Okay, I am on a quest.

I need a paintball that fits these requirements:
  • MATTE/ROUGH SURFACE (the less smooth the better)
  • BIG (.69X)
  • QUALITY (spherical, good seams, etc.)
  • TOUGH SHELL (not too important)

What have you guys got for me?

Well on AO some guys were saying that a rough surface would have less drag (some weird fluid dynamics stuff). For a paintball, less drag means more range. Greater size means greater mass, which also means more range, as well as, I think, less perceptability to turbulence. A tough shell means it can stand a smaller bore without breaking in the barrel. My guess (I won't call it a theory because it's not proven) is that the best way to fire a paintball is with a small bore that hugs the ball pretty tight. It doesn't need to seal, just tighter than what most people consider a good bore match.

I will check out that proto teddy K, thanks.

I do not know of a paintball that fits those requirements but I do remember reading one of Tyger's stories about a particularly heavy brand that he used. He said that he was able to out-range other players by 20 feet or so(my memory is a bit fuzzy on the exact distance).
