Well, before I get into this, let me start of by saying:
These Painballs will work BEST with LowPressure operating markers.
I shoot an ICD Promaster, and man, thing thing was shooting through the one and only break i had! I was using the stock barrel, so I expected at least one break. I had forgotten that I had a break and that i needed to clean my barrel, why? because this paint was shooting SO NICE even with the paint alll over the barrel inside. I was abseloutly shocked! I was very amazed by how these paintballs worked.
Its just so accurate, so extremly accurate, that i dont think that i will ever shoot any other paint, ever! better than Engage, Bullets, and all theis expensive paint.
Moral of the Review: If you got a Low Pressure Marker, this is the paint for you. I promis you will NOT be disappointed.
ProBall - thicker/harder shell, fill isn't as bright, more for rec play.
ProBall Platinum - similar shell, similar fill, solid color shell (platinum silver)
Voodoo - shell is more brittle, fill is slightly lighter in color but still bright, even harder to wipe
2005 Vision Impulse, new style (03 shocker) vertical max flow, Eclipse Blade trigger, CCM rail, CCM on/off
Whatever matches the best / your prefrence
I used a larger bore one piece barrel, like I always do
Breaks on target
marks well, hard to wipe
Maybe a little pricey for some / possibly slightly too brittle for higher pressure guns.
I've shot about 2 cases of Powerball (Bronze/White-Orange) in the past 2 weeks. I used it in a 24hr scenario game, and in a local 3man tournament.
It has become an instant favourite with me. I was impressed with the way it performed in both games. I hit what i I was shooting at, and it marked well.
I had no problems with the paint. I didn't break a single ball in almost 2 cases, barrel breaks or otherwise.
If you take care of this paint, it will shoot flawlessly.
I would recommend this paint to anyone looking for something a little different than what they're normally shooting. It is great for pretty much any type of play, and I will definitely be shooting it again.
This paint has been great so far breaking on targets. When I played last weekend it rained and everyone I played with who had this had no problems with swelling, and believe me it was humid. I didn;t get to try it in the damp weather cause I was using scorch though. Also The fill is like marbs or evil fill. The shells are extremely brittle as in I broke one by droping a pod 3 feet and 1 other buy having the bag slip. I bought it at the feild though for ten bucks cause It was in the brown box (extras) The lady was kind enough to tell me that so I would spend 4 bucks more and just get rec grade paint. So for the price this stuff rocks.
The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.

They are cheap
They hurt like hell
These paintballs are cheap but the shells are very very hard and realy hurt when you get hit. The paint is also very easy to wipe and just dissapearswhen it is spread across your suit. I use this paint for target but nothing else. The paint chops more than other paint in my spyder.
They are ok for target practice

X-mag C&C blue to silver fade, Evil Pipe Barrel Kit, Evo II with Y-Board, AGD warp-feed, Air Gun Designs 3,000psi 68ci Flat Line air system
Any medium to large bore barrel
Quality, hard to wipe, breaks on target, not in marker large bags it comes in
some tend to bounce....thats about it
When I was using this paint I had a Tippmann 98 and a Bushmaster B2K. The last time I shot this paint was in 2002. I must say this paint worked great in both markers. At the time I swore by this paint and still do for the cheap price you can get it at. I never had any quality problems. The paint was always nice and round...very few had dimples in them. And they broke on target about 95% of the time.
At times they did tend to bounce....but what paint doesn't? I think this paint is really a step above PMI premiums and other paints in the middle/ rec-ball category. It is an excellent value for the price.
I think I'm gonna get another case of these and shoot them through my xmag to see how they hold up....hopefully the quality is still the same.
If you are looking for a good quality recball paint at an awesome price this is the paint for you. But I would not recommend it for tournament use....the shells are a bit too thick. But for just rec ball or practice paint it works quite well. I give this paint a 9.
Brass Eagle-not the greatest for sure, Super Swirl-good, Dusk-pretty good
Tippmann Model 98 with 14 inch Dye Excel barrel and 12 oz. tank.
Excel is the only barrel I have used on my Tippmann and these balls work the best with this barrel.
Good shell-not to hard or soft and shows up nicely on opponents.
The one thing that all balls do - BREAK.
Everything about Powerballs make them some of the best in the world. Almost none of these paintballs will bust in your barrel, gun, or hopper without your help. For as good as these balls are, they are not as well known or popular as others are, but if Paintball Inc. keeps making good balls like these, they will be on top of everyone else.
If you want good quality in a ball - these are for you.

It has Paint in it?
Okay Recently used this ball at a Scenario game, It was Huge, I used an Evil Pipe and the largest bore(.695) and it was still breaking every 10th ball or so. the ones that didnt break would twist and curve more than curly fries. I am not kidding when i say that I fired a ball and watched it curve left around a tree then right again on the other side.
It was dimpled, the fill was more like water and the shell was so hard that most of the shots that Did hit would bounce.
I switched to another paint and had No problems afterwards.
Everyone was complaining about this paint.. I think overall I would have rather used brass eagle at least that would have been worth what you paid for it.

98 Custom w/14" CP Barrel
Palmer Stabilizer & 12 oz Co2
It comes in a cammo box.
They busted very easily in my barrel, hopper, and even in my POD!!! They curve.
This review is for Powerball Classic, the one that comes in a cammo box.
This paint was used for a 24 scenario that my team played last May. It was $10 more than the other alternative ProBall, so I figured it should be better paint. It wasn't, it was horrible. I've never seen paint curve like this before. I'd check my barrel and my speed to make sure that wasn't the problem but most balls still curved. This is also the only paint I've ever had break in my barrel. Just the other day I had some actually break in my pod!!! How the heck does that happen??
It should be noted that I was playing with this in a very warm & humid environment. But this is the only paintball that I've had problems like this in heat & humidity.
It curves, it breaks in your barrel & hopper & pods. There are much better paints out there than this one for the same price or cheaper. Don't buy this especially if you're in hot or humid environments.
RAT Impulse with vision, Vet Max flow, ND no rise, ND Magno Trigger ( Very Very Sweet), SP Progressive Barrel
I wouldnt shoot this stuff through any barrel whatsoever
Uhmm where to begin; lumps in the balls, shell qualtiy is horrible, warped balls.
Okay-- its not like I just started playing yesterday,--- I am shooting an Impulse which is LP-- which means it is pretty easy with the ball-- but I couldnt even shoot a string of over 4-5 with out getting barrel breaks--- thats right breaks in the barrel-- not in the chamber-- thanks to the eye of course.. Also used an Gen X A/C and well we wont even go there-- it seemed like this stuff was breaking more in the barrel than it was on the opponents.
UNLESS YOU HAVE NOTHING ELSE to shoot-- even then again I would probably go to Wal Mart and buy Brass eagle over this stuff.. GET EVIL-- RULE THE WORLD
