A lot of paint made by Brass Eagle is that way. "Demon" paint is also quite similar. When they are fresh they shoot just as well as any other paintball. The problem comes from where cheap paint is sold. Monster Balls are usually sold in places like Walmart where there's little turnaround. On top of that the paint sits in un-conditioned trucks for long periods of time. The personnel at such places also don't know about rotating the paint every so often and keeping it fresh.
Brass Eagle is aware of this. A lot of people say cheap paint breaks a lot. It's usually the opposite. Companies that sell Walmart paint know it's going to be sitting for awhile. They also know it's likely going to be shot out of equally junky markers - so they make their paint with rather strong shells to prevent breaks. The material they use to make their shells gets softer over time. Instead of getting brittle like most paints do with age they get rubbery and malleable. The result is a rubber bullet.
Monster Balls when they are fresh aren't half bad, but that is rarely the case.
