i got this barrel for 10 bux on ebay brand new. I have gave it a few trys and have had serious bad results. I had great paint to barrel matches. But still this barrel lacks. The internals polishing of the barrel is terrible. I noticed this right off the bat. The Range and accuracy is terrible. This is Cronoing at 270 and my gun is very very consistant with HPA and a Palmers Regulator/Stabilizer, And still had bad results.
For the price you can get them on ebay there not bad. 10 Bux. But I would strongly recommend saving up for a quality barrel.
Marbs is the best, Zap works fine, Diablo Dusk works good to
-Accuracy is amazing
I bought this barrel for my ACI Maverick Deluxe because the stock barrel is ridiculously loud, and I'm so impressed with it. It reduced the sound on my gun by more than i could have ever imagined. It looks so sleek too, even though the rest on the gun is black, the chrome barrel adds a very nice look to it. This barrel is also amazingly cheap, I got mine for $25 online, best buy i've made yet! I love my Maverick, and love it even more with this barrel. I haven't had any problems with balls breaking yet. Oh yah, the accuracy on this barrel is excellent too. My stock barrel was pretty accurate on it's own, so i was very impressed to see that this barrel was even more accurate than what i was already used to.
A excellent buy, highly recommended! Hard to find barrels for Maverick, and this is a great one!

anything with the right bore
This is a good upgrade from a stock barrel. I payed $50.00 for it which is bad for a new barrel. Its pretty quiet, but not as accurate as I had hoped for. If you have the money, go ahead and buy something like a freak system, or an all american. I give this barrel an 8 because its def better than anything stock, but as for accuracy I've seen better, hey, you get what you pay for
Get this if money is tight and you need something quick
Truth is im lieing about the year becuase I have no idea what year it is and i cant post without one, so deal with it.
Spyder victor with taso eliminator 14 inch barrel, new valve, stock venturi bolt but my friend drilled out the venturi and its shooting very accurate now, he compares my accuracy to his 03 vertical cocker
I use walmart paint and it works fine.
Maybe 3 out of 10 balls curves but thats no problem at all.
Well my friend gave me this barrel for free, and im quite impressed with its accuracy considering I have never heard of taso and have never seen anyone else using one. I think it has much to do with the accuracy of my gun which is really good right now. I would recommend this barrel to anyone using a spyder or spyder clone. I dont have any idea about its performance on auto cockers, intimidators etc. But if you have one of those I think you can afford a much better barrel.
I got it for free and its accurate enough to satisfy me, so im happy.
Any small or medium ball
Mine shoots inferno well also venom & anarchy
low price ($15 on e-bay)
much better than stock
nickle plated exterior
This a much better than stock for the a5. Shoots a much tighter group from 50 foot on out to 150 foot. Shoots clean usualy in 3 to 4 shots (don't have that problem with the a5 often, no breach brakes in over 7 cases) This is a good inexpensive upgrade. I have a 12 and a 10 that I bought on ebay for less than $15 each new. The only barrel breaks I had were with proball in very cold weather ... about 1 per hopper. I attribute this to the balls getting too cold and brittle.
Some barrels get bad reviews when the problem is the gun and it's owner. Some guns (spyders, BE & cheap BB knock-offs) have such poor velocity consistancy that the gun blows balls and chops know matter what barrel they use. I can't the number of times players come up to me when refing with paint running out the end of the barrel when it wasn't even screwed in all the way.
Good barrel for $35 excellent barrel for the price when you can get it for $15!
Spyder Xtra, 14 in teardrop, 20 oz co2 (soon going to be anti siphon)
pretty good accuracy
the nickel plating flakes off
phallic (yes i do admit it)
Its an ok barrel, but you might as well get a smart parts teardrop. that is a very good barrel for only 39.99, which is cheaper than the 45 i paid for my eliminator. It is only decent soooo ill give it an 8
8 out of 10

RP Marbellizer all the way!
I have the 8" version of this barrel. It's so hella light. It will fire any paint (and I do mean ANY) without breaking. Great for speed ball and very easy to clean. Kind of cool looking as well. I use it on my mag.
You won't get much distance with this barrel. it's not incredibly accurate past about 25 yards (?), so you probably won't be using it for a "woods" game or if you are a back player in speed ball.
The barrel is perfect for small speed ball courses. It's very easy to clean on the field, though you'll probably never have to unless your bolt or loader is screwed, as this thing fires even the most garbage of paint with ease. It's definately NOT for long ball or big courses.
Fairly large bore paint. BigBall rolled right out of the barrel, but it was still suprisingly accurate despite the bore size mismatch. I'd suggest something at least as big as Advantage or Marbillizer.
Hey, the fact that it looks like a penis is entertaining to me! I think it's funny!
The term *bling*bling* was invented for this barrel
Not bad for the price. Fairly quiet, too.
*bling*bling* isn't an advantage if you're a woods baller.
If you have, uh, "confidence" issues, your barrel may be intimidating to you :-D
There's better barrels for under $50.
I got it for $15, so I can't complain. But if you're thinking of a barrel in the $50 range, you'd be better off with a Lapco BigShot or a CP barrel.
Thunder Pig 16" Sniper Barrel
The TASO eliminator is definitely quieter, have not used both barrels long enough to judge accuracy yet.

Have only used ZAP paint with this barrel so far
I bought this barrel from one of the trade booths at Wayne's World' Tank Girl" scenario game this past weekend. Play conditions ranged from hot and dry on Sat. afternoon, to hot and wet after the rains Sat evening to cool and damp on Sun. morning. In ALL conditions this barrel performed notably better than the stock barrel that came with the E-99, it is definitely quieter, and appeared to have better accuracy as well. But hopefully some of my accuracy improvement came from my increased familiarity with the E-99 since this was only my 2nd time using this gun.
The phallic resemblance can not be denied.
When showing this barrel to my team mates the first comment I heard was,
"it's even ribbed for her pleasure"
Overall I am very happy with this barrel, and would recommend to anyone else out there who doesn't feel the need to drop big $$$ on their gun or accesories. It won't turn your Spyder into an Angel but considering all the money you save you can get a pretty decent setup.
I am only giving it a Nine because i have not used it enogh, yet.
Will write another review after I put a few thousand more shots through it.
