Thought I would pass on my great experience w/ this company. I got 4 cases of their house paint for $89 on e-bay, free shipping. They arrived, and every single bag had broken paint in it! The box was gouged and dented... Way to go DHL! So I sent off an e-mail reporting the damage that night. Early next morning, they replied that they were shipping 4 more cases 2nd day for no charge! These arrived in perfect shape, and after playing a few games w/ them, I can say I am impressed w/ the paint quality. Price-wise, this is in the monsterball cheapness category, but it is by far a better paint- very hard shell, but breaks almost every time when dropped from 6 feet onto a hard floor. I have not had any barrel breaks after 3 cases. They have some slight dimpling in some, but they fly true. No big flat spots like you usually find in paint that costs less than $25/case. And the fill is very thick and yet easy to wash with water, not the oily cheap stuff. That said, this is not as good as other paint I have used, like Draxxus Gold or Evil, but it costs half as much. Highly recommended for practice and recreational play!

I was thinking of picking some stuff up from orderpb, not paint though.
Is their service good?

They do have good customer service and decent shipping though.
After seeing this post and checking out their feedback I just ordered 4 cases of SHRAPNEL on ebay for $84.99 (advertised for free replacement for any broken paint "If your paint is damaged in shipping, just let us know, and we will replace it FREE!"). I'm curious to see the condtion of the paint when it arrives and the customer service if any are broken.
I recieved the 4 cases of paintballs but unfortunatly, 3 of the 4 cases were bad, they where either deformed, squishy, dimpled, hard, or a combination or these. Not in that good of condition. I emailed for replacements and described the condtion of the paintballs. Yesterday, I recieved the replacements. 2 of the 3 cases had a couple of broken balls but they looked newly broken and I was able to save the remaining paintballs.
Overall, despite some damaged paintballs, I highly recommend them for there excellent customer service and good prices especially with the free shipping. The paintballs were packaged well and it was probably the quality of the paint that caused the breaks (got the cheap paint), between the boxes of paint was lots of large bubble wrap and the cases of paint were boxed vertical (bubble wrap around and between). I'll definatly buy paintballs from them again.
