I just bought some Visible Impact Saturday and it says X-Ball Certified on the box as well as Manufactured by Procaps paintball exclusively for Gameface paintball.

They were only $10 more than the Brass Eagle Monster Balls putting them at $39/case. I bought a case of monster balls and a case of the impacts and I have to say that the monster balls bounced like crazy and flew like flinging cow crap, but the impacts broke almost everytime, they flew much straighter and the red color is easy to track and the fill is a decent fill that doesn't come right off like the monster ball fill does, it has more color and seems thicker. I was actually quite impressed as were several other more experienced players that used them too - in fact the monster ball fills on my cammo within minutes would be absorbed into the material and not visible, but at the end of the day the marks from the impacts could still be seen even after attempting to clean them during the round breaks.

I have to say my new vote goes to Visible Impact

Impact is actually Scorch with just a name change, I believe. If it's not, it's something EXTREMELY close! I've used both, and they are both the same size, same color, same fill, same thickness, same roundness, etc. I'm pretty sure they just changed the name. It isn't Xball brand paint, it's approved for XBall play. Both are made either by or for Game Face and they are both excellent paint from Wal-Mart.

I voted for Xball if it was the actual XBall paint, but my real vote for actual Wal-Mart paint goes to Scorch/Impact. It's awesome stuff at a decent price, good roundness, thick fill, kinda small, but not bad with a kit, flies straight and hardly bounces.

I was shocked when I saw X-Ball as an option as well. I've never seen it at any of my Wal-Marts and even though I don't play anymore I still check them out everytime I go. I bought scorch once from Wal-Mart and it worked pretty well.

As for X-Ball being expensive, it really isn't, at least not here. At Wal-Mart a case of Scorch for me is like $35 at the shop last time I played I paid $32 a case for X-Ball Bronze and I'd shoot Bronze over anything Wal-Mart has any day of the week.
