Paintballs:
it doesnt matter...this will shoot anything...but it will still be crap
Strengths: its accurate...looks nice...overall, ok
Weaknesses: pricy, poser-barrel(boomy wannabe), not accurate enough
Review: ok...i got this barrel when i first really got into paintball about 2 years ago...i wanted to be a "sniper"...and i wanted a long-a** barrel so that i could "snipe" everyone else out. trust me, i was an idiot

if ur gonna get any barrel, get one that's at most 12". when i got it, everyone was saying that the best barrel length was 14", so i thought that i would be out of the ordinary and have a super-accurate barrel.

its accurate, i mean...i guess it would be if it werent so long. having a longer barrel requires the ball to travel longer inside it. this leads to increased friction between the ball and the barrel. no matter how well u hone a barrel, the friction will mess with the accuracy. at the same time, u need to guide the ball while it is still accelerating, which is about 6-7" from the point where it leaves the gun itself.

the biggest problem i had was its length. im supposed to be a front player, and with a 16" barrel on a spyder, i've jammed it into bunkers. pain in the a**.
Conclusion: its fairly accurate, i mean, better than ur stock on a spyder, but imo, not accurate enough. i was using my stock barrel last time i played.

despite that, its price(at least when i got it) is over-the-top and ridiculous. trust me, you'll be happy spending the money on a jt 2-piece or a dye ultralite.

You can't compare a Spyder to a Cocker for accuracy...Thats like comparing apples to oranges. If you have the time, get another aftermarket barrel to test. Thats the only way to get a good idea of the improvement over other barrels.
