Paintballs:
Pretty much anything except Brass Eagle and all paint like it. If you're shooting a cocker, make sure you match your bore size to the paint you are going to shoot.
Strengths: Very quiet, very accurate, very durable, looks good.
Weaknesses: It's heavy, the bore size is not what's stamped on it.
Review: I bought a 14 inch ACI combo barrel for my cocker a few years back. I found the barrel to be very quiet and very accurate. I have slid into bunkers, walls, trees...you name it...and the anodizing on the barrel has held up great. I have only two complaints regarding my combo barrel: 1) it's heavy, and 2) the bore size isn't what is stamped on the barrel. 1) The barrel has a stainless steel back, so it is going to be heavier than an aluminum barrel of the same length. 2) I bought my barrel in a .690 bore. It's not .690. I took a pair of mics to it and it measured .692. I thought it might be the mics, so I tried about 6 more...they all read .692. This isn't a huge difference, but it needs to be mentioned.
Conclusion: All in all I feel this is a very good barrel- quiet, accurate, durable. If you are looking to maintain a light setup, this isn't the barrel for you. I picked mine up for $35.00 at my local shop (the barrel had less than a case of paint through it when I bought it...so it was marked "used"). I noticed that this barrel retails for $70.00. Honestly, there are better barrels out there for the money...JJ Ceramic and All American to name a couple. Try to find a used one in good shape to get the best value.
