Reballs Velocity vs Regular Paintballs

Definitely the best! The others are crap to tell you the truth. The worse very well used reballs are almost still better than the Z-balls.

The glow in the dark ones are one of the first version, you'd have a hard time finding them.

I shoot into a large box with a blanket draped over and slopping to the back interior of the box. This directs the balls down. The remainder of the blanket is rolled up in the front of the box to trap roll outs. Basically it's shaped just like a bullet trap.

I was just going to take a picture, but it looks like my wife claimed my box.

to reduce the friction (rubber is less viscous than gelatin) I like to roll my reballs around in margarine. Or if you have an agitated loader, just throw a chink of butter in there: it'll spread around.

no mayo jokes?



And I agree on the part about making sure they're the good reballs. I bought some kind of JT rubber practice ball things...completely unuseable, even after trying alittle oil on them, butter, breaking paintballs into the hoppper to lube up the balls, KY...hell I tried everything....actually KY worked somewhat decent.

We have been using the Warrior brand ones with some success. I don't think they are going to last though and we had one stick to a bunker. They seem to transfer a LOT of material to whatever they hit.

Lol

Silly rabbit!

The old reballs we use to sell to another Reball facility would actually use oil to make them work better. If you think reballs pick up dirt quickly, imagine them covered with oil.

Some of my buddy's actually still have some of the first version of rubber balls ever made. The company suggested using baby oil. They used baby powder instead. Works great, doesn't pick up crap and smells good!

Add on:

Reball gunk is nasty stuff!
Even with cleaning the balls weekly in a washing machine they still get this weird black paste inside the barrel and all over the bolt. Lots of kids shoot paint for the first time and break like mad, 9 out of 10 times it's always Reball gunk. And if you think Reball gunk is hard to remove add paint on there lol

Long time user here. I only use them to test fire my markers after tear down/rebuilds in my home. So, really not more than 20 shots through any marker with them at a time. They are a great tech-gadget IMO.

1) They bounce like crazy, so use something tough + soft to hit. I use a pillow or two under two 'scrunched up' blankets. Blankets may be ripped through if you are using full auto due to repeated quick hits in the same location.

2) MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN THEM! And by that I mean dust them off, remove any grit or hair that they accumulated wherever they land. That stuff doesn't go well with internals of your gun.

3) They are a smaller bore than regular paint, so I feel they shoot slower than regular paint, but not sure. I will confirm with my radar-chron after a day of play + tear down on Sunday.

4) THEY HURT LIKE A B! Or so i've been told... with more mass they could potentially inflict more damage even at a lower FPS. Add to that when i'm using them its indoors to test, so it's really close-range. DON'T, EVEN FOR JOKES, SHOOT SOMEONE WITH THESE AT CLOSE RANGE. not nice.
