While the ceramic is being applied teflon is injected into the pores of the aluminum, resulting in the slickest, yet most durable surface in the world. These barrels are quiet, light, and accurate. Available in 12", 14", 16", and 20" for most guns.
The J&J Performance Ceramic Barrels are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase them new.
Various stock spyder barrels

Empire Vents Cylus
I always use Xball bronze or Draxxus Blaze, mindight or recsport.
All of which seen to be fine in this barrel.
this barrel is light, cheap and available for almost any marker.
using it on my Spyder clone I saw incredible improvements in accuracy and sound.
The make up of this barrel is as fantastic as it sounds, the super slick interior almost eliminates ball breakage in the barrel, in which case it is possible to shoot through in-game.
Although this is not a %100 cleaning the barrel, it is just a quick fix and is better then what would result in other barrels.
The generic bore size of this marker is god and bad.
Being a generic bore size allows for the use of most paintballs with normal results,
however it is likely that at some point you will be using paint that does not match this bore very well and it will decrease your performance, just a little.
If this barrel came in a model with changeable bore sizes, it would be fantastic,
but then it would cost $90 or more.
For being a barrel so good at what its supposed to do, and so cheap, but lacking the bore changing high end barrels.
I'll give it 8 out of 10
PMI Marballizers or any other type of high-grade paint, but Diablo Heat works just fine.
Self-cleans, Quiet, Light, Aesthetics
Gets scratched easily - Handle with care!
This is the best barrel you can get for under 50 bucks. It costs 35 dollars in some places. When one of your paintballs chop inside of your barrel, expect the next one to clean it right out! I always handle the barrel with care, but you can tell by the feel of it that it can get scratched easily if not properly stored, or if you accidentally scratch it while playing.
Sure, it cleans out your barrel, but this barrel is one of the quietest barrels I have ever come in contact with. It's also lightweight and compact. It also looks great on most guns.
Definitely get this barrel if you're looking for an upgrade to your gun.

If you get the inside messed up you might screw it up pretty good
Great barrel, accurate and shoots thorugh breaks. but you will have to clean it if you break 3 or 4 in the barrel because then it tends to lose that quality and starts to break everything that goes through.
i fell in love with the barrel when i first got it. Many people will back me up when i say this is one of the best barrels for the price.
I reccommend this to anyone who wants to get a good barrel thats cheap and will compete with the big boys.
Custom built Karnivor w/ too many upgrades to list
anything small or medium bore
i got this barrel for my spyder TL-X and it works great. it is tons lighter than the TL-X stock barrel and is way more accurate(duh). the only problem i have had is how easily it scratches. their is long silver streaks down the sides( i actually think they look cool).
This is my first barrel besides the stock barrel for my A-5.
Mostly stock A-5 and 3000 Nitro/20 oz. CO2
Really doesnt matter
Reliable, Durable, Accurate, stealthy
Didnt find any
I needed something besides the stock barrel for Invasion of Normandy at Skirmish. I was shopping around and saw the J&J trailer. They had barrels in my price range so I picked up the Crematic. As soon as I started playing I saw a difference. It was much more accurate than the A-5 stock barrel. I also never had 2 clean it. I went on a mission with my team and a couple of other people. One guy comes up to me and asks if IM leading the mission. I say no, why do you ask. He said because you have the A-5 with the big barrel (I got the 14'). I thought that was really cool that a complete stranger thinks I'm a hot shot because I have a big barrel on my A-5.
You'll get attention (not from the enemy). It adds range and its very low mantince.
I have used other name brand barrels like the SP Teardrop. It compairs and I think it is even better!
14'' J&J Ceramic
Pure Energy Remote
Any kind of premium paint. If you want those most out of this barrel, buy good paint, no the cheap stuff!
Accurate, Stylish, Cheap
I must say, a friend told me to buy one of these. Boy am I glad I did. The barrel is perfect. Very accuarate, quite, cheap and everything you need form a barrel. I would suggest this to anyone. It is, in my opinion, one of the best 1 piece barrels you can buy. The only downfall is the coating on the outside. It scrathes very easily. But hey, its not the looks that count is it? I give this barrel a 10
If you looking for a cheap, accuarate and all around great barrel, this is the one for you!
20oz Pure Energy Co2
14" J&J Ceramic barrel
A medium-bore ball is good.
A little quieter
Doesn't self-clean very well
I bought this barrel for $30 shipped. Its reasonably quiet, but not very much more than the stock barrel. I must say it looks extremely nice on my gun. Its black for all you woodsballers. I purposely broke a ball inside this barrel, and I was quite underwhelmed with the self-cleaning. Balls still went flying which ever way they pleased. Overall, this is a very nice barrel for the money. My friend bought one too, and another friend might be buying one also.
I reccomend this barrel for anyone who wants a good barrel for a good price.
i bought this barrel about 2 or 3 months ago and have used several times since then. Its a good barrel. It definitely has proved to be more accurate over my stock spyder barrel and i also found my gun to be much more quieter. But j and j advertises this barrel as to being ceramic so when so break a ball, all you have to do is shoot 1 or 2 shots through it and all the paint is gone. My first time using it was put to its first test, i had broken a ball when i shot a couple of shots of air i didn't do much. It took some paint out but not alot. My second time i had got shot where the holes were and i had not known. The next game, the shots were curving like an apex. Its a good barrel but it doesn't have any ceramic feature.
its a barrel, it does what it was supposed to do. I chos this one over the sp proggressive because of the ceramic part.
This barrel is really nice except for the fact that it makes the balls corkscrew a lot. I cant seem to get any accuracy at all from this barrel. But on the other hand, it is really quiet, not picky on paint, and it looks awesome on a tippmann. If i could get the accuracy factor changed, i would definetyl keep thhis barrel forever.
If u can get it fixed so it shoots straight, i would say to buy this barrel immediately, it does everything u want a barrel to do.
any except brass eagle (if u use be u should stop paintballing right now)
any paint works, quite, accurate
no o-ring, some people dont like the looks, but i like it...
This barrel is very light, soo light it seems u might break it, but trust me, you wont, it is very accurate, i like it alot mor than the sp progressive i used to have. over all a great buy, i couldnt ask for any mor, + the shoot clean really works! its not just hype, it take about 5 shots but its clean e-nuff to shoot again.
Buy it, its one of the best for the price i give it a 8 just because it has no o-ring and the cp 1 peice and bigshot are mor accuarte, but not by much
