I've only used them in my JJ barrel
Accurite. People know when they get hit.
5 out of 10 don't break on contact. Expensive.
I have bought only one case of these myself. They do fly strait, but I had a problem with them hitting my target and not breaking. Thought maybe it was a fluke. I was wrong. Most of the people at the field I play on uses these, but I'll never waste my money on them again. I have been hit many times by this paint and walked away unscathed. I would rather spend $40 on paint that plan out misses 5 out of 10 times, but breaks every time, then $60 paint that hits it target, but doesn't break 5 out of 10 times. The odds of me getting lucky add hitting him and the cheap paint breaking. I think They cost to much to not break on contact.
xo spectrum- not as good
xo v1- better
jt fluid hydro- close
jt fluid monsoon- better

Pure Energy 68/45
mid bore barrels
Easy to follow shot stream.
no chops/barrel breaks
Shot very straight.
not worth $60 Cnd.
very hard ball.
very big seem.
I thought I would give the ekg paintballs a try when I saw them at my local field for sale.
I dont think I will buy these balls again. They didnt break on targets as easiley as I was hoping and the seems sure didnt look like a mid grade paintball seem. However, they sure did fly straight. I could follow my stream of balls for better accuracy. Some people dont like this because this also means your opponent can also see them coming.
The white fill/ white shell was cool.
The bottom line for this paintball is that there are cheaper paintballs that will perform at a higher level. If you have shot this paint and liked it, try xo v1 or jt fluid hydro or monsoon. They are cheaper and perform much better.
7 out of 10

PMI Premium - Nice, break, but expensive
Brass Eagle Monsterballs - Easy on the wallet, but do others a favor and don't shoot them as they hurt like hell and don't usually break
Freak green Smart Parts Ion ^_^ - Q-lock neck, 360 QEV, CP sling blade trigger, Smart Parts dropforward with On/Off ASA, 2007 Powerlyte Scepter Barrel kit, Viewloader Evlution 2, and a 48/3,000
I was matching it up to .686 and that seemed to work.
Could break a bit more on impact
I like these paintballs. I'm not sure if I'm getting ripped off at my local field as they sell them for $55 a case, but I have no way of comparing their price. Anyways, none of the cases I've shot have had dimples, are all consistent in sizing, and have a bright fill. The only downside is that only about half the shots I hit others with broke, but that makes me want to search for a new brand.
Awesome paint, pretty good bang for your buck, but it needs to break more. What's the point of having awesome paint that won't break upon impact?
theyre KINDA hard, but all nelson paint is...
Good paint, i shot it today and did very well. I was getting fluxes of 5 or less, which is nice. Like all nelson paint it is 685-690. It broke pretty well, with a nice fill. It was pretty good on the wallet, $45 for paint that shoots like $65 paint. They are really cool looking as well, a nice swirly shell like marbs, but 30$ cheaper... Youll like this paint, it will probably be the only thing i shoot from now on.

Any kit with a .685 barrel. I use a J&J Ceramic 2-piece Elite Edge Kit. Works flawless.
All very high quality
Glitter bright green
Don't smell bad
Hurts to get hit by them
Could break a little easier
Well, I've tried stingers, VI's, and a few other types of paint. When I tried the EKG's, they matched my .685 back perfectly on my J&J kit. Honestly... these things were ball on ball every single time. They flew far, straight, and broke upon impact. The fill is a thick, bright green paint which washes off pretty easy, doesn't stink, and actually has a hint of glitter (which also washes out w/o problems). I think the glitter's there to help prevent cheaters from wiping.
When i listed the weaknesses earlier, I was taking some of that from my girlfriend. She was quite honest about how much it hurt to get hit by them. It's not like I got many bounces, because I didn't. But I just think that if they broke a little easier, they probably wouldn't hurt so much. lol
I can't rant and rave enough about how consistent they were. Granted I have a good reg, but a good round paintball, and good barrel match affects velocity just as much the reg, and these were flying out at +/- 5fps every time.
Very good paint. Would definately recommend, although keep in mind, I haven't used the ultra high quality stuff.
