Looks mean. Very Quiet. Light, but not too light. Great price!!
Nothing really, does'nt seem to shoot cheap paint very well, see conclusion.....
I actually took this barrel out and did some "testing". I shot at two different targets (a tire rim hanging from a wall and an old car door) from about
75 feet (25 yards) out. I used Viewloader and Super Swirl paintballs. I recorded
each brands performance and wrote it down :
Out of 100 balls only 1 broke. Accuracy when I would shoot one shot at a time
would vary dramatically, alot of curves and dives. But when I would shoot
5 -10 shots very rapidly the accuracy was almost perfect. Distance when I
would shoot 1 at a time would also vary. Like I said, alot of curves and dives.
But again, when I would shoot rapidly the barrel impressed me, hitting almost
the same exact spot each time from 75 feet out. I would not reccomend using
Viewloader paintballs with this barrel.
SUPER SWIRL :
Out of 100 balls 0 broke. Accuracy when I would fire 1 shot at a time was
almost perfect. Accuracy when I would fire rapidly was even better! Distance
was equally as impressive. The rim hanging from the wall was at about 5 feet
high and 75 feet away - the paintball never seemed to lose velocity as it
traveled towards it. I experienced no curves or dives with this paint as I did
with the Viewloader. I reccomend this paint or any paint that's not Brass Eagle
or Viewloader. I myself use Diablo (Midnight, Blaze, Sheridan) PMI Gold, or
This seems to and very well may be the absolute best barrel in it's price
range. It havent "battle tested" it yet, but when
I do I will give a follow up review on it.
9 out of 10

I myself own an Evil-Driver and some friends of mine own a flatline, and while competing in some tournys i had the chance to see the Teardrop in action and i still remain impressed with all of them. The Driver is kicka$$...highly accurate but if you have old or cheap paint its not afraid to chop. The flatline kicks to cause its so F#ckin accurate but it slows down the balls tad. The Teardrop shoots clean fast and accurately...its not REAL quiet but its better than most barrels...it chopped when i observed it but the gun contributes to chops as well.
