Pros: Neon Fill, Lot of paint, Rarely Bounces
Cons: Shell is a little too Brittle
Ok, so to start off I love the fill. The fill is this sick neon green paint that is pretty hard to wipe. If you dont like anything else about this paint, just buy it for the fill. And they stuff a good amount of paint in them but it varies from case to case.

About the shell, its really a two way street. I think that this paint should only be used in the weather it was intended for. The shell is alot stronger than other paints when its cold which is great cause I play woodsball with my friends in Upstate New York in the winter it averages around freezing. But when the weather warms up, you should definetly find some better paint. The shell stays too brittle for normal play and you might start blening paint whether its in your hopper or in your barrel.

Overall, I have to say that this paint is great for the colder weather. I think its priced a little too high at 50 but whatever. If you are an all year round woodsball player you are definetly going to want to pick up a couple cases of Polar Ice for the colder months of the year. For speedball players, I recommend you stay away from the paint unless your playing outside in cold weather.

One more thing I almost forgot. This paint is great for the rain. You dont have to worry about it if it gets wet. It will continue to perform just fine. I highly recommend this paint to any and all woodsball players.

I personally do not like these paintballs very much. They look cool ( yellow + silver shell). I paid 80 bucks for these because the paintball place i went to is a rip-off, they actually cost only 60 per case.

I know these paintballs are made for cold weather, but honestly I have some seconds that shoot just as good as these in cold weather. These balls constantly chop cuz the shell is too brittle and they screw up my gun, not only my gun but my friends Tippmans, Spyders, Ions, and even G3's chop alot with this paint.

They are OK but you could save some money and just get cheaper paint for the same quality. They don't allways shoot very straight either, most of the time the balls look like this in mid air

Pros: works great in the cold
Cons: sometimes bouncy
Playing in cold weather is difficult. Period. No paint works perfectly. But, Polar Ice is the only paint I've used over the years in sub 30 degree weather that has managed to make it out of the barrel consistently.

If I'm ever out playing in the cold, this is the paint I'm using.

Overboring can sometimes help in the cold also. Less chance for the ball to bounce around inside the barrel.


Disclaimer: I used to play for a team sponsored by Empire/RPS.

Cons: Price (probably the field though), Breaks, bounces
Think another review had something similar but this paint is horrible in the cold. Not sure how it would work in warm weather but out of a case I had about 20 barrel breaks with a DM 12 with settings for cold weather (thats not including my friends breaks). I had played at another field with paint that also cost 60 dollars and had one break from 2 cases from what I was pretty sure was my own fault.

It was also very inconsistent with accuracy, I and my friends were getting a spread about the size of a large beach ball from 100 -200 feet. Might just be a bad batch but for 60 dollars not good at all. Probably make a good ball to use as a bouncy ball, I was doing a impact test just by throwing these compared to the paint I usually use out of 20 paintballs each 18 broke of my normal paint on impact with random objects (pavement, tree, friend, etc.) of this RPS stuff only 4 broke the res just bounced off.

I don't know if there was a problem during shipping, or while it was sitting around my local paintball store, but these were terrible. Most of the rounds were hard and completely squared off. They wouldn't break at 20 feet, just bounced. Maybe it was too warm here for them, being between 60-70 degrees, or they were too cold overnight (about 40 overnight low) I don't know. Not one would fly straight, either. Yellow/Silver with yellow fill. I'm glad I didn't pay very much for them, they were frustrating all day.

This is actually some of my favorite paint around. the fill is thick, the shells are round. it is designed to work best in cold weather but i would honestly shoot it year round if i could, its a great bang for your buck.
