Recommended
Paintballs:
dusk, nightmare, midnight, competative edge, splash, just about anything (i have .690 calibre)
Strengths: Quiet, accurate, light, cleans out quickly
Weaknesses: Needed some milling on the back...
Review: Other than the fact that the barrel had a thick edge on the back which left a square edge for the paintballs to hit when entering the barrel, this is a really good upgrade barrel... But it took about 3 minutes with a steady hand and a pocket knife to fix that...

EDIT: well it's been a few years now and I have finally upgraded to an Empire Twister, but my sister still uses the JT on her DX... This was a very reliable barrel; fairly accurate, and extremely quiet... Over 4 years and a few cases (probably about 7) of paint there were maybe only a dozen barrel breaks: the rest were marker related.

Also, the barrel cleans out within 10 balls if your marker doesn't chop another one (cheap paint and cold weather = horrible mix!) because it has a uber smooth surface (almost as smooth as glass)
Conclusion: This is a great barrel for the beginners and maybe even intermediate. and so is a great upgrade from the stock barrel... of course the price is a bit high for what it is ($50, $8 more and you can get an empire twister), but it's not that hard to find a used one lying about and if found for the right price would be a great barrel
