Experience:

Products Used:
Progressive, freak kit, spyder stock barrels, and tippman stock barrels. The Freak kit shoots the closest to the hammerhead but at long range the hammerhead pulls ahead. But there is no competition between ANY stock barrel and a Hammerhead with 5 fins.
Marker Setup: 2004 Impulse w/ Disaster Bolt. 2004 Hammerhead 5 fin kit, and I still use Co2 )-:

Paintballs:
In my experience large to small bore paint works just as well in the Hammerhead, the only paint I haven't tested is the brittle paint which I will soon and update my review with my findings. But so far all paint has shot great the better the paint to bore size the better!

Strengths: Accuracy Accuracy Accuracy
Quiet down range
Air effeciency
Weaknesses: Hard to clean initially
Expensive
Review: I'm here to refute all of the myths surrounding the Hammerhead barrel, I came to this site for guidance in my search for the most accurate barrel and decided upon reading the mixed bag of 10s and 1s that this barrel was either the most accurate on the market or just hype.

After actually shooting A hammerhead barrel on inflatable course called PSI on a 2k2 timmy most of my fears were put to rest as I lit up a pole from 150 feet away near ball on ball!

It appears that there was an older model of the Hammerhead before 2004 sometime that occasionally chopped balls at a high rate of fire, but my local paintball shop owner assured me that the 2004 revision did not share this problem.

Getting that out of the way, the barrel shot excellent! My good friend and his dad both have impulses with freak kits, nitro, disaster bolts, LPRs, etc and the hammerhead still outshoots their guns up close and at a distance, Even my neighbor's GX-4 Choas Autococker with nitro and a Lapco barrel can't outshoot my Co2 impy's Hammerhead!

It helps to have a low pressure gun like an electro when shooting brittle paint I believe but that goes for all barrels. I can say this with all honesty, the Hammerhead has never chopped a ball in my impy, although i've only shot about 2 thousand rounds through it so far.

My only complaint with the barrel is that a traditional squeege isn't going to get the job done in cleaning the Hammerhead, it just made it more dirty in my experience! You must use an all cotton/wool/ non abrassive squeege to get all of the condensation/ paint out of the barrel.

Even with condensation in the barrel it shoots great! On the field I got a great shot through a myriad of branches into this guy's neck for a one shot kill, while he was trying to unload on my with a stock impy, his balls were deviating ever so slightly into thin branches on the way to me, however the Hammerhead shot a straight trajectory to take him out!

Everyone who has shot this barrel on my gun wants one, I don't know for a fact that the rifling does anything but what I do know for a fact is that the Hammerhead barrel gets results, shooting from my porch to my fence (105 feet) I can hit a 3 inch fence board 3 out of 5 times! now while that may not sound that great the 2 that miss are within 2 inches of the board!

If you have the money ($229 for a 5 bore sizer kit .679, .683, .686, .690, .693, and one unmarked sizer lol!) go out and buy this barrel! I will say this the bore sizers make about a 4 inch tighter shot grouping at 105 feet when sized correctly, without a proper size like using .693 on .679 balls I get noticably looser groupings, but still great!

Don't just take my word for it! Don't take anyone's word for it, Shoot the hammerhead yourself and if you don't like it send it back cause Hammerhead has a money back guarantee.
Conclusion: If you have $180-229 to spend on A hammerhead do it! why? Results, if you are an accuracy enthuseist like myself you won't mind the investment, It may even save you money in the long run with all of that paint that won't be missing it's target!

If you own all of that stuff why dont you write a review of it, makes you sound an awful lot like a company rep.

Why are you trying to make the sale? And the money back guarantee is BS because I tried to get my money back and Robert just kept talking my ear off for about a damn month until I said screw it and sold it on eBay. Take your review and shove it, company rep.

Well, I am not a company rep, and I doubt that Crimson is either, but my experience has been exactly the same as his. Once I took the time to size the paint correctly and install the specified fin, my Tippmann became a tack driver.
