Review: I absolutely love this barrel. I've had it for 4 years and i do not plan on getting a new one. Accuracy and noise is phenomonal. Many times have i shot people without giving away my position. Yes, mine is a 14'' , but that does not have anything to do with distance. Longer barrels DO NOT make your paint go farther (with the exception of the flatline). BUT they do keep your accuracy straight for a longer distance. Velocity is what makes paint go farther, not the barrel (except the flatline of course). Let's talk about distance...

I play baseball. I am the catcher.I have been sitting behind home plate for 7 years. Therefore, it is easy for me to judge distance. From home plate to second base is 120'. For woodsball, that really isn't that far, for speedball it is. This barrel ( with my settup) is consistantly accurate at distances up to 150'. That is what you want if you play woodsball. I am sick of seeing these reviews that say ''my barrel is accurate at 85' '' Even the stock barrel can do that. So please, don't let this fool you. 85' is not long at all. For speedball, that is great, but not woodsball.
Conclusion: If you have money to spend, i would suggest a boomstick or one of smart parts higher priced barrels. I would not suggest a flatline for anyone. The flatline only works if your velocity is 270 fps or higher, but it still isn't that accurate. The whisper is what you need. 30 bucks, amazing for its performance.
I give this a 9 because NO barrel is perfect.
