Viewloader® introduces a new line of metallic colors and fills in the all new Heavy Metal™ brand of VL Paint for 2004. Heavy Metal™ paint is packaged in five convenient quantities to satisfy every need: a 100 count speed tube in a shelf merchandiser with 6 reusable tube loaders, a 200 count clear bottle in a shelf merchandiser with 6 resealable bottles, a 500 count box, 900 count reusable bucket and, for the tournament player, a 2,000 count box.
The Viewloader Heavy Metal Paintballs are older, so they are not commonly available anymore.

Extreme rage 200 shot hopper

Only tryed the excellerator
Always break on target
Come with a pod
Chop too much
This paint is all rite. They are a bit too inacurate and they chop a lot. But they always break. Me and my friends were scrambling for paint because we were about to go on a very low key paintball trip out to this place. We were just looking for simple paint and we come across some of these in a Dicks Sporting Goods. So we give em shot. They were alright for the rec ball we were doing but they were a pain because they chopped so much and we were getting pretty sick of squeegeeing our guns.
other low end paint - some of the low end paint is actually much better then this for accuracy and size beleive it or not
-68 ci 4500 psi crossfire n2 tank
-titanium dye boomstick
-jt Nvader goggles
a barrel kit seeing how the bore is all different sizes.
-Alright marking but it could be brighter and not clear
- All different sizes(bores).
- Clogs up your gun good
- off shape where 2 halves join
I would definately not buy this paint again. It is all different sizes (bores) and does not shoot well. Accuracy is pretty good if you actually get a ball that is your barrel bore which would probably be about 2 in every 10-15 balls which isnt good. I have actually had cheaper paint that works alot better due to it being the correct size and it did not have an off shape where the 2 halfs were joined together. The one key strength of this paint is the hard shell so it doesnt break in the barrel as often as some of the softer paint. i would not reccommend buying this paint again as i have had better paint for alot less of price. Go for zaps even some of those cases are better then these if you get an alright case.
~ If you were playing a tournament i would definately hope the opposing team/teams would use this paint or paint of this quality.
Don't buy these go for something more expensive and alot better quality such as draxxus paint.
PMI Big balls, PMI superswirl, WGP domination, WGP Perfection, blue streak, Dusk, hellfire, draxxus white box, wrek balls, rampage, Nelson.
Any barrel with a .689 bore or a little bigger.
Doesnt break in your gun, breaks on target. Cheap, lol small things come with pod.
Dark fill, hard to see on black.
Ok , well i got some of these balls to fool around with (I use WGP paint now) and it turned out really nice. Its not so solid that if you drop it it will break but if you throw it, it breaks nicely. I can break these easily using a slingshot. The paints got decent shape and seems like a good recball paint. I reccomend this to anyone who's gun has eyes ( I saw about 30 reviews from nubs with tippmans/spyders who had vl 200's and complaining of chopping :rollseyes: ) or anyone with a decent hopper speed to marker match. Your hopper should always be feeding two bps faster than your gun is capped at if you dont have eyes.
Great paint, i reccomend to anyone who wants it but itll work best with a proper setup, just like any paint.
ummm, does garbage cans fit into the category of barrels?
if your a comedian take these. You'll get alot of laughs.
Break, break, break
I went to Fleet Farm and am looking for cheap paintballs. I found some Heavy Metal. I go to shoot them at the range. Break every 5 balls until the paint is glooping out my barrel. I unscrew my barrel to find 5 balls stuck in there, and half a gallon of paint. I figure, well I have these now so I might as well use them up. I go to the game. Inbetween every round, I end up having to clean my gun out completly. It just wasnt fun for me anymore so I went home. I would reccomend this paint to anyone that wants to get rid of their gun really really really really really fast. I had to pray to the paintball gods for putting my gun through such a trial.
Wait, I'm not sure if these are even considered paintballs, I think that theyre little water baloons.
Viewloader hopper 200
Smart parts 14" barrel
Pure energy co2 tank
Anything 12" or up
None at all...There is nothing!!!
Unaccurate, Pop in my barrel extremely easily.
Very unaccurate, Pop in the gun/barrel extremely easily. Made of a hard plastic that ive never seen. The plastic is really annoying when it gets stuck in the barrel. Also the freaking things went all over the place when i shot at my target... My other paintballs i have used are way better! Such as Scorch, Blue streak, Orange streak is alright....
TERRIBLE!!!!! The worst ive ever used! Dont buy them ever!!!!!
Anti -Chop bolt
J&J Ceramic 14"
Smart Parts Ion
47/3000 steel tank
Empire Reloader ll.
I just use my J&J or my stock barrel with these , I have'nt tested other barrels for these
My mom bought me these for Christmas. I went out to my dads house and gave them a try. I put about 120 in my hopper and shot about thirty really fast , no breaks. I don't see why people are always bashing this product. I shot the rest fairly fast too , still no breaks. The accuracy was on target , Nice pink fill inside of it , the shell looks nice too. These balls are really cheap. I recommend this product too anyone that has a low budget and wants some rec play with there friends.
*EDIT* I just bought 500 more and the sucked! No shots were accurate , out of 500 about 50 broke. There were breaks in the package. They SUCK!
Buy this balls for rec play or woodsball. These do not make good toury balls. Great Price , pick them up at Walmart or Candian tire.

Brass Eagle - Monster Ball and Wild Streak - Both horrible
No other paint that is this bad...
Pure Energy 47/3000
Freestyle Stock - perfect match
Thick Purple Fill
Easy to follow
Plenty of Barrel Breaks
All have dimples and are oval
Bad seams, brittle shell
I was at Wal-Mart one day, and saw a shelf of these paintballs and Wild Streak. I bought about 10 pods of 100 rounds (for 50 cents each). They looked nice enough, with a cool looking shell and a plastic pod too. I soon found out that you get what you pay for, especially with paint.
While shooting my first pod, I had about some massive problems. When one ball broke in the barrel, all of them either broke, or couldn't travel more than 20 feet. I constantly found myself shooting guck and shells out of the gun, with an occasional few balls getting through. I would then, have to clean out my gun and repeat the process. When I didn't have the breakage problem, the balls were ok at best. They had poor accuracy, with the worst taking full 90 degree turns at about 20ft out.
This paint would be great, if it wern't for the pods. Viewloader crams as many balls as possible into the tiny pods, in the process, all are dented and most are ovals, which is why they break in the barrel.
Don't waste your money on this paint, buy something better...Worr Paint, Severe, Stinger, etc.
11" werks barrel
any barrel that you want
Someone gave these to me and I seem to like them so far. they are very hard, I am shooting max velocity and had no chops. I was also shooting at about 200 feet and had the hit about 4 inches from where I was aiming, but like i said my gun is set on max velocity.
Brass Eagle Blade Turbo, totally stock (I don't think you can do much to it, and why bother)
Game Face Vexor, stock.
Do not think it would make a difference.
Fill turns invisble on porous surfaces (At least the purple).
Total noob so do not have much for comparison, but do not like the ones with purple fill. It looks nice and goopy on the side of a tin shed, but vanishes as soon as you shoot anything porous, such as a piece of plywood, or I imagine an opponents clothes. The green might be better, but I have not tried it. I was able to keep a fairly tight group at about 60 feet, with only an occasional curveball. They are cheap, and come in a fairly handy tube for the small packs.
Like the price, but not the paint. Would only recommend buying if you want cheap paint to throw down range. Slightly better than Wild Streak.
