Depends on the back, Zap works well for my .687 bore size (extremely well)
I've used several barrels, and thought I should quit borrowing my friends Progressive. I was about to get a Ceramic, but this was $3 less and was a kit, so I got this instead. Got it home, was surprised at how light it was in for a 4 Pc. kit. It also looked very good on my Sonix. Hooked up my CO2 and tested the 12 In. first, it was pretty accurate, not as good as the 14 that I tried right after, but still pretty good (good for front players). I hit a tree from around 150 Ft. away twice within three inches of each other. In the first game I used it in, I was amazed by the superior accuracy of this compared to my friend's Linear.
I recently got some Zap Spank, which are a bit higher quality than what I was using. This barrel is still good if not better than I thought. This barrel continues to surprise me.
For under $50 this is the best barrel I know of. If you can find it, try it out.

This kit came with 3 backs, .687, .689, .691, and 3 fronts , 10in, 12in, 14in so you can pretty muck pick and choose what paint you want to use.
match paint and it is beyond accurate
PRICE PRICE PRICE
NO O-RING on the backs. gets loose
Ok i had 8000 rounds of paint and wanted to match the paint, i bought this 6 pc kit on ebay for $60. Its Chrome so it matches, (its hard to find a chrome kit) and it shoots very straight, i ussually use a 12 in tip, 14 seems so long. The only problem i had was after like 200 rounds it would be loose on the back end side, i had a 300 pc o-ring kit and put a small one on each of the backs and solved that problem, for the money its not a bad system at all. Deff. get o-rings. Now you can match your paint and not spend $150.
If your short on cash this is a way to go, I would rather have a more known system but $$ is tight these days, and a $150 freak or eveil pipe is great but for 50-60 this is it... i give it an 8, need to get your own o-rings.

Quiet, very accurate, looks and performs like a boomstick, has multiple backings
I have a 2 piece and the backing comes unscrewed after a while
Great barrel i recomend buying all the backings for it.
If you want a cheap alternative to a boomstick then get this.
the performance is the same. but a boomstick is quieter.
if your looking at a 3a barrel don't get it. get this barrel you'll be glad u did.
the prices are similar
8 out of 10......casue nothin is perfect
Nelson Nelsplats are the right size, just try some smaller sizes and match to the bore.
I wanted a better barrel, and cheap. I got on Ebay and saw a four piece kit for $32. I got three fronts, and one back for $32. That cannot be beaten. I got it and put my CO2 on, got some paintballs, and tried it out. It was extremely accurate, I can hit a telephone pole from around 50 Ft. It is also more quiet than any other barrels I have used.
This barrel is awesome. I could not be more happy. For $30 it is worth a try.

Really, just about anything!
Not alot of backs
This thing is a great barrel. When using the right sized paint, it's just as accurate as my Freak Kit (I don't have an Autococker Freak back, or else I wouldn't be using this). It didn't come with an O-ring on the back, but hey, what's two cents anymore? It's really no problem, just with out it, even with the very little recoil of a 'Cocker, it'll come loose after a while.
The only thing I really don't like about this barrel is that AIM Paintball is currently making only 3 different sized back for this barrel. They'll probably make more soon, these are still relatively new. The backs are adequite enough to fit the basic small, medium, large paintballs (thus the three backs!).
You simply can't beat the price! I bought this for $35 on Ebay. Compare that to a $150 Freak! And it's incredibly good quality. Very durable. Very strong.
I am very impressed with Aim.
All-in-all, this thing is sweet. It looses a point due to the lack of precise backs, but it's superior in every other way. Great product.
And to all you people out there, 10/10 is NOT a perfect rating! It is simply the closest-to-perfect-anything-can-get rating. Don't dock points for that! I think the webmasters are smart enough to know that nothing's perfect. If there was such a thing, don't you think there'd be and 11/10 rating? Eh? Ok, my little rant is over.

Well, all around their a nice version of cheap boomy and not as good as a boomy but for the price( I found mine on ebay for 45$) can't go wrong. I may not be that experience with the Barrels area, but I know what shoots good and what doesn't. These shoot well enough for me. I love em. Plus they look sweet in black :)
I'd say get them if you pockets are a little empty or don't want to spend that much money.

Pieces come loose
This is a good barrel. Looks good on the Imagine and matches the stock volmizer on the Imagine. The accuracy was impressive, especially with good paint. I was shooting as straight and as far or farther than my friend with his custom autococker. The only complaints I had was that none of the backs came with o-rings(minor thing), and the barrels will come loose when I shoot real fast for very long unless I tighten them real hard. So I just transfer the o-ring off of my stock barrel and put some muscle in it when I tighten them on my gun. The main thing is that they are as accurate as any barrel you can get. I was nailing apponents 150 feet away that were on a dead run with 3 or 4 shots. Made my gun a little quieter, but not
Great barrel for the price. If you really want accuracy you need to match paint with barrel. You can spend 60 on this or 150 or more on something else. Im rating this a 9 because there were no back o-rings, and they tend to come loose during high rate of fire.

I originally bough this Kit for my Spyder Pilot and the first paint I used in it was some GAP now I have always been a fan of GAP paint and it shot very well but the next time I played I picked up some of the new Empire Bullets and the really did shoot like bullets. Accuracy has nuever been much of a storn point with my Pilot but these things were dead on. As for the barrel not comming with O rings all you have to do is take the O ring off your stock barrel. No big deal. Just because this is not a name brand kit does not mean it shouldn't be considered if your looking for a barrel kit. Especially if moneys tight.
Cheap well made product that greatly impressed me. Allows you to match the paint to your barrel and get the best possible fit which is the most important thing in finding accuracy.

Different lengths to choose from
Only came with one base. I wish it would of come with different size bores.
I have just got the AIM barrel system and really like it so far. I have only used the barrel three times now but it is far better then the stock barrel. I like the AIM because of the different lengths you can choose from. I was surprised of how accurate the shortest barrel (10") is. I would of been nice to have different bases to choose from, because it only comes with the .689 but you can buy different ones if needed.
During my testing I have found that this barrel is quite accurate even using the 10” barrel which is great for the front man. I would buy this barrel kit again especially for the price. I gave it a 9 because it is a great kit but it didn't come with different size based so I can't give it a 10.

This is a great product for his price ($50). Yo can match you paint and you can install different length depending of your position in the game. The quality is very good also. The only problem it comes without a any kind of case, so you have to find one to store the barrels.
