Reballs vs Velcro balls/others

I have some extra money in my paypal and I was thinking of ordering some reusable paintballs to mess around with. There are two things im wondering.
1.Are reusable paintballs harder on the marker, if so which one is less harmful?

and 2.Which ones are higher quality/shoot better.

Thanks

Must be nice to have any 'extra' money around lol.

If you have to pick, reballs are the more popular choice as they are similar to regular paintballs. I don't think they are hard on the marker at all but some hoppers such as the rotor may have a problem with lading them due to being sort of smaller than normal paintballs.

What he ^^^ said. Back in the day there was a huge debate here about which were better, reballs, z balls or those velcro things. If I remember correctly the general consensus was that reballs were the best. Also, don't believe they'll hurt your barrel or loader any, unless you just don't clean them and get crap mixed in with them.

I've only shot reballs and didn't have any trouble with them loading (they are smaller than regular paintballs) and never any roll outs. They do hurt like an SOB though so make sure to turn your rof down when using them!

reballs are probably the better choice. i have rufus dog t-balls (which are similar to the z balls) which are durable since they're practically rubber bouncy balls (big no-no to shoot them at people lol) but since they have a little weight to them which slows the hopper down a bit when feeding them. reballs are lighter so the hopper can feed them as fast as a regular paintball and they're safer to shoot at people. the down side is i heard that reballs are likely to get brittle and break after so many uses (still they have a decently long life)
