I bought these to try and get away from the lowest of the low-end paintballs out there like Brass Eagle, Viewloader, and Winchester. Got a good deal on a case and tried them out.
I liked that there weren't any broken in the bags nor could I find any dimpled. The shells were good in that they broke well on their targets. The fill volume was good, but it did not cover well. In other words, it broke on people without too much problem...but seemed to wipe away too easy.
The biggest problem I had with these balls was the size. They jammed in my first two barrels because they are a little larger than the standard pantball. This led to some breakage in the barrel. Also, partly because of their size, they were very inaccurate at longer ranges.
I hate inaccuracy, so I'll have to score accordingly.
Too inaccurate for even the low price. Too many problems with smaller bore barrels. Liked the shell though.

Premium, Dusk, Marballizers, Sports Series, Evil, and Midevil
Spyder E-99 Avant, 14in PMI Razzor Barrel, Egg 2, and 12oz co2
Great for my barrel and worked great
It has a seam, oily, and accurate but not too accurate
I bought these at Walmart for a great price for 500 rds(10.88) I tried them out the next day and they worked like a charm. They were all oily so it got my hopper all oily. Anway they worked great for me even though they were at Walmart. I would so reccomend these.
lots of paintballs. If you're looking at these at walmart, buy pmi premium instead. Or superswirl if necessary.
larger bore barrels
Cheap as dirt.
Shells/fills are very dark and sometimes bounce. made up of factory seconds
I shot big ball through a bushmaster, pgp, sidekick stock, z-1, wgp ranger, and sl-68 II. With the right barrel match it still shot poorly. I was very unimpressed and wanted my money back immediately.
I was at wallyworld and grabbed some to try it cause it was on sale for about $11 per 500 so I figured why not. Boy was I bummed when I got home. Upon opening the box I noticed the balls had lots of dimples and the seam was very wide on each ball. My several month old pmi premium shot dead on while the big ball sucked. I had multiple barrels breaks over the 100+ balls I shot and several curves/bounces.
I would not recommend this paint to anyone. Learn from my bad experience and always buy quality paint. Sure it costs more, but the idea is to hit your target and not have to clean your barrel/breech out. For rec-ball I would recommend Pmi premium over this any day, but be aware that evil/all-stars are very worth the price.

GTA inline expansion chamber
D.O.P. rocket cock II
14" Tippmann Werks/ 12'' CMI Tru-flight
12oz Pure Energy tank
Tippmann werks (any length)
good thick fill
Can only find in yellow.
These are the only balls that i have used so far that i actually trust to function in my gun. Ive had one chop out of 4800 shots with big-balls and never had one break in my hopper. im my experience ive had one break in the bag but the rest, even covered in paint, did fine.
If you have a medium to small budget invest in big balls.
MArbalizer ( the best)
Draxxus Blaze (better)
All stars ( just as good)
Blue streak (bad)
Spyder Imagine, Whisper barrel, Shocktech supa fly bolt, CMI International drop forward, new shim and spring kit, Halo tsa LCD Backman
Tippmann A-5 w/ All American
None that i have found.
These are the best paintballs for under $50 a case. They are the same price as Blue Streak, but ten times better. These balls will break on contact unless you are really far away. The fill is very good, not easy to wipe. Good for woods ball and Speedball. Also, these balls won't break in your gun. Very good quality.
If you want to spend a bunch of money on paint, get Marbalizer. If you want quality that is matched by price, get these.
Tippmann A-5 with many upgrades:
Wicked air sportz equalizer board upgrade,
JCS deul trigger,
GTA double trigger,
Stainless steel screws, both airr tipps, and e-bay ones
Crossfire 70ci 4.5k psi peanut tank high output
Dye rhino tank cover 70ci peanut + fill nipple cover, and thread protector,
Flatline barrel *works well if you understand how to use it*,
Flatline quick disconnect stainless steel thumb knobs,
Stainless steel freak kit *all american 14" front, black*,
Custom flatline barrel condom, stock flatline barrel condom, and smart parts american flag barrel condom,
DOP rear velocity adjuster,
and a tool box that has everything you need for keeping JUST this gun up *including the oil*, and has all my stock parts, i dont throw anything out.... Oh and squeege's and straight shots just for this gun... I know im spoiled.
Above is just my love gun...
Backup gun *aka to lazy to clean my A-5 after i play gun*
JJ ceramic Barrel
20oz (co2 i know but i dont care)
Dunno, the jj is good for it though
Cheap black (not racist read on)
Okay paint, but its cheap, had a few breaks in the barrel, its good paint, if your playin w/ your friends in a yard, but not good enough *for me * to bring to a practice, or even a walk on... Sorry its okay, shell isnt bad, not greasy, and packaging isnt bad either... had like 1 ball break in 2 cases of it, (in the 500 bags) so its pretty good, accuracy is average at 80' its okay, even with the freak, when the paint is good its great, but there are wingers, and some bounces so its okay
Oh and there black, im not racist, but it messes w/ the halo eyes. and any other non break beam eye system (reflective)
I RECOMEND, and only if you dont' play alot, very cheep

scorch-pretty much better but dont break as easy
blue streak-don't compare
all stock brass eagle eradicator (same as marauder)
I don't have a recommendation.
Break easily (when shot and impacted)
hard to see and don't give you away
Not very bright paint
I like these paintballs for the most part because they are cheap and fairly good quality. the worst part about them has to be that the paint isn't all that bright so it is hard to see where you hit and easy for who you hit to wipe it off without you noticing. the best part is that they wont give you away in a game (especially woodsball) because they are black.
I would say they are a good quality paintball for the price you get them at but scorch would probably be a bit of a better choice and are about the same price.
Piranha GL BF w/ Smart parts 14" progressive barrel 20 oz CO2
Did not break no barrel
Did not break on target
After running out of paint some friends and I went up to the local walmart to buy something to shoot. I remembered seeing bigball here on PBReview and that it got a good rating. I was very disapointed with it after playing through 1000 rounds. I think that only 1 or 2 actually broke on target! many of the shots did not even break on trees that we shot from over 50ft. This paint does have a good price, and shoots pretty straight, but dont expect it to break on your target. (the paint may have been bad because we got it at walmart, i'm not sure how long it would have been sitting there on the shelf.)
good for target practice but not for games. Giving it a 6 because this paint had no problems with it (besides NOT BREAKING ON TARGET)
Any barrel that has the right bore size with this.
2. Bright fill
4. Hardly any breaks
5. Never any dimples
1. People think it sucks
2. Somtimes doesn't break on target
3. DraXxus better
Last Saturday, I bought these because I didn't have enough money for draXxus blaze. After wasting a hopper full, I grew to like these! Even though draXxus blaze is better, these are the best cheap paintballs. EVER! I hardly chopped a ball. But, sometimes when I shoot my target, it does not break. But don't wory, that is only SOMETIMES! It is a great product. I am only giving it a eight because there are better paintballs than this.
If you can't afford draXxus or any other expensive paint, buy this!
Blue Streak- horrible
Zap- once again, horrible
Tippmann 98 Custom, Eggy II, ups+
CP 1 piece, Dye Xcel/Ultralight, J & J ceramic, and others, but mainly anything above a stock barrel works wonders. It will work good in a stock barrel, but maybe not as good.
Not deviant Wal-Mart crap
Colors (where I buy them, they only have pink and yellow fill)
Strengths for RPS Big Balls...Hmm...Well for one, It's cheap. I got a case of 2000 for around $40.00 dollars, compare that to Marb's which around here is about $60.00. And Big Balls are much, MUCH, better then all the paint you get at Wal-Mart. Say for example, Blue Streak, Wild Streak, Buzz Balls, Tork, and some other cheap paint. The only bad thing so far, is the color choices. Where I get my paint, they usually only have yellow and pink fill. Not a bad thing necessarily, but if your a tourney player, and yellow is out, then you might reconsider getting these. However, I brought pink filled Big Balls to a field, and the owner said its ok to use, since it's not "deviant Wal-Mart crap".
I say go for these paintballs, there cheap, good grade of paintballs, and you know you can believe in RPS to bring you good paint.
