Quickly replacing traditional barrel plugs, the soft barrel sock is fashionable and fits into your pocket comfortably. The unique elastic tip design catches misfired balls without breaking them. Red, yellow, blue, gray.
The Dye Barrel Sock is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Does its job.
Costs more than generic ones.
Bought one because it matched my setup & gear (black & yellow). No other reason, really. The barrel cover that came with my Ion, the one a former local store (Tracer) gave me for free and the two generic ones i had previously all work just as well.
Now for the weakness. My Ion has gone off a couple times in it, when i thought it was off... dang hard-to-see light. The Dye barrel sock has this "pocket" on the end that is reinforced & has elastic so it catches an accidental shot better. But on one of the accidental "discharges," the paintball didn't go directly into the pocket. Instead, it ripped through an area just above the pocket and some paint and a piece of shell came out.
I'm using the Ion's barrel condom now.
It looks cool but a plain barrel condom will do the trick. What happened to mine may have been some freak occurence, i dunno.

Stops paint. Looks good. Lasts a long time.
More costly than other bbd's.
This is probobly one of the better socks out there. Rivaling the ones from Empire, these will take multiple hits, and still keep that barrel covered. The elastic stretches to the point where it will wrap your marker, and leave a little bit of give in case it has to do its duty, and needs that extra shock absorbant flex. It's a great sock, but it's a little more than i cared to spend on one. But it was a good investment. Makes my gun look cool. :sunglasses:

Easy to put on when broken in
Can catch a ball without breakage
I got this barrel sock for 10 bucks from my local paintball shop. I only got it because the place I was going to required them. But while we were there my friend wanted to test his to see if it could catch a ball without breaking it and it worked. It was a pain to get out but it didn't break. It looks really cool and it gets really easy to put on after a while.
I say get this if you want a stylish and fairly cheap barrel sock or if you don't wanna clean if you accidently fire a shot while your bag is on. Definit 10.
10 out of 10

A little awkward to fit around some barrels and not the easiest to clean
I recently purchased this barrel cover and have had very good results. last game that I was at I handed my marker to another player, who pulled the trigger after i told him not to since there is no safety on my frame. the barrel bag caught the paintball and didnt break paint keeping my barrel clean.
If you are going to buy something might as well pay the extra few dollars buy something that you can trust and count on
CCI Phantom vertical stock class
does what it should do
None that have been discovered
Although it seems odd to write a review on something like this, I saw for the first time today that it really does work. I bought this sock when I bought my new marker, just because I wanted to spend money, it's a dangerous disease. But anyway, when I first read on the attached tag that the DYE sock was specifically designed to prevent breakage in case of accidental discharge. My first thought: "pff, ok, ever what you say". But today, while walking on to the field I accidentally pulled the trigger with the sock still on. After cursing fluently, I pulled out my squeegee to clean my barrel, but to my suprise, the ball didn't break, it was just sitting there. Ingenious design. I'm a believer lol.

-Easy to put on
-Strap can easily break off
This is a very good barrel sock. It is very durable, made from the same stuff dyes tank covers are made out of. Since it is so big it can easily be slipped on your barrel. This is also one of the best looking barrel socks in my opinion. Dye lied about it not breaking balls, I did not break any in it myself but i have witnessed it twice, and once you break one you can see it is going to be a pain to clean it out. The strap is not sewed on very good, it could easyily break, I havn't witnessed it but iv heard it. It costs 10 bux, but you get what you pay for.
This is a very good if not one of the best barrel socks, other than dye lieing about that it catches balls it is a very good product. If you have an extra 10 bux go get yourself one.
I have a spyder xtra with a ESP C.A.M.D e-frame,14 inch smart parts teardrop barrel a shochtech superfly bolt and a halo tsa front man hopper

The ball does break and they say is shouldnt
This thing looks so cool and its dye so thats why i bought it. it does what is sapose to it stops paintballs from coming out and if lots of balls are fired it wont fly off so thats good but it kind of bugs me that the ball breaks and dye says it shouldnt but it comes with a cool sticker so ill forget about the balls breaking.

Its barrel cover???
Comes with a free Sticker
None, it covers your barrel???
Well their is not much to say but, its just a barrel cover and the purpose is just to cover your barrel when your at a park and so you dont shot anyone by accident. which if i didnt had i would of shot like 3 people. So yeah nothing fansy and it can be hard to clean when u shot inside the cover and if you dont clen it then paint is going to go inside your barrel.
Its cool buy it, its DYE, comes with free sticker, 3 colors, well ill give it a 10 because it does what its suppost too and their nothing pretty fancy all it does is cover your barrel and thats pretty much it.

I basically bought his because i needed a barrel cover and it matches the rest of my gear. The new 05 design is nice and you can feel the quality. I do wish that the barrrel cover were a little longer. other than that its a pretty solid product and works well. I dont yet know if the cover prevents balls from breaing, will post up when it happens
Nice design and nice colors. you need one, get this one
