These are about as bad as Wild streak, or super swirl paintballs. Yes they are cheap, but they break more than usual,they don't shoot straight. They are not reliable. The fill is runny. Not real bright fill. Besides the price there isn't anything really good about these. Do not expect to shoot anyone with these. Unless you want to shoot around corners and bunkers. But that will not improve your game. Remember you get what you pay for.
If I only could buy these paintballs, I would give up paintball.
Never bust in barrel and are cheap.8$ for 500 balls
Sometimes don't bust
They are the second best i have ever used.They come in colors like green ,pink, orange,and yellow.The green ones are best for woods ball because they blend in so good.The boxes they come in are handy.Don't get the one that have a little cut in the box because that means that there is a bust.
Sypder Imagine with rehoned stock barrel, polished internals, beveled stock bolt and Zap agitating hopper
Haven't tested any other
Fit my barrel
I got a box of 500 of these from Academy when I got my marker just to be able to go shoot a bit in the back yard. With the stock barrel, I was getting 2-3 foot groups with lots of hooks from 40 feet. I ddn't chop any balls on semi mode, but when I cranked the Spyder's Etrigger I rarely was able to shoot more than 10 balls before spraying one. After that, 4 out of 5 broke in the barrel until I cleaned it out. After I rehoned my barrel my groups shrunk to 6-8 inches, with very few flyers but the chops and breaks remained.
This stuff had me convinced that I was going to have to buy an anti chop bolt just to be able to use the auto mode on my Imagine. Turns out, it's just the cheap paint I was using.
The Dusk paint is way better in my opinion and I wil post a review on it once I've used it more. At this point, I have been able to shoot about half a hopper of it on auto without breaking any balls, even with the bolt kicking some of them back up the feed neck. It also is a little more accurate, with overall group sizes staying the same as the Triax but no hooks to speak of.
Tip- to greatly improve a stock barrel, wrap some jute string around the end of a wooden dowel rod to make a cylinder about three inches long and almost too big to go in your barrel. Saturate it with brass or aluminum polish, then work it in and out of the barrel while twisting it. Keep going until you can't see the tooling marks anymore.
Bottom line- this is not bad stuff if you shoot slow at short distances or need some practice paint. But if the game matters, get something more reliable.
I gave it a seven because price is a consideration. I think it is good quality for the price, but still cannot reccomend it because it made my gun unreliable because of the breaks.
coustom made drop forward
92/4500 crossfire tank
anything with out rifleing
No bounces brake every time
Few barrel brakes
I got these from my academy about 1 month old (lot of paintballers so there paint is fresher than most) They shot ok but I think they are the worst of the paint I'v used. Zap exstrem sport is better imo. Don't worry about sizing the paint it's not round enough to matter anyway. I never got a bounce off bunker or person. My accracy was so bad I had to be ether close or shoot a lot, but it was not curve behind a bunker bad just miss your head bad.
I would proably not buy this any more. Ok paint don't expect much.
imagine select 14in. teardrop(black)front block off silver bullet-chrome-32* 6 stage expansion chamber-cp flame drop acs aluminum bolt 32* spring kit esp frame with 50g switch and custom trigger 12 volt revvy with x board
teardrop works great
fit teardrop well
easy to get
Kinda hard shelled
Decent paint, well actually good paint for what you pay i got it on sale at Academy for 6 bucks a for 500. There kind of hard to find because the come in a plain brown box but that dosnt really bother me. Much better than zapp and brass eagle paint that you can get for the same price.

They are cheap, and are great shot for one's slingshot.
They break very, very, very easily in your barrel.
I got these when I first started playing and didn't know much about paintball. I saw them in the store on sale for $20, and thought "Wow! that's a good deal." Wrong! At that time I was using my Spyder Xtra stock barrel with them, and I could count on cleaning my barrel every few shots. After I learned how to match paint to barrel I tried them and the majority of the balls were so big I had to push them out with cleaning rod. One of the friends I play got some, without consulting me first, and he went through about 500 and hasn't used them since. He has told me that he will never use these again as well. Either of us with ever endorse these paintballs ever again.
It is well worth the extra $10 to get the Torks and not have to worry about breaking paintballs.
They are cheap, and you can tell buy the amount of cleaning you will have to do. I would give it zero, but that's not an option.
Modified Spyder Victor, 20 oz Java CO2, JT 14" one piece barrel, and Mach 404 electric hopper.
Any barrel these things wont break in any of the ones that I have used.
Price ($8 for 500)
Won't break in barrel
Break on impact every time
None so far
These things are awsome. And its not just me that thinks this. Everyone that has used them thinks that they are great. When I got these I really needed some paintballs and these were the cheapest they had ($8 for 500) which nothing else could beat so I just got them and I wasn't to sure but when I used the first one thousand they were awsome and broke on every hit that I got and I mean no bounces and its been the same every other time. They break every time and so far out of 6000 or more of these things not one has broken in my or anyone elses barrel.
Go get these paintballs. You may have never heard of them but for the price and performance they are well worth it.
