The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of
Product Use:
Only tested0 of 17 people found this review helpful.

Less than a month
Products Used:
imagine stock barrel
Marker Setup: Spyder Imagine, Smart Parts teardrop, 20 oz. CO2
Strengths: - May have quieted down a bit
Weaknesses: -Accuracy and shot consistency isn't there
Review: If you have a Spyder Imagine this barrel is not a good idea. The shot consistancy wasn't there at all. I tried putting my stock barrel back on and my shot patterns became tighter. So if you have a Spyder Imagine and are looking for a barrel I would look for something else. I bought a Dye Ultralite but i haven't gotten to use it yet.
Conclusion: I wouldn't get it if you have a Spyder Imagine.

Did you have a good paint to bore match?

Dude I have the Spyder Imagine, and this barrel is a mirricle compered to the P.O.S. barrel that comes stock. Maybe your shots wern't tight because you just suck.

If his shots weren't tight just because he sucks, then how could they become tighter when he puts the stock barrel back on? That just doesn't make any sense.

His paint to bore match is off.

Dude my friend had a Imagen with this barrel and it shot straighter then your blind eyes could see. Either your paint sucked or your shooting does...NOOB

I used this whith my Imagine, and co2, and got WONDERFUL shot groupings, but I had a perfect paintt barrel match, or so I would presume, because this was just as accurate as my friends flatline...

Dude it's your gun, I've used a teardrop on a spyder rodeo and it kicked ass, like 100f absolutly no curve. And I've used the imagine before too and the gun is crap! Inconsistant shots and huge curves (even with a 12'' barrel which isn't too bad). The Teardrop probably improved your accuracy but your gun sucks so much that you thought it must have been your barrel.

I wouldn't get it if you have a Spyder Imagine.

Better yet, don't get a Spyder Imagine if you have this barrel.

This is completely untrue. In rapid fire the accuracy is almost perfect and as long as you use good paint the accuracy is almost perfect while firing 1 shot. Don't listen to this newbie who has player less then a month.

The Teardrop is a killer barrel, and with less than a month of experience you obviously don't know what your talking about.

I have a 14" TearDrop for my 98 Custom and I can say it is possible the most accurate barrel I've ever used. Try it with PMI SuperSwirl and I swear it will improve soooo much. I was making ball after ball into this little 3" diameter circle cut into this wood when I was test firing before a game, making every shot at like 30 feet WITHOUT sights. (making this barrel ergonomic as well ;) ). It is VERY picky on paint, buy PMI SuperSwirl. Also, once dirty, this barrel is completely useless. Make sure you keep it spotlessly clean, or balls WILL swerve at not even 20' out the barrel. Read my review hope it helps. also, visit my team's website for pics of our guns and gear at Turn pop-up blocker off to view it and thanks to anyone who does! Sign the guestbook :D

First of all...The Barrel works great and second of all...don't tell people what to buy when you have less than a month of experience playing paintball
