Period of
Product Use:
3 months13 of 14 people found this review helpful.

3 years
Products Used:
16" Empire Twister Barrel- (i'd recommend) 16" J+J Ceramic Barrel, (also great) Smart Parts All-American barrel, (awesome)
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98, 21" CMI Tru Flight Barrel and a teardrop & flatline, sight rail, scope, red dot laser sight, lapco direct feed, viewloader elbow, empire loader, CAR stock, R/T system, expansion chamber, a double trigger, a 5" drop forward, and a bipod
nothing cheap, brass eagle etc. i've been using zap paintballs, all i can afford anymore, yet i havn't had one break yet.
Strengths: Good Accuracy
Quieter than stock
Looks intimidating
Weaknesses: Little louder then I wanted
A little bit too long
Shoots a little short
Review: First I want everyone to realize that the people who have been leaving bad reviews, are all carrying a spyder or something other then a Tippmann. For me it was a stupid choice to by a 21 in barrel, who honestly even needs something that long? It's rather loud, but the accuracy can make up for it. For the money, it's a great barrel, especially for sniper set-up i have. It works great with any Tippmann Gun. For the people giving the bad reviews, check the barrel. It has more than one way of screwing together, my cousin screwed it in wrong and found the same results that most of you guys are describing. It's a little long to have to carry around for woodsball, but if you end up being a camper, its not bad. It doesn't put much of a spin on the ball, so if you are looking for something that does, try a flatline, or the Empire Twister barrel. Whether this is helpful or not, the barrel is a great choice for any paintballer, with a little lean towards the beginner side. i would use it for a few months and would maybe look into a different barrel for the upgrade.
Conclusion: It's a good buy, especially for the money.

Looks A-
Accuracy A
Noise B+
Distance B+

For a beginner- give it an 8
amatuer- 6-7
pros - (since i'm not there yet) i'd probably give it a 5
I gave it the eight because it ends up eating up the velocity on the ball, and doesn't get the distance thats hoped for, and it's pretty loud for the use that it's intended for.
So i guess i say go for it.
