Paintball
Experience:
4 years
Similar
Products Used:
Spyder TL Plus stock barrel ( It's Okay)
Marker Setup: Pirhana G2(it was a Bottem Line), PMI Inline Reg, 14 inch 32 Degrees Whisper Barrel, Daisy Electronic Point Sight, and the PMI Coiled Remote System.
Recommended
Paintballs:
Anything with a larger bore size. PMI super swirls seem to work fine. I prefer to use the cheap blue streaks that you can get at wal-mart for about 20 buck for 1000 rnds. These are so tough that they never bust no matter the bore size.
Strengths: Increases acuracy and distance quite lot from my 9 inch stock barrel. Cool looking. Cheap.
Weaknesses: Picky with paint if you have a high velocity. Lower velocity and it works great.
Review: The 32 degrees whisper barrel is an excelent upgrade for any gun.When I first bought it for my gun I was surprised by the increase range and accuracy. During my first game though I though that there was something wrong. When I tried to shoot at a quick pace it would chop paint. That problem was soon fixed though. As soon as I squegeed my gun and turned the velocity it shot perfectly. With the velocity turned much lower than I had had it with my stock barrel I was shooting farther. During that battle I also realized that I could actually snipe. I soon also go a cheap daisy electronic point sight (about 7 bucks at wal-mart) to help with that.
The whisper barrel also made my gun pretty quite too. It did not completely silence my gun, but it did make it quiter than any of my friends guns. For $40 I think that it is a really good upgrade that I do not regret buying. This is my first 32 degrees product but I do not think that it will be my last. I can tell just by this barrel that they must make pretty good products. They also make the whisper barrel in a variety of colors (black is the best) and for just about every semi-auto and automatic gun out there too, so you know that they will have a one to fit your gun.
Conclusion: I think that this is a great barrel. I find it disapointing that people rate it badly because they think that it busts paint. Just turn your friggin velocity down already.
Rating:
10 out of 10

Hey you said you like blue streak because there cheap but if your wal-mart has game-face scorch paintballs i would try those out they are the same price and alot more accurate and bust on your enemy bettter than the blue streaks. try it if you want but no pressure just trying to help.

I have a spyder tl-x, and i'm dissapointed at how loud it is... maybe i had my velocity on too high, what velocity did you set yours to?

my friend david has a whisper barrel, and it was really quiet, but the bolt was really loud so it wasn't worth it. he had a spyder imagine. but my other friend has a tippmann 98c, so he can buy a sealed bolt for it.

Dispute:
No barrel other than the Apex or Flatline can increase distance. It's simply not possible. this barrel maybe provides better accuracy at long range, but it will certainly not increase the guns range.

I disagree. It is a given that at a specific speed one paintball barrel will not shoot farther than another, a barrel can shoot farther than another barrel if you don't make adjustments to the velocity and one barrel has a better paint match or a more air efficient design.
