As most reviewers have stated already, this was a one-off purchase for an off-field outting. I split a box with 2 friends for a short couple of games. In addition to my setup above, we shot it through an A-5 with E-Grip, a Custom 98 and a Arakon pistol. All in all, we were impressed with the paint. Nobody broke all ball all night. It shot straight and clean (for a paintball :) ). The downside, noted by everyone who took shots that night, is that shells are noticably harder. On a cool summer evening, it wasn't too bad, but any bare skin shots hurt like hell. Lots of nasty welts from this paint.
For recreational, off-field paint will we buy it again? Sure! The welts and bruises are like battle wounds for us -- but, if you can't bulk up with clothing, make sure we keep ever piece of skin covered. Other than that, it was a good rec ball. It won't make the cut on other paint, but lets you easily split a box 3-ways for less than $20 a piece.
Tippmann Alpha Black tactical 100% stock w/PMI 3000/48cu HPA tank and Viewloader $6 hopper.
Zero Ball chop
Decent superthick fill
200balls short of a 2000 Case
Bought these at Wal-Mart and used one case of 1800balls. Comes in 3 bags of 600 which is kinda odd.
anyways these are decent balls as they are fairly accurate and have a gooey snot coloured fill that is a little dull. The paint blends in on enemys camo sometimes and is hardly noticable. The green and brass colour shell is somewhat hard to see in the woods but nothing like the JT tacticals.
I noticed about 1 of approx 8 balls threw a nice curve left or right which is decent. Every enemy i hit the ball broke so maybe i got lucky. was able to score 4 headshots out of 600 balls.
There are better balls out there for cheaper/same price. I recommend trying Zap's Spank brand as they are cheaper in price and seem to break easier. plus the fill is brighter.
A-5 with an Apex barrel.
Spider Pilot with progressive barrel.
Any barrels; these paintballs aren't picky.
Cheap, few dimples, resists weather pretty good, good shell.
Fill isn't the greatest, not the most accurate.
I bought this paint because it was easy to acquire from Dicks Sporting Goods which is right next to where I work. It was the cheapest stuff there so I decided to give it a try. Using it in my A-5 I have had only 1 chop in the 2 years I have been using this paint. My friends use this paint also (at my recommendation) and none of them have told me of any chops.
My biggest problem with this paint is that it is not the most accurate. I'm assuming, though, that some of this inaccuracy may be due to my Apex and the spin put on the balls. This is exacerbated because each ball is slightly out of round.
Besides the inaccuracy my only concern is with the fill, which is a translucent yellow and somewhat hard to see. It's also easy to wipe off (for all those punk cheaters out there).
Overall I would have to say that these are very good paintballs for the price. They come in packages of 1800, which is odd, but this is not a big concern. The quality of the paint itself more than makes up for this oddity in packaging and for it's shortcomings in fill and accuracy.
I must lower the rating somewhat because of the accuracy issues and because there is much better paint on the market.
wild streak - terrible
heavy metal - i prefer tacamo because alot of the heavy metal balls i used were mis-shaped and had dimples
premium - better but more expensize
vapor - not quite as good
zap rec series - a bit cheaper but not quite as good, i had quite a few dimples in a case of 1800
cronic - much better, this paint is awesome, but expensive
custom pro E act
any barrel with a .689 bore... better barrels will always shoot better
Hard to see
Decent acuracy for the price
Dont always break
Hard to see
Not very acurate
well these paintballs are pretty cheap, i got them for $45 cdn at walmart
out of the 2 cases ive used so far, i havent had any dimples
-hard to see
these paintballs are kinda hard to see so your opponent will never see them coming (or atleast sometimes he wont
-decent acuracy for the price
considering i only paid 45 dollars for a case, they are fairly accurate
hard to see and there isnt alot of it
-dont always break
i hit alot of people with these but lots of the times they didnt break
-hard to see
hard to see so when your shooting, sometimes it can be abit hard to aim
-not very accurate
i mentioned before that they the accuracy was decent for the price and it is but they still arent that accurate
i put one in my barrel and looked through it while holding it up to a light and you could see light shining in through to sides... so the're kinda oval shaped
one thing i noticed about these is that the seem was really big on these and would occasionally cause them to curve
kinda ripping you off for 200 paintballs
If your just practicing or goofing around with your buds... these balls are perfect - cheap and kinda acurate.
But if your a hardcore tourney player... i wont not recomend these balls - they dont always break, they have a big seem, and they dont have alot of fill

-Box Of 1800? C'mon Guys...
Ok, so I wanted to play paintball, but it was on short notice right? So what do I do? I head to Dick's and grab myself 1 case of this stuff. I figured maybe i'd get a break or 2, or maybe it would be Inaccurate....
Boy was I WRONG. This paint was awesome! I bought it for 30 bucks and it's competing with midnight paint. I'm probably going to keep buying this. It bounces if your over like 130 ft away, but if your that far away, don't play paintball...
This Paint Is The BEST For The Price, Go To Dick's n Grab Some.
Nelson Whack, tippman werks, marbalizer, impact. Better than some worse than others. It is an accurate paint.
Viewloader High Voltage with a Carbon Fiber Barrel, with an Ricochet hopper
JT Tac-5 with a sniper barrel
Tippman Custom with e grip and Viewloader evolution 3 hopper
Smooth bore, medium caliber, Works fine with my rifled barrel
No dimples, thick fill, hard shell, very accurate
The fill needs to be a brighter color.
If you are hit in your mask or on open skin we have had the copper shell cut people. It is not serious but it can damage you goggles if someones pressure is set to high. I love to shoot this ammo but I I hate to get hit by it. It is great for people using rifled barrels and you shouldn't have trouble with balls breaking in your barrel.
If you can catch it on sale or you need paint quick buy it. If you can wait for a delivery order some thing else.I am giving it a seven due the small cuts and abrasions that some of my teammates have experienced.

When playing by rec rules, you need to have a "quarter sized mark" of paint to be eliminated. It is dificult to eliminate someone when your paintballs dont even have enough paint in them to do so! They arent the most accurate either. There are only 1800 to a case, which is sorta ripping you off of 200 balls.
No good unless you find enjoyment in shooting people and not getting them out...
Other types of balls, some good, some not so good...
Trilogy Pro, Stock, mech. Offset rail, red dot sight. 70/45 HPA
Tippmann CP-E / PMI Razzor / red dot sight / 20 oz.
Ricochet 2KX LCD
Anything small bore if closed bolt. Rolled right thru my smallest back (.687).
No breaks in gun, shot quite straight. Cost. (cheap)
Rollout issues. Small bore required from what I saw.
Okay, went to a byop game yesterday. As the only paint available here comes from walmart, I read reviews and decided on 1 case 1800 Tacamo balls, 1 case 500 Visible Impact - which i never got to using.
Game conditions: Temps about -5C or so, snowing. Played indoors in unheated buildings, and outside around these same buildings. I have never previously tried this paint, as most games are fpo.
It performed very well in my case, I fired over 1200 of these balls yesterday and the only barrels I squeegee'd all day were other ppl's. Paint seemed to fly quite well, and broke on target well. Fill was pretty thick and bright yellow. I also shortstroked a couple times thru the day, and still did not chop. Also liked the slim case design too, no bags stacked on top of each other.
The only negative I saw was rollout issues due to not having a small enough back. .685 might do it...
I found these to be decent balls to bring to a byop game. Quite cheap costwise at $45 Canadian for 1800, not too bad for the performance I saw. Maybe I got a good case, but since nothing is perfect, and it's not their fault I didn't have a smallbore back - I'll give 'em a 9...
Very good price. Got them for 30 dollars on sale at Dicks.
Doesn't sell a 2000 round case not the best fill
When i first bought these paintballs i was pretty sure that they weren't going to be good. So i started fooling around with them and they were pretty accurate. Not the biggest fill but the seemed to break on contact. I had a friend over and we played in my backyard for fun and to my surpise i 27 degree weather, they broke every time. I have only had maybe 2 barrel breaks in about 1700 of the paintballs which is great.
I would reccomend them for just rec purposes and having fun at a field. There is better paint out there but this is worth the money
Tippmann Model 98, Bob Long X-Chamber, 16" barrel, Halo TSA LED hopper
I use a 12" Spyder Barrel w/ a 4" adapter
Very few breaks, small seam, good fill consistancy, fairly accurate, cheap
Somtimes they dont break on contact, only 1800 in case, could be more accurate
I have mainly used this paint in extremely cold weather (Below Freezing) so take this review accordingly...
I have been using this paint for about 2 1/2 months, going through 5 cases of paint and have had nearly no breaks in my marker. On the other hand, I have also had a problem with this paint not breaking on impact. A friend of mine uses Tacamo too and I have taken more shots from him that don't bust than any of the other guys we play with. I do want to blame this on the excessive cold we have been playing in, but since I have not had a chance to use it in warm weather, I'm not sure if this is true.
Also, the paint is fairly accurate. They are not as accurate as the Midevil, but they are also $15 cheaper on the case. They are great for woods ball or practice speedball, but I would not recommend it for tourney play.
Lastly, I'm undecided on the color. Have been on both the giving and receiving end of this paint, I can say it is double edged sword. The dark color means that your victim can't see the paint coming, the downside: you can't see where its going. Because of this, especially in the woods, I don't know if I like the color or not.
If you like to see where your paint is flying and walk your shots in, this is not good paint for you, but if you aim and shoot and don't need to watch your shots going in, it is great paint for woodsball and practice.
