anything if you can get it to shoot straight.
sound down range is minimal, light.
rifiling, backs are too short in my opinion
I was skeptical about rifiling. I read all teh reviews here and the testamonials on thier site. I was sold that this thing would be the answer! Boy was I wrong. This barrel is very accurate upto about 35 feet. After that, the balls corkscrew, curve, drop...not in a consistant pattern, but all over the place. I tried it out with marbs, big ball, hellfire, evil, blaze, ultra evil, ultimate chronic, I really wanted to see this thing work. All balls shot about the same give or take a few inches in the patterns at closer range. Just for comparison, I put on the stock Progressive barrrel and out-shot it by a mile. Very disappointing. The fit and finish was very good, very well made, but not worth it. I bought it on ebay for less than 1/2 the selling price, wouldn't do it again for 1/2 of what I paid. Buy a thunderpig, you will be much happier.
It doesn't deliver on the promise of ball-on-ball accuracy. Don't buy it.
Did you turn you pressure down? Because on rifeled barrels you have to turn down your pressure. You cant have high pressures on a reifled/spiraled barrel. The ball comes through the barrel too fast and it spins and hooks and curves like crazy. The same thing happened with my Empire Twister. I thought it was broken, but I turned down my pressure, and now I can put balls from 65 feet away on a 6 inch radius. So turn down ur pressure, it should work fine.
READ snuff, READ. He said he tried a bunch of different paintballs. If that isn't using a product, I don't know what is. How can you say if he used it right or not? You don't know how he shot it, so do us a favor, shut up.

THE HAMMERHEAD TIP IS A .687 TIP!!!! EVEN IF YOU HAVE A FIN KIT, NO PAINT OVER 687 WILL WORK ANYWAY!!!
i was told this by the father who owns the company at a trade show.
That's hilarious. The entire point of a kit is that the back (5-8 inches) gets the ball up to speed and is the most important to your paint to bore fit. The front is ussually a good .7 to get the ball situated in air before leaving making it more accurate. The fins are like an inch, that makes this actually the least effective back ever made! YAY FOR HH! Any book will tell you that the first 5-8 inches of a barrel are the most important to your accurracy and these barrels do not provide that length.
