similar? Diablo formula 13: almost as good better bore size for most, not quite as good in descending order Nelson Anarchy tourney grade paint about the same as most of the better ones overprioced, FRESH Allstars (very sensitive to age and weather),evil ok, but overpriced & overhyped, stuff like premiums... then a bunch of mid to low range stuff
an e2 orraccle w/ belsales ram & Eclipse QEV's supafly bolt, Redz on off, Freak kit, Nitro duck 90/3000 etc.
10 assorted cockers all upped. some listed below if you care.
2k3 body w/e2 and eclipse everything except Rat 3:16 valve and Killa detent, WGP unimount
Outkast w/ ticler & eclipse ram & old JAM bolt in delrin (exact same wieght as Orracle bolt)
Custom body cocker Mech w/ Orracle pneumatics (shoulda been eclipse/ belsales)+1 QEV (too lazy to thread back or buy better ram)
well, its been several months since I have been able to buy them so thing might have changed, but i would have to say a freak kit b/c mine were a good fit with the .679 insert for a few cases and then the .682 for one other.... most kits don't go that small.
Shot straighter than any other paint. Excellent quality. about $50
Very small bore for those who lack freak kits. Hard to find
I love these. they are my favorite paint bar none. they shoot very straight are round, all the same size (.679") don't deform if you keep some in your closet for a month or two.
(a couple left over of bags swelled to .682 after about 2 months, they were still perfect in all respects but my groupings were an inch or two larger)
break on target, not in your equipment (think all stars....) thick fill
If I told you the shot goupings I got with these consistantly, you would call me a liar, but I will anyway.... about 1.5 - 2" at around 100 feet. with a well tuned cocker with the proper insert.... much tighter groupings than anyone else on the field, even people with good equipment.
and for about $50 a box vs $65 and up for other paint which is not as good.
I should mention that I am a guy who is both stingy and picky. that means I am usually dissapointed. Not so with this. with this paint the only thing hampering my game is my lack of skill, not curves.
If you have a very small barrel buy it. Otherwise buy formula 13, which lately has been .688-.689 and is easier to find, and is nearly as good.
This, that and the other thing
A5, Flatline, Egrip, Remote line
This paint went thru the A5 and 98C flatline barrels just fine
Reasonably thick fill
Broke properly on impact
Didn't break in the barrel(s)
This was the field paint where we played recently. Cost was $60 per case of 2k three of us burned 1.5 cases. I bought another case at a local shop and we used that 1500 over the course of two more games a few weeks later. one case was silver/white w/ white fill, the other two were silver/pink w/ pink fill. Both ran equally well through our flatline barrels. If we had more than 3 bbl breaks out of 6K rounds I would be surprised. the rounds were round and uniform w/ a reasonably small ridge at the seam. Accuracy was reasonable, but I would rate RPS Premiums as better and Marballizers as significantly better. I do not know how these hold up over time / storage. What we used was fresh. The fill was reasonably thick ; the white seems somewhat thinner than the pink but still marks acceptably. I thought $60 was overpriced and still do; $50 or less is reasonable. But if this is the field paint available, as it was for us, it will do the job. I would rate these as a bit better than RPS Super Swirls, but not as good as RPS Premiums (accuracy is not quite as good and the fill, while acceptable is a bit thinner)
If you can get them fresh and cheap they are a good buy.
Tippman 98 custom with nitro/high pressure system gauge and teardrop barrell
They spatter good
I use these when i go to my local fieald and i love It they have bight painttballs that refs can see and they are accurate. I used a tippman carbine and it was shooting fine and had little curve but you cant really tell. They also are pretty cheap, at shops i can get a box of 2000 rds for 50 $
This is a great paintball and i recommend it to all to use at field and great to play with your friends

Super Swirl, tork, monster ball, worr paint domination, diablo, dusk.
Game Face Vexor Eye-
VL Viewloader gravity hopper(works good), 47ci 3000 psi hpa tank.
Perfecct round shape
Price a little high but worth every penny
This is great paint it is the best paint I have used.
The shape is almost perfectly round.
The seam is just as smooth as the rest of the ball.
I had no breaks in my barell with this paint, only had the opportunity to use 1000 rounds.
I have shot many types of paint and this has to be the best performing paint that I have used. I dont believe I will buy any other type of paint unless I change my barell setup.
Great paint in my stock barrel vexor eye. Purchasing this paint you will not be disappointed.
The Apex worked good, same with j&j ceramic S2...Tippmann and the twister barrel also had no problems.
Great fill, the shell color was cool too.
The only reason I used Origins was because my local field (and by local I mean like an hours drive...) didn't carry Polar Ice anymore. The man there though said that these were much better. So I reluctantly bought a bag, and to my suprise, I did not have a single break all day! The only ones that broke were some polar ice I had left over from last time, so as far as I can tell they are as good if not better than Polar Ice. The fill is hard to wipe, being sludge like instead of most having a watery fill. My friends who had barrels other than the apex, also bought Origins. None of them had any problems at all.
This is great paint for winter play, I have no idea about temperatures above 50, but below, they are great. I highly recommend them, and they are fairly priced....except at Hogan's Alley...cause they are bad...
Origin Max'd-good practice but prefer Origin Classic
Draxxus Midnight-not as good as Classic
Smartparts Ion, w/ Freak barrel kit, 14" and 16" All-American tips, Maxflo reg, QEv, CP trigger, CCM feedneck, both Viewloader eVolution2 and Vlocity.
I have shot Classics thru .684, .687, .693. The .693 worked the best. Don't have the .691, though I suspect that might be the best match.
Excellent round shape, predictable flight, good fill, great breakage.
I have shot about 6 cases of this stuff and it is by far my favorite. These are essentially the same as Draxxus Blaze, same manufacturer. Very impressed with these.
Bright fill, makes hits easy to see from a distance. Not easily wiped.
The distinctive color also makes it easy to tell who you hit once the game is over.
I had very few balls bounce off their targets. The paint broke consistently when other brands were bouncing.
The balls flew straight and true. I can't remember one slicing or hooking at all really. I felt I was making shots I had't been able to with some of the other paint I have used. I broke one ball in the entire time I have used these and I don't know if it was a chop or a bad ball. My local shop is actually out of these right now, so I am hoping their next shipment comes in soon. Origin Classics are the best median betw/ price and quality.
Definitely worth it, should bore sized for larger barrels.
Black/Pink fade X-Mag, VL Evolution 2, 72/4500 Pure Energy tank
CP one piece
Soming with a bore of .684
Brittle, breaks on contact, good cold weather
VERY Brittle, kind of small bore, fills not great.
This was the last tourny paint I used a few days ago. In my X-Mag, I have a profesionally tuned Level 10, where I can easily put my finger in there and barely feel a thing, and I have eyes, so needless to say, I havnt chopped after putting around 10 cases through it including top level tourny paint to cheap and old crap paint, but after I put this stuff in my hopper, I had problems from the get go. Firstly, the eyes in my gun could not see this paint, on either setting. I have never had that problem even with black paint, or clear paint, so I had to go without my eyes on. I first off had an Empire barrel kit with a .684 back that fit the paint well. After 5 shots, I broke one in the barrel. So I swapped over to my CP one piece barrel. I was good for a game or two, and another break. So I take the barrel and breach off and lo & behold, I have a paint covered bolt. I couldnt believe it, I had never chopped with my X-mag before, even when I tried with a VL200 and old paint, and I just could not chop, but here I was with a VL Evo 2 and I had paint all over my bolt.
This isnt wondeful paint. I have used worse though. But I would never use this stuff again.
WGP Practice Paint, Scorch, Super Swirl, Monster Balls
20oz Pure Energy Co2
14" J&J Ceramic barrel
Very round, extremely nice fill.
I can't think of any.
I bought a 500rd bag of these from a guy at my local field, and these are probably the best balls I've ever shot. Almost always perfectly round, and the nicest fill I've ever seen.
I can hit a 8" wide pole from 100' away 8 out of ten times with this paint, and that's with my stock barrel. I ran out of these before I could test them in my J&J Ceramic.
