well it worked great with my stock ion barrel, and my friend was using a boomstick and it worked great so the barrel really doesn't matter for this stuff
-Break on contact
-No breaks in my barrel
-All same size
-Tourney Price ($60)
I wrote a review on the other RPS premium paint but then i saw these so here i am writing another one. theses worked awesome and the went straight every shot and they had such a thick fill i could see the shot across the field, well just read my other review becasue i thought they were the same thing, which i think they are, so i was right YESSSS.
All in all this paint was awesome, worked great and i' definatleygonna get it agian.
Vapour= not as good
Hotbox= not as good
White Box=not as good
Red SP ION
48/3000 PSI PMI TANK
Contract Killer Grips
TechT L6 Bolt
Mini Eclipse On/Off
Medium Bore (will be updated to exact)
This is a GREAT ball. It is extremely accurate and round. The shell wont break in your gun or barrel but will break on someone 7/10 (stomach, legs etc.) If you drop it from 6 feet up it will break first drop, Only quality paint breaks from 6 feet up. The fill is very thick and is impossible to wipe off. The fill color that I got was bright orange/yellow. The shell was a very nice, bright yellow on one side and orange on the other.
I am giving this a 9/10 becuase nothing deserves 10/10 unless its great and cheap. This paint is $65 this isnt really somthing I can afford to play with allways but its on special for 50 so I picked some up.
zap spank tork and chronic
rps rampage and marbalizer
14" lapco bigshot
48/3000 PMI pure energy tank
but, the better the barrel, the better these balls will perform.
have never chopped before, but that could be becuase i've got an A-5
Breaks from long and short distance - but not medium
I have to use these balls because it is what my home field uses.
So far, other than the weakness mentioned above, i have nothing bad to say about it. All of the balls are round, no imperfections, and they dont go all over the place when they come out of my barrel. They follow a straight line.
i'd definitely recommend them.
Try em out

spyder pilot acs with richotte hopper, sticky grips, pure energy psi tank, regulator and evil"the pipe" barrel system
Any will do
Break good on impact
Dont break in gun
Well the course i go to, DMZ uses these balls i personnaly really like em. These balls have never broken in my gun and they always break when they hit an enemy. I find the fill hard to wipe off which is good because you don't want people cheating. I like the balls mostly because there not extremly hard but you can still feel when you get hit.
edit*** i had a horrible break when i was plying so bad i coudnt cock my gun back so this is going to affect my rating im dropping it to 7
It's a great paint for the price, if you've got a few bucks bouncing around and need some paintballs get em.=)

They used to be very good. I did like the fill and consistancy.
Out of round, weak seams, major ball breaks going into the breech. Even manually.
I have used these balls for almost a year. Probably went through more than 30 cases of paint. The last 5 cases were crap. Major breakage, even trying to get them through the hopper to the breech. Using the largest barrel I have the balls continue to break. I manually fed balls through a barrel for sizing. Almost half would not slide through easily. I wrote PMI an e-mail in an effort to inform. No response. Great customer concern? I think not. I am totally turned off on any of their product.
At my local feild we have to use this (well u dont have to but its tha cheapest thay got)
its pretty good paint
i only got a couple of retarded looking ones in tha 3500 rounds we had
so if u want some good paint to shoot get this
Spyder Pilot w / 14" J&J ceramic barrel, expansion chamber
Anything .689 bore
Hard to wipe
Somewhat short shelf life
This is the first paintball I ever shot and I have since tried over 20 other balls and still hold this one in higher esteem than the rest. This ball has a thick shell, but It always breaks on the target and not in your barrel. Durable in transit; I have shot this ball though brush, tree limbs, bushes, and mesh without it breaking in flight. Most of the cons in the bad reveiws are probably due to poor storage, which brings me to my next point: these balls have a shelf life of appx. 3 months once opened unless stored properly. Put them in the refrigerator at 60 degrees f. and they should be fine for ages. The paint is thick and marks well to discourage wiping; get a bright colored ball. I prefer the green/copper ones since they stay somewhat camoflouged in the woods, yet they break neon green.
My favorite ball for years to come. If you haven't already, try this ball!
I give this product a 9 because of the finicky storage conditions.

Similar Products Used:
i have never used a paintball that is this terrible
A lighter wallet
Only one ball broken in the bag
Where to begin, I have used these paintballs twice and I vow to never in my lifetime buy them ever again. I have bought two cases of these and they have both been terrible. This is the event paint for scenarios that I play in they now switched to Marballizer but I was not the fortunate one who got to use them.
Accuracy- These paintballs are full of dimples and poor seems. I had constant swerves even when paint was not broken in the barrel.
Grease?- These were perhaps the most slippery paintballs my hands have ever touched. Think of them as little crisco coated marbles. They were so oily that when I was inserting them in my hopper my hand was red all over the place.
Chopping- This goes along with the accuracy, anyways I had many chops, and it would turn into shooting white paint out of my barrel.
Seems and dimples- I would like to first comment on the dimples because they were huge it was like they had a pencil eraser shoved into them. The seems were not as bad but they were still not up to par.
Im not really sure what else there is to go wrong with a ball but PMI you probably thought of that too.
Please if you value your gun and your sanity, these will drive you absolutely crazy. For the money you could buy X-Ball Bronze or Silver. I dont normally like to post bad review but this one had to said.

Fill isnt very visable
Extremely weak shell
some are oblong
Yea I used these this weekend along with past experiences and they really suck, no joke. So i put these in my empire b and head to the chrono and take a shot and it immediately breaks in my barrel, so i switch barrels and matched the bore correctly and shot again but same thing it just breaks. so after pissing with my stuff for an hour i gave up and stopped wasting my time. This stuffs shell is really crappy it broke in my empire b along with my 2 friends halo and empire, my friends blew paint as well just not as bad. In my past experiences (yesterday being one of them) i just took out my gun to shoot it and the paint is just terrible.
This paint is the worst i have ever used even behind some brass eagles, it would probably work ok in lower end guns though.
I got this paint for easter not to long ago, and i have to say, it is really horrible. I had the greenish yellow fill, and thats what was dripping out of the barrel of my gun.
And to prove it just was'nt my gun, i had a combat 68, rampage 68, and premium mixed together in my hopper, and still, there was only yellow-green paint dripping out of my barrel.
Another thing is that these are riddled with dimples, i counted one and it had about 7 dimples in it. It was horrible, wouldnt shoot straight unless there was absoulutly no wind whats so ever, and then it still pulled off course.
its cheap, but not worth it. Go with something better...
