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.

Good for rec players
Draxxus Blaze paintballs are good for the rec player, both because of the price and because they are not brittle.
These can take a bit of jostling around in transit, and you do not have to be as careful with these as you do with more expensive, higher-end paintballs.
I did not have problems with dimples with these paintballs. When I ordered, I did have a ball broken in the bag, but I shall assume that this is the fault of UPS. When fresh, this paint shoots well.
As a rec type of paint, the size of these balls is good. Blaze fits most inexpensive aftermarket barrels well, and will only cause barrel breaks if you have a small-bored barrel like a Boomstick.
The fill isn't the greatest, but for rec paint you can't expect much better. You don't really need a super thick, impossible-to-wipe fill unless you play tournaments anyway.
At approximately $45 a case, these are neither cheap nor expensive.
Because of the hard shell, the balls are less likely to break on target. However, it isn't like they never break either.
I recommend Draxxus Blaze paintballs for the average rec player who wants something better than cheap, crappy white box paint. Most any paintballs by Draxxus are decent, and Blaze holds true to this. I have had few barrel breaks with this paint. Though not the cheapest, it is better to spend the extra $5 and shoot paint that is good quality rather than be cheap and frustrated with crappy paint all day.

F4 Illustrator with a few upgrades like new bolt and barrel.
Strong balls, Do good in my gun.
None that ive noticed exept every once in awhile a ball will bust
Good balls, Do what they're supposed to do. I've only used three kinds of balls in my gun and these work the best. Like I said ealier, I have a decked out F4 Illustrator with very high pressure and these balls don't break as easy so I'm happy with them. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
04 vert Autococker --black-- Empire Barrel Kit, 72cu/3000psi pure energy HPA, 12v revy with X board.
Spyder body- Sprint ESP frame, rear cocking, shocktech super fly bolt, new hammer, 32 degreez foregrip, 32 degreez expansion chamber, drop, 12" J&J 2 peice full tilt barrel, 12v Revy with X board, 72cu/3000psi pure energy HPA
I use a .864 in my freak for these..so anything around there. (small to medium bore)
-Breaks on target (not in gun)
My field went from kick'n to these and i was not dissapointed about the switch they made. The shells are bright and easy to see while you are shooting. The fill was bright white so you can easily see when you hit someone. The shells have very good seem and are not warpeed and dimped when i get them. They alwasys break on the target and i rarely break them in my gun. Great product.
Teardrop and progresive by SP, are the ones I have used
Good shell thick paint that's hard to wipe good collers.very consistent sizeing
They can be expensive other then that none
I use these paintballs the most becouse I find them the better quility and seem to shoot the best of any I have tried.
Shell-the shell is soft anough to prevent barrel breacks yet brittle anough to breack on contact
Seem-the seem is allmost invisible so it gives a nice smooth shot
Accuracy-it is some of the most accurate paint you will shoot becouse the sizeing of the paint is very consistent.
Coler's- it comes in many differant coler's my faverite is the pink becouse it is allmost impossible to wipe that is allso do partly to the fact that the paint is nice and thick.
If your looking to buy nice paint for casuel or serious play this is the stuff to get even tho it can be expensive it is worth the buy.
PMI Premium, Zap Sport, JT Maxim, Diablo Dusk, Zap Tork
-20oz/20oz/12oz Pure Energy CO2 tank
-Extreme Rage 200 round hopper
-14 Inch CP 1 Piece
Both Stock and CP 1 Piece Worked good for me
(You really should be buying good paintballs for your barrel, not good barrels for your paintballs)
-Stay intact for a while
I havent found any and I've shot 600 so far.
I've used many paintballs, these were the best fit for me...as they worked excellently with my gun and both barrels. They are reliable and affordable. I never had one break in my barrel as with Premium I had several breaks, Zap I had several Breaks, and Dusk I had 1 break (each brand used in large amounts over 500)
Great paintballs for the price, and not hard to find
I have shot these through my Imagines Teardrop and my Impulses Progressive.
Great shell, great seems, and great fill. They shoot consistently straight.
Nothing much, there is really nothing wrong with this paint.
Draxxus Blaze is some of my favorite paint. I always either use this or PMI Premiums, both are excellent.
~Accuracy~ This paint shoots nice and straight out of my Teardrop and Progressive. The shot groupings are tight and consistent. You a guarenteed this when you buy a box of Blaze.
~Shells~ The paintballs have very nice shells. Hard enough to not break in the gun, and brittle enough to break on target. You get very few bounces with this paint. The seems on this paint are great. Barely noticable and always consistent.
~Fill~ I like the fill in these paintballs. The paint is nice and bright, and the consistency is fairly thick. This stuff is not easy to wipe.
~Quality~ When you buy a box of Blaze you are assured of this, quality. The paint will always be round, no dimpled paint (very few if there are), the seems are always great, and they will always shoot straight.
Bottom line, this is awsome paint. I hardly ever use anything but Blaze or PMI Premiums. Blaze is awsome paint at a fair price. Get some at the field and try it for yourself.

Piranha Evo, Evo II w/z board, 47ci Crossfire, Boss Blade trigger, OTP-style barrel kit
Anything small to semi- small. With my barrel kit I used a .685 and was very accurate with no barrel breaks. My teammates with .689 barrels had success as well.
Breaks on contact, not in the barrel
There are cheaper paintballs
These are about as good of paintballs you are going to get. The only difference between these and $70 balls are the cool looking shells which isn't a big deal. They are consistently round. They break on contact. No barrel breaks the whole day. If you have ever used Polar Ice, these are the same size.
I would highly recommend these balls for tournament use. As a matter of fact, I'll be using them at a tournament in two weeks. The only knocks against it are that there are balls that are cheaper, and they don't have a great looking exterior.
Great paint. I'm giving a 9 only because I've seen balls that are better. 10/10 on performance, but Evil and many RPS balls look better. If you don't want to break the bank, but need performance, these are great paintballs.

Spyder pilot ACS, 32 degrees whisper barrel, evo2 hopper with yboard.
works great on my whisper
These paintballs work great. They're the best i use(and i used A LOT). You can always see the mark made on targets or opponents. The color fill is really bright, and they hardly ever break in my barrel. They run for about $40 for 2000, and are worth it.
I've shot more accurate, but they shoot good for the price
I shot this while playing at an indoor, I shot about 1100 rounds, I had no barrel breaks whatsoever, they were fairly accurate, and have a versatile bore size, they have very tight seams, there were very few dimples so all on all they were good paint, I give them an 8 because they could have had better accuracy and a thicker fill but I could really say that about a lot of paint, their were very few bouncers on the ones that it me(unfortunately). It always broke on target(me), except for one shot which was reasonably caught on some clothing, if you have to pick between anything PMI and this; choose this
Go buy this paint it's good for the price, and accurate for the price
