strong paintballs such as evil paintballs or pmi big ball
it is ridiculously long . It has incredible accuracy w/ evil paint
any balls except top of the line the balls will break a lot.
This barrel is tempting to buy because of it's extreme length but like I said I understand why a lot of people are giving this a bad review and if you can/do get good paint then this is the best spyder barrel That you can get for the money or maybe just the best period.
Actually I was wrong the reason balls break in the barrel is because if you shoot too fast
with the 21 inch that I have the problem is that when you fire too fast, once you fire a ball and another one drops in and you fire the first ball is still in the barrel and the Co2 is creating a back pressure which makes the ball break. I will admit you need to use good paint but not top of the line, so spend five bucks more on paint and don't fire as fast and it is a good barrel and probably the most accurate. SO ALL YOU IDIOTS STOP BAD MOUTHING THIS BARREL.

this barrel is actually 21 inches, but it still is bad. tests have shown that the optimum barrel length for paintball is 12-14 inches, after that there is to much drag, and it takes lots of gas to push the ball out, so the range actually goes down.
That makes no sense. Why would you aim with the tip of your barrel? Nobody I know actually does that. You should know your gun well enough to know where you are shooting. 12"-14" has been proven to be the most accurate and efficient barrel lengths. Anything longer will slow the ball down and get in your way. If poor gas efficiency and poor mobility is a personal choice, then I guess you're right. But he is still an idiot for doing so.
