Strengths: Very High Quality Construction
As accurate as the Boomstick
Lighter than Boomstick
Cheaper than Boomstick
Removable Tips make more versatile
Weaknesses: Doesnt come in Different Bore Sizes
Conclusion: I had a Boomstick on my Spyder, it shot great. When I got a Micromag, I wanted to try something different.

In wood games, I saw ppl using 16 in barrels, while on the Speedball fields, I saw ppl using 10 in barrels. At first, I was thingking to go with either a 14 or 12 to have a compromise, that was until I got this barrel. I liked the tip style, so I got this barrel in a 14 in length. In addition, I also bought a 10 in tip. I now have a 10 in and 14 in barrel all rolled into one.

The performance? It shot great, as accurate as a Boomstick, or any other piece of polished tube meant to shoot out paintballs. The difference is in the verstality in the tips. I can now use a 10 in for speedball, then a 14 for woods.

In addition, there was rumors saying that the bore sizes werent consistent, saying that they would vary in the bore size more down the barrel you go. I brought my barrel to a machine shop to see if this was true, the machinist used a insde micrometer, and I found out that my barrel was consistent 0.687 all the way down. So those shoddy milling/honing rumors about j&j are false.

These are great barrels if you match the paint up and screw the tip all the way down. I give this a 10 because it performs the same as the legendary Boomstick, but alot cheaper and lighter, and more versatile. It onlu comes in one bore size, but I shoot All Stars all the time anyway.

Get this barrel, you wont regret it!!!
10 out of 10
