Diablo Formula 13 This is great practice paint! Not sure I would use it for a tournament, but it's even good scrimmaging paint. Good thick fill and brittle enough.

I bought a few cases of this for our team practice. These are among the worst paintballs I have ever had the misfortune of shooting. I had them bouncing of steel 55 gallon drums at 6 feet at 280fps. When we did have a ball break the shell would crack just a little bit and a little bit of the thin fill would ooze out. The fill is about the same consistency as Monster Balls but with a little brighter pigment. The outside of the shell feels a bit like plastic. The paint has a bit of oil in the bags that gets in your marker if you don't wipe it down first and they tend to stick together when the weather gets warm.

Pros: Great Reliable Paint
Cons: A slighty stubborn shell
Price is based upon a box (2000 paintballs)

Appearence: Its two toned (Blue and purple if I remember correctly)

Performance: Ok, its very good paint, except that it has a small number of the paintballs that doesn't want to break. I hit an opponent from mid to back field, and didn't break. But got him out because of the 5~7 paintballs that followed.

Reliability: Very consistent paint from batch to batch.

Value: It's worth the money, but it can get a bit expensive at times when you lack the money.

You could pay another $10 to garuntee that a ball wont break, but i have been shooting this paint my whole life and they always break when i need them to. For the price they are almost as good as premiums. My #1 choice of paint all the way.

Pros: Few paintballs had dimples, fill was bright
Cons: Shell is not brittle, somewhat runny fill
Appearance:
The paintballs I got were blue and purple shell, with a bright pink fill. The shell is shiny and is somewhat appealing.

Performance:
After I got these paintballs, I decided to test out how brittle they were. I threw a few out of my room, which is on the second floor of my house, and 3 out of the 4 bounced. The one ball that did break didn't shatter, but cracked in half like a monsterball would. On the field, these paintballs were accurate and you could see where the balls were going, which is a . Major problem with these paintballs is if you are playing in hot weather, they will not always break. I shot at the startbox from about 10 yards away, and a few of them bounced off the plywood.

Reliability:
The paintballs are accurate for their price, but the shell doesn't seem to break apart, they just cracked open. They were still accurate in the hot weather, but the hot weather also contributed to very many bounces, even off trees and plywood.

Value:
$35.00 is fairly cheap, and for mid range paintballs, they are good for rec-ball or just a weekend of light practice. I would not recommend using this paint in a tournament or in "hardcore" practices.

Overall:
For any rec-baller looking for a mid-range brand of paint, this would be a choice to consider, but I would not recommend this to frequent players/tournament players. The biggest downside I faced with these paintballs was the toughness of the shell, but if the shell was more brittle, these would perform on cue with high end paint such as DXS Bronze, Mid-Evil, etc. For more veteran paintballers, I would deffinately recommend higher grade paint, such as the DXS series, or any brand of evil, but for anyone else who doesn't play as much, these are an okay choice. Avoid seconds-paintballs at all costs. If you think you're better off getting 2 cases of seconds over 1 case of higher grade paint, you are wrong. There is a very slim chance that you will get seconds that are worth spending the money on, but better paint= a much, much better day of play.
