Paintballs:
- still working on this one, gota order a bunch of different kinds to be sure, but the barrel performed superb with crappy field paint
Strengths: -looks (see below)
-accuracy (see below)
Weaknesses: -Paint curves like frigin BE when you break one in the barrel
Review: -looks (imho looks are at least as important as performance- fear factor involved)

-accuracy (paper plate (head sized) target - at 50 feet all shots hit- 2/3 hit ratio at 60-70 feet - God I love "one shot, one kill"

- I had one break in the barrel ( no fault of the barrel ) over the weakened, and I left my squeegee behind ( doh!) I tried to shoot it clean, but it didn't really work, and the balls curved like a mo-fo ( I got one of the curves to hit someone behind a bunker though... lol) - ended up using far to much ammo from the backfield, so I had to bunker people

ok, pricey, hard to find, maybe, but worth every penny. Heres the way I figure it, if I can cut my head shot hit ratio in half ( which ive more than done with crap paint) that means im using half as much paint ( at least, if not more, when you consider no more "warning shots" and time to duck), and if I assume 3 cents per round the means after ive shot 2666 rounds, Ive saved my self the $80 I spent on the barrel.

so it pays for it's self..... unless of course you like to spray and pray. in which case just go get some pvc and BE paint........
Conclusion: ok, im sure nothings perfect, but I gota counteract those freek low ratings, so a 10 it gets.

I don't want an ugly barrel, but I think performance is more important than looks. Nice review, though.

It is a good review, but I hate it when people say that the barrel shoots crazy when the ball breaks. Isn't that obvious? But this barrel becuase of the bore sizes does not break at all. But good review
