Ive had only bad luck with monster balls. Though i rarely get a break in my barrel, the same is sadly true for when i shoot somebody. the 1/100 dimpled balls comment is more like 1/10, and they fly poorly (again, just my experience with them). ive had much better luck with scorch, for not paying much more. just my 2 cents

info about monster balls good not great they are small(.65625) most barrels are (.6875).


Question...

How is it possible that you have the Monster ball measurement of a .65 even?

All paint is a size of at least .680, anything smaller, such as a .65 measurement would be rediculously small in a barrel that has a bore size of .683 even, and that is the smallest bore size I can think of at the moment for a barrel.


About the Monsterballs though, I have used these and SuperSwirls as they are cheap and do work pretty decent for your recreationla type play with friends. During a game I wouldn't be so quick to pick up a case of these though, but for the casual play they work just fine.

They're smaller than my .688 back though. :\

What you gotta do when buying those is ask the person behind the counter to open up the boxes before you buy them. Also pick the one's in the back of the shelf due to those being the newer ones. When you "shelf" items, you put the newer stock in back and sell off the older stuff first. Always ask to look before buying paintballs even if their 80 dollar premium stuff from a proshop...

Monster balls are small, too small for my 98c. They don't fly straight at all and they are very dimpled and inconsistent. I would give them a 4/10 being very generous. They only got points because they're cheap and they work (kinda).

For the price they work decent. Good for a practice day so you don't burn through to much money. Have a real problem with them breaking on target, but absolutely no problem with them breaking in the barrel. Accuracy isn't that great, but that's why I said use them for practice/casual play, not tournaments where your shot really counts.

I usually use Zap but Monster Balls are a good cheaper paint to use. Heck i used both today and they seemed to work pretty well. I sometimes use it on my A5 and it never seems to curve too bad. Unless one breaks in the barrel....then im screwed. Its got a very runny paint and is very easy to wipe off. Scortch is also a very easy paint to wipe off. Zap never comes off yer durn clothes. I give Monster Balls an 8 out of 10

For walk-on play, I love Monsterballs. They are decent, have never had a barrel break (and I have shot a ton of them through my A-5) and best of all they are cheap. When it comes scenarios I go with Marbs.
Here is the back of my pick-up after 3 weekends of walk-on woodsball

My friend has monster balls. One time we were playing in his backyard (shooting targets) using Monster balls on his Spyder. So far, no ball breaks, but they left white marks on the cement floor.

EDIT: i played last week with them, and i'm not sure why they didnt do this before, but they are very small, or my barrel is just very big (a stock diablo mongoose barrel), and they didnt go as fast, far, or as accurate.

yes they are verry small i found in a case of 2000 about 1500 of them are smaller than a stock 98c barrel.

but they don't break much,i shot about 1000 in a day and only 1 broke i can say for a fact i won't buy them again

EDIT:i noticed today that mine have a flat spot in about 3 places on each ball although i do have an old bag.



with all do respect:

i bet you got a little startled at that title didn't you...
well anyways, i bought a case of monster balls from wal-mart for, how do you say 30 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!
that is a good frekin deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
some of the paintballs have little flat spots on them from being pressed hard against the case, but that only happens like 1 in 100 so i dont care.
it's bright blue so i can very, VERY easily see where i am shooting, but they can also see where i am shooting from, so it evens out.
it is decently consistent accuracy wise, with 50 or so balls curving off to the right just a tad.
and the birght yellow fill that splatters all over the opfor is hard to just wipe off, and is very easily seen, so now more bonus-balling or paintchecks :) .
for the 30 bucks i spent for this paint, it was so totally worth it. i reccommend for the broadsword or hammer who isn't usin a flatline.

monster balls aren't the best....they don't break like they should and it is hard to see they paint when the splatter. a better choice at wal-mart for the same price the the ZAP! balls. they have a really nice orange fill, break great, and easy to see.

monster balls are only good for like practicing at your house like i use them for

Don't use them in hot weather, they will melt in your hopper and pods very badly, so bad that they won't feed. So they may be okay in cool weather but not in the heat.
