Fairly accurate when aimed at my crotch
Extremely tough shell can injure you and your friends. Don't use this stuff.
I've been in the sport for over 10 years and never have I been bruised so badly from a paintball that I am still not fully healed after 3 weeks. I rarely even bruise when I get hit, but this stuff is an exception.
Brass Eagle paint use to be fairly thin shelled, stale, and would not hold shape after sitting in the box for a while. Well, they solved the problem. The new shell is so rubbery and tough that even a fresh batch will bounce off trees. The guy who lit me up with these was taking bark off of an old oak tree when he shot at it.
I did not have one speck of paint on me after getting hit 3 times, right dead center in the waist and 2 on my right thigh. I called myself out because I don't normally feel that much pain when getting hit, even repeatedly. I get home and take off my pants, and basketball shorts to find I had bled through my tighty whiteys. 2 nice big bruises with rings of torn skin around them. This is not ok. I have been shot by re-usable balls before and they don't hurt nearly as bad.
If you care about your friends safety, do not shoot this paint. If you must buy paint at Walmart, buy anything else. Visual Impact, super swirl, big ball, I don't care. The moment you decide to shoot paintballs at friends that are DESIGNED to never get brittle when sitting on a store shelf, you are accepting the fact that your friend could get hurt. I will be thinking twice before I go and play with the same group of guys again because about half of them use this paint.
I am not lying when I tell you I would use white box paint, or paintball seconds instead Mosterball. Go to any online retailer and please...please buy some cheap white box paint instead of monsterball.
These are very dented and inefficient paintballs. they are cheap, but you can get much better quality paintballs for a similar price. The colors are not bright and they stain clothing. They curve in ways that almost defy the laws of physics. They are only good if you have a low budget and are playing in close quarters.
Don't buy them unless you aren't using them for paintball.
Honestly for 30$ your not going to find a better paint, my team pitched in and we bought our own field is this is all we shoot, its accurate, its cheap and the fill is bright, some times you will get a few bad balls its not quite as consistent as a tourney paint. but for 30$ its perfect. Everyone complains about it leaving bruises, lets be honest this is paint ball not figure skating your going to get bumps and bruises.
Buy it its cheap, paint balls should not cost 60$ a case. Ill give it a 9 just because some of the balls are not perfect. I think that its really dumb that fields ban this paint it has improved 100% scene it first came out.

etek 2 with virtue board
tippman A5, 98 custom
ion with virtue
Its a paintball
Not allowed anywhere
Ok i have seen many use them, and so i figured , heck its a walmart brand, cant hurt to save a few bucks for paint,
All fields i go to ban them because of a few problems,
-Stains bunkers if not cleaned right after busting on bunkers
-safety factor, the paint new redesign with a harder shell doesnt bust/break when hitting a person
this causes brusies and injuries.
I think this product is unsafe and shouldnt be used unless shooting at trees in your back yard, if that.
Breaks in barrel, breaks in gun, breaks when dropped.
I bought a container of these last weekend, I thought I would give them a try. When I was at teh paintball filed, the balls would keep breaking in my marker in the barrel and at the bolt. The temperature outside was in the 60's. Many times they would bounce off of the target, a couple bounced off of hard objects. There were several balls deformed in such a way that they would not fall down the feedneck. After 5 games of breaking a ball after 10 shots, I threw the whole tub out and purchased the field paint. Most balls have dimples.
Futhermore, My friend and I shot the rest of his from his bucket, and 70% of them did not break. We shot into a dirt/sand mound. I can't imagine what it would feel like to be hit by this paint.
DO NOT buy this paint, even if your gun has an eye, it will break.

Not really good quality paint
Weak spots after about 2 months
I have gotten 4000 of these balls, and they are good for the $30 asked. They are not very accurate, however, and I noticed that, on close inspection, there were many weak spots on the balls, about four of five balls had weak spots. One problem with these, is that they do not break very well, even with all the weak spots. Some fields have even banned these balls, and I heard that one guy was shooting his friend and they went through his friend's mask.
These are good balls for rec ball, but if you are going to a tournament, get something like Hotspot or any Nelson line

freak, dye ultralite, the best barrels (even then they suck)
Rubber shell (hard to break)
These are basically terrible. These were the first paintballs I got just cause they were cheapest. They don't break on target at all. My friend was reloading and he shot the ground from 2 inches away, and they didn't break! Also, they are highly inaccurate. I would recommend buying $35 paint, it's worth the extra $5, trust me.
Do not buy these! After you've paintballed for awhile you'll realize how bad they are. Pay the extra $5!

Doesnt matter these paintballs arent going to break in your barrel
They are cheap
They dont break!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They feel like getting hit with a rock!
well to start off i figured i was going to go play a harmless game of paintball with my friend at a local field (before the field started the "their paint or no play" rule) and my friend and i were using our favorite paintballs RPS Marballizers because we had just gotten them from our trusted paintball supplier. So after a few games of playing we started getting complaints of a player hitting people and not getting breaks then throwing a fit about it. After hearing this, my friend and I played against this player who i am going to called Player X and Player X hit my friend with these Monster Balls and there was no break on my friend later on in the game i was hit with no break and the guy was just complaining about how he clearly shot the both of us and then as they day wore on the last game we played my friend went up to the snake and Player X was on the back right he saw my friend and popped him in the head well not only did the ball not break on my friend but it actually almost knocked him clean out. The ref stopped the game and check on my friend who wasnt too happy and i walked up to Player X with the monster balls and asked to see a bag of his paint, well i had to buy it off of him obviously(only for 5 bucks) and i took the bag of paint to the refs and showed them that this paint is like hitting someone with a rock. now am i saying that Monster Ball should be banned and never used for anything? No i am only saying that maybe it should only be used to chronograph or back-yard test a gun, this paint should NEVER be shot at anyone. This paint can hurt people and yes i know that fields have the their paint rules but even while playing with your friends if you shoot this crap at anyone else you are risking injury.
This Paint is Crap! Never shoot it at anyone!

Dimpled, deformed, oblong, comes broken, break easily.
These balls plain out suck. shure they are cheap, but stay away from anything brass eagle. These balls are terrible, dimpled, oblong, break way too easily. Sure you can get 2000balls for 25 dollars but that is just a waist of 25 dollars. they will break in your loader, and jam up your barrel, especially if you have a cyclone fed paint gun. The only use for these terrible excuse for a paintball, is perhaps shooting out of a sling shot. The WILL, i repeat WILL jam up your gun and just waist your prescious time and money.
These balls just suck. Brass eagle has no quality control.
