Strengths: Price - who can't afford a $50 barrel?
Weight - this thing is one light barrel, any lighter and my gun would be unbalanced
Accuracy - we did a shooting test between my tricked cocker and my friend's who had a 14" dye boomstick. we both ran marballizers from the same box and i was more accurate 5 outa 7 times.
Efficency - This is one gas saving barrel. it isn't heavily ported like the Dye or Smart Parts are. This allows you to run a lower pressure while maintaining the same volume of gas spent thus you can drain your tank more, equaling more shots.
Self Cleaning - This barrel handles breaks MUCH better than the heavily ported ones. It can even blow out almost all of the left over paint still in the barrel. I rarely get breaks but when i do i'm glad i have this barrel handy, i dont' even carry a squeegie anymore in tournaments.
Weaknesses: Not much choice in color or length. I personally wanted a 12 inch but others may want a slightly longer barrel. Its tight bore limits its use to only small to smaller medium paints. I have had some great experiences with 32 degree's team colors paint as long as its not more than 4 months old. Not too strong, mine has a ding on it which actually left a very small imprint on the inside of the barrel but it hasn't affected my shooting accuracy at all yet.
Conclusion: Its great for the money, its self cleaning, its light, efficient and accurate what more could u want out of a 50 dollar barrel?
10 out of 10
