Strengths: -Price. $20.00 (plus shipping) for 2500 balls
-Arrived with only 3 broken balls in the case.
-Kind of round.
-Nice shade of orange. (Too bad that wasn't the color I ordered)
Weaknesses: -VERY thin fill. about like water.
-Shells are VERY brittle. Putting these balls in a Rev is like putting eggs in a blender.
-About 1 in 10 shots broke in my barrel. REALLY!! Not kidding. I had to wash out my barrel between every game.
-Like I said, kind of round, but not very. Most were dimpled or egg shaped. A few were almost cubes!!
Conclusion: I was putting this paint through my smart parts barrel. I shot the whole case in a day. This was the first time that I didn't have a good time playing the game. You may save a few dollars, but is it really worth it to go home with a sick feeling that you just wasted a whole day and a lot of money on air and field fees. Please learn from my mistake.

If this were the only paint available, then I would give up the sport that I love!!!!

I only wish I could give this crap a lower score than 1.

Strengths: It really works fine with model 98s. Their as cheap as dirt.
Weaknesses: There not too bad if you Know your buying 2nd or 3rd quality paintballs. There surely not marbs but their 1/3 the price and 1/2 the quality. What can i say, Im cheap.
Conclusion: I WOULD recommend these paintballs to someone who is looking for a ball that works fine for backyard play and is cheap.

Strengths: *ahem* Don't bother. See below.
Weaknesses: The temprature: 64 balmy degrees.
The Gun: Pirahna STS with reg. and stock barrel
The paint: 98 degrees paintballs. one hopper full.

I had my intended victim well within sight. The punk had moved into my position, unaware of me. A grin crept acroos my face. A light trigger pull later, and my "victim" knew exactly where I was- it was easy. Just look for an orange mist, and confetti gelatin floating to the ground. For every shot that whizzed by my head, I returned a shower of liguid paint and shards of shell. *grrrrr!* I squeeged the barrel, dumped the remaining 98 Degrees, loaded up some marbs my friend threw to me, and proceeded to eliminate the punk with two shots... he had grown confident seeing an orange mist fog bank in front of my position.

Conclusion: I learned from my mistake. I dumped 'em, and will never harken it's door again.

Learn from my mistake.

Don't get them.

Strengths: Somewhat accurate- At 20 yards, I was painting a light pole a tasty shade of orange.

Very cheap- I'm on a tight budget, so I had to look for something low cost (but higher quality than BE at Wally World). Snagged 625 at the local gunshop for 12 clams.
Weaknesses: Anyone want 525 poor quality balls?
- about 1/4 to 1/3 were dimpled.
- barrel bust rate was something like 30%%

Conclusion: If you're hard up for some paint and cash is an issue, then you may find this stuff works well for you. The cold temp. may be a small factor (47 degrees) but 3-4 outta 10 shots busting? When the weather warms up a bit, we'll try this stuff out again to give a another fair shake.

Strengths: It is crazy cheap. 30 dollars for a 2000 round case.
Weaknesses: Where can I begin. I open the case and literally 3 of every five balls had dimples.
I put one into a barrel and held it up to a light, VERY inconsistent shape.
Not only that, i am using a .689 (med/large) bore, and this paint got so stuck that I had to break the shell to squeegee it out.
I gassed up my autococker and began to shoot. The paint flies a lot less accurately because of the deformities, and ther is no way that I can get the 10 bps rate of fire that I am usually able to, these balls break all the time!
Conclusion: Absolute crap. You get what you pay for. Im not a guy who uses tournament grade stuff every weekend. I am a broke student looking for a bargain. So, I like a deal just as much as the next guy, but this stuff is too crappy to be called a paintball.If this is any testamament, just for kicks we loaded up these balls into a talon and 4 out of 10 balls had nasty breaks in the barrel.
