Accuracy, range, i have never broken a ball with this barrel
I chopped a ball and when u squegee, hard to get paint out of porting
I went to my local paintball store to buy this barrel for my spyder. As soon as I pulled the barrel out of its original bag, you can tell that this is a high quality product (afterall, it is from smart parts). The next day I went to go play some rec ball at some local field. This thing shot like a dream and gave me alot more range. I have never had a ball break with this barrel. I have shot about 2,000 rounds through it. It hasn't disappointed me yet. This barrel also looks awesome too, (the new one looks nothing like the pic at the top of this page). Overall this barrel is extremely acurate when it comes to my standards.
GREAT buy for 40 bux. You wont be disappointed with it, VERY ACCURATE AND CONSISTENT
Dispute: I'm not trying to flame, but you said you've never chopped a ball, then below that, you said that when you broken a ball, it was hard to squeegie. Excuse me if I'm wrong, but what really did happen?
You're all missing the obvious. He said he has never broken a ball with this barrel. He said he CHOPPED a ball, which has absolutely nothing to do with the barrel. That is the bolts problem. I assume that you all just kinda skimmed and didn't concentrate, so i won't rag on you.

I'm glad you said something cuz I was thinking the same thing. Maybe they don't know the difference between a barrel break and a chop.
Dispute: It states that it has greater range, but all paintball guns have the same distance unless you have a flatline which adds a backspin on the paintball but the progressive does not put backspin, therfore, it should have no addition in the sense of range.
First, a chop and a brake are indeed different. However, this review is about the barrel not the gun, feed neck or bolt. Therefore, the weakness stated in the review should NOT be a weakness. Only if in fact it was a chop and not a brake. Second, a better barrel WILL in crease range. But, this is not directly due to back spin or the length of the barrel. The most effect way to achieve more distance is with back spin. However, a longer and better quality barrel with also add distance. But, a longer barrel will end up cutting down your speed drastically. I recommended a 14 inch barrel, 16 at the longest.
