What's the difference?

My friend and I are interested in making a little reball field. We were wondering what is the difference between Re-balls and Rusballs? Please state all similarites and differences below.
Thanks,
John

If you search you might be able to find it but since im already typing why not just tell you.

rusballs claim to be reeballs, they arnt. They dont even feed through your hopper they get jammed. They dont shoot out of the gun. So they may look like reeballs taste like them and even smell like them but they arnt reeballs. So just buy reballs they maybe be more expencive but they are accually working reeballs.

Now if i can find a video of them compairing the 2 i will.

ok well that guy is rong i have rusballs they shoot perfectly fine thru my friends wrath, shocker, ego, angel 05 speed, and a dm4.( and im not lying)
All u have to do is lube the ball with real paintball paint. ya the joy division made a video were they never lubed the ball and tried shooting it thru their gun but didnt work. There is a video of diablero ( creator of rusballs) shooting thru liek 6 different markers( the rusballs). Rusballs arent as good quality as reballs but are alot cheaper( 20 bucks). Tehy are 13 us shipped per 50 rusballs. ( anycolors and now has glow in teh dark).SO thats 130 for 500 of them. Reballs are 150 for 500 but better quality. Personnally i would use rusballs if your looking for a cheaper prices and kant spend as much. If you can spend the mula get reballs a deff. Also might wanna check out the new might reballs. But personnaly i would go with reballs just becuase i own them and dont feel liek relubing everytime. But there is nothign wrong with rusballs just need to be lubed and not be out in the sun all day long

Do you lube real paintballs? Exactly. Ruballs suck. You shouldn't have to lube anything you shoot through your gun. Just get some Reballs, and they'll pay for themselves.

paintballs are naturally oily, rubber isnt. The people in the videos are hardcore biased, its Joy division, who is sponsored by reballs.

Im in no way saying ruballs are good, i havent used them. But i would look for people who have actually used them. Tons of people on here will say they have used them, but havent. The Mighty balls however are very good for teh money.

Rusballs are just reballs that need one or two paintballs for lubrication.

I've used both, you really do have to lube rusballs, which makes them pointless because it will get all over your hopper and everything, you would be way better off spending a little more for reballs

If you have to oil anything you shoot through your gun, it'll gunk everything up. With Reballs, you don't have to. They shoot great without lube. Paintdude171 knows what I'm talking about and what I'm trying to say.

Reballs work great, dont have to be lubed just wash'em and dry them.

Rusballs also work good, but you have to lube them to prevent jams.
If properly lubed (NO OILS needed) they wont leave any residues in your hopper or barrel.

Besides from the lube thing the only real difference is the price.

Here you can see the vids of the Rusballs
Rusballs Videos

Thanks

I've heard about people needing to lube up normal reballs as well... you're talking about ONE PAINTBALL per FIVE HUNDRED re/rusballs... I'm sure there's that much if not more natural oil in a bag of real paintballs. I can't tell you if reballs really are or are not better than rusballs, but if you're whinging about a little OIL in your PAINTBALL GUN, you need to rethink being in the sport.

so all you have to do with rusballs is oil them a little bit, so all you have to do is take a minute before everygame and oil the bals on your hopper and pods, how hard could that be?

There's no need to lube Reballs at all. Also, I don't want any of the excess lube getting in my hopper, feedneck, on the eyes, and in my barrel. It's more than the natural lube on paintballs.
