Products Used:
i have used my friends smart parts teardrop and seen other barrels compared to mine.
Marker Setup: pretty much stock except for the new barrel and empire revvy.
i have tried several paints with my barrel and found that ans house paint worked pretty well. i also used point blank, which sucks, and anarchy all dropped a bit except house paint which went the farthest and straightest out of them all. I used some big ball when i first got my barrel and that also worked well, but i didn't shoot as fast then.
Strengths: not much more accuracy with rifelling

Weaknesses: rips through brittle paint
spirall is basically pointless
no more distance or accuracy
Review: i got the barrel and was very impressed, at first, i tested it in my garage and it shot fine. i took it to the field that weekend and was sorely disapointed. id run up and try to through some paint out on the field, when all of a sudden globbs of paint would spew out. it was like that all day. i would be 15 feet away from a guy and shoot at him 10 20 times before a ball would come out. average i would say every 15 shots id get half or less out. I thought to try it one more time so i took it out another weekend. i was using the same paint as before but just a week older. that day i didn't chop once. i don't know if the paint shell hardened or what but i was shooting clean. performance was only on the okay side though. as i procede to use different paints i find that hard shell paint works better. its okay but if i had done it different i would have just gotten a teardrop.
Conclusion: get an non riffeled barrel, there is no point in it, and eliminates any chance of ever using high end paint. get something else.

ummm draxxus midnightswork great and are $40/2000 so i'd say that's not high end... you just need to have good paint-barrel match... also did you check the ends of the barrel for burrs...

sounds like the paintballs were to big and were getting stuck in the barrel until you just them all. If you load 10 balls into the barrel and they all break then of course globs of paint are ganna spew out. Since they started working a week later im guessing that the paint shell got weak or brittle and was easier slipped throught he barrel.

This barrels internal rifling helps the barrel shoot much more accurately and it helps a ton. also the author is wrong about the fact that this barrel cant use high end paint.
