Also, while VA 0.20s may be the most expensive for a single bag, they are much cheaper if you do a large group order of 12+ bags (good for retailers, airsoft teams, etc), which end up costing only 0.464 cents/shot.


Also +1.
Yeah I didn't have much time today to do a full report. I will start a new thread later with .2s, .25s, and maybe some .28s or something. Stay tuned!

Please try to incorpirate a Time /repair/ cost valuation please. Cheap ass rice bag bb's jammin up my mags vs having zero frustrations spewing thousands of Lil' Bastards. My Airsoft time is worth more to me than saving .02 cents on a BB. Also realize that Shipping vs walk in purchase changes the cost per bb. Buy Quality everytime and you won't be disappointed, if the Bastards are cheap that's a perk.
The Bastard has a standing offer for the Brain BB. You won't find any deformed BB's in a Bag of Bastards. The only on that shows up is the brain BB. Its smaller than a regular bb and has a shrivelled brain looking pattern. There are less than one in 5million or so. If you get a BB Bastard Brain trade it into a Bastard Retailer for a free bag. These brains are usually found when leaving the barrel of your AEG. Its the on that heads for Jupiter, Totally ignores the hop up and in the right conditions smacks the shooter in the back of the head. Still causes no frustration to the player (except that you just missed out on a Free bag of Bastards lolz.

I'm using my BlackBerry right now, so can't link you, but search the review section for my thread on testing Bastards, comparing all the weights against each other, as well as a couple other brands I had on hand. I only use .20g for chronying, I won't even consider gaming with any .20g BB, but for the quality and consistancy compared to price (add in ease of availability), bastards can't be beat, period! Check out the numbers to see why ill only use the Bastards for my gaming and ballistics testing.

Never had a jam with any BB out West, Metal Tech, TM or Excel and it's super sandy & dry here. That's with blah blah blah tight bore, special hopup, various mags and brands of AEG and GBB pistols etc. 0.25s and 0.20s.

What I'd like to see from Metal Tech though is 0.28s.

you can buy a pair of bi-way running shoes for $8, or top quality asics for $150+. they may both be called running shoes, but they are not the same thing or 'equal' by any means. you get better performance out of top quality brands which put together a better quality product, this applies to airsoft bb's as well.

you can find cheaper bb's that will shoot out of your gun i agree, but in my experience your sacrificing quality and performance. more jams, feeding problems, and accuracy after the bb leaves the barrel. people spend so much money on upgraded springs, gears, barrels, scopes, etc. to improve performace. if you load your aeg with junk or low qulaity bb's, all the other upgrades in the world arent going to help you. you have to start with a reliable, and quality base for your gun which includes quality bb's.

bb's are one of the cheapest parts of airsoft, in my experience if you pay for a quality brand you will be satisfied with the results. ive only every trusted two brands of bb's since i started playing airsoft over 10 years ago, excel, and bb bastard. both are worth the price.

Since I started using Bastards 3 years ago, I've found a brain BB, maybe two, but they are exceptionally rare. First I've found out as far as getting a free replacement bag though. Still, since I have done extensive testing with Bastards, I've gotten lots of various weights free FOR my testing, both static and gaming. Also helps to be best friends (and now roommates) with one of the top selling, if not the top selling Bastard, Testtube.

Ever since i opened my first bag of Bastards I have not used anything else. I liked the product so much i became one of the Big Bastards.

people have asked for me to sell others but hard to go to another product when you sell the best airsoft bb on the market in the world to be honest.

plain and simple i've seen metal tech jam up lots of guns come chrony time. @ games and shake my head and donate a bag so people don't get mad @ them for fucking there guns.

and yes Jeroon is right about the brain bb as I have given out a free bag ask hazard.

and on top of all that BB Bastards supports your Games with some major sponsorships.

my 2 cents and this is not because I sell them it's because it's a proven fact that nothing touches the Quality or the price of a Bastard bar non.

As for .28 bb's they are like gold, when you have people begging for them and doing pre order before the shipment is in it speaks for it'sself right there.
