would u mind testing the rad powderball (just to make sure if dimpled rounds are in fact useless)?

They want $17.10 minimum for shipping... ouch.

theres are two toned, ours are a single color?

however, looking at there pics, the dimples look the same size, and again have the same shallowing near the seams.
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

2 toned? sounds perfect for a high speed camera test. ;)

wow that is a real shame. I had high hopes for these things.

If only they were made with equal sized dimples evenly spaced around the ball with a minimal seam. Then I believe 100% that they would fly further and more accurately than a regular paintball.

But I doubt they will ever be improved by the manufacturer, as these things are not really popular enough to justify improvements.

Seems like the Asian market (.43) likes them, so with that being said the manufacturer might improve quality.

oh I wasnt aware of that. Hopefully they do improve quality. Because a high quality GOLF ball would likely dominate.

I wonder if the .43s are just as inaccurate and squirely? Because they must be popular for a reason...

I would hate to get hit by one of these in close quarters - did you see the way they punched through the plywood?

I would probably avoid that field.

they should start a new sport called "crasy-ass-flying dust filled ball" those things look like they are going to hit the target, then, they dodge it as if they had a life of their own.. =/
