I got one thing- weight. So far, all the weights mentioned are on the lighter side of balls currently in production. Lighter weight will increase sensitivity to crosswinds, and reduce the range.

Here's a potential thing- If these rounds hit bare skin and break, will they behave more like First Strike rounds, or Paintballs (assuming the same terminal energy).

Aside from those two things- they're great.

Hardness does not equate to brittleness. Did you break the shell and notice it was brittle or only noticed it was hard?

I would like to see a wet target hit. I would like to see a real 'wipe' attempt. I would like to see hit comparisons using various named paint over the entire range of quality and price. I would like to see average weights.... and if they do in-fact have a measurable effect on accuracy.

Even if it's crap I have to agree with Bryce. The target customer for this stuff is fields not players. Shelf life, temperature, cheaper than traditional paint to produce, easy to clean. All of those are massive benefits to fields not really players.

Since >90% of paintball players are ignorant to gear data and only last a couple years anyways, it could shoot like white-box left in the sun and still dominate the market.
