Paintballs:
MARBALIZER! Marbalizer runs a lot bigger than I expected and fits perfectly in this barrel. ZAP Spank for those on a budget. Any other big diameter paint you can find.
Strengths: It looks great. Good accuracy for a $40 barrel.
Weaknesses: Huge Bore Size! Good luck matching paint.
Review: I had a bad initial experience with this barrel, wrote a negative review, put the barrel in a drawer and forgotten about it. The comments I got on my original review prompted me to give this barrel another try. I tried this barrel on my Outkast and E-Orracle using bigger paint, Marbalizer and ZAP. The results were much different than when I first tried it. This barrel was as accurate as a Progressive and All American and i assume any other barrel in its price range. It is a good barrel but it did not perform better than my JJ Ceramic, Boomstick, or Poison Arrow. I now attribute my initial problems with my difficulty with my Outkast which was my first Autococker.
Conclusion: This barrel is worth the $40-$50 you will pay for it. It performs well for what it costs. So, based purely on performance and not cost, if I were to rate my Poison Arrow a 10, Boomstick a 9, JJ Ceramic an 8, then this barrel would have to be a 7. For the same money or less the JJ Ceramic is a better barrel.
