don't use this paint
None at all
It is not round at all,It has a really bad seem,
I bought one case of this crap when i first started to play and i had not even used any other kind of good paint wet and i thought it was the worst paint I shot like 5 balls through my gun and i broke 3 of them, after that i cleaned out my gun and shot so more i didn't break as many of them as i did before but i still did break a lot even when my barrel was clean they were really inaccurate
this is the worst paint in the world!!!
I wish i could give this a zero

In this price range, only Recsport, which seems to have slightly better quality and comes in a full case of 2000.

I'm using a Redz Pepperstickz kit. I suggest overboring with these balls using the .693 back. Tried my 14" UL .689 back and these were too tight fitting so the UL got put away. So, I do recommend you have a barrel kit with some larger backs/sleeves to try these out with.
Cheap for speedball practice
Only has 1800 balls per box
I use these balls for practice with the Virginia Tech Speedball Team, which we do on a weekly basis(weather permitting during this winter). I saw these at Dick's and decided to give them a go after I ran out of Recsport. These balls aren't too bad, just try to keep them as warm as you can and you shouldn't have any chopping issues.
There are a few that have dimples in each bag and some that are not sphere shaped, so overboring with a barrel kit helps. I'm not sure why they don't come as a box of 2000, they sell in boxes of 1800 balls which is 3 bags of 600. But, I can't complain since there aren't any decent paintball proshops here in Southwest Virginia.
The fills are pretty thick, yellow in color, and don't leave a residue like some cheaper balls. Shooting was pretty good, I experienced no barrel breaks with the batch I was using and the temperature at the time was around the low 50s.
Overall I'm satisfied with using these for speedball practice and I will continue to use these.
*update from 1/27
Had a bag and a box of these sitting around for about a week(2400 balls). I rolled them around about 3 times a day. Day of play, temp was about 50*F. Kept the balls in my truck where it was a bit warmer. No chops, but I had a handful of barrel breaks. I rotated between a .691 and a .689 back. Went to the larger back when the temp started to drop. I'd say out of the 2000+ balls I shot, I cleaned out the barrel about 8-10 times that day. Some breaks I could shoot through, and a few where I couldn't. Overall not too bad.
Good for practice balls or recball byop fields

Doesn't really matter. If you got a barrel kit it's nice to find a good barrel to ball bore.
-Flies Nice and Straight
-has a good goey fill
-A few dimples
-some moisture in the bag
Well I got these at Dick's Sporting goods not knowing what to expect. I got a case of 1800 for $35....I got back and tried them out and they were great .....I was very pleased with them.There were a few dimples,but not much at all,and a little of moisture,still not much of a problem....I shot a whole case without any breaks at all. They were pretty good, but you can buy them and decide.
This is great paint for a low price...It's not as great as some of the other stuff,but its still good and priced good for those of you on a low budget....So im gonna give it a 10!

few dimples, not a huge seam, fairly cheap @ $35 for 1800 @ Dick's
They come in a suitcase with 3, 600 round bags, which is a bit odd.
I usually by balls over the internet. I don't trust the local sporting goods stores since I have had bad experiences with buying paint from them (broken balls, balls that have obviously sat around way too long)..... Anyway I decided to go play at the last minute and needed some ammo. I went to my local Dick's expecting to pay way too much for crappy balls and then have to spend half my day cleaning my barrel breaks. When I saw these at $35 for 1,800 I figured it was worth a shot. I must say I was not expecting much. However I was very pleasantly supprised. They shot straight enough to hit what I was aiming at and they broke on target and I don't think I had a barrel break all day.
The fill is average, but the shells are a duller (darker) color (I had green and gold) which I like because they are harder to see in air.
I gotta say, I would buy them again if in a pinch for some ammo. I'll keep buying my paint on-line but I was quite suprised by the performance of these balls. Not bad at all. Solid product.
