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.
