Well it is a good mix with a 2000 autococker. This barrel pushes my autococker to its maximum performance in accuracy. I have had this barrel for almost 2 months now and I have been shooting blaze through it and I have never broken a ball yet!!!! My squeegee is only used by my teammates, fellow players, and me when I occasionally shoot out my barrel plug. I used to have a boomstick and I have only seen improvements. It is a removable 2 piece and you can buy new fronts and have different barrel sizes. It is a great barrel in speedball. I have the 14". It is $10 cheaper than the boomstick and it looks cooler. They are made by the same company so there is no reason why a boomstick should be better.
This is the reason why I love this barrel so much. I can't think of anything I can put in this catagory.
I reccomend this barrel to serious rec ballers and tourney players and speedball fanatics. If you just play once in a while you should probably go for a lapco alluminum or a Custom Products because you won't really notice much of a difference in accuracy if you are not a one a week paintballer. Take it over a boomstick you won't regret it. This barrel is safe to use brittle paint with. It works great with low pressure guns. I believe it to be the best barrel on the market today. This barrel has nothing wrong that I see. So in my mind it is perfect. That means 10.
