As I always say, you get what you pay for. And it really says something when I payed $6.40 for 500 of them. First off, they smell horrible. Also, some come out of the box swollen, deformed, dented, busted, soft, etc. But, they're the best alternative when Walmart is the only place to get paintballs. The thing that really amazed me was, I shot a metal cable box in my backyard, and the thing bounced off! Not once, but seven times! Which is good if you're not on the recieving end of one. The point is that you should get good paint while you still can, and not be forced to stoop down to a n00b's level by buying Zap Vapors. I give it a 2 because they hurt people when they don't break.
If your local paintball shop is not open, head down to Walmart and pick up a case of these.
2 out of 10

Over all I say you are getting what you pay for, this was the cheapest case of paint I have ever bought and it performed as good as a cheap paint does.
The shape of the balls was inconsistent to say the least, I don't think I found 1 round ball in the entire case. They also broke in the barrel allot, I had several beaks in my Phantom and it is a pump gun so that doesn't say to much for the paint. They flew kinda straight but had allot of wild balls in the mix, I would say 2-3 out of every 10 would go where ever it wanted and the rest would go round about where I intended them to go. Another thing I did'nt like was the fact that the fill was rather dark, it was kind of a faded green. Very hard to see a hit with this paint.
If you want a cheap paint to mess around with this is what you want, if you want a good performing paint that flies straight and is round I suggest you spend a little more cash.
-horrible fill (even if i makes it to the target)
I must have broken 50 out of 500 those were the worst paintballs I have ever used! Iím not joking when I say it felt like every other one broke in my barrel or gun, it was the worst paintball experience I have ever had. Do Not Waste Your Money
Don't even try these paintballs it is just a waste of money!
maybe they were old paint from the store but they couldnt have been too old.
Tippmann Pro-Carbine with Bead Blasted Lapco Bigshot 14 in.
Empire Reloader and 12 oz. Co2 with butt plate.
Only tried Lapco bigshot.
Not very round.
I've used these for a few weeks now and I am not impressed. I can buy Zap Spank at 1 or 2 dollars more for 500 and I get round paintballs with a hard shell and thick fill. These paintballs were alright when I first got them, however they softened very quickly and their fills we're hardly visible in comparison to the PMI others were using. They were also a hard color (pale green) to see coming out of the barrel. If you have problems with jamming balls do not get these as you could be unsure of whether you are dry firing.
They are cheap, and good for a quick fix. But you would be better off getting something with a brighter fill.
imagine with nitro-silencer-bi-pod 18 inch ceramic j&j
they was awsome out of the j and j ceramic
shoot straight like an arrow-never broke a single ball even in full auto mode
i have not found a bad thing yet
these are awsome and very nicly priced-they shoot just as good as marbs but alot cheaper-u can not go wrong with these they are a awsome ball-i shoot thenm at 10-20 and 30 yards at 275fps they held a tight pattern of about 7 inch at 30 yards 5 inch at 20 yards and a 3 inch pattern at ten yards--better then the marbs did
I got some of these as a gift and I liked them. They are pretty good balls.Not GREAT but good. They seem to like my armson stealth and seem to last a while. I would get these in times of little money, or when you have a barrel that chops.
Overall I say these are pretty good. I would reccomend them. Howeaver, they do have pretty bad visibility so I give them a 7.5 (7)
Spyder Rodeo/14in. Dye xcel barrel/ ESP 3.0 Trigger Frame/ Bob Long torpedo/ 15* Assault BLock/ Sweet Spot trigger/Empire Reloader
whatever you got
Cheap! very good for the price
These things are dirt cheap i got the mon sale for $8.46 for 500 at sport mart!. These are really good quality. They have a thick shell so they dont break in the barrel but do on people.
The fill is thick and bright. They almost always fly straight and i havnt broke one yet. I reccomend these to woods players.
Weakness: Container smells like a horse sh*t on its self then died and rotted in the rain for a week then slid down the hill and landed in a sewege treatment area
Sunfire, Evil, Pmi Premium, Bigball, Vl (lol), other Zap Paint
who cares MOST stock barrels are fine
Thick Fill, flies straight, cheap, easy 2 find
a sorta big seam
I first bought this paint because this was the only type my friend would use. so i tried it. It was PERFECT. It was exrtremely cheap, and works PERFECTLY. NOT 1 broke in my barrel, and nearly all of them flew straight and constatly hit where i was aiming. NOw i use Zap almost always when i go paintballing, but i've never used it in a tournement but i assume they would work fine there too.
By this preoduct it works PERFECTLY and the price is great!
Spyder Xtra, 12" stock barrel (also used 14" Dye Xcel), 12OZ C02, Bob Long Torpedo Regulator set to 300PSI, venturi mod, macroline, Dead On Dropforward, 32* Magnaport valve and pin
Well, I can say that the 14" Dye Xcel doesn't work very well with them. I'm still looking for a good match for the Xcel, but this paint works great with my stock barrel.
Price, Consistency in paintballs, thick fill, durable container
Well....the smell, field I go to doesn't allow ZAP paintballs
I bought these paintballs for practice in my backyard, and they were dirt cheap: 500 paintballs for $12! Anyways, I didn't expect to get wonderful results from such a cheap set of paintballs. Oh, and I recommend that you DO NOT pour these things into your hopper when indoors without proper breathing apparatus: these paintballs STINK! They smell like pond scum....yuck. Pouring them into my hopper was easy, since the 500 pack came in a plastic jug container that makes pouring them out a breeze, with no spill unless you put them in too fast. They're pretty consistent in shape, and the shells are strong enough so that they won't break in the barrel, but weak enough to break on target. I shoot at a wood block covered with a towel in my backyard for target practice (as well as tangelos from our little tree...don't tell!). Even with the towel on, they still broke every time, except for one. The fills are white, so they look like bird crap, but they're thick and difficult to wipe off. I should mention that the fills are also why the field I go to doesn't allow ZAP paintballs: the fill tends to stain clothing really badly, making it difficult to wash out. It's almost a match in heaven with my stock barrel, these paintballs have a perfect fit, and shoot pretty far. I can't guarantee how far they can go, since I shoot about 40-50 feet from my target, but they fly in a pedictable arc, and don't spin in different directions.
Aside from the rancid smell and that my field doesn't allow them, these are remarkably good paintballs for the price. I'll use these from now on as practice paint. Taking into consideration the smell and the fill thickness, I'll give these a 9/10. Maybe Candadian-made paintballs aren't so bad after all =P
a 9 oz tank, pmi original black hopper, and the barrel gun came with
doesnt really matter
durable, dont break in barrel easily
sometimes bounce... but not a lot
i bought zap vaopr paintballs and they seemed to work fine for me.
the balls have a hard shell and are very durable. the price is pretty good for them two.. i had just bought 1000 of them for 25$.
the paint really seems to go straight and never really curved
the accuracy of them is just about perfect
i would recommend these paintballs for target shooting or wood ball
