Hammerhead is better
Marker Setup: Dm5
14' Battlestik Hammerhead
Dye drop forward
Halo B
Anything with a thick fill and a round shell is good. I have read that thick fill works better with the spin created on the paintball by the barrel's rifling.
I am going to test new paintballs by Nelson called Special Forces paintballs. They are supposed to be absolutely round and have the thickest fill available.
I will also test the new Black ops paintballs that just came out a while ago.
Strengths: Best Accuracy
Very quiet dowrange
Perfectly match ball to barrel with the fins
Weaknesses: High price
The best is always expensive though
Review: I tested the 14' Hammerhead Battlestik (5 fin kit) against the 14' Dye ultralite that comes with the dm5. I shot scorch paintballs (basically crap paintballs.)
Our target was a tree about 150 feet away.
First off both barrels are great. The ultralite shot very well. The battlestik shot excellently however despite it being quite a windy day.
Even though the paintballs I shot were not that great they were still hitting their mark 7 out of 10 times with the Hammerhead.
I can't wait to test it with some good round paintballs.
Conclusion: I would recommend this barrel to the player who like myself enjoys aiming and taking a few well placed shots to get a kill instead of spraying 32 balls per second spray and pray style. Accuracy by volume is never as satisfying as getting that aimed shot off at 200 feet. If you get this barrel get the kit with the 5 fins so that you can perfectly match your ball to the barrel with whatever brand of paintball you happen to be using.
10 out of 10
