as far as i know, they are crap. if walmart still sell them, though, i have had no problem with big ball. in about 10 cases worth, had only 4 breaks, and those were in freezing conditions.

Try your HARDEST to stay away from ANY wal-mart paint. It is hard, brittle, never breaks if it is hard enough to make it outta your barrel, dimply, oily from breaks in the bag, need I go on?

WalMart has paint that comes from the ProCaps factory (Draxxus pain is ProCaps), and anything from them is of at least decent quality.

They might have procaps, but they leave there paint sitting in a warehouse for months to even a year just sitting there.

i personally have used the monster balls and strykers. i have had no complaints,and no chopped balls, a couple of bounces. but all in all they were good for the $28.00 price tag.

But you've never used any good paint before, so I wouldn't expect you to know any better.

whats with alot of you haters in this forum? i am here to play not brag. i was just saying, monster balls are ok, if prepped by your youtube videos. you seemed like a layed back guy, but i guess not. i play to let off steam, and not to bring on stress. they are not bullets, but little balls of paint! send me a box of good paint so i know what it is to use the good stuff.

Paint gets too changed by weather for shipment, or else I would. Just spend the extra money and buy actual paint and you'd know. Monster Balls are weapons, not paint.

The only problem with walmart and most of these big chain stores is that their paint has generally sat a lot longer then what you will find at your field or local pro shop. What that means is it won't break as well and with cheaper paints will dimple and lower accuracy.

it depends on what you're doing with the paint...
if you're just looking to play rec woodsball with your friends or doing some drilling in your backyard by yourself then you don't really care if every ball is perfect, then the walmart stuff is fine-and cheap(er). if you are serious about paintball and want to win and be competitive about it then you can spend twice as much money and get high quality paint...it all depends wht your game is
