I wouldn't call someone new dumb if they thought that something with "Big" in the name was bigger than something without it. Big Ball was one of the worst marketing ideas for a name ever.

it says right on the box "Not bigger balls... Bigger quality" if you cant read you shouldn't play paintball. Its not in fine print or anything. But if you just hear the name I can see why people would think they're bigger.

yeah, i have the box in my computer room right now because im going paintballing on tuesday! And the sign about explaining that its not bigger balls is right around the bigball sign. And at my local proshop i asked why they didnt carry bigballs and they told me about the name change because of n00b's not wanting to buy something over the standard caliber.
