This paint is pretty good for the price. I have used it 3 times now and have no problems with it. Shoots pretty straight and the balls are always in good shape. Breaks pretty good but not something I would use in a tournament. Overall this is a pretty good pratice paint

We have burned through about 7 cases of this the past few weeks and it has held up in all kinds of tempratures with minimal problems. The balls fly fairly straight and break on target and not in the gun. The fill is a bit watery and they smell nasty in the bags especially when the temprature gets up there, but they are cheap and you are just going to be breaking them on your opponent so who really cares. The paint is fairly light and doesn't perform as well as the more expensive brands. Good for rec play, shooting in the back yard, or the occasional player. If you play competitively...spend the money on a higher quality ball. It is an average ball for a good price.

The quality of this paint is farily nice,no broken balls in four bags,and usually breaks on other players.
If there's a shop that sells hotspot i'd pick up a case or two.
4 out of 5

Hotspot is good for practice as it's cheap but I'd never be caught with them on the field. Like other Nelson paints they are round with no dimples but unlike other Nelson paintballs these tend to make a mess in your hopper/barrels.

I say their good practice paintballs as they are so cheap.
