Period of
Product Use:

1 year
Products Used:
stock, j&j ceramic, pmi thunderpig, others
Marker Setup: tippmann 98 custom
14" empire twister barrel
i use RPS big ball cause their cheap and i'm cheap when it comes to buying paint
Strengths: -fairly quiet
-very accurate
-adds more range to your gun
Weaknesses: -breaks some balls every once in a while
Review: i think that this barrel goes great on the 98 custom because of the fact that it adds distance, quietness, and most noticebly alot more accuracy. it doesn't curve balls like the stock and it most definately doesnt sound like a cannon when you shoot with it. the main reason i wanted an aftermarket barrel was to improve my accuracy-and that's just what the twister barrel did.
Conclusion: it's definately a great buy for around $50 and if you have a 98 custom i would really recommend it to you if you want some better accuracy. i wouldn't recommend it to all the people out there who are looking for a super-silent barrel cause that's not what this is.

Gomster you are the RETARD for not understanding what he was saying...The twister still shoots the same distance but is more accurate at greater distances (MINE IS)! I can hit the same spot shot after shot at 75 to 95 feet. I was also amazed at how quite it is...I only hear the bolt on my 98C

yeah gomster i must admit that you are the moron here... longer barrels (up to 16" because after that the benefits are overwhelmed by friction) extend the EFFECTIVE range!

No, he didn't say anything in his review about effective range, just range. Gomster is correct. You other two are the idiots.

Is this barrel better than the flatline.

Here's the way I've heard it told.. Boomstick > Flatline > All. And then some Tippy fanboys will say this.. Flatline > All.

My high school Physics book talked about pitches with and without spin. If I remember correctly, rifling a ball will reduce the wind resistance and therefore increase range. By how much, I do not know.

I looked for the physics book with the example but could not find it. So I asked my college physics teacher. He did not know off hand. Next class, however, he had looked into it and yes, a rifled paintball will encounter less wind resistance<b/>.
