Tippmann Pro/Carbine with 16 inch CMI Tru-flight barrel, Pure Energy 12 Oz. Co2 tank, and Standard hopper.
I guess any kind will work. But it doesn't hurt to get some good stuff.
Accurate when you need it.
Hard to fit in the Pro/Carbine Stock
Kinda difficult to clean the ports.
I'm only a newbie paintball player and don't know a whole lot. So take this and do what you want. I'm just stating what I know about this product from experience.
When I got my Carbine at Christmas, I know that the first thing to get was a new barrel. At the spur of the moment, I found this baby for less then $30. When I used it for the first time last weekend, I was not pleased at all with it. So I went out and got some better paint and this weekend I used our chronograph on it. That made a big difference.
I was getting people out like that! It was so nice on accuracy, maybe not the best but better then the stock. You could easily move around with it. Since it's aluminum ( I think), you don't have to worry too much about hurting it. But still take care of it.
It's much quieter then the standard.
When I used it, didn't break a ball at all while I was playing. At the end I was just shooting off my paint and a ball did break, but I don't think it messed up the accuracy too much. But too clean paint out of the ports, I'd use running water and dry it off really good.
My final conclusion is that this barrel is a sweet up grade form the standard. I suggest it to other beginners and those who play in the woods but wants something cheap and reliable.
8 out of 10
