Well, i use Diablo Heat which is good paint. Anything good, no crap paint like Eagle Junk and what not.
Strengths: Much Quieter than my friends markers.
Great Accuracy.
Very Sturdy
Weaknesses: When wet it gets really swirly.
Ball breaks are really hard to clean out
Review: Ok, this barrel is great. I got it used and it was in great condition. I have bumped it into trees, posts, fences, and rocks, it scratched some of the paint off but it didn't damage the barrel at all. I have dropped it on tile and it didn't chip, just a little paint scratch. The accuracy is awesome, the shots all go to the same place. The rifling helps keep the paint flying straight and for a longer distance. It is also quiet compared to most barrels.

Its main downfall is when it gets wet. I live in the NW and i use Co2 so when the barrel gets cold and water condenses in the barrel the paint can get really wacky. The balls spiral and curve like crazy but all it takes is a quick squeegie through and it works great. When shots break it also gets bad, but again all it takes is a squeegie through the barrel. Then theres the paint in the porting. All i do is put my hand over the end and fire, the Co2 will blow the paint out. WARNING! Make sure there isn't a paintball in the breach before you shoot. It will hurt badly. Yeah, i've done it.
Conclusion: This is a great barrel and i would recomend it to anyone who is in the market for a barrel. The wet problem happens with all barrels and can be solved with a quick squeegie through. Thats why i give this barrel a 10 out of 10
10 out of 10
