Paintballs:
I have used and done well with Chronic, Pro Ball, X-ball Gold, Ink'd and Spank. we practice with Spank.
Strengths: Quite and Light
Weaknesses: Wish they came with more backs.
Review: I use the Stealth barrel. I like the flat finish and the weight is very nice. Having the backs weight right up against the marker helps keep the marker balanced and makes change of direction easier. Here are my Pro's, Con's and In betweens.

Pro's.

Weight- While the barrel is light, much lighter feeling than other barrels I have at my disposal. I feel the fact that the backs carry most of the weight of the barrel to the rear. Keeping the center of gravity near the marker and making chnage of direction and position very easy. Don't be fooled this makes a big difference.

Quiet- I noticed that the sounds coming out of the barrel are smoother and deeper. This is nice because they will be covered up by the voices and shooting of other markers.

Accurate- I would put this barrel on par with the Freak kit with All American front ( my personal favorite). To me that is a very high compliment.

Con's

Backs- I wish the kits could be had with more sizes ( though I dont really need them). It just is nice to know you have the exact right size all the time.

Umm that is not a very big con sorry.

In Between's- The costs of different length fronts is kinda high. I usually only us 14" barrels but hey I may need a different barrel someday.
Conclusion: As far as barrel kits go this is the one to buy. I love my freak kits. I have Three, they are just as quiet. I just find that the way the SLY barrels are weighted and the sound that comes out is just suits me better.

I give it a 10. The best barrel I have ever had used.

10 out of 10
