This is Draxxus paint that has been mismanufactured, IE the wrong fill color in the wrong shell, wrong shell color combinations (in multicolor shelled balls) and is otherwise perfectly fine. This is a mix of brands like Hellfire, Dusk, Scorch, Inferno etc. Because of the mix of brands there is less consistency in speeds at the chrono and accuracy.
The DraXxuS Rainbow Paintballs are newer, so they should be commonly available.
Spyder Imagine w/J&J S2 14", Evo II z-board, T-Board with eyes and 18-gram switch.
I like my X-cel barrel, my J&J works well with these, not as well as the X-cel but the J&J works better in other ways. My Impy's Progressive likes these and my Phantom's stock barrel even likes them.
CHEAP! They're CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP and worth every penny and then some!
So I picked these up to just try them out, the product description sounded too good to be true but they really are good paintballs with mostly just a slightly different color, usually not as vibrant as their top shelf compatriots. They were reasonably consistent, much more so than anything you'd regularly find for $45, and these are $30! I guess the weaknesses would be that A) The colors are all over the place, you'll be shooting every color if you don't pre-sort and that B) some of the balls are the high-end balls and if you have a real cheap marker with co2 and no expansion chamber I'd expect a few breaks from the bolt and c02 striking the brittle ball that's too good for your marker.
Edit: After using several more boxes (more than 2 since the review boxes) I stand by this review. This is a 10 for the price. For "white-box" paint, you can't beat it. I shoot Ultra Evil most of the time but I still don't frown on these rainbow boxes.
Word, buy these for target shooting and practice at least. I'd still take a box of this to the field in case I run out of my Evil/X-Ball Gold. I think it's always a good idea to have extra paint and the cost-benefit ratio on this paint is incredible!
10 out of 10

other white box- this is better
draxxus rec- about the same
x-ball bronze , marbs, proball, karnage and evil, a bit better but not very noticeable.
halo b, crossfire tank, sidewinder reg, cp .693 barrel, ccm feedneck, cp direct mount
Something at least .689 if not more.
Cheap, doesnt chop, accurate, breaks fairly well.
Semi-inconsistent bore sizes.
I went to my local proshop looking for some cheap paint and i bought this. 60 collars for 2 cases is a great deal but i was unsure about how it would shoot. 2 days later i went to the field and I started playing, it shot accurately and broke on target most of the time.
I had forgotten my barrel at home and borrowed someones .689 barrel. I had no breaks with it so maybe the sizes weren't that inconsistent.
I will definitely buy some again when i need more paint.
Great buy for 30 dollars a case. wouldn't use in any competitive games but perfect for rec-ball or practice

Shoots horribly, bleeds
This paint is terrible. Its innacurate, inconsistent bc of the variety of balls used, and bleeds all over pods and hoppers. I could not find a single broken ball, but on 3 seperate occasions there was paint all over my pods, ruining the paintballs, and there was bad bleed in several of the shop owners bags so bad that he couldnt sell them
Only buy this product if you don't have enough money to buy anything higher end
Large bore size and maybe self cleaning one to if you hate using a squeege during a game
Price and mostly bright fill
Different bore size not all the paintballs break on enemy
I bought these paintball for mostly woodsball and to practice. The price of these paitnballs are some of the cheapest too. Mostly all the balls broke on impact but you"ll get a few that won't brake. It doesn't matter. Some may break in your barrel but it is not a lot. It's also pretty cool seeing the player you shot in all defferent colors. HA! HA! =O
Overall these balls are great for recball and practice and a great price. The only thing that I didn't like was the paintballs were all different sizes
Karni with e2 frame.
a large bore barrel. See review
overall good quality
Can't really size up the paint.
Well I recently purchased this paint for cheap from firstcallpaintball. Overall it's an excellent paint for the price. Only downside is there are different sized balls so I couldn't size them with my freak so I just went with the .693 insert. For the most part paint shot accuratly and broke on target. I did experience a couple barrel breaks and some bounces but for the price I expected that and to be honest I expected alot worse. It's also fun shooting someone a few times and having different colors on them. For the price I will definetly buy these again for rec play and practice.
It's cheap and shot good. Just don't expect hellfire or ultra evil quality. And make sure you have a large bore cause with a small bore barrel you will probably expereince alot of barrel breaks. Gave it a 9 cause I was pleased with it for the price.
