No paint I have used has been this crappy, maybe blue streak.
Barrel in excess of .699
Nothing but see review.
I have yet to find one barrel that can fit my Diablo Heat...
Here is a test I did:
How many Diablo Heat paintballs can fit though my stock ego solo barrel (.693)
100 Diablo Heat paintballs were placed at the inside of my barrel. Then I would blow a sharp blast of air (from my mouth) into the barrel and count how many paintballs made it through.
7 out of 100 paintballs made it down the barrel.
On my .689 CP barrel shot with air out of my 05 speed I got 10 paintballs completly down the barrel but not at a high enough velocity to break on a tree ~20ft away, after the first 10 paintballs the rest jammed in the barrel causing a mess of paint and me having to clean my gun.
On my .690 Hammer Head barrel, shooting with air out of my e2 mini orracle I got 25/140 paintballs out. The others resulted in barrel breaks and a guns and halo filled with broken paint.
Zap Cryptic Paintballs, 100/100 paintballs made it down the eclipse solo barrel (.693)
Diablo Heat is in fact the WORST paint you can buy. At a price for $49 a case you would expect better. Now on the other hand, at the same price you can pick up a case of: Blaze, Cryptic, Xball Gold, and Evil Ultra.
PMI Premium, Diablo Blaze, Kick'n Premium, Draxxus Inferno, etc.
2k5 A Bomb Intimidator, Empire Barrel Kit, CP Reg
GOTTA HAVE A BARREL KIT FOR THIS PAINT...not that it would help much!
I have shot this paint on 2 seperate occations and it was the worst paint ever! First of all, the ball size is tiny...rolled through my .681 Empire Barrel. Also, the balls roll past the detents...too small! Second is the number of barrel breaks. I spent all of my time cleaning my barrel and missed several games because of this garbage!
Stay away form this paint...If somebody gives you a case...give it back! This paint is garbage!!
1 out of 10

Blue SP ion PE 45/45 Core 3piece, HaloB w/ rip and vic board Check it sure fit neck. QEV. Maxflo reg
Core 4 piece kit. dye ultralight
Cheap, Round, Thick enough fill
A dimple here and there. a few odd balls
This is the cheapest paint at my local field and i have been useing it for a few months now. its not bad. shoots straight, breaks on the target, nothing to really brag about. its deacent paint that shoots good and is affordable. thats about it. it works. i just use my 692 barrel and nothing breaks in the barrel. its usually a 689 but some of them are bigger.
No other diablo brand but I have used Marbalizer and Polar Ice
Piranah E-force Evo
Halo B Hopper x2
Any except flatline.
CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP
No BERREL Brakes
If you leave them out they get dimpled.
I think these diablo heat paintballs are good for rec players and practice. They are affordable and they wont brake in your berrel. I have never had a brake but only in a flatline Barrel they leave residue,,, not paint though. They are good if u dont want to spend $80 dollars for a case of 2000. With the heat paintballs you only have to pay just over $30. These paintballs are good all around. Dont let them sit too long or else they will get dimpled.
This product is good for everybody. Ceap reliable and they dont curve much. Only about half and inch with a flatline barrel. So use any barrel but that and i give the paintballs 5 out of 5 stars.
Custom made Impulse and a new 05 Ego
the IMP: all nds internals, brand new wires, was board, custom made strange body, check it feedneck, cp drop, cp long reg, cp barrel kit, voodoo bolt.
EGO: a black and red ego, with the new tadao board in it.
anything with the right boarsize.
It'scheap paint, breaks on target, not in barrel
The paint is bad in cold weather.
Diablo heat paintballs are great paintballs. The color is ok. The shell is nice. Only problem is that sometimes gets dimples in it that cause it to curve once in a while. However this happens to all paint after it gets old. So remember always buy fresh paint. The fresher it is the less breaks u will have. Like i said i shot 4,000 round at a team practice and i only had 1 barrel break all day. About dimples i had dimples in some of the paint and i still didn't have it curve. Have a good barrel and it wont matter.
I say buy it, it's good paint for the price. It dosent break in chop often. Out of 4,000 round I had 1 barrel break. Overall don't listen to anybody it's good paint.
......................................... liek everything
right now a spyder xtra 20 oz vl eletronic hopper 14 inch barrell drop forawrd
None so far.
well this paint is evry good. I bought a case at t he local pb store. I hadnt usd this before and i wanted to test it. I opened the box and no balls were broken from shipping or anything liek that. There also wasnt any dimples or anything on them. So i loaded them into my hopper and the fill was great.It was a thick orange color and very thick filled. I even shot the ground and it still broke and didnt bounc e which is a good thing. I really recomend these paintballs .
Overall for 38 bucks for a case there pretty good and i would bu y them. There good quailty paint.

Curves (a lot)
This paint is inexpensive, and cheap, as in "cheap" i mean their is much better stuff out there. I strongly reccomend spending 10 dollars more and getting good paint, instead of using this. This paint curves more then you can imagine, and it can get annoying! I was very dissapointed with the look of the paint (not like it really matters) but, its a greenish brown color with puke orange paint. I would strongly urg you to go with the high quality paint. Also, more expensive balls will help prevent balls breaking inside your gun, but will not completely eliminate the problem.
Varying bore sizes (see below), Some balls curve a bit
I noticed that some of my balls curved when shooting longer distances, I had no breaks in my gun and they seemed to break on contact fairly well. The paint is kind of hard to see (I had dark shell/pink fill) and can be wiped off easily
As far as the bore size.....one case that I had was smaller than .687 (it fell straight through the .687 insert) and then another case I had was exactly .687. I'm not exactly sure why there was so much variance.
Overall, I'd say that it is good Rec paint, but I wouldn't use it for Tourney play.
Zaps eXtreme Sport - horrible
PMI Super Swirl - Good
GameFace Scorch -OK
Tippmann Model 98 w/ drop forward and 14" Werks barrel
Small Bore - smaller barrel bores
Cheap and accurate
These were my paintball of choice for about 4 months. My friends all used them and we thought the chops were just normal. The were accurate and broke on target. The only problem was the chopping. Others have apparently had good luck with these but my friends haven't. One of the reasons may be our triigger-happiness, but they shouldnt chop each time I bunker-rip ( a term among my friends for shooting at bunkers with an insane ROF) None of us use guns made for high ROF but I have used cheaper paint that didn't chop at these hight rate of fire. I was bunker-ripping with with $32 ZAP 2000 count buckets without any chopping and my ball of choice, the Super Swirl, Is cheaper, more accurate, and hasn't chopped yet.
if possible, go with super swirl
4 points for accuracy, 4 for breaking on every guy I shot, 2 for price, 3 off for chopping
blaze, hellfire, charge, some others that i cant think of the name.
Red to black fade
68 ci nitro
14" j&j ceramic barrel
VL revvy with xboard
i use a j&j ceramic barrel and it works great.
It is an affordable paintball, it isn't the best for tourney's.
It doesn't have the thinnest shell out there.
I play at Stonemak, and when i go there i usually use the blaze, but once in a while i'll use heat, i dont notice much of a difference. It does curve a little bit more. I use heat when i go play in the woods, i go through a lot more paint when i play in the woods ( i get a little trigger happy), so it is cheaper so i can buy more.
