Products Used:
Stock barrels, CMI, Excel, SP Stainless
Marker Setup: 32 Degrees Icon Z, VL200, 9oz CO2 tank, SP Stainless
anything works, cheap paint worse though
Strengths: Not much, its light and looks cool.
Weaknesses: Accuracy
Review: Got this barrel for free with my Icon Z: It performs better than

Accuracy: 5 Better than stock, but nothing worth bragging about.

Range: 8 Goes as far as any other barrel, possibly excluding the flatline, which i haven't tried yet.
Loudnesss: 4 This thing is loud! The name implies that its quiet and everything, but it really is not.
Looks: 9 I like the style, looks really cool and sleek but thats just my opinion :)

Overall: 4
Conclusion: Don't get this barrel. If its free, than use it, its better than the stock barrel.
But its not worth much more than $10
Stick with the stock and save up for something better like a CP.

Your Co2 also makes it shoot louder. Nitro/Compressed air shoots quieter.

Your Co2 affects cold and has nothing to do with the barrel.

...And your range also has nothing to do with the type of barrel. =/

dude, you have no clue about paintball, do you? It's not the barrel. It's you

So it doesn't get them out there as far as you would like, but it shoots them VERY far? Make up your mind.

k look guys i was a noob... Hadn't tried any other barrels. It was better than my stock barrel. So i thought it was good.

It didn't shoot as far as i'd hoped for, but only cause my velocity was at 185. I fixed it with a spring kit. Then it shot far, but not accurately. So i got a SP Stainless and it solved all of my problems.
(I updated the review)

Silent Force! He said...

"Range: 8 Goes as far as any other barrel, possibly excluding the flatline, which i haven't tried yet."

That is 'possibly EXCLUDING the flatling which is not tried, do you see...?

I wouldn't listen to this guy if I were you. Judging a barrel's performance buy shooting a hopper and a half through it, using C02, with no anti-siphon, using 3 different types of paint. As well as saying problems all C02 users have are the barrel's fault, and probably ignoring the many people who have said this barrel has a big bore, and shooting paint that's too small through it.
