32* Team Colors - Can't even compare, 32* sucks
Midnights - Great paint, almost similar to the rec-sport
Spyder E99 Avant with an EGG
SP Teardrop/AA. They fit a progressive not as good but still okay.
Breaks > Bounces
Can't get them to chop, even at 850psi!
Sometimes one bag has a different bore size than the others.
When I first got back into paintballing about 10 months ago, I bought a case of 32* team colors, and thought they were good. I decided to fork out another $20 and get a case of midnights, and found the 32* paint sucked. I saw some rec-sport about 7 months ago and decided to give them a try. They're almost identical to the midnights, but come at a more budget aimed price.
I first tested about a hopper full of this paint in my backyard. My EGG didn't have any batterys (and we all know that with no batterys it's worse than a gravity feed) but I still did not chop. Sometimes the bolt would catch on the ball, at 850psi (stock spyder), but it would only pinch the ball. None of it's internal juices every went in the marker. I did experience a barrel break (stock kingman barrels suck) so I went and bought a squeegee. I have not used it since I bought my SP progressive barrel.
At the field I was constantly getting about 1 bounce to every 1500 shots or so. That's pretty good, since I light people up and bonus ball, so if one bounces it won't bother me.
I haven't really found anything bad with this paint, it's actually pretty good, and only $35 a case. That's extremely cheap. I will continue to use these balls, even in a tournament.
This paint is the best quality-to-price ratio out there. It's a great ball for even the experienced player. It's easy on the budget, too.
9/10, because of the different bore sizes (usually within .002, and these are medium balls, so usually .687 or .685). It's not much, but it still counts. Everything else about these balls is golden!

Hmmm, I haven't tried every barrel ever made so I don't know.
Most everything I've tried works
Bad if you play in windy areas
I can get a case of these babies for only $40 bucks at my local store. The midnights they sell there are $55 a case. These are much like the midnights except they have a different shell. The normal shell is more a rubber than the plastic used in the rec-sport. The plastic is still biodegradable anyway. Since the ball is lighter, it can't acheive quite as much momentum so it doesn't go as far. It is still a very accurate ball for the price. One nice thing about the shell is that it almost always breaks do to the crispness of the shell. I have had some serious ball curving when there is a stong breeze, but that happens with most balls. Also the paint washes off preatty easily, so my friend's clothes don't get stained. :-)
I would say to use as instructed. (Rec-Sport means recreational use) duh! Anway these are nice balls for the nice price. In comparison to a regular ball it would be a 9. In comparison to other non-top-level balls it is 10. I have to go with the normal ball comparison and give it a 9.
They paintballs are rather irregular in size, so I'd just recommend the standard .689 and go from there. They shot fin in my friend's Boomstick, though I don't know what bore back he has.
Quality in general compared to other, pricier brands...
Something you have to keep in mind is that when you're buying paint for $33 a case, it's not going to be the greatest in the world. A friend of mine bought a case of this for his first time paintballing, and I mooched a few pods' worth off of him during games.
The seams are certainly there; the paintball appears inside out compared to higher quality paint.
Out of maybe 300 I shot, I had about 3 chops and no barrel breaks ( using nitro, in about 50 degree weather, averaging 10 bps with bursts up to 13.) I have a feeling that the chops were only because my hopper couldn't keep up.
The one thing that stands out most...the color. These are brown with orange fill. Now I'm not the most image-conscious guy when it comes to paintballing, but i at least try to retain some dignity...these things are fugly.
Considering thay're about half the price of most other paint and their performance isn't all that bad (especially in the cold) this is definitely great rec paint (as is implied by the name.)
