Review: After my first experience paintballing, I knew that my stock setup, especially the barrel, just wasn't cutting it. I asked around quite a bit on different barrel upgrades and nearly everyone told me to get a Flatline. But lo and behold, as I walked in to the shop, the dude behind the counter told me about this new, really trick barrel he had out back called the Apex. I bought it without hesitation. After playing with it on the field, I, as well as everyone out there, was totally impressed with it's superior range and accuracy. My bone stock marker (at that time) was outranging some pretty serious setups, as well as the A5's w/ flatlines. I was also using some really doo-doo paint at the time, and broke maybye one or two balls out of a thousand. After I installed the response trigger and the egg2 hopper, I thought I was going to have mass breakage through the barrel when I put the marker into cyclic fire (I know it's not true auto), but nope! Not a single ball has broken through it in over six thousand shots! The shot bending stuff really works too, but it took a couple hundred shots to get proficeint using it. I feel like i'm cheatin' when i use the curve shots though, so I try not to use it as much anymore. The only drawback was the size of the end of the barrel (which is used for the variable settings). I found it a little akward shooting through holes, but the advantages far outweighed this minor inconvenience. I do know that once I purchase a new marker, I will definitely equip it with an Apex.
Conclusion: Buy this barrel. You will not regret your purchase. Many markers have adaptor kits that will accommodate this barrel. The range on this thing is amazing!
