Barrels:
I use the 32 degrees Nyte Stikk and it works fine. My friends Bryan and Pat have played for a whileand they have their stock barrels (Psychoballistics LCD silver bullet and Spyder E-99 Avant which are heavily upgraded) and they work fine as well.
Strengths: PRICE
Doesn't break in my gun
Fairly accurate

Weaknesses: Have not experienced any so far.
Review: I bought a box of this paint because it was on sale at a paintball store, even though I was a little bit nervous after reading these reviews (it was 20 bucks for 1,200). I went up to tahoe with my friends to do some paintballing in the woods. I filled up my hopper and started shooting around. The first thing I noticed was how accurate the paint was. I was hitting every thing I aimed for, and these objects were not very close to us.

Ok, so the paint was accurate. But how good is accurate paint if it breaks constantly and having to pull out your squeegee every couple minutes? This was my next test. I shot a lot of balls pretty quickly and no breaks at all. I was still hitting tree after tree. After about 400 paintballs, still no breaks at all. It was awseome, even my friends couldn't believe how good these were. None of us expected such quality from the low priced paintballs. Now the Patriot paintballs were priced even lower at 15 dollars a box. We were excited about these, but when we got them, we got really really pissed off. Balls were curving everywhere, and after every 10 shots another break. Breaks are not a problem with this paint. Patrick shot about 400 balls also and didnt have a break.

Now you may have read reviews that say that this paint breaks like crazy. In my personal experience, I have found very few breaks. My guess would be that these other people may have higher ended guns, which may require higher ended paint. I have a simple spyder, and this paint works just fine. Again, this is my own personal experience, the only way you will ever find out if this paint works for you is if you try it. If you read these reviews and automatically base your opinion, you just might be missing out, like I would have been if I had based my opinion on these reviews and not had tried them.
Conclusion: My two friends and I had a great experience with this paint, in fact we will be going back to buy more and it is now my paint of choice. This paint gives good quality without burning a hole in your pocket. Again, it might be the type of gun you own, but you never know for sure. 20 dollars a box you can't really go wrong, so I say give it a try, just like I did. Excellent product, but there is better out there (ie marbalizers for 70 dollars a box! Too much in my opinion)
Rating:
9 out of 10

Paint of your choice? 9 out of 10? How can you go wrong for $20 a box? Man this review really shows how much you know about paintball. This stuff is as bad as brass eagle stuff. People save your money and put it towards something good!
