Well at least they are round in shape. They do shoot out of your barrel.
Very low quality Paintballs.
Ok, they are cheap but that's it. They are not very accurate at all. I used a Spyder Xtra with an ACI zero Gravity barrel and they shot the same as when I switched to my 04 Cocker and a Kaner Barrel system (Which is one of the best you can buy!). I switched to another brand of much higher quality paint. And it was the difference between night and day. "DON'T BUY THIS PAINT",
If someone offers you this paint run away, far away.
Big Ball, Evil, cheap generic paint, and probably a few other kinds I don't remember
2001 cocker w/ ups
can't say that I can really know how to make this stuff shoot straight
Cheaper than most
Seems like good cold weather paint
Good luck with getting them to break on anything
I have two experiences with this paint, and therein lies my review.
I was reffing at the local field, and a guy with an Orracle was there. He said that his accuracy was horrible. I thought that was kind of weird, considering his gun. I shot it, and sure enough, paint was flying everywhere. We checked for a barrel break, and the barrel was perfectly clean. We inspected the paint. Almost every ball was dimpled, misformed, and complete and total crap. He had just bought it. The field owner gave him Evil to replace the misformed paint, and his accuracy was ball on ball.
I played a few weekends later, and I had a bag of this paint. For the heck of it, I did a drop test. It bounced on the floor three times, and didn't break. I did the same thing four more times, without a break. It was forty degrees outside. It didn't break until I got pissed and threw it down really hard. My teammate shot this out of his BKO. In a one on one, I watched the paint from his barrel fly all over the place. I ran out of paint, right as he landed one on my shoulder. I yelled "Hit" and checked my shoulder. No break. And once again, the paint was misformed, with multiple dimples.
For 50 a case, I'd hope for some performance, but I got nothing.
If you want to screw someone over, buy them this. Otherwise, stay the heck away.

None, this stuff is terrible
I went to my local field to play and when i opened the case which i bought for 45 bucks which I though wasn't bad but when I opened it I noticed that 4 of 5 of the ball were dimpled so I went and exchanged for another case and it was the same, so I decided that I would play with it and I was using the 687 freak insert and I started shooting and none of them flew true Ihad to basically bunker someone or wait on them to try to bunker me to hit them this paint is terrible Iwould save the money and buy better paint I hope that this helps
I can shoot them through my cp one piece(.689)if do not slope my gun down.
None what so ever
Very undersized, not round, cheap fill, never breaks on target(only in gun)
This paint stinks(literally). But besides that, it is really cheap quality.for one thing, it is very undersized,, my friend used his freak kit to see how small the paint was, he was using the .679 insert and that was barly small enough. I said that i can shoot it thought my Cp, that is if i do not point my gun down or else, the ball just rolls out. I also have an autococker pump. I tried shooting this paint with it and i couldnt. I shot about 4 balls out of 40 including five breaks.The balls were so small that they always loaded in groups of two, they would always roll out. and i wasnot even aiming my gun down that much. I was geting shot from three different directions and i was snap shooting and praying that a ball would go air borne, but all that happened was that i got bunkered and i was left with a pile of paint on the ground and in my barrel. In the 4 shots that i did take, the paint was not accurate. And this is because aside from it being small, these paintballs are not round. this paint sucks!! Might as well just put rocks in your gun and try to shoot that.
Do not buy, I thought that i had a bad batch, but i bought two cases at different times at different locations and guess what, they both suck, You can buy bluestreak that is way better than this(Not to say that bluestreak is good, just better that Menace)
Green Spyder Imagine
Green 32 degress shark drop forward
J&J Cermic 14 in. Barrel
Doesnt really matter
Most were dimpled, several broke in bag Bad Accuracy
I got these for my birthday and all i can say is that they were pure crap. Upon openning the first bag i noticed that about 4/5 of the balls were dimpled and as i said above several balls broke in each bag and they had really bad accuracy.
Stay away from these they have bad accuracy and made crappily.

anytyhing medium bore. i myself am using a cp one piece .689 bore. 14 inch
-Strengths- I used these for the first time today. they were pretty nice. they shot straight and were hitting right to where i was aiming. not easy to wipe. i found that out the hard way after a game trying to clean up for the next one. broke on contact with target. kinda froze on the way home. i was shootin a bottle and they wouldnt break.
-Weaknesses- When i was filling my pods, i found quite a few that were extremely dimpled. had to throw them out of course. not really sure i had any other problems...ill edit when i remember them.
Not bad paint. not really much i can say. decent for field paint but the dimpling problem made me mad. oh well. it gets an 8 cause i had almost a 100 with dimples.
Uneven shell, many cases came in the form of soup.
This stuff is a step down from what it used to be, Big Ball, and to be honest its not worth the money, I work at a local field and we were shipped this stuff and every case(80 cases) was bad. So we sent it back and they sent us a new skit of paint, and assured us that it was good paint, IT WAS BAD!!!!! So now we're going back to using Premium. If you do find yourself using this junk, use it when you're chronoing, not when your playing.
Keep in mind this paint could be good in other instances, but this is MY review.
Green Spyder Imagine, 20 oz. PMI, Viewloader eVLution II Y Board, New Designz Low-Rise Clamping Feed, 14 " 32 degrees Carbon Fiber Barrel, removed sight,removed venturi,some others coming soon.
Break well, good thick fill, RPS
pink(not usable someplaces) green(ok) Black(????)
Bayou Dragon uses this as field paint along with pmi premiums. Menace is much better. these fly straight and break well. They have hi visibiltiy shells, but the fills (BLACK!!???)can be questioned. i know the pink is fine though,greens ok.i went through a few (1k) with no breaks.
Unless they have allstars or marbs at the same price, buy some.

Painful since they don't break
I bought this paint because field paint is required at Hollywood Sports Park (HSP) in CA and this paint is the cheapest one there which sells for $50/case. I'm new to this sport but I've read that paintballs should be stored in bags that protect against humidity. The Nel-Splat and Marb cases I bought seemed to do this just fine. But these balls are packaged in bags that have holes in them! Soft shell, non-brittle feel to them. Drop them from 10ft and I doubt any will break.
I experienced many bounces thoughout the day as both a shooter and a target. About half of the hits to my body did not break. The only shots that broke consistently were those on my mask. My friend had the same experience. The most frustrating part was when I hit 2 ppl from about 50ft away with a ref standing about 10ft from them. The ref checked em and then shouts to me "they're ok". Apparently the balls didn't break cause I definitely hit them. Sure enough, the same 2 ppl ended up taking out me and my friend later on.
At the end of the day I had a bag of 500 remaining in the trunk of my car and these balls were all stuck together. The ones near the bottom of the bag were all squished and now useless. Granted, it was hot in the car but I also had a case of house paint (that I bought for $35) from Paintballaz, a local shop, that was also in the car that retained their roundness and did not stick together and get squished like the Menace balls did.
Finally, because of the soft shell, the balls don't stay round which results in HORRIBLE accuracy.
Do youself a favor and STAY AWAY, FAR AWAY from this paint. If you are playing at HSP then I would definitely pay the extra money for the other paint options. Hopefully this review will save you from a bad experience.
If 5 is average, then I am giving this a 1 for being way below average. And add another generous 1 point since it kept me in the game longer by bouncing off me when the opponent was using it...for a total rating of 2.
