other aftermarket barrels, too many to list. none come close, except my old boomy, but the J&J was quieter andmore accurate.
stock spyder EXTRA (backup/loaner) w/ 12" J&J ceramic
egrip w/ gta double trigger and home mods
shocktec drop and front grip
absolutly any paint will work with this barrel, even the crappy feild paint we are forced to use. but the best is, believe it or not, pmi premiums/bigballs or marbs.
self cleans IF u get a CHOP
Scratches kinda easy
i bought the 12" for my spyder EXTRA, b/c we all know that stock barrels suck. it was a huge improvement over the stock. when i bought my A5 it came with the 14" model and it kicks ass with the egrip.
i have done tests with both the 14" J&J and the 14" boomstick. at 50 feet(yes i measured) i shot 10 shots at a board 16" wide. the J&J had groupings of 3 inches(meaning all the balls struck within 3 inches center to center) the boomstick had groupings of 6 inches.
i had the chance to try different lengths of the J&J(10",12",14",16") contrary to poular belife there is no diirence in accuracy. the only difference was the 16 was a little bit quieter thean the 12" and 14".
if your looking for a great after market barrel get the J&J ceramic. if u play speed ball and want to wrap around your bunkers then go for the 14" or 16", but if u just play rec ball, get the 12" b/c it's the perfect length to be able to run thru the woods w/o hitting stuff.
