Products Used:
Flatline, Stock barrel
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5 w/ e-grip and Tippmann Werks 14' barrel
Recommended
Paintballs:
I had better results with premium paint, but 32 degrees as well as some wallmart practice paint didn't do so bad either.
Strengths: -Accurate
-Looks Cool
-Lightweight
-Doesn't chop at all
-Blows stock barrel away
-Cheap
Weaknesses: -Chrome (no biggy)
-Doesn't exactly help the A-5's tendency to be loud
Review: Before I bought this barrel I owned a flatline and I wasn't very happy with it. The main problem was that the gun's velocity constantly needed to be adjusted and even when i had it right the barrel was never accurate enough to hit anyone in woods ball. So I sold the flatline and decided to give the werks a try. I mean what could i loose for 50$. When I got it in the mail I immediately noticed how sleek the barrel was and I said to myself "This barrel cannot chop a ball." Well after going through 750 balls of crappy 32 degrees paint my thinking was proved right. I was amazed at it's pinpoint accuracy and precision. It definately did not shoot as far as the flatline but it sure as heck shot a lot more accurately. If you've been looking for the definitive barrel for the A-5, look no further.
Conclusion: I have to say Tippmann did a fine job making this barrel and I don't know why they can't make stock barrels like this. If you're an amateur woods ball or speedball player i would definately recommend this. I know experianced players with an A-5 would go for something more well known and expensive like a Dye, but I can honestly say after seeing this in action that the Werks is frankly, da best. If all you have right now is the stock barrel go buy it, i got mine for 46$ at an ebay store.

You wanna bet? Put on a flatline and use the same paint I used and there would be a small mess. Take any crappy wallmart gun and take the barrel off the chopping problem is solved. So yes barrels can chop balls depending on how smooth the inner area is and depending on how effectively they enter the barrel. Concluding for a 45$ barrel i expected it to chop balls some balls in the barrel because of its low price, but it performed just like any high price barrel and left the bolts only for the chopping.

alrighty now we need to settle this, if the paint is too big or too small of bore size for the barrel, it will break, but not chop. Paint chops when someone is shootin fast and the ball is halfway in and the bolt slices it in half, makes a mess. HE IS JUST STATING A FACT AND YOU GOTTA BE GA Y ABOUT IT .
