Anything that is moderately consistent. No size preference needed, just don't shoot Brass Eagles through it.

And I mean it, this will shoot ANYTHING with the best accuracy I have ever seen.
Strengths: Very, very accurate. Not loud without porting. Accurate. Cheap. Accurate. Looks good. Accurate.
Weaknesses: A bit heavier than other barrels.
Review: Just got this barrel, and I loved it from the beginning. It looks great on my A-5. Dry fired a bit, and it really was NOT any louder than with my Snapshot or stock barrel. When I used it at the field, I was shocked and amazed. I had amazing accuracy, I almost couldn't believe it. At 20 feet it was literally ball on ball accuracy. It widened a bit as it got farther out, but it was never outside of a man sized target. I have never seen this accuracy with any other barrel or gun, be it Tippmanns, Spyders, Ions, Matrices or Egos.

Ah yes, the paint I was using? Diablo Nightmare. When I did a bounce test with this stuff, it ranged from 1 bounce to 10 bounces randomly. Basically, a bunch of them just break as soon as the air hits them. I would get 20-30 shots off, and then get a break. The barrel doesn't shoot well through breaks, but I'll test it further.

I just can't wait to see how this thing shoots with regular grade or high grade paint... I'm so excited...

At the field, I know at least one person who used a high end who was pretty amazed at the accuracy this thing was doing. I just never realized an A-5 could be this accurate.

Ok, I'm raving now. Anyways, this is the best barrel I have seen so far, I doubt it could be topped by anything...
Conclusion: Buy it, it is arguably the best barrel there is on the market. Works well with different paints and is amazingly accurate.

I noticed that they offer sever different bore sizes... on their "off the shelf" barrels.
(.685, .690)
What size did you get? Do you ever think you should have gotten the other size?
