Depending on what bore size you have, I have a .689 and Draxxus pain is DEADLY, especialy Blaze
Strengths: Low Profile yet good looking
Fairly quiet
Very accurate
Light weight

Weaknesses: Somewhat hard to clean
Scratches easy
Review: Initialy I tested this barrel using several kinds of paint: Blaze, Marbs, Zap Chronic, and Midnight. I snap shot a pod sitting on a bunker about 30 feet away. The Brass Eagle was obviously crap, and it didn't shoot strait and I didn't expect it to. Next I tried the Zap, and it shot much better, however it was a bit big and I had sevral brakes. Same with the Marbs. Then I tried the Draxxus, they were both very, very accurate. I hit the pod with a short string of paint, and the pod fell with sevral paint marks, beautiful. Out of the two I would say that the Blaze shot better, but to tell you the truth any medium-high quality .689 paint should shoot well thru it. After a few weekends with this barrel it has a few scratches but still shoots great. One major problem I have noted is that it is really hard to clean due to the lack of sufficint porting, however the incresed acuracy I have noticed due to that porting design more than makes up for it.
Conclusion: If you wan't a cheap barrel with good perfomance this is in my opinion the way to go. I don't claim it to be as good as most DYE barrels or the All American, but I can't seem to find a DYE or All American barrel for 30$

I tend to be verry pickey about my gear, and this is deffinatly an above average product, I give it a solid 7
7 out of 10

i heard if you put a paper towel in one end and dry fire it cleans very well.
