Review: I got this barrel kit with my SL8R. The following has been my experience thus far.

Upon getting the gun, i assembled a barrel and held it up for comparison next to a DYE UL. The UL, mind you, has probably one of the best finishes in the industry.

Well, upon inspection, the SL kit seemed to have an even BETTER finish. Apparently, it's possible.

I took it to play at my local field, and in short, as long as you get the right back, this barrel will literally put ball on ball. During a particular game I broke a ball, and didn't notice until I went to clean my gun out at the end of the day. These will shoot through breaks easily, and will self clean within a few shots.

As a last point, they're very versatile and non-picky. I've put everything from seconds to Marbalizers through them and this set up has shot them all like a champ.

More updates to this review as I keep using the kit.
Conclusion: At present, this kit stands as the best barrel system I've ever used. They're rare, but if you can, get a hold of them. Eclipse makes their barrels hold up to the standards of their markers, which is saying something.
