Products Used:
32 degrees night stick.
It's not as good as a linear.
Marker Setup: Diablo mongoose II reincarnation LED, 20z co2, Empire reloader, smart parts linear.
probably use x ball although i used those and walmart paint
the cheap paint still worked but the x balls hit the same spot from like 30 ft away in a busrt!
Strengths: Adds a lot of distance to your gun and accurate.

Weaknesses: Not as good at a far distance but thats not too suprising.
Review: Not only does the barrel look sweet on a mongoose, but it worked pretty well with most paints. I was picking off heads from at least 30 feet with wall mart paint which is satisfying. I managed to pin down and head shot my buddy who's been playin longer and has a wrath LTD (Wicked gun) from like 40-50 feet with xball. The barrel also cut down on sound and vibration which is good because the mongoose has a lot of vibration. this helped my screws stay in the gun for once and it helped with my hopper issues (the mongoose feed neck is too wide for the Empire reloader stem). In other words, my hopper falls off when i walk the trigger too much. Anyways, the barrel was very good for the price and i would recommend it in a second to any rec player or beginning team player like me.
Conclusion: Wicked barrel especially for the price. If you need a new barrel and are short on cash, definitely buy one. It works with almost all paints!
10 out of 10

Barrels dont add distance (except the apex and flatline).

A paintball leaving barrel A at 300fps wont go any further than a ball leaving barrel B from 300 fps. Understand?

try using a stock tippmann barrel and then try an aftermarket barrel and youll see the difference in distance. Sure they donat add any more power but the length of the barrel effects how straight and how far the ball will go. Try it and youll see.

If you're seeing a difference in distance, it's a drag issue. Turn the velocity up on the stock barrel and they'll go the same distance. Ballistic laws dont lie my friend ; )

Straiter, yes the barrel will help. Distance, no.

If a barrel is longer=ball goes straighter out of the barrel then there will be less drop= farther shot
Drag might be an issue cause the balls also stopped chopping when i put the knew barrel onthe velocity on my gun is chrono'd at 280 and there is a difference lol; )

But thanks for the input: )
