The all-new line of JT Tactical Paint Ammo is available in two grades and colors. Woodland paint ammo features an olive drab shell with field grade yellow fill. The Jungle Camo paint ammo features a custom tri-colored jungle shell with mid grade thick yellow fill for excellent markability. JT Tactical paint ammo is accuracy tested to meet the demands of every scenario player and is packaged in three convenient quantities to satisfy every scenario need: 500, 1000 and 2000 round ammo boxes.
The JT Tactical Paintballs are newer, so they should be commonly available.
This is a review for the Jungle Camo version, i will buy 500 woodlands later on & update my review.
I purchased these because, well, im a hard-core woodsballer. the idea of camo struck me as awesome, & when i showed them to my friends & parents they thought it was a great idea. the best part is that the enemy cannot "track" or locate the shooter because the paintball is almost impossible to see (especially in heavily wooded areas & brush). they have a hard, but not too hard shell, & the fill is very thick, similar to a thick school paste. price is good, 11.95 for a quarter-case & 22.50 for a half-case.
The bad, well, they are almost always low or out of stock at the 8 wal-marts i go to, they might have 1 or 2 quarter cases, & if im REALLY lucky, a full case or a half-case. another thing, these things chop at high rates of fire. i was using a gravity-fed feeder though, a powerfeed might help remedy that.
If youre a woodsballer, buy a quarter-case & try them out.

you look stupid using them!
The fill doesn't show up well at all, after all, it blends in with the trees! I've seen about 20 ball breaks in the barrel withing 200 shots, and about 100 breaks in the air. Gross fill that doesn't show up on you. the ball hits you, and only drips a little paint that cn hardly be seen. If you show up ready to play with these, be ready to be called a retard! Never in your life get these. If you want to practice, you need paint that will get you in good shape for playing. It curves and pops randomly, so this will not help you practice at all. Never buy it! get engange or xball or if you want to practice, dbx!
this paint is BY FAR the worst i have ever used. don't even bother. get something descent. paintball is a game that requires some investments sometimes. so make the investment and get good paint. Monster balls suck as well. don't waste your time on stuff from walmart. get real paint. online is the best place for the cheapist prices
I only tested these paintballs and let me tell you never again. These paintballs don't bust and that hurt like a !#$#! when hit with them. Also when you shoot them you can't see them and when they do hit something you cant see the fill either. So if you're evil and sadistic and like to hurt people this is the paint for you.
This is horrible paint and if you wanna keep friends I would advise you buy something different.

Can't see the ball coming at you
Generally doesn't break in your barrel
Generally doesn't break on your target
Not very thick paint, hard to track also
Well these paintballs aren't that great. I mean I bought these paintballs at Wal-Mart the night before a Woods game. I think that the biggest problem with these paintballs is that they don't break. The only reason why guys got called out when I shot them was because I hit them so many times that they just quit. None of them broke.
You might as well just take a hammer, smash the paintball, take the paint, rub it on your hands, then wipe it on the opponent. That's the only way you are going to get paint on the opponent with these paintballs
Stock Tippmann Model 98
Stock Kingman Spyder MR1
20 oz. CO2 Tank
Breaks Pretty Easily
Opponents Cannot See them
Does not smell bad
You cannot see them
Very dull fill
Tippmann Model 98-Chopped ALOT. I could not believe how much I was chopping. a lot of them curved horribly. This is a stock model 98 though so what do you expect. I did get NO kills with this paint while using the Tippmann.
MR1-PERFECT fit. Shot perfectly with no chops at all. I was amazed with the difference in the performance with the switch between markers. Very impressed while using it with the MR1. The MR1 was stock also.
I cannot believe the change that there was between the guns. I guess the Tippmann may have just not liked this paint. I still recomend you try it just to see if you have the same performance that I did with the MR1. I guess this is OKAY paint.
Marballizers > better than the Tacticals
Premiums > still better but not by as much as the marbys
Rampage > about the same if not better than rampage
All Stars > close but still not as good
Higher grade stuff but all cost more...
-Tippmann A-5 with R/T
-Lapco Bigshot - 14" Bead Blasted
-Stock with RVA
dunno, worked fine in mine, its a bigger bore.
Cheap, Hard as hell, woodland colour.
Hard to track your shots, damn hard Doesnt break so well. Fill?
The field that I play at recently got these in just for to see what they are like. Usually they have pretty high end stuff and they were thinking of downgrading the paint because its just rec-ball played there.
The first thing I noticed was that these are damn near unsquishable in comparison to the likes of premiums and allstars. The bonus of this is much less likelyhood of them breaking in your hopper. But however the downside is that they dont break as easily and that means less likely to get a hit on the target. As for tracking the green-ness of them can make them much harder to track when aiming, which can be a right pain in the ass. But then again other people may not be able to track the source of those rounds so easily so that can be an upside
The other thing I found was that the fill doesnt mark as well as some of the other paints which is also annoying.
Overall for basic rec-ball games they do the job, if you are playing tournaments or just wanting that bit better accuraccy and reliability of breakage then might be better to get higher grade.
Accurate, hard to trace, cheap, doesn't break in marker
A few had dimples, didn't always break on target
Ok im noob but ive had experience with a few different brands of paintballs and these are by far the best. At 70 meters shooting at a plywood icehouse 7 out of 1000 bounced with my blade 02 and my cousins tipman 98 custom. Very few had dimples and none in the box were broken, and not one broke in my marker. I would recommend these to anyone looking for cheap woods ball paint or to just practice or mess around with. Although id recomend finding something a little more brittle for tournement play although thEse would probably work.

can't see where the shot came from in woodsball
shell is a little harder then I like
I read a number of reviews on this site when I was looking for good paint and a low price. One of the biggest issues that I've had is people spotting my pods in the woods because of the BRIGHT color shells. That's not an issue with this balls. Now one thing that I did have an issue with is the fact that the shells are a little hard, I did have a few bounce off some people...but only maybe 6 out of 2000 rounds Keep in mind, that's only .03%. I'm not going to argue with numbers like that.
The only other issue that I had is the fill is a little light...I did see oen person easily whip my mark of them during a game.
If you are looking for a nice cheap box of paint, these are good. Great for woodsball. The hard shell is a good and bad thing....it won't break as easily on brush or branchs, but it may have the same issue on people as well. You may have to up your PSI and mantain it at about 300fps.
XBall bronze and silver
Tippmann 98 custom with:
Smart Parts Progresive 16"
Tapco T6 butt stock
Cyclone feed system
Low profile Butler Creek cap(realy a scope cap)
Smart parts progresive 16"
It is cheap and it is yellow
The shell is thick
Ok I have used alot of paintballs out of a progresive and here is what I think of them.
XBall I could not afford but it shot straight for abou 100 feet.
Wrek was cheap but it did not always shoot straight,
Scorch,Zap,and Bigball was a piece of crap.
Hotbox was too much and it didn't allways shoot straight.
JT Tactical always shot straight and I knew when I hit something.
This paint is ok but if you can offord XBall then get it.
