Mostly any. Cheaap balls get you cheap results but anything will work in short range.
Strengths: Intimidation
Weaknesses: None by my standards
Review: I started paintballing over the summer with my friend. His setup was an X7 with a bigshot barrel and an apex tip. When I eventually got my gun and all the extras we would shoot in my backyard (up to 100 feet of straight open range). By comparison my gun was much better at grouping the paintballs than his and he was using a bigshot. At that range the apex made little to no difference. The barrel is amazing and I am keeping it rather than go apex or flatline. The price ($40) wasn't that bad either. My first objective was intimidation. With the above stuff on my gun it achieved great results. To use it on the field was amazing. I also get free air on the field so I have never had an air problem with it.

Story: I was on a field (can't remember the name) and behind an oil truck front tire well. There was a small hole that was the only area i was exposed to the enemy. The other guy was about 25 feet away and behind a jeep. Having a barrel this long I stuck it through the hole and had an extremely easy time of hitting this guys friend in the knee and then hitting the orignal guy.
Conclusion: I recommend. I don't recommend over the bigshot or the Apex. Everybody has their preferences and the other parts have proven vary good. However when it come to grouping shots and scaring your opponent the tac barrel is the way to go.
