Brass Eagle introduces all new Wild Streak paintballs for 2004. The Wild Streak paintball shells are formulated using the same process as Afterburner, and they deliver the same standard of performance with regard to accuracy and reduced breakage in the marker. Reduced pigment and major technological enhancements deliver a unique look and a reduced cost to both the dealer and the consumer. Wild Streak paintballs are ideal for commercial fields that need a paintball with a thin fill for easy clean up. Available on four convenient quantities: 200 count box, 500 count box, 1,000 count box and 2,000 count box. Each quantity is offered in a colorful and protective point-of-sale packaging with dramatic shelf appeal.
The Brass Eagle Wild Streak is newer, so it should be commonly available.
DBX practice paint, other practice paint types... They're all good, but as is typical with practice grade paint, there are frequently dimples in them and are usually not *absolutely* perfect spheres, if you know what i mean.

SP Stainless Steel barrel (older model)
I rarely use my cocker with this paint, its too small for the Kaner barrel I have on it. But the SP Stainless Steel barrel I have on my Icon Z works awesome with it. I play speedball and regularly eliminate players with setups twice or three times the price of my own. (No kidding! I have some experience)
Whatever barrel you use, MAKE SURE ITS BORE SIZE IS THE SAME AS YOUR BARREL. I don't care if you're using Marbalizers, if your paint's bore size is smaller than your barrel's, you will have bad (or horrible) accuracy. Anyone can agree with that.
Resilient performance in any weather
They never "bounce"
Uhhh.... The misconception that all of BE's products are crap?
OK... I'm pretty suprised with the reviews this paint is getting here... Maybe I just got a good batch or something, but this stuff has worked great for me.
So, as a disclaimer, I'd like to say that if you're reading this to hear how bad Brass Eagle is, you will be disappointed. But if you're looking for an honest review about a product, from one player to another, you're reading the right review.
With that said, on to the good stuff.
I received 400 rounds of this paint last year. I didn't play much over the summer, (since we moved), so I still have about 25 rounds of it left. To be perfectly honest, this is the most dependable paint I have ever used. Here are some reasons I have enjoyed it:
1: Accuracy. This stuff is a perfect bore match in my SP barrel. Result? Near-perfect accuracy. Note that the bore match is vital to accuracy. It is quite possible that the people that have rated this paint poorly did not have a good paint-barrel match. The surface of the paint is very consistant, in my 400 rounds I have not found a single ball dimpled or devoid in shape. This is a sign of good paint.
2. Efficiency: The shell of the paint is naturally slick, even when you dry all the oil off. This makes it much easier to slide through your barrel and much easier to reach your velocity. With a good paint-barrel match, you might find yourself turning down your velocity knob several twists to get below 300fps.
3. Resilience and Reliability: This paint is by far the best cold-weather paint i have ever used. It doesn't freeze, contract, or crack. I played outside in 20-degree weather with wind chill, and these things held up admirably. In addition, they never bounce, in warm or cold weather. I have yet to see one of them bounce when they hit a target. Perhaps this is because I take good shots, or maybe because I haven't shot enough of them. But for all I know, they have never bounced. And still, they don't break while theyre in your pods. Overall, a mix of resilience and fragility that has performed perfectly for me (so far) on the field and at home while getting tossed around in my gear bag.
I try to be subjective in all of my reviews and not get caught up in the "glory" of the product. I have NOT tried mass amounts of this paint, I do NOT shoot over 8 bps at any time ( i use mech guns), I have NOT tried super-high-grade paint, and I have NOT tried it with a poor barrel. Regardless, I believe this is the first good product BE has made. And I've had experience: I owned and used a BE Stingray II for a year and a half, and it was HORRIBLE. I've had my share of grief with their products.
But for once, a BE product has improved my game. Using Wild Streak paint makes my gun more consistant and accurate, so I can predict where my shots will fall. Unbelievably, it is all-around the best paint I've used to this date.
*If you're one of those people that skips to the end of reviews, reads the last sentence, and then comments, bashing the entire post; go back and read my review. You'll be glad you did.
nothing works well with this, it doesn't chop constantly witha tippmann but you can't see it.
If you want to shoot someone over and over...
I tried a few pods of my friends wild streak... Do not use this paint... I would not recomend it to anyone... I got shot several times by this at close range and i thought they didn't break, but after the game we looked and it soaked through my shirt... It also seems to hurt a bit more with these... I don't know why... After a day of paintball we put our masks back on, loaded our hoppers up with wild streak, pointed our guns two feet from the ground and shot... The paintballs bounced like, twenty feet into the air!!! It was amazing...
This paint either bounces or soaks into your clothes...
My friend's triad broke a ton of this, but for some reason my tippmann didn't, ah well...-
All in all, if you want paint to shoot over bunkers by pointing this at the ground this actually might be paint for you... If your gun doesn't break the paint first... I said before that my tippy didn't break paint, i take that back we were swabbing after every other game... it was horrible...

Don't know only play with stock
I got 200 for $2
Hard to see
When i breaks it's sharp
I bought some of this paint from wal-mart and thought it was a pretty good deal. Me and dmy friends decided to have a 1-1-1 match in the woods behind my house. When my friend shot me in the back of the ear it broke, but the shell cut my ear.It left a big cut that was about 3 inches long.

The longer the better and with a muzzle break on the end
Very light fill, easy to rub off for cheaters
This type of paintball is very cheap, but they are absolutely worthless unless you are just gonna use them to chrono your gun. They shoot wild, hen-ts the name wild streak. Every gun I've used them in shot extremly bad and in every gun about 1 in 10 balls would break in the barrel. The best way to hit some-one with these balls is to not really aim at them, but beside them. Do yourself the favor and buy a better paintball.
stay away from these paintballs. They are more frustrating then they're worth

It doesn't much matter....
Cheaper than dirt
Clear Shells (Reflective Eye Doesn't Work)
In short, these balls are shaped like ovals, the fill runs like water, the fill turns clear after it dries, the clear shells wont let me use my eye, they are so hard that they ripped the bottom off of a "metal" bucket. Not to mention they also ripeed my tarp up.
Not worth even what you pay for them ($10 for 500), they can potentially ruin your gun and are not worth it, even for target practice. Shell out the $2-$5 extra and get some balls that are nice.
Good for throwing or painting an abstract picture!
have cool looking dimples on them
Dimples on every paintball
break in hopper
clogg up barrel
they curve worse than JOSH!!
these i bought for really cheap!!! the cheapest on all of the internet!!! well i got me gun and went shootin'. i mixed my scorch balls and the Pieces of %$!@!!! the scorch hit my friends. my orange junkies ten feet away from someone curved around them. they suck worse than your English Teacher!!!!! MIGHT BE GOOD IF YOUR JUST THROWING THEM!!
CRAP!!!!! do not buy save yourself. there is a plan for everyone to return to heaven!!! DONT BE PULLED DOWN INTO HELL!!!!!
These are the absolute cheapest paintballs I could find, so I thought hey they are worth a try. Well I was wrong. They are aweful, peroid. The only thing they have going for them is the price. The fill is watery, orange and hard to see on most colors, and they do not fly straight at all. They are chop like crazy. Not all of them are even round, so they wouldnt go through my neck. This is all in all bad paint.
Do not buy these. Spend alittle more, it will be worth it.
thease paintballs are verry useless still, i use them to pratice and user them to shoot friends at local bush by my house. they HURT AND I MEAN HURT when they hit but you barly can see the fill wich is kind of runny and not so great. but i would use them for pratice only because they dont really curve and a little bit do they break in the barel but i will use them to play with my friends if i have little money or if i have no paintballs but these.
O.K. I guss but please if enything dont use them in tourniments.
I use a morphus i dont know what make i think its vforce
There are no strenghs
They are soft with a almost clear fill and are painless in a match
These balls are useless and a waste of money id father pay another £20 for a more useful paintball i would never use these again they barley visible painless soft and inaccurate i have curves all the time from them and they dont travel far and will splat from the slightest hit these are a very bad paintball probalt the worste on the market.
These are useless dont buy them pay the little extra for some quility
Evil Paint - much better!
Combat paintballs- the best!
almost everything out there, marbs, scroch, draxxus....
anything is better than these horrible balls!
A barrel that does not break paint......
Hard as a rock
Fly through any brush
They don't break at all on target
people hate you (cause pain)
When i first started playing, my friends and I would buy the cheapest paint out there, brass eagle being the cheapest paint at 25 dollars a case. One game i sat behind a tree and shot at a guy maybe 50 feet away. I sat there and watch the paintballs BOUNCE of him. I hit him over 10 times.
Another game, capture the flag. I ran into the open and grabbed the flag. My friend popped out and shot me 4 times in the back, and they did not break, they STUCK to my jacket. WTF?
