A sister barrel to the Quiet Riot, this barrel puts the ball where you want it, and with its unigue small to large barrel porting it makes less noise and creates less wobble as the ball leaves the barrel. This also increases its accuracy and consistency shot for shot. Available in 12 and 14 inch lengths in black, blue, red, silver, and green anodized chrome finishes.
The 32 Degrees Whisper Barrel is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Tippmann: 98 custom with full boar rear cocking system and velocity adjust, expansion chamber, and 14" whisper barrel
Zap Rec balls, Zap Spank, anything over .687
Cheap, looks cool, acurate
long, gets in way of play
When i first got this barrel i compared it with my stock barrel. I aimed at one spot and shot them rapid fire. with the whisper barrel they all were within inches of eachother . When i put my stock barrel on they all were at least a foot and a half away from eachother and hit a lot lowere cause they couldnt go as far or as consistant.
I recomend that the first thing u need for your gun is a new barrel. I found this barrel and it worked great and it wasnt too expensive. buy this great product or maybe another 32* barrel
The gun this barrel was used on was a stock 98 custom
Diablo Dusks worked well, thats what we tested it with.
not as accurate as same-priced barrels, but still accurate
We compared this barrel to the two listed above, accuracy was about the same. Slightly less than the other 2, but so little that we had to remeasure it to be sure. It is quiet! I question the other reviews on this gun as the whispershot was so quiet that a few times i didnt hear it. Don't expect total silence. It looks really good as well. Of the three we tested, we ranked this second, the tear drop came in first, and the progressive came in third.
Buy it if you want a reasonabley quiet gun, it is not silent but it is hard to hear. The tear drop is more accurate at around the same price.

Big Ball works nice, but I do not recommend any of the smaller bore paints because the bore is big enough to stick your arm through.
This barrel is ungodly quiet. I bought it at Black Market paintball and took it outside to dry fire it while I was waiting for the woman to finish helping the other customers, and when I came back inside no one had even heard me shooting. Also, one day I was bored and got the bright idea to dry fire it in my living room with my mom asleep on the couch, and it didn't even wake her up. So when they say this barrel is quiet, they aren't lying. It also gets surprisingly good range when you consider all the porting. Honestly, I didn't notice a decrease in distance. The accuracy is good with bigger paint, and overall I was very pleased with this product.
The bore is massive. When I'm not playing i cover the top porting with a canvas and use it for an extra 2 car garage. Paintballs are supposed to be .68 caliber, but I think it would be easier to measure this barrel in meters. So far, Big Ball was the only paint big enough not to run down the barrel. I usually shoot midnight, but with this barrel, if I'm not shooting constantly, when I go to shoot I find there isn't a ball in the barrel, because it felt the need to be cool and fall out the end. Also, the balls liked to roll down about half-way right before the porting and come out at about 20 fps. But if you use big paint, you'll love this barrel.
If you like bigger bore paint, get this barrel. This product is a very well made barrel, it looks cool, and is so quiet its not even funny. But DO NOT use small paint with this barrel, because you will end up finding half of it on the ground after the match. I'm giving it an 9 due to the only problem being the massive bore size.
Boomstick: boomstick is less accurate and creates more noise than the whisper barrel.
Piranha with raised site, and bottom line setup
any with a .688-.699 bore size. Pmi, diablo, big ball and zap
This is an extremely quiet barrel. I think because of all the porting holes. It has great accuracy up to about 180 feet. And after that it is still decent. When i shoot a ball i can only hear my bolt. IT IS ONLY $60 DOLLARS FOR GODS SAKE!!!!! It doesnt break much paint if u use the right paintballs. Is very picky on paint.
Yes, it has many porting holes to clean when a ball breaks but u can easily clean it out. All u got to do is fully cover the ballel with a towel and then shoot an empty round and it will blow out all of the paint in the porting holes on to the towel. Yes it is only 60 dollars so it is kinda a piece. For example sometimes the symbol falls off or the paint will chip. It doesnt reach as far as all barrels due to its porting holes but the barrel can make the ball fly.
This is a great sniper barrle due to its quiet and accurate shot. U dont need awsome distance to be a sniper all u need is accracy. I am not saying this is the best barrel but for the money it holds its own against higher priced barrels.If u do buy this barrel i reccomend the 14"
stock spyder xtra barrel and tippman 98c and odyssey torid x
odyssey torid x with ricochet 2kx LED
scorch man, its good $hit. super swirl never again, it goes bad on you
VERY rarely busts paint
long but not too long
Lots of holes to clean
Not that quiet as many have said (see review)
I have used this barrel about half of my paintballing life and i say that this is a reliable barrel sure it aint that quiet, but tell me what barrel is quiet and possesses the capability to fully suppress the noise of a gun i like the length i have it in (14 inch) its a gentle median between instilling fear in its length and not being in the way when maneuvering around trees and $hit during the game.
This barrel is good and i recommend it 100% and the guy who said it was ugly is a damn fool

no paint balls work
ball curves a ton
hard to clean
breaks balls a ton
This barrell is awful, my stock barrel is better then this I was thinking about getting an Ice cold barrel for $20 less but the guy at the pro shop recommended it to me so I bought it. It broke balls like crazy(5 in like 100 shots) it is suppose to be quiet but it is louder then my stock and I tried to shoot like 5 in the same place but only 2 of them hit with in 3 feet from eachother the others were going crazy. I went and made sure to clean my barrel out good since I thought it might help, but it was not a help at all it was still just as bad. The CO2 effience is awful (I got about 600-700 with a nine oz with a stock and only like 300-400 with this one. I went to play at my friends house once and he was about 15 yards away and did not know I was there so I got set up for a one hit shot. well I shot and it missed by like 15 feet(major dive) and he found out were I was and pegged me one in the eyes before I could get to a big cover, and I was using marbalizer!!
I think you should never buy this barrel. I used to like 32 degrees and now I would not buy a product from them if they were the only aftermarket barrel sellers on the planet(which hopefully never happens)All this barrel does is waste your time and money. This barrel should be banned of the face of the earth(every one) If I could give this barrel a lower number I would but I cant so 1 will have to do!

While good range, there are others that shoot further.
I'm a 49 year old kid and I've been playing paintball for about a year now (started playing march of 2006). All of it woods ball (except for 3 games). I play an average of twice a month... Mostly capture the flag. My church has a group, and supplies Tipman A5's as their rental guns.
The A5 performs well... and I was fine using the stock A5... Until a friend let me use one with his Whisper barrel on it! (7/4/2006) At the time he did this he said he would probably regret it, because I would probably end up shooting him with it. (up until then I had never been successful when trying to get him) Well sure enough, I did! It was a long shot (I'm not good at judging the distance in feet, but I'd say it was about 85% of the maximum range of the barrel) and after 3-4 shots with a somewhat careless aim I got him... and even with my careless aim, the spread was less than 2 feet! With the stock barrel, for that same shot, the spread would have been about 4-5 foot.
That game I got 4 people out! The most I'd ever done before was just one. After that one use I decided I Need to get me one of these!
I have not regretted it! Now with a carefull aim (at the same distance as above), I can put the balls into a 1 foot spread!
This passed weekend (7/29/2006), was the first time I used my own whisper barrel, and I am totally in love with it! I had the best day I've had so far! Previously, my best over-all for a day had been 3 kills. I had 3 kills in my first game! I think I had 8 kills for the day, and my most memorable was my last.
It was our last game of the day. It had just been raining. When the horn blew I raced up the main path to the other fort... unfortunately, Jim got there the same time I did. He was coming up on one side of a giant root-ball of a fallen tree, and I was coming up on the other. I saw him and tried to stop... and ended up on my b__t. As I fell I fired a shot that whistled passed his ear. (we were really too close to fire but at that point it was all instinct... we were about 4 feet from each other). Immediately Jim pops up over the root-ball aims and hollers, "surrender!"... Here I am thinking "surrender? but he's in front of me... surrender is for when he's behind me..." For what seemed like forever we just stared at each other, knowing that if either fired it would be bad! Just then the ref came up and saved us both from a bad thing. He told us he would give us three seconds to run for cover. We both took off. At the end of my run I turned, sighted, and fired... right between the uprights of two crossing trees... bingo! A Center Mass Kill!
Immediately after that Wanye shot me... my shortest game ever. Less than 60 seconds, but it was my best game ever... I know I couldn't have pulled that off with the stock barrel.
I love this thing...
You will have no regrets, unless you're in a large clearing, and the other guy has a longer range... that's kinda rare.

I bought this barrel a few months after I bought my marker because the stock barrel left some to be desired. The fit and finish on my barrel is still in perfect condition after several years of woodsball, a few drops, and repeated cleaning. The price was also very reasonable. I am a firm believer in, "you get what you pay for," but this barrel is fairly cheap in price (compared to some of the higher end barrels, +-$50) and I have had very good luck with this barrel. In terms of accuracy and range I think it's definately better than stock. I've heard some people say that a gun shooting 285fps with a stock barrel will shoot just as far as a good aftermarket barrel shooting the same velocity. Not totally true.
Differences in porting design will affect how the ball leaves the barrel in terms of stability. Porting a barrel has two main functions. One, to reduce the pressure build up in front of the ball as its traveling down the barrel by venting dead air in front of the ball. This lets the ball travel as though it was flying through the air, not pushing it, but while still in the barrel being stabilized for flight. A good example to illustrate this is to watch a baseball game on TV. Bear with me. If you watch a slo-mo pitch of a knuckle ball where the ball doesn't spin and wobbles in its trajectory to the catcher, notice the speed reading, around 60 mph. Now watch the pitcher throw a fast ball. The ball has some spin and flies a fairly straight trajectory to the catcher. Notice the speed. 90-100 mph. Granted some of this is due to how hard the pitcher throws, but a ball that is allowed a straight, wobble free trajectory, will in fact maintain the speed it's given for a longer time. "Hey, dude, 285fps is 285fps, right?" Yes and No. All fps is measured at the muzzle. Try dialing in your gun for a certain fps, then set the chrono back 50ft or more. Try different paint and barrel combos. You will be surprised at the difference!
The second reason is to reduce muzzle report and jump. This is one of the same reasons competitive firearm shooters install ported muzzle brakes to their rifles or ported chokes to their shotguns. If some of the CO2 charge has an alternate route to escape around the perimeter of the barrel rather than all out the muzzle, it will soften the audible "pop" as less of the gas has to exit at one place. This barrel is definately more quiet than stock, but don't expect it to be totally silent, as that is too high of an expectation for almost all barrels. Most barrels these days come with some sort of porting and the list of porting designs and patterns just keeps growing. This barrel in particular has all straight porting from about halfway down the barrel to the muzzle. In my opinion, this design offers a slight advantage over barrels with full length spiral porting because it gives the ball 6"-7" of unported barrel to get up to speed and the last half to keep it stabilized, resulting in a more accurate, and therefor sometimes farther trajectory.
Some people say that this barrel is picky on paint. I agree, but most barrels are to an extent. There is no one barrel that will shoot every kind of paint well, unless you get a barrel kit with different bore sizes. All said and done, THE BEST thing you can do with the barrel you have, no matter what it is, is to get paint that has an average diameter that corresponds with the bore size of your barrel. Do this and you will have just as good of results with this barrel as you would with a much higher priced one. There are charts on the web that give ball diameters and bore sizes to help you match what you're shooting to what you're shooting it through. You can't expect cheap, un-uniform paint to perform well in this or any other barrel.
This barrel is quiet, though not silent. To really hush you gun up, you will need to do some work inside, possibly go LP, and maybe look at some other sound canceling ad-ons. All barrel companies claim that their barrels will make you shoot farther and more accurate, and yes some do a better job at that than others, but I have learned that you don't always have to pay out the rear for great performance. If you're thinking that you need that $150 barrel that your buddy has, take a look at the Whisper first. Hey, you'll have $100 left over for paint, regulator, electro hopper, etc. Can't beat that, right?

Anything with a medium to high size, such as Draxxus/Diablo paint
More accurate than any low end marker's barrel
Quieter in the same respect.
Not as quiet as the name implies.
32™ was upsidedown
Massive amount of porting
Got this for my TL-R about five or six months ago. Good durability and porting is even, but it came with the logo upside-down. Not a bad barrel, but it reduces efficiency tons due to the massive amount of porting. This is about a middle of the road barrel, not as bad as most stocks, but not as good as more expensive barrels.
Good barrel for intermediate players wanting a little more from his or her game but still has monetary limits. I give it a 7 because there are better barrels for this price out there.
