Comment : I like this bb. It’s a ceramic bb. His surface « mirror polish » and his hardness are exceptional. I’m thinking that is a bearing ball.

The store www.Softwarshop.com sent me a sample few years ago, it’s the same always. The bb was shot on metallic target and it has not been broken or damaged. I don’t advise to use them in game because of his expensive price.

Conclusion

 

Judging from the work and the hours spent on it appears that apart from very rare «hummingbirds» there are no more bad bbs on the market. I think that as the hop-up rubber or inner barrel, the technology and the increased market has allowed for more reliable new manufacturing processes. Quality control is the same.

 

After research on the different bbs that have suspected it to come from the same manufacturer I think the difference is mostly polishing with more or less higher levels of finish. The samples should be given to a laboratory to finely study the composition and make it possible to be sure, but this is beyond the financial means.

Now it isn’t more appropriate to look for the perfect ball because they are almost all of them but rather the one that will match best with your replica or your way of playing. At this level we can congratulate Geoffs which offers almost all possible weights 0.32/ 0.36/ 0.38/ 0.40/ 0.43/0.45/0.46/0.48 and 0.50. In 2004 I wrote this « it’s up to you to make your choice based on your power, the distance at which you make the majority of your shots and other parameters (fast or precise bb, wind or not, shooting through cartons or not, etc.). This is more relevant than ever. Finally I would like to remind you that we are on measures so fine that the presence of dust, hair or other inside your hop-up will have more influence than using a bb that may have 0.04g of difference from one to the other. In the outside disturbers, the temperature and the humidity also have an influence on your hop-up and of course I don’t speak about the presence of the wind

A summary table with all the data will be posted on the Sniperland forum.
