Used to be anything with a .688 bore size, but now the balls have gotten smaller so I'd say anything with a .686 or .687 bore size.
Xball bronze is really great stuff! I shoot these balls out of my wrath (because I shoot ALOT and their a little cheaper than the gold which I shoot outta my cocker) using a halo b and a dye boomstick and they shoot great. The balls are very consistent to the .688 caliber. The fill is very thick and very bright, especially with the green fill. The seams are flush with the ball making it nearly perfectly round (i don't think there is truly a perfectly round paintball, although these are pretty close). The shell is a little thicker than the silver and gold xballs which make these balls ideal for punching through dense brush and leaves for those woodsball games. The only downside is that you will experience more bounces with these balls when compared to silver and gold. I've shot about 15 cases through my gun and have only had maybe a handfull of barrel breaks from each case. For the most part, the balls shoot accurately and consistently, with the occasional wild shots. I've used them on hot, humid summer days, and below freezing, snowy winter days and there was virtually no change in performance. The balls are of premium/competition grade and are very inexpensive @ only $39 bucks a case at either actionvillage or xtreme paintball! I have never had a broken ball or any leakers in the bags! Oh yeah, shelf life (as far as I can tell) with these is not an issue as long they are stored in their bags at room temperature, moderate humidity, and in the dark. While these balls are great, Xball silver is a step up, and Xball gold is an bigger step up (duh).
All in all, these are great balls, and for the price they are charging on-line, they are a steal. I'm rating these balls in comparison to Xball silver (9/10) and Xball gold (10/10). These get an 8/10. But if you compare them to any other brand of ball in the 30-40$ (maybe even 50$) category, these either blow 'em out of the water or give 'em a run for their money and I'd give 'em a 10/10 in that aspect.

-No dimples, sh0ots straight and consistent, no breaks in barrel and decent price.
None with performance. It does have an odd odor if you want to be picky.
The only type of paint the Angel 1 can't shoot is the Walmart grade crap. This review is more geared for experienced players with high end markers looking for a good paint at a good price. I shoot a ton of paint per outing, so I need a cost effective product with good performance. The Xball Bronze is very good. I got the case for $53.00 at Cousins Paintball, but I see it online at Orderpaintball.com for $30.00.
I recommend this paint, and will use it again.
Great for rec and practice. It is also good enough for tourney play.
back up promaster
ndz rail on/off combo
.687 worked really well for me
Breaks on Target
Hard to wipe
looks pretty kool i guess
I had several barrel breaks
I decided to play down at nvp and this is the paint they use. it worked very well, the paint was round and it flew stright. throughout the five hours i was there i had several barrel breaks with this stuff. the thick fill made it hard to shoot through so i had a swab with me every time i went out.
Good paint. more than i wana pay for paint but o well. give it a try
xball silver - genrally better
Anarchy - better
Hemmorrhage - on par

Decent fill, breaks on target
I've used xball bronze 3 times, 2 out of the 3 were just fine but the batch i recieved this weekend was horrible. The 2 good batched ive used before were consistantly round with few dimples(but still....the were dimples), and broke damn near every time on target. The fill is bright and thick enough not to be wiped. The case i just used this weekend was the worst batch of paint ive ever used. The balls were the green/bronze ones with 75% of the shell being green and 25% bronze. Its almost as if the balls were produced as they were running low on the bronze layer so the green had to stretch to make up the difference. The green part of the shell was increadibly soft and thin while the bronze was quite hard. Most of the balls were also "egg" shaped, and each bag had a few breaks in it. I sorted through the balls to try and salvage what i could, but threw away about 1200 of the 2000rnd case. I would have hoped procaps had some sort of protocall for this not to happen, but i guess a few defects can get past the best of them.
Buy the paint if you want some cheap balls with decent quality, or spend the extra $2 and get xball silver which i find to be far superior. Cross your fingers you dont get a bad batch.
pmi premium, similar in feel, but somewhat inferior in quality
32 degrees competition, not as good (in my opinion)
Spyder Amg Classic
J&J Ceramic barrel (12inch)
Viewloader 12 volt revy with Y board, (NOT X board)
mine, (J&J Ceramic)
No breaks in barrel
Incredible price for quality
May not always break on target
I got this as an unknown substitution for my 32 degrees competition paint. Somewhat suspicious at first, I read the reviews here, and decided that it looked pretty good. Using it I was fabulously impressed. I have never been a great fan of any flaw in paint, and these had none that I noticed except for the occasional one not breaking on people. This may be because the weather was a tad cool (60s). Anyway, I didn't break one round out of five hundred with performance that makes me think it could be more like the whole case, whereas I broke three or four out of a 500rnd of pmi premium I was shooting from at the same time. The paint was very accurate (as far as the wind permitted) and more importantly, was consistantly round. The fill was fantastic, broke bright neon green. The price was approximately 40 dollars and I've never seen a better buy. I didn't ever shoot auto, so I can't tell you how it does on the really fast spectrum, but for semis this is just fine.
for the price, this paint is unbeatable. I have no idea about tournament, but for woodsball, this is perfect. This is my new paint.
I use smart part teardrop, and it works grest for my autcocker
doesn't go "around" the target but actually ON the target!!!
Doesnt allways break
I've tested different paint for my autococker, but the X-Ball Bronze is the best ball i have played with, not single break in 600 shots, flyes nice. I have always see this in a Kingman Rodeo and a JT tac 5, they worked well in both! Bt it doesn't always break so that's not to nice. And i have also used it as a winter ball and int works great in zero condition.
Good alround paint!!!

Angel Speed 04, with CP dropforward and ASA, soft face bolt, Evo 2 egg hopper with Z board and dye 14 inch boomstick or smartparts 14 inch barrel.
they fit my 688 barrel fine.
shell is eye friendly
Some had dimples
I like to try different paint since price does come as a factor most of the time, so me and my cousin decide to go and get paint for our next tourney and the local paint ball shop is closed. ( weird on a sat , this never happened before) so we go a few miles down and get to this other paintball shop, And their prices are average to pretty high.
So we see they have Xballs bronze for about 35-36 a case. and that was waaaaay cheaper than the usual 40-45 we spend on a case of other paint. So we try it out.
I load it in my pods and my egg evo.
I do have to say I was mighty impressed. I actually thought I would have some kind of barrel break or even in the hopper, but to my suprize nothing. These balls shot perfect. they didnt gum up my hopper or my gun. about 98% were dimple free.I am currently starting to play with these from now on. you just cant beat the performace and price!
I say you want to save your hard earned moolah for upgrades on your gun, then roll with these. They are really great for reg and tourney play.
RPS Marballizers (Not as good)
PMI Big Ball(not as good)
RPS El Tigre (Not as good)
DBX Practice Grade (Not nearly as good)
Nelson Whack Paintballs (not nearly as good)

NDZ medium drop
No Breaks in Gun
Usually Breaks On Target
A few bounces
This is the best paint I have ever used. Ive tried marbs and el tigre, and these destroy both of them in my opinion. These are perfectly round, have a perfectly smooth seam, thick fill, and are very accurate. The only thing I could say bad about these, is that I had bounces on one occasion where I was shooting another player at the length of the field, and hit him about 30-40 times, none broke. Granted, it was from the other end of the field, and the paint was in the sun for some time, so the shells could have been rubbery from the sun. Im not going to knock points off on that because that can happen with any paint.
This paint is the best, besides X-Ball Silver and Gold. GET IT! BEST FOR THE MONEY!
suppression barrel kit
1x30 weaver base red eyes scope
real action paintball tactical vest
dye 70/4500 throttle bottle
None that i have found
My feild sells these balls as their pro paint, and only by the case. their other balls are the midnight, but anyway, i first bout these to share with a buddy and what a difference they made. they have fewer dimples than i've seen on any ball, and they break 99.9% of the time when they hit. out of over 6000 rounds i think i can count the number of bounces i've had on one hand. the price is pretty good too, the local store sells them for $55(cad) a case. the colour of them is really easy to see to, i hit a guy from like 60 yards, and you could easily see the orange spot on his head.
This is my prefered product, and i will try to get it everywhere i play paintball.
Look great coming 200mph at you, then splatting on your face!!!
They break 9/10 times , sometime you have the occasional bounce.
All i can say is great paintballs, buy them cheap at "orderpaintball dot com" and have a great product, they do not work as well in high-end guns as compared to blow-backs low-ends i love the bronze color of the half shell, look really good with yellow half and fill all in all they are the best -35 and below paintballs period, dont argue with me im always right!!!
Great balls, get them, be happy, own your friends, ahhh... another great day.
