I bought a case of these for $60 which I guess is okay even though I got kind of ripped off. I got Green/Pink shells and green fill. The green was bright and I could see it when I hit a target which made me happy. There could be more fill like Anarchy has in there paintballs. I did not get a single chop out of 2000 and I did not get any bounces. These paintballs are very good and worth the money to get them
I've used the pink filled Engage because I was entering in a Tournament and I needed some good paint and fast. So I bought this the day of the tournament and test fired a few shots when I got to the game. Lots of bright pink fill!!!! After the entire day, i had not bounced a single ball and didnt chop any either! And of course i must mention, i won the tournament!!!!
I reccomend this to any player looking for some real nice paint.
WEAKNESS: the only weakness is the cost of $26 for 1000 rds. Not horrible, but still pretty expensive for a weekend player like me
-People might get mad when you keep hitting them dead on.
I used this paint for the first time today. It worked extremely well with my a-5. It was very accurate, even though i didnt have a perfect barrel-paint bore match. I didnt have any chops, and i was shooting very fast. The fill is hard to wipe, and it's thick, but not too thick.
Excellent paint. What i will be using for a long time to come.
Ok, so I had a tourney yesterday. STARS in Houston at Paintball Zone. We all waited for the NPS truck to get here with paint. It finally arrived at 8:30. The team all planned to use engage, since it was the cheapest case at $65.00 each.
So, we buy 3 cases. We go out, shoot our guns(3 pm6's, an ion, and an 06 ego). They dont shoot well. We look at the balls, theyre consistently round. They have a seam, but their terrible trajectory shouldnt be blamed on the seam. No dents. We're shooting them all through our guns as if we have barrel breaks(flying everywhere). Our detents are fine(detents can be a problem sometimes with flight path). Everything is fine... yet the grouping of the shots is like 2 ft away from eachother... when the target is about 10 feet away... Everyone else said their Engage was flying nice.
We must of gotten 2 crappy batches in a row... we didnt open the third to see. We just returned it. I've shot empire bullets better than that. I still love empire though. Their paint is supposed to be high quality, but I am led to believe that these 2 batches weren't any good.
Im sure my batch was crappy.. but from my experience, I'd have to give it an 7.
(guys, 7 is still good, it's above average... which is a 5)
04 vision shocker (blue)
NDZ pro clamp feedneck (black)
lp crossfire 45/45
Dye rhino cover (blue)
SOON TO COME (when i get out of debt with parents):
NDZ blade roller tigger
NDZ he bolt kit
CP reg w/ gauge port
My all- american on my shocker worked fine.
Nice round shell.
A fairly brittle shell.
Fill isnt all that bright and is kind of runny.
I used this paint at a 3 man tournament the shell was very round and accurate.The fill wasn't that bright and kind of runny.
I was playing in young guns but we got to play the Rookie/Novice guys and after a game a player came over to me and said "You hit me right of f the break, but it bounced."Talk about disappointing. Later i was shot four times in my left leg and all of them bounced (pants were kind of baggy).
I would definatley use this for practice and for rec games.
any aftermarket barrel(as with all paintballs)
My stock barrel worked fine
-NO DIMPLES WHATSOEVER
-breaks every time
-none that I found
OK, I was a little tight on moola, so I went to a place where I knew they sold good paint for cheap. I saw this paint and said, why not?The other Empire paint is awesome. So I bought a case. So I got home & opened it up. I surveyed all the bags thoroughly looking for dimples or some kind of defect in the balls. There was none. They were all perfectly round, and the same size. But they also felt kinda hard, and that might cause bounce. So I grabbed my gun, and headed to the local field. Oh how wrong I was. NO BOUNCES!!All the balls shot perfect and broke on target. This is the nicest paint I could find for 50 bucks a case.
BUY IT!!!!No matter what kind of paintball you are playing, you won't be dissapointed.
Heavy Metal: (not consistent breaks) (poor-ok flight/accuracy). don't compare
Zap: pure garbage, squeeze them and they look like small junoir mints. Awfull don't compare
Diablo Nightmares: I had a good batch that flew great and break with quater sized splat My cousins got a bad batch that where stuck together flew awfull and broke good. Iffy not as good
Pmi Premium: ok accuracy, not as good
Diablo Inferno : ok-good accuracy , quater splat. not as good
Empire Engage: best I've used Good accuracy quater splat atleast.
A5 - Tippmann
Palmer stabalizer in MP-Mag (from special ops paintball)
Stiffi 14" barrel
JCS Wire stock with rear velocity adjuster
JCS Gold Power Tube
Lapco offset sight rail
JCS 3" weaver rail
EO-Tech Holosight (I have real guns I use this on it rocks)
I've been using Hammerhead with fins and a stiffi .691 The Stiffi is best.
-The shell is stiff and cracks well
-thick slimey fill
-aren't *PERFECTLY* round but close.
- Best accuracy of what I've used.
-always Breaks as long as you don't range it too far out.
-The shell is stiff and cracks (like an egg i guess)
-the balls are consitently round . very small seam that is slightly dented inward all the way around. smaller seam than others and not a flat seam like some I've used.
-thick slimey fill, with atleast a quarter sized splat.
the dent on the seam is about .003-.009 (I think) to .009- .015 (my cousin thinks) inward, I'ld prefer an unnoticable seam. This is not measured just a guess from my minimum thought to my cousins max.
I assume that the fact it dents in slightly affects flight somewhat .
don't let the seam dent scare you out of getting this paint you should try it. especially if your using the other paints I listed.
They are round but not perfectly round.
I've never had them break in my barrel or chop I use an A-5.
My cousin C. breaks them in his Gameface Recon occasionally.(more often when he uses the stock barrel) ( I blame the gun and hopper)
and my cousin E. breaks them in his phantom only when he loads more than 1 in his barrel. ( operater error or purpose)
oh It's about $45 where I buy it.
I like it best out of what I have used. Cracks always when within range. good accuracy.
I'm gonna try more paints soon but the stores around here don't carry a wide variety.
I give it a 9 cause nothing is perfect and I was able to pin point some faults.

M-4 barrel and A-5 flatline are all that i tested with but both worked great
I have never chopped with this paint
I think this is honestly the best paint i have ever used the ball is very bright so you can see it. This is premium paint for a cheap price. I think anyone should buy this paint empire just put it on the market this year. I have never chopped using this paint even when it was cold.
Buy it buy it buy it
