pretty much any but barrels with same bore size are good
What it says on the box.
Big on markability, accuracy and the other thing
The pink ones have thin fills. hit a tree from 10', marks are barely visible
these are good paintballs. what it says on the box is what they mean except for markability on the pink ones. those dont mark too well. I got a tru flight on my 98 and it doesnt let balls go straight for some reason. for the paintballs themselves, any barrels with the same bore size will be good for sure. I like these and they're cheap for about $25 for 500 or so
I like them alot.
also at the canadian tire I live close to you can also get 1000 something premiums for about $45, but I like the bigball for now.
I'd say a 9 cause of the markability with the pink one, and also my barrel sucks and I'm definately getting a new one.
Great balls if you got a good barrel, I wouldnt suggest a cmi tru flight or thunderpig but anything else will do great.

They are great paintballs for the price you can get 2000 for $31.99 they are very accurate i can shoot a target from 30-70 yards away in a tight 6 inch area. They are more for woodsball because of their hard shell you can use them for speed ball but they wont always break on the person.
Use them mostly for woodsball cause of their hard shell not for speedball cause they dont always break on impact.

Umm.. cool name?
Well... got it cause it had the RPS name on it (newb thought it would be good). only $30 it has to be good. wrong
it was pink fill which was rather thick for that cheap of a paint which is a plus.
i was dissapointed at the highly visible seams on EVERY ball.
it was not very accurate (unlike Empire Engage. awesome paint) and hooked in various directions when i fired it.
i must mention it was probably sitting on the shelf for a while as i bought it because it was winter. then i tested my marker through the winter (it was new had to use it) i used it in one game and was very dissapointed. although my friend hit me with it lol.
Overall it chops, has crappy seams, and hooks like a prize fighter. i will not buy this again
2 cause my friend managed to tag me and it shoots with thick fill.
14" smart parts progressive barrel
20 ounce co2
mine didnt work good at all
Explodes on contact
Ok so i jsut got my vs1 last week and had a half case of nelson hot spot left over. I took it over to my friends house with the stock barrel and it shot great. Later that day i bought a case of big ball which i paid 20 dollars more for. My friends have always used this paint so i thought it must be pretty good. I shot it and it was curving like crazy. I jsut could not get it to shoot straight. It may not be the paint it self but it was a bad size for my barrel. It shot really bad. I ended up having to turn down my velocity really far to even get it to shoot somewhat straight. I went and bought another case of hotspot and it was shooting fine again. I had a ver bad expierence with big ball, it could of been my barrel. I did notice that they shell was very rubbery and flimsey. It was comparrable to the low end paint zap. Very bad shape.
Dont get it. Save yourself 20 dollars and get hot spot.
.688-.691 is the size but cant be for sure becuse i dint recive my ball sizers yet.
Dose not dent
Mostly breaks on impact
Sometimes dose not break on impact.(only happens in winter really)
These are great paintballs. Iv never had an incident were they broke in the barrel or were chopped. The great thing about these is that you can see the paint very well.(yellow fill) Also, aren't very expensive. I get these in walmart for $25.00 for a case of 2000!!! you cant argue with that price for these well made paintballs. The only problem i had was in winter when only a few did not break on impact.(probably froze) Also, I used CO2
These are great paintballs, buy them and you will like them. For the price you cant complain.

Brass Eagle Wild Thing paint which is another wallyworld paint brand.
Viewloader Triton II with custom sniper barrel 9ounce co2 and gravity hopper but i'm hoping to get a Omen 2.0 soon
go to your local store and see what barrel i didn't mesure them.
pain to clean the breaks watery filleasy to wipe.Breaks a lot!Perhaps to cheap.
Well I went to the local field because it was bring your own paint night. [What a ripoff that was!] My friends and I each bought 500 paintballs at wally world. I got wild one, one other friend got big ball and my other friend bought scorch. When we went to the field my friends gave me their paint because they needed to rent a gun. I took it and put it in seprate pods. Well wild one was the cheapest so I used that first. Just fine. Then I used scorch. Just fine. When I used big ball I found ought that most of the balls had broken! And since the walmart was next door they must have been bought broken. It's funny because the guy who bought them is really unlucky and big ball cost the most of all three brands! When I used it almost all the balls where covered in paint and shell! When i put them in my hopper and fired I chopped instantly! The paint would not come off the barrel!
Cheap paint skip it and by wild Thing at least. Or just get diablo paint.
PMI Premium - Much better
Gap - Better

Well...something with a very small bore if you insist on using these
Not spherical = not accurate
I was all out of paint, and the local shop was closed, so I decided to pick up a case of these from Walmart based on the decent reviews here. What a mistake that was -- the case I got was terrible.
I set up a few targets in the back yard and realized immediately how bad these were. Beyond about 50 ft. the path was erratic and unpredictable...same curved left, some down, others went right, and a few sailed over the targets. I'm just glad I didn't actually try to play with these.
Knowing that this was certainly due to the paint quality based on previous experience, I grabbed a statistical sampling and took some measurements with calibrated calipers.
Around the ball seam, nearly everything was exactly 0.682. However, turning the ball 90 degrees and measuring across the axis normal to plane of the ball seam, the sample mean was 0.660. Out of round by 0.022!
Suspicions confirmed, I won't be buying these anymore.
Don't buy these if you actually plan on aiming at anything.

Any large bore (.691) barrel

Big Balls are exactly what the name implies -- B-I-G. Fuggin' huge, in fact. 70% fit well in a Freak .691 insert. The other 30% are either unbelievably huge (.693) or average (.689).
30% variability seems high to me, but hey what do you expect? These are inexpensive paintballs, so i assume inconsistent shooting is normal. Just remember that with this paint, no matter what barrel you use, you can expect about one shot in three to fall short:
70 / 100: right size; low friction, low blowby
15 / 100: too big; high friction, nominal blowby (high friction = low muzzle velocity = short shot)
15 / 100: too small; nominal friction, high blowby (high blowby = low pressure = short shot)
Big Ball is a good buy for the spray-n-pray shooter (who can carry plenty of ammo); you can buy lots of it without taking out that 2nd mortgage.
For shot-to-shot consistency or limited-ammo play, seek a more consistently sized paintball.

Something rifled makes a huge difference with accuracy before they start breaking.
Breaking on impact.
I was in a rush and decided to give these a try one time since I'd heard good things about them. One time is all it will ever be though as I was helpless when I had these in my hopper. They were acceptably accurate while I was using my Armson barrel but they started breaking in it and I had to switch to my J&J S2. Once I did that the balls kept curving in random directions and it was nearly impossible to hit my opponents. Even then when I did I didn't get any breaks. Maybe this was just the box I got and most are good, but I'm Mennonite (no offence but we're cheap!) and I still ended up just throwing away about 700 of the 1000 rounds I bought.
Price = 7/10
Reliability = 8/10
Accuracy = 3/10
Breaks on impact = 0/10
Fill = 8/10
If you want cheap get the Wild Streak, if you want something usable get RPS Premium or something.
I picked up these paintballs from walmart just to try them. When i opened the box after i got home the paintballs were very oily. I didn't let them dry and i decided to try them. They performed pretty well shooting against a tree but when i had a friend over and i played him a couple didn't break on him. These paintballs could be better if the shell wasn't as thick and it had a better fill.
