Monster Balls Bad?

whats the deal with monster balls? theyre cheap and they work for my budget and gun so why does everyone hate them? when i went paintballing last some kid said, "oh you have monster balls? im not playing with you." then, he gossiped to this other kid there about, "those kids have monster balls." and asked my friend "arent you running monster balls?" he wasnt and when he told the kid he didnt believe him and scoffed away.

And when he gets a mild concussion from getting shot in the head with one

HAHAHAHA I've had some funny experiences with these. I used to go to this indoor place that allowed paint from other places. I bought like 3 cases of monster balls from Walmart. I chronoed my gun perfectly but everyone thought I was shooting hot.

Your doing I don't see the point in shooting monsters because aside from the fact that they hurt, they're not going to be very accurate. Just pay a extra 10~15 for stingers.

I honestly have no experience in buying paint. I always just use the leftover paint from the field. I always have extra when I play pump

they have an extra thick shell so they will last forever while sitting on the shelf. unfortunatly that means they do not break on people and they are much harder than normal. a lot of places around be that are BYOP fave a side note of "no monsterball" they are being outlawed in a lot of places due to the fact that they hurt more than normal.

Yeah I love taking a hit and having it feel like somebody threw a brick at me. I just don't get why people buy this crappy paint if you are shopping at Wal-Mart for paint there are less crappier options like Visible Impact or Recon that don't cost much more.

for the same reason people shop at wal mart in the first place, cheap prices, quality takes a back seat when shopping there

When I was using Monster balls, the shells always seemed to split, not really break. When monster balls are dropped from shoulder level, they almost never break. If they do, its always in half.

A good paintball will have its shell look like it has shattered when dropped, or just kinda explode

When you hit somebody and it just splits alittle, its hard to tell if that was a break or a splatter.

Well first of all, that kid is an idiot, he would have had the advantage because of the tendency of monster balls to bounce. I personally have nothing really against monster balls. They are hella cheap, always an up in my book. However the monster balls are infamous for bouncing instead of breaking. If you have a chance, drop a monster ball and a ball from a better brand. You'll see a difference.
