Review: Ive been doing barrel tests for many barrels out on the market for some time now, just trying to find which designs seem to work better. A hammerhead with a .688 fin with an overall length of 12 inches was used with matching paint. Truth is, the Hammerhead performed admirably during the trials proving itself to be slightly more accurate over a dye UL and a stiffi one-piece.

Accuracy is the product of quite a few things people neglect:
consistency: a good consistent regulator
Accuracy of shooter: If you cant shoot you wont hit anything. Most players believe theyre decent shots, but until you can hit a paintball tossed into the air, you havent truly mastered aiming. Years in the military will teach you to hold a gun steady.
good paint: Find the best you can get. THIS IS KEY!!!!

First shots were always more on target than other barrels and noticeably less outliers (balls that would curve away from the shot grouping) were observed than both the UL and Stiffi. Is it possible that I just got lucky witht he outliers? well I used up 3 cases of paint in that test and my wallet screams to me. If thats lucky Im going to shoot myself. No chops were observed, even under rapid fire situations.

Sound is indistinguisable from a UL or Stiffy from 40ft away and greater.
Slightly on the heavy side.

I did not test with fins/paint larger or smaller than .688. Notice while the fin is .688 the barrel ID itself very closely matches the fin at .687. For all intents and purposes, it shot like a one-piece as opposed to a 2-piece breech sizer system.
Conclusion: Too early to tell for me if the price is worth it, but this barrel performed slightly better than a dye UL and a stiffi. All barrels were of the same size and all paint matched all barrels. The HH came out on top.
