The J&J Pro-1 Barrel is exceptional when compared to against the Flatline. I am a back player and this barrel offers me the distance I need while providing a platform for consistant on target coverage. The Flatline still has greater reach, but this barrel is far more accurate when targets are inside the 150' radius that I cover.
Tippmann 98 Custom with vertical expansion chamber, 32 Degrees star bolt, and a Daisy Red Dot Scope.
Diablo Blaze shoot best. I like the orange fill, but I have tried both the blue and the green and all three perform the same.
Winchester balls do very well. Grouping does open up a bit and the balls break about 1 for every 200.
The Pro-1 barrel I tested is the 14" version so keep that in mind.
1. Fit and finish of the barrel was very good.
2. Stylish design.
3. Accuracy. I went to the local pro-shop and tried everything from the Edge to the Freak. The Pro-1 shot just as well when using my favorite Diablo Blaze balls. I was able to consistently achieve groupings of 6" at 50' with this barrel. Fellow users were amazed and tried the setup themselves. As one person put it, "That barrel actually shoots well enough that your red dot scope can now be used with some high expectations." Which he was right since the next day I entered a contest at the local field and out shot 30 other players and guns winning a new Sheridan JTX and a case of balls.
4. Range. Doesn't really shoot further than other 14" barrels, but it does put the ball in the zone at over a 100'.
5. Quiet. At 75' the only thing you hear is small "pop". For me this is a must since I live and practice inside the city limits where it is frowned upon to be shooting a paintball gun. Never had a complaint with the J&J Pro-1.
6. Very little ball breakage. Have balls broke in the barrel...yes. Have quality balls broke in the barrel...no. Buy the right ball size for the barrel (good site for barrel / ball charts is www.ottersccustoms.com) and she performs flawlessly.
1. Shiny finish. I don't like shiny, I would prefer a flat finish for better concealment.
2. The engraving on my barrel is upside down when it is fully screwed in. Not a big thing since it works so well.
This is an exceptional barrel at a competitive price. With accuracy that gives you confidence and price tag that will not break your bank account it is a must to have. I gave it a rating of 10 because it works so well at such a great price.

best barrel. its better than the freak and boomstick. buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a great barrel for the price.
Its pretty quiet.
Great barrel for sniping the enemy.
Only cost me 55$
Accuracy is almost perfect when barrel is clean.
Mine was 14"
I used it on a piranha vtl.
I used pmi premium in this barrel.
Its well worth its price.
I recommend this barrel to all people who are willing to spend this much on the barrel. If you can afford a more pricey barrel there are better ones.

Original J&J, Smarts Parts, 32 degrees, Empire Twister, Flatline, etc.
Tippmann 98 Custom
Smaller Bore seems to work best but all work fine
Accuracy, Good Porting, Black, Length
High Gloss Finish
I have used almost every barrel out there for Spyders, Tippmanns, and Spyder Clones and the accuracy is right up there with the Boomstick as being the best, I have the 12in and It has some of the tightestest groupings at medium range but doesn't have the range of a boomstick or my Empire Twister, or Flatline, but has tighter grouping and quieter then those. The one thing I love the most about this barrel is the consitentcy no matter how fast I shoot the grouping will still be tight other barrel can get away from you when you really have to throw some paint but this one keeps up and is a perfect barrel for almost anyone. Highly recomend and I picked mine up new for under 20 bucks on ebay so go get it.
T3 marker with a J & J Pro 1 barrell 14 inch. also a empire reloader agitated. i use co2 but am upgrading to compressed air soon.
perfect color match
This barrel matched the color of my marker perfectly. this barrel also is very accurate. when i bought this barrel i just wantes a cheap one that worked. what i got was sweet barrel for not that much money for a quality barrel. i got it for like 35 $. the only thing i dislike is the decal is upside down on the gun when screwed all the way tight. not a big deal though
Buy this barrel for a great upgrade and too save money.

This barrel is awsome!!! it's very light, acurate, and quiet(you want all of these in a barrel). The looks of it is very cool and it will look good on any gun, plus you can get it in many colors and sizes, and J+J is a company you can trust.
Buy it it's an awsome barrel and u will love it. I got it cheap causeI bought it from a friend
but it is definitly worth the cost ($50).
You won't regret it!
smart parts ion with virtue board, 14 inch teardrop, qev, bullet drop with asa, egg 2
.68 it depends more on the gun then the barrel really
Very quiet light and accurate
Not much really
Ok, i got this barrel at a tournament about two years ago for my spyder, it made the gun 105% better. I think it improved my game more then getting a new gun. I dont know about other guns but i recomend it for any spyder or spyder clones, its really one of my favorite barrels out there, its not too expensive and definatly worth whatever you pay for it.

i picked this barrel up from a shop in my town,i got it for about 25 bucks,i bought it because my brother has had two jj ceramics,and they were phenominal.so the first time i played with it, my expectations were moderate.this brrel is MUCH quiter that the stock barrel,and So much more accurate. i would highly recomend this(if u can find one)it is worth the money.
All in all I am going to rate this a nine,because ten is perfect,and nothing is perfect.
18" All American
Trilogy Competition Autococker
Pure Energy 12 oz on/off
16" JJ Ceramic Barrell
Zap Premium paintballs work great (they are very accurate) but Zap balls get chopped if you like to shoot fast.
Big Balls are not as accurate but do not chop as much.
The quietest barrel I have ever heard.
The most accurate barrel I've used
I have not found any weaknesses with this barrel.
This is a great all around barrel. It is good for speedball and woodsball. I recommend you get a 16" because it is super accurate and quiet (I play woodsball so quietness is important). I have a Trilogy Competition Autococker and it is very accurate. It goes exactly where I aim every time.
I give this barrel a 10 out of 10. It's the best barrel I've used.
