Products Used:
Marker Setup: Longbow
Hammerhead BattleStixx
Remote Line
Any high quality(so that ball sizes are more uniform)
Strengths: ACCURATE!!!
When flies past you sound intimidating
Weaknesses: Thicker paint will not allow shoot through
Review: The Hammerhead BattleStixx are amazing. I just got them and went out to play. I used to use a Stiffi, not any more these things are much more accurate. The rifling puts a spin on the ball allowing less air to effect its flight path. This also has the added bonus of makeing an intimidating whining noise as it flies past the OPFOR. Its relatively quite, it sounds louder to the user because of the reverse poting.

On the down side, if you put in a too small insert every ball will break; if your paint isnt all mostly the same size it will break, and if its anyt hicker than water and breaks. it will not shoot very well, be prepared to squeegee it.
Conclusion: This is in my opionion the most accurate barrel kit available.
10 out of 10

I don't disagree with you on the fact that the hammer head is a good barrel, but some of your facts are off. rifling works because of angular momentum , or the moment of inertia times angular velocity (the rotational equivalents of mass and velocity) and the law of conservation of momentum . not because of what you said, It's a similar concept to a gyroscope. Also, I don't think that "thicker paint" won't let you shoot through. I prefer using thicker filled paint in mine. perhaps you mean larger diameter?

Also paint fired from smooth bored barrels makes about the same noise as that fired from barrels that add spin i.e. HH, flatline, apex, from my experience. Sooo, I don't know if that makes it any better than any other barrel, I've been on both ends of the HH, and there is no whine.

Also, not everything special ops says is true, aka. hype. Its mainly meant to sell stuff to spoiled teenage boys with parents who buy all their gear, hype usually works, the product may or may not, lol. Do your part in stopping its spread by keeping reviews objective and use quantitative, not qualitative statements, no matter how big of a cool factor the product has. (It's hard, I know = ), but it makes for a better review.
