Unquestionably the most technically advanced precision-machined barrel system ever designed. Every back half in the set is measured three times for accuracy and engineered to greatly increase the performance of your marker and game. This powerful combination promotes reduced friction and increase the accuracy level of your gun tremendously.
The J&J Performance Full Tilt Ceramic is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Basically all the popular hyped up barrels, and they
are a piece of crap compared to this.
A-5 with J&J full tilt, soon to be upgraded to the max
Definately Evil. My friend and I have tested many diffent kinds, and we find evil stacks the best. Next up would have to be marbs. However, make sure you use orange evil because they are a bigger bore and fit this barrel better.
(EDIT 12/31/06) ) Just recently, have found that you can only shoot evil with an enhanced bolt and powertube, otherwise the a-5 is too powerful with this soft paint. (It does however work beautiful in my phantom) So I should assume that from now on to shoot marbs, and chronic seems to not pop with it. (1 out of 1000 will pop)
This barrel is incredibly accurate. After paintballing for many years and using all kinds of barrels, this is pretty much the best you can get, it will laser at 50 feet. You will be very happy with this barrel. I sleep with it every night and kiss it. This barrel is very intimidating to look at, especially at 18 inches. I noticed people were giving it looks on the field, with wide eyes and I knew what was going on in there head. It has really improved my game, and it will be even more accurate when I upgrade my A-5's internals. This barrel lives up the hype you may have heard about it.
A barrel is the first upgrade you sould get for your gun. And this is that barrel. It's the best I have ever shot. There is probably something better out there, the Special Ops C-Series barrels maybe but no one has reviewed those yet. Otherwise this beauty deserves a 12 but unfortunately I can only do a 10.

stock 98 barrel
16in of some kind. (ill find out from the guy who let me sue it and post it later)

DYE rhino cover
DYE sticky 3 grips.
ricochet AK hopper
Draxxus - dusk (worked pretty good)
warped sportz LA bonus balls (when they don't go flat...)
neslon precision (worked great)
nelson nel-splat. (see bonus balls)

Doesnt self clean quickly
Time to refresh the review.
I was tipped off to this barrel by its high rating (9.8 is nothing to sneeze at, well it was 9.8 when I bought mine...) and ordered it off the 'net for $55. It came about a week after I ordered it. I was originally planning on getting a flatline barrel but after the mixed reviews it received I was skeptical. So anyways first time playing with this barrel I went to the target range and started shooting, I was horrified at the disgusting accuracy of this thing. So I thought to myself "Man, why did I waste my money on this peice of crap?" When I lowered the gun from my shooting stance after my appalling target practice I noticed little gobbets of pink fill dripping from the porting of the barrel. Oh, damn, I chopped a ball. That's odd tippmann don't chop balls... Anyways after spending a half hour cleaning out all the damn paint from my bolt and chamber (damn tippmann no-field strip *grrr shakes fist*) I went back to the target range, same thing happens. Anyways to make a long story short I had some bad internals which needed to be replaced.
Fast forward one week from saturday, Now that I have removed my ball-blender kit (bad hammer+sear) I can actually get down to some serious paintballing. I skipped the target range this time and headed straing ou to the field to kick some a--. I was completely blown away. I went from zero "kills" to twice my "deaths" from the increased accuracy and effective range. (effective range: the distance at which a weapon can accurately and effectively engage targets. The curveball will go 100' easy.... to the left :)
I can now play at the ranges I am more comfortable working with (60'-120' rec, backman speed.) and do well.
The lowdown on this barrel. This barrel is basically an Edge front and back
(I think .689) coated with teflon impregnated ceramic. Very smooth, If I could make it flat it would look like the black floors in the death star (for all you non-starwars geeks death star floors = really really really shiny) not bad, now if only I could get back in .682, .686, .692 and .695 I would be set, Alas there is no hope of getting the full kit.
Now, the part you've all been wating for *drumroll* the self-cleaning feature. It seems to work as it's advertised just not as well. When I had a barrel-break due to oversized paint it took me a half a hopper to shoot straight again. So it does work as advertised, no if you want to work faster try and do some dry-firing with your hand over the muzzle to blow the paint out.
My final reccomendationg you say. If you have a lower end marker then this is about as good as you are goin to get for a barrel without a kit. However If you do have the cash (unlike me) then go for a barrel kit such as freak, edge, evil pipe, kaner, empire etc etc. Like I said before If you use something like a tippmann or spyder then this is the god of barrels. I give it a perfect 10, compared to a kit it would be lower but we are not comparing this to a kit now are we? .' )

Very nice barrel for a great price. People swear I forked out $75-$100 for it, but it was only $50. Another nice feature is it being a 2 piece. If you want real intimidation, especially at full auto, you can take the front half of the barrel off and it is LOUD. Quite scary at 15bps. Not quite as accurate though, but very fun unintended feature. Accuracy wise, I was getting about 7 inch grouping at about 40 yards. I only chopped once at 15 bps and about 200 rounds, but it was roughly 20 degrees out and the barrel cleaned itself just fine.
You don't need to recommend it to anyone, they'll go get one on their own when they see it. Good quality barrel at a very economical price.
Triumph TL 35 Loader
14"JJ Ceramic Full Tilt
Just Started on my new ICD Lasoya Promaster
Easy to Clean
hard to find the product
Some people don't like that quiet
shows wear quickly
I love this barrel. Great for anything you need, and what could be better for a barrel then accuracy. Shot a TON of different paints with it as was happy with most. Breaks were easy to clean and accuracy didn't drop off after them.
My only real complaint is the fact of how easy it is to mark up the outside of this barrel. Mine now being 5 months old looks like its been through a way (ok, it has) Not a single drop off in preformance though which why I am not taking off points for it.
GREAT barrel, and worth the upgrade over the regular Ceramic, go buy 2!!!
Well I ordered this barrel from a webstore and a week later still didn't have it. So I called the customer service number and was told it was out of stock. Needless to say I was pissed because I had a scenario in three days and was looking forward to trying it out. So I called J&J performance directly and had it in two days...thanks to UPS 2nd day air!
Well I own a Dye UL and a Lapco Bigshot (two of my favorites) and this Full Tilt is my new favorite. It shoots straight every time and after about 12000 paintballs shot through the full tilt I have yet to break a ball...but I do hear that it shoots through breaks very well. I'm a milsim guy and this barrel looks mean....the finish matches the A5 perfectly!
For the price you cannot beat this barrel....if you're looking to get a new one...this is the right choice!
Looking for a new barrel??....here's a great choice....price, accuracy, and looks....that's what matters in a barrel...and this one gets 10 out of 10!
Tippmann Custom 98 Pro
14" J&J Full Tilt Ceramic
Ricochet G5 Gravity Hopper
LAPCO Stainless Steel Screw Set
D.O.P. Rocket Cock II
I normally shoot Impact. These seem to work well. Any regular bore paintball should shoot well.
Screws in stiff
Isn't a kit (though I think edge backs work)
I've used this barrel on my Custom Pro for a few games now and it's really done me well. I don't really rip obviously, because I'm shooting a mech blowback, but it puts paint on paint. I sometimes use a red dot and it really does allow me to sight at short to medium range. It was expensive for a single barrel, but you do get what you pay for. Teflon impregnated ceramics mean you can shoot any breaks clean (though I didn't have any), and also a consistent and smooth bore.
All in all, this barrel is definitely worth getting if you're looking for a solid well performing barrel, and don't have a buttload to spend.
Nothing really wrong with it. 9 for almost perfect!
stock tippmann 98 barrel-the accuracy does not even come close
tippmannflatline barrel-further distance, still not close to accuracy of this barrel
quiot riot barrel-the accuracy of this barrel was about as good as the flatline, but the distance was not that great, the ball dropped very fast
spyder pilot acs w/ J&J full tilt ceramic barrel, halo tsa lcd backman smoke
the new camo jt paintballs
any "good" brand of paint
None that i can see yet
This barrel is actually the best barrel i have ever owned, however slicing off at longer distances. I bought this from a friend who said it was more accurate than the all american barre by smart parts, he was mistaken, although it is pretty darn close, i dont think anthing matches the accuracy of the all american
This is a very good buy for a paintball barrel, it is of good quality, and for the price, very accurate, i would recommend this barrel to anyone who plays paintball and does not want to spend $80+ on a barrel.
Any paint will do however, if you want the best accuracy I found that PMI Evil and Marbs are the best match for the bore size.
- I can't really think of any.
I have a J&J for both my 98 and TM7 and I've never really had to go look for a better barrel after that. This barrel is perfect for the average rec ball player and could do well enough for the humble pro as well. It's quiet enough that I had to turn the microphone sensitivity up on my Halo Too to get it to feed properly for my TM7. And with the right paint you can hit just about anything with only a few shots. But don't expect wonders if you don't have the right paint. As long as you take the time to figure out how to work the barrel in your favor you'll never have a problem with it.
jj ceramic 1 piece - good for price, but no where as good as this barrel
cp 1 piece classic - good for price, but not as good as jj ceramic 1 piece or full tilt
all american - just as good as this barrel accuracy wise, but louder, heavier, and pricey
2005 spyder imagine adjustable straight trigger, 14" jj ceramic full tilt, ACS Bolt, clamping feed neck, new internals, new grips, new velocity adjuster.
any x ball type
Very light, very accurate, very quiet, nice looks.
None so far.
After using my friends smart parts all american barrel and seeing how well the all american performed, i figured the jj ceramic full tilt wouldn't be as accurate or as good. As soon as i got the barrel in the mail, i noticed right away that the looks of the barrel was better than the all american. When i took it out i also noticed that it was so much lighter than the all american. When i put it on my gun, i took it out back and shot 500 rounds of x ball bronze at a distance of 60 feet at a 16" by 12" target and hit it every time except 4 times walking at max rate of fire (14 BPS).
Overall, i recommend this barrel without hesitation
Spyder Flash LCD, macrol line setup, dead on paintball drop forword, 14" J&J ceramic, 68/3000 pmi nitro, 9v revy
Only the Best BIG ball by PMI, i have never had a problem with that paint. it shots whenever, where ever
Quiet,Straight, Smooth, Flat
nothing weak about it. my bro has a boomstick and i like the ceramic better
Over all this barrel is the best you could buy, i got mine for $40 so im sayin the best you could buy for under fourty. I play alot of indoor and even inside its very quiet. I only have had it for about a month and i havnt broke any balls. All i use is BIG Ball
I suggest if your just playin to have fun, and want to have cool lookin setup for a good price then this is the way to go.
