shot good in my .688, a .687 would have been better
Nice consistancy in roundness, seem was pretty good, shot consistantly
I thought the fill was a bit runny
I lot of my local fields went to this brand because of a local vendor in springfield, mo. I was skeptical at first, cause I had never heard of it and thought the box looked cheap. After shooting a case in practice, it wasn't bad. It sells for about $45 a case around SEK, so that is kind of nice. Thin shell breaks fairly easy, but dimples quick too.
I think this might be some of the most affordable rec-paint I have shot, especially for the consistancy. I would definately buy it again in a heart-beat!
The stock progressive shot them pretty well, so something around .687-9 (medium bore)
Breaks on target,
Works with most barrels
Considered "white box"
Broke at least 1 ball out of every pod
Ok, so i walk into my local proshop, and im looking for some paint. The cheapest thing they had was karnage bite. so i bought it, and i was expecting something pretty good. Well then I air up my impulse, then start shooting, the first thing I noticed was the accuracy. These are accurate paintballs. But then after about 1 1/2 pods, I start breaking paint. Im sure it wasnt the bore size, but some are VERY brittle sometimes, and get chopped. The fill wasnt great either, but it was visible . After shooting a total of 3 pods, i had chopped 4 balls. The ball brittleness was fairly inconsistent.
This isnt the best paint, but if you can get it cheap, get it. Since nothings perfect it gets an 8.
worr paint was okay, I bought it because it was all they had at my local field, though I much rather prefer karnage paint.
it dosent matter.
anything that is the same bore size as the paint and is accurate, because then you won't really get the best performance.
the paintballs are durable, but WILL break when shot.
Will get oily if stored in a bit(9 degrees)above room temerature.
iv'e started shooting karnage about 3 months ago and iv'e had not that many problems with them. It will break every time you fire, the balls are a a perfect size, not too big, not too small, the balls are always perfectly round, and they are nice and accurate when fired out of a .689 size barrel.
The only problem i can think of is that if they are stored in a room, that is just a little over room temperature, they will become oily which you do not want because it will screw up your barrel and not perform as good(being less accurate and gunking up your barrel).
Over all Karnage is an excellent paint, it is reliable and shoot with great performance, i would recommend it to any player because of the above and it is not too pricey either(around $27.00 for 1000 rounds)

For the most part these things shot really well. i was pretty consistently hitting people
40-50 yds away. ya it sounds like a long way but we were playing on a very large open field approximately 45 acres. any how on the bad side i hit people but they bounced a lot. you kinda had to hit something hard and even then sometimes it did not break. some of the balls were kinda dimpled but very few me and my friend shot a case each and probably between us probably about 50 80 were dimpled. pretty good if you ask me.
I recommend this product because it shot sooo good and its relatively cheap price great for anyone doing anything the reason that i do not give it a 10 is because i also shot tear paint from the same company and its better
04 prostock autococker with a 68/3000 fiber tank & an empire sound activated hopper.
Not sure. Seemed to work fine with a .688 autococker barrel.
Very thin shell meaning breaks on contact. Never broke in barrel out of about 3000.
A tiny bit pricey.
This paint is great. Me and my friend shot about 3000 paintballs together. The paint was extremely accurate and was very thin shelled. No breaks in the gun. I recommend that you buy this paint. The paint wasn't too expensive, but i could have gotten other paint for cheaper. It was about 50 a case. Then again Field prices usually are pretty high.
Great paint all around. Nice thin shell. Very accurate.
The shell is nice. The paint is thick so cheaters cant cheat.
This paint is really good I went through the whole day with out a chop. And that was 3 cases. The kids next to me wanted to no where i had gotten the paint. They were useing diablo blaze and they were chopping and i had not one chop. All of them broke on its target.
This paint is so good it makes all the other paints look like Goooooo!! lol
(All else is stock)
Basic Gravity Feed
(all else stock)
The E-99 stock barrel works well with these in hot weather
Rarely breaks in barrel with decent fit
No football shaped balls
Swells some (in my experince it was a good thing)
Me and my friend split a case of this for a weekend game. Right out they didnt work too well the fit was a little small and neither of us have any spare barrels yet. they would curve off to the side or drop off early. About the third game in i had had one break in my barrel and my friend broke paint that same game, but as the paint was out in the heat (it was about 95 degrees F) it swelled a bit and started too shoot alot better and i had no breaks and my freind chopped one. After they swelled they shot pretty accurate and shot a good 80-90ft with fair to great accuracy. Now back to the bad after they swelled they seemed to bounce a bit more and when shooting at the far end i noticed hitting them 2-4 times before i got them out.
Id recommend this if u have mid to small barrel if its cooler (60-75degrees) or a large if ur playing in the heat (80+)
As long as the barrel fits it waorks good i'd give it an 8.5 but since thats not an option i'll give it a 8
stock(cheap $40 adjustable i bought)
crossfire air tank
anything bigger than .688
i found this stuff to be great. I bought it at my local store for $30 a case(its known as crappy brown box)
im just going to say this right now, the shell is strong and holds up in my flatline(everybody knows they are VERY picky on paint)
It has a nice bright fill, and I have had no problems with cheaters trying to wipe it off so i dunno how well that stuff stays on. sum people say it has a runny fill, but what do you expect for $30?
Good buy. Mainly for recballers(like me!)
If you're going to a tournament invest in higher quality.
Karnage Tear, Diablo Heat, some of the cheap stuff at Walmart, Etc.

well, been a while since i've used them, just probably a .68 bore or around there
Not the highest quality
chop every once in a while
i used these paintball about a year or so ago and have just now gotten around to writing the review. When I used them they started off fairly well but about half way though the day one chopped and after your barrel gets even slighty dirty these paintballs start to become fairly inaccurate. The fill was pretty good, could be thicker though. Overall i think they are good for thier price and are great for anyone that isnt that serious about paintball or is just out to have a good time.
Great for thier price but I wouldn't recomend to someone who is very serios about paintball.

whatever barrle matches the paint. This is a stupid category
inexpensive, consistent roudness, I havent chopped a ball yet
Fill could be better,but it is rec paint
I have been using this paint ever since I hooked up with blackat paintball. For rec paint I am impressed. I have never chopped a ball in my pm6 or my ion, even on ramping modes. The ball are very consistent on roudness, hard to believe being just rec paint. The price is super cheap 45.00 a case. The only problems with the paint is alot of bounces. It might just be a somewhat bad bach because the last shipment wasnt like that.And the fill is just a bit watery. But this is just nick picking for the sake of a review. Overall I really like the paint and use it every week.
Good paint to shoot out of any marker, I have no problems with it other than a few bounces. Great rec paint.
8 out of 10
