XBall Silver Series - premium quality formulation for the heavy demands of commercial Game Fields, Tournament Promoters, and Pro Shops. Formulated to function in every kind of marker, from Timmy's to Tippmanns, XBall Silver carries the torch at game sites and Team practices, regional tournaments and league play.
FILLS: Field Operators and Players crave the break-on-target reliability. XBall Silver's bright fills are easily seen by Referees. (Washable).
SHELLS: XBall Silver gloss shells reliably break on impact, yet endure abuse from rental markers and modified high-speed guns.
The XBall Paintball Silver Paintballs are newer, so they should be commonly available.
When I first opened the box, I immediately knew that these were going to be good paintballs. The box can take alot of weight. The individual 500rd packages were vacuum-packed so the balls wouldn't move around during shipping. I found no dimples or breaks.
The seem is smooth, though not as smooth as XBall Gold (the major difference). The shell is neither too brittle nor too hard. None broke in my barrel. They should handle well in rough blowback markers and electro-pneumatic markers both. While playing I did not see any bounce.
It is hard to measure consistency without a caliper. But from visual inspection, like most other paintballs (except for Wal-Mart brands), there were no noticeable variances.
The fill is nice. The fill is not the thickest I've seen or the thinnest. It doesn't have the most fill nor does it have an insufficient dose. The best thing about the fill, is that it is very, very bright. Get the green fill like I did. The fill is certainly one of the best you can get.
I've had these for over a year and a half now, and they haven't even dimpled. Though, the shell is weaker and definitely not as brittle. So, I'll expect that they'll bounce.
I would definitely purchase these again. Though, I haven't seen much of difference between them and XBall Bronze.
Bright fill, breaks every time, flies traight, Cheap!!!
Fill fades after a few minutes, NO big deal.
This paint breaks on target and the fill is super bright. I nailed a guy in the pack from all the way across the field and I could see it easily. I had orange fill, and it was so bright, that it could even be seen easily on yellow and red clothing!
THE GOOD- The fill is unbeleivably bright, and they fly perfectly straight. The shell is perfect, it broke on the 4th drop from 5'3". The price, come on! For 35$ a case for high quality tournament paint, why not???
THE BAD- While the fill is extremely bright, it fades rather quickly. But don't worry, the hit will still be bright throught the duration of a game. If one of these breaks in your hopper, boy are you in for a treat!!! The fill spreads easily making it super hard to clean.
If you have any friends that like wiping, they won't get away with it with this paint. It is only 35$ a case, that's only 5$ more than monster balls!!!! These are great paintballs and recommended to everyone!!!!
Midnight- not there
karnage- not even close
Big ball- junk
Monster Ball- don't even think about buying this
Xball bronze- almost as good
impact- not quite
tippmann 98c pro, Cyclone, 14 inch All American, 11 inch Werks, Spec ops stock w/air thru and remote line,
Anything that fits the bore (kind of on the small side)
Break on impact
don't age easily
cheap (40 bucks online)
None except that the price has gone up scince they came out
This paint was recommended by a friend so I went and ordered a case online. It was awesome. I shot 3000 without a single chop and none curved. The fill was easy to see and almost impossible to wipe. Another thing about this paint is that it's cheap. You can't normally get tourney grade paint for 40 $$$. It breaks from about ten feet when dropped and the shells shatter completely. The seams are invisible. This stuff shot like bullets out of my Tippmann. Strongly recommend

Fill thick as snot.
Flew straight with proper paint to barrel match.
The blue color fill I bought is not very effective. On most color clothing except for black it was barely visible, despite seeming to be bright when test fired. Especially hard to see on grey clothing / masks.
BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT:
Maybe the other colors are better. I have had good overall experience with ProCaps paint (see my list above).
Try it for yourself, maybe in a 500 round bag before committing to a case. But I do not recommend the blue fill. So I won't trash on the paint entirely, note my rating. This is not a rant forum. I did send ProCaps an email politely explaining why I think the blue fill is junk.
I've used pretty much every Draxxus/Diablo, RPS/PMI and ProCaps paint out there.
I shoot a 2K5'd GZ, Excalibur, Viking, Texas Storm, Ripper, Ripper 2 and Ripper 3 Intimidators. I run a Halo or an Empire Reloader B (and now a Pulse) with a PMI Pure Energy or Crossfire Tank.
I've used CP's and Stiffi's and I shoot dead accurate ropes with X-Ball Silver paint.
Incredibly consistent paint with a bright, non-staining fill.
X-Ball paint is my favorite paint to shoot throughout the year. I've found Silver to be the the best all around paint. It's just brittle enough that it's going to break when it hits something and the fill is thick enough that you'll clearly see when it breaks. The shell is durable enough to use in woodsball or airball. It'll break cleanly on people while not breaking on every twig in the woods. It'll also shoot consistently and crisply while aiming at small targets on an airball field. The paint is consistently round and the seams are even unlike other paints. The pricing is reasonable when comparing it to other paint in this price range. It's a little more brittle than Bronze and less than Gold and is a nice mid-grade paint for practice/recball.
A top notch paint at a reasonable price. Great for all players.
98 custom guns and barrels work fine, haven't tryed much of anything else.
Bright, Ver accurate, break on contact.
I got these at my local pro shop, and just figured they were good. Heck, they're great. They have this awesome flourescent yellow fill that can be seen all through the woods. Back when I used a 98 custom, the flew great. Strait and Accurate. Accuracy counts for alot in woodsball.
I would recomend these paintballs to anyone who wants to have an edge on the opponents. BUY THEM they're worth the $!

Good marking color
I had to use the smallest bore in my kit (.684 i think) to shoot this paint which was okay i think smaller bore shoots better. When i opened the bag i noticed there were alot of dempls and imperfections, just as bad at the rec sport, but the bore sizing was more consistant. I didn't get any odd balls that were so big they burst in the barrel. I used 2 cases each bought a month part one from an old shipment and the other from a new shipment (paint is shipped every 3 weeks to my field) both cases had a bad dimple problem. I wasn't impressed i think is should be much better than that.
Shoots better than draxxus rec sport, but shoot just about the same as the x-ball bronze.
Zap Spank = 9.0 (cheap and accurate, occasional bad bag)
Jumbo = 7.0 (Not so accurate)
Rps Marbilizer 8.5 (accurate but expensive)
Tippmann A5, E trigger, Flatline
Consistency... very few balls if any were ovular. Decently priced.
Let me just say that I've shot about 7500 balls through my flatline since I've had it. I've tried about ten different brands of paint now. I've never had a break in my flatline until last Saturday. I bought Xball Silver because of the great rating on this website and the decent price on Action Village. I feel bad putting a blemish on this brand, but I feel that this is useful information that many flatline users would like to read.
I don't know if it's how all Xball paintballs are produced, but they are textured on one side. I think that is why I had multiple breaks. In fact it's the only thing I can come up with. As soon as I changed back to the other brand of paint I had no problems. If you compare the feel to other brands, it does feel a bit rougher. I can only assume that the roughness between the barrel and the paint did not mesh well, which is why I'm giving this product an average rating.
However, my friend who also has a Tippmann but uses a smart parts tear drop barrel said he experienced no problems at all with this brand.
I would not buy this brand again to use with my flatline due to balls breaking in the barrel.
This is a good quality paintball to use in tournaments. Its shell is pretty much break every time quality. The fill is thick and bright. It shoots very straight. This is a top quality paint to use. Xball gold or helfire will be better but if you want to save a couple dollars this stuff definatly gets the job done.
Rampage - nowhere near it
JT Evolve - good paint but doesnt always break on contact
Doesnt break in gun
DOES break on target
Flight path is perfect
Just buy it!
I shot these one Saturday, and I must say, it was very nice paint. The flight was perfect, with no curving. Not a single break in the gun or hopper, and very few if any bounces off of opponents. We had a couple issues throughout the day, that involved the paint, but I dont think it was paint related. Overall Illgive these a 10.
