New Formula, New Fill, New Shell, New manufacturer, and now a new way to match your paintballs to your barrel. The Ballgauge, a quik and easy way to find out the diameter of a paintball. Now available in select cases of ProBall free of charge.
The Archon Paintball Proball Paintballs are newer, so they should be commonly available.
I want to say up front that Proball is easily the best paint that I've ever used. First impressions were great considering that it came in a shipment with two cases of other brands of paint, and they both had breaks in them. The Proball paint was perfectly round and clean.
I used the paint through several games over about three months and they stayed fresh for the whole duration. The paint shot well every time and never broke in my gun. I did have a few bouncers though, but most of those were in poor weather. Other than that my only complaint is that the mark from them is fairly small, but luckily it isn't so bad that it's hard to tell if it broke or not.
Proball is some of the best paint I have ever used and I will undoubtedly continue to use it in the future.
xball gold(yes little better)
hemmorage(good field paint)
Pm7 with blue magna and a crossfire 68/4500 lp tank
They break on contact and not in your breech or hopper
I bought four cases of proball from Actionvillage.com and these paintballs are awesome. I have not had one bounce in my three weeks so far playing with them. They are straight as crap too. I deff recommend these. I love these becasue they shoot as straight as some xball silver i shot once and they had no dents. The only thing i wish they had better was the fill. but it is still really bright.
I would have everyone get these from field paint to tourney paint becasue it was only $45 a case.
Pretty much anything else you can imagine really.

Accurate and good breaking
Good breaking but not great
I have seen that there are not any recent reviews on this paint and that is a shame. I have used this paint for a full year as my Team tourney paint. It comes in numerous colors and even scents. Strawberry being my favorite really.
The paint was not always the best choice but over the last couple years it has taken the place of some of the makers other mid range paint. It is made with an extremely round shell, with a minimal amount of seam present. In the hundreds of paint cases that we used this year we didn't have a batch that we couldn't use to shoot others easily. There were some bounces that were on occasion but that can be said with just about all paint.
This was not a sponsorship that made us use this paint but we did get an excellent price and we may us it again this year.
1. Round Shell
2. Good quality control
3. The fill is excellent and marks very well. Sticky enough to help stop some of those wipers out there( you know who you are).
4. Prices is affordable even at full price.
5. on par with other makers more expensive paint.
6. The shell makes it good for Woods and Speed ball.
7. Wow how many different colors do they make??
1. Not a breakable as some other high end paint.
2. Could be a little less at full retail. ( what paint can't be?)
3. Has a bad rap that makes it hard to find in some places.
4. Retailers that have it in store (wally world) may have the oldest product that man has ever known. This makes any paint worthless.
I would buy this paint for lower to mid level tourneys. Anything above that and you will need something that breaks a little easier.
So Woodsball it would work great also, Speedball Everything up to National tourneys and the Rec baller can't get better paint. Get the Scents they are fun and people know when you have hit them.
I rate it a 8.5 but i will round up to a 9 as they don't have a median mark.
j&j 14 inch ceramic
Flew straight within an inch everytime,chopless,thickfill,perfect shell
Umm... i cant think of any.
these paintballs were sweet!! i never chopped one. they all flew straight. they all splat. and they sting like a Beoch!!!!overall shot nicely in my vs2. definately will buy again. everyone in my group used these and loved them. worked very nice in my friends freak barrel. these were my fields premium paint so i thought i would give them a shot
I struggled and struggled finding paint that would work with my Tippmann markers. Tons of barrel breaks just left me frustrated as I am just wasting money when that happens. Quite a few months ago I tried Proball and I have been using it ever since.
I NEVER break balls in my barrel, They break on target all the time.
Yesterday I was in an event that was field paint only. We had to use Chronic. Man barrel break after barrel break. I was so pissed. Halfway through the day the event organizer ran out of paint so they had to go to their store and get more. They brought up a trailer full of Proball. I quickly bought a case of it and I was back in business! No more barrel breaks just good paintball fun with no worries about breaks and having to clean my barrel every 5 minutes.
Proball has been VERY good to me this 2007 season. If I can help it (Field Paint Only Restrictions), I will never use anything but Proball. These balls mark well, and have a nice thick fill for no wiping purposes. If you are looking for a good brand of paintball for you, I would surely check out Proball and see if it works well for your marker.
- Thick shell so it doesn't break in your barrel
- Very goopy, bright fill fill
- Theres an occasional bounce once in a while
I've used many different paintballs in my time playing this sport. My favorate has been empire ramp and proball. Proball for the last year has beenpretty much the only paint iv'e played with and throughout the whole year i haven't chopped a single one. My favorate thing about them is how thick and prominant the fill is. It might not be the biggest splat but for the price, its better than most paintballs out there.
For only about $40 for the sented version and 35$ for the uncented, there the best paintballs you can get in the price range ( IGNORE ALL THE OTHER REVIEWS THAT TRY TO SAY HOW HORRIBLE THEY ARE, try them out for yourself cause you won't be dissapointed)
The guy at this field reccomended it to me because it was 30 degrees outside. I decided to get it even though marbs were 5 dollars more. I buy this paint and get outside and start playing the accuracy was pretty good. The shell broke on contact almost every time and the fill was a light blue fill that was very nice. Then it got up to 50 degrees and the paint startred to loose its performance. It never broke in the barrel which was nice but it wouldn't always break on contact when it got warmer. The price was way too high for this quality paint but it was pretty good.
Good paint if you can get it at a field for 50 and below. Pretty good accuracy but the shell was a little to hard.

Buy a barrel kit
There arent any
Ok I bought this paint and then read some good and bad reviews about it, so I did some tests. First I did a bounce or drop test by slowly dropping this paint from various different heights until it broke, this paint broke from approximately 6 feet straight drop, pretty good I was impressed. The following day I went to my local field and played until my case of paint was gone, during the different games I did NOT break a single ball in my marker, the nice hard shell was definitley part of the reson for this, I didnt even need my squeegee all day :). Also the paint broke very well on my opponents and had a very thick fill, once againg the fill is very nice not as thick as chronic but thick enough to the point it cant be wiped and can be easily seen on your opponent. Out of the case of 2000 paintballs that I bought there were no breaks in the bags and also the paint was nice and round. I have read alot of the bad reviews about this paint and my advice to you is to buy your paint at a shop that will let you inspect the paint before you buy it, this will prevent you from getting paint that is full of dimples, flat spots, or just plain broke ball. The only reason I'm giving it a 9 is because there is probably something better out there somewhere i just have'nt found it yet.
UPDATE: I tried out the clear shell red fill version and found it to break even better on target and shoot more accurately than the pink/blue shell with the pink fill. either way both verions are an outstanding paint and i highly reccomend them.
This paint impressed the heck out of me, highly reccomend buying this paint. I also reccomend that you ensure the paint that you buy is a good match to your barrel otherwise you will think the best paint in the world is no good
9 out of 10
