Product Use:
Less than a month4 of 15 people found this review helpful.

2 years
Products Used:
Spyder compact 2 in 1 barrel, stock with gun, is better that Thunder Pig.
Spyder Flash LCD, now on my gun, is 5 times better than Thunder Pig.
True Flight rifled 12" barrel, on my son's Flash LCD now, is much better than Thunder Pig 21"
Marker Setup: Spyder Compact 2 in 1, Toxic Performance gravity feed hopper, ACI Bulldog compressed air 3500 PSI tank with regulator.
Shot Diablo Dusks and Pro gel filled paintballs
Strengths: It's intimidating at first look, then everything goes down hill.
Weaknesses: Breaks every 5th ball and 3 out of the other 4 don't make it 30 yards. The accuracy is the worst of any barrel I've ever used. For straight rifling and supposed no spin, only the balls which couldn't reach the target flew straight.
Sniper barrel??? What a joke!!!!! You couldn't count on hitting anyone more than 15 yards away and then you couldn't count on the ball breaking. I had my spyder turned up and as soon as I put the Spyder Flash barrel back on I put 15 balls in 18" pattern on a target 30 yards away with no breaks or wingers.
Now which barrel would you invest in?????
Conclusion: I hope someone at CMI is reading this and at least offers to accept this 21" barrel back for refund or credit. It was tried on a Spyder Flash LCD ESP with even worse results. Next time your playing, look around at who is lighting up the rest of the players and check out what barrel they're using. It is probably a 12" to 14" mid range priced barrel, nothing fancy. Go with it!!!!

Ummm are you guys total idiots? Yes oh i thought so. This barrel rocks if you had half a brain you would take a drill and stick a piece of rubber with a polishing agent on it and hone out the barrel.....*so many idiots in the world......

dude my 9" truflite is super accurate, with wal mart super swirls, as for being as accurate as my 14" j&j ceramic or my 12" teardrop, maybe not as go0d but u better believe this barel rules with the right sized paint

i dont have this barrel but i think you should like oil it and make sure your using the right sized paint that fits the barrel if you try all that and still dont work THEN you can say it sucks
