Products Used:
OTP, Boomstik
Marker Setup: 2k2 Green AC w/ E-Blade and titanium internals
I like marbs and all-stars
Strengths: The ability to match paint sizes. At least on my AC it's very quiet.
Weaknesses: Not as accurate as portrayed, inserts are easy to mis-shape or bend.
Review: When I first bought this product I was fed all the hoopla about never breaking paint, about the incredible accuracy, several barrels in one. The fact is that it is not as accurate as all the hype. Now its not as bad as some, but it isn't the end all be all of barrels systems. With marbs and all-stars, which are the paints I like to use the most, I found the boomstick to be a far better barrel as far as accuracy goes. However, the freak shot blaze paint extemely well. Looking foward to trying the eViL Pipe. As far as the inserts go I thought, "what a great idea". Until they started becoming mis-shaped. This, in my opinion, is a weakness in the design. It's cleaner than a whole bunch of different backs you have to carry around, but the liability is once it's out of round it's not going to function as well. (Obviously). One of my favorite things about the barrel is how quiet it is on my AC. Getting the sneak on someone and shooting them in the side or the back is a treat. Especially, when they dont hear the ball coming at them and all you can see are these huge eyeballs in their goggles with that 'oh crap' look. That's priceless.
Conclusion: If your looking for a all in one system this one is pretty good if you take care of your stuff. I prefer something with better accuracy and a bit more durable as far as inserts go. As far as rating barrels never seen a 10. That would be something that never breaks paint and is spot on accurate every time. Doesn't exist.
7 out of 10
