Paintballs:
Any mid quality, medium to large bore paint.(marbalizer works awesome!!)
*see th bad below
Strengths: -Comes in many colors and is tough to scratch
-very quiet
-rarely breaks paint
-pretty accurate
Weaknesses: Whenever paint that is either low quality or too small for the bore size for a good barrel to paint match, paintballs just seem to bounce more often. This, of course, has happened to me at the most in-opportune of times i.e. an opponent is running at me for a bunker manuver. Also I reccomend a 12" barrel for your marker. Any larger and you are just wasting air from your gun to shoot.
Conclusion: This barrel is great for players whose marker is a bit on the loud side. It is accurate with most types of paint and definitely better than most/all stock barrels.It is just right for the price.

Dude, the paint doesnt bounce off people because of the barrel, it bounces because its bad paint. You just need to get paint that is the right size and better quality. And the longer the barrel, the less air you use because the air is pushing the ball for a longer amount of time though the barrel.

That is mostly correct. Once a barrel reaches a certain length, however, the air will have caused the paintball to reach its maximum velocity. Anything longer than that will slow the paintball down with friction. That length is usually around 12 to 14 inches.
