2008 planet eclipse ego with 14" 0.691stiffi barrel, Stako tank (0.7kg not allowed in the U.S :P), 4500 guarilla air FUKU reg, empire magna.
anything to be honest
-shoot good through chops
- Cant use polishers(fluffys)
Great barrel! iv used it for 6 months now and i cant say anything bad. i got it in .691 due to the fact that were spnsored by tomahawk paintballs and the maximum ball size they come in is .691 or very rarly .692(max sizes)
whats great about this product is that it takes of all the weight from the front of the marker so you dona have that extra weight on the front, personaly that helps me with "off the berak shooting", "snap shooting", "diving" and running of course. very accurate barrel.
another thing that i was amazed by was the way this barrel can shoot so accurate even when you chopped a couple of balls, alot of the time i might not even clean the barrel during game cos it really aint that bad (unless iv got time, or enough live players).
also durabilty of carbon fiber, iv dived and hit the barrel a couple of times and also got run over while it was in my bag by a small car(dont ask how). Still like new
The only problem i find is that its not recommended by stiffi to use a polisher(fluffy) cos it might damage the barrel, how? i really dont get why but anyway....
Price in europe is a bit high, but all good quality products are expensive i guess. you get what you pay for....
as for paintballs, we have been using zap spank for practise and nelson hemorage/tomahawk paintballs for tourneys, and the accuracy on both for the type of balls they are is very pleasing. i live on an island in the mediteranian(cyprus), so by the time the balls get form the "states/canada" to europe and get down to us there not exactly round but this barrel dont understand a thing!
Great barrel recommed it to any tournament player if they can afford it. need some extra care than most barrels but worth every penny.... it gets a 9 from me for the reason not been able to use a polisher and the extra care it needs(cracking, snapping, and thread tearing apart due to mis use)
9 out of 10

i know how you feel with paint supply.
i live in New Zealand and the only paint we get is WGP - killabeez, toxic, sometimes elixir.
they're not always round and sometimes they're a bit soft.
we have to get paint in shipping containers (bulk buy) so paint is often old... =(
im amazed that you guys live in cyprus and still get sponsors!
the med is a great place - hot babes, the weather, the beach.... oh i want to go back to menorca sooo badly!
