I have never given an item a pure 5-star rating. I genuinely believe this product deserves it.

I bought these at Wal-Mart for $20 (2000 balls), expecting quality that matched the paint's cheap price tag. Thankfully, I was incorrect. Initially, I was pleasantly surprised to discover no breaks in the box. I ripped open the bag, filled up a pod, and dumped it promptly into a generic gravity-fed hopper. I shot around a dozen shots at trees distanced 20 and 40 yards respectively. Not only did every shot hit its mark, but it did so in exceptional fashion. The break was clean and very thick, very bright. Each ball followed a similar path. Perhaps I had just gotten lucky?

I unloaded the rest of the hopper into the the trees and found a similar result. I had found a gem of a paintball brand, tucked away in a quiet Wal-Mart shelf. The overwhelmingly positive reviews on here suggest this was not a fluke: these are quality paintballs.

I would recommend Visible Impact for any occasion. I would also advise you to be careful. This is still only $20 paint, and due to Wal-Mart's tendency to shelf items for a very long time, checking the shipment date is essential. I also recommend tearing the box open and inspecting the bag inside for breaks.

Positives:
+CHEAP!
+Consistent break
+Consistent trajectory
+THICK, BRIGHT pink break

Negative
-When the box runs out. Actually, nevermind, the paint is only $20.

Pro's:

I pay around 20 bucks per case for these. They have a bright pink fill that is thick enough not to wipe but easy to clean. They break every time I hit somebody. Have had no bounces. They seem to last a long time before getting old and dimply. about 3 months. Have a medium bore size of .688. They shoot straight and have a barely visible seam and no dimples with consistent size. Made by procaps. Have been used in crappy spiders and tippmanns as well as a dm7, 3 mini's, protege, a few cockers, and an ego 7 without chopping or barrel breaks. Xball certified! The only ones I have seen are yellow and red shells with pink fill or red shell and pink fill. There may be others I do not know.

Con's:

I have used these in about 30 degree weather and they sucked! IT may have been cooler. IT was cold enough to snow so idk. They broke in my pods while running and in my hopper and gun(invert mini) Same thing with the other people using them with there high end and low end markers. Made the whole day suck! other guys using frostbite worked well but did not always bust.

Conclusion:

These are great! as long as you buy them in the 200 round pods for $2.50 a piece you can get 2000 of em for around 20 bucks! Even if you have to buy them per case they are only like 38 bucks. Better than draxxus dust or midnight, Rps stingers or anything in that price range! I would even say tournament grade! I've had them bust at very long range as well. Does not bust in your gun. Very awesome quality and price. Especially for practice or even a non-pro tourny! Amazingly accurate. Awesome pink fill. Up there with other xball paints and marbs. I have used them in long range and short. Forest and speed ball. They work great! available at walmart. (I know its walmart but check and see if there is dust on top of them. If there is than don't get them because they MIGHT be old. I have not found any with dust on them or bought them with any broken balls inside of them) I could go on and on about these just go get em Even if you don't believe me it is so cheap u might as well try em out! Just don't use in below freezing weather. The only time they have done bad for me!

9/10 because they do bad in freezing weather. But hey I am in Texas ha!

Visible Impact is very good paint for the money. For 5 dollars more than Monster Balls you're getting 10x better paint. It breaks very often, and has a nice, visible fill. The best part is that it's sold at Wal-Mart, making it very easy to get. I would highly recommend this for rec and practice use.

The best thing about Visible Impact, is that it is sold at Walmart. Now, you're probably thinking - "Pfft. Walmart paint? Yeah right." Well. That isn't entirely true for Visible Impact. It IS Walmart's best paint, and is actually pretty decent. If I'm looking for paint under $40 a case, this is a great choice, plus... I save money on gas by driving 5 minutes to walmart, instead of 15-20 to my local shop.

Overall - Its fairly cheap, sold at Walmart (a plus) and breaks on "impact" with a BRIGHT, thick fill. 4/5 starts for me!

Visible Impact is the paint that effectively replaced monsterball at Walmart. If compared directly to the paint that it replaced you would notice that the two paints are worlds apart.

First off, Visible Impact (VI) is available in three grades which basically amount to rec, practice, and tourney levels. Each level is suposed to have a varience in shell strength and markability. However after trying all three the practice and tourney level are about the same shell strength and fill. What does this mean to you? Well, it basically saves you an extra 5-10 depending on the case size that you are looking at purchasing.

The shape of the balls are surprisingly round. This is a nice feature as most places that have paint sitting on shelves are normally dimpled and oblong. Knowing that you can get round paint from a mega store is pretty good as it gives you an option in case you forgot to buy paint during the week at your local proshop.

Overall this paint is really good if you forgot to pick some up at your proshop, or if the proshop opens late on the weekends and you want to get a full day of balling in. Just remember that not all walmarts are createdvequal and my Walmart may be run and stocked differently than yours.

I play in the woods with just a few friends and we have been mostly been using cheap paint from Wal-Mart and K-Mart. The last two times I have played I have used Visible Impact. For only $7 more than monster there is a BIG difference. The shells do not get dimples like monster does and break better. I notice the difference in accuracy the most. I will continue to play with these unless they go up in price.

accurate, bright fill, and affordable describes visible impact. i got recgrade paint (visible impact) and i dont regret it 2000 rounds for 29.99!!! the con about visible impact is that its sold at walmart...thats a con because it should be sold at paintball shops i mean like everyone should know about this paint!

and if you play pump and shoot only 500 rounds a day...i believe 500 rounds is like 9-12 dollars. but i would invest in 2000 rounds so i can play a hole month (since i go like once a week) due to not having a job because of my age

Alright, to get good paint for under $40 is awesome, to get good paint with no eggs or dimples in an entire case for under $50? That's a miracle! These are seriously the most consistently shaped and sized paintballs I've used at this price point. they break every time for me when shot, but never in the gun. The fill is super thick and bright, very hard to wipe. One thing that drives me nuts with cheaper paint is when the shells are super greasy, not these! they are slick but have no oily residue on the shells at all. Everyone should try these out at least once, just know that the bore is a little smaller, maybe .685-.686.
