This is a great barrel. It has all the things you need, its quiet, nice looking and very accurate. It works very well on a Spyder Xtra and the 14" is great. It is also very light and durable. I would pick this over a Boomstick. Its also pretty cheap compared to the boomstick (Teardrop $40 Boomstick $100) and it works better.
I recommend this to anyone of any level of skill if you want to buy a boomstick and look good then do that but if you want to buy a teardrop and look and play good then do that, because its worth every penny.
