A dependable paint from DraXxus Paintball that wil not break in any barrel and will break hitting the intended target. A good quaility paint for your marker. Is also a premium choice for gamesfields and pro shops.
The DraXxuS Blaze Paintballs are newer, so they should be commonly available.
Paint in one of the bags. Dimples galore, bigger bore than .690 but inconsistent size. Ended up using a .694 barrel.
Something wrong with size vs. mass relationship making the balls arc more and curve a lot more. Bouncy!
You'd be better off looking somewhere else for paintballs!
When you get a good batch of these, you might be satisfied... But for me they were dimpled (3 boxes bought), inconsistent in size and mass and just too darn big bored.
When shot through a .689-.690 barrel I broke an occasionall ball here and there in the barrel itself. Switching to a .694 made the day, but they still curved and arced a lot.
Fill is weak and runny.
Have since gone through a couple of cases of this stuff... Some good some not entirely good...
I will agree to up my review from a weak 4 to a VERY weak 6. When these work they are OK albeit a big bore which I don't like.
Shooting them through a .691 barrel seems to work most of the time until there comes one of those occasional beach-balls.
I cannot recommend this product. Xball bronze is MUCH better imo.
Given the average rating of paintballs I've ever used should be 5 on the scale, these are not up to the average for me...
A weak 4 rating this time. Sorry, but they don't deserve anything else.
Update... Rating upgraded to a _very weak_ 6. See my body! (or the review body maybe?)

Lasoya pm Blue/black fade stock
DOP bullet drop
egg3 with Zboard
larger/ medium bore
Circular shell, thick fill
Couldnt find any
Ok i was a tourney on saturday and for paint all they had was dxs blaze green/white/white.so we got out paint, got on the field and let it rip. it had relatively good accuracy with my .689 insert. i was puttin paint on people from the back bunker to the back/central area. i liked the fill. it was really bright fill. stood out well. you could easily tell who was hit
all in all, good paint.
A bunch of crappy wal-mart brands that dont even compare remotely.
egrip with W.A.S board
PMI remote hose
Special ops C-series Blackcell barrel 16" with suppressor tip
Any barrel, even the flatline, will accept it.
Bright, thick, non watery fill, easy breaks.
Not sold in Wal mart lol.
Blaze paint is great cause it runs through virtually every marker! I dont get many bounces with this paint, and it is hard to wipe the fill off. Now I know why alot of fields use this paint.
The only downside is that I live in a middle of nowhere town and there is no paintball shop anywhere near us so we cant just go out and buy it sadly.
These paintballs are beast! Great fill and consistently round shell.
kingman fenix ACS with 16" progressive smartparts barrel
kingman Xtra with acs and 16" smartparts linier barrel
Any 16" barrel
Good fill no breaks in gun or barrel
These balls work fairly well. I used an entire case of them and had no breaks. The balls are fairly accurate. MY main problem with them was that they had alot of dimples i would say that 90% of the case was dimpled so accuracy was not as good as it cuold have been. thicker shell so they dont break in gun but still break on target. The darker colered ones are hard to see the hits.
These balls are not bad for the price but the dimples cause problems with shim barrels like the freak. The worked ok for me but not a paint i will buy if pmi preimums are avalable
VS2 w/ blue kit and 14" two piece barrel
Extremerage 48/3000 tank
Any should work.
Very consistant breaks on target.
I only got to use about a hopper full of these, but boy was i impressed. i was playing up in phoenix on an airball field and i was really impressed. it was almost the end of the day and some of the bunkers were half deflated. but guess what happened: this stuff still broke on those bunkers. all i have to say is wow.
They don't cost to much they are accurate as nobodys buisness and have a great fill. Man I love these things. They have like the perfect shell no barrel brakes and no bounces. No one could wipe this fill it sticks on em like glue.This is exactly the xball bronze paint I used I mean I had a hopper with both in it and couldn't tell the difference. It flys straight and delivers.
Blaze shoots straight, breaks on impact, and isn't too expensive
It can hurt if it is cold or if hit on bare skin.
u can't say that much about paint but ill say what i can. Blaze shoots straight and doesn't break in barrels. breaks almost every time on impact, but DO NOT get hit on bare skin if some one is shooting this. i can guarantee it will hurt a lot, especially (not sure if i spelled that right) in the cold.
in my experience the barrel dosnt mater as much as the gun
Good quality at moderate price
First let me say i was forced to use this paint as my home feild is generally feildpaint only the feild paint has since changed due to multiple complaints about the draxus blaze.
The intimidator shreds the paint only two out of ten balls ever leave the barrel ,the nerve broke enough to crud up the barrel so it wouldn't shoot straight , but i had no problems with the paint in my 98 custom or autococker. I have also heard that the paint works well in dye matrix's and protos.
It really depends on what your are shooting if you have a gentle low pressure gun the paint is very consistent

Doesn't matter, the bore size differs from ball to ball and the balls are out-of-round
Inconsistent bore size
Chops even more galore
I was made to buy this paint in order to participate in a scenario and I had to pay $55 for it. When I used it, the paint was flying all over the place, either because of the over 75% dimpling in the case I bought or because I did not match the bore well with my Smart Parts Linear Barrel that I was using at the time. I suffered curves of 6 feet or more and multiple direction ball flights and could not hit anything consistently. The event organizers helped me out by giving me bags of Draxxus Inferno to replace my unused Blazes. This ended up sucking as well, but that is for another review. (See my reviews, forthcoming.) Being that I spent more than an hour and a half cleaning out every part of my gun to compensate for the Draxxus crap-fest I was unwittingly a part of, I had a lot of Blazes left over for when I went to play again (just ordinary rec-ball) less than a month later. My friend also gave me the remainder of his case.
To address the bore size problems I had, I got a barrel kit to match things up. I took five balls to test them and I achieved different results with every ball. Some balls would roll right through a .686, whereas other balls would get stuck completely in the barrel back. Some stuck so thoroughly that I could NOT blow them through the barrel back, even with the greatest of effort; I had to push them though with a screwdriver.
I chose a large barrel size to try and accommodate the different sizes. The Blaze didn't care. Either the balls would veer wildly around the field or they would chop with a disabling frequency. I had at least 20 chops out of 1500 balls and had to clean my barrel from top to bottom inside and out after every game.
Thank you, Draxxus, for the worst day of paintball I have ever had.
I will never buy this paint again and neither should you. If a scenario chooses this paint, I will not do the scenario. I hate this paint that much. Barrel kits can't fix the problem and you spend a lot of time getting to know your gun at a level previously unknown.

back up/ up for sale
16" all american
remote line w/ milling job
4 1 pack
stiffi all american
Breaks on target no barrel resedue doesn't misfeed
None in my opinion
Very good paint. Nothing to complain about. Good results with shots. Good accuracy in the right hands and barrel with good experience an tactics. Over all one of the better low end paints on th market. Over all great paint with almost no weaknesses, wait actually no weaknesses. I enjoyed using this paint but when the fields where I played were bought off the new people changed the paint. :(
I would recomend it since it breaks on target
