Paintball
Experience:
1 year
Similar
Products Used:
I've used quite a few barrels, but the only one I can say is similer is the J&J Ceramic.
Marker Setup: Shutter
Force III Cyclone
10" CP 1-Piece
Revvy/xb
20oz
Recommended
Paintballs:
RPS Slam Ball
RPS Star Ball
Strengths: Price -- $22.00

Quality -- Outstanding quality throughout. . .Glossy anodizing on the outside, and an extremly smooth, shiny finish on the inside. No imperfections what-so-ever.

Weight -- Since its aluminum, its very light. . .which means it won't make your gun front heavy like alot of Stainless barrels.

Consistancy of acuracy -- Pick a target 20 yards away, and land balls within 4 or 5 inches of eachother. . .With a regulator, balls will land on top of eachother. . .no joke.

Air Efficiency -- Since its not full of holes, it is very good on gas efficiency. . .I can shoot 1200 balls on a single 20oz fill. Its great for LP setups because there's a whole 7" before porting, so your bals can excelerate. On longer lengths, there's more "effective" barrel.

Looks -- Simple, yet, sexy

Very little ball breaks. . .

Come in 10 -16" Lengths

Comes with a drawstring barrel bag

Weaknesses: The bore is a bit on the small side. . .Which means Marbalizers won't fit.

Can't shoot through breaks worth a damn

The 2003 models aren't easy to find right now.

Its not 100 dollors so you don't have many bragging rights when you get this barrel.

Not acurate or consiatant at long distances. (this could be because I have the 10")

When my mom put the barrel bag through the wash, the "Custom Products" logo got all screwed up. . .
Conclusion: If you're on a tight budget like me, this is the best barrel you could possibly get new. For 22 dollors with a barrel bag. . .you just cannot go wrong.

But because no product is truly perfect, and because they don't shoot through barrel breaks, I give it a 9 (. . .I really wish there was a 9.5 option. . .)

um...who really brags about the expensiveness of their barrel, just kill tons of people and have them come up to you afterwards asking "what barrel did you light me up with?" And don't let your mom wash all your stuff do some of your own laundry. But besides that it was a good review.

In math you tend to round anything .5 or above to the next whole number. Ex: 9.5 -> 10

ive never seen a barrell that makes a gun "front heavy" there is just no way that a barrell can weigh more than the marker and the tank

lol its annoying how ppl with high end markers and put a team name as there sn think they know more then people with spyders. There is such thing as kinda accurate cuz no pb barrel is accurate b/c paintballs always have backspin on them and the liquid inside doesnt let it go in a very straight path which sounds like being unaccurate. and porting and airaffincy have alot to do with the barrel gj u just proved to be a dumbbutt<_<

I find it annoying how the true noobs judge people's skill level by their gun. Come try that strategy with Tippmann Sean out at my field, and get gogged by a mech 98.

Yeah, exactly, let your barrel speak for you
