Kind of reminds me of wiffle balls.

Are those still around, or am I old?

Great idea for indoor play! If they have just enough velocity to carry a decent distance and be fairly accurate this could be perfect for fields who want to keep the mess away, but don't want customers dealing with the pain of reball. Make them glow in the dark and cosmic paintball games would be a blast!

Yes. Except now hipsters play with them ironically.

Wanna test?

Looking for a few good beta testers...

Small batch available. Can ship two of these printed prototypes to a few testers. Let me know if interested.

Additionally there is Ballistic Test Data posted here:
http://atomicpickle.industries/

I used chronographs to compare these with paintballs, reballs, and even Nerf projectiles for fun with some surprising results.

Interesting. Paintballs seem to vary in size, but not in weight. NERF darts, too.

How accurate are your ATOM6s?

I've always wondered if dimpled paintballs (like those NERF balls) are more accurate? They would certainly travel farther based on identical starting conditions.

ooooooooooohhh These look nice. I wonder if they produce the enough back-pressure to not hurt the guns. If the gun handles the blast the same way it would when dry firing there could be some players potentially damaging their equipment.

Really interesting concept. Did have a couple questions though. As others have asked, what sort of accuracy are you getting out of these compared to a regular paintball?

Also, how durable are these? Without actually being able to hold them and test them, it seems like they might not be able to withstand much of a beating. If they can only be shot once or twice before breaking are they still a better alternative to reballs?

Not bashing your product in any way, just curious.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
