Angel Speed '05 w/Pred board
Halo B w/Victory Board and Shocktech Rip Drive
Anything with a hard non-brittle shell.
Nice carry case
Small length sizers
Breaks paint easily
Shoots with a curve
At a first glance this kit was smooth. It comes in a nice, durable hard carry case with cut foam to protect the front and the five fin inserts. It also came with its own grease and ball sizer. Trying it out for the first time I was impressed over the chrono by the FPS consistency, +-2 fps, which was much better than any of the other barrels I owned at the time. It was also noticable quieter to those on the field in front of me and louder to me, Hammerheads claim that the porting diffuses sound back towards the shooter was proven.
I also noticed the effect of the rifling, the balls swerved to my left. Although the groupings with the curve were exceptionally good this was more than anoying on the mid to longer ranged shots that needed a stright trajectory, but it came in handy several times shooting around a bunker and hitting a player who was completely safe from any other painballs coming his way, much like the APEX sysem now does.
After testing the kit through various conditions and over some time I also noticed that the rifling does not clean through breaks well at all, but the accuracy and consistency is not as effected becasue the balls ride on the ridges of the rifling so cleaning through breaks is not always necessary. The rifling makes choosing good quality paint with a harder thicker shell a neccessity. The Evil I had used shot very well and the faster I shot the tighter the groupings got and the strighter they flew with less curve to the left, I found this interesting and amussing.
This is a good kit if you dont play on large fields or fileds with underbrush, on Airball this will give you shots you would kill to get in a tournament. It is paint finicky and I have owned better systems, but if you're looking for something quiet (to the other team), dont mind paying more to get better paint, and can pick one of these up for a good price it may surprise you.
DXS GOLD!!! Marbalizers, although they don't break enough.
If you don't match the bore you'll have a bad day.
When you put fresh DXS gold through this thing, consistant one shot kills are a possibility up to 30 yards. I've even gotten them up to 50 yards, but that was pure luck of no wind and having the perfect paintball loaded. Keep her clean, and feed her fresh dxs gold and you'll be delivering headshots at 20 yards all day long.
I couldn't say, I only shot Diblo Heat, (wich worked great).
Diferent bore sise options
Looks kinda like bamboo, (sweeet!).
Curves to the left (so little, I almost couldn't tell).
Loud, (to the shooter).
My bro' just got one of these, all I can say is WOW!! This thing was the flattest shooting barrel i've ever shot! We were just yesterday shooting things around the yard with it,. I called out like 10 targets at deferent distances and he hit all but one first shot! He handed it to me and then I shot them all too!! We decided to test the "Quiet downfield" property advertised by hammerhead, so I went and stood next to one of our tarets, (I had my mask on, of course!!) . He shot off a couple shots, all I could hear was a muffled "puh" and then the paintball whizzing by and smaking the target!! I wasn't quite ready to spend the $100, but now I'm convinced, this barrel is worth its wieght in paint!!
Verry good barrel, I would highly recomend it over all other barrels that I've used.
