If you think marbs are too expensive buy super swirls, i know wally world paint, but there made by pmi (says rps(?) but if you look at the coperate writy/place/list/thing it says pmi) and i think they're marbs, just in a generic packaging. I havent shot em yet (cant fill my CO2 because my parents wont take me because i have F's, cant drive because my parents always have the cars and my friend always at practice for hockey, track, etc..), but they look exactly the same as marbs, besides they seem very good quality with an almost non existent seem. Just make sure to get the box opened to check for breaks, i was lucky, i thought to go back to the sporting goods counter to do just that. The box i was going to buy each bag (it was a 1000 box) had at least 10 breaks, the bottoms were filled with paint, the next box had a few breaks but the paint was anceint, all hard and the paint from the breaks was dried up, lol!. next box had like one or two breaks but the loose paint had been mixed all over every single ball from the horrible stocking. Finally got a box that was good; side note they only had 5 boxes of super swirl.
I agree with you about this. The Super Swirls are very similiar. They have what appears to be the same shell, but the fill is thinner. I shot Super Swirls and Marbs back to back and found that the Marbs shot straighter (not much, but you could tell) and the fill was almost as thick (thick enough) even though the Super Swirls fit my barrel better. They are a GREAT alternative to Marbs.
That said, if you want the best, go with Marbs. If you're just out shooting with your friends or in a walk-on game save yourself some cash and get Super Swirls. You'll shoot less with the Marbs (hey, if you can hit a guy with one or two shots, why shoot more) but you'll save $$$ with the Super Swirls.
