too many holes causing bad gas efficiency therefore decreasing your distance and power, too long (I prefer a 10" or 12" at the most, but I could only find this barrel in a 14") lengthening the barrel does not give you more distance or accuracy because the farther the ball has to travel through the barrel the more friction is produced which slows down the ball. The little 32 degrees sign fell off from the star, but it was ugly anyways so it doen't matter
this is a good barrel for the money. I got mine for 40 bucks. If you can save your money and buy an ACI Zero Gravity Combo barrel. Those are very accurate, light, and they make a rad sound.
Dispute: This reviewer's comments about the range and accuracy of the whisper barrel puzzle me. My experience has been that this barrel shoots much straighter than most of the other barrels on the field... and I play against some really good players!!! Guys who know what they are doing and what equipment works well. As a result of the straightness of shots, the effective range is greater. At 80% of this barrel's normal shot range (not lobbing), I get clusters of less than one foot. That's good enough for OSOK (one shot one Kill)... which is just what I did 2 weeks ago... when I only had 2 inches of target (the top of someone's head) (that shoot was 70-80 feet).
