7 Best Paintballs | March 2017
We spent 17 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. When playing a game of paintball, it's important that you leave your mark, so to speak. When we set out to determine which paintballs give you the best bang for your buck, we considered how straight each brand's balls fly and how reliably they shatter on impact. We also factored in caliber, cost, color, and biodegradability. Plus we included a couple of practice options, too. Skip to the best paintball on Amazon.
