I'm assuming I bought a bad batch from the field [Forced to buy paint they supply to keep it running] and I'm willing to give it another chance to find a cheaper, better quality brand. I've seen alot of good reviews on this and just astounded how bad the performance was [for me]. I'll try my Redz Pepper stickz and clean/lube my gun better next time around.
You get what you pay for, although sometimes you get ripped off with a bad batch.
WGP Black Magic Pneumatic Autococker
Evelution II w/ Y-board
Crossfire Nitro Tank
One that can shoot through breaks
Very high markability
very VERY Brittle
that also means they dimple easily
Ok, i had a bad experience with this paint, but so did everyone else at the field so......
(its a field that u can only use their paint at)
To start off with teh positives, this was not with my gun, but someone at the field told me that his proto m6 was shooting straight ropes with them. That sounded good considering that i am going to buy a proto m6 soon :)
Also, these have an extremely high markability. When people were hit, it was clear from across the field. Even when one hit the bunker i was by, it splashed me! I tried to wipe it quickly to get it off but i couldn't. errr. I got called out. :(
Now the bads:
The sit in the PMI warehouse for a long time so these things are dimpled like crazy! I didn't find one that wasn't, not even the ones on the top were not dimpled. However, they were all very round, not one egg shaped ball at all.
Since these have high makability and stay on you for the rest of the day. i would expect ot get pretty dirty by the end. I go to throw my clothes in the wash. I take them out, they looked the same, just without the shell parts..... ok, i threw them in the next load. Came out with a little less thickness but was still apparent. 3rd time was the charm. Now i just have dark circles around my jeans.
NOW FOR THE WORST- these things are very Very VERY Brittle!
The bolt in my autococker was hitting them too strong so i had to tinker with the lpr for a while to get it where i could still shoot but didn't break the paint. My evelution II 's proppeler chopped and broke the paint. Not a big deal right? WRONG! the impeller is that flexible silicone thing! For that to chop it is rediculous. Still, evelutions have not been kknown to be the kindest to paint in the shell. The worst was this. To clean the loader i took out the paintballs and poured them into the bag. They broke when they hit eachother in the bag.
They broke when they hit eachother in the bag.
They broke when they hit eachother in the bag.
THAT IS THE MOST REDICULOUS THING I HAVE EVER HEARD AND SEEN!
and no, it wasn't the dirty ones coming out, because i also put ones from my pods into a bag and they broke.
If you have an electronic gun such as a PM6, Bob Long, Ego, etc my guess is that this is the paint for you. THose people had ball on ball accuracy even with the dimples and they broke on their opponents, not mine, but theirs. You just need to have a high end gun to appreciate this paint.
And dont use this with an Evelution II. I had to clean the inside 3 or 4 times that day becaues the silicone flexible impeller was too strong.

Everything that you can get from this case of paint you can get from another for a lower price. the fill is weak and some balls were egg like or had dimples. i did chop a few. The place where i bought them was elling them for a pretty penny and i dont think they were worth that much (it was scheels, some of there stuff is a fair price but they can have some major markups. go to a pro shop.) Overall though the paint wasnt too terrible.
I have used many types of paint, and this seems to be about the worst of the "upper end" paint.
system x nme le, empire reloader b, carleton 45/68 carbon fiber hpa tank,
none. Your best bet to not have these break in the barrel is to not put a barrel on your gun.
breaks in bag, they break in the barrel, wont shoot ANY barrel clean
This is the paint that my team almost always uses. The place we play at sells this at tournaments, and at practices. Frankly, i haven't used worse paint for serious play. (After all nobody uses blue streak paint in tourneys.) There was one time where the team bought premiums and they sucked so bad that after one game, we took them back up front and traded them for stinger paint which worked better. Maybe its just the Atomix Paintball branded ones that suck, but so far, all i know is that the shells of these balls are so thin they will usually break if dropped onto a hard surface from 4 feet. Stay away. Even my teammate's DM6 witth a stainless freak shreds this stuff.
Use marbalizers or All Star paint. I can't in good heart give these a 1 or 2 because they do in fact at least look like paintballs, so it's a 3
The Only *similar* grade of paintball i have used would be X.O Industries Menace which were 10 times better

Anything will work. They shot the same out of my stock piranha barrel then out of my 14" Razzor. I will update once I try them with my Freak.
The first and only the first time I used these they were awesome.
Every time after the first they were horrible.
The first time I used these balls about a year ago (probably longer) I thought "wow these are the best balls ever!" so the next time I went to the field I got more. They curved all over and I couldn't hit anything. So I thought "wow I mustave got a bad batch or somthing" The next 5-10 times I used them they were equally as bad. Tonnes of chops and none flew straight. I wish I could rate higher but for the cost of them it just isnt worth it. They have a thin watery fill. One good thing though, is if you do manage to hit somthing it will break and not bounce off.
If these remained as good as they were when I first used them I would give them a 10 for sure. At the quality they are now however I'll have to give them a 3. This is to reflect the fact that I can get cheaper field paint that shoots just as good and chops less for 2/3 of the price. I have not used them since I got my Freak. Jr so ill change my review once I test them
RPS Rampage->sometimes better (read my review on these)

Allways break on opponent
Breaks in gun
With this paint i break a ball about 1 every 250 shots. otherwise when it hits your opponent you know it, but due to the thinness of the fill you also know he wiped it easily. Shoots straight, and allways breaks. This paint is allways consistent, in the amount of dimples (few to none).
Good paint, consistent in its quality. But you can find better for cheaper

fill is pretty good
THis paint is fairly cheap at our local shop, so I decided to try a case. Was i impressed. They shot straight and acurately consistently. There were no dents and the balls were circular and not oval.The color I got ( black and grey) the fill was a little dull but wasn't to bad.
In conclusion I highly recomend this product to anyone who is looking for good paint at a great price. I would give it an 8.5 but I'll round it up to nine.

Good, Bright Fill
No broken balls in bag
-Good Seams: In the case I had the seams were small or sometimes not even there at all.
-Fill: The fill in these is great. Its a bright pink, thick fill. It wasn't runny, watery , and didn't stain at all.
-No broken balls: In the cases we had the wasn't a single broken ball in any case.
-Decent price: For places that charge fair prices, it's a good quality ball for the price.
-Accuracy: these were very consistent throughout the whole day. Good ,straight, flight pattern.
Chopping at high ROF's: At around 12BPS. these start to chop BAD. With my brother walking his marker up ot started to chop bad, and even with the RT going full auto It started to chop a lot. At lower ROF's there's no problems.
BEWARE: With an APEX this paint does horribly at high ROF's.
At low ROF's this is a good quality paintball. At anything above 12BPS you have a blender.

Break in barrel too often
These paintballs fly straight that is if you can get them out of the barrel, I shot about 300 and alot of them broke. (This was probably because of my Evil Driver barrel but I don'y know). This is a decent rek ball but I wouldnt use them any where else.
You have to try them with your barrel thats the only way to find out if they work for you.
