Experience:

Products Used:
Pt Professional paintball pistol, Zeus G1, G2, PT Extreme. There is no comparison. PPS Stroker beats them all hands down.
Marker Setup: Palmer PGP Stroker with bottom line center fed. Palmer regulater, ricchochet AK loader,
88/45 3A tank, coiled remote.
Recommended
Upgrades:
None, it has all the upgrades it needs when palmer returns it to you.
Strengths: Small, compact light weight. Easy to maintain. Extremely accurate. Great looking.
Weaknesses: Short barrel means less range. Expensive $475.00 plus the cost of the original marker.
Review: For those that want auto-cocker performance in a pistol size package, the stoker can't be beat. It is extremely accurate fires straight on and has excellent ROF. Only downside is being a pistol it has a shorter range. If you have good tactics you will be able to get in and tag whoever needs it. Since it is pistol size you can squeeze into much tighter spots without worrying about sticking out. This marker does not present a large profile to shoot at . You'll probably take most hits on the hopper from the front or side. The weight and feel of the marker makes it a pleasure to fire and does not produce excessive recoil which keeps the marker right on target. The trigger pull is light and smooth, making snap shots a breeze with this marker.
Conclusion: I would fully recommend this product to the paintballers who like the compactness and manuverability of pistol. It give you the performance capabilities of an auto-cocker in a tiny package. It's much better than the PT pro, Zeus, etc... If you have the mony for the conversion do it, you won't regret it.

Length of barrel does not effect range.

For the sake of argument, length does matter. Take a 4 inch barrel and a 14 inch barrel. Shoot both vised, and the 4 inch will not reach as far as a 14 inch. Take the barrel off and you only get a few feet range fom it.

between 10-16 inches distance is the same more or less, any longer or shorter and it wont go as far.

wrong!
if both barrels are shooting the same fps it doesn't matter how long the barrel is. Range is the same efficiency is what changes

The percieved correlation between range and barrel length is such a myth! Imagine this scenario;

Take two identicle paintballs.

Shoot one through an 8 inch barrel at 280 fps.

Shoot the other through a 20 inch barrel at 280 fps.

Which barrel paintball will shoot further?

If you answered "the 20 inch barrel," you're a moron. They both will have equal range!
Range is only affected by velocity and the physical properties of the paintball, not the length of the barrel. The only difference between the barrels will be their gas efficiency.

Go ahead and try your vise grip experiment. But when you do it, be sure that all barrels are shooting at the same velocity. Afterwards, get back to us and let us know how it went :)
