I never buy paint online, I buy it at the same shop, and it's always dimpled even though they say they got it in a few days ago.

That's really my only complaint, and due to dimpling, it doesn't always fly straight.

It isn't SUPER brittle, because I have had it bounce from a bunker, it was such bull****. But anyways. It has a SUPER bright fill, I love it about this paint.

For 40 bucks a case, it's a great deal, but I wouldn't pay more than 45, which 43 is close

small event paint: eh

I have have only shot karnage tear once, but it was a wonderful expirence. It was suplied for us at a local shop for the standard $40.00 per case they charge, and we shot it at a SEPS tournament. Paint was fresh,not dimpled and had an attractive two tone orange and gray shell. The fill was a bright orange that marked very well and had fairly thick fill. Not evil thick fill, but thicker than id expect for the price. It worked wonderfully for local tournament paint. it broke on target, and i dont think we bounced anyone that day. Didn't have a single teamate break a ball in the barrell or breach but it broke on the other team.For the record it was warm weatherso i can't speak for how it would shoot in cold weather. If your looking for a good quality paint to shoot for a low price tage, I would strongly reccomend Karnage tear.

The Pros
- shell looks nice
- decent fill

The Cons
- well, it's Karnage...
- VERY bouncy paint
- dimples and tumors
- unreliable batch consistency
- inaccurate
- changes in weather overly effect the shell (Evil is more resistant to that sort of thing)
- overpriced for what you get

OVERALL
Karnage is just awful throughout their entire paint lineup. Their Burn practice is f'ing horrific, and their "nicer" quality paint is equally as disappointing. It's impossible to rely on their products: it's a flip of the coin whether or not you get a decent batch of paint. Tear is no exception. Karnage's problem is that they use the lowest quality materials to maximize profit and the players are the ones who suffer.

Avoid Karnage products if you care about what comes out of your barrel. Just horrible.

Karnage Tear very similar to PWI paintballs. they break on contact and the fills are pretty thick.
