Please take this review seriously... I am speaking the truth.
this barrel is the biggest waste of money ever. the only thing the apex lived up to was the increased distance. That is only good if you just want to long ball people all day.
The accuracy of this barrel is almost the worst i have seen, at the maximum setting you cant even accuratly hit large tree's from distances that a flatline could easily hit, And in the sport of paintball ACCURACY is very very important.
Stick with a flat-line, it will be worth it in the long run
as much as i love tippmann, i have an apex on my X7, and i know u know that i know that u know the apex blows away the flatline away, and the reason u think the apex sucks is cus u ran your 3 year old monster balls through it and forgot to turn the apex effect on.
