They won't break in the barrel.
They are very dimpled
They have large seam lines
I bought 2 cases of these. I ended up using these as target paint because they wouldn't break on target and caused huge bruises on all my friends. My friends offered to buy them from me so that they didn't have the take the pain of being shot with these. My marker was shooting at 285 fps and I had just about every other ball bounce. I did the drop test off a 6ft. ladder onto concrete and these things bounced like toy rubber balls.
Please do yourself and your friends a favor and don't buy these. RPS stingers are around the same price and much better! These have the hardest shells I have ever seen.

Fill, shell, went stright enough for close range, Really cheap, comes in sealed bags.
Seam was rough, There were a few eggs in every bag.
I found the paint was ok. The paint came from XO industries three weeks ago. The shell was more of a soft thick shell. It was not brittle. I would compare the shell to Draxxus triumph. The shell had no problems breaking on anyone and I did not have any breaks in my gun.
When I looked through the bags there were probably around a dozen eggs per bag. I decided not to worry about it and wanted to see how the eggs flew. No breaks.
The seam is pretty coarse and prominent on every ball I looked at. I had a few really stray balls at really inopportune times.
It cost around $32 a case. Not bad for the price. I would recomend it but only if it is somewhat fresh.
This paint isn't bad. I bought a box pretty cheap last night. Turns out through the night I had few bounces and the inconsistant rounds were not working well with my flatline. Usually I can get a 6 inch spread at 100 ft, however I noticed every now and again, I'd get a shot which would hook. I tested this out this morning. I shot 100 rounds and about 1 in 8 ended up far from my target!
I'd not recommend this paint unless you're just looking for very cheap rec paint.
Unless your barrel is oval or lumpy, don't use this paint.
Came in a box instead of directly from the crap pile they were found in.
I'm basing this review on the box that my friend opened.
These paintballs were so bad out of the box that I didn't open my box, took it back to the field office and got something else.
Not super important but they were a dull dark blue. (I like colorful marbs :) )
Some were larger than others. (yes it was noticable)
Some were oblong, conical (like a bullet), oval, some had dimples.
Anything but straight.
For every pod my friend filled up, there were a handful that were bad (misshaped).
Probably about 6 of them were broken in the first bag of 500 (from a case of 2000)
Some were hard some were soft.
I cant belive that the guy in the office said "yea people say these are pretty good" with confidence. Guess he's trying to get rid of them. (or maybe he got the box made on monday....or some hit the swtich on the quality control machine...i dunno)
Surprisingly they didn't really break in his Nasty Shocker even when ramping. (I would watch them curve like crazy though)
2 out of 10 because they didn't break in the gun/barrel.
If you like shooting abstractly shaped paint then this is great for you! Otherwise spend your $40 on something better.

Visible Impact (decent paint you can buy at wal-mart)
Monster Balls (worst paint)
ETek Ego, Cure Bolt
Shocker SFT, AA barrel blue front, Check-It Unimount, Q-lock, Blackheart
Vloctiy JR Virtue'd
Any barrel that will let the ball roll through, I like to over bore. I use a .693 on both my shocker and etek.
Breaks on target
None that I have found.
I bought some winter spectrum paint at my local shop. I was supposed to play but I didn't so I figure I would shoot it with my Etek. The paint was cheap, it was about $44. Shooting it, I had no barrel breaks. The paint went through my vlocity well with no jams. The balls were pretty accurate. It shot well out of my friends ion and my etek. No problems with the paint. I would buy it again.
Get it, its pretty good paint. I don't know how some reviews on here are low, maybe they got a bad batch?

These paintballs look great in the case. No breaking in the gun, no chops either but the problem is yet to come!! They just don't break! If the only thing you ever shoot at is plywood then these balls are great, but as soon as there is a little give to your target you get lots and lots of bounces. I'll take a walk around my field and pick up the unbroken balls between games, usually out of the balls I pick up from the field at least 60% of the balls are Spectrums and I'm the only one shooting them out of 6 people, not too great IMO. Getting hits is a big part of paintball and when they don't break it's a real pain. Getting hit by these balls is also a real treat. It's basically like shooting marbles at people, usually made worse by fact they don't break.
Fine for the price, just cross your fingers people aren't shooting them at you. They are accurate enough, fill is fine, but overall they just don't break enough on human targets.
Monster Balls - Suck
V1 Paintballs - Suck
Local Field Paint- Suck
Zap Cryptic- Not as good but decent
Marbalizers- Very nice only done like 1k of those though.
DM5,Empire B1 hopper, 70/4500 Crossfire Stubby
Ultralite - 689 I think not sure
A little hard shell so not an easy break if your playing woods.
I love this paint it is highly affordable and makes it so I don't break as much. It is basically my favorite paint I've ever used. Only problem is with it is that sometimes the balls will not break and that kinda stinks, but when you have 10 fresh balls that don't break in your barrel like some others, I think that you'll get at least a couple breaks =P.
I love this and for 40 dollars at my local field I love it more.
This paint is a great practice paint and field paint. Great Fill
There is not a weakness in my opinion
I used it a couple of times for rec play.. Not bad paint. seams to shoot straight. no barrel breaks. Always breaks on target. wouldnt use it in torniment play though. if your a rec palyer like me this is the paint for you. I would deffinatly recommend it if you cant get ahold of heats or some better paint
The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.
Period of Product Use:
Similar Products Used:
V1 by XO that sux worse.
Tippmann custom pro with rufus dawg bolt and 16" j&j cermamic barrel.
None, they suck.
They break in your gun and barrel.
These are next to the worse paintballs I've ever used, XO V1 being the worst. All XO products I've used to far have had the same result, they all break in your gun and paint the inside of your barrel. Everybody at the field I play at have had the same result with the Xo paintballs which is their gun chopping paint, so it's not my gun. Unless you want to clean your barrel after every second or third shot I reccomend against all XO paintballs.
Stay away from XO !!!!!! I wouldn't use them if they were free. They break in your gun.
It does not matter, I uses several different kinds
Inconsistent shell, smaller diameter than its counterparts priced similarly. Lack of fill color choices.
Our local field switched from Karnage to Spectrum over a year ago (I suspect to get a lower price), which he did pass on. But in the long run, it's not cheaper when you keep breaking paintballs in your barrel.
They also carry V1 which seems to be more consistent in its accuracy and less breaks in your barrel.
Keep away from Spectrum, their V1 seems to be much better.
