I've shot two cases of this paint through my Smart Parts Tear Drop barrel. So far, only one or two actual barrel breaks (I did chop some balls but only because I outshot my hopper). The fill is visible, thick, oily and hard to wipe off.
Though some were dimpled, if flies fairly straight. This is an excellent bargain if you're looking for paint to use during Rec play or practice.
A lot of the balls are dimpled or misformed, however, most fly straight out of the barrel. Size is somewhat inconsistent and even if you have a good paint to barrel match, you can still experience a break.
The bags are vaccum sealed, and this could be the reason for dimples and misshaped balls. However, I found no broken balls in the cases I puchased.
I haven't paid more than $45 (including shipping) for this paint. It is very economical and easy to find online. This makes a great budget saving paint for Rec play and practice. However, be warned, it is a low-end paint, the size is inconsistent and some balls are dimpled and misshaped.

This paint has a thin shell which is good cause i am a deadeye sniper and they still break on target when i nail someone from a long way away
The thin shell makes it harder to shoot through brush/marsh without having ball break cuase they break when they hit tall grass and leaves. They break in the barrell a little more than i would have liked.
Buy if u are a sniper if u are a front player get a thicker-shelled paint to avoid chopping balls. I am giving this paint an 8 because of the ball breaks.
Tippmann custom 98 with a 20 ounce co2, Scott Hotshot mask and Quite Riot barrel.
Any 32 degrees barrels should work fine.
They shot straight and the shell is thin but that is good because it broke on every single person I hit. No ball breaks out of 500 and worked great in cold weather. I would rather use these over rps super swirls since these will actually break on the target. On my super swirls I shot my friend 8 times and didn't get a single break but this broke the first ball that hit him.
Nothing really that I saw except break easy in woods ball but sure every ball breaks when it hits a twig.
Buy this paint it's great I got it for 40 and it was well worth it.

- Shot straight and fairly consistant
- Fairly Cheap (bought as field paint at an indoor field for $59 case)
- None broken in bag
- Shell is kind of thin (didn't have any bounces), but see the BAD
- Some are out of shape (I actually broke one in my Freak!)
- Oily (may be good or bad, I don't know)
- Don't smell or taste good (I got shot in the mouth guard while I was yelling positions)
- Shell is kind of thin (you can squeeze the balls a little and give them dimples)
I would say that this is not the best paint I have ever used, but I still shot it all the same. My marker runs between 200 - 300 psi so I don't know if it has problems in higher pressure guns. This paint is better than viewloader/brass eagle, but I like Zap better than this. If money is not a factor and you have the option of RPS/Diablo or this, buy the RPS/Diablo, but if you are playing on a budget, this paint is well worth the cost.
and some others, can't think of it right now...

I haven't had a dented ball yet.
Good bang for your buck.
Shell could be softer.
Your hits on people bounce off once in awhile, probally 1 outta 1000 rds at the most.
In the end, most of the time I see people ragging on this paint is because they have either a cheap gun, cheap barrel, or both. With my Freak Kit, this paint shoots straighter than anything. So I don't know what some of these people are talking about. Great paint for under $40!! I'd recommend it....I've used $60 - $80 paint, and quite honestly I don't see much difference to be spending that much on paint. So go buy yourself a case of this stuff!!
