Blaze- (Border Wars III) Pink fill, weird Orangish shell, no breaks in the bags. A few had dimples but overall not bad paint. The paint flew as straight as can be expected. Over all Thumbs up.
Marbs- (Paint for big games) What can I say, who doesn't like marbs? Pricey but Thumbs up.
PMI Big Ball-(My standard paint) I've shot both the black shell and the yellow shell and haven't had problems with either one. As far as bang for the buck these are worth the money.
Heavy Metal- Good paint although rather large in diameter. If you have a small bore don't buy these.
Zap Seconds- Purple shell, pink fill. Ther are seconds for a reason and they do stain. Thumbs down.
Blue streak- The worst paint I have ever shot. I'll leave it at that.

RPS/PMI Super Swirl - Pretty good, available at wal-mart, great for weekend play and cold weather only comes in one color shell/fill though
X-ball (all grades) - Love this stuff, bronze is like $40 a case, and it's great for practice paint, silver is $50 and tournament grade, gold is $60 and rivals high grade tournament paints
Zap Chronic - Great fill and shell, but for tournament paint I was disappointed
Steel - Great stuff, has a very...unique smell
Zap Tork- Pretty good, smells nice, tastes like cough syrup
Zap Primer - Thick shelled, better for cold weather, good mid grade
Zap? Rec/Big ball - It's just that, Rec grade and BIG, just buy better paint, it's worth it
Nelson Anarchy- Alright, but I was slightly disappointed
Gameface/DXS Scorch - For something made by Draxxus, I was very disappointed, plus only one color shell and fill that I've seen
Blue/Wild streak - if you're desperate...I will never use this crap again
Heavy Metal - same as the streak, worthless
White Box/Seconds - If you need cheap paint to make a demo vid, or show your friends how fast you can shoot, I wouldn't use this stuff for normal play, make sure you know which company it's coming from, it may be staining paint.

Over all good Rec ball paint for the price, I think I will be switching from Big Ball to these for "fun" games.

CORE- No idea. Bought it on sale at Dunhams. Re-usable container, not a saving grace. But I was able to shoot a buddy behind a tree with a real nice curve shot
X-Balls- Very nice, especially for the price
Draxxus Blaze- Not bad, I'd buy it again
Blue/Wild Streak- My kids don't know the differnce. Yet.
Scorch- Hmm, kinda hard shell. Little dissapionted, and a little sore
Tippmann Werks Balls- Nice soft shells, no breaks in guns, fly straight, bounce too often though
Posted 22 August 2005 - 03:11 PM
pmi menace- only one color but seemed to work fine. i didnt notice a diff from the premium will buy again
pmi super swirl- decent alot of breaks but its not brass eagle so i guess its ok
empire fule- again one color. nice design. a little pricey but seemed to work well if i have to i will use
tippmann werks- it use to be good... me and some friends bought a 5 cases from dunhams and were very upset. lots of breaks. i donno about this stuff
draxuss midnights- decent. had a few breaks and a few curves but all in all it was ok. if its all we had id use it
rps- before they combined with pmi i think. nice paint round rough shell would use again
brass eagle afterburners- good if you are throwing your paint. dont buy it

Big Ball- Cheap, Short Shelf life, snot looking fill, runny fill, pretty accurate though. $40 at most stores. Still pretty good paintballs 7 out of 10
PMI Premium- A little expensive but highly effective, Bright fill, nice shell, thick fill, accurate, and easily found. $47 per case in most places. 9 out of 10
Winchester Paintballs- A good comapany but, bad paintballs. Spyder victor works good in it but, my tippmann 98 hates these things. They are cheap (like $17 for 800), However runny fill, can hardly tell if you got hit or if you got someone. Highly dimpled shells 4 out of 10
Zap Rec. Paint- Cheap, cool re-usable bucket, a little bit accurate, however they don't work well in rain and have been know to curve at times. Dark fill and sometimes a dimpled shell. 6 out of 10
Afterburners- Bad paint, they do spirals and fly far away from your target. Bounce alot. DON"T BUY THESE 2 out of 10 at least they exited the barrel
Draxxus Dusk- Cheap, accurate, bright fill, thick fill, great seams. Only down fall is that they are brittle so ***flatlines stay away***. 9 out of 10
PMI Super Swirl- Avalible at Walmart these are pretty good but, have only one snot like fill. About $13 for 500 or $22 for 1000. Like i said, ok but not great. 8 out of 10
Draxxus Blaze- Very accurate and a nice thick and bright fill. Price is high though but, that what you pay for when you want good paint. I highy suggest these. 9.5 out of 10

infernos, and big no no for flatlines. alot of oblong balls and several breaks, would never use that stuff again.
druxxus hellfire the best i have used so far, will stick with those paintballs.
evils-yellow shell. work ok. probably wont use them again.
druxxus blaze worked well for my gun setup.
xball never had a break are pretty good for flatline users i used the silver. i would use them again.

-Small bore, I used my .684, insert.
-No dimples, and paint was in good shape.
-Was really cheap from Wal-Mart
-Super thick shell. The shell on these was so thick that they bounced all over the place. The guy I was playing against at one point called himself out after I bounced three off of him in less then a minute. This paint would work well if the cold when paint becomes brittle but in the summer its shell is just to thick.
Over all for sumer use I give this paint a thumbs Down

Allstars- Very similar to marbs. Not quite as hard but good fill and small seem. Also a little larger bore. Almost always breaks on target though.
Diablo Heat-For the price its good paint. Had no issues in my J&J barrel.

SCORCH-This paint worked great in my Alley Cat, chopped a few in a model 98, and just a little big for an MR1 but still worked great. VERY visible fill but they hurt and bounce quite often. Overall this is good paint.
JT TACTICAL (woodlannd Camo)-This was a perfect size for the MR1 but chopped ALOT in the model 98. This stuff flew very straight and it was pretty accurate. The only problems were that I could not see where they were flying, neither could opponent either though, and the fill is not very visible at all. It would be hard to use this stuff when you are playing against a cheater.
I have only played paintball twice at my friends house so these are the only paints that I have tried. I am soon going to try Bigball in the Model 98 though.
