Review: For $50 I had no idea what to expect from a one peice barrel. But this powerlyte one peice speedline barrel amazed me.

Accuracy: I found that this barrel can litterally put one ball ontop of the other. However, the only time I found that the accuracy was not good was with a large bore sized paintball.

Noise: Even with this barrel's supreme accuracy, it is surprisingly quiet. It is obviously not the quietest barel out there, but trust me, it will act as a silencer.

Self Cleaning: The first time I played with this barrel I was amazed by it's accuracy, but then towards the end of the day I started thinkning that it was an average barrel. At the end of the day I was noticing that 1/10 paintballs were curving and the others were shooting fine. I was a little dissappointed, but then i took my barrel of my gun to realize that I had a broken ball in barrel. That's right the powerlyte barrel is so good at self cleaning that I was unable to notice it. Now how awesome is that?

Looks: Not all too bad, the barrel looks better in real life.

Paint: The only paint I do not suggest using for this barrel is large bore sized paint or really cheap/old paint. Usually the cheap paint I see tends to have ripplpes and bumps all over it. IMO these increase the paintballs bore size. In summary, do not use large bore sized paintballs with this barerl, the barrle with break abotu 1/200 large bore sized paintballs.
Conclusion: Even though I have the money, I feel this barrel is "good enough."
If only powerlyte made this barrel in a .692 bore size. Then it would probably be the only barrel that any one with a open bolt marker would need, especially for $50.
But then again it is only a $50 barrel, and it performs like $100 barrels.
