Two Tippy 98 Customs ...One with Air America Apocalypse 68/4500 Nitro system , Custom Chrome AA drop forward, Psycho ballistics Double Trigger, Smart Parts 14" Progressive barrel, Ricochet 2k loader, Hogue one piece wraparound grips........Second 98c, Psycho Ballistics Double Trigger, Smart Parts 12" Progresssive barrel, 32 Degree 6 stage xchamber, ACI Remote w/ Quick Disconnect and Slide Check, 12 volt Revvy, Hogue wraparound grips, Adjustable Gas thru stock. Co2 tanks 12, 20 and 65 oz.
The Barrel looks good with the logos on each side and the Porting.
No bad just good.
I have the 12" on my Co2 gun and the 14" on my Nitro gun. There is NO comparison to the stock barrel. These barrels are very accurate with the right paint.
It took a little while to try a bunch of different paint and find what the barrel liked. The Marbelizer and Diablo shoots great out of both guns. If you use "cheap' paint you will get "cheap" performance like chopping and curving shots,so its your call on the $ for paint.Experiment and see what runs best in your gun.
Around here cheap paint is $40.00 per case. Marbelizer is $ 98.00 per case. My two Tippy 98cs are among some of the most accurate guns that play on the local superfields.
stock spyder flash barrel and stock spyder java barrel
spyder java edition heavily upgraded; and a new spyder flash electonic....
adrenaline is excellent paint for this barrel...flash following in a close second
This barrel has never given me any problems...it has good range, is deadly accurate when i shoot adrenaline paint through it, and it has never let me down. I recommend this barrel to anyone with a good spyder gun.
i have no complaints with this barrel....i thought it might be cheap for only 50 dollars but i have had many many great times with this barrel..thanks smartparts!
Just read the other stuff i wrote..i love this barrel..
shoots very straight, always hit at least a human size target. with a res you can hit the same spot multiple times. broke very few balls, even with cheep paint.
nothing so far
this barrel works very well on my spyder 2-in-1 compact, i have the 14" version, originally i thought it might be to long, but it proved to be just fine. i play alot of woods ball, and i can shoot with extreme accuracy through thick brush.
-mine looks much better than the one in the pic. Mine has two logo's on the side, it says smart parts and the other one says progressive.
-it scratches easily.
-the porting isn't that hard to clean, just dry fire to clean out the porting.
Its great. and i got it for free from my friend. It looks great. Its really quiet and accurate. It didn't add much range even though im using the 14' but just raise your velocity.I use PMI/RPS paint cause it matches the medium bore of the barrel. Its only broken one ball, which wasn't RPS paint, it was team colors or somthin. Does smart parts have a new look for there barrels? cause i've never a smart parts barrel that looks like mine.
I have an Impulse and it comes stock. If any of you know anything about impulses or shockers they NEVER break paint so therfore I don't even own a squeegee, i swear to god!!! I've shot 3 cases through it and only 2 paint breaks. It shoots straighter than a lot of other stock barrels and it is a great upgrade i you don't have $200 to spend on a freak system or 110 for a Boomstick
Nothing, but I hear its a pain to clean, but if you had a shocker or impulse then don't worry about paint breaks.
I use a stock 12" on my impy w/vision eye
Any paint works well for an Impy :-)
I dunno I paid 650 for the IMpy w/vision eye so I dunno if it's worth the price
It's better than a lot of barrels that have a lot of hype, and I've used a boomy, and a freak system and a lot of others and this barrel is great. Only the boomy and Freak are better.
I would recomend it to someone, hell, just get an impulse with vision eye and NEVER worry about paint breaks again!!!
First of all, this is way better than my stock as with all other aftermarket barrels. I'm using the 12" on my spyder compact java and it works great. Honestly, I've have only had one break out of about 2500 rounds using Brass Eagle ( yes, the crap balls ). I have a hit diameter of 6' @ 90 ft. which, I think, is pretty good. I also have a red dot scope on my marker that helps out a lot when trying to center out the shots. I also found a sweet spot at 60' where it would hit the same spot over and over again. Using better paint helps out a lot too.
Nothing bad about it. Cleaning the porting isn't hard at all as "most" of the other reviews have mentioned. Just turn that marker upside down shove it up someones candy @ss! no no no.... just turn the gun upside down, making sure no balls are in the barrel and cover the end with your hand and fire... the paint should shoot out the portings.
Barrel is worth the cost. I could get it for about 45 dollars at iisports which is comparable to the prices on the internet. Overall, i would reccommend it to everyone. In fact my friend wants to buy it from me after seeing what it could do.
