Review: I have a 10.5 inch front with 5 fins:
I received my barrel and immediately went to shoot it, I used the ball sizer included with the kit and chose the correct fin. I put a couple balls through it to steady my reg then started testing accuracy. I was shooting at a spool that was 45 feet away. I shot 2 balls at the center hole with both balls going directly through it, I then took it to the field for further test firing at the poles we have holding up our nets from 30 to 120 feet away.
I shot at the pole at 50 feet with ten ball all of them striking the pole. I then shot at the pole at 120 feet with ten ball, nine of them hit it. I then tried rapid fire on a pole around 60 feet away and was amazed at the balls grouping on the pole I was hardly missing at all. My friend was there helping me with the test and he said that he couldn't hear it firing at all, which sounded weird to me because it sounded 3 times as loud as my previous barrel. To see if he needed a hearing exam I let him shoot over my shoulder at a distance of 60 feet. I was amazed at the lack of sound all you could hear was the balls whizzing by. I then remembered the reverse porting that is suppose to direct sound towards shooter not the target, it works very well. Even at close range you cannot hear it firing only balls flying past . I didn't have a break out of 2 cases of paint so I broke a ball by hand to check the natural clean out ability of the barrel. The first shot flew off coarse just like any other barrel , then the second shot was better but still not near the target after the 3rd and 4th shots it got closer and closer with the 5th being on target. This barrel was shooting very well after the broken ball. I was very pleased with the results.
Conclusion: This thing is accurate,accurate,accurate!!!
It has very good clean out after a break to get the balls back on target
The reverse porting is amazing, to the shooter its pretty loud but in front of the marker its silent and deadly, whoever the target is will be wandering where the paint is coming from. Bottom line its the best barrel I have ever shot. If you are looking for a barrel kit , BUY IT. You wont be disappointed
10 out of 10

What kind of paint do you use,because after a break it would not shoot clean?
