Products Used:
freak barrel kit taso windforce 14" pmi razor 14" all american 14" boomstick 14" smart parts precision barrel 14" autococker stock barrel tippmann stock barrel pirhana stock barrel
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98c Black 16" 32 degrees Sniper Barrel DYE Grips Psycho Ballistics Drop Forward 14oz Co2 Tank with on/off valve 6 cell ACI Subzero Expansion Chamber Full Boar Shadow Star Fire Bolt Double Trigger Kit 12 Volt Revy With X-Board
JT Maxim RPS Premium Marbalizers Diablo Hellfire Proball and most other medium bore size paints.
Strengths: I purchased this product for 60 bucks around a year ago from 888pball after reading sum reviews on the site i was crunched between this and a lapco. After trying my friends lapco bigshot i realized it was good but i was looking for more accuracy i didnt like the arch shots. So i took a gamble and went with the 32 degrees. Great Barrel for the money! Shoots strait excellent accuracy with the right paint. At around 285fps i was nailing ppl with a few shots from over 250 feet. Cool story, my friends and i play pump ball all the time we use talons and blades and just run up to eachother and shoot. I had just gotten my sniper barrel 2 days earlier and i wanted to test it so i told my friends my talon broke and i needed to use my m98c. At first they said no but after a while they let me. I was given 20 shots to kill at least 3-5 ppl. So im walking along this kid pops up around 120 feet away with his head sticking above this mound he takes a shot at me and it whizes by so i turn around and point the barrel at him and take two shots as quick as i can. The shots fly like darts and nail him right inbetween the eyesand his whole mask is covered in JT Maxim yellow paint. From then on i was hooked on this barrel. This barrel is Great for woodball and playing at open fields or with friends.
Weaknesses: Its a bit more expensive than lapco and CP but i love it. It's length can be annoying. My M98c was like a 3 1/2 foot rifle until i got a good dropforward. closecombat is HARD because of length this is not a speedball barrel! Ive heard that the back part of the barrel where the silver meets the black can break apart and ruin the barrel! I havent had problems with this but it does happen. If u dont use the right bore size paint they curve like crazy. I had my velocity at 340 and was using JT Maxim which are very small and they would curve severely for the first like 10 shots! they would curve so much that the gun would only shoot 20 feet or so before the ball smashed into the ground!
Conclusion: Anyway this barrel can keep up with the higher end barrels such as boomies and aa's and its worth every penny of ur investment its much better than the stock m98 barrel! If you run nitro or have atleast a expansion chamber this barrel owns! Just use marbalizers and ur set! This barrel works like a dream with marbs! play at around 285fps or so! Great for short-medium range accuracy its pinpoint under 120 feet!
10 out of 10
