The new "Premium" grade airsoft BBs from the Umarex Elite Force division are probably one of the biggest surprises of 2011. When we first received these BBs modestly packaged in recycled plastic bottles we assumed they were just another re-branded, run-of-the-mill airsoft round like everybody else is putting out these days. Well, you know what they say about assuming.5,000 ct. easy pour bottle.
Earth friendly, Biodegradable.
High polished, premium round.
Manufactured in Taiwan by Green Science.
In short, the ballistic properties of these rounds are unmatched by any other round we have fired to date regardless of it being a standard or BIO round. When compared head to head with some of the markets leading brands who boast tolerances down to the hundredth millimeter, perfect spherical balancing and precision lapping finish, the Elite Force Premium round all but kicks dirt in their face. It reminded us that it does not matter if the BB was molded by angels and hand polished by leprechauns. The only thing that counts is how the round flies when it leaves the barrel.
Both the Elite Force standard and biodegradable premium rounds displayed excellent performance by producing tight full auto groupings and not a single feeding malfunction despite thousands of rounds being fired out of a wide array of different AEG, Gas and Spring guns. And that my friends is pretty amazing considering that they are pound for pound the cheapest airsoft round we currently carry.
Weighing nearly 1/10 of a gram more than the standard .2g BB, the .28g offers a high level of accuracy and is affected very little by air currents or wind. This round will also hold its inertia longer making it highly effective at long range and can easily cut through leafs and underbrush making the .28g an ideal round for designated marksmen or sharpshooters.
