A small bore, i used my .683 evil pipe insert for them.
Again, if you read my review of the Bite balls, you can pretty much guess what i'm going to say here. After getting horrible performance from my 2 cases of bite i decided to upgrade to the Tear. While the seams were better, they still performed like crap. bad accuracy and barrel breaks again plagued my day.
Not sure what Karnage did to the paint that they supplied to our event, but whatever they did it wasn't good. The entire crew at the event complained about how crappy the paint was. Considering how high the rating is for the Tear we must have had a bad batch, but from my experience i wouldn't recommend them.
Was using RPS Premium paintballs, but not anymore the karnage are incredible compared to the premium paintballs. Well worth the price

Not greasy, very round, beautiful fill, good breakage or your opponent.
None so far
I've been using RPS premium paintballs and now I think they suck really back. I was having all kinds of breakage problems with them in the barrel, and that's after using every insert in my freak kit. Now that I have purchased tthe Karnage paintballs my problems are gone. They fly straight and I have very minimal bouncing off of players. Zero breaks in my barrel after 2 cases. These compare very well with the Nelson anarchy paintballs. I give these a 10 because I think for the price it is hard to find anything that compares.
Wonderful paintballs, I will continue to buy them and recommend them. Awesome

Need to match your paint to bore or you'll be shooting everywhere
I used these paintballs in a tournament in September 2006 and they worked real well. I still had some left over paint which i stored for 2 weeks and it was still like new out of the box. I really like the breakage of these paintballs. You can really tell if you hit someone. For $40 it's a bargin anything above $45 buy something a little more tournament grade.
Good for practice or low end tournaments but wouldn't fair well in high end tournaments.
WS Bonus Ball, Worr Practice, PMI Prem, and Rampage. Karnage Tear was much better than all of these.

None that I can think of.
I found a guy in my area that sells Karnage Tear for $30-35 a case, so I jumped on the deal. I had heard good things about the paint, and I wanted to test it for myself, and for the price I couldn't of been more happy.
The paint has a very thick fill that you can see from across the field, and on top of that I didn't have any bounces all day. Every shot was almost ball on ball and I had no chops all day. I would recommend this paint to anyone looking to pick up some great paint for a good price.

Breaks on target
This paint is good. It breaks on your target. It also is very duarble. I have used this paint in the rain and it held up very well. The paint shot like it was not raining at all. I have used a lot of cheap paint becuase I wanted to save some money, so I just decided to get a case of this paint for a day and I liked it and I recomend it for anyone.
If you have the money pick up a case and try it out for a day.
Nothing as good as this except weapons grade paintballs.
Blue Body kit
Blue Ion Q lock
Halo B w/ Rip drive Blue (had an Empire reloader not the reloader B)
Blue CP reg
Stiffi or freak jr.
Multi colored shell
Nothing really except sometimes you find it kinda expensive.
This is awesome paint you got good paint when you got this paint. I belive this is weapons grade or turtament grade I am not entirly sure. You really do get what you pay for but if you know the right people and places you get wat you pay for and even more. You should always get this paint over anything except weapons grade and sponsered paint like evil or Dynasty paint.
This is really awesome paint so this paint described in 4 words.
JUST GET THIS PAINT!
Gap, RPS Rampage and Marbilizer(spelling??), Karnage white box and the tournament grade Karnage, tons of other no name cheap paint.
Tippmann A-5 with Richochet hopper, fixed stock, JJ ceramics barrel, WAS board egrip for rec and scenario play. Also have an Ion with new trigger, feedneck, QEV, CP reg, and custom drop forward with Halo B w/ rip, JJ ceramics and CP barrel for the Ion, use it for speedball.
No complaints at all with my two barrels, never heard anybody else complain about the size.
Consistency, roundness, fill, price, durability.
Haven't found any yet.
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.
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.
This Paint was used during the Last TAW Event in Oroville, Almost perfect shell, Amazing fill, not easily wipeable, does not like to run. Especially when on the freeway it hits your windshield at 75-80 mph in the rain and refuses to run!!!! I had to use half of my windshield fluid to get the crap off!
So far this has been the best stuff i have used.
If you can afford it! Go for it! The best paint i have seen.
Dark timmy, empire b shocktec wheeled, .689 jr3 barrel, and empire 68/4500,also .691 lucky 15
Does well with force feed
Very thick fill
Priced right if you shop around
None I experienced
Found this for around the 40 dollar mark and its well worth it. Shot two cases with only one break in the loader, but I attribute that to the wheel on the empire. Its played havok on a few paints, but this one did well with the loader upgrade. The second case was shot by a teammate without the wheel and he had no loader breaks. Fill is very thick, bordering on sludge and doesnt wipe, but does wash afterwards. Broke on just about everything I hit. Works for me.
Have already reordered 3 cases for another trial and if it is like the last two I will be a regular customer.
10 out of 10
