spyder Imagine with 14" J&J Ceramic barrel, 20oz CO2 tank, Empire Reloader 2 hopper.
I have only tested it with J&J Ceramic, but any barel should work.
Break upon impact
Will keep for long periods (explained in body)
I can no longer find them.
I picked up a case of these back in the fall because they were on sale. i took them home and put them in my closet. I didn't play all winter, and I forgot about them. I just happen to come across them the other day, so I figured I'd give them a try. When I loaded them into my hopper, I was surprised to find that there were no dimples. I started shooting them, and noticed that they were going straight without any curving. I was highly surpirsed about this because I assumed that they would be going everywhere since they had sat im my closet for about 4 months. I shot about 500 of them and didn't have any breaks in my gun and every ball broke on impact. I will be sure to buy these if I can find them again.
These are a great ball that do not dimple over time, break on impact, have a high viscus fill, and go straight. I would reccommend everyone trying them out.

Fill, consistency, cost, barrel fit
Hard to find in local stores, thick shells (sorta)
So i have hunted for a paint to fit my Opsgear barrel (BIG BORE) and finally found these at my local shop (and that has been the only time they've had any in when i came by). The cost is good only $35 -$40 depending on where you find them, and the fill is nice and thick and pretty bright. Mine is pink with pink fill and it sticks out really well when some one eats it...haven't found any of the shape inconsistencies others have in their reviews yet, but i will update if i do.
Overall a solid and inexpensive ball for rec and training as well as big bore barrels. A little thick shelled for the speedball field i feel, but other then that a good investment, four of the guys in my team use it and have had good things to say.
Indian Creek 2k3 BKO w/ Dye UltraLite 16'', Bob Long Torpedo reg, Redz mini rail, Redz ASA w/ on-off, VL Evolution 2, Pure Energy 68 cu/3000 psi w/ redz cover, & Shock Tech superfly bolt. AND SP ion w/ 14'' freak, halo, pure energy 68 cu/3000 , CCM clamp no rise.
best 1 piece i say is DYE ultralite 16in or 14in and best kit is the SP freak 14 or 16
The paint doesn't break where it's suppost too.
Ive shot about 3 cases of this stuff. 2 in a bushmaster BKO with a dye UL and 1 case threw an Ion with a freak.
The cold made the paint chop. The paint has a pretty good amount of flat spots in it and on top of all that i opened a bag of 500 and poured them onto a towel (BRAND NEW) and there was a bench, chewed up paint shell in the bag. no, i didnt break one on accident, it didnt even have paint on it. it was a messed up shell.
These balls are pretty good, but if your barrel has a small boar if you get a ball bust you in trouble until you sqeegy it out. Also the fill is so incredably thick its like glue. its crazy, ohh and the blue is an awsome color, stands out big time.
Meh, if you are on a budget buy these instead of like zaps or something not worth buying

Its a very good rec paint, you could even you it for tournaments if your on a tight budget. I was getting it at my local shop for about 4 mouths. I bought 7 cases and they were all about the same, you can complain when you know exactly what your getting.The fill is decent enough the thickness was good hard to wipe thou the colors don't stand out well would like to see more bright neon colors except white or dark blue. This paint is round with no dimples so you won't get very many barrel breaks if you size your bore rather big. The paint has a huge range in size. I was getting role outs with a .684 and paint breaking because it was to tight in a .689 that's really really bad for all of you out there with 200 dollar barrel kits that supposed to cope with this problem. Its brittle in a sense, it wont mush around or conform to your barrel and if you try to get it to bend it will crack. It is very hard wet paint so you get decent accuracy but its hard to shoot this paint clean.
Good cheap paint for rec ball, you know what your getting with this stuff after you try it once take in all the pros and cons for yourself and decide if it will work for you need it to do. 9 as a rec paint 6 as a tourny paint so I'll round up to 8
8 out of 10

shootem throu whatever,if they get in the barrel there ok.
Bright color thick fill ,mine were orange,good marking.
Out of round,badly to many chops will not shoot throu breaks.
My 98 is a really nice piece ,it seems to be really easy on paint .Up until these balls that is.I have gotten barrel breaks before but at least the paint made it in the barrel.Inked are the first balls i have ever chopped.I do have a gravity hopper,um but i am really not that fast on the trigger.I play only woods ball and target practice.I bought these on line, price seemed fair .I bought two cases,when i first looked at them i thought ,nice color good shell but they aint round! When they shot they were as good as any cheap paint good flight good mark, but when they chopped the thick gooey paint would ruin the rest of the balls in the hopper.I dumped two hoppers cause of chops.But the worst part is cleaning up the mess, no shooting till the thick paint is all out.If you own a 98 you know the worst part about it is opening it up for cleaning .I prefer to clean it on my schedule and not because of bad paint.
Inknd seem too be new i would give archon more time to get them rite.
pmi super swurl
blue streak SUCKS!
04 Black wgp cocker
16 cp .689 barrel
and some to sell for a shocker
14 or 16 inch i like
White works great in my e-2 cocker
fits really great in my cp barrel
Really none great paintballs
Just i found them on the internet for 35 and i bought them at my local field for 50 kinda a rip off.
yeah when i used it in my e-blade 2 cocker it worked great it was unbelieveable its a really great rec, pr even tourny paint but some times it can be hard so make sure to check your paint.
