You name it I've probably put a few of them down range.
When I used this paint...
-Stiffi Barrel .691
-Bushnell Trophy Red Dot optic to test accuracy
I only shot them through my Stiffi.
It is very cheap paint and performs well for the cost.
It is by no means anywhere near the best paint out there.
First things first this is a cheap paint. Don't expect this to be the best paint in the world. It is what it is. It's really good paint for the price. While playing there was nothing the paint did that messed up my game.
After playing with this paint for the day I took what paint I had left home and the next day went to my private field behind my house, put my optic on my A5, and started testing it for consistancy and accuracy. At 20 yards for the most part I was putting each ball right on top of the previous one. At 30 yards I was still shooting a 6 inch pattern with a random ball here and there spinning off into maybe a 12 inch pattern (I'm assuming those were the dimpled ones). Out to 50 yards I could still expect to hit a soda can with a 5 round burst.
Everyone blames the paint when they don't hit their mark but by having a red dot site on your marker you can really see exactly how inaccurate you yourself can be by watching that dot wave back and forth over your target.
Any marksman knows there are many factors into shooting accuractly not just your projectile.
This paint gets a 10/10 for cheap paint but because it is a cheap paint and it's performance isn't as good as more expensive paint I'm giving it an 8/10.

Overbore for sure
Many blemishes, dimples
Poor fill color
Well for $44/case this may have been the worse purschase of paintballs I have ever made. We bought the case as the entry level paint at a local field. The box was undamaged and the paintballs were nicely packaged in sealed bags. There were no ball breaks in the bags, so the handling and packaging were good. However, that is were the good stops. First the paintballs were not uniform in diameter. A few were significantly smaller. It seemed that at least 1 in 10 paintballs were dimpled. One paintball had three dimples on it!
The brown shell seemed ok. It was certainly less brittle than Marbs etc, but it broke in good contact. We didn't get a barrel break or break in the hopper all day.
However the fill was very poor. It was chalky white that you couldn't really see from the other side of the field. So you never really knew if you go someone out. Also I was wearing a black and gray Dye jersey and I could barely see the fill on myself!
If given a choice I would not use Origin Combat Basic Training again. All of the other paintballs I have ever used have been better quality for less money than these.
If you have another choice in this price range-take it. These are not a very good value.

Dangerous Power F8 blue/clear
nothing cause balls stink
Fill is impossible to see on someone
These are probaly becoming the most popular feild paint now of days. Thats because they are cheap, but they dont work. The fill looks like snot and ive been shot before felt the paint but couldn't see it. It hurts to get shot by these because they dont break they just bounce. And since they dont break you get shot 20 times until one finally break on you
dont buy these just pay the extra $10 dollars and get the premium it will be more fun for EVERYONE!

Draxxus Rec-Sport. The Rec-Sport is much better suited for speedball or light woodlands where you're not shooting people behind foliage. Basically any field where you can position yourself to have a clean shot at somebody, is a bad field to use Basic Training paintballs on.
Tippmann 98 Custom Pro (Stock everything) w/Crossfire 68/45 tank.
Highly recommend the flatline. These paintballs are so small that the flatline can put a ridiculous amount of backspin on these babys. Somebody with an X-7 was shooting so far with his flatline that they went over the nets on the opposite end of the field and were landing half way into the neighboring X-Ball field. These were full tournament size fields. I've never seen a paintball shoot that far. Lobbing distance is just ridiculous with a flatline, but you aren't going to hit anything at that distance, let alone get a break at that distance. Though some people were a little worried about safety, accidentally shooting over nets = bad.
They're really hard paintballs. Shoot through grass, bushes, leaves, twigs, etc.
Hurt a lot.
Lots of bounces.
They hurt like hell when you get hit by one, but the great thing about hard paintballs is that you can shoot people through foliage. It makes woodsball games a lot more fun when you can jump behind a bunch of thick grass or a bush and with a few shots, you'll have made yourself a nice little hole in your cover to shoot through.
If you run low on air, you're totally screwed. These paintballs will not break at less than 250 fps, with a target at 30 feet.
These paintballs will tear right through any grass, twigs and bushes as if they were paper. Recommend padding or a 20 foot no shooting rule when in use. They will cut into uncovered flesh at close ranges, breaks sharp. Recommend 280-290 fps and used in heavy woodlands where most people are under foliage, most of the time.. For the price, they deserve a good rating. They do what they were made to do, play great in thick woodland. I don't recommend that they're used anywhere else.

I paintballed for the first time this week. I played two days and the first day was great. I used some paintballs (unknown brand) but they were nice and accurate and broke every time. I had a few of those left on my second day and so my hopper was mixed with the Origin Basic Training (green fill) and the unknown brand (pink fill).
Every splatter that was straight on target was pink... everything that pulled left and right was green. Enough said.
I'm not an experienced player, but I noticed that the balls were slightly smaller than my first bag-o-balls. They might work in some other markers, but in my alpha black they sucked. I wasted more paint than I wanted to simply because I couldn't hit a guy in the back when he was standing still from 40 feet away. I'm not a good aim...but I'm better than that. At the end of the day most of us were going on the honor system if we got hit because half of them wouldn't break... we made someone bleed though... that was cool I guess.
Great for stepping on when you throw them in the dirt out of frustration... otherwise don't bother.
i go out and play with my friends once every 2 weaks so were just having fun. the balls dont break all the time but i like that cus when the ball doesnt break it hurts liek hell also the paint is really think so its annoying.The fill smells horrible aswell
Wouldnt use the paint if i were in a tourney but i highly recomend it if yur playing in your backyard.

.689 or smaller. You REALLY should go smaller
fill (nice and thick)
Shell (see review)
OK well this paint is ok. Compared to other stuff though, it kinda sucks. But you can get it for cheap and it does shoot so why not. But it is really small, so the smallest bore size you can find would probably be best. Now the shell is not the best, actually it is kinda really bad. Not quite Monster ball bad, but bad. It is really hard, kind of like ... cement hard. thats a good word for it.
If you got the money, then dont get this stuff. Get the next best one your proshop sells, it is probably ten times better than this for a few bucks more.
A5 with RT, 14"JT barrel, polished internals, HPA, double trigger.
14"JT barrel .68
Cheap(33$/case).Good thickness.Good viscosity.Washes out easy
Funky Color. Random egg shaped balls. Dries like wax.
I have used these balls on and off for the last year, and all in all I am satisfied with them. They have been very consistent with their performance. Of course they are not marbs, or anything DIABLO, but for 33 bucks a case you really cant go wrong. Very rarely will i find seems on these balls. I have NEVER had one of these break in my marker. EVER! I will have the occasional ball that hooks like a boomerang, but they are typically when im shooting at weird angles or something. I have only used them for speedball, no scenario, or woodsball, and thats mostly what i play, so i dont know how they perform in the sticks.
Use em. They're dirt cheap, and a pretty solid performer.
Better than rocks
BTW: If it doesnt break KEEP SHOOTING :)
