They were round.
Shell is way too brittle, fill is very thin and easily wipable.
I was playing at a local field this past weekend and you were required to use field paint there. the price was high, $80 a case, which initially sucked, but it did not bother so much when i initially saw the product. it looked very round, seemed like it had a good shell and i was rather excited to try it out. once i went out onto the field the nightmare began. nearly every ball i fired broke in my marker. round after round, they would keep breaking and i would keep squeeging. it got so bad in one game, my marker completly jammed. thinking it may have been my marker, i field stripped it, cleaned it and put it back together. i fired off some other paint in the chrono area and everything seemed ok. i went back onto the field and the same thing happened. i caked two squeeges in four hours. unbelievable frustration began to set in. my brother, who was playing with me and also has a spyder, said he had a few breaks at first, but once he got into his second case of paint he ran into the same problems. constant breakage. i asked around to a few of my friends who were playing with rental markers and they broke a few balls too. i began reading the reviews here and found my pain was felt alone. i also found this is also supposed to be a tournament grade paint and must say the fill very thin and easily wipable. all i have to say is that i wouldn't play for money with this paint, i have been playing for 15 years and it is the worst i have ever used.
I had high hopes for this product and think it is too unpredictable to play with. the fill is thin and easily wipable. the shell and seem are too brittle. if this your only option on field paint play somewhere else, unless you like russian roulette.
Midnight-The same as this paint, but had a bad fill.
Marbs-Better, but not by much
Uhm, if I knew the size of the red detent ring in my Phantom, that's about the size of this paint, give or take .001.
Breaks on target
Smells like a carrot? Good thing I'm not getting shot.
Alright, if you read the similar products section in my review, you will see I haven't had a good history of picking good paint. It's always been too small, oily, sucky fill, too hard of a shell, or too inconsistently sized, and for the price I was paying for those paints I was getting angry. So since I buy paint in bags, not cases as that would be a waste for me, my shop had Heat or this. I didn't like Heat, so I took a risk buying this. I'm glad I took this risk. It breaks, a lot. Not in the gun, or the barrel, but on the target. It's accurate, although almost anything is accurate in my gun. It cured my inconsistency problems I was having. The fill is bright orange, and pretty thick, but smells like a carrot which is disgusting, good thing I'm not getting shot by it. It's fairly cheap at my shop too for $16 a bag of it.
Need a cheap good paintball? Get this! I'm done dealing with DXS and Diablo's crap, they have failed to deliver, I am never looking back after this.
Well I used my stock .693 eclipse shaft barrel. The balls seemed to be a little bit smaller then my barrel. Just paint to bore match and your set.
Price. $40 is nice!
No dimples AT ALL.
Bright thick fill.
None. This paint shot great all day.
I bought a case of it one day. I had never heard anything about the paint and wanted to test something new out. I bought the case and opened the box and the paint looked great! Opened a bag and there were no dimples at all. The shell was nice and thin. Thick bright fill. I was very pleased. It shoot amazing through my ego all day long. No chops or anything. Flew straight as a arrow.
Empire really has out done themselves here. For $40, these paintballs simply can not be beat! I am going to buy these over x-ball bronze and save the $5 from now on. Great paint and if you can find some near you I definatly recomened picking up some and testing it out! Please rate this if I helped you.
Tippmann 98 custom ACT
16" 32 degrees night stick barrel
not sure only used the 16" night stick and it worked well
broke at a distance
2 Breaks out of 1000
I bought it at the field i played at (Splat Tag in Hudson WI) for $50 a case. Me and 2 friends shared 2 cases, about 1000 each. In that i had 1 mabey 2 barrel breaks (2nd due to the first one's residue). It was fairly accurate with my barrel. i could hit a 4" tree at 150' after the second shot then repeatedly after that.
Overall i thought it was very good compared to the other pain i have used (which isn't saying much since it is all "walmart paint") I would recommend it i believe it is worth the $50 a case which i thought was reasonable for field paint. Because i am cheap it would have been nice if it was cheaper, but the real reason was the 1/2 breaks which i thought was an acceptable amount but could hurt you if it was the one shot you counted on. really deserves a 9.75
Bright fill/ colors
break on impact
They tend to get dimples after a while, but doesn't all paint?
My team went to a local feild for team practice. This was the only paint being offered. It was about 60$ a case which is a little expensive, but when is paint not expensive? This paint had a nice bright fill, which was good because it showed up well on peoples jeresys.
These paintballs flew strait, and nice. I was shooting ropes all day.
I only had one break, which was my guns fault. I was really low on air.
By then end of the day they started to get dimples but they still shot great.
These are pretty good paintballs, i recommend these to anyone who wants to shoot strait, nice ropes all day long.
2k5 timmy, halo with rip, 68/45 crossfire tank, empire react pants, dye c5 jersey, dye i3 blue goggles
um, i used a timmy barrel which overall worked out pretty well. accurate was the key
Not that expensive
Broke well close range
Don't break well of breaks
White paint so not always easy to see
This paint overall was a pretty good paint. This isn't the kind first timers should be using. It is about at an amateur to rookie paint. The first time i used it was for a science project and it concluded that it was accurate, didn't splat too well far away, but it did well up close so forwards might want to take note of that.
I would say use this at a half-way experienced tournament or when you are proving yourself to friends,other than that, it would be wasting money
Xball, RPS, 32 degrees, Walmart cheap stuff, Diablo, Hellfire, Midnight basiclly a ton of different kinds of paint
2 custom built shockers w/ dynasty boards, efficency cans, 90 degree grips, Halo and 16" barrel
Smart parts freak
There is not a single strength about this product what so ever.
The shell, worst ever seen.
I bought 8 cases because it was supposed to be good paint and out of the 8 cases that we tried to shoot i think maybe a bag did not break. We tried it in shockers, DM6, Ion and an impulse. Ever gun on every setting even with turning the shocker dwell down to almost nothing the paint continued to break. I was lucky and at one point had about 20 shots that went through with out a break. I have never even seen a box of seconds paint shoot this bad.
Never waste your money on this paint!!!!! Its the worst thing you could possible buy.
We hated these paintballs. They kept blowing up in our barrels. It happened in a buddy's A-5 using a stock barrel and my 98 with the CP. They would bust abut 5 times a game or more. It was real bad.
We checked and the balls were small enough to roll right through the barrels, and they were not being chopped but blew up in our barrels. It was about 40 degrees outside when we used them.
So the balls do not work with high pressure guns or in cold weather, or maybe it was both. Or it could be a bad batch. We will never know because we will never buy the balls again.
So how do I rate it if 10 is best 5 is average, and 1 in worst. Personally, they suck. If a ball blows up in your barrel, it can screw your whole game up. For me they deserve a 3. But I will give them a 5, which is considered average in hopes we just got a bad batch.
If you are using a high pressure gun or it is cold out, go to Walmart and get some Visable Impact. It is made by Procaps (the xball/draxxus people). They did not act up at all during the same day.
5 out of 10

Doesnt always break, is dimpled sometimes, thin fill
I can get bonus ball at my field for $32 per case, but they shoot horrible in my cocker. I use engage for $47/ case for rec ball, and I like it a lot. It shoots well in my gun, but it doesnt always break. ALso, the fill isnt as thick as it could be, and i used to be able to get big ball for $40/ case, and i liked it before. However, for rec ball its very accurate, and I like it.
Good for rec ball, bad for tournaments. Shoots well, straight, at least in cocker.
