Products Used:
Tippmann 98 barrel 8.5"
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 with 14" Smart Parts Barrel
TC Paintball's Venom
Strengths: Accuracy
Smaller bore
Much Quieter than 8.5" barrel the Tippmann 98 comes with
Weaknesses: None except a long barrel can get in the way
Review: This barrel is VERY accurate. I was playing against people with flatlines, boomsticks, freak kits, and other top line barrels. The smart parts barrel was just as good as most of them, and was even better than some. The progressive barrel is just as good as barrels that cost well over $100, but it only costs $50. It is a good investment, but if you get it, it is very important to find paint that works good for it. If the paint is the wrong size, it will either break in the barrel, or will be very inaccurate because the ball will bounce around in the barrel and shoot out at a bad angle. This barrel, just like any other, is only accurate if you use the right paint.
Conclusion: I recomend this barrel because there is not a single bad thing about it. Don't let the part where I warned about paint scare you. It is just as important to any other barrel too. This barrel is well worth $50 or however much it costs.

I find that Zap rec series paint works really well for my 2006 progressive. also Nelson Hemmorhage paint and perfection paintballs as well

how long is your barrel?
because this barrel isn't inaccurate i've tested it numorous times
please actually see if a barrel is semi to commonly called inaccurate before claiming ignorantly it is. maybe yours is deffected or maybe your definition of accurate is harder to achieve then mine or others.
so basically think before you post
