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.
14 in. Freak
Stock A-5 Barrel
Not too many breaks
Shell not too strong, not too weak
Curves at long distances
Fill is easy to wipe off
This is still my favorite paint for my stock barrel. It doesn't work as well with my freak but it's okay. If you don't wont to spend the money for the marbs, go with these. I like them a lot, and they're not too expensive. My freind ran out of paint so i sold him some, and they didn't work for his gun, i think it was a b2k, but they're great for the A-5.
Get them they don't break as much as the afterburners and they're not too much money.

Well let me just say these are great paintballs. Let me just say in a pack of 900, 100 them are deformed 650 of them are good 100 of them are as hard as a marble and 50 are soft. When you open them up there are no dimples. Overall great balls. Nice fill also but they only come in purple or green.
dbx, wild streak, blue streak, anything walmart or dick's
viewloader prodigy e-grip
J&J 14inch ceramic
9 and 20 Oz. co2
anything, maybe a larger bore
Accurate[if shot a right velocity]
Don't chop or pop
Blows through brush easily
Around the center they are a bit bigger
I jus bought these today cuz I was gonna go play some VIP w/ friends and needed something cheap. Despite all the other reviews this paint is really not bad at all. It can easily compete with other practice paint like dbx or anything like that. Obviously for such a cheap paint and it being at walmart, there are dimples, nothing bad though. I shot a few rounds off about 50 yards to a tree and a ball, no problems accurate to an extent. These are also very hard, i was shootin point blank at 4 inch thick icicles and blew them in half[sorry for the people on the receiving end of these.
It is good, cheap and to some extent accurate. They don't chop or break in the barrel, and they can easily shoot through brush and any other crap that gets in your way...
Well i got some for christmas, and they were pretty bad. I knew they were bad cause they have a low review rating, but last week i was out of paint except for these. Well, they are better than nothing, so i did use them. They shot ok, but they curved. I think they would do fine in a different gun than my stingray, because my ray is tough on paintballs. It breaks about 1 outa 500-600 scorches, and it breaks about 1 in 50-75 of these. These are very delicate. They will break like eggs if you drop them on teh ground. Inaccurate too.
Uh, a little pricy and the quality is pretty cheap. I dont liek them, but they do look cool. And they pop in ur gun,
Curves and spirals
Pops even when you drop it.
These paint suck. They always break in my barrel. I bought 1000 and I still have to find a way to get rid of them. The only way to not let these balls break is if you turn your gun down to about fifty fps. Since the paint was so thick, the paint got stuck in my elbow when it chopped. That caused the rest of the paintballs wouldn't drop the whole way down so it continued to chop. If you ever decide to get this paint then put on your stock barrel because I don't think you would want to have your good barrel messed up on your first few shots. It made a good shotgun though, and in one game it didn't chop the whole time which was pretty rare. Good thing was when my friends ran out they used these paint also and they still had there gun on high velocity so It messed up there gun pretty bad especially the spring which made no sense how paint got back there.
Never buy this paint! Unless you think it is good. Very cheap though. Quality sucks since it pops when you drop it.

Well don't let the name fool you, these little suckers are far from heavy on anything. I don't think I found one even close to being spherical and we aren't even talking dimples here. So basically you can put your marker in a shooting stand, and the grouping fired past 40 feet would be all over the place. I had about 20 dimpled ones in a box of 200, probably becuase they had been there awhile. These are fine if you want to let your siblings shoot your marker without wasting your good stuff.
The shell however is great, no breaks in the barrel although on a couple the seam has a noticeable raise. The fill is no better than the brass eagle brand fill, it works.
If you want to impress your family memebers with a cool named product and let the waste a few rounds trying to hit a target, then this is the stuff. But if you just want some cheap paint, then there's others out there i would prefer.
Come with free tube, but that isn't even very good
Really goo up your gun
Okay. That is an extreme over-statement for this crap. The first fifteen out of 100, I was actually impressed. But then, I had a break. The next few minutes I wanted to shove my foot up the retard at viewloader that came out with this crap's you-know-what-hole. None of the rest of the balls were straight, or even close. I had at least fifteen more breaks within 5 minutes, just because of that one break. Cleaned by barrel out and went to shoot again. Whaddaya know? They still swerved like crazy and didn't go straight. Those people that gave this product anything more than a 5 must be used to balls that swerve at a 90 degree angle a foot out of the barrel. About the only reason you might want to buy these is the tube that comes with the 100 pack. But don't buy anything else. The boxes of paint are useless. At least now I have an extra pod.
I give it a 2 because of the crappy pod that comes with it.

Dude use a whisper but if you can get ahold of a veiw loader gun use this paint with
Hard To Wipe
No effect by weather
WalMart treat paint bad some dimples
some times the weight will slow down your balls
Ok guys this stuff is just as expensive as another paint (ive only seen it carried at wal-mart so you are going to have to have you ID with you and be 18 to purchase this paint) but the difference is shown in the strength and accuracy in this paint! This paint has a bright pretty purple color fill that is extremely hard to wipe! The accuracy in these things is great if it does not have any dimples (thanx to good old wal-mart)! These ball are harder then any balls ive used (Draxus, PMI, Empire, Zap, Blitz)! In being hard they do hurt extremely bad worse then PMI (Do not use while playing first time paintballs)! In being hard they are an excellent choice for Rec and scenario play(they will bounce off trees and will break through brush and hit your target)! Finally they don't seem to be effected by weather. i have used these balls though rain, wind(10 to 35= no effect on accuracy will curve on occasion for the harder blowing winds) and freezing temps most effect for each is
Rain= wet balls will break in barrel (3% of the time)
Wind= would not use in winds over 40 mph (100% chance of curvage)
Freezing=if left in winds uncovered will freeze (100% chance of freezing) who's going to play when it is below freezing outside anyways
Good balls for rec and scenerio!
ok for Speed Ball!
Will hit your target!
Hurt (compaired to most paints)
Use if you have viewloader gun, or are playing rec
Blue Arc Circuit
Brass Eagle Blue Streak
Tippmann 98 Custom
-Dead on Paintball Double Trigger
-Come in cool pods
-Some are dimpled
I got 300 of these for christmas and I immediately came to this site and looked at the other reviews. I saw that they got a bad rating so I went out back and tested 'em. They seemed to work fne to me. There was no breaking, or curving. I like these balls and I will probablu buy them again. Maybe I just got a good batch or something.
I would reccommend these balls. Granted they are not a tourney grade paint but I like them for rec play and they seem to be overall a good paintball.
DBX (alot better) AMP(alot better) Blue Streak (about the same)
Spyder Xtra with 14" Dye Ultralite Barrel, Kingman ACS Bolt
The Ultralite is good. Maybe a J&J
-Thick fill makes it hard to wipe
-Don't break in the barrel often
-Found almost only at Wal Mart so they have dimples
Viewloader did an ok job with these. They are very hard to wipe for you cheaters out there. The only bad thing is that they're found at Wal Mart. Wal Mart employees, being the Einsteins that they are, never turn them over so they have serious dimples after sitting there for a few days. But if you can get them right as they arrive, they are very good paintballs that don't break in the barrel alot.
Try and find these somewhere other than Wal Mart and they'll be great.
