X.O. Industries Spectrum This was my go to practice paint for awhile. It was very cheap and performed rather well for the price! The fill was decent and it only bounced occasionally. I would recommend!

its really oily so you'd have to clean you pods/caddie/hopper of the oil more offend.
the dimples and soft spots make the paint curve, but not THAT much its still useful paint.

Well, the local shop closed 15 minutes early on me last friday, so i was forced to buy field paint for the first time in years.

First time using any XO paint and the first impressions are pretty good.

Shells looked consistently round & dimple-free.
Fill was a decent thickness for the grade (nice, visible yellow).
I've been overboring lately with a .693 CP 2-piece because i've grown tired of lugging a kit around. Accuracy was good enough.

I paid way more than some other people here but i expect that when buying at the field plus it included entry, which was $10 (friday nights are cheaper). So i suppose the case of Spectrum only cost $45.

So far, Spectrum is better than my usual rec grade paint, Karnage Bite, which i must admit wasn't that great the last time i got a case. One of the balls from the case of Karnage was egg-shaped!! Pretty bad quality control on that one, even if that's the only one i noticed to be not round.

Alright...well..this is going to be a rather hard review for me to write considering my team's affiliation with XO, but I feel for the time being I need to get this message across, and contact XO's new ownership with my concerns.

I bought a fresh case of XO paint for $55 which is about $25 cheaper than most low-mid grade paints I buy at my regular field, but the field I got it from is 3 hours away and better funded so their paint prices are cheaper.

Upon first inspection, the ball is very rubbery and oily...almost like the appearance of the shiny rubber small bouncy balls little kids get for 25 cents out of those toy machines in the mall...and the seam was rather rigid and large, making the similarities between the ball and bouncy balls greater. Another similarity is that they both bounce...alot.

It seemed some balls were remarkably brittle, breaking after a 2 foot drop, and others could bounce around a whole field and still be the exact same shape they were when they left the barrel.

Ironically, after my last statement, I have to say that these are the only paintballs my ego 9 has ever chopped or gotten a barrel break with, I have to assume that this was because of the odd seam. Because one good thing I did notice is these paintballs are round, not one odd egg shaped or dimpled ball in the box.

Pro's
  • Round
  • Cheap
  • Most shot straight
  • With a 20 minute acetone bath I think the balls would have a pretty decent shell that's oil free.

Con's
  • Odd seam
  • Thick shell
  • Only balls I've ever chopped/barrel broken with my ego 9
  • Weak fill (the fill was literally skin tone peach..but thick)

I will edit or delete this review depending on the outcome of my next conversation with XO.

NOTE: The ball I was using was blue shell, "orange" fill.

I have used Spectrum for about 5 years. It is a solid, dependable paint that flies straight and breaks on target. It is far better than the average mid-range paint that you will find in many stores/fields. Comes packed in sealed 500 count bags so bring a twist-tie to reseal any bag you don't use up. Personally I would spend extra dollars for Spectrum compared to other mid-range paints.

X.O. Industries Spectrum overall good paint for the price but too many barrelbreaks in my ego7 and my DM8 and the first 500 shots flew horrible. the rest of the box was OK.

overall it is decent paint. My team uses it for practice. it is pretty good, and it doesn't have dimples and has really consistent roundness. It is good for practice paint.
Only real complaint is that it has a tendency to bounce. Had it bounce off a guys lens on his mask before. has nice thick fill and is pretty difficult to whipe
