. Some people have a problem with zap paint for some reason but i have no reason to hate it because it has performed amazingly for me every time.
These are a great buy for the rec ballers and also for practices. I am tempted to take them to a tourney with me because they have never let me down:)
Stock 98 Custom barrel
Any premium, larger bore barrel will work well
Not as accurate as they could be
I bought this paint for practice, only on the merit that it was the cheapest they had at the shop at the time. I though I'd chop a number in the first hopper-full. Nope. I went through 2000 without a single break in the barrel. pretty amazing. Then I bought another box and put my stock barrel back on to see if it would make a difference. None. No breaks.
The fill is thick and gooey. Great for games. I've used an old football as a target and it's hard to get the paint off that, so imagine getting it off your clothes cleanly! The shape is very consitent, no odd shaped balls like most cheap balls and seconds.
They also maintain their shape well. I had a friend who doesn't paintball often come and shoot a few rounds. and once we ran out of air, he joked and said we should just throw the whole bag (about 200 balls) at the target instead. I didn't think he would do it, but he did, and broke a couple balls. I took the paint and cleaned it off really good, took out all of the broken ones, and put it back in a bag. A couple days later I tried the thrown paint, and only broke one ball in the chamber! Try and ask that of any premium ball!!
Although the seams on these balls are quite pronounced and visable, they don't seem to affect the accuracy much. I can shoot them with suprising tight pattern on a target 50yrds away.
They also seem to break nearly every time. I'll never buy another cheap paint, I've found the best. If you aren't rich, but you want good quality practice paint, these are for you! Simply put they are the best balls in the price range, and out perform many balls substantially more expensive. although they are not as accurate as they could be, and occationally they don't break, there is nothing to complain about. Fix those two problems you have a near perfect paintball in my opinion. I don't care about color or any other aesthetic issue as some of the others, so that's not a problem for me.
Good balls, at a great price. You cannot get a better ball for the price anywhere. If you don't want to break the bank, but get a good quality ball that will do what it's supposed to, this is the best. Not the most accurate and every so often doesn't break this is a fantastic product. Great work ZAP! I'll give it an 8 because it's not perfect, but no ball is!

I personally think that balls of paint should cost a lot less then they should. Thats just my opinion. Anyway, since I am always on the look out for cheaper priced balls I eventually ran into this brand. Even to this day, I feel that they are well worth the price ( x<$35)
When you are just looking to have some fun with your buddies and do not have a fat wallet (not too many do), this product is the way to go. Yes, I am sure that not all of these balls break, and the pink fill may be the only choice you got but you are getting a decent value for you money.
For those of you who have no problem laying down/ securing the funds to obtain a case of balls for $50 or more then god bless, but for budgeted players you should give this product a go.
Good deal in my opinion (value) for the money that you spend. Try them out.

wgp dominator - better
monster balls - not as good
zap rec series - a lot worse
autococker trilogy sport (my first gun)
cp one piece classic barrel
*superfly bolt coming soon
one that matches the bore
Dark shell - cant trace
Balls sweat a little
Dimples/shape - accuracy not affected
this is the cheapest paint at the local paintball shop a box for $30 so i thought id give it a try. After opening the box i wasn't impressed because of the ugly purple/maroon shell color and a few of the balls weren't perfectly round but after a few games with these balls i discovered that they were pretty accurate. These balls are hard to trace which can be a good or bad thing. Your opponents cant see where the balls are coming from but its also hard to see where they're going.
Most of time breaks on target
Well i been using this for soooo long lol u get what you pay for this is fairly cheap and it is pretty accurate. these paint dont usually break in your barrel well i dont think i had 1 break in my barrel b4. At my local field they always have these as ther field paint and the only complaint i got for this is it smells horible.
Zap Sport- great for spyders but a little innacurate
Brass Eagle Monster balls- do not buy them
GameFace Scorch-good rec paint but Spanks are better

Breaks every time
i used 2000 of these in my tippmann. WOW this is the best paint i have ever used, extremly visible from far away, breaks every time, all the time. perfect match for Tippmann Werks barrel. i would highly recomend these over any wallmart paint. paint is .689 caliber, so fits most barrels like a charm. i was hitting targets at 100ft plus, and ball were breaking easily.
if on a budget, buy this paint, Zap Spanks simpls SPANK any other China-Mart paint and pretty much every other paintballs out there

Wut ever u have will work fine
didnt chop when ripping
Outer shell is purple(not dark purple)...some ppl might not like it
My gun does about 14 balls per second and these did not chop. The fill is like really bright purple and pretty much white. They have a good durable shell but aren't likley to bounce off of the target. There a good value as well. There modo is like "all the proformance with out the hype" and it is completly true. I had never heard of them but when i used them i was very impressed with the quality.
If your looking for some great paintballs and you dont want to spend 80 bucks a case.....BUY THESE

Thick fill but its all right
i used this paint back in october for a local tourny here in good ol' Gallup NM. When i bought my case i found that there were a few broken balls. no biggy just have to blame the shipping company. got a new bag and they were fine. got them in my gun seemed like the shot good at the start none were deformed. that night when i got home i found out that the fill was very thick.(So im thinking to myself thats good atleast no one can wipe this stuff). Go to help out the field owner clean the bunkers a few week s after this when he said that today he used the last of it. we get out on the field to clean and this stuff is a pain to clean even when it was just shot 20 minutes ago. the fill when dried becomes a chalk like material.
This paint is really good. The only down fall is when it dries or if you have to clean it up.
