GB (0.2g and 0.25g) China made
ICS (0.23g) Taiwan made
EXCEL (0.25g) Japan made
Integrity of the BB's
Ive noticed alot of fuss over which bb's is better. ive also noticed alot of questions about shattering bb's. ICS bb's shatter sometimes but in big fragments unlike the GB which shatters into small fragments talaga, easy enough to enter someone eye when using Mesh masks.
All bb's smashed with a hammer with relatively the same force i presume (by me)
from left to right
1) 0.2g GB - shattered into small fragments (other fragments so small lumipad na talaga)
2) 0.25g GB - Same result as 0.2g BB
3) ICS 0.23g- just pressed or squished without any small fragments
4) Excel 0.25g- same result as ICS
Also may i add that when i used GB not consistent ang accuracy ko. also with ICS there are some stray BB's but not as much as GB bb's. both GB and ICS are relatively in the same price range. as long as you buy from a reputable shop i dont think you will have problems with purchasing fake ICS bb's.
Btw, i am not a retailer of ICS nor have a shop. Im just a regular Airsofter who is concerned about shattering bb's during games especially in CQB when your opponent is near.
I will try to source some other brands of bb's to experiment with like Maruzen, TM, JBU etc etc.
