Review: I work at a field paint only field in cali, and Karnage is the only paint we sell. We sell all of their line, from the brown box practice paint, to the blue box (rip) tournament grade and all boxes and fills in between. This paint is absoloutely awesome. Karnage red box offers many different fills and shell color combinations, five I can think of right of the top of my head. I've tried all sorts of paint, from low end wal-mart stuff to high end tournament grades, and I have to say, this gives you the best bang for your buck. I get a ridiculous deal (Our field is on a military base, so it's non-profit and I get red box for 32 dollars) but I've seen it on the outside for 40-45 dollars a case, which compared to the price of paint that I consider to be at least as good, it's about 20 dollars below what it's price shold be. The shell is nice and thick, never have problems with it breaking in the barrel, but at the same time, I've never had problems with it bouncing off my targets. The two color shell is really nice, and it's pretty much the same fill as the blue box tournament grade, thick and nasty, and if you get hit, it will leave a huge bright mark, even after your opponent tries to wipe it off, but again, at the same time, it doesn't stain and washes out very easily. Oh, I almost forgot. since I work at the field, I get kind of impulsive about running out of paint and at times I kind of get stocked up on it. I've had open cases of this paint sitting in my closet (controlled temperature) for a month before, only rolling the bags over maybe once a week, and when I finally took it out to play, not a single problem with it. Come on, what other paint can do that.
Conclusion: I know I get a very good deal individually, but even at the paintball stores, this paint is a very affordable bright filled paint that I have even used in tournaments with nothing but awesome results. I know Karnage isn't very well known in some areas, but if you see this paint definately pick it up. The blue box tournament grade from Karnage is also an awesome product, but I feel the red box is just as good and anywhere from 20-40 dollars cheaper, and the blue box doesn't have a split color shell. Do the right thing and give this box a try, you won't be dissapointed.
