OK so I picked up these Grippers a while ago for 35 bucks, including 100 Grippers V Balls and a velcro target. It seemed like a fantastic deal; 35 dollars and I get all I need rather than spending 100+ dollars on reballs! Sounds too good to be true right?
Well it is. I take them home and dump 'em in a pod and take the whole thing out back, propping the target against a stood up stepping stone. I start firing my shots, everything works fine until suddenly the shots stop. I look up and see that my Halo B jammed... So I dig my hand into the hopper, dislodge the problem ball, and continue firing... Five seconds later it jams again! The reason? It's because the vball is simply a tiny plastic ball with a velcro layer around it that's glued on like an orange peel. Since hopper are designed to fit paintballs and not this little things, I found that balls would roll into the gap between the block that forces the balls into the feedneck and the front of the hopper, drop in front of a feeding ball, and jam up the whole system. After a few test runs, I looked at the target to see it already falling apart! The back had dents all over it and the different colored panels were already splitting through. Not even duct tape could save this awful target. I also noticed that after a few uses many of the balls began to peel [as I explained the velcro is like a peeled orange reattached to the core] and I've lost a few because the velcro completely peeled off.
The price may seem right, but like I said, it's too good to be true. The small balls in combination with a force feed hopper make for an unpleasant experience, and you're better off with a velcro mitt that comes with those velcro catch sets at walmart than the target that comes with it. An easier solution is three packs of peanut M&M's and a garbage bag. I give it a 4/10 because it at least gets the job somewhat done, even if it is in a half-*ssed way.
4 out of 10

Random Brand on/off (see review)
Victory Boarded Halo
G36C hand guard and rail
Six Position Stock
Tasco 30mm sight
Ak mag kit
Trigger Spring Mod
anything as far as i know
Great for indoor practice
Targets cheaply made
I got these as a christmas present from my brother, and setting them up, i found the balls o break very easily, and the target began to crack from getting shot so many times, the balls are very small, and as a result i have found them not to be accurate at all.
Firing them with my Dad's a-5 and response trigger, i noticed something else, when your firing fast with these, and the balls hit one another, then either bounce very far, or break, and the velcro comes off, all of which is not fun, espically when the balls bounce with enough force to embed them selves in pop cans..... wear a mask when you shoot these... thats all i can say
Save your money, get a better set of reusable balls, r-balls, v-balls, not these.
Reuseable, good for checking your gun and not going to the field
Sort of expense and velcro wears preety easily
I am a tournament player and It was a rainy day and my team and i decided to buy these to shot in the house. It was 20 bucks for 100 of them and a target. We shot them from my teammates ego and they stuck to the target very well. Only problem is they jam ur hopper, so if u have a rip drive in a halo use it! The velcro wears of the rumber ball, but we didnt care. They sting when u get shot, more then a normal paintball. (i got shot form 15ft away so it hurt, but not that bad) If u just want to shot in the house and fool around get these and you will have a great time.
They r cool and you save money b/c u dont buy real paint. Got target practice for like snapshoting and just working on accuracy. I give it a 7 b/c the velcro wears and they jamed my halo, but it was nothing i couldnt fix.
I have used the Vballs Target System as well as Grippers. Both products are priced in a similar range. The quality of workmanship in the Vballs is far superior as compared to the Grippers. Grippers are machine made in China and the Vballs are all handmade with quality workmanship. Vballs will last much longer because of the better quality. Because they look the same does not mean that they are.
Tippman A-5 with long barrell and auto feed system
Any .68 caliber will work fine.
Save money on paintballs.
Glue does not stick to velcro ball. Targets fall apart easily. Balls come apart easily.
Grippers are Ok if you don't care about quality of the product you are purchasing. For the same price I would recomend trying the Vballs just because of they quality issues. Both are great products that give paintballers a new alternative to messy paintballs. Great for snap shooting. Vballs perform much like paintballs due to the uniform shape as the Grippers tend to hook and slice because of the irregular shape of the balls
Grippers are of very poor quality and I recomend if your going to spend that kind of money to buy the better quality vballs. Someone had a good idea!

J&J 14" Ceramic Barrel

Not same size,weight
Leave fuzzy in gun
Target doesnt stick
I was shooting some and i noticed that thy break easily, off of concrete from 100 feet away.
u cant shoot them up close without them bouncing off the target and there not acurate far away.
i hit 14 from 100 feet away and they were all over the place.
dont get me wrong there alot of funn, because of the concept of it, but i would try another brand before you go with this 1
then fuzzies are all over and i dont feel liek cleaning it
Gowith another brand before buying htis, they need alot of improvements
