Paintballs:
Fired 5 types of paint through it with no issues. As always though, get good paint. Cheap paint doesn't do well with any barrel
Strengths: Looks really cool
Accurate
Lots of choices for barrel tips / muzzles
Weaknesses: Price (lot higher than most barrel kits)
Not as many options with barrel length
Review: I have used J&J Edge barrels for around 5 years and have loved them. Had heard a lot about these barrels but was skeptical. I had a friend selling one of these barrels with 5 fins, so I figured I'd give it a try. I tried to go in with an open mind.

I was very surprised at how accurate this barrel was. Still doesn't make sense to me because the rifling isn't supposed to do anything to help, but it does work. This was more accurate than my J&J Edge Elite barrel kit with comparable sized back. Did several tests with 5 different brands of paint.

Used this through a whole 2 day scenario game and loved it. I ended up selling my J&J kit to buy this one from my friend at the end of the scenario.

I wanted a 14" barrel so the lack of different lengths didn't bother me, and Hammerhead does sell other barrels with different lengths anyways.

Main drawback to this barrel kit is the cost. Around $200 new for the kit I have with the barrel, muzzle, and 5 fins. I do like the fact that you can buy the barrel with 1 or 2 fins, and then buy the extra fins later.
Conclusion: If you have the money for this kit, it is one of the better ones out there. It is worth getting.

I gave this an 8 out of 10 due to the high cost.
