Products Used:
Stock Dragun TES Barrel
Marker Setup: Dragun TES, CP Lightning drop forward, CP regulator (short), CP ASA, APM Tiger bolt, Halo TSA Frontman, Powerlyte Speedline 2 piece barrel, 68ci 3000psi Crossfire aluminum tank, Occasionally use the 32 Degree Remote with the tank in the Camelbak!
No preference, they fly straight with this barrel unless you have some ghetto paint!
Strengths: Accurate & light
Weaknesses: None so far
Review: 1st off I'd like to say that Powerlyte has an awesome customer service! I originally ordered the 1 piece speedline barrel off their website and what I got was the end of a 2 piece Scepter. So I called them up and they said they were very sorry and they did make a mistake. However, they sent me an upgrade to a 2 piece Speeline barrel an a prepaid postage to send back the end piece to the Scepter. I was shocked and very very pleased!

Ok, now to the barrel...
My stock TES came with a pretty decent barrel but that was when I was just messing around in the backyard. When I played at the field I had balls zipping left and right. I was bummed considering the marker is sweet. Anyway, I was dumb and upgraded just about everything but the barrel so I did some research and found Powerlyte when I was ready and had some $ for a new barrel. What can I say.. when I got the 2 piece Speedline today I just had to test it out. I did a long and short range comparison between the stock TES and the Powerlyte. I tested both barrels with a new bag of paint that I had left over from the field. I would say at 30 yards the TES blew chunks once again. Out of 10 shots firing one ball at a time slowly, only 1 hit the wooden stick (I had it sticking up from a mound of dirt.), and the others were about 1-5 feet away from the target. The Powerlyte, also firing slow, hit the stick 5 times and the balls were about 1 foot away at the most from the target. Now when I fired about 15 balls per second the TES barrel became more accurate with balls only straying 1-2 feet from the target, only a few hit the stick. The Powerlyte test had balls within 1 foot, the majority hitting the stick- very nice!

Conclusion: The short test had similar results so no explanation needed. I read others posts and they all said that it made their markers quieter.. I really didn't notice a difference, my gun is probably at fault. But I'm not too concerned with quietness, I just want a damn good accurate barrel and this Powerlyte Speedline did that for me!

I would suggest you go get the $89 barrel off their website, if you have more $ then by all means get the Scepter! I would imagine it would be better. When I even just held the end piece they sent me in error it was lighter than the Speedline end piece. I gave them a well awarded 10 because they didn't need to upgrade me but they went that extra step to make me happy and it did!
10 out of 10
