1 year
Marker Setup: Black Smart Parts Ion
Pure Energy 72/3000 tank
Evo 2 w/ z board
Strengths: Accurate w/ right speed.
Looks good
Weaknesses: Curves balls when velocity is at speedball level (read review)
Review: This barrel is pretty good but when i play at my local speedball field and they check ur velocity and lower it the balls curve when you shoot. Besides that the barrel is good, i'd recomend using it on a tippman 98 (thats what i had it on before i sold my tippman, kept the barrel though).
Conclusion: Good barrel if velocity isn't set low, would reccomend this a lot for tippman 98 users. would give a 8.5 but ill give it a 9.

What do you mean by " Curves balls when velocity is at speedball level " then saying that your local field made you lower your velocity? you do realize that "Speedball" is usually considered Tourny ball, and the velocity rules are "no shot over 300 FPS and an average of 290 FPS. Your goggles are only designed to withstand those speeds anything else is unsafe. With that said I do know of some fields that lower the velocity for rec games so that more people are willing to play, but to say that you were told to lower to "Speedball" velocity is to say that you normally play with a "hot" marker and that is a dangerous situation to say the least.
