Stiffi barrels are available in 12, 14, and 16 inch lengths, with bore sizes ranging from .687 to .695 in .002 increments. Featuring a stepped bore .002 at 5 inches, and a precision engineered MicroJeweled bore for exceptional accurary, and weighing only 52 grams (1.7 oz), Stiffi barrels ounce-for-ounce are stronger than steel. Featuring zero-thermal expansion, meaning they do not expand or contract with temperature changes the way metal does, Stiffi gives you consistent performance and straight shooting all the time.
The SITE Inc. Stiffi Barrel is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
very light, very strong, accurate, and equally as quiet as a boomstick
I haven't found any yet...
Light - this is the lightest barrel I have ever used. It doesn't even feel like it is there
Strong - When I bought the barrel, I got crap from my friends, because they though it would break easily. Well, it comes with a keychain made out of the same stuff, and after setting it on the edge of a counter and hitting it with a hammer numerous times, it didn't break. Anything else would've broke or bent with what we did. oh, and the key chain is only half as thick as the barrel.
Accurate - not quite as accurate as a freek, but darn close
Quite - for those of you that have shot a boomsitck, this is just as quiet. I have shot both, and they sound the same. At the local shop, a friend of mine that has a boomy shot a shot than I did, and there was virtually no difference in noise. This barrel is quiet.
The only weekness that I might be able to come up with is the cost. It is not the cheapest barrel ever, but it is well worth the money. If you look around enough, you can find it for about $100. In my opinion, it is one of the best single bore size barrels. The boomstick is good also, but it also costs a lot more.
I strongly reccomend this barrel. It is well worth the money and is better than the original boomsticks.
What ever fits the bore size, draxxus always shoots good and gap
Hella light, shoots money and great porting design
None, the st!ffi is a wicked barrel
I got to first see these barrels at the CCM shop. I fell in love with the weight of them. Later in the year i got to shoot one and it was better then i imagined plus the spuer light weight of the barrel made everything a lot better. The SITE guys are great people to deal with, super nice and they make very very good products.
if people want to be able to play at there best they should be comfortable and this barrel makes everything so comfortable by it being so light. It shoots better then barrel systems and its a pleasure to have them as a sponsor.
used many barrels in the past JT, Boomstick, Lapco, all have good points. Most barrels are accurate not too many are quiet. This one is about the quietist you'll find, it's right up there wih the boomstick. Accurate as all hell and it's as light as a feather.
Y2k Cocker, custom splash anodized, Max Flo, Shocktech, ANS, Kapp, Eclipse E-blade, all of the best
marbs, allstars, evil
very quiet and very accurate
Can't anodize carbon fiber
Accurate as all hell, quiet as al hell and light as all hell. It doesn't get much better than this barrel fellas. The only bad thing is that you can't custom anodize it to match your marker. It looks pretty cool anyway. Somebody has to do something about the amount of words you need to put in this area. Don't they read the reviews and see how many people complain about this? If I felt I had all night to sit up and write a review with 500 words I would but I don't have that kind of time.
They say the carbon fiber will outlast steel, if that is the case......there isn't a barrel around that will stand up to this one.
Dye Boomstick - Not even close
Freak - Close but no cigar
Cross Fire 68/4500
Stiffi Barrel, .687, .689 and .691
I am a Marbs and All-Star fan
Weight (or lack of), strength and accuracy - shoots darts
Price, but is worth every penny when compared to competition
I have used this barrel for a month now and it is great. During during tests, here is what I have found:
20 yards - One big splat
30 yards - One big splat
40 yards - Excellent grouping. Off marks were high or low. No spin offs
40+ - Good for the distance. No spin offs. All strays were high or low
Compared to the boom stick and Freak, this is far superior. The bore size is consistant and accurate, unlike Dye who tends to have a bore size smaller than specs. With the Boom stick, even All-Stars were getting stuck and breaking. I have yet to have ball break in this barrel.
That's easy - buy this barrel and sell your others one as you will never take them out of the case again.
CP 1 Piece - NO COMPARISON
Infinity - NO COMPARISON
Boom Stick - NO COMPARISON
J&J Ceramic - Almost as Good
Powerlyte Scepter - Great, but I still prefer the Stiffi

Light as Hell
Quiet as Hell
Super Smooth Internally
Nothing, This barrel is kick ass.
This barrel kicks ass.
It is super smooth on the inside which puts less friction on the ball when it comes out of the barrel.
It is super Quiet if you are into that sort of thing. I MEAN QUIET.
This thing is amazing. I have shot all types of paint through it ranging from Big Bore to Small Bore, and yet to have a barrel break.
It is so light that it is impossible to notice it on your gun unless you see it.
It is accurate as hell. With all of the different brands of paint that I shot through it, I was putting shot on shot. At 40 Yards with Diablo Hellfire, I was getting a 5 inch Grouping with no wingers. At 40 Yards with Inferno, I was getting a 6 Inch Grouping with no wingers. At 40 Yards with RPS Big Ball, I got an 8 inch grouping. At 40 Yards with RPS Marballizers I had a 2 inch Grouping, NO LIE. At 40 Yards with RPS Slam Balls, I had a 5 inch Grouping. And the rest of the RPS were within a 4-8 inch Grouping.
KICK ASS BARREL. If you have the money for one, and are thinking of a Boom Stick. Dont get it. Get A Stiffi. Like i said, It is Quiet, Accurate, Light as hell, and looks bad ass.
Weight.... It feels like a piece of bamboo. It weighs less than Ally McBeal
I have used it on a Ranger pump, Black magic, and Various Timmies. It shoots well and is very quiet. with various bores available you can match it to your favorite available paint. It shoots as well as any of the top Dye and Lapco products with almost no weight. With Cocker, Imp, Angel, and Spyder threads they now cover most markers.
If you are in need of a high performance single bore barrel this is as good as it gets.

Any good pain but nothing lower than a rating below 9.0
Nothing at all.
This is a really good barrel. However for people with spyders don't get this because I dosent look all that great on a spyder because I have seen it before and it looks really really weird. But if you don't care how you look and are could care less about how you look then go ahead and get this barrel. But if you ever need a dependable barrel that is assurate and loooks really cool (except on spyders) get this barrel.
This is the best barrel you will ever use in your life time of paintball so just get one.
Colors are onthing but on this barr3el collers are one of the big things like it comes in black red blue and I am pretty sure it comes in green.
Weight- If you wan't to lighten up your gun a few anuces get this barrel cause this is like maybee 2 onuces max. I even weighed my self on the scale and when I got back on the scale holding the barrel nothing changed but when I stepped on it againg with the
stock barrel I gainger about 5 ounces. It is insanly light. Another reason to just get it.
This barrel looks sick and tight what ever you wan't to call it that is what it is but if you don't like it then I don't know what barrel you should get for your gun. This is carbon fiber nice and shinney so this is another reason to just get it.
Just get it.
Look for good qualty for the price just get it and when I say IT I mean the barrel.
Please reat my review!

Spyder Sonix, 32* E-grip, Stiffi 14" .689 bore, BL torpedo reg, 32* springs, 32* Magnaport valve, modified Venturi bolt, Dead-On drop, Pure energy 47ci nitro
I used the cheapest paintballs
maybe too much porting (for low pressure)
This is a badass barrel. It made my Spyder shoot as accurate as it can get and is very quiet especially when I converted to low pressure. The only reason I say it may have too much porting is cuz its ported most of way down the barrel which might not be good for low pressures cuz of the velocity loss-so they say. However, i tested it by covering up that porting and didnt see any difference in velocity.. so wutever. I'm going to get an adaptor so I can keep using this barrel when I get my cocker since it is so light.
This barrel shoots as straight as most metal barrels in the price range except it is lighter and prolly quieter. This is a great alternative if you have a heavy gun and didnt want to add the weight of a stainless steel barrel but wanted the accuracy and stealth without the weight.
Diablos, i love them, work GREAT with St!ffi's barrel.
Accuracy, Straight, WOW
Man, these St!ffi's sure are great, when they use the would st!ffi i thought about buying one, i am the type you need to try before buying, and man, WOW, these are GREAT barrels, i mean like you have to try one, no heat curving, carbon never curves when heated, and feather light, i mean you really need to see one, oh one more thing, no one likes chrom barrels with playing in any type of paintball game, cause they give your position away, these arent chrom'd, and ported! Everyone got to love ported barrels.
Buy one, it is worth it, bought at 12", 14". 16". 0.681, .683, 0.685, 0.687, 0.689, 0.691, 0.693, 0.695 sizes
I have been playing paintball for about 3 months. While i have been playing I found my balls curving at longer ranges since paintball is new to me I asked one of my friends how I could fix this problem (He also owned a m98 with a big daddy barrel). He told me to buy a better barrel so i started doing research. I found alot of barrels in my price range but then i found an ad in one of my magazines about the stiffi. So iI went online and bought it on ebay. When it came in I was really excited. When i put it on my gun the Carbon Fiber made it look really tough. I started shooting it and was amazed at how straight the balls flew. Compared to my stock barrel which curved my balls this barrel was a god. The balls went completely straight until the ball went out of range and started to drop. The barrel not only looks and shoots GREAT but it is the lightest barrel i have ever felt. Its so light that you would forget u have a barrel and its so strong that you can smack it against a tree a billion times and never mess it up. The only real problem is its noise it more quite than some 14' metal barrels but is still a little loud if you are playing wood ball and are trying to keep your stealth at a high.
Over all I recommend you buy this barrel it is worth the price and to you m98 out there this is a very durable barrel for a durable gun not to mention it performs like an angel.
