Products Used:
J&J 14", Flatline, Progressive
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 Custom, E-Bolt, Armson Stealth 16", Ricochet AK, Vertical Adapter w/ ACI 6 stage expansion, Evil Smokestack
TC Venom
Strengths: Accuracy
Weaknesses: Ball breakage clogs rifling
Review: well, this barrel is accurate and its affordable

I made accurate shots up to 50 yards

very consistant

it has less re-coil and volume since its rifled and ported

but like I said above If you bust a ball in the barrel you better have a squeegee cause you're accuracy is gone

this weakness is a rare one though I was shooting TC Venom and I shot 1000 balls with one bust, when I was cleaning the barrel however I got shot in the head.

I was able to make some pretty long range shots with it though, I shot a guy in the head through a knot hole in a 2x4 and now he has an Armson.

if you want a good barrel this is the one (for the good price)

----very good all around barrel
Conclusion: this is an excellent barrel, you can shoot consistantly and accuratly across a speedball course or you can terrorize you're buddies in the woods.

Go Armson

however I give it a 9 due to the fact that if you bust one you're SOL

Heheheh recoil has NOTHING to do with the barrel, recoil is created when the hammer/bolt moves and striked the paintball thus creating back pressure. No barrel reduces recoil because of its rifling. However if the barrel was say 5 pounds then that may reduce kick.

If you want the best barrel you can get for a tippmann, go for a flat-line

Oh yeah...paintballs can go VERY far...I shoot 50 yards all the time...for real unless your drunk you should be able to do that

I think he means 50ft accurately...

Nope, at an angle of 5*, a paintball will travel ~150 feet. At an angle of 10*, it will travel ~200 feet.
