Got to test the new Straight Barrel on my X-7 at this years Okalhoma D-Day event. Total length is 16" and for some reason had a jump in velocity when is was on, which in most Paintball circle's would make me a liar. The extra length should cause more drag on the ball and slow it down but I clearly did not experience this.

My X-7 was Chronoed in at 285 with the stock barrel. With the Hammerhead is jumped to 345. I turned it down ALOT to get it to 273. So make sure you have your allen wrenches ready when you first put it on.

The appearance is great. Kind of makes my X-7 look more like a sniper rifle. One thing I noticed about this barrel was that taking single shots were not as accurate as it was when I rapid fired my X-7. Granted the single shots were actually still pretty accurate. But you can actually see the grouping on rapid fire tighten up, where with single fire a round here and there would stray off, but not so far as to call it off target

Took the barrel over to the ICP tent and put it on a B-5. End result was SWEET!!! 16" barrel on a CQB gun and it still compact. Now all I have to do is look for my stock A-5 Barrel lug and get that in there. I can use the barrel with other fins as well. Tested it with my autococker threaded fins and the Tac-One and Deadly wind ION looked sweet.

The Barrel is definitely quiet down range but has a intimidating "Tack" sound when fired for those behind or just off to the side of the shooter.

Rapid firing in the trenches just South of Coleville proved to be the undoing of several allied assaults up the hill. Sniping from a dug in position on the South West side of Coleville in an attempt slow down the allied advance proved a bit more difficult but was still effective in taking out several players, stopping their advance, and causing the Allied forces to use a tank to root a teammate and myself out of that position.

Overall I'd say the barrel kicks behind. Very well designed product and effective to boot. Once you get used to it, you should be effectively putting balls on target no matter what mode you're shooting. The look of the barrel is impressive. The fins are newly designed with a textured surface so they are easier to grip, though I still wouldn't suggest using them on a Tac-One/Deadlywind body. The threads on the inside are tighter than previous hammerhead designs. The flash suppressor on the tip comes off and has more porting on it than previous hammerhead designs, which help in making the marker even more silent than before.

I haven't see the product up on either the Tippmann of Hammerhead site yet so I have no pictures or URL's to post just yet. I'll make sure to update when possible.

I would definately give this thing a 5 out of 5 stars.
