this is very similar to your other thread! zap and brass eagle are not known for their unpresidented quality therefore i don't think either one is better than the other you're gonna have to spend at least $50 per 2000 rounds to get anything even kinda round any less and you'll see your accuracy go down

I'd go with ZAP over BE.

Be careful here.(you can't listen to everyone on here)  They'll always say, "Oh you have to get these.  They cost $12345 a box, but they're the best."  You don't always need the best.  I would say go with some cheap, but good paint like some I use(cheap, but good for the price):

CORE

ZAP Deviant

TORK

SCORCH

These are some good, but cheap paintballs.  I use them in woodsball, but they could probably be used for speedbal too.  I have had best luck with the TORK or CORE paint.  I would try them out. 

 

By the way about the don't listen to everyone on the forum, it is a reliable forum, but watch who you listen to.  You don't always have to get the best.  By the way I don't know the pricing, but I've also heard good things about PMI Premiums(^)

yea, pmi premiums are really good paint.  If you cant afford them id say go with scorch, you can get those for $20 a case and they're not too shabby at like Walmart.  I try to stay away from BE as much as I can cause I think the company's bad.

Depends on what you're using them for. BE makes a very good soup, all you have to do is put it in your hopper and shoot fast, then serve.

Neither really shoot all that well.

Heavy metal is terrible, you shake the pod it comes in up and down and they bust.

I've used both. I've Used BE Afterburner and ZAP Chronic, Tork and AMP. And i have never had any problems with them. I have never found a broken ball in any of the bags and my ball breakage was due to double feeds or dirt in the barrel. ZAP Chronic i found to be amazing, the accuracy was realy good out of my J&J Pro1 barrel. I figured it's because it's a smaller paintball, than the other i mentioned above. I play mainly woods-ball so i go for the cheapest paint as possible, because i shoot a ton of it. If you want good cheap paintballs i'd reccommend the ZAP, then go for the BE.
