Review: Well, to start, i play bushball. This is Not a Bushball Barrel. This barrel, probably shouldn't even come A-5 threaded. its very picky with paint ive found. WIth a Good paintmatch (i found X-ball gold worked well more often then not, silver is Ok, stay away from "walmart brand" paint and other cheaper stuff. Evil works best.) it will out preform anything on the field accuracy wise. I Love it when its working, but 9/10 games its gooped with paint. its great to be able to switch the backs for a different day. Make sure you got the right bore for your paint before any round. Paint swells during the day and the Ultralite doesn't like that. I'm at least 20% of the time i'm swabbing paint outa it. I'd suggest it more for some one with a fancy 'cocker or other high end gun on the speedball side of the spectrum. No good for an A-5 with cheap paint.
Conclusion: I give this an eight because it is a Very well built barrel and can preform crazy good when a good paint match is found. But if you want to spend the extra on paint, dont get it, it shreds stuff like Zap and X-ball bronze. Look for something different if you play woods or scenario. Possibly JJ ceramic?
8 out of 10

J&j is great, its prolly your gun, because the ultralite on my DM4 rocks, a-5 is prolly too hard on paint

A-5s have no anti chop systems, such as vision eyes or anti chop bolts, so you should get a better gun, at least an ion(IONs are great, at least = get a good gun, not a beginner gun like an A-5)
