Spyder Xtra with 14" Smart Parts Teardrop, 20oz. CO2, standard hopper
Evil is the only paintball I will shoot with any gun I own, they're that good.
Dosn't break balls
None so far, although black isn't the best matching colour to my Xtra
Well, I was in the shop cruisin and was looking at barrels and the guy told me he had a barely used Teardrop for 60 CDN, I went out back shot a few and asked 50 and he accepted so it was a deal I couldn't refuse.
I got home, put on my tank and went into my yard to take a few shots. I had noticed a bit of drop with my balls with the stock barrel...often causing me to have to "lob" the balls but this could have been a CO2 problem too.
Very straight, no dive and no curve watsoever from my perspective and this was about 50 feet to a 1 1/2' by 2' target....4 out of 5 shots hit in a 5" radius, the other went off, probably my fault though.
Excellent, I was shooting fairly uphill about 350-400 feet away with a slight (5km) breeze to the side. I aimed it a bit up and shot, it went straight the WHOLE time with maybe a slight bend because of the wind swaying it...I was impressed. I let the wind die down and fire another shot....perfectly straight until I couldn't see it anymore.
This is an awesome barrel and complements many Spyders or run-of-the-mill guns. For the price, it's hard to beat (although a Progressive shoots just as good but without the fancy "Teardrop" porting) Even used (which I bought) it performs as good as new (maybe better because of break-in) I haven't played a competitive game yet, but from my testing, I think it will be MY fault if I miss a shot.
10 out of 10
