4 years
Products Used:
boomstick, stock barrels, Xcel
Marker Setup: Silver Bullet, .689 10" CP classic barrel, 20oz CO2, CP lightning drop with on/off
Severe Typoon
Strengths: Looks good,
fairly accurate,
& price
Weaknesses: Picky about paint & temp,
doesn't clean well.
Review: I overall didn't like the barrel but I did buy it used so I don't knnow how far from new it was or how the previous owner treated it but it was very picky about the paint. The only paint I found that shot well was Severe Typoon. Unfortunately for me it isn't made anymore. With typoon it shot well, until I chopped that is. It didn't clean itself well at all. Furthermore it was very loud.

I will concede that I bought it used so I can't say anything about how good it is new. I noticed in mine that there was small scratches lengthways down the barrel. Also my barrel was only 10" so that may have contributed to the noise and the inaccuracy. I really don't like my gun which would be part of the problem too.
Conclusion: Given the right conditions and paint its a good deal. Certainly don't get anything shorter than 1'. Also for all the newbs reading this ignore all the bad reviews from the idiots that only use one kind of paint or just had a bad time playing. Alot of the barrel's accuracy depends on finding a good matching paint. Don't look for a barrel that just talks about composites and accuracy. What you really want is consistency. I doesn't matter where the ball goes as long as it goes there again and again.

You had a deffective barrel (scratches down the bore) you can post a review based on a deffective product, and certainly not lower the overall rating of a product because the person who had the barrel before you didn't take good care of it.
