Reball, is it what we've all been waiting for?

I was reading my new copy of APG and read the article about reball. Now I had heard of Reball before. They're .68 caliber rubber balls. The suggested Chroning point is 220 fps. They seem to fire the same as paintball do. They can be cleaned, dried, and re-used. Think about it, you could rent your school's gym for a great day of fun. Who knows.. school districts might consider allowing paintballing as a P.E. course. Let me know what ya'll think!

If you use reball instead of paint, isn't that kind of like airsoft?

You have a point, but you could use your mag and I think it opens a lot of new chances.

It would be dangerous in gyms, since they are rubber balls. Running over a bunch wouldn't be a good idea.

I think that reball has been out for well over 6 months and that APG has failed yet another person with their outdated noobie articles.

great for practice but i would rather use regular balls in open play and in tourneys(though reballs would never be used in any anyways)...too many cheaters out there.

Reballs *are* great for practice. I work at an indoor field that has well over 50,000 reballs (We're the largest user of Reballs in the nation). The fact that un-sponsored teams can come into our field and practice with unlimited 'paint' all day is a great benefit to the local lower skill teams. They do shoot pretty well, but shooting paint is still the bread and butter.

It is my understanding that re-balls are to be used for practice only and not against human targets. I have seen the videos for the practice center somewhere in California and the concept is way cool... They would be great for running drills and getting muscle memory for snap shooting and stuff like that. I still don't think I would want to be hit by one though.

6 months? Try like 2+ years. These things were out when I first signed up at PBF, and when I first started paintballing too. It's odd that despite their convenience and how good they are for practice that not more people know about them.

Actually medic with reballs its safe to use on humans. They are very flexible, so its like being hit with a pball that doesnt bust.

Reballs have really been out for years? I know T-balls and those velcro ones (V-balls?) have been out for a while, but they're target only balls. Reballs are nice, although they sting pretty bad if you don't turn down the velocity.

The first time I ever saw one in person or got to shoot it was October of last year, and they said it has ben out for a while, then.

as great/functional/practice worthy as they are, you guys are overlooking the fact that they cost $600 per case thats about 7 cases of paint. in the long run it will pay off to have reballs, but as a back i would rather have 7 cases of real paint than 1 case of reballs. if i can shoot half a case in a game, i dont want to be out on my hands and knees picking up rubber balls from the grass for an hour, i want to go fill my pods up and be in the next game in 5 minutes. see what im getting at?

actually i did the math and $600 is more like 11 cases of paint (at my field anyways) but the reball ad claims once you shoot it 7 times, youre playing for free. i guess they were wrong
