Review: I decided that I needed a barrel kit after a disastrous scenario game where my balls were smaller than the barrel. As a result, the balls would veer madly once propelled from my gun. The scenario host suggested a barrel kit.

I started checking around on price and ran into kits that cost $100 or more. Too much.

Then, I found the 7-piece version of this kit on eBay and won it for the low, low price of $30! Not bad for what started as a $200 barrel kit!

I have since used this kit twice. One time, the balls were different sizes and too brittle (see my review on Draxxus Blaze paintballs). Last time, the .689 back fit the RPS Premiums I was using perfectly. I had no barrel breaks; the one break I had left no trace in the barrel so it must have been popcorning or something else.

My shots flew straight and true. I was able to shoot between multiple trees and branches to get to my target most of the time. If they were in the open, I had no problem reaching them even from a good distance.

The only problem with this kit is that it seems to be discontinued and the company no longer seems to exist.
Conclusion: If you can find it, get it. It'll probably be cheap and the value is outstanding.
