I bought this paint for my first time a few days ago. i was used to crappy quality paint from wal mart so i was hoping this would be a step up. Well, for the price, it was...
I picked up a case of 2000 for 59$ Canadian. Now that is very cheap, considering a lot of the lower quality paint I buy is roughly that price. Once I had purchased them, the store owner even opened the box and checked to make sure there was no broken paint. That definitely is very good customer service!!!
Anyways, I brought them home and aired up my Mini right away. I found as I opened the box 4 neat little compartments, where all balls were packed into bags of 500. All were in good shape, no dimples, or breaks which is good. I believe that the paint is most often fresh then when they come in.
When I loaded them into my gun, they were kind of interesting looking. I got a case with a blue and brown coloured shell which isn't the nicest but I can't complain. The paint shot straight and true, and I had no ball breaks which is awesome!!!
My only complaint is that there were a decent amount of bounces. Also the paint filling I got was a white, with a bit of a pink tinge to it. It was terrible. If you were to use this in a game, it would be so easy to wipe and it would barely show up.
Very good paint for the price. This is quality stuff and the box i bought was even certified as an eco friendly fill. It doesn't have dimples on them and they come packaged well with many different coloured shells and fill. Make sure to pick up some paint colour other than white though. I recommend this to anyone looking for a practice paint or woodsball.
Won't break in marker, decent fill and reasonable accuracy.
Inconsistent size and shape (not round), dimples, etc.
I can't really recommend this paint compared to some of the other paints in this price range. It's certainly not the worst paint out there but it's not what I'd consider a top tier paint in its price range either. Packaging itself was good.
The bore size was somewhat irregular and on the very small side. .682 was the best match I could get. But the balls just weren't round and consistent enough.
The paint shot okay. It seems like this paint is just one step above practice grade. There isn't really any quality there, it's average in most respects.
I would only buy this paint: 1) If you don't need quality and it's cheaper than others in its price range, or 2) if this is the only paint available in its range.

Dimple within a few weeks of purchase.
These are great balls for $40; very consistent, and very round. These are the roundest I have seen for $40. I didn't notice any bouncing or chopping. However, I did notice that they dimpled quite easily, (not out of the box though) even within a few weeks of purchase. I did not notice this with other brands. Naturally, this was the cause of many "wingers." Other than that, great balls.

Cheap, consistant round ball.
Fill, poor yellow fill.
Used these balls for the first time yesterday. Nice round ball with smooth seams. No dimples, quite accurate using a freak barrel.
No breaks, the fill was a very light yellow making hits difficult to see. The balls i used were a dark bronze colour which again made seeing the balls in flight hards (suppose this was also a problem for those i was firing at).
All in all a decent ball, i would use again but hopefully get a differant shell colour.

ALWAYS underbore(.685 or .683)
Usually breaks on target, accurate, pretty colors
Some will be dimpled, some bounces
I have used this product twice, and have used around 1100 paintballs. I have none break in my barrel, and all have broken on my target. No bounces so far. The color fill really shows in these, but I have only had white. They don't stain(I've used some that have), and really worked well.
So, after extensive use(around 10 cases) I found that these are GREAT!!!!!!! Not one barrel or breach break at all(of course my barrel is a .691 so that might help). Barely any bounces, and they have a near perfect shell. Now of course these aren't tournament grade paint, but still very nice in their class. However, out of those 15 cases, around 300 of them were dimpled. Nothing like half the shell, but noriceable none the less. CO2 shoots these down(curve) a little, but HPA likes to shoot them up a little.
Buy them. 10 stars because there are no defects, and In my opinion, are the best in their class($40 for a case). Compared to like DXS Field/Blaze, I would give them an 8 because they break better than Triumph.

14" or longer, they are still amazing out of shorter barrels
also work well with apex and flatline
Maybe the seam, but trust me, it's nothing
I love this paint! It is not he best, but it is still pretty good. I get for $35 and I think it is just as good as $50 paint (and yes I have used $50 paint). I have also used marballizer and evil, they are the best, but they're $70. I suggest you get these over those even because there isn't a HUGE difference.
GET THESE! They are definitely the best paint for the money and then some. I get this paint all the time.

Breaks when hit.
nothing that I found
For the money ($40 a case) this is good paint. I played an entire day using my Ion with a Freak barrel and never had a chop or ball breakage. My dad and sister also used this paint but they were playing with Tippmanns. They never had a problem either and overall i was pleased with how this paint preformed. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this paint again.
Recommended for the Rec baller.

The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.
Period of Product Use:
Less than a month
4 of 4 people found this review helpful.
More than 5 years
Similar Products Used:
Stingers, Xball Bronze, Blaze, JT Elite, Proball, Preminums, Heat, and more
SP1, HPA, CP barrel .689
Any decent barrel, that is not too small.
Bright thin fill round, no dimples, shoots straight
Kept blowing up in the barrel when colder than 50 degrees.
A freind got these and told me they were crap. Well, I did not belive him because I like DXS/Procap paint. He was running co2, with a Spyder, in 25 F Degree weather. So I thought my low pressure SP1 would have better luck, plus it was 50 degrees out. I did have better luck than him, I only busted 1 in every 10 balls. Total crap.
Paint was round, and not old.
Edit!!! took the same paintballs out, in 65 degrees, and it worked perfect!! So the moral of the story. DON'T USE THIS PAINT IN COLD/COOL WEATHER!!!!!! Simply too brittle.
Unless I got a bad batch, simply get Stingers.
I give it a 1 in cold weather, and a 7 in warm weather. You just need to know ONLY USE IN WARMER WEATHER!!!!
I'm giving it a 7 assuming it is used in warm weather. I reserve a 10 for near perfection. They are good balls for the money, but they are not Marbs, Xball Bronze/Silver/Gold, etc..

Tippman 98 Custome with 32 degrees 14'' Whisper barrel, and some senario upgrades.
My whisper barrel works well, and the stock barrel, I want to find out if my new flatline will shoot it well.
Can be dimpled
This is the paint sold at Big Pear Paintball, and the step up from the white box crap they sell you at Paintetd Forest. It is good paint and even though it may occationaly have a dimple in it, it shoots fine and I have had no unusual problems with it
Go a step up and use this paint. It is worth it to have good paint
I used this paint once at my local field. There were no dimples and they flew relatively straight. A few curved down and to the right but i think it was just my barrel. The fill is good and the balls all broke from what i could tell. The fill isn't runny and is hard to wipe. The fill also all comes off in the wash.
I recommend this to anyone. There inexpensive, accurate, and good quality.
A good buy.
