Didn't seem to break as easily as others in cold weather.
Dimples - TONS of dimples
Somewhat expensive for such low-quality paint
I used these last weekend after having issues with shooting Evil in cold weather.
My friend picked up two cases of these for about $50 each at the local paintball shop. I picked up two bags at the field for about $20.
We figured we'd try a different paint since Evil kept breaking because it was colder out. This paint was definately not as prone to breaking in cold weather but it has a weakness that I don't think is worth the $45 (average) per case.
Firstly, about 70%-85% of the paint from the two cases my friend purchased at the shop (a respectible, single-owner shop, someone who actually cares about their stuff) had dimples on them. They were large enough that I took notice immediately.
The dimples absolutly failed to work in our flatline barrels. A spinning paintball with one flat side is GOING to break (in the barrel).
Firing these paintballs through straight / smoothbore barrels was fine - no breaks.
The two bags I purchased on the field must have been newer since their dimples weren't as large or pronounced. This leads me to believe that the paint in general - is poor quality.
For $45 i'd rather purchase some other decent paint - without dimples.
5 out of 10 since they worked fine in straight barrels and but broke in flatline barrels because of the dimples. Price is a little too high for that kind of quality.

I got these for $40 at my local shop, they had just switched from JT monsoon paint to this so i tried it out.
These paintballs are what you would expect from any rec paint, Good fill, some bounces, and moderately priced. but what was different about these were that they had a great fill and a bright shell.
Decent paint, depending on the batch. Cheap, bright fill, decent shell

Diablo Formula 13 was moderately priced for me ($45). Relatively consistent diameter.
Dents on about 10% of balls with a huge scent of tomatoes.
This is generally a decent product. It is decently prices but you have to deal with the dent and the smell. The dents sometimes cause the balls to fly to the left or right. The postive side of the smell is the satisfaction of making your opponents smell like tomotoes.
Try it out. Might work for you or you might get sick of the smell and the dents.

Shoots straight, great for woodsball; hard shell. Thick fill. Easy Clean-up.
Can dimple, hard shell can be a downfall. Doesn't break.
I've only used these ball in woodsball scenarios. A few of my group members were using them as well and we all said the same thing about this paint. Basically, it shoots straight but doesn't break easily. The fill is thick & bright; it also comes off very easily in the wash. For the price, they're not too bad however, I spent less and bought some PMI premium paintballs and found them to be way better for the buck. Not bad paint, but not great paint. Shot about 1500 of these with no breaks.
Paint isn't terrible however if you can find any type of mid-grade PMI or RPS paint, your same amount of money will be better spent.

I have been using this paint for quite some time and I love it. I get a case for 45 bucks. These paintballs are a higher quality for a reasonable price. I like the pink fill, very bright and difficult to wipe. The shell is also thick enough that it wont break in your gun but also thin enough to break on any part of the player you are shooting at!
I have used DXS, Evil, and empire paintballs mostly. I use all the grades.
I have a DM7. I have a dye tank, and my marker is stock, but teched very well.
I can see them easily
They do not break!!!
I really didn't like using these paintballs!!! I would not tell anyone to buy these paintballs. I made the mistake on getting them because they where the only one that the aintball shop had left. Me and my wife had a horible time using these paintballs. I shot a guy 6 times and nothing broke on him. It became really frustrating when we where getting killed because the guys we thought we had got out came and killed us.
I will never buy them again. I have some extra, does any one want them?
This paint is some of the better quality for lower price paintballs that are starting to come out.
I like this paint beacuse its one of the best paints to use in my barrel (Redz) and will shoot right on top of each other and will never break in your gun. It also has some cool paint concepts (Shell and Fill colors).
Very good paint. If its at your local field, use it.

Breaks on target
Fill could be a bit brighter
overall i like the diablo formula 13 . there great for praticing with ur team Because there cheap but they still break on target and fly straight. so i suggest that you go get some and go paintballing. and so that is my conclusioon on diablo formula 13 paintballs is that it is a great paintball for a great price.

PRICE(1/2 and 1/2, cuz you get better balls for more $$)
I used these balls at a Splatbrothers scenario as Top Grade Paint, for $65. I later saw on the net that they go for $47.99, but nonetheless pretty pricey. I found them to fire straight, didn't have a problem seeing if I got hit, or hit someone else either. Overall I was very impressed with these paintballs, and, when opportunity presents itself, I will buy these again.

i used every barrel i had from the kaner kit and my aci zero gravity kit, nothing worked. i had a .692 insert and these paintballs were still breaking
wgp 2 piece is reccomended
The plastic bags that hold the ball are good for putting garbage in..
Way to brittle, i drop one to the ground from 3 feet and it broke
I bought a case of this from a local shop, was looking for a new paint to try that was bigger then the spectrum ive been shooting. the shop recommended this stuff at 48 bucks a case i gave it a whirl.. now i dont know if i had a bad case or what but 1out of every 3-5 balls i fired broke. i tried every insert i had from .683-.692 and i got break after break. i opened up the second bag of 500 and it got a little better about 1 out of 10 breaking.. still i was in the middle or a scenario game and couldnt be down cleaning my barrel every 5-10 shots. had other players try it and they had the same problems in every type of marker from an old prolite carbine to a vs1 and a couple of tippmanns and an ion it broke on everybody.. at 48 bucks a case i expected better i wont be buying this paint ever again
I dont recommend this paint.. very brittle on 50 degree day... just broke in my gun and was useless
5/11/08 used the 1000 rounds i had left of this stuff just to see what is up...used my old autococker and the last 2 unopened bags shot great... looks like i might have a really bad batch the first time...only time will tell
