JT's Carnivore series paintballs are the newest addition to their lineup. Designed for recreational players, these balls perform well in all markers and offer consistent shots regardless of playing conditions.
The JT Carnivore Paintballs are older, so they are not commonly available anymore.
most hits were on target
nice bright yellow tag
better of the JT's ive used
not a bad price
better than the dusk balls i shot
found at wallyworld so impossibly to match freshness dates
very few barrel brakes but they did ocur often had to strip one gun and get paint out of the inside of the bolt chamber
not a bad paint for store bought. good for target practice or messing around with friends. watch for wallyworld sales. nice humiliating yellow splat color everyone knows your shots becuase the forest is neon yellow when your done
...um paintballs?....bath beeds?...anything round that has a liquid center.
Commando 2, 200rnd hopper, 12 0z co2 tank
one with the same size bore as the paint....DUH
these paintballs have a nice shell. its really smooth which means their more aerodynamic and has less friction in the barrel. the fill is very bright making hits obvious. i did the bounce test and the shell cracked after the 2nd bounce which is really good.
some where dimpled, but its economic paint. (u get what u pay for). the shells where kinda oily but thats may be a + for others but i personally don't like oily paint (well i mean my gun dosen't)
these are very good paintballs. i wouldn't mind using them again but i'd rather go with diablo dusks becasue their cheap (if ur buy paint at wal-mart of course ur goin for the cheapest) adn have the same quality. i use to like the super swirls bc the shells where similar to the carnivors. actually the green fill carnievours look hlaf super swirl. i give it a 9 bc its more then the dusks which are right next to it on the shelves and are the same quality.
All the other Wal-Mart paints (DIablo Dusk, RPS Super Swirls). The JT's definately faired better. They were more accurate and broke less in the gun thans the Dusk's and didn't bounce at all like the Super Swirls.
12" Dye SS
Any medium bore barrel. Tried them in the stock and they seemed a hair small. They are around a .688 size paintball
It is good paint for a good price. It was $15.88 at Wal Mart. The fill is a greenish yellow color. It is pretty thick but it is not that bright and there didn't seem to be a lot of fill in it. The shell is very cool looking if that matters at all. I also noticed that the shell has small seams. That should allow better accuracy. I had no breaks in the gun with these. They looked like they flew pretty straight too. Onto the bad...
I noticed they smell bad. That doesn't affect performance at all but just thought I'd let you know. It looked like there isn't much fill in the paintball. Also some of the time they would curve (I'm sure that's from being out of round).
Good paint for the money. Best paint that I have seen at Wal-Mart. The paint didn't bounce like RPS Super Swirls or break in the gun like the Diablo I tried. Try some out if you haven't.
Brass Eagle Blue Streak(sucks)
Rec Series(pretty good)
Spyder Imagine Stock
Well my imagine is stock and they work fine, but I don't know about others.
Fly Straight and True
They Look Cool
I've busted a few in the barrel
I got these at Bass Pro Shops for $15 for 1000. Thats better than crappy Blue Streaks at Wal-Mart. I mainly play woodsball and they worked great for the price. I'm on a pretty low budget and these are just for me. Sure, there are much better paintballs on the market but you just can't beat the price. I shot quite a few people with these and its really easy to see bright yellow fill was seen immediately. They dont shoot through the brush very well but other than that they shoot straight and bust where they need to.
If you can find these paintballs for the price that I was lucky to find. STOCKPILE. Great balls for a great price. It gets a 9 because of the cleaning i had to do to my barrel
pmi premium (these are good paintballs)
jtusa predator (the same as carnivore accept they look different)
brass eagle (suck)
diablo dusk(actually work well in most guns)
black dragun basic with richochet ak and 20 0z C02
not very many
maybe a brass eagle or winchester gun.
they look cool but that is about it
these paintballs bust very easy
and they are more expensive than most paintballs.
these paintballs are decent but not that great. they look cool but they bust to easy. they are also like $16 for 500 at walmart. if you want to spend 16 dollars on 500 paintballs than get some el tigre paintballs, marbalizer or some type of pmi/rps paintball. what i am saying is don't get these because you can get much better paintballs at the same price.
these paintballs are ok but they bust way too easy. they are better than brass eagle but not near as good as the diablo or pmi/rps paintballs. if you have a beginner gun that doesn't shoot to many balls per second than these are decent paitnballs. but don't get these if you are looking for premium grade paintballs

Its inexpensive and available at mass retailers. Comes in smaller sizes and look good. Looks can be deceving (see below).
Keeping in the tradition of Brass Eagle, these paintballs are awful. Lots of dimples and irregular shapes. Lots of breaks when shooting these sorry excuse for paintballs. The sizes were not uniform and they were probably stored on the shelves too long. They were priced the same as more expensive paint. These things should be $5 for 500 rounds and then it might be a good deal.
Spend a little more and get some Diablo Blaze or JT Maxims. The carnivores are terrible. The only reason I'm giving it a 2 is because there is probably something worse out there (maybe another Brass Eagle product? ). On a side note, its just hard for me to believe that Brass Eagle owns JT and to see the junk that comes out of that brand along with some really good stuff is an enigma.
Very sharp looking paint - the tiger's eye on it is a very cool design.
Dimpled; too many bounces.
When I first saw this paint, I had to try it out just based on looks. I had a number of them curve badly on me, but I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say that barrel size might not be a good fit for them (standard Spyder XTRA barrel).
Still, the box of them I had was full of dimpled paintballs. On top of that, I had a great number of bounces - nothing more frustrating than having someone in your sights, unloading on them, and then watching your paint hit and bounce harmlessly to the ground.
For the price I paid for these, I would recommend picking up some Diablo paint. I usually shoot Blaze, and it is some of the straightest-flying paint I've ever used. If you have any trouble with the Blaze not breaking on impact, upgrade to Infernos - their shell is a bit more brittle and breaks on contact better.
-greasy right out of box
-terrible in cold weather
I had a hard time with these. It was probably my barrel-to-paint match that caused them to break so often. I just couldn't get these to shoot straight at all. Still, they are a little better than brass eagles line of paintballs. I probably won't buy these again unless I can find a barrel that matches the bore size.
Well....what would you expect from paintballs bought at wal-mart?
