Barrels:
A quality barrel with the right bore match...duh!
Strengths: Cheap, breaks good
Weaknesses: Large seams, lots of irregularities, not very accurate, easy to wipe, watery thin fill
Review: I have shot about 1500 of these now. I have only had two barrel breaks with them so far, which I would blame on irregular balls. (My maker is pretty easy on paint since it's low pressure. So, maybe they would break in other guns from the force of the bolt? I dunno...) The accuracy of these, especially over long distances, is less than desirable (lots of curves). At short distances, they're usable. They break well, but the fill is very thin and easy to wipe. I liked that they were very cheap ($35 for 2000). Other cheap paint I've tried hasn't performed as well.
Conclusion: For rec/woods ball or messing around, these are alright. They are definitely not for tournaments. I will probably buy them again because they are cheap, but that would be the only reason why. If you have more money to spend, go with RPI or Diablo.

Edit 09/08/2003:
Having had more experience and the opportunity to shoot several types of balls recently, I down grade my opinion of these. (From 7 to 5) They are woefully inaccurate. Still cheap, but only good for rec ball and close quarters.
