medium bore to small
Strengths: awesome in cosistancy...very tight grouping...didnt not break any paint while i was using it.. makes an awesome sound when its wizzing by ur head.....the rifling does put side spin on the i dont know what the person of the review a few below is talking about... its not gonna add any distance to your shot...but what it will do is make it more iwll actually arch to the right alil bit in long range....but will practically hit the same spot every time so u know where your shots going
Weaknesses: its slightly sligns to the right at long distance....but not really bad....not enough to care about
Conclusion: i would definetly reccomend this said below it was very cosistant with many type of paint ....go get 'em tiger
10 out of 10

A consistent curve to the right is proof of the rifling. As the ball begins to drop and direction curves downward, what started as rifling will turn into side spin.

Actually rifling if done properly can add distance to your shot. It's not the same as backspin which creates a high pressure zone below your ball creating lift and making it 'float' farther, but rifling will help push air to the sides of the ball and create less air resistance, letting it keep it's velocity/energy longer resulting in a slightly flatter trajectory and slightly more distance. However this effect is not huge like it is with a backspin system...but it does exist.

I should point out I'm NOT saying this barrel does this. I don't know if this barrel rifles properly and puts good rifling type spin on the ball or not. I'm just saying from a physics standpoint a rifle type spin on a ball can gain some extra distance, which is what this review seems to contradict.
